Armed with a new account because he can't find his old game key, Llew visits the local pub and awakens the next morning from his drunken stupor to begin life in Tyria on the correct server with his Gaiscioch friends and to create a new family of characters while he figures out how to play this game again from level 1. :-)

Will be playing core game for now to I can get used to how things work again.  

Cheers

One question to start with...what are living story seasons?  Are they something I can/should buy in addition to the two expansions to get up to date?  I didn't see this answered earlier in this forum.  

Thanks for the advice in advance.

The living story seasons are the gaps between expansions; if you're really into the story part of the game then it's worth it to buy so you know what happened just before Heart of Thorns starts or between Heart of Thorns and Path of Fire.  Current season takes off pretty much right after PoF.  My little sis had some confusion playing with out them, but overall they can be skipped and things still make some sense.

Personally, I think Living Story Season 3 is worth the buy for the easy access to ascended trinkets, back piece, and waterbreather in Bitterfrost Frontier. It would also give you access to Lake Doric for the leather farm. I thought the story for that season was also good. 

Please do not enable Pookha by giving him a Fiery Great Sword.

Of course you need HoT for LS3 and PoF for LS4 besides the unlock I believe. Both are worth making sure you have when you get the expansions not only to the stuff Yobam mentioned, but the access to more ways to get mastery points and other fun stuff to help grow the character. At least, get the LS3 for sure. I only got LS2 parts I missed when it happened to be 50% off for the full bundle, which made the entire thing cheaper than the cost for the parts I did miss. Always buy the bundles when you have the option because it saves you money in the long run. Even the more uber HoT with PoF and gems stuff might not be cheap one shot for some budgets, but best if you really want it because separate they will cost a lot more.

On that note, make sure you ask questions as needed in guild chat and even hop on voice to hang with the crew. We'll make sure you get it figured out and help you see how far you really want to take it ;)

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

Thanks all.  I bought the HOT and POF content as a bundle for now.  I've also put a ticket in to have ANET reset my password on my original account so I can find out what I have there and see if it's worth transferring the account over to Sanctum of Rall.  Having fun relearning the game with lowbies for right now though.  So much has changed from what I remember at launch.
