There’s been a few things floating around the internet regarding an explorer’s flag. We’ve seen some datamining data on Curse’s database site (seen in the picture to the left). It appears that there are little meta games where players can put on their explorer’s hat and try to find the farthest point in the world and claim it as their own.
It seems that there is also an inclusion of in game ladders and rankings that you can see in game. This is something we haven’t even seen yet, but it appears we’ll also be playing GW2 for high scores! This is something recently seen in Rift, and we’re happy to see it coming for GW2 as well.
There have also been rumors of treasure maps as well. Keep your eyes out here at Guild Wars 2 Junkies for more info!
