Nicholas Sandford
The Presearing Community would like to congratulate ArenaNet on 4 wonderful years of gaming excellence! We would also like to say "Thank you!" for the great additions to pre-searing in the form of Nicholas Sandford and Professor Yakkington. They couldn't have been put in a more perfect location. Several longstanding suggestions have also been implemented (as well as new stuff) - Style and Gender changes, Extra Storage, Equipment Packs, Account-wide Hall of Monuments, Nick and Yakkington in post-searing, Zaishen Challenge Quests, and the Zaishen Menagerie.
