    Siegesuits info coming?:O

    So Guildwarsinsider has had (another) interview with some GW2 devs and there's some interesting info up and coming!

    Here you can see they held the interview massively.joystiq.com/2012/01/17/teasing-an-interview-with-guild-wars-2-on-pvp/ and the link to the short clip of the interview is there. It's a 56 clip and when asked about pvp and what's coming they shortly talk about trebuchets and at the end they mention... Siegesuits!

    The interview itself is apparently coming pretty soon (in the comments section at the interview clip the dude who held the interview said Jan 23rd), but that currently he can't release the interview yet as Anet said so.
    This might be cause there's a blog post coming up about it and they've to wait for it?

    Anyways, really exciting info ofc, since Anet seems to release info in waves, so we might get a lot more coming in the next week(s) (or at least I'm so delusional I'm hoping it's like that)

    P.s. Still can't post links

    It's actually with GuildWarsInsider.com

    Totally
    Makes me think of the mentally attuned powerstone golems from Destiny's Edge!
    Man! If those are in there........god...I hope I dream about that tonight xD
    An army of asura assualting a castle in golems...that might just keep me going until release.
    I'm going to cry like a little baby when Logan and Rytlock reconcile and have a glorious man-hug

    It indeed sounds like Asura tech. Thanks to Nektar for the link

    It's really interesting they're showing more and more 'special' mechanics though for pvp. If executed well (and I hope it will be) it'll make for some extremely interesting pvp;O
    Really wonder what those things could do though... Some kind of 'tank'like suits?

    I know that people automatically think of Asura when it comes to these suits, but I'm kind of hoping for some Charr inspired ones too; instead of sleek design something more steampunkish would be nice.

    Can't link, but if you go on youtube and look for "Guild Wars 2 Manifesto Trailer [HD]" at 3:24 there is shown something I think is a siegesuit.

    Do you mean the Asura that jumps out of the machine after being attacked by the Charr? Between 3:29 and 3:32?
    That's actually quite nifty that you remembered that It would be really nice if that'd be it though. It reminds me of the mechs in Lost Planet 2 in some way.

    What Nektar says is actually a valid point, considering it's a suit meant for sieging and the Charr are the most advanced in their military might (lorewise).

    Whatever way it goes, I bet it's a great one

    I think this may be a Charr creation rather than an Asura creation. If you look at Charr tech throughout their city you see more industry. I think siege suits would fit more inline with them than the Asura, besides Asura already have the golem elite skill and siege suit as the name implies must be strong enough to take out defenses around forts and castles. I think it will be much bigger and less mobile than the golem.

    Cant wait to hear the rest of the interview.

    s
    This is the most interesting part to me. If Anet has a specific date that they would allow this interview to be released, that implies that they themselves will be doing something of note before that date.

    I believe that was (one of?) the asura racial elite skill?

    Maybe they are those Charr machines that were walking in a trailer and were on fire?

    I wonder if those are engineer specific. Just a very uneducated guess.

    There are so many of those hominide looking machines in Asura part of the trailer...
    Rincewind: Ah! We may, in fact, have reached the root of the problem. However it's a silly problem and so I am suddenly going to stop talking to you.
