    Exclamation GW2: dungeon armorsets + all dungeons

    Hi there

    I've got something you might have learned from this betaweekend:
    -) the dungeon armorsets
    -) the dungeon weapons
    -) the actual names and levelranges of the 8 dungeons.

    lv.35 dungeon: Ascalonian Catacombs
    "The Ascalonian Catacombs are located on the Planes of Ashford. That cursed place is home to angry spirits of Ascalonians who were transformed by the Foefire."
    lv.45 dungeon: Caudecus's Estate

    It's a Krytan mansion located in Beetletun, home of the powerful and wise Minister Caudecus. I've never been there but I've heard it's a great sight.
    lv.55 dungeon: Twilight Arbor
    "Twilight Arbor is a cavern in Caledon Forest and home to the Nightmare Court. It reflects their twisted and sadistic view of the world. If you head there, be careful!"
    lv.65 dungeon: Sorrows Embrace
    "It's more of a fortification than a series of caves in Dredgehaunt Cliffs. The place is thick of Dredge, of course, and the Inquest are in there doing who knows what."
    lv.75 dungeon: Citadel of Flame
    "The Flame Legion's main base, tucked away in the northeast of Fireheart Rise. It's full of crazed Charr, and they're lead by one who thinks he can become a god."


    lv.80 dungeon: Crucible of Eternity
    "The Crucible of Eternity is the Inquest's most powerful lab, located near Mount Maelstrom. It's host to nefarious researchers conducting myriad dangerous experiments."
    lv.80 dungeon: Honor of the Waves
    "The Honor of the Waves is a Kodan Sanctuary, a massive floating city of ice in Frostgorge Sound. I heard it's actually sinking, but I hear so many stories these days."
    lv.80 dungeon: Arah

    "It was the first city built in Tyria, but it's majesty was twisted and corrupted when Zhaitan awoke. It's now a dangerous place, it's history lost to foul beasts and the undead."
    Just go to Lions Arch and look for yourself. The dungeon vendors each wear the heavy armorset from the dungeon they represent. They tell you infos about the dungeon and sell light, medium and heavy armorsets + weapons for dungeon-tokens (each dungeon has it's own kind of token).


    for the pictures I used NO SHADOWS, I noticed no difference with High-Res Armor on- and off-option. Wanted to repost the pictures with shadows, but the characters stand in the shadow and you can't see the details as well as without shadows.

    lv.35 dungeon: Ascalonian Catacombs;
    heavy set: Ascalonian






    lv.45 dungeon: Caudecu's Estate
    heavy set: Nobleman





    lv.55 dungeon: Twilight Arbor
    heavy set: Nightmare





    lv.65 dungeon: Sorrows Embrace
    heavy set: Dredge







    lv.75 dungeon: Citadel of Flame
    heavy set: Flamelegion







    lv.80 dungeon: Crucible of Eternity
    medium set: Inquest







    lv.80 dungeon: Honor of the Waves
    heavy set: Koda







    lv.80 dungeon: Arah
    medium set: Orrian








    and an old friend nearby: Dougal Keane (he answers a few questions)







    So this is very interesting, certainly something to discuss. A pity that the hi-res texture option in the graphic settings didn't work yet.


    You might want to take a look in this forumpost on Guru:
    http://www.guildwars2guru.com/topic/...s/page__st__90 there are a lot of different looking armorsets from the Beta-Weekend and perhaps there is something there for you too. I try to link some of the pics here, but the new forum is kind of strange...

    I liked the Twilight Arbor set but the image of Dougal Keane was the real winner for me <3 those books.
    It needs to be 20% cooler.

    My part in this story has been decided. And I will play it well.

    Tried to take a better pic of this set. Kinda hard without first person view and with norn male.
    But anyway sudden urge to create Asura Warrior increased by 1000%.

    And if we can trust the icons of each item (some sets had wrong icons), this is the orrian heavy set:

    how did you do this? I used the max. resolution setting, highest possible textures and other high settings. Only the "high resolution character textures" didn't change anything for me... ???

    Wow. I really did not expect them to be so insane. I often thought Gw2 would suffer from all the gear looking somewhat similar with mehful designs, but these...wow.

    I am VERY confused as to how your game looked so low on the highest settings.
    Perhaps they capped you and wouldn't let you changed the high res char textures, or something?

    I don't like them to be honest. The only one I kind of like is the Honor of the Waves one.

    Guys, how does this work? Like i can't imagine a mage running around with the catacombs gear?

    That's why it says "Heavy set" right beside it, since it is for heavy classes.
    There is a light and medium version as well, but we do not have the screenshots for it yet.

    The sets in the op look way better on high settings btw. Op was probably hardwre capped.

    Op your settings seem to be on low, with a low resolution and no fsaa. What kind of hardware do you have?

    I saw them. Found them all unappealing and rather generic.

    Oh god, they have plate dresses in this game too. WHO THE FUCK RIDES INTO BATTLE WEARING A DRESS?! I do love the nobleman armor though. The ascalonian set looks like something straight out of fire emblem. I'm more eager to see what the damn dungeons look like!

    What is your definition of unique then...A Commando-esque armorset isn't unique?
