    Legendary - Visual effect changes 28 January 2013

    From patch notes:

    Visual effects on some legendary weapons have been polished:
    • Eternity: Fixed a bug that caused the Sunrise effects to play on the Twilight version of the sword.
    • The Moot: Added visual-effects polish and footfalls.
    • Kamohoali'i Kotaki: Added visual-effects polish.
    • Frenzy: Added visual-effects polish.
    • Kraitkin: Added visual-effects polish.
    • Quip: Added visual-effects polish and footfalls.
    • The Predator: Added visual-effects polish and footfalls; updated projectile and hit effects to match the weapon's look.
    • Howler: Added visual-effects polish and footfalls.
    • The Dreamer: Updated the projectile effect.

    Changes in action:

    Feel free to post more/better videos/images if you see them appear. ^_^

    I think it is nice to see that more legendaries to get attention that they deserve. Some of my guildies have The Dreamer and The Quip that have been pretty much unnoticeable if they do not spam the sound. Will see how many ponies I will see flying tonight at our WvW grouping.

    What do you think?

    Legendary wielders gathered in Lion's Arch today along with huge crowds admiring the effects.

    And all I can say is RAINBOW PONIES!! Multi-shot ranger ability has FIVE rainbow unicorns streaking across the sky leaving a trail of rainbows behind them.

    (that thing is SO much awesome!)

    Many times this. As a ranger lover...THEY need a badass bows...not just "girly" ones. Thats the main reason why Im not working on legendaries XD

    Most likely they will add more legendaries with expansion.

    And of we still have non-legendaries like:





    Those are from mystic forge: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Myst...ge/Other_Items

    I know all of them and none of them are legendary or have cool animation stuff (why they aren't legendaries) meaning they aren't close to making up

    I would have preferred a glow and footsteps too.

    People still won't recognize it as a Legendary if you're not shooting it.

    I really wish I had the money/means to make The Dreamer. Not only is it deliciously girly, but I would be perpetually giggling every time I used it on my male Charr ranger. XD

    Edit: Hah! My bf said, "That bow just got 20% cooler!"

    Anyone else think the Dreamer effects look really retarded? I mean really? Rainbow unicorns? I can tell the Anet dev that did that animation was high at the time. It's just beyond me that the change made it past quality control.

    Is it bad I want to reroll ranger just for the dreamer?

    Rainbow unicorns, I'm not usually gay over things like that but ohmygod I WANT IT

    I think it's a showstopper. Damn near a Commander icon with the amount of people following someone with this bow in WvW lol.

    So I had decided to go for the Horn+Axe legendary combo after seeing the dreamer effect and not being impressed. After this change its back to farming The Dreamer!!! Dear god it looks amazing now.

    Yeah, so i'm still going for Quip, something about shooting confetti and bubbles and fireworks at people appeals to me greatly xD, and the Dreamer is an amazing legendary, to bad i don't like shortbows =(.

    PS: Rangers complaining about need for a manly bow, Kudzu says hi, there's nothing girly about grass and the like growing as you walk, and it kinda fits the whole nature magic using thing that rangers do -_-'

    I wonder what it looks like when Charr run. Now I'm picturing a full white Charr w/Kudzu as a feline Amaterasu. XD
