    Minis are the most useless collectibles in the game. At least the backpacks can carry stats.

    I take it back. Town clothes are the most useless thing in the game.

    It's just gonna be confusing once scarlet officially dies and her previous dungeon path is still around. Unless they re do it after she dies... but its just gonna be a big WHAT when she dies a new people go and do her path.

    I didn't give a shit about Scarlett before, and I definitely don't give a shit about her now.

    Seriously Anet, give us some ELDER DRAGON content. For fuck's sake, it's what the game was sold on!
    Really, it was sold on elder dragons? Here I thought it was sold on being a (real) MMO (in contrast to GW1, a CCORPG) with a living world, that happens to currently be facing the elder dragons.

    Well, to be fair. The very first promo for GW2 was all about the Elder Ds.



    I recall GW1 players losing their damn minds over the above video.

    Minis may be useless statwise, but they sure get noticed. Since I got the mini Tequatl I can't tell you how many times people have commented on it. I feel like a veritable Mother of Dragons

    And I *always* note players with the Lliadri pet.

    On one hand, I suppose if we ONLY focused on the Elder Dragons we'd be in danger of being out of content in a few months.

    On the other hand, constantly dangling them there while running through a bunch of sub-plots that came from nowhere and actually seem like bigger threats than anything the dragons have done in-game seems a little silly.

    Llidri pet was a disappointment since it just turns into a black blob and the actually boss fight was stupid -not- hard.

    Teq pet is nice because it has animations to it unlike 99% of minis so it is more noticeable.

    Other than the camera being annoying (like it always is when it matters) what was "stupid not hard" about it? I found it rather fun.

    I have never noticed a single miniature except that orange tabby cat- because my sister had it. Nor have I ever heard comment or remark about any mini any other player carried around with them by any other player. Like ever.

    Not in GW2, not in any MMO.

    I have been playing MMOs consistently since 1999.

    Step 1 equip zerker gear
    Step 2 get to phase 2
    Step 3 DPS her down in 7 seconds

    Yeah, I was gonna post the same thing in reply to Karizee. Hell, beyond the obvious uselessness of them, you can barely see them anyway.

    Oh, so that explains why there was so much QQ over it being impossible.

    I don't think the game was sold on elder dragons

    for me that was one part in which I sort of disliked, too many dragons in games

    Initially I had hoped that the mini pets were going to be used for Polymock. But I have lost hope of that game ever coming around.

    You know how useless they are when you forget town clothes actually exist.

    I completely forgot about them.

    Honestly, if anything was sold on elder dragons, it was GW:EN...but even that had more going for it.

    And I dunno. Polymock (and bar brawling) were the two definitive minigames/activities ANet originally mentioned, and...we haven't seen signs of either.

    Also, while she is amusing, Scarlet is the least interesting villain I've seen in a while.

  16. #56
    well...while I love the lore of the game, ArenaNet doesn't make interesting characters, at least in my opinion

    But like the second big video was also the Races video. Which emphasized the unity needed to overcome the Elder Ds.

    And the launch video was all about breaking from the "norm" to face Zhitan...

    I think all the promotion videos leading to launch, sans manifesto, involve or emphasis the Elder Ds to one degree or another. Only with the Halloween patch last year did the promos change focus.

    It just seems like they have a hard time creating motivations for their villains other than "Just Because".

    Which, granted, tends to be standard fantasy fare. But at least some games/writers try to do it a little better.

    Well, while the elder dragons, especially Zhaitan, were prominent, I would disagree with them being what the game was sold on. I mean, it's like saying "WoW was sold on Ragnaros, he's dead, now we need to fight the other Elemental Lords". Sure, Zhaitan was quite prominent (and the center of the Personal Story), and while Jormag, Kralkatorrik, and Primordius are known, they've never been the central focus (including in marketing)...unless you count The Shatterer as putting Kralkatorrik in the spotlight (since he was the first dragon shown...and maybe even the first event shown)

    There's a big ass dragon with a less than 1% success rate wreaking havoc in Sparkly Fen and causing floods of tears on the forums released a mere week ago lol.
