never paid for any of the wow stuff except that flying mount. warcraft is kinda ugly in all cosmetic items. there where no costumes options when i played wow heavily.
Guild Wars 2 Insider posted some more pictures!
Well...the mines one should make Mif happy
Nice to see some more shots, but again def not the highest quality. The chars kinda look superimposed, particularly the one of the asura with the bow. But still awesome
And awesome armor once again. This game is just going to be incredible for armors. Although I did rofl at the Charr in blue...doesn't seem to fit somehow. Although the sword did scare me.
Pretty sure that is the guardian shield unless some other profession can make shields out of energy as well that look almost identical...
...also, zooming in on the purple one...it's edge is on the purple lines...the guardian one clearly has some substance and shield area beyond the blue lines.
Does anyone know if there will be an option to turn off the team side colored characters in pvp?

I think the shield is a mesmer ability. Look at the last two screencaps on that GWinsider post. You can see the Charr Mesmer (the notation under the screencap confirms it) next to a team member (What looks like a Norn Engineer) who doesn't have the shield. The Guardian party support ability places the shield on all nearby party members, so if it was the guardian ability it would be on the engineer as well. Also... it is CLEARLY purple and not because of an eye trick with the red armor.

If a guardian just has the shield virtue active(but not activated for everyone, just for himself as a passive bonus), the shield still shows for the guardian, but for the guardian only. You can see it on some guardian vids from gamescom. Combined with the fact that to me, it looks like heavy armor and he seems to be holding his 2H sword for melee(not sure if mesmer can do that). You can see a butterfly in the screenshot though. But that just may be a accidental mesmer portal.
