    Is this shit raids? Because this looks infinitely more hype than I remember literally any of the trailers for raids at the time. Like...I kinda wanna do these. Just for comparison -




    Seriously, neither of these trailers does a thing for me.

    Recently decided to reinstalled GW2 after many many years. I have 2 level 80's, a Guardian and a Revenant, but I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing on either of them.

    So, I was wondering if there is a good site with guides and builds? I googled a bit but only really found links to "MetaBattle" which is confusing the fuck out of me (then again, that's not hard).

    The twisted marionette event is up:

    Not a fan of only having a short window every 2 hrs for the public event part of it but considering the group I got into failed it maybe thats a good thing.

    Interesting and pretty in depth piece on the rollback that hit EU servers last year. It's a bit out of the blue but I'm quite down with it. Anet has remained frustratingly opaque over the years, so a peek behind the curtains like this is nice. Kinda hoping with the new leadership (the fact that we actually know who's running Anet/GW2 now is nice) that this is the start of them turning a page.

    It's still wild to me that a 20 year old studio working on a nearly 10 year old game is still so drastically uneven and searching for a direction.

    I actually remember them doing posts like this but usually not on their sites main page. Usually on reddit or some random forum post that would get linked on reddit. The closer they got to that massive layoff, the less frequent these kind of posts became. I'm only aware of them through closely follow Arenanet. Some of the most insightful behind the scenes 'blog-entries' about the game are on fricken reddit. Not even small stuff, key stuff like why certain items aren't in your characters wallet or x feature is the way it is are buried in random spots between their forums (where its probably not hightlighted) or reddit. Example, I remember reading a dev go over why certain things go into storage/wallet and others don't while making a very convincing rebuttal to people saying its just so Anet can sell more inventory slots. The post would have made for a great blog post on their front page...its lost on reddit somewhere.

    Tomorrow is the day! Our first in depth look at the End of Dragons expansion.
    I am actually super excited, probably the most I have been for a non WoW mmo xpac ever.

    Looking at how Anet has communicated and acted over the last few months, it definitely seems like they are pouring everything into giving Gw2 a massive shot in the arm. Here's to hoping it works out for them and the game, Gw2 is a really unique mmo compared to the other top ones on the market and I want to see it do as well as possible.

    Minute 45:37 for the new specialization...

    Edit: Oh you mean a mini-recap? Too early i guess

    Oh, ANet. There you go again.

    You announced this big reveal three months ago. And once again, your presentation amounts to a fart in the wind, if you'll pardon the crudeness.

    I just don't know why they're consistently so bad at this one particular thing.

    Seeing as this day was called info dump, I expect some good announcements from the video! And then seeing above comment...

    Huh?

    Major story hints
    New features (fishing, 2 player mounts, boats, guild hall)
    CM strikes (guessing they are taking a page from FF14 when it comes to raid content)
    2 elite spec reveals
    First beta date and beta plan
    Alliance reveal for old/returning plauers
    Dx11 beta window and planned graphics refresh
    Release window
    Preorder

    It's not super detailed, but Massively has a decent recap of the things announced. No timestamped videos for it all, but you can at least get the highlights.



    I have no clue why this exists but I'm kinda hype about co-op battle turtle mounts.
