    New race just dropped!



    Not really, but its a helm that's part of the Lunar festival. Anet went ahead and fully animated it, mouth flaps and everything.

    We have Dracthyr at home, honey.

    It looks surprisingly good. I might actually have to log back in and make sure I nab one.

    How do you even get it? Can't seem to see it on the TP.
    Black lion chests ?

    Interestingly enough the new armour set is only available through black lion chests as well instead, thought they would make it available for purchase instead.

    Its the reward for doing the Lunar New Year festival achieves. Takes about an hour tops.

    The armor that person is uses a miss of gem store and gameplay rewards

    I'm keeping expectations in check after the last update, but hoping this is a bit meatier with the new weapon and legendary armor 1.0. They did update the armor for charr to give more neck covering but...yeah even on legendary armor charr will forever be saddled with bad clipping issues and jank.

    Oh well, got my AA capped so I'm ready to start getting the bits I want from the next slate of rewards. That cat chair is gonna be super common but damnit, I love it.

    Charrs armor is a sad state. Something like taurens in wow. 90% of everything looks like shit, but when you get actually awesome look EVERYTHING clicks better than in any other race.

    Long Cat is back, and this time it has spread to all the races.

    Finally getting an inspect feature

    https://www.guildwars2.com/en-gb/new...ic-inspection/

    Article also talks about various QoL projects they've completed. Hints at a texture refresh thanks to DX11. Some backend tech they unlocked/came up with (say that because Anet has openly struggled with the games engine since launch).

    And first still of expansion 5, which comes out this year.

    I'm still old enough to 'memba when they were shit talking a DX11 upgrade saying it wouldn't provide many performance improvements (it did) or other benefits (it has, and is still bringing them).

    As much as I love their backend and hope they can make that work with other tech so they can continue operating games that have functionally zero downtime, I cannot fucking wait for them to abandon this fucking archaic engine. I'm tired of frequently getting 7 FPS in Amnytas because I happened to turn my camera towards teh center of the zone and not being able to have more than a handful of players on my screen at once without the game chugging and turning into a fucking slideshow.

    Are they going to switch engines?

    For GW2, absolutely not.

    But last I recall they're confirmed to be working with UE5 for their other project(s).
