    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.

    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).

    Completing the pvp seasonal reward structure gives around 100g...im doing that
    Also the last "chest" is an infinite repeatable 25gold reward...i intend to farm that.
    Why i need gold?
    To have fun giving it away to randoms

    Also, PvP fashion Wars:

    I used to get the final Byzantanium chest from the ranked seasonal PvP reward track when I was doing ranked SPvP every day two or three years ago, but that was when I was working towards the PvP legendary armor set. Then I got all of the timegated mats and then added up the costs and realized I would have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy the gold I needed to buy the mats to craft the set, or spend thousands more hours playing on the same small SPvP maps farming the gold.

    Gold in the game is not hard to find and not a huge deal. You can get buy with about 100g, going over when you need to buy stuff in bulk. Farming high values to suddenly get your gold up to buy some material you need is pretty simple. Want to make a piece of ascended gear but need gold? Go do some expansion world bosses, sell the unid bags you get, sell amalg gemstones from meta chests, easy gold for what you need.
