Title: New expac Path of Fire coming 22 Sept.
Post by: Ginaz on August 02, 2017, 11:33:18 AM
New expac coming for GW2 soon.  Much sooner than I thought it would be.  Looks like they're finally adding mounts, which can also fight with you.  Also, some new zones, guild halls, elite specs and more.  I don't really play anymore so I'll probably hold off as I was pretty disappointed with Heart of Thorns.

The new costume you get as one of the bonus for the "deluxe" package is something special

Anyway, and I know I'm wierd, but I have to admit my lack of excitement for this expansion could only be measured by the large Hadron Collider. I guess its becasue I have been going through their story, for living story 3, which started off pretty decent and then went *splud* Its basically turned into "release a new grind map every 3 months" and its obviously what the punters want as the maps are full, but it leaves me cold. And we are already in the cycle of people jerking off about how great the new specs will be... which will last a week before they are nerfed, so why bother speculating.

I guess I'm getting older, wiser, or more of a miserable git.

Anyway I imagine they are pushing to wrap up the overall story as they see the writing on the wall for the game long term.

So everything that made this game different/better than WoW... they are implementing into the game.

I loved the original game but couldn't give a damn about the first expansion, it just sucked and made me not want to play.

If I wanted WoW, I'd play that instead.

I played the Demo. The map is nice, and the Graphics are very good. They Hydra enemy is in articular very well animated. The Mounts are well animated, but basically function like "you get one special attack with the mount and it vanishes leaving you with your skils" and can be summoned out of combat.

Otherwise... its a map. With tantilising interesting buildings shown in the outside demo area where you cant reach them. There is one story mission thats fun enough. And.. ya. I've seen enough of it really after an hour.
