    I like the face of the boss.

    However, I am definitely not a fan of textures (especially trees and grass). They look like they are from Guild Wars 1.

    Honestly I'm not very excited about fighting more elementals, besides that though, other than some of those building assets, most of what's in the trailer looks pretty similar to what we've seen in past content before. I'm NOT saying that it wont be fun, but come on. I'd at least like to see them try a little harder to spice up what we are looking at. Hopefully what we've seen so far doesn't reflect what's in EoD too much.

    The trees looked really nice. Im hella excited for the new fractal weapon set as well.

    They look like a mix of Caledon Forest and Metrica Province.

    You seriously basing this on the ground texture and rocks you see or what?
    Nothing in that video gave me that vibe at all.

    I rather choose death.

    It looks like bits of Dragon Stand with Volcanic Fractal oddly thrown in.

    I’d have to agree that the video, at least on my phone, looks a bit flat compared to the zones they’ve released. It looks a bit like something they already had done and threw in some oriental buildings and pink cherry blossoms to give it a Canthan vibe.

  • I think i see bits of Cantha in this video, especially Shing Jea Monastery =)

    You can find flying rocks with very similar textures, especially on Metrica Province.

    I say this but I will play it the day it comes out, lol.

    That looks like another really long fractal.
    But the art is nice.

    Frost Citadel was supposedly inspired by Frozen, this is probably inspired by Mulan ;)

    Well It's only been 3 years. 3 years of waiting to get a single fractal CM boss.

    Exactly, you definitely explained it better than me.

    Maybe, it does say that once you have mastery of the fractal you can do the CM. Might require achievements to be completed before mastery is unlocked, might have difficult achievements to complete first before the CM.

    it seems like only the final boss will get a cm version and not the entire fractal. Sad.

    During the live stream they did say that they are doing things a bit different for the CM, perhaps the boss changes depending on the week or takes on characteristics of the other bosses?

    Yikes honestly. Like dont get me wrong if the fight is good ill praise them on that. But, after 20 months of no fraftal, and more than 3 years of no cm, to only potentially get a third of a cm is disappointing.

    Its will be nice ifs the fight its done well, but after the w8 its simply not enough and they need to do better.

    I have a mixed feeling about this fractal at the moment.. I do have high expectation :) my expectation include story, furniture and the look of the game the trees looks cool, but the map looks a combination of what we have seen volcano fractal, etc. what I would like to see is like some place closer to Asian this includes weather, more various plants. rocks mountains and importantly the creatures ..eg in black myth: WuKong trailer. but let see. Thanks for the free new map. :)

    They seem to be hyping the CM to be difficult with mechanical changes, plus doing all the achievements to unlock the CM in a way adds content.

    Welcome to Mesmer Wars 2.

    As for the Fractal aesthetic, I'm guessing either the assets for EoD aren't done yet or they want to mostly hold them back in order to keep EoD as fresh of an experience as possible.

    Concerning the CM, we'll just have to see. Considering it's just one fight it is a bit concerning though, especially as new "flagship" 100CM, it will be interesting to see what they do with the fight.
    If it's comparable to other CM's in length, it could be a bit much as ~15 minute non stop fight, if it's just a quick 3-5 minute fight it'll be fairly disappointing on the other hand, and also get farmed really, really hard and probably receive reward nerfs fairly quickly, which then screw everybody playing it normally - so I'm curious how they are going to balance that.

    In terms of Recs, I hope the non-CM version isn't overly long.

    Whatever the case will be, after 3 years of no new Fractal endgame content, I'm glad we are getting anything at all at least, and them trying to bolster the fractal population with a community event indicates to me that they are considering to put more resources into that content, should the population be there for it.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You might not want them, me, i am already worried they might be locked behind the CM.

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    Perhaps the criticism here is not about subjective taste and has more to do with the fact that the pink color spectrum is well represented in weapon skins already?

    With the multitude of weapon skins we have so far you could say that about most colors.

    While I admittedly have not checked all the weapon skins that statement sounds right. But it still leaves us with the question: Why not one of the few colors that is not currently incorporated in a weapon set instead? If nothing else it provides more variety...

    Which color specifically do you have in mind that is so lacking in weapon representation?

    Recoloured recycled skins. (Ree : Ree : is getting too common)

    Tried the new fractals as well. As of now, the balance seems to be off as most of the NPC attacks does low damage/misses. Power is highly favourable as stuff dies within seconds, including mini-bosses.
    There seems to be a bug : Firebrands with active Tome skills will not be able to pickup "wind charges", not sure if its the same for other classes. (Eg. Engi with Bundle weapon skills, Ele with conjures).

    Energy Dispersal is almost impossible to do, we tried for more than 1hr that specify achievement and we couldn't do it.

    Did you do Shadow Step/swapping to Shortbow Thieves? Seems like a pain otherwise.

    No thief in sight. Not needed anyway.

    Whatever color is currently least common. That being said, the abyssal set is not a bad looking set as far as I am concerned, though I am not sure that I will use any of them. And you pretty much hit the bullseye in regard to their acquisition.
