I know it's not GW2 but I thought people might like to know - GW1 has had a graphics update! Apparently it happened earlier this week, but I've only just heard about it now (and then completely by chance).
It's not a massive change, they haven't re-done the graphics but they have added a lot of new and improved options which do make the game look better, including and 'advanced' option which does things like increase the level of detail and draw distance and makes sure it's always using the highest quality models (so no more 2D fuzzy trees suddenly replaced with 3D ones as you get closer). Even I noticed a difference after activating the new settings, and I normally struggle to spot small increases in graphics.
Even though I don't play GW1 very often these days I was happy to see it got an update, and I'm amazed the people who did it were willing to devote their free time to it. I'm happy to see there's still so much love for the original, even so long after the sequel was released.
"You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."
