Without looking it up on the Wiki: Do you even know the name of the Legendary Harpoon Gun...?

Because I honestly do not. Same with the Trident. I’m only familiar with the Spear because of it’s unique shark theme and name.

    Without looking it up on the wiki, I don't know the name half the things in the game, because it's just a name; I care more about what things do (or sometimes how they look) then what jargon we use to describe them. For the longest time, my mesmer had skills such as Car Alarm, zipline into terrain, Illusionary Bearbow, and Bubble of Projectile Hate. Plus, seriously, how many veterans know that it's the Signet of Humility these days, instead of Polymoroph Moa or just "Moa"?

    Well, in that case let it be known I likewise don’t know what they look like either.

    Also, well, Legendaries are Legendaries after all. If any item in the game exists that people should, and do, know the names of it is them. :lol:

    The thought to make this thread just came to me because I realized that while I’m well-versed with most Legendaries (even those I never plan on getting) I had no clue about these underwater ones, and I wanted to see if I was the only one or if that is how most people are given the nature of underwater content. :hushed:

    Honestly, I don't even care about the names...names are meaningless imo, it's just another weapon; though perhaps one that isn't prevalent in the game.

    I can't remember what 1/2 the legendaries even look like. I remember most of the ones I like, and one or two others I see a lot but there's been more than once when I've had to go to the Wiki and check because I know there is at least one legendary for each weapon but I haven't got a clue what it is.

    Same with traits and skills. It's slightly easier now with traits, back before the system was reworked people would just say things like Fire IV or Beastmaster VII and I'd wonder how on earth they can remember the function and number of every single one. My mind retains a lot of useless information but that's not part of it.

    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."

    Now without looking to the wiki, can you write out the name of the legendary spear?

    If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.

    Koma-something Kotaki.

    I mostly remember the second part because it was based on the IRL name of the artist who conceived it, so it is a memorable lil’ tidbit like that.

    No and to be honest, even though I'm a beta player, I don't know the names of 80% of the Legendary weapons because I'm not interested in them, lol.

  • zealex.9410zealex.9410 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I only know the name of the spear because its a reference to kotaki.

    Why placing the importance on the name of legendary weapons when they are just simple gold sink? When not everyone cares to own them? TBF, I don't even remember half of the names of gen 2 legendary weapons, and some would escape my memory after sometimes. Why do you have to go round about to make your point?

  • Trise.2865Trise.2865 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes

    Frenzy. It summons and shoots piranhas.
    Kamohoali'i Kotaki (sp) is the spear. It summons sharks, and its name means "Shark God Kotaki" in Hawaiian.
    I don't remember the trident's name, but it summons creepy tentacles.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

  • Yes

    Yes I do. When I started to gather information about legendary weapons after playing the game for a while I disliked almost all of these weapons (too much bling, tacky, pretentious, not my taste). But the harpoon gun caught my attention, I liked the idea of being surrounded by a swarm of fish, especially nice with a ranger. The harpoon gun is my only legendary weapon and I am not sure if I want another one.

  • Pifil.5193Pifil.5193 Member ✭✭✭✭

    If nobody told me otherwise, I would assume it would be called something along the lines of "Quaggan Deflator".

    The Trident legendary weapon is Kraitkin, with three serpents as its head.
    The spear is an unpronounceable mess that's themed around Sharks.
    The speargun is Frenzy, themed around Barracudas.

    @Zaraki.5784 said:

    Dagger is Claw of the Khan-Ur. It's a mini jewel-encrusted pizza cutter Bat'leth
    The rifle is the HMS Divinity, It has the stock of a rifle, the body of a Great Big Sailing Ship, and its barrel is a kitten Cannon
    the torch is Flames of War. It's a wedding cake 3-rowed silver candelabra with red candles that look like robed figures conjuring a mini Balthazar.
