    Set your expectations low

    Something boring...

    • No mortar/cannon/burning oil weekend
    • No veteran grub/warg/ice wurm weekend
    • No ambient creatures weekend
    • Built siege (arrowcart/treb/cata) can only damage other siege
    • ram weekend: No catapults , arrowcart, or trebs weekend, only rams
    • Instabilities weekend : all lava burns on desert , slippery slope on alpine snow that can be mitigated by stability

    PvE-inspired:

    • Legendary weapon upgrade to mistforged weapons (it's been requested before here)
    • another weapon skin nobody uses
    • Reward track bonus when PvE gets exp bonus (happened before)

    Unlikely:

    • new "green BL" map with no underwater that is smaller than alpine in size that has the alpine layout, alpine kept for blue BL
    • alliances

    Skirmish Tickets are now usefull.

    Asurans are now usable as catapult and trebuchet ammo. Launch Asuran Warriors with the "Death From Above" trait for bonus damage.

    (lol)..Bookah bashers.

    Implies something more than the next event, which I believe was last Sept'

    They introduced gliding in wvw during ep 5 or ep 6 of LS3, I don't remember the exact episode, but I remember it was Pre POF and a long time after HOT.

    It's Mounts!

    [HaHa] Hazardous Hallucination - Sorrows Furnace

  • Legendary weapons for wvw pls!

    probs a new mount that only works in wvw, and cant jump nor fly ofc.

    So it'll run a couple of meters and then get stuck on the terrain?

    Ok I rather run.

    Maybe No Downstate; that's like the only special thing that has worked.

    YES ! Downstate is annoying for both sides

    Blizzard and Arenanet are merging

    So now there'll be a portal in the Mists to Azeroth

  • Since Camelot is slated to come out this year I'm guessing it's Alliances. I wouldn't hold it past Anet to hold a relatively easy and much needed fix for wvw in their back pocket to try to staunch the hemorrhaging this game may have on it's already dwindling player base.

    LOL skirmish tickets are the most useful out of wvw - leg backpack, leg armor, trinkets etc

    What?
    If you already have the Leg Backpack and armor, what are you buying thats not crazy overpriced?

    A full set of trinkets are over 100g in Memories and 1310 Tickets.
    Who would ever buy this!?

    And NO! I would not pay 20g ( memories) for a stat swap.

    Im currently at nearly 21k Tickets and there is nothing on the vendor im crazy enough to buy.

  • Narrator: It was Mounts.

    ....

    Really people, I don't know how you can come to any other conclusion. They got to push those POF and Mount Skin sales everywhere they can.

    Gonna go with one of the following options:

    • New 3rd borderland to replace ABL duplicate
    • Mounts (yes I'm fully expecting some kind of mount system to make its way in wvw eventually - too lucrative with mount skins to ignore)

    I don't expect any new content because that would be way too much to ask from a company of this size.

  • Dolyaks mounts that require POF, gotta drive those sales

    400 employees working directly/indirectly on one game for ~10 years. There is no evidence that they have been working on another game in this time period. They most likely have, but nothing has come out of it yet.

    Meanwhile we have gaming studios of similar and smaller size that pump out content at a much faster rate plus making more than one game at a time.

    So tell me, how is 400 employees considered small/not enough for a mmorpg studio? Oh and please don't come with the blizzard comparison, kitten is getting old.

    Dan, believe it or not, we get it. It’s useful for us despite the cost.

    We play the game and the tickets come. I’ve made two legendary sets because of convenience.

    Yeah. It is still disheartening that there are no game designers left. Only skin shop artists and copy-paste PvE content "creators".

    Exactly. The new WvW mount will be a wheelchair.

    Lol, at the rate WvW get's it's updates it seems fitting.

    Nah, but for real though. I hope it's good and wanna say Thank You @Anet for at least trying.

    considering that you can statswap them for less than 2g (shards of glory) and they will likely have all future stats, i think its worth the investment of buying them. (if you do not play spvp/fracs that is)

    read this, become a better player now.

  • Zephyra.4709Zephyra.4709 Member ✭✭✭

    Ya'll late to the party. Had my mount in WvW since HoT.... the almighty Dune Roller. CHARR MASTER RACE. B)

    For real though from a business pov it's probably mounts. Gliding passed. Gotta' get that moolah. Honestly I'd rather they just give universal base speed increase to all classes and call it a day... don't want lag worse than it is with x 50 rainbow blob mounts loading in.

  • DemonSeed.3528DemonSeed.3528 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Hm, a wvw chair that is a toilet which you do "the thinker" pose while sitting on the "throne". I need one.

    Its sitting in my bank.

    Way easier to make 2-3 amor sets and swaping them if needed.

    Yeah, i know about that the shards of glory.

    Getting Trinket sets from living world maps is and always was way easier and cheaper.

    And lets be honest.
    What chance is there Anet will give us better stat types then Marauder and Minstrel in the future.

  • Baldrick.8967Baldrick.8967 Member ✭✭✭

    They finally got around to changing the hairstyle on the NPC to the left of the merchant in EBL!!!! whooooo awesome!

    That's the big announcement.

    Or maybe they will tell us when alliances will arrive 'third quarter 2019'?

    Or maybe they are switching to the amulet system for wvw- that would just be too funny.

    Seriously now, probably a return of an old event, dressed up as an 'awesome announcement'. Or some new skin. Or something we really don't need, like mounts.

  • Or how about dropping links since they pretty much destroyed any sense of community as people used the links to bandwagon around?

    I have used my legendary on 4 different light toons in the past 4 months, and kept storage space.

    Is it the cheapest? Nope.

    But more convenient for me.

    If we get legendary trinket in wvw. I would asume its with the next Lw episode, when raids get the full legendary ring.

    I also asume we get Aurora 2.0 for season 4.

    Could be goot timing.
