    I've been holding off on making this exact post, and I've felt myself slipping...

    Look, ANET has given out so many snippets of the upcoming patch, more than usual, why not just a tiny bit more, and tell us about the new legendary... :sunglasses:

    Why is that "the question"? There is literally zero reason to doubt the greatsword will come with this episode.

    If we get an actual trailer (rather than a teaser) not showing it, then it's reasonable to question it.

    I have farmed thousands of materials for this. I will be ready.

    And then not craft it day 1 even though I could because I am lazy and I can't be bothered because I rather try to play the story instance that will crash as everybody in the world tries to do the same

    let me elaborate, you can make those https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Shard_of_the_Dark_Arts
    and convert into those
    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Shard_of_Arah (there is no new shards for GS yet)

    its 100 -->75
    but offhands shards ask for 10 Elder Wood Plank+ 20 Mithril Ingot
    while 2hand weapon's shards ask for 30 Elder Wood Plank+ 40 Mithril Ingot
    So even if you make 400 offhand shards and convert into 300( you need 290) 2hands, you can save some trees for Tyria :)

    P.S> Legs 2 and 2.5 are scary, mhm

    No, absolutely not.

    How so? Because they can get legendary status for the price of a single weapon? Wait.. They can already do that. Eternity is a status symbol because it's the most expensive to make legendary by far. That's not going to change.

    Plus we all know it's coming because it is the last of the set.

    There are already 2 in fact they had three since release.

    I think people aren’t realizing the fact that there’s also underwater legendarys.

    Last in set would include underwater legendaries you know.

    Generation 3 won’t start till end of next season atleast in my opinion

    They have removed that insensitivity for me the day they attached handle to ironing board and called it legendary Greatsword.

    They've already stated that there will be no Gen 2 underwater legendaries. They also haven't made black lion skins for underwater weapons for a while now.

    Greatsword is the only weapon (aside from underwater ones) to not have a Gen 2 legendary, ergo it will be in the next episode.

    I get being annoying the greatsword has had three legendaries since the beginning, but Sunrise, Twilight, and Eternity are particle effect nightmare surfboards—a new one that has a different design can only be a good thing and players shouldn't be punished for a design choice made ~7 years ago because the devs at the time thought something was cool.

    Ideally you would be right about underwater but they originally said they would not be including underwater legendaries in the set, and that was when they thought they'd be shipping a full set in a timely fashion during the relevant expansion. Then they had to just stop for a bit, then they resumed but without the journeys, and even then they only managed one per LS episode. Then they got severely downsized. They never promised underwater ones and they have fewer resources to work on them now, so if they deliver any such it will be a very nice surprise but there should be no expectation it will actually happen.

    As to a Gen 3, there has been zero hint from them that such a thing might happen. Again, nice surprise if it does, not a good idea to expect it (and then possibly get angry at them for not doing it even though they never promised it at all).

    In fact I'd hope they didn't add in underwater ones just yet. After all there's a lot of player hope (and a lot of dismay, depends on who loves/hates underwater combat) that there will be a major story push to deal with Selbbub, and that would be the time to offer underwater legendaries, possibly even new underwater weapons entirely. If they add onto the spear/trident/speargun trio and add legendaries to that, probably a lot of people will be glad they didn't sink resources into the current ones.

    As to the greatsword, I'm looking forward to it. If it's not a joke to wield, I may be tempted ... not that I've fully made any legendary other than HOPE but there are a few I really like and might push towards at some point. Once the GS is released, I'll know all the options expected to be available and can work towards the one I like most.

    People should temper their expectations and remember that just because it's s new leggy great sword that it's design doesn't have to suit/fit their personal tastes.

    Some people will be happy. Others will be bitterly, bitterly disappointed.

    Okay, but that still doesn't explain why you think there will be another legendary to begin with.

    The precedent of 10 Living World episodes, without any break? Statements that they'll keep introducing Legendaries with LW episodes? For 100% honesty, I can't remember if they said something like "until the set is done" or if they just said they would keep on.

    The only deviation since they resumed production of legendaries is that ep 3.6 dropped two weapons and a trinket...

    With only one weapon left in the originally promised gen 2, I find this out-of-the-blue questioning (both you and Dami above) perplexing...
    As I said above, if we'd gotten a real, full, trailer and that didn't even hint about a greatsword, then I could understand doubting.

    It's also fitting to have the new legendary greatsword—arguably the legendary type that tops the popularity chart—be in the final episode of LW4. It caps off both the story and the gen 2 legendaries. Not releasing it means starting LW5 with a random gen 2 legendary and possibly messing up their rhythm of whatever they're planning on replacing legendaries with in future releases.

    Plus the only break in gen 2's releases was when they literally did not have the resources to keep doing detailed world-wide quests, hence why when they resumed with Eureka, new legendaries were pure crafting.

    Unless they explicitly state there will be no legendary release, it's strange to assume after all this time that they wouldn't release a legendary with this upcoming episode. Among other things, I can only imagine the blowback from the community if that happened, and Arenanet's run down their reserves of banked goodwill.
