    Nice Greatsword. Looking forward to the release.
    Thanks for the Blog post, and forum post. =)

  • I look forward to that new mount but I don't know how to feel about that new greatsword ...

  • Arden.7480Arden.7480 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Absolutely worth waiting and gathering all the materials for such an amazing legendary GS!

    Seek, and you shall find.

    That...is a nice greatsword.

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

  • Get enough purple on that armour and you may as well call it the Branded Armour lel

    Doubt I'm getting that legendary sword anytime soon, I don't even have ascended gear yet. As for the mount, something tells me that's another 250G or so for it. Gonna be busy with Metas all week lel

    I expected a lot, but a mesmer-y GS was not one of those things! I don't mind though. Animations look gorgeous and even though it won't fit with the character that is going to use it I will cherish it and make it work.

    New armor set is amazing too. That will look really good depending on dye channels.

    Their entire channel can't be found on YouTube when searching directly, nor any specific video.
    When i load any trailer from the subscriptions list, it says the video is restricted.
    And when i link to their channel from there, it says their channel is disabled.

    Try changing your Youtube location. Top right drop down menu, second to last option. Might be some weird localization issue on your/their/youtubes end

    To me it looks more like a Glint crystal-dragon inspired Greatsword. If it were Mesmer-y, it would look a lot different. I guess you got that impression due to a Mesmer using it and the after effects when being stowed and pulled out. I do love it's look, though. For once, a greatsword that isn't Twilight/Sunrise/Eternity. One I actually want.

    The Shining Blade is also very mesmer-y. It's just the purple and overall very magical effects. Maybe the butterflies only happen because they are a mesmer? I don't have one myself. It's when they stow the weapon.

    I'm working on The Shining Blade myself and yeah, that can be considering a Mesmer-y sword, but I love that one too. Gonna use it for my Rev and Holo. Yes.

    It's clearly glint's weapon, check on high res for crystals and drawing effect. It's blue not puple.

    The biggest question that this video raised for me: Why is there a group of Charrs floating on skimmers around a golden waypoint?

  • Batel.9206Batel.9206 Member ✭✭✭

    I don't have an interest in making legendary weapons, but I have to say - that sword looks really cool! The armor, too...now I'm curious how it looks on a male character. Light armor (I assume the last set is light armor) especially looks great. Thanks for the teaser! :D

    also, that beautiful music...

    Top level trailer, if the map shown is the new map, it looks like an archipelago or a coastal map. And VERY NICE ARMORS.
    0:24 holographic ground, asuran technology? Welp very intriguing as a trailer (in a good way) great job done here!

    Very impatient to discover the new map but seems very cool all that water and verticality....
    Impossible to be in charr lands for me, clearly coastal: I'm hesitating between 3 locations:

    1- South-east of rata sum
    2- South-east of mount maelstrom near desert highlands
    3- South-east of Domain of Istan Archipelago

    Not gonna lie, u've been killing it with how many armors we've been getting post pof.

  • Pirindolo.9427Pirindolo.9427 Member ✭✭✭

    I dislike the GS, It looks like a bigger and less detailed version of the shining blade. It looks more like a toy than a wepon to my eyes. But I am no fan of GS as a weapon, so np. Mount is awesome, though.

    I was just thinking we have seen a lot of armor skins these past 12 or so months.

    Seems community feedback works sometimes. And it's not just armors, I'm noticing an increase on new weapon skins earned in-game too. A good sign.

    True, still these dont excuse an otherwise poor season and a meh schedule.

    The male sylvari showing off the new greatsword seems to be wearing a "plain" version of the light Mist Shard armor, so presumably there are two different versions - one with the glowy shards, and one without. (I hope I'm not just seeing that wrong.)

    It seems like most of the new armor sets in LS4 have come with an upgraded version, so I wouldn't be surprised if glowing version was an upgraded version.

    I suppose that's what happened to the Bifrost; I don't exactly see that with the new GS. Tbh, I think I like this new GS a tiny bit more than the other ones :O

    Honestly it looks more like we are going east of Elon riverland. There is some greenish area with some coast-like environment, not too far away from branded mountains.

    At some point in the past they also updated the map design to include dzalana areas, it might be a good idea to finally go there as a transition episode for season 5.

    And who knows, looking at the proximity to PoF guild hall, it might even be possible to just go through a portal to reach the new map.

    ..

    I have no issue getting their youtube channel (Guild Wars 2) to show (via either Google as inside Youtube search) and I'm from The Netherlands as well. The latest visible video is a Let's Play from 6 days ago. The current video is indeed in "hidden" status but visible fromout the post of Stephane. So it may be something on your end with some settings or the likes.

  • Is that a new Sylvari hair style at the 30 second mark?

    That greatsword looks like they just did a marginal remodel of The Shining Blade and Eclipse from the design a weapon contest winner then added a few extra effects. Not what I was expecting for the gen 2 legendary that took about 3 1/2 years to get to since HoT was released. Then again it doesn't have to appeal to me. I imagine many will love it.

    I'm excited for the Dragon mount, and of course the new episode it's self. I'm also very interested in what the map may be.
