    Dude! May 14th? HYPE! =) I hope the new map is in the Mists!

  • Holy..... And it shall begin!

  • Tom.9516Tom.9516 Member ✭✭

    Yeah im all for the hype but im not too sure about that release date. I think they must have released this by accident.
    Or I'm wrong and we get the trailer today and the epi in 5 days

  • But you gotta admit it does coincide with the end of the 4 week prep pack and monday the 13th being the last day for the current bonus event.

    I'm looking forward to this episode. Maybe the 5 remaining gods return to help out in the end? Maybe Aurene can be saved by Balthazar's flame? So many twists and turns so far...

    My biggest concern is we are suddenly going to find a way to win in prob half an episode before the final climatic battle. That on the outset seems like we are going to cram things in and not do justice to the story and exploring any plot points.

    I guess we will know this by time next week

    I've been thinking about that, and isn't it odd that they've not given us the name of the map yet?

    The title of the chapter, though... "War Eternal". Were else but the mists would we fight an eternal war? Where else could we find some sort of Eternal Battleground?

    Anyone else want to see Kralk wipe out Stonemist Castle as his corpse comes crashing down?

    Since that's the popular theory it's very easy to just bait everyone into thinking that :) Personally I'm not so sure anymore. But there are a couple other suspicious things, like not giving us the name of the map.

    IT'S OFFICIAL! Sooner than I was expecting it but hoorah!

    If you join a debate and provide little to no proof when the other side provides lots of evidence, you can't then declare yourself the winner of that debate. Veterans can make signatures apparently.

    Agreed. It very slightly recollected moonlight sonata for me.

    It is rare for the score to miscue and it was spot on here

    Stunning!

    Also - is the implication that they're all still trapped in the cavern after its collapse, and Kralk's departure? Or do they simply have nowhere else to go now that the end is nigh?

    My guess is we’ll get an overland map with rifts and the story may take place by going through the rifts into the Mists. They’ve been make some emphasis on the rifts as of late which leads me to believe it’d go in that direction.

    Wow, that was quite a somber or melanchonic trailer; the mood, dialogues, music and all. Given the situation and past event, not too surprisng but imho an interesting change of pace (before the PC jumps back in action). (...)"but possibly the end of the beginning" >insert mysterious tv series drum sounds<

    i can't wait, waited for this for my whole life
    also now i can't sleep. i check the gw2.com site everyday to see if theres a trailer, and i nearly had a heart attack when i saw a trailer posted omg...

    Anet: give us in-game customizable human NPC companion please
    Please, no more balance changes, or at least reset our gears so we don't have to waste gold changing gears every time.
    Please have option to not receive bloodstone dusts, empyreal fragments, dragonite etc

    The trailer is rather empty. It's pretty much "5 minutes after the end of episode 5", yeah I could have imagined that much by myself.

    New map... NO NAME. hmmm okay. Will just say that it's in the continuation of the end of lws4e5... we already saw everything with the mount/greatsword trailer so it's fine. Sorry i'm not emotionnal more apathtical when watching the trailer, and also I like kralky so.... I'm just excited to discover the end for him.
    Curious of knowing how many troops we lost. Kudo on the feels, reminded me ABITS trailer.

    I think Aurene's death has transformed her into something beyond. Like Glint, she has entered a state beyond life and will play her part from there. She will never be revived and will never really be our Aurene again. She has gone past us.

    I read up in here that it could open up a new legend for Revenant, and I must say "Scion" as an elite specialization for Revenant would be hype like hell! I believe that is how Heralds came to be too?

    While I can see how many people would ask for Aurene as the Scion legend, i can also see why another lot of people would be angry with it.
    I can imagine people being angry with an uninspired or repeat legend.
    I think the revenant has better options that may tie better in the old world, and the new one to come.
    Heck, I’d pay a rib for an underwater legend

    Magnanimous Palawa Joko orchestrated this.
    Only his splendor could have written a good trailer.
    But I heard he executed the one who wrote the lines spoken during the trailer, found them too cheesy.
    So now he’s awakened and locked in the cheese cellar, really, bit of an overreaction, but hey, it’s Joko
