New patch is out. Normally this is when I'd be the most excited and joyous about the game but this one really didn't do it for me.
Maybe I was too distracted by how much fun the new strike mission is.
After having a day or so to ruminate on the new story patch I've come to these conclusions:
This next point is the crux of why I thought this story step was kinda lame.
4. Jormag is an awful villain so far. This whole whispers thing is a cool idea but every thing it says makes it look weaker and less like I want to join it.
What its trying to temp us with is pathetic.
It has nothing to offer the commander and it has nothing to offer the rest of tyria.
Yes. I want to help you and aurean create a peaceful age of tyria.
Let me just send in my death cult to kill all your friends first, that should let you know I really want to help you.
The fact that Rytlock and Crecia fall to this just makes it insulting.
Jormag isnt threatening like kralkatoric was and it's not playing its cards right to be make us not want to fight it like joko did. (Briefly)
Jormag still holds one card In this, "the threats to come" thing so still salvageable but right now Jormag is a complete joke.
