    Thanks for this. Not sure I like where the story is going with that title, but a little teaser - even in CGI - is still very much appreciated!

    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. . .

    Kuunavang looks good indeed

    FYI, a sticky has the vid in already

    I haven't even finished Path of Fire and I'm already hyped. Oh my gosh that was awesome! :grin:

    Amazing looking trailer! I love the art and cinematography of stuff like this, and we finally have the expansion name and logo! Hype!!!

    I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

  • Raknar.4735Raknar.4735 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Kuunavang is looking good!

    You have a heart of gold. Don't let them take it from you.
    Remaster confirmed! Umbasa!

  • The logo for this expansion is a dragon in the waves...guess we'll end up killing Jormag and Primordus during the living world, then face of against the water dragon in the expansion. My guess is this trailer was Aurene talking with Kuunavang, discussing the end of the last dragon.

    hhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyype THERE ARE NO BRAKES ON THE HYPE TRAIN

    That teaser is looking beautifully! Really nice art there <3 I'm so excited!

  • Does this mean after this expantion it's over? That the story is done?

    It implies that, but we've barely touched on Primordus and only just got started with Jormag. I hope the end of the dragons - title aside - is nowhere near in sight. We are still 3 to go and that's a lot of potential for them to avoid rushing through

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I am so kitten hyped!!!

  • Witch of Doom.5739Witch of Doom.5739 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Hyped hyped hyped! What little I could hear of the music sounded lovely. Great to have the title too!

  • 2 things wrong. In Cantha they booted out all the humans so only 1/5 of the playable races will be welcome. The other thing is we still have to deal with Primordus so its not the End of Dragons unless we fight them both at once. Taimi's machine put Primordus and Jormag to sleep but Jormag woke up so we are dealing with him now.

    Saltspray dragons going to wreck gw2 players pretty hard I hope. Like teleporting thieves with big ele aoe ;-)

  • Did someone kill Primordus and not put it in the story? if not then it can't be the end of dragons.

    2021 is all they have said so far. They wont give a date this far away

  • This will be a good xpac indeed. All human characters can play but the rest need to sit it out since all races but humans got booted out.

  • I'm very excited to see the return of Kuunavang to the story! I cant wait to see which direction we go from here. :-)

    nice and all, but when are you going to talk to the wvw community about alliance?

  • EmmaK.9750EmmaK.9750 Member ✭✭

    I was at the livestream when they revealed this trailer and let me say everyone was freaking out, including myself. During the stream, Rubi, one of the devs just said 'We have another suprise trailer for you, I'm not gonna give it an intro because it doesn't need one." and then PLAYED THIS TRAILER WE WERE ALL SO SUPRISED!!!! I was totally freaking out in chat and then that smug lovable Rubi kitten ended the stream right after that!!! I haven't been this hyped in so long OMG!!!!!!!!!

    honestly 2021 is good, id prefer q1 2022 sp they trully get their time with this but that might be unrealistic

    I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR KUUNAVANG FOR SO LONG!!! Will Kuunavang get the sea dragon's powers when they die, or Jormags????

    Was that Aurene's voice? I wasn't sure.

    what a trailer that shows nothing, worst by far. sure looks good, but, nothing is really shown more like a capture to generate hype, opposite effect here.
    When it will be released with water everywhere and a dragon with feeling *bleh made by mixing jormag and kralky it will be too late.
    But yeah, you have points for efforts and graphic. Gonna hate it, cantha, only for nostalgia...

    It's fine, they'll merge eventually. The hype train has many carriages!

    This looks like GW2's version of Mists of Pandaria.

    With nothing else to go on, I believe this is the "End of Dragons" - as we know them. Which means we have found a way to replace the remaining ones for good.

    I rather choose death.

    If you look closer, there are actually two dragons in this logo.

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    In the stream they said "end of 2021."

    I love this teaser. It's the same smooth-blending, transforming figures style that we got in the initial fractals trailer, and since I have given feedback in the past that I thought that was a great presentation, I'm very happy to see it again.

    Edit: Correction -- Rubi said "End of Dragons, 2021," and in my excitement I misheard. Could be earlier in the year, woo!

    Maybe or Maybe not. The story may have something much bigger behind the Elder Dragons as they left us certain mysteries such as who is the "Mother" and what could have happened to this "Mother"?

    Let's hope so buddy, let's hope so ^^

  • Luthan.5236Luthan.5236 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Nice. Cantha confirmed. And Kuunavang. (I wonder if he counts is a elder dragon - or something similar. Scion of some other elder dragon.)
    With "End of Dragons" all the dragons will have been beaten. Last ones in this expansion I guess.

    After that maybe GW3 or more living story and smaller releases. My guess is that it will be the last expansion (all regional parts covered that had been covered in the old GW1) and only small story updates ... and maybe focus on PvP/WvW ... for a while. Until GW3 happens.

    Though ... I wonder about Primordus and some underground maps. (Which might come with living world after that expansion ... or before it. I guess they'll release this one late next year.)

    For expansion level content ... surely this game already has tons of stuff. And more and more professions or elite specs (which people usually request with expansions) make balancing harder. But adding more living world ... I guess for a few years there is still room to do so. (I mean from PoF rlease until End of Dragons it has been a few years.)

    Looking forward to more infos about the content. (New races/professoins/elite specs?)

  • coso.9173coso.9173 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'm glad the dragon stuff will be over finally. it's time to tell another story.
