Synergetics Skyscale soon! [discussion]


Recommended Posts

So this new special sale event had a reveal that the Synergetics Skyscale is soon. We had the Synergetics Skimmer not long ago.

What is your opinion about the design?

For me, it is a lovely design and certainly gives off a legendary mount appearance.

The design is interesting, but Reddit quickly pointed out that it much resembles a creature from League of Legends. Paired with the recent popularity of the related show Arcane, it's easy to see why we might be getting this now. Timely, relevant marketing in the gem store? Color me surprised.

Hmm.

It's not bad. I've passed on all the Synergetics skins so far and will probably pass on this one too, but it's looking like a highlight of that particular theme

What if the Synergetics Siege Turtle is a hover tank?

I really hope that it's not the "synergetics" version of it. What makes these skins appeal to me is that they specifically not look like some kind of "animal / creature" and that skin is still essentially just that.

Plus the "Exo-Suit" line already covers the "cyber animal / creature" theme.

Well... it'd be pretty hard to beat that.
(But if it was a quadrupedal mech, I'd pre-order if I could.)

Whats wrong with LoL?
I has the best music video releases in gaming history.
I first thought that was Divinity's Reach being attacked by Scarlet Briar

Nothing is wrong with LoL (if you enjoy it). The upcoming Skyscale, however, looks like a Hextech Drake, which - with Arcane/LoL being relevant right now - means this is a good time to offer something like this. And I'm surprised, because their marketing usually comes at weird times with weird subjects.

 

Ah i see.
But have you seen the similarities of Scarlet Briar to Jinx...

It's not my thing at all, given the choice between an animal mount and a vehicle I'll take the animal every time. Given the choice between a dragon and pretty much anything else (yes, including a robo-dragon) it's not even a question, I'll choose the dragon before you've even finished saying the other option.

But I know it's something a lot of other people have wanted for a long time, so I'm glad Anet are adding it because it means they're making things players want.

Have to admit, if this is the synergetics skyscale, it will likely be a sad, hard pass because it's not following in line with the synergetics roller beetle and skimmer being tech and not animals.

Personally, I've been hoping for these futuristic skins..  things like...  a synergetics rocket chair (springer), hover tank (siege turtle), jetbike w/portal device (jackel), maybe some kind of jetpack/hoverboard (griffon), a jeep (warclaw) and a helicopter/osprey type machine (skyscale)

In my opinion, it follows through with the Sci-fi theme Synergetics mount follows. Highly advance robotic animals is a rare theme that is not often covered in Sci-fi stuff but it does appear once in a while in Sci-fi series. 

The GW2 theme for being Sci-fi Fantasy makes it fit in more since we know that some crazy Asura probably thought about the idea of making a highly advance robotic animal as their pet or weapon of war.

But it overlaps to much with the "Sci-fi theme" of the Exo-Suit line which makes this one rather redundant. Ceryxobitus is right, something like a hover jet would have been preferable for the "Synergetics" line.

If you really want "robotic animals" themed mount skins then a "Iron Legion" themed line would have been more appropriate as they already heavily incorporate animal themes into their designs.
