Guild Wars 2: Legendary Armory
Delyndia

Hey guys Delyndia here.

Guild Wars 2 is going to be adding a new thing for legendary items.

 In the next update that will affect template features, you will be able to use the same legendary items on all of your characters at the same time.

 Which means there will be no need for having to put them in your bank or shared inventory.

Instead when you bind a legendary item to your account it will be put in something called the “Legendary Armory”.

This is something a lot of GW2 players have been wanting for a while and it’s good to see the Guild Wars 2 team is working on it and that it may be out soon.

Um, well that’s all I have to say so ya stay safe and just stay home and play Guild Wars 2.

Guild Wars 2 special announcement: Breakdown.
Delyndia

Hey guys Delyndia here, the Guild Wars 2 special announcement live stream was a few days ago and here is what I gathered.

So first there is a free outfit in the gemstore right now so make sure to get that, here is what it looks like.

I wish you could dye the shirt but I still think it looks cool.

The Living World season 5 release date was announced to be September 17, 2019. If you want to watch the official trailer click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSD2aXhfCIE

Competitive game modes will be getting world remodeling and PvP will be getting Swiss-style tournament support, tournament support, and mini-seasons in the future.

Character build and gear templates are going to be added to the game so you can change builds and equipment loadouts easily. 

And we got to see a draft picture of a new world boss

I think it looks really cool and I hope the official one looks similar to it.

A new thing is going to be added called Strike Missions where you can get a group up to ten people, you can either make a private group or join a public group to take on challenging bosses.

For those that own Heart of Thorns there should be a glider skin and box waiting in your mail,  here is what the glider looks like and what you get out of the box.

Right now if you don’t own any of the expansions, you can buy Path of Fire and you get Heart of Thorns free. If you already own Path of Fire but did not buy Heart of Thorns, it has been added to your account.

The SkyScale New GW2 flying mount
Delyndia

May 13, 2019

Hey guys Delyndia here and today we are going to be talking about the new dragon mount the Skyscale.

Here are the questions I have.

Will the Griffin still be worth the 250 gold plus all the time it takes to do all of the collections?
Well according to Guild chat episode 83 streamed on May 3rd, No each will have its own purpose.

Does this mean Aurene is coming back?
I don’t know but it would be nice Anet, especially now that I could fly with her.

Will there be dragon races?
Well I have not found any information on it so we will have to wait and see.

Will we have to do a lot of collections?  Pay a lot of gold? Or will it be like the Roller beetle, and be apart of this Living World episode being released May 14th?
Well I have no answer for this one, we have not been given any information on this yet.

Will you always need to have energy to fly or will you be able to fly in the air as long as you like?
Yes, you can stay in the air as long as you want.

Can you fly as high as you want?
Although you can stay in the air as long as you want, you can’t fly as high as you want.

Why can’t you fly as high as you want?
Well there is thing called a flight cap, you can go to a certain height depending on how high you already are.

Is there a way to get higher up?
Yes, once you get your masteries leveled up you can grip on mountains and use your jump key (Whatever you have it set to) to  launch of the cliff and try to get to some point that you can land and this will rest your flight cap.

Ok but what’s the catch with this, it can’t be that easy?
When your gripping on the mountain your energy does not refill.

What about using the Bond of Vigor ability?
You can use the Bond of Vigor ability, and it will fill up your energy and some of your flight cap temporarily. But when your flight cap goes back down, you will return back to your original flight cap and Bond of Vigor will not recharge if you are gripping on a cliff.

Okay so those are the questions I had, and the answers I found. I can’t wait for the new Living World episode and the Skyscale coming out tomorrow May 14th, to get the Skyscale and find the answers to my unanswered questions.

Well that’s it guys have a great day and bye.

Warclaw Delay and Layoffs?
Delyndia

February 27, 2019

Today ArenaNet put out a post on their official Guild Wars 2 forums with information on the delay of the update for the Warclaw and recent layoffs. You can click here to read there post or you can stay here and read my short version.

So first the Warclaw.

Basically the Warclaw was delayed because of the layoffs they made and they will be re-evaluateing their schedules “to make sure that our releases are realistic and allow us the time to make sure they hit our internal quality bar.”

SO… now to the layoffs, this will be a lot off quoting.

On ArenaNet’s post they said “The studio has recently been affected by layoffs, which is going to take some time to process. There’s no easy way for any team to adjust to that. We’ve had to say goodbye to friends and colleagues that we’ve worked alongside for years. We’re welcoming back some familiar faces to the Guild Wars 2 team that had been working on unannounced projects. After all is said and done, it’s going to take some time for us to adjust to our staffing changes.”

Okay yeah, ArenaNet has let go of some of their employees and it is taking effect on there release of the Warclaw.

OKAY…yes I was really looking forward to the Warclaw, and i’m really bummed out about the update for it being delayed.

So why are they laying off their employees, this is what I found.  According to Kotaku, article on February 21, 2019, the CEO of NCSoft West which owns ArenaNet stated:

“Our live game business revenue is declining as our franchises age, delays in development on PC and mobile have created further drains against our revenue projects, while our operating costs in the west have increased”, and “ Where we are is not sustainable, and is not going to set us up for future success”.

Now this what I found from PCGAMER after they contacted ArenaNet on February 21, 2019.

In response to our inquiry, ArenaNet issued the following statement:

“We can confirm that due to the cancellation of unannounced projects, ArenaNet will make staff reductions. This is part of a larger organizational restructuring within NCSoft in the west, but the Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 game services will not be affected, nor is any upcoming game content canceled.”

The studio declined to comment on the number of employees affected by the cuts.”

So basically what I get out of this, NCSoft is consolidating for the future of the company and ArenaNet is stating our game will continue on.

So what does this mean for our beloved game?

Well…. ”The Guild Wars 2 team is still committed to bringing content and feature updates to the game. The next episodes of Living World are already in development, Swiss tournament support is coming to PvP, we’re looking at more WvW events coming soon, and the return of the Super Adventure Festival is imminent. Our long-term plans for the game like World Restructuring and large-scale improvements to quality of life are still in the works.”

So WvW is going to get their oversized cat mount next week, delayed but it’s still coming…thankfully. So what about Living world, I mean will  Aurene magicly come back from the dead OR did AreuaNet seriously just kill off my dragon!

Okay okay fine…I guess i’ll stop complaining about it.

Anyway, back to Living world, this is what i found out.

From there post on their official Guild Wars 2 forum on February 22, 2019:

“We know you have a lot of questions about the future of Guild Wars 2. We want to share with you what to expect moving forward for the game. First and foremost, we are still fully committed to all of our players and ongoing support of the game. We will be moving directly from Living World Season 4 into Season 5 as promised, and we plan to continue a regular cadence of updates and releases.”

Well that about all for now on this subject. I got to vent about the Warclaw being delayed and ArenaNet killing off my dragon and not even giving out a free Aurene plush mini for completing the chapter. I mean, come on, something would have been nice.  But, they are saying things will get better and I sure hope so this game has become a good part of my life and I have played it for years.

Okay, so that’s all for now. Bye
