Ok no info about ascended armors. They still have the benefit of doubt. I'm watching you Anet, I'm seriously watching you.

New species... the Karka.

Hooray! No more stupid zombie fest!  'Now we get to fight for real.'
New map and new enemy.  I'm excited!

I am thinking more and more that Bubbles is involved. It does look like its kind of minions.

Black lion chests are once again exploading with this update. Probably due to this part
[spoiler]"New Lost Shores Items from the Black Lion Trading Company

The Gem Store will be well stocked in November! Unique minis and brand-new weapon skins made just for the Lost Shores weekend event are just some of what the Black Lion Trading Company has in store."[/spoiler]

40k chests gone from the 7/8 copper tier combined in less then 30 min lol.

Looks like they took the Black Lion Chests debacle very seriously, it seems as though these new weapon skins will be available as "direct buy" from the gem store itself. Well played Arenanet, well played.

Yes, it's important to know that the unique miniatures and skins were not stated to be from the chests, but from the gem store.  Whether the chests will be involved is anyone's guess.

I'm waiting to hear about the ascended items.  The image on the page looks to be a back item, which makes me wonder if it'll be only a few items at ascended level and it's a more strategic choice (like bane effects or something like that).  Maybe we'll get a "bane:Karka" effect that lets us hurt them.  Infusions were said to be from dungeons, so perhaps you'll need to use the existing dungeons' tokens to get them.

Interested to see how this plays out.

I guess it's a foregone conclusion for what happens during the event. "Defend LA" apparently will not happen as the next day we have to "Retake LA."  Apparently we will then succeed and push through to Southsun Cove the day after.  Good job guyz on our success!! :P

"... including new weapon sets, a back-slot item, new Ascended loot, and much more!"

New weapon sets? As in, new weapons that are not currently existing in game? :o !

Most likely just meaning new skins. "Random name here" weapon set. For example: Jade daggers, Jade axe, Jade pistol etc.

If the new armor is "more powerfull" as in an extra effect, then i could actually see some fun in it. Overall i'm pumped for the patch, but i'm watching your armor A-net -.o!

I for one am very pleased that they are pumping out this much content so soon after launch.  Very few MMOs these days have had updates of such quantity.
