I love that first banner. Anyone have the technical magic to turn that into a desktop background?

The resolution is too low; stretching that to a desktop background (1920x1080 resolution, in general) would make it look AMAZING...ly terrible.

I think that will be the background of the profession selection when you are creating your character :)

Yeah the stretch looks sucky. I love it though, it's almost like looking into my mesmer personal instance.

I was looking for some place to ask that question yesterday.

To me, it looks like a population of Grawl.  Maybe they were chased out of the Shiverpeaks by the Dredge and into the Sparkfly Swamp area?  That's why they look aquatic?

Those creatures have obvious reptilian and amphibious looks. They could be a new (minor) race too, as in newly discovered (since now we get tonns of underwater content that was more or less unknown before, even though it probably already existed in some form at the time of GW).

Yep. Notice how the one on the left is holding a Grawl head. These are most certainly bad guys! The Grawl are under the care of the Charr. I am Charr and I will destroy those that threaten my subordinates!

That's MY job, dammit! :)

This is his head, he is protecting his face with forearm.
I think these might be trolls.

You could send a tweet to a certain community mananger, and ask nicely to have it added to the wallpaper section of the main page ...
