I came in only on the tail end of this, but what I heard sounds really cool. Hopefully someone compiles a highlights list.

Agreed. The info on Orr was definitely my favorite part.

I can definitely see guilds coordinating efforts

Spoiler

I know my guild will be there a couple nights a week.

My favorite part was that the final dungeon is going to be hard to get to, unless you hold the temples that turn off the god statues leading up to it.

That's exactly what I thought.  I was wondering if they would do something like that, those quests were always some of the better ones.

A shortbow...that has a unicorn head on it...that shoots rainbows.

You win, Anet. I can't fight you anymore.

How am I supposed to even defend against that? Use a pot of gold?

rainbow bow that shoots rainbows.

a greatsword of day and a greatsword of night, combined to make the ultimate greatsword.

what else is there I wonder.  Banana scythe? Melon hammer? Fan-shaped daggers?

BTW, the echo and audio does correct at some point.  Got to love live productions.

I didn't get a chance to watch the recording yet, but the summary sounds pretty damn good :D
The idea of not having hearts in Orr, but events is great. I'm curious about the legendary weapons - it's good that they only have cool looks and not better stats! Love that concept. I am a bit split about the rainbow shooting bow though... it sounds nice and I know rainbows and unicorns are hip now but I can imagine they are going to be a bit annoying ingame. Well - let's wait and see :) Maybe they are soooo cool that I want one, too.

Also - Mad King Thorn to return this October?! Yippyyyy! I hope he has great new jokes! And a really nice voice.

I love how creative they are getting with the legendary weapons! I was expecting them to just be really cool skins, but they also have really unique effects...

The molten metal hammer sounds amazing, as do the day/night greatswords! Rainbow unicorn bow? Not really my thing... But I'm sure there will be plenty of people who do like it. Plus, it sounds likely that there is more than one legendary weapon per category --  there are two greatswords after all -- perhaps the other shortbow is something suitably shadowy and skull-covered to suit all tastes ;)
