Indeed, I'm hoping the Fiery Dragon Sword features dynamic 'wind-blown' flames similar to the Elementalist Fiery Great Sword.

EDIT: here is a reference video to the aforementioned effect:

They look terrible. Like gw2 took a step back. Although these previews could be on a mid-range computer. Oh well I'm happy that I'll still have these skins available to me.

Models without any real post processing/animations applied (which looks like the case here) generally do look bad. Also, these previews are definitely not 'high' versions, just look at the textures compared to weapons we've seen in game :)

Also, there's a massive amount of variance between models. Unless some of them are very small of course.

If you want to check if your computer will run GW2, check here.

If you find out you can't and need to think about upgrading or building another, check here.

I can't wait to use the Living Shortbow on my Ranger! Will probably be the closest thing to the old Urgoz Longbow.

These are all 2d models of the ingame weapons ripped from the DAT file, they will look different ingame when rendered with animations and such. So chill out and check them out ingame come launch, I'm sure they will look a lot better.

These aren't the final product in which you will see in the game.  I'm guessing these were extracted from the .dat file, which if you've ever looked into, everything in there looks basic and flat.  That's because the game client does tons of post-processing to the textures.  Whats located in the .dat are just the basic models.

Yes, these models are just to give you an idea of the general form/contour of how the weapon might appear in game.
Bump-maps, Shiny and Transparency Channels, and aura/glow effect will all increase the overall aesthetic.

Thanks for the preview! I can't wait to see them in 16 days. I'm also excited to see the Chimeric Prism.

I honestly don't think I will ever use another axe aside from the Stygian Reaver.

One of my personal favorite skins in GW1, and most likely GW2.

Sorry for the Confusion...These weapons are independent images. I was really trying to fit as much weapon in for a fixed horizontal image size. I'd imagine the daggers will be similar to the GW1 Versions (pictured to the right)

I didn't bother posting the preview of the Prism due to the lack of Particle/Glow Effects. It basically looks like a bunch of shards in a conical shape.

Ha! Well yes the reason I think I'll like the prism is because it will be shiny and glowy, so I guess that makes sense. :)

You are also missing the 'Chimeric Prism' focus.

Nice list anyhow, but I don't really like them a lot. But of course in-game they will look better with shaders and effects applied to them.

Actually, I was making reference to this photo:

And these are supposed to be daggers?  I hope and wish it was just bugged, and they are the size as in the original GW.

I think that flame beacon torch should have a sword to it, that shape looks perfect for a cool sword hilt.

Looks alright. Not worth the grind for me because I never really liked it. But these weapons are for pure nostalgia. If you didn't really play guild wars 1 you won't get as giddy about most of these weapons as vets would.

I really like that grip on the felblade though.

I found a flame texture that looks like an unmistakable match for the Fiery Dragon Sword
