Gem store weapon skins is awful. I would much rather have a small random chance to get something than have people spending RL money to buy skins.

If you have an issue spending cash, just use gold to gem and pretend. Personally, i want more skins variety to spend my gold on.

Well I know what I'll be doing this weekend.   There shouldn't be any problem getting the dungeon requirement for the monthly achievement, I'm sure there are doing to be tons of people who will want to try the new endless dungeon.

Which brings up a point, how do you complete a dungeon for the achievement when it is endless?  Ignoring the possible philosophical discussion best left to the College of Synergetics, most likely we'll get a completion in the rest stage but I haven't seen this specified yet.

If you don't then...yeah, don't click on the link:

0:50 seconds into that video...actually took place in ancient Japan...

That was *so* deliberate...

Yet this is the only fair way for a non-sub business model to work...you'd prefer Pay-2-Win? Of course, it'd be nice if there was some (fairly difficult) way of getting the same skins in-game too.

Event starts at 4pm on a Sunday?  So if I can't be on in the middle of the day on a weekend I miss it?

These one time events are garbage unless it's just cinematics ala Mad King.

That was the only "one time event"... so your frustration confuses me.  Based on past "One time event" it will be a cinematic.

yay more dark and ominous areas...

I thought we'd be getting a nice idealistic beach vista according to the posters (where will I get my rythmn-related injuries?), especially after the rain-fest of orr.

anywho, content looks nice :D! really hope the ascended items keep it well populated after the initial event.

It reminds me Faction.

Yeah! I'm more and more expecting Cantha to be the first expansion.

I love the trailer! I think this is going to be a lot of fun.

Sounds like we don't get to go to an island resort like the signs said, though. ;)

I'm using the desktop background, but the shape of the towers is... unfortunate.

From 0:10 to 0:19, it looks like introduction to Tanaris and its Bloodsail pirate encampment.

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.

No they haven't.

The halloween skins are borderline lore/"immersion" breaking. That's why Anet made sure it was hard for most people to get one. In the short term anyone can rent one for the duration of halloween, and It becomes a prestige item for a few people to stand out in the long term. Much like legendaries such as "flip", "predator", "the dreamer", etc. Candy cane weapons from wintersday will get the same treatment. Lost Shores is only different because these weapons will be designed to actually fit Tyria.

Oh, are you on the development team? You sure do seem to know a lot about how the Wintersday items will work!

I suppose when Anet goes adding a gear treadmill 3 months after saying they never would, there's no way to know what will happen. Still, that's the reason Halloween skins were easy to rent / hard to own.
