Am I the only one disappointed in the new pact Avenger skin? It looks like it hopped out of an N64 cartridge. Why did Anet change it?

All of the end game skins suck....not to mention they're all "rare" quality.

The last boss battle sucks, you're rewarded with ,non-max weapons, and they look crappy....yeah, thanks but no thanks.

Agree, reason because i just left the story at all. I don't need rare junk for sure.

Can someone post an imgur of old and new skin to answer the OP?

The original I admit looks 2d and could have used some beefing up in textures but man this new one makes me want to scrap mine for ectos lol.

I'm not a fan of the huge anime swords, but that was what the skin had going for it. It was a big ugly chainsaw sword, now it's a small ugly chainsaw sword, what's the point of that? It has a crappy texture now too.

I'm a huge fan of giant anime styled greatswords. The pact Avenger is the only one that is dark and curved which is what I've wanted. I have access to the felblade but that looks alright at best. For now I'm rocking a ceremonial which is my second max greatsword.

I agree, they both look unlike the GW2 universe but the second one looks way more badass.

well, it's pact gear, and it features parts of every race (more or less), just like the stuff in orr does.
ofc, it looks kind of messy that way, but yeah ^^

Lookslike it came out of a Final Fantasy game. Both versions do.

The graphic of the new verision is not as good but the form of it looks better.

Edit: The new look more like a sword.

They're pretty much both not something I'd want to be looking at on a character.

The new skin looks soft. Almost cuddly. I wonder if it squeaks when you hit someone with it.

The old skin has a real cruddy low-resolution texture. My guess is that either a non-finalised model got through accidentally, which they have now replaced with the final one, or they ran out of time to finish all models before release and are now going through doing them up.

The new one just looks too clean - they could make it look more sword like with a bit of grunge on it.

It was an ugly & useless rare thing before - and it still is. ^_^
I'm more the Ebonblade or Vanguard GS type of person ...

My victory token is still gathering dust in my bank. Can you salvage those for ectos?

yeah there are a few differences but it's not as awful as you are making it seem tbh.  a bad skin will always be a bad skin, despite these small changes.

I wish, cause I still have mine as well.

Can't salvage for ectos, but you can sell them on the TP. I used mine to get the staff which I immediately sold for an easy 2g. :)

It is still sickeningly anime-styled and simply gaudy.

I really liked that sword too... Was wondering what happened to it. I play with max graphic settings and the sword suddenly looked like it came out of a very (VERY) old Playstation game. The contrast with the rest of my character (armor details) is just ridiculous lol...

Oh well. Switched to Mystic Claymore skin this morning. Still going to keep the pact GS just in case they switch it back to what it was.

Yeah, the overall shape looks good, but the rendering is just too awful. In game, it looks like it's made of cheap plastic.

Please understand that the versions I used are both low quality. The older version actually has a much better texture than the newer one.

I'd rather the artist had created a new sword than updated an existing skin that nobody had an issue with. :(

Yeah, they're different, but I think most of the difference is from the second screenshot being taken on lower graphics.

(Or they uploaded only low-quality textures by mistake and there should also be a HQ version)
