I was looking for interviews or other sources but couldn't find anything other than the living story one (which I think is lame and I don't care about the living story). I think we should know if there'll be anyhing big by now, so maybe this patch will be a PvP/WvW focused one?

Personally I really hope for an ingame LFG tool, I don't understand why it takes them so long to implement such a system.

New WvW system with progression and the first real part of Flame and Frost story is the only information we have.

Probably nothing interesting or worth mentioning. Or...

Probably the BEST patch EVER!!! Yeah! With laser beams, and lighting, and thirty-seven different flavors of Legendary Weapons. Top-it off with a scoop of GvG in first ever 10vs10 match up! And Lodestones raining from the sky! And lots of Ectoplasm!

That, or just a boring WvW update. Hope they update the personal story and home instance soon though...

Deslid, I wouldn't hold my breath for updates to those 2 areas.  Personal story should get updated/expanded upon when the expansion hits (most likely sometime after August) and maybe at that time your personal instance will get an upgrade, but I doubt it.

Has anyone came across some infos about possible updates to the "lesser" legendaries ?

I only read Guru's forums so maybe one of you saw something about that elsewhere on the interweb.

They updated a few of the Legendaries with last patch.

Because it's technically incredibly challenging (and costs a lot of resources) to implement this properly? Besides there are other considerations, such as how it could completely ruin the community like it did with WoW.

Other than the WvW and Living Story updates there's not much info at the moment. People have been telling Anet that they should stop overhyping patches because they ended up being disappointed. Anet has responded that they've taken note so perhaps that's what they're trying now.

i'm sure arenanet can call CERN to send them some scientists to work on this daunting task.What does GW2 have to do with WoW?Most people use LFG.com anyway,how hard can it be to integrate a similar function in-game?

Sorry I thought we were talking about a WoW-like dungeon finder. That requires a queueing system, possibly automated matching (at least for fractals with agony resist and possibly for people on your blocked list), new dialogs, options to kick and find a new person whilst in dungeon using the queue, instant zoning into the dungeons etc. Those sort of systems take a lot of time to implement and especially test because it's asynchronous and anything can go wrong with it.

So you're talking about a simple interface for people that are looking for a dungeon, doesn't the Looking For Group tab which is already in game fit your needs? That shows you everyone looking for a dungeon in the area so you can quickly invite them. It even shows a little magnifying glass over their heads. That's why I thought we were talking about a dungeon finder as a simple function is already in game and people usually refer to the dungeon finder as "lfg".
