First let me state that I am not crying or whining about the game. I love this game. I love anything Guild Wars. So before you make a smart comment about something I say, just remember that it will be stupid because I'm not whining.

I understand that there are different teams that work on different things but where is my new content? I thought I was going to be getting quite a bit of content seeing as how the world is still "growing" and evolving. SAB was cool and all but what about Flame and Frost? The Braham and Rox took me maybe 30 minutes to complete.


Second point. I would enjoy a certain, more exclusive way to get a legendary...more so a precursor. What is everyone's thoughts on that?

Third. What is to come of this new ascended gear. When will I get more than accessories?


Some of these are just questions I want some answers for.

It takes time to make new content. You need to write it, code it, make art for it, sync it, balance it and so on. Those 30 minutes play you got most likely took several weeks all in all to actually make.

Ascended gear is also available in rings and amulets.  Not just accessories.

I don't think may people cares much about the Living Story. I love how they release new awesome content such as those connected to the big holidays, and the SAB. But that's enough for me to make me feel like the world is evolving.

They're likely working on a better way to acquire precursors. I'm also fairly sure that they've said that they're probably going to release new Legendarys.

I hope they stick with the idea that Ascended is only available as Trinkets. If you want more exclusive armor, it should just be great looking Exotics since it's more up to the GW2-Philosophy.

One small content patch each month does seem meagre but I'm fairly sure theyre working on a lot of greater stuff as well, including the first expansion. There has been talk about a new way of getting precursors (Scavenger Hunt) but afaik thats not being actively worked on. Also talk about making achievements more rewarding, possibly with more titles and such. I'd love to see some new armor sets before then, don't really need them to be ascended, just look cool :) I wouldn't be surprised if they're putting the main development force behind the first expansion though.

If we are to believe ANet, they have said they are not currently working on, and have no plans for, an expansion. They are dedicated to making the Living Story thing work.

Ah that's newer info than I had, need to check up on these things more often :P Didn't they also say that the Living World team was quite small and had limited resources which is why they had to re-use assets and could only make smaller bits? If that's the case I do wonder what else they're working on...

Here is one article about it.

No one is quite sure what is happening. Hopefully, they are just putting out a little content here and there to keep us interested until a big patch comes out. The stuff they say they are working on seems pretty in depth. such as separating PvE, PvP and WvW skills, custom arenas, etc. Hopefully, we will see some progress soon!

Believe Anet. Yes, that always ends well.

They are probably already working on expansion packs. Why fix these dungeons when they can sell new ones with *~*better loot*~*!!!

I heard a rumour that the skill separation may be this month. I personally can't see it happening so soon but it did get me interested.

Aye, I believe there was a post somewhere that confirmed that they will at least start splitting skills with this update. I'll see if I can find it.

If that happens in a seriously meaningful way, it may be a reason to come back and play. The last few nights I've loaded it up. Looked at my characters and then quit. I just can't get into it anymore.

We’re starting to split PvE/WvW in the upcoming patch.

But we want them to be things that keep consistency across the game types as much as possible.

I'd love to see a better way to get a precursor whether it's a scavenger hunt or just an uber-dungeon type of thing I'm just tired of hoping and being disappointed when I open a dragon chest and see all greens, I don't really want to see ascended armor or weapons since atm you can get 60AR just by collecting shards from fotm 20+ and tokens for your backpiece but I agree with Phadde about the awesome looking exotics (purple glowy vision of the mists style armor for mesmers plz XD)

The current set of Ascended gear is easy, because they don't have to design the skins (except the back piece).  If they do release Ascended armor and weapons, players will probably set the bar pretty high for what they expect w.r.t. appearance.

I'm really hoping for a precursor scavenger hunt.  I loved the hunt for the Mad King book back piece.  The Lost Shores one was entertaining too, when it wasn't bugged.  I have the luxury to wait, as I am still gathering tons of mats.  Only just recently got my clovers.
