So, my previous thread got deleted, and I haven't (yet) been informed why. (Shoutout to you, admins!) Here are the contents of the disputable and controversial upcoming update.

I am NOT supporting or stating that any of the following info is true, and none of it should be taken as a truth 'till proven by actual update release notes by ANet!!!

To support this, I'm also providing a link to german Gw2 website (on which it wasn't removed, unlike some.. *cough*).

Changes to Crafting
  • Armorsmith, Tailor, and Leatherworking can now be leveled to a rating of 500.
  • Ascended material refinement recipes are unlocked at a rating of 450 to craft.
  • Ascended insignia recipes are available for purchase at all master craftsmen and require a rating of 500 to craft.
  • Ascended armor recipes are available for purchase at all master craftsmen and laurel vendors and require a rating of 500 to craft.
  • Crafting discoveries for exotic armor have been reset to allow for rediscovery that gives bonus experience and facilitates leveling to a rating of 500.
  • The collection in the bank that holds ascended crafting materials has been expanded to hold new materials.
Changes to Legendary Weapons
  • Journals for precursor weapons can now drop anywhere precursor weapons can currently be found. These journals serve as recipes to craft precursor weapons.
  • Players will now receive a unique book upon completing a legendary weapon telling the personal story of its creation.
  • Players who have already crafted a legendary weapon will receive a book telling the story of its completion in the mail. Players who have sold their legendary weapons will still receive a book.
  • Precursor weapon drop rates have been slightly increased.
Structured Player vs. Player
  • Shards of Legend now drop from Rank Reward Chests, Match Win Reward Chests and Daily PvP Reward Chests.
  • Shard collectors have been added to the Heart of the Mist near the glory vendors. These vendors accept Shards of Legend for legendary PvP weapons and other rare items.
  • The glory awarded for completion of a match has been slightly increased to better reflect the time each match takes to complete.
  • The price of Rank Reward Chests has been slightly decreased.
New Items and Promotions
  • The Upgrade Extractor is now available in the Consumable category for 70 gems each, 5 for 300 gems, or 25 for 1400 gems. Upgrade Extractors will separate one upgrade component from one item. The item will be bound to that character after extraction.
  • The Ascalonian-Leader Finisher is now available in the Upgrades category for 600 gems. This finisher creates a ghostly captain who commands a phantom army to trample your opponents in PvP and WvW.
  • The Cute-Quaggan Finisher is now available in the Upgrades category for 700 gems. This finisher creates a pink quaggan who delivers fatal cuteness from atop a geyser of water to your opponents in PvP and WvW.
  • The Skritt-Scavenger Finisher is now available in the Upgrades category for 500 gems. This finisher creates a skritt thief who rifles through your opponent’s pockets in PvP and WvW."
Quickly translated from a non-english site, so please excuse any translation and grammar mistakes.

Hopefully we get some knowledge. The last thread didn't seem to be wrong in any way and got removed mid conversation.

The thing is, that the only things in these notes are things that were data-mined just a day or so before these notes magically turned up.

It is also quite clearly missing the major part of the update, namely information about the new Fractals.

I would say this is simply someone that have been bored and taken the data-mined information and made their own patch-notes, without any kind of information from ArenaNet themselves. Which is most likely also why threads like these gets removed, they are simply A) Based on false information or B) Based on leaks and I doubt guru would want to spread such leaks.

If the pvp information is true I'll be spending more time in heart of the mists for sure! Been wanting pvp to gain some proper rewards. With any luck we might be able to get high rank armor/weapons. With that said, I really, really want this information to be true xP

It doesn't matter if what it says is true or not. Saying that it was "leaked" implies that there's an NDA breach involved and guru doesn't allow that for what should be obvious reasons.

It's more a concern of the validity of this information. Even if any of this is true, its source is so far removed that it's going to be difficult to have any sort of meaningful conversation on it. So far we've been deleting these threads and PMing users individually, but it looks like it's getting posted often enough to warrant a public closing message. I hope all of you understand where I'm coming from here.
