And difficult content is all well and good, but we can't fall back into the hellhole of gear-pinging that was ever-present for Urgoz/Kanaxai, etc. in GW. Elitism and disgracing have no place in this game, and reinforcing the metagame makes it more fun for no one.

Elitism and gear-pinging may be related, but they are not equivalent. If the content is challenging enough that you cannot expect to complete it with sub-par gear and builds, your group is inevitably going to be concerned about your gear and build. The alternative is for the content to be so easy anyone of any gear/skill level can complete it, which means that those who really want to complete a serious end-game challenge probably aren't going to get to. Simply being asked to ping your gear to make sure you are prepared for the content is not a "hell-hole" scenario in my personal opinion.

Whether or not those people are elitist about it is the choice of those people. That's a human nature issue, not a game design issue. Hell, there's already elitism in the game when the dungeons are already so forgiving. Someone who wants to be rude to you will always find an excuse to do so.

Personally, I expected December at the very earliest.

For what it's worth, they did announce some time ago that it would definitely release this year. https://twitter.com/...069828054192128

I was thinking late November to duck in ahead of Christmas.

The thing that bothers me is that the lines around my characters are not very sharp, they are dashed

In reference to this in particular, are you talking about aliasing? Example: http://i.stack.imgur.com/pA7uy.png

If not, could you try posting a screenshot to show us what you mean?

The game has a few methods in the Options menu for anti-aliasing:
FXAA, which is low-quality and tends to blur textures a bit. I'd recommend avoiding FXAA entirely for that reason.
SMAA Low/High, which is better quality and the one I'd recommend.
There's also Supersampling (under Render Sampling), which all but the most powerful video cards should avoid.

Would appreciate seeing Definition of Sinister weapons are - was able to find it and for those that don't know your lingo (Condition Damage/Power/Precision) - Found the definition but no information on How to get em - Crafting or Drop?

Sinister gear is crafted (and account-bound on creation), but the materials and schematics to make them are dropped from chests in the Silverwastes. The recipes for the Sinister insignia and inscription (both exotic and ascended rarity) are purchased from the Bandit Crest vendor.

Once you've got that taken care of, Sinister gear is actually relatively cheap. Whereas each piece of Berserker's gear needs 5 Powerful Blood, each Sinister piece requires only a single Charged Ambrite. There's a daily cooldown on those (for the Charged Quartz) but less money.

I think I've only ever carried Signet of Vampirism for self-Might generation in condition builds where I can take Signets of Suffering over Close to Death. Signet of Vampirism wasn't a strong heal to begin with.
