Quite a few. We call that "DLC." And apparently, you "gamers" suck that right up. It's why they're now advertising future DLC at E3.

"Here's a part of the game that's already finished but we're withholding from you for MORE money LATER!"

It's also why now we have lottery boxes in the gem store. Because DAMN do you all lap that right up. Games stopped becoming games long ago. Now they're cash cows. Business models. They do nothing different from each other anymore. Games stopped being for gamers long ago.

This right  here. However, at times, I do feel like they do extra to keep the game on its feet, and to make it for gamers and not for money.
Take some of these festivals. They didn't have to do much more than decorate the main city and offer out candy from the minigame, but they also added spawn points around the world, dungeon drops, special foods, and will probably include another seperate dungeon. Even if Canach's dungeon seemed sub-par in design, there was a lot of time put into it, and the idea it was built around was rather interesting and unique. I greatly appreciate that ArenaNet has tried this hard to make a great game and to offer it to more players, but sometimes, you're right. The corporate side of them can really shine through, especially with the low Holographic Wing drop rate (and the promised high drop rate for Rare Coffers).

Oh, then look again - the time of the posts, you posted afer I presented the new armors.

Also, still did not see. This doesn't really prove your point, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't even matter at this point.

Wow what a difference some coloring makes, these actually look pretty good here.

yeah, these look really good. The armor's pretty nice, I really enjoy the human's light armor. I hope they make a lot more like this, they're absolutely lovely.

You didn't take your time to read the next page, eh?

Probably because at the time of the post, the 'next page' was not up yet. Hence, I cannot see into the future.

Someone said that there is a New steampunk set. unfortunately i couldnt see it myself, any info ?

Is this a thing
This should be a thing
Oh please dear lord let this be a thing. And a goth punk and 'punk's not dead' set for everyone else would make for a nice addition.

Yeah.  I'm playing a pistol-shield engie myself at the moment.  The dragon thing doesn't really fit the rest of his armor though, and of course there's the fact that I spend 90% of my time in a kit like most engies.....

...and the fact that a pistol held by an Asura is largely invisible anyway....

Yeah.

The jade dragon pistol is also one of my favorites from the set.

Yeah, it's really quite lovely. I'm usually in a kit too, but considering my armor is all blue and blinding yellow because I have the Shield of the Moon and the Ghostly Pistol from Ascalonian catacombs, I feel as though nothing could look better than those 2.

However, I'm stocking up on those skins. I'm gonna want them someday and I'm gonna regret not getting them if I don't get them now.
