Out of ignorance, though, when did we learn that Bubbles turns water into tentacles ala Morpha from LoZ:OoT?

It's in The Movement of the World, published in 2007,

Quote

In the deepest waters of the sea, another dragon breathed, twisting the waters themselves into tentacled horrors that rose from every lake and river of the land.

And it was referenced (at least, I think that's what they were referring to) in some of the posters from The Lost Shores update.

In Topic: Homosexuality in Tyria

nothing in-game suggests that tyria's population feels strongly driven to reproduce, not even amongst the charr who are all about bolstering their military capacity. again, this doesn't even begin to apply to the sylvari because, from a reproductive standpoint, they're all (as far as we've been shown) neuter, while the norn are shown to engaged in their hedonism regardless of what's going on in the world around them - the battle against the elder dragons hasn't stopped them from throwing moots and getting outrageously drunk, and I really doubt it would stop them from having sex with whomsoever they please either.

at the risk of not really contributing much to the conversation, I'd argue that the sylvari are actually pansexual - "Sexually attracted or open to all people regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation." - as opposed to hetero/homo/bisexual, as I can't recall ever having seen sylvari actually discussing gender preference - because gender doesn't matter to them!

and it's a logical progression, considering they're unable to reproduce between themselves and sex, for them, is just for fun. they're not sexually super special snowflakes for the sake of it, or because anet wants to be inclusive and politically correct - it just makes sense given their circumstances.

In Topic: Water Sentry: Optimized Support build for Dungeons/Fractals

I run a very similar build, but I take 20 in air because I personally prefer the glyph support - being able to pull out water elementals for the frost field and thus extra chills can be very handy in kiting unstoppable champions, or kiting, period, and the bonus heals from the bigger one doesn't hurt either.

shame on you guys for having unintended fun.  you should be glad that they fixed this so you can go back to or discover all the other super fun builds out there using our other awesome traits....
that's funny, tell another!

really though, the common sentiment (with which I agree) seems to be that many of our grandmaster traits leave much to be desired, and this nerf really drives the damn point home
