Named? Do you mean like current "semi-legendaries"? (Whisperblade, Mjolnir, Anomaly etc.) Are these even coming? From what I understood of announcements so far, the weapons will be craftable only..

They weren't confirmed until yesterday (Check the front page). I knew they were coming though! Called it!

Frankly I'm more interested in the potential of named Ascended weapons.

Imagine a full group of 5, if each person has a 10% increase, a party of 5 now gives a 50% increase.

You may want to check your math there. Its a 10% boost to the individual and not a 10% boost to the party. Assuming a player's net damage is also calculated by the increase in damage to allies via fury, might and retaliation, its a 10% boost party wide total. Math could be a little iffy if you're considering boons added to allies as part of the recipients' damage and not part of the caster's.

EDIT: come to think of it, stats only apply to regeneration when it comes to non-self boons in the form of Healing Power. Maybe retaliation, not sure, but might is additional power stacks iirc and fury is a flat 20%

In Topic: Living story putting farmers and event doers at odds

As a JQ commander (I leave the pros for WvW though) when I lead my zerg in these events (All of which end up on overflow. Consequence of being a JQer) I prioritize the event completion. If we're obviously going to win (IE, last wave of Aetherblades left with another 17 minutes to go) I'll sit at an event after its completed and let the main group kill the champions. If I leave most will follow it seems, but hey, we should reward the people who want to farm for helping out and letting events complete

I've yet to run into an event were people were arguing against completing the meta event.

A good place to look to see what has changed, been updated, added, etc is ANets "Game Release" forum over on the official forums. You can go over every single patch notes that has been released - obviously this does involve a lot of reading, but you can see exactly what has changed.


If all your after is a overview of the major updates, what was added and such, a good place to look at is the "Releases" section on the Guild Wars 2 main site. This shows all the major updates and lets you go to the update page, which will show the content for that update that has happened.


So looking at that, there have been the following major releases since March onwards (most of this content is temporary, but some of it is permanent & still available):

- Flame & Frost: The Razing
- Super Adventure Box
- Flame & Frost: Retribution
- The Secret of Southsun
- Last Stand at Southsun
- DragonBash
- Sky Pirates of Tyria
- Bazaar of the Four Winds
- Cutthroat Politics
- Queen's Jubilee (current)

:o There are ascended weapons in game?! You, sir, are referring to the skins or jewels I think. Ascended weapons and armor are not in game, and the jewels make little to no difference.

What has changed ? Well, a lot and in the same time nothing. WvW has been signifiantly improved, sPVP and overall skill balance has been reworked so much better now. There are numerous loot/reward changes and achievements are big part of the PVE. A lot of minigames were added. UI and quality of life improvements.

Thats basicly it, apart from polish and bug-fixes, it is not a new game, there are no new zones, dungeons, gear tier, raids or anything. If you are expecting a whole new game - you are in for a dissapointement, if not,  you will see the same old being of higher quality. ^_^

Beautiful. Thanks guys!
