I dunno about GW2 lore as a whole but so far I enjoy the new living story. It also let us have that amazing, though easy fight with Zhaitan.

The dialogue between members of Destiny's Child/Edge 2.0 is a little too sappy for my taste and is something I hope subsides over time, but overall it is remarkable how much better the second season of the Living Story is compared to season one and the Personal Story. The Aerin fight was a lot of fun, and the Modrem Thrasher fight was quite a breath of fresh air pushing you to run heal/control skills over raw DPS.

Considering season one started with fixing signposts and ended with the Scarlet fight ... the starting point of season two bodes very well for this game's future.

Getting back to the OP, the problem with the Sylvari is similar because it also represents a dramatic change of flavor. In EOTN, the advent of the Sylvari was totally incidental, with Ronan finding the seeds and bringing one to Arbor Bay. The Pale Tree was nothing but an oddly shaped sapling, so now making it the heart of the cosmos, when we know perfectly well that everything existed before the seed was even planted, makes utterly no sense whatsoever. This is an even bigger issue than the ley lines, because it is directly contradictory with the prior data that we had.
Actually, looking back over this post from this morning, I just thought of a way that the writers could potentially reconcile the old lore and the new.

We know that the Pale Tree is not unique, as Ronan found multiple seeds in the cave, and Malyck is supposedly from a different tree. Various seeds mean that probably at least one tree existed before. So how about this: the parent tree of our current Pale Tree existed during the previous time that the dragons were awake, and in fact they were awake because of its existence.

Let's put the new lore of the Pale Tree and the ley lines into a package and say that the Pale Tree has the capacity to disturb or alter the flow of magic in the ley lines, and that the dragons have awoken now because the new Pale Tree disrupted the ley lines.

The Wyld Hunt Valiants fight the memory of a dragon before they awaken from the Dream, and are then told that their mission in life is to destroy the dragons. What if that is what the existence of these trees is all about: They are forces created by nature itself to counter the corruptive power of the dragons. They are able to manipulate the flow of magic in the ley lines and channel it into creating Sylvari, and thus the Sylvari cannot be corrupted because they are created with the same magic that the dragons need for sustenance.

Therefore the Pale Tree is not suddenly at the heart of the cosmos, but it is at the heart of this natural conflict with the dragons using the ley lines, and that is what we witness in Omadd's machine: The one large orb in conflict with the six smaller ones.

Obviously this still needs a little development, but it is just my idea for reconciling the lore.

I love that there's more mystery and suspense this time around. We seem to be literally delving into Tyria again. :)

I made some Engineers, based on the Doctor, from Doctor Who.
Simple clothing design, and pretty much the best I could do with the current hair styles and clothing options. Missing the Tie and Bow tie, unfortunately. :/
Since Engi's can't use Torches, the nearest thing to a Sonic Screwdriver, are those fire work sparklers from the merchant at Lions Arch, although they also seem to resemble wands lol.

Tried to get armor/dyes to match the new weapons.  Couldn't find anything that worked so I went for a contrast instead with the Knave of Hearts theme.

Since nobody has done this(I think), with the new weapons I just thought to myself: Alice in Wonderland and Queen of Hearts right away and had to do a Alice Madness Returns cosplay. I'll try get a better picture later. Sorry for the awful editing, I got a bit excited :P

#2326535 Post a Picture of Your Warrior.

Posted boxterduke on 05 June 2014 - 09:09 PM

Here are both of my Warriors. Charr is my main one, he was created launch day. The human Warrior was created about a month ago and been playing her a lot. It feels a lot faster on her than the Charr. Charrs feel a bit sluggish and slow when even running. I know its a perception thing but I feel really fast on the human. Not going to make her my main Warrior though since I love the Charr.
