GW2 – Roadmap to EoD, New Trailer, 9th Birthday Rewards, Rev Teaser? – August 24th 2021 News

all right so we’re here in the middle of a stream and guild wars 2 just posted a video uh called guild wars 2 end of dragon skiffs and fishing i have not seen this yet let’s see what it is you’ve mined harvested and foraged your way through the deadliest terrain now it’s time to kick back and relax in guild wars 2 end of dragons you’ll learn how to gather a new resource fish always pack your fishing pole for quiet contemplative moments wherever you find water keep an eye out for fishing holes to hook more impressive catchers your real adventures begin out on the water with your personal skin you can venture straight to the best fishing halls or just hang out with up to four friends haul your catch back to shore and chefs can use it to prepare delicious new seafood dishes whether you’re looking for peace and quiet or valuable resources furious fish will never be safe from you again ah say hello to 25 fishing poles oh yeah i’ve made that same joke like yeah i hope the fishing pole doesn’t break after 25 uses okay so from fishing you see the like the the the school of fish here so i’m wondering if a you can only fish in those schools of fish you got to find those like a node or b if it’s like world of warcraft where you can fish in any water but the schools of fish give more fish so i’m not sure if you’ve got a basically it’s why did they make the char shake their butt uh i’m not sure if you’ve got to find the node or if the nodes are just better or perhaps like a specific fish like a trout node or something like that uh didn’t they say also in the normal territory fishing i’m not sure all right well so i mean we uh i honestly don’t know that there was any new information this other than confirming that there will be new cooking recipes everybody assumed there would be but i don’t know if they actually came out and said it before this moment uh and they’d already shown like you and friends on the boat they’ve shown people dancing on the boat i know i remember laurenity being excited they talked about you could use your instruments on the boat so they could have like a a water concert and stuff like that uh beyond that not really sure if there’s any new information here however a lot of people are linking to me they did also just release the guild wars 2 live fall and winner 2021 now just glancing at this i can immediately some see uh just glancing at this i can immediately see some things that they have already announced before and some things that they have not uh summer is coming to an end this fall and winter are all about preparing for guild wars 2 end of dragons in april we gave you a look ahead at our live release plans for the summer months here’s a guide to everything coming between now and february 2022 when guild wars 2 end of dragons launches so guild wars 2 end of dragon’s elite specialization beta events um now for anyone who’s been living under a rock we just had the beta event where we got to try out the harbinger the will bringer and the virtuoso and we still don’t know what these six other classes are at this time what they’re called or their uh specialization there’s been a lot of speculation on the weapon skills but a lot of people you know assuming about them but we don’t we don’t know that yet and we don’t know the new class mechanics and by class mechanics i mean like soul bees can merge with their pet fire brand has access to their tomes stuff like that we have no idea what those new class mechanics are so our first elite specialization beta event just wrapped up this weekend and we’re uh reading through all of your feedback and first impressions of the virtuoso harbinger and willbinder the second and third beta events will each feature another set of new elite specializations to try out all gw2 end of dragon’s elite specializations will be playable in the fourth beta event along with the new siege turtle mount now in recent past um there was a visit was on visiting a twitch channel of another streamer and he said on there that there’s currently no plans to make the siege turtle usable in world versus world unless they feel at some point that it would not make it worse so right now one of one of the only things that we know about the turtle is that it won’t be in worldview world when it comes out uh elite specialization beta events september 21st that is just a little less than a month from today at time of recording this preview live stream september 17th now originally uh people you know we were guessing that each tuesday leading up to the beta event we would uh get a video uh for one of the new classes um however the last beta event like right before it on the thursday and the friday the tuesday thursday and friday right before it we were given the information on the uh harbinger and the wheelbender and then a recap of the virtuoso so i don’t know if we’re going to get the new elite specs information in like early september or if it’s going to be like september 16th 17th and 18th like you know right before uh but you know september 17th we’ll know something uh at least specialization beta event 3 october 26th so that means that by october 26th we should know all nine elite specs all of them and then the fourth beta event which is november 30th you get to play all nine elite specs and the siege turtle mount return to living world season four in the iceberg saga return to living world continues today with the first episode of season four daybreak log in every week through september 28th to unlock free living world season 4 episode to catch up on the story and rewards free episodes of iceberg saga will be in the spotlight weekly from october 19th through november 30th oh they’re giving they’re letting us know ahead of the time uh okay so let’s see complete new achievements living world progressive season of the dragons uh so we we’ve already been working on this so season of the dragons for those interested 90 of it is just replay the story that they tell you to replay there’s a few other little things such as uh you know go find tin berry chess and silver waste you know do a meta event um go gather ore or lumber or food whatever like that um but then as a result of this you get this item which can be traded for a precursor and end of dragons you get a 32 slot bag later on and a legendary amulet at the end of it and as these things come out there is a wave of people working on each one so for example if you’ve got one quest like a searing ascent and draconis mons that’s kind of a pain in the backside the when the return to achievement comes out there is a horde of people that are there doing it and you can just go there during the return to achievement and get the stuff done pretty easily so then they just recap the stuff that i just covered for you uh they mentioned the redeeming for the ascended item uh for the precursor we’re just gonna skip that world versus world restructuring last month we confirmed that worldly world restructuring aka alliances is an active development today we’re back to announce that we’re targeting september 24th for the first week-long beta of the system one month from today we have a lot of work to do before then on august 31st we’ll be rolling out some substantial updates to our server infrastructure specifically the servers that make worldview world possible this new server code is going to run silently in the background for a few weeks allowing us to stress test the system with live player data ideally you shouldn’t notice anything different in your worldview world gameplay during this time i’m just imagining like towers disappearing and reappearing uh we know that you’re eager for the gritty details about world restructuring we’ll be posting a dedicated blog on the uh feature well in advance of the first beta event which will include an up-to-date overview of the system and our plans for more betas uh directx 11 and more starting on september 21st we’ll be running a beta test for dx11 upgrade we discussed in july studio update blog post keep an eye out for more information on the upgrade and what changes you can expect to see in the coming weeks festivals festival of the four winds arrives next week i know a lot of people were worried they forgot uh chill out in labyrinthine cliffs or slick your thirst for combat in the crown pavilion from august 31st to september 21st bonus events will continue between our annual holiday festivities worldview world bonus event uh september 21st october 1st uh another worldview world bonus event from october 1st october 8th shadow of the mad king october 5th to november 9th best holiday by the way best holiday uh pvp league season 29 starts october 12th world view world bonus events november 5th and december 10th winners day starting december 14th until january 4th lunar new year starting january 25th we’ve also heard tyria’s stylist buzzing with excitement about some fresh new trends it won’t be long until you’re on your way to kantha and guild wars 2 end of dragon so look for opportunities put your best face forward wait a minute wait wait are they saying like the stylist kit the stylus kit is gonna have some new stuff i wonder if that means it’s something in the game now or if it’s something that is like coming soon in the coming months because this is a road map so there uh i guess they’re probably um my guess from reading that my guess from reading that is that they are taking the new haircuts and stuff that are gonna be in the expansion and they’re releasing them early uh okay cool and uh what’s this someone else is linking me something to take a look at uh ah yes of course of course i think i know what this is so um really quickly it we are at nine years since the game launched so people that made their characters if they never deleted their first tunes and they made characters right when the game launched they’re turning nine now and for any new players out there the way it works is whenever a character has their birthday that character will get a male that has a present and like the one year present is different from the two-year it’s different from the three-year et cetera now the eight-year president was an ascended amulet and it had an enrichment that when you unsheath your weapons a bunch of fireworks went off around you and you saw the guild wars 2 flash above you for a second it was really flashy so people have been wondering what the ninth year gift is going to be and i know what it is but let’s just read this happy birthday guild wars 2 community tyrian heroes began their first guild wars 2 adventures during the pre-launch early access period on august 25 2012 and that means the oldest characters will begin receiving their ninth birthday gift very soon a committed anniversary achievement box will be delivered to the first person to reach the nine year milestone on your account um wait a minute will be delivered to the first character to reach the nine year milestone on your account so not all of them because right like right now if you’ve got eight characters that turn one year old they each get the one year birthday present so this say this makes it sound like you only get it one time uh account rewards feast of delectable birthday cake share a cake that provides a 30 minute boost to all attributes karma gay spirit is gonna match you fine all right so let’s talk about this for a second the feast uh when you put it down it looks similar to an ascended food feast but it’s got the birthday cake on top now it is not as good as ascended food however it is infinite uses in any game mode that you don’t want to you know use up ascended food you could use this and it’s infinite uses at first i was really bummed out about the fact that it’s not as good as ascended food but then i was like you know if that trend continued then everyone would just use birthday cakes till the end of time and we would never use the scented food again so i kind of get it um so yeah it’s not a bad present it’s not a bad one uh choice of delectable birthday dies uh taffy orange cream cherry i mean we can’t see them so i’ll let you guys read that there uh guaranteed wardrobe unlock and two anniversary weapon packs character rewards okay so i’m guessing you get the account rewards once and then you get these per character um the cake stacks with food and oil i’ve actually been told by other people it doesn’t stack with food i don’t think it does uh two birthday boosters five teleport to friend tokens bag of spirit shards birthday card two black lines statuettes there’s like nothing special here i’m surprised by that so that means when your second character if if you have more than one if your second character turns nine years old there’s like nothing to look forward to like like this is like two what four thousand karma stat two statues some spiritual yeah like i get so many spirit shirts every day um let’s keep reading while the account rewards are only delivered once per account each of your characters will receive the character awards on their 9th birthday through the in-game mail system check out the full list of gifts on our official wiki to find out what your characters will receive on their next birthday let me take a look at that so we get the the anniversary backpack the anniversary weapon packs uh the eighth birthday we got the amulet of celebration which was the uh ascended amulet that had the um the fireworks that comes out of it stuff like that um so you don’t even get the dye kit so up until this point you would get a die kit uh for let’s see third fourth fifth sixth seventh and eighth birthday you got a die kit that was character specific but you don’t get one on the ninth you only get it for your first ninth character that’s super weird also i’ve seen it on the website already the committed title that you get is actually a title already in the game they mucked up a little bit there the committed title is a reward for doing challenge mode mursaat overseer which is a raid boss so there’s two different ways of getting the committed title they did already post on the forums i’ve seen this myself that they are going to work on a fix for that i’m guessing they’re going to change one of those two titles uh so right now right this second if you have a 9th year birthday character they get a title that was already achievable in game you get a feast that it is infinite but it doesn’t stack with the best food in the game so you would just use it in everywhere that’s not important content um and you get a die kit for the first tune but you won’t get one on any of your other tunes so to each their own the cake thing is kind of cool but i think they kind of dropped the ball on this one the title messed up some people are saying there’s some issues with the cake with the food buff uh the dye thing is a one time only i think i think they they kind of dropped the ball on this one but let’s continue reading nine years of guild wars 2 in numbers guild wars 2 is has a legendary history and has a bright future thanks to our global community of players who have created over 16 million accounts to celebrate we’ve put together an infographic with some of our favorite facts about your adventures so far uh see nine years in number 60 million accounts uh you’ve adventured together for over 190 000 hours which is 21 000 years you’ve earned over 12 million achievement points at least two of those are mine uh guild wars 2 has had nine years of 99.9 server up time you know that’s true there was a the last time the servers went completely down do you guys remember like i think it was like a year or two ago there was a day where the eu servers were completely down and they were so apologetic that everyone they had to do a rollback and like everyone on eu got a free mount like a free mount skin because it that doesn’t normally happen they they usually are really really good at keeping them up uh buck is bad at math no i just muck doesn’t remember when it was that’s all uh that was what yes that was why uh our community is kind supportive tenacious and fashionable team arenanet for extra life has donated 381 thousand dollars to children’s miracle network hospitals uh your fancy animal friend’s most popular mount skins the hummingbird the spooky man i really don’t feel like i see this one that often i see these two all the time the spooky raptor magnificent hummingbird and the shrine guardian jackal uh overcoming battlefield challenges 354 million play wait hold on guess numbers are hard to read what did i read wrong uh overcoming battlefield challenges 354 million player defeats in world versus world 1.3 million players defeated during no down state events uh overcoming group challenges slash gg was used 60 why would you brag how many times we’ve killed ourselves that’s so weird slash gg was used over 60 million times in raids fractals and missiles and strike missions uh overcoming minor i mean that’s like right below it why don’t you put how many times people have afk’d in conquest wonderful yes i’d love to know how many times i gave up that’s it this is super weird uh overcoming minor challenges uh players have been downed 11 million it’s high yeah that’s why we gave up by unruly pocket raptors oh pocket raptors okay wait hold on 11.5 million deaths to pocket raptors guys come on you you’re better than this i know some of you are in this number you’re better than this good lord your legend lives on across 28 pvp league seasons and 20 000 p sorry 20 million pvp matches played journey to kantha since guild wars factions tyria’s total land mass has increased by 830 square miles brought to life with over 35 000 unique art icons 540 map loading illustrations guild wars 2 remains one of the most critically acclaimed mmos of all time the world will grow even more when end of dragons arrives february 20 22. nice yeah something really cool about tyria let me find it here um okay here you go this isn’t the one i was looking for this is a map of tyria the planet from all the games all the books all the lore this is guild wars 2. this is kantha from guild wars 1 and i think this might be nightfall i never played nightfall rival so this is how much stuff they’ve already made lore on that they’ve not actually used yet but yeah they’ve got a lot of space remaining to to do we could the next expansion we get lost at sea it’s just going to be right there yeah so there there’s a there’s a lot going on there all right so yeah new living world season four uh coming today ninth year birthday presents coming up uh we finally got a schedule for all this stuff people were thinking that they forgot about the festival the four wins that apparently is going to start this coming uh tuesday uh one week from today festival the four wins is going to start that looks like a great sword is that rev a lot of people have been guessing revs are getting great sword do we think are they do we think that they’re the uh the next thing hang on a second uh [Music] so this is their web page and a lot of people have been assuming that this is going to be the release order for the sneak peeks and that would actually put rev in the next batch of three maybe that might be it
