    Can't lie, after Heart of Thorns, I'm not expecting much from this expansion. Any speculation besides the usual "new zones"?

    Imagine if they released Quaggan as a playable race.. they could probably do it pretty easily.

    Would rather play skritt

    Honestly though, the first expansion butchered the game for me. I'm interested to see the new expansion but it would have to do something pretty drastic to get me to come back at this point. Not to sound overly negative, I actually would love to come back, I just despised the Thorns expansion and the way it completely changed the game.

    I think content pack would be a better name for this one..

    Heart of Thorns seemed light as an expansion but this seems even worse.. and the prices aren't any different I don't think. *pre purchases deluxe edition*

    Announced for September 22 release. Does that seem too soon? Does there feel like enough content? Do you feel they did alright with the price point this time (versus Heart of Thorns)?

    Well they said they have had a separate team on the expansion to the one on living world/current builds so no it doesn't

    I've been playing GW2 lately but after watching the trailer I don't think I'll buy this new expansion. Seems "meh", also the new ranger spec doesn't look so nice, and as someone who mains ranger that's a pitty.

    seems more like a bigger patch rather than an actual expansion..

    oh there will be more than enough content ... because they got 2 teams working on 2 different things 1 for expansion and 1 for living world ...

    bought the 80 euro ultimate edition worth every penny ... unsubed wow and returned to GW2

    Expansion preview weekend has started . Unlocked my perm mount ,left the story instance >started jumping around on the raptor and then my game crashes.. Not sure if it was my bad pc or the game . But probably my pc , I run the game on the lowest settings and I can't even log in at times without getting a BSOD.

    Just not feeling the game at the moment, might be more fun if I had a decent pc.

    the Demo is as much as i expected me and my friend were disappointed because we wanted to test new elite specs whic htehy did not have in this preview ... seems like they adding them next weekend ... so we just left it sit because all we want to rly test are the elite specs to determine which classes we want to play

    No new class this time around? Dervish would have been awesome.

    Tried GW2 this weekend a bit and was surprised how bad the performance is. FPS was dipping below 60 in a lot of areas, don't think it ever went above 100.
