    that's great news Bankrotas, I'll look forward to seeing you complete your rainbow of characters. and err when where you last around?

    Anet re-did the bosses, world bosses are now on a timer
    Ascended crafting has arrived
    The living story has finished, there is a new one starting in a few weeks.
    The new Wurm boss is the hardest large scale event in the game.
    Lions Arch has been destroyed.

    Other things off the top of my head
    Megaserver means low level areas are busier
    New Living story on 1st July will (probably) involve a new zone (or more?) off Brisban Wildlands
    Zephyr Sanctum is back until end June
    New wardrobe for skins and account-bound-dyes, for more cosmetic customisation
    Ascended gear is now account bound
    Scarlet is dead
    Change traits at will out of combat
    Free repairs to damaged armour
    Some rune and sigil reworks. Runes of strength are good but very pricey.
    Crit damage % replaced by ferocity, reducing crit damage slightly


    And some stuff the same:
    Guild missions haven't changed at all in 15 months
    Full zerker is still the meta in PVE
    Fiery Greatswords still overpowered
    RPS still great

    Did you guys see the datamined stuff? It looks like we might just get an extra corner added to BW in the first instance (although of course there might be a new zone too).

    Is it maguuma is too small (ie fewer than others) in zones anyway so should get one? T'other thing was that I got that toxic crystal recipe - 100 cond dmg and 10% longer so if you want some just lob me the toxic spores -i've got the rest in hand

    Damn. Should've been more specific. I have been following the updates a bit. What I lack, is the deeper underlying information about: how classes now feel, is condi viable, how is berserk, are the champ trains still existing (though I read a hint on reddit, that they're nerfed), how hard it is to get gold, how are dungeons/fractals, how are new traits, how is WvWvW going (even though, I'm not interested in participation, but it still interests me, I kinda don't like Server fights partly anymore and Lineage 2 in my opinion has made best PvP with tangible rewards and nothing beats that). You know, stuff like that, but don't worry, I don't ask you to write essays, I can't bear reading them myself, I'll get hold of you on mumble to interogate.

    Story Journal update for Living World:

    https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/i...story-journal/

    TL;DR you'll be able to play any living story step you have unlocked at any time. But if you miss a two-week release window you'll have to pay 200 gems to unlock that bit of the story.

    wow, that actually looks really good.

    classes haven't changed a whole lot except when you're levelling with the new way of unlocking traits.
    'zerk is still the meta for most PvE content, although condi is now "OP" in WvW and PvP.
    champ trains still exist in high level areas, though they removed the Queensdale champ train.
    Anet have slowly been down-valueing gold so although it is easy to get it's worth is less now.
    Dungeons & fractals haven't really changed (although there is a rumour that they fixed dredge)
    Having said that, they introduced mystlock instabilities in high level fractals which are either fun or annoying depending on your PoV.
    The new traits are mostly uninspiring, though some are situationaly useful and the ability to reset your traits outside of combat at no cost makes life pretty easy.

    This I did not expect:

    Full (non fractal) molten and aether dungeons, and guild Marionette events...

    I boggled slightly at the chance to do the molten dungeon again but bet they'd feck with the loot though. Azure Orbs.............................................. .....................

    Apart from azurite orbs, you can do all of the interesting parts of the molten dungeon in Fractals. That middle bit was painfully boring.

    Not sure how they will be doing this...if they want a changing evolving world how would you go back to do things like part one of season 2 wouldn't the world be different the longer you wait to do them...

    Anyway excited to find out but a little bit worried lol.

    They cut quite a lot of aether, the whole JP for example. I also thought the first molten section was different , with a variable boss after the tunnel. I agree there was a lot of filler tho.

    I haven't learned anything from the last season. I'm getting enthusiastic again.

    Dammit! This can only end badly!
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    Crazy fool stop your silliness!

    The drops from the molten dungeon proper were different from the fractal though...

    I don't think that's what they meant, but guild Marionette would be awesome.

    I'm guessing that there is going to be a lot more instanced stuff around the world that you can go back and re-play; and adding permanent content into a new zone is probably much easier than creating permanent content to fit in one of the existing zones - where it would have to fit around hearts and events.

    Yeah that could work. If season 2 is mainly in new zone(s) then they could keep it controlled and add a new zone for each season of the story and there by expand on the world...that sounds like a good idea.
