    Really looking forward to the patch hope it ticks all the right boxes. Can't wait to explore a new area...if all the speculation is correct.

    I'm in two minds about their decision to announce nothing about the patch in advance. For those who are paying attention, it's a nice tease and builds up some hype. But it doesn't seem like a good strategy for getting people back into the game. If I haven't been playing for a year and I read on Massively that GW2 is releasing a new Living Story, I'll assume that we're getting something similar to Flame & Frost -- i.e. basically nothing dragged out over months and months. If they announced concrete features etc, then it might actually encourage people to re-install.

    I imagine they'll have a hard time living up to expectations with whatever comes out today. I don't think we'll get a whole new zone in the opening chapter, though.

    If we don't, then there will be a backlash, because they've given the impression that there will be one...

    I agree, I don't think we'll get a whole new zone from the outset, more likely a little story in the first week introducing the idea and then maybe next patch it opens a little bit of it...not sure how they might do it but I think they'd want to release a zone in small parts but that would mean lots of instances which would annoy the hell out of us.

    Fingers crossed they've thought of a good way to do it.

    Expectations are unrealistically high, however they have had a lot of time to prepare, with no new content since we killed Scarlet (no relation)

    My betting is a new zone, but the anount of new stuff to do in it will be lower than we hope.

    certainly everything Anet have released has pointed to a new zone, although I am surprised that they seem to be doing it straight up. I thought there would be a scene setting bit and then into the new zone in 2 weeks time.

    They did confirm "no fixing signs", which suggests they're going in with a bang this time rather than a prelude snoozefest.

    I don't think a new zone straight off is too much to hope for at this point. It has been 20 months since the last new open world zone, after all.

    Mild spoilers within:

    Toughness/vitality/healing gear! That's just what I've been waiting for in PvE.

    Also new zone pretty much confirmed: Dry Top.

    Dry top is said to be about the size of Southsun...not the biggest map but a reasonable size...sounds like they have some new map mechanics too, won't spoil it here but it can be found on Reddit and MMORPG and places like that

    Graph watching time! http://www.gw2spidy.com/item/24714

    And it wouldn't be reddit if it had anything of value in the OP:
    Four-piece bonus reduced from 10 to 5 seconds, six-piece bonus reduced from 7 to 5%. Not that big of a deal considering the big sell of the rune is the might duration, which has been left untouched.

    I'd say watch the price and buy if it gets low enough, probably won't be a permanent drop unless they add another way to get the rune.

    Well, they have spoiler free patch notes now.

    And by "spoiler" I mean "three dozen stealth dungeon 'fixes'"

    “Kick from Guild” will no longer appear in user context menus outside of the guild roster.

    i'll never be able to 'accidentally' kick anyone again
