    GW2 2016 updates

    There's no good thread for this so I'm starting another.

    Today's state of the game post:
    https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/s...pdate-q1-2016/

    They're moving more towards quarterly major updates.

    We get an updated Shatterer in 2 weeks (worst world boss, so this is good - albeit 2.5 year since they did the last!) A bunch of other small stuff too including some Fractals QoL changes.

    No date for a new raid wing or LS3, which is disappointing.

    Also, "we may not be ready to reveal more" in early 2016 about the WvW overhaul.

    Good to hear that they're slowly revamping world bosses, I like them and if they all get to Teqzilla levels then it's great.

    The fractal changes are fantastic, only there's, again, nothing about leaderboards or any sort of new content.

    The event contribution boost sounds good, sounds to me like for some support might be needed in bigger quantities (healers/buffers in open world PvE?).

    Tybalt, heh.

    New world/raid boss decorations, good, it's a start.

    You’ll also see lots of additional polish, balance to existing fractals and rewards, changes and polish to instabilities, additional reasons to play all the different fractals, and most importantly, new fractals (yes, you read that right: new fractals!).
    Yes, finally, new fractals!

    In 2016 we aim to provide a more balanced focus, which will see efforts divided equally between providing regular updates and working toward the next expansion.
    He's driving me mad with this next expansion talk. I really wish they'd finish delivering this one before putting any sort of effort in another half-developed expansion release. Because I doubt I'm buying the next one at release day if this is how they do expansions.

    Ugh, legendary fractal backpack is in the very last "looking longer term" category. So late 2016 then?

    Maybe - if we're very lucky - they could even come before the three-year anniversary of the last-released new Fractals!

    The squad UI updates sound pretty useful for our events.

    Surprised there's nothing on Scribing and decorations.

    Well there is the stmt they are adding in the statues for the world bosses, Teq etc, though behind a token's wall, at least they dont need to be crafted for 1000g worht of mats or something by the sounds of it.

    Nothing looking particularly major, gliding will be fun but no doubt invisible walls will be everywhere. Mostly looks like qol and tacit admission they fucked up with some of the wvw changes.

    Gliding stuff: now that i think about it again, unless they drastically extend glide duration/length its going to be a bit of a damp squib in Tyria, with no updrafts around to extend your flight time, its mostly going to probably go find something tall to jump off and glide a bit.

    Gliding in Central Tyria. I fucking called it.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    • Shared Inventory Slots are now available starting at 700 gems each in the Upgrade category of the Gem Store. These slots will allow an item placed in them to be accessible by any character on the account. These slots will appear at the top of your inventory once purchased. Each account can have up to 5 Shared Inventory Slots at this time.


    This will make it easier to move your gathering tools and will certainly have the salvage-o-matic in it but i'm not sure that 700 gems is worth the convenience...

    I bought one just for the salvage-o-matic, but that's all.

    New legendaries are no longer on the table. Except for the shortbow (that widely-used weapon):
