OP  6/20/13 7:47:17 AM#1

ArenaNet has announced the next Guild Wars 2 content update. Called "Sky Pirates of Tyria", the new content will bring more additions to the Living Story, a new dungeon, new quests, and the news that custom arenas and spectator mode will be entering the live game. Sky Pirates of Tyria is expected to go live on June 25th.

Details of the update include:

  • New Story Dungeon: Aetherblade Retreat – Find the hidden entrance to the Aetherblade base and take the fight to the pirates. It’ll take skill, courage, and no small measure of agility to battle through to the Aetherblade Captain and First Mate.
  • Sea of Sorrows Scavenger Hunt – In this new, permanent content, players search for clues to the locations of 12 plaques that have been set up to honor the history of the city and its founder, in the novel Sea of Sorrows by our very own Ree Soesbee, narrative designer, ArenaNet, hitting store shelves and Amazon on Tuesday, June 25.
  • New Rewards – A variety of new rewards are available, including Aetherblade caches, a First Mate Horrik miniature companion, a stylish monocle and more.
  • Skill and Trait Balance Update – The largest balance patch ever is being introduced in this build, which includes significant updates to traits and skills to introduce more viable build diversity. Every profession trait line is seeing changes.  Updates also have been made to some less popular skills to improve their effectiveness.
  • Custom Arenas and Spectator Mode leaves Beta – Custom PvP arenas allow players to host private matches, and customize their map settings. This feature is leaving beta, which means that Custom Arena Starter Kits will be available for anyone to purchase in the Gem Store. Spectator Mode also is officially out of beta. Together, these two features allow for practice, competitive play and tournaments.
  • Mortar Mastery Joins the Growing List of World vs. World Abilities – Players can increase their mortar effectiveness by training in Mortar Mastery. Improvements in this line include increasing mortar blast radius, beefing up on damage, reducing skill recharge, and even adding a new skill, Mortar Barrage.

They still keep pumping out the content updates.  That's impressive.  I'm also glad they're polishing up their systems to be on par (or better) than GW1, e.g.: spectator modes and such.

I logged in for the first time in months yesterday and was amazed to see I was put on an OVERFLOW server. That's something I hadn't seen since the very first month of the game's launch.

It's crazy how fast they keep putting out new events - honestly I can't keep up with THEM :p

 

I'm sure players who play much more are glad there's something new pretty much every month...


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

Generally still disappointed.  They really continue to neglect PvP over PvE.  With PvP they continue to add features that should have been in at launch while actually expanding on PvE.  Really excited to see balance changes though.

Amazing how quick they are pumping out these content updates.  I do wish they would add another high level zone.  Cursed shores is great and all but you can only mess around there so long.  Also maybe one day they will lay off the temporary living story stuff and add something permanent.  I may be in the minority but I really have never liked temporary content and haven't touched the "living story".

You were probably in Lion's Arch. :)

This game is awesome, I left it last november, came back in march and loving it ever since.

As someone who quit because of a lack of meaningful PvE content I would disagree.

 

I am wondering if this patch will bring forth the ever requested Dungeon Finder tool?  So far this looks like a great first step in getting me back playing the game but I will not return until a LFG tool is implemented.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

"Custom Arenas and Spectator Mode leaves Beta – Custom PvP arenas allow players to host private matches"

Its great as it is in beta right now...this will be one of the best content updates any game has ever had. The only game that is going to be able to touch this any time soon will be Neverwinter IF they allow Foundry PvP content to be created.

GW2 is growing into one the best MMOs ever made.

 Name me one single game to EVER release with the things that have been added in GW2 since launch...go on. Just one.

Saw the title of this update and got really excited thinking there were airships or airship battles invovled. I appreciate the updates but I'd really like to see something differnet from a new dungeon, pvp mode or map, or new gear.

 

Where's the guild halls more importantly? Is that ever happenning?

So, people guessed the title right.

It looks like a good addition. I really hope the balance patch is a good one, because some weapons and skills need major changes.

Uh...name one meaningful addition they've made to PvP since launch?  The answer is none.  Balance has been horrible since launch leaving several classes underperforming and useless in PvP when directly compared to another class you could bring.  They've added new maps to sPvP that continue to remain the same singular mode present since launch.  Now they've added spectator mode and custom arenas, again for a singular pvp mode of point capture and hold.  WvW they got rid of culling and added an AA path that's not meaningful at all and took out the orbs and replaced them with nothing meaningful because they couldn't figure out how to stop the hacking.

So just like most themeparks out there PvP is neglected again.  Which is a travesty if you compare to GW1 even at its launch.

Also they can churn out all the content they want.  However, if it's not good, which is an opinion obviously, it's just a waste.

Good news on this front, people have datamined information about an LFG tool that will indeed be coming. It may not be this patch, but it's real.

Majority of it has been fluff.  Only a few really good content patches and no one time events do not count.  You had fractals and you had southsun.  That's it and the game is been out near a year now.  There's hardly any guild level PvE stuff and theres zero progression stuff outside of legendary's.

Its better to be quiet and perceived as stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Yeah, LFG tool has apparently been datamined, but it doesn't seem to be your typical LFG ala WoW. It's more akin to making your group publicly advertised and accessible as opposed to game automating everything on its own.

Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.

Magic without Technology is fantasy.
Magic without Nature is formless and useless.

Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

Yea I heard about that, its why I asked.  Ohh well here's hoping that gets put in soon™.

Well, I'm inclined to believe you actually do play GW2 with dodge skills that refined. 

 

Yes, one time/ limited time content counts. Super Adventure Box, for example, gave a lot of people a lot of fun and will be returning in the future. The key to the limited time content is that they don't clog up the game with instances, areas and content that die off as new things come along. Things that come and go are fresh when they're around without having the chance to stale and be forgotten. 

There's also progression in WvW now with the WvW specific talents, and if you think those aren't significant you really need to get out more. Guild stuff is there as well, every week my guild is doing our guild content mostly for fun, but also for the accommodations. 

 

Ignoring what they've added doesn't mean they didn't add it.
