Is there any official explanation on the charr poses in the dialogue cutscenes? I understand the wounded pose all right, but then there’s the Standing Tall and the Just Standing / Standing Low thing that sometimes LOOKS like it could be a dominance thing but not always?
Here’s standing low:
And standing tall (… or vice versa if you’re looking at Rytlock but why would you look at Rytlock Fuiri is much prettier):
Like any Charr players know, it’s not something that happens for a beat or anything, the posture just is different and I don’t get it. (I don’t think it’s side-related, either, even though my screenies look like it.)
I’m personally much more fond of the more crouched pose and kind of wish it’s be the one that’s always happening.
Er anyway, anyone know if there is some lore reason behind this or if it’s something that “just happens”?
I read that you get your f4 skill sometime after level 20 and was like ‘okay sure, Igraine and Fuiri are necros and don’t need F4, Kara is lvl 80 so she has it unlocked, Morgause and Kerah don’t need F4 either, and Sonya usually doesn’t do much shattering so big deal and isn’t she like 40 by now anyway? But then I went WAIT WHAT ABOUT GWEN???
And surely enough my EARTH themed elementalist has no access to her earth atunement yet (which she DID, prior to this patch, and yes I DID use it, I liked the defense aspect of it…). >__>
I fully of get where this comes from - personally I find the atunements a lot to take in and remember because you have so many skills in just one weapon set, and you need to be able to use them efficiently to your advantage - but I’m still a little bit bummed because I DID have it unlocked already and I don’t like it when stuff I already have is taken away from me. Basically I’m like a kid who doesn’t know how to use something but is really bummed when it’s taken away from me. C:
(Also hey I really like this hero panel window with the choices from character creation because after some time I have no idea what I picked for anyone - though Gwen’s cycle was fairly obvious from the name haha. I can now finally check which cycle I picked for Igraine because I honest-to-Gods can’t remember!)
I love it when NPCs have no sense of personal space and basically end up standing on top of you haha (I usually get that in Skyrim where Cicero pushes me off things or out of doorways all the time - thank goodness for high sneak skill…). Fuiri looks really annoyed. “I KNOW OUR WARBAND JUST DIED AND YOU PROBABLY WANT TO PROTECT ME BECAUSE I’M SMALLER THAN YOU BUT GOOD GRIEF CLAWSPUR GIVE ME SOME SPACE????”
Also Black Citadel now has these weird spots called “Unknown” that I never saw there before. Both ones I saw were at either end of a ramp. Probably a bug, they can’t be interacted with or anything. They just amuse me, random floating unknowns. ^^
Stuff found in wardrobe!
Glorious, Hellfire and Radiant full sets.
This is a nice comprehensive post of the new sets
and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by the parity! Especially in the Glorious and Radiant sets (aside from the light armor crop top but ehhhhh).
The Glorious set makes me laugh a little because at first I was irritated by the boob pockets on the heavy top, until I realized the guys kind of got boob pockets too so there ya go.
The banjo-kazzoie music fits this ridiculous stuff perfectly.
Everyone watch this. In other news, I’m going to be very absent from GW2 starting now because this ship is sinking fast and I’d hate to stick around and mistakenly let Anet devs think the direction they’re taking the game is somehow okay, worthwhile, or worth supporting.
The September feature pack is basically the story of how this game went from my most surefire recommended game to anyone I knew with any passing interest to the game I can’t in good conscience recommend to anyone. So good job, everyone involved in this patch. You’ve seen the last dollar from me. Don’t worry, I’m sure word of mouth advertising is completely worthless anyway.
Fooling around with the empty character slot AGAIN, this is what I do best. Rolled a necro because necros are fun and also I really wanted the wraith mask unlocked for my account! Look at this beauty queen hah! For once I have managed to roll a charr I could actually like playing whoah. My mistake was always sticking with the traditionally “cuter” faces. They just didn’t interest me long enough.
This one is really cute, though, in a rougher way. :3 She’s probably not a keeper but we’ll see. She’d be a more interesting addition to my roster of characters than Irri or Val because when you have two borderline separatists, adding a charr to the mix could be interesting. C:
But idek whether she stays or goes I like the look. ^^
Tried new character leveling. Feels dumbed down (really? no bundle items??? A lot of hearts just got about 1000 times more boring and less cute tyvm), gated, and funneled. At least say that the compass arrow isn’t indicating what you HAVE TO DO next but where nearest level-appropriate content is. Not that it matter this early in the game, really. >__>
ok dulfy sign me up
I got this.
I need this.
There used to be an ascended trinket that was “The Shiniest Shiny” and you don’t know how bitterly disappointed I was when it was removed from the game entirely before I could get it for myself.
I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED
