''Due to its current unintended behavior, the Symbolic Avenger trait has been temporarily disabled until the next scheduled release. If you were using this trait, we suggest you select a different one until the trait is re-enabled.''

One step forward, two steps back. After last night's patch one of the new and fun traits for Rangers got hit pretty heavily. The bug related to it was stupid and I'm glad it's gone but this unfortunately also destroys the current Ranger build that revolves around Remorseless. It was fun …

''We're adding a new PvE achievement'' they said. What a load of hot air, earned almost exclusively through PvP. At least now I only have 2 more PvP titles to go and I've more or less ''finished'' PvP on my account.

Phew, the last 3 days have been overflowing with huge news bombs! We've gotten a fantastic video from E3 showing off Guild Halls and what kinds of stuff we can do with them. And I gotta say, as someone who didn't care at all about Guild halls I am absolutely pumped for this feature. We are able to do so much cool stuff in there. Check out the video and see Colin's short presentation and first look at Guild Halls.

 

It doesn't end there. Prepurchases are now live as well! The deluxe edition is somewhat on the expansive side but it does come with a gem card for 4000 gems. The deluxe and smaller versions come with an exclusive glider and a Revenant Rytlock mini along with some other features.

Yeah, it's a bit daft. It would have been nice to be able to switch it out with something else. I have no quarrel with the core game being there, through. It's a great deal for new players.

Sorry for the double post, but I feel this is important enough to warrant it. Since the livestream was cut short due to twitch crashing we were not able to see all classes and their new skills, traits, mechanics and changes. Just for the hell of it here are a few things that stood out for me personally and which I found very interesting. If you want to be surprised or see everything for yourself, DO NOT READ FURTHER. Now on to the rambling.

 

 

General:

Boons and conditions being converted or corrupted will now be picked at random instead of a priority system or last applied. The entire list got updated as well, like Aegis is now converted/corrupted to Burning.

 

Elementalist:

Frostbow has been buffed instead of nerfed. The number 2 and 3 skills now do 25% increased damage.

Lots of Elementalist skills now apply burning including several stacks for some of them.

Bolt to te Heart got a pretty nice buff as well.

Damage modifiers from Earth and Water got mostly moved around or removed, Arcana now has new damage modifiers.

 

Engineer:

Most (if not all) toolbelt skills had their recharge reduced.

Bunker down creates medpacks. I can already see the trolling of one Engineer standing in one spot, constantly healing untill some poor guy tries to stop him and eats 5 mines in one go.

Engineers get even more anti-Thief tools with a new trait called Lock-On. Hitting a stealthed unit with anything automatically reveals them and applies vulnerability for a long time.

 

Guardian:

Lots of damage multipliers have been toned down or even removed.

Virtues now have a reduced cooldown and some skills like Tomes got reworked into shouts or signets.

 

Mesmer:

Phantasms now have increased damage and bouncing skills now always bounce once more.

Mimic got reworked in an amazing way. Using Mimic now makes the next utility skill you use go on a 1 second recharge.

Illusionary Persona is now baseline. You are now able to use your shatters without a clone.

 

Necromancer:

Life siphon skills now heal you through Deathshroud. Some skills got new effects which cause you to heal allies or even revive allies by the same amount in the Blood Magic line.

Consume Conditions got nerfed in a rather big way. Using it now applies a ton of vulnerability to you and the rechearge got increased.

Blood is Power now gives 8 might to you and nearby allies for 8 seconds.

New Necromancer trait called Vampiric Presense. This is it boys, you and all your allies will automatically siphon health when they attack in combat.

 

Ranger:

All Ranger pets now have increased stats including toughness. Pet drawing more aggro in dungeons, ahoy!

Spirits are now unable to move, have 75% chance to trigger their effects and got new active abilities. These abilities are more potent but will destroy the spirit when used.

Rangers get more access to Fury.

The Beast mastery line has been reworked and now actually has a lot of interesting new effects for your pets. Things like your pet taunting and blinding are now all options you can pick.

 

Thief:

Stolen skills are now on a new F2 button. You are now able to steal and overwrite your current stolen item instead of being forced to use it.

Haste no longer removes your endurance and now grants you Fury as well.

Traps no longer deal damage and can now be freely used in stealth without revealing you.

10% damage above 6 initiative has been removed and replaced with 10% crit chance to foes above 50% health :[

New trait gives increased crit damage above 90% health along with one that increases your ferocity based on your precision, and another one that keeps increasing your Fury duration and gives you extra ferocity if you have Fury. Do we like big numbers?

 

Warrior:

Berserker's Power got reworked and now only gives you more damage if you use a burst skill. It is also now more potent.

The Warhorn trait no longer converts conditions and instead just removes them now.

You are able to build for full damage and get Phalanx Strength at the same time!

 

 

And that's about it. Remember that this isn't even the tip of the iceberg. I just wrote a few things down which I thought were interesting and I'm sure I missed a ton of stuff as well. Most stuff looks really interesting so far and I can't wait to test everything out for myself. Read all about it in the link provided for the full list of changes.

Overall I'm happy, but they removed one of my favourite Mesmer traits! Thank you to Triumphant Distortion for saving my life on many occasions, I'll miss you dearly.

This was mentioned literally 10 seconds ago in the twitch chat when the livestream crashed, so right now at the time of me writing this this is hot news. It may or may not be well known already by the time you are reading this but here goes.

 

The patch with the new trait, skill and specialization changes will drop on the 23rd!

I'm not usually the type of person who shares community made content. This however, this is something everyone should see. Not only is the song really well made and good to listen to, the context and lyrics are hilarious. for the people who browse reddit or look for other Guild Wars community related stuff, this is the same guy who made the Icebow Number 4 song.

63 hours of non-stop farming while cutting away the parts I took a break or went afk. I swear to god if Revenants aren't playable this beta I will go to Arenanet's building and flip one of their tables personally.

Chronomancer is now an official thing. From what I can tell, this gives Mesmers an absolute guaranteed spot in dungeon groups. Not only do they buff the attack speed and cooldown recharges of allies, but they also stun enemies and completely block projectiles. Hopefully this gives Mesmers the spot they deserve without having to rely on gimmicky reflects which a Guardian can do along with other stuff.

Good to see that people still care for their loved classes :D

I'm quite excited for what the other elite specs will be, especially considering that mesmer probably got a quite powerful one in terms of abilities because it only got the off-hand shield.

Still think the others will be quite powerful too though ^^

They definitely raised the bar for people's expectations. I had some modest ideas for Mesmers which would have been amazing. Then they went ahead and added all of those along with a ton more even better things.

I blame arenanet for making weapon skins I really, really love. At least that's my nighttime weapon skins sorted and I can stop looking for fractal weapons I will never get.

Depends how you look at it. I had 4 skins already unlocked and 4 more I wanted to get regardless. So by buying the remaining 8 skins I wasn't planning to get from the trading post I would get 7 black lion tickets to buy and sell 7 more weapons. In the end what I had to ''spend'' to get the entire collection was only about 200 gold if you don't count the ones I was planning to get anyway. It seemed like a good deal.

All the hard work finally paid off today. I know it's not much of an achievement, nor is the pet really all that big of a deal, but I'm really happy to be able to show off a mini not everyone has which I feel I worked hard for to earn. The mail from arenanet was a little anti-climactic, …
