Guild Wars 2 previews its next raid boss, and it’s a horror sloth

Are you ready to jump into battle against the next raid boss in Guild Wars 2? The team previewed the next boss on the regular Friday Guild Chat livestream, and it…

Wait a minute. That’s a sloth. Some sort of horror sloth. Some… giant evil sloth monster? No. Wait. This is not all right. This is somehow worse than if you just made an enormous spider or something. This is not permitted, ArenaNet. This is not acceptable.

Oh, no, it comes with sloth-grub companions alongside it? How did you make sloths horrifying? That’s it, we’re out. The old stream can be viewed on Twitch, this is not all right, why would you cross a sloth with a grub. What would possess you to do that. Good night.

rhaps85 ApathyCurve No it really isn’t.The best thing the game has going for it is the combat system, but that doesn’t hold up well when everything backing it is either mediocre or just plain bad. The class balance has been nothing short of abysmal since launch.  Their raid design is just bad, “How do we make this hard? Let’s put a timer on it!”. Their continued push for esports has ruined SPvP. Their complete lack of support for dungeons and WvW has left a good portion of the game rotting. Then lets not forget what a mess most of the mechanics in the game are. How many times has ArenaNet put out a patch that is either 1 step forward and 2 steps back or something that even on paper the community knows is a terrible decision with zero, or worse, benefit to the game.

Don’t worry though! Next patch they have some great things coming that will fix everything! They just can’t talk about that right now. :P

If you want Raiding or dungeons then do WoW or FFXIV. If you want story then do FFXIV or SWTOR. If you want PvP pretty much any other MMO out there, even those aren’t great but are still better lol.

I played GW2 for about four hours.  That’s how long it took me to realize it was hammered shite.  Proof is above.

I once went to a fossil exhibit that showcased a prehistoric sloth skull. I made the mistake of scoffing at it in the presence of the curator… who proceeded to go all Jurassic Park on me about how freaking dangerous and deadly and bad ass dinosloths were. I left with a new appreciation of the dinosloth… and crazed sloth fans.
Guess now I’ll have a chance to see if he was right.

And they also can’t sort the bullshit that is the WvW overhaul yet. This “Soon(TM)” crap i keep hearing is irritating to say the least.

Qarran To be fair, sloths can be scary. In the right context.

So… over the years we have seen a wide variety of bosses, raid bosses and in general mobs.  In all of those years, and I won’t date myself on this but let’s just say many, I don’t remember of sloth.  Sure there have been other cutsey type bosses.  Some, that in RL I would not consider remotely feral or dangerous but this… this must have been the only thing left on the list.
