Bluetouchpaper All long term players are poor is what you’re saying? I dont think thats true, i regularly drop 50 euro on gems and i see most veteran players with alot of gemstore items.

If only we would know the true size. It makes judging the value difficult.

The pricing of this expansion made me give up on playing Guild Wars 2 for the time being . Kind of the reverse effect that A-net had been hoping for I imagine . When I can get it for 25 pounds or less I may take a look at the game again . It just feels like A-net are taking the piss out of their long term players .

Superbrak Bannex19 maybe it derails the hype train for the 5% of pro players who want challenging group content. but the majority of GW players are casual PVErs. and they wouldn’t care…

wild_abyss there were some glitches with the last patch. when you use the makeover kit, you could see some new hairstyles. 
so…maybe. ;)

Quite an overprice expansion for what it brings to the table imho. Miss the good old guild wars day where the expansion are really meaty and worth their weight. The evolution of Anet.

I don’t really care for the raids or hype. I enjoy the core game enough that the initial purchase has been worth the full price.
I just have the expectation that the expac will have the same level of attention as the initial launch. The pack looks like it definitely has tons of content in it for somebody that enjoys the games style but so did WoD…
