Guild Wars 2 previews the minipet that makes its next legendary weapon so unique

If you just skimmed through Guild Wars 2’s living world season 4 episode 4 announcement video yesterday, fixated on the new zone and personal instance, you may have missed the reference to the new legendary scepter that’s had hardcore GW2 players buzzing for the last day and a half. It’s called Xiuquatl, and it’s gorgeous all on its own.

But Guild Wars 2 clarified today that the scepter isn’t alone. More specifically, you won’t be alone while wielding it.

Yep, that minipet/critter flapping along behind the wielder in the new trailer is actually part of the weapon itself. I’m getting major flashbacks to my World of Warcraft Hunter’s old wind serpent pet!

Bonus: The darn thing is apparently turning out to be really hard for people to spell.

And finally, a Guild Wars 2 post today just wouldn’t be right without mentioning this.

Seriously, GW2 is just the cutest MMO on the market right now! I’m spewing a little my necro doesn’t use scepter anymore, but I might have to grab that weapon (unless it’s like 100$ worth of loot box shenanigans).

While I admire the art of the Arby’s team, that just unsettles my stomach this early in the morning to look at!

It is a long grind like all the legendaries.

It’s a craftable legendary like the previous ones, you just need a lot resources.

The Necro aficionado in my guild is switching their Scourge build to using a scepter just to make use of this new legendary. They’re pretty excited about it.

That Arby’s stuff is crazy.

As a Scepter user though pretty “meh” on that part. The “Aztec/Mayan” style design is always cool but also very stylized and either looks like you plundered some 16th century Incan temples and whatever piece is your trophy item or you then gotta build your whole outfit around it.

Better results than the bubble tea partnership.

Arby’s social media team has been killing it for years, they’re absolutely fantastic.

I sense an incoming collab with Arby’s.
