Guild Wars 2’s War Eternal is definitely dropping in May – here’s the features trailer

    
13

It’s the closest thing we’ve got to a date on Guild Wars 2’s next living world episode so far: ArenaNet just announced that War Eternal, the final episode for the season, is launching “next month.” There’s a wee trailer too showing off the new Skyscale mount with its vertical takeoffs, the new legendary greatsword weapon (yay rainbows), and the new Mist Shard armor set, which pretty much looks like crystals and dragon scales. (That greatsword though! Daaaaaang.)

As for which day in May the episode will land? That’s still up in the air, but last week’s release of the War Eternal Supply Drop Requisition purchase might be a clue, as the final week for that sale ends May 20th.

Want something to mull over while you wait? Our own Flameseeker Chronicles column argued this morning that what Guild Wars 2 needs is housing. (But we’ll take that greatsword too, OK?) The trailer is below!

I’m pretty excited. A new dragon mount and some crystal/dragon scale themed armor, both are right up my alley. Plus a resolution to last patch’s cliffhanger. Lot’s to be excited for while we wait for the big LW season 5 announcement.

Dragon mount, last legendary weapon for a long time. Gives me a reason to login and do it.

Do we know that for sure? They could just go right into gen 3 legendary weapons.

WoW and GW2 and their over sized weapons. Ugh.

Yeah I hate it. Thankfully one of the anniversary weapons that they give you is a Great sword that actually looks like a functional sword with a thin metal blade so I use that.

Because we don’t have enough of these.

Mist Shard armor looks pretty nice.

Greatsword is pretty meh.

That’s a shame, was hoping for something more Reaperish for the Great Sword.

I always wanted a staff that would change based on what class was wielding it. So like a base staff model, then different particle effects/parts based on if a Necro had it or a Mesmer or each Element for Elementalist, Thief, or Revenant, etc.

Your reaper will use the hammer (which he or she can’t actually use) and like it!

One of my most anticipated parts of these episodes is seeing what the new legendary weapon looks like. Finally seeing the new greatsword versus the ideas I imagined is a bit off-putting, but I quite like this one in the end. Coupled with a new mount to play with and hopefully a teaser at the end for content to come, I cannot wait for this episode to come out!
