Guild Wars 2 readies fourth beta event and invites you to tea

    
11

Guild Wars 2 is preparing for its next big beta event – not this weekend during the holiday, but the weekend after, from November 30th to December 4th. Players will be able to test out all nine of the new End of Dragons elite specs, as well as the siege turtle mount. As during past such events, you’ll be able to use the free beta slots to roll up a test character on the main servers; nothing you do on those characters will be saved or count toward your account, however.

If you can’t wait that long, you can scope out the turtle on today’s ArenaNet stream, which kicks off at 3 p.m. EST this afternoon.

If you need something to do right now, you can leap in to the latest “return to the living world” freebie episode, Jormag Rising, which is yours for the claiming all week.

And if you don’t want to do anything at all, you can sit yourself down and have a spot of tea in the new tea time chair novelty item in the cash shop because this is a thing that exists. “A second player can join you for tea by pressing F to interact with the chair,” the studio suggests. “Use the tea sipping emotes to have a party for two.” I think the Anet dev who came up with selling you guys chairs just invented the double-decker couch?

Is Anet selling house by pieces? Where’s the rest of the house?

As a hot tea with cream and sugar drinking, pinky waggling, quasi-Anglophile nerd, the table and tea pot appeals to me. The asura are ADORABLE using it. I’ve not seen a Norn or Charr yet (which is what most of my characters are).
Unfortunately out of the eight characters I have, not a single one ever uses a focus in any of their builds.

I’ve seen norn and charr (and even put my own norn in one). It’s as hilarious as you’d imagine. XD

Problem with spilling the tea as a weapon is that there are way too many great focus skins such as the Minstrel, Courage, Ambrosia, and Adam, and not nearly enough well-used alts to use them all on.

One of my prior roommates actually backed that game on Kickstarter. :p
They knew it would never likely finish, but wanted to give money to something they believed SHOULD exist in the mmo-sphere.

The tea chair should have 2 abilities: pinky finger and pretentious remark, using both should give other players a debuff: annoyed or enraged.

I always wanted a tea related class in any game :-D

Seriously, though, more MMOs need novelty items like these. FFXIV comes close, but still waiting on that sip emote.

X to splash hot tea in your adversaries face and flip the table on them.

Or, just passive aggressively sip at them. :p
