    Stupendous Halloween event in October that hosted world changing events and a lot of spooky content, the Lost Isles which does the same and adds a new dungeon among other things in November, and the Wintersday event in December?  Not even all my P2P games combined offer this much content updates in swift succession.

    Here's hoping for Player housing / guild halls and the release of The Crystal Desert in the near future (despite reports saying they weren't working on them yet).

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    I've been reading this but can't find word from Anet stating it. Can someone link me?

    BTW, we don't know how big the update will be. Halloween was standart size stuff. I do wonder what will be in this event. Also, what the actuall "one time content" will be. Is it just a cutscene like Mad King rise, or more stuff. Anyway, i'll be looking forward to find out.

    FrodoFragins- They said that in addition to the 1 time stuff, permanent content will be added. How much, is again the question.

    When are they going to add permanent end game content?

    This is one time event that will open that content. The Lost Shores and its new lv 80 dungeon are permanent, read more.

    Ah OK.  Like the gates of AQ in WOW.

     

    Ignore my whining.

    There was a live broadcast where they talked about the new dungeon.  It's basically an "endless" dungeon (best way to describe it in terms of the concept, but there is an actual end) whereby it gets more and more difficult with each level you move into.  Most people don't expect to reach the end, and it's likely to be a niche thing for most.

    Sounds interesting, but i wonder if it will be a grouping nightmare with player one currently at level 25 of the endless dungeon, player 2 on level 40 and player 3 just starting.  I'm assuming it's kind of like Torchlight 1's endless dungeon.

    No they said it was a high lvl dungeon for lvl 80's and the gear is uniqe to this dungeons even the drops.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Oh yeah, i remember now. Thanks for clearing it up. One of the most criticizes features of GW2 are the dungeons. It'll be interesting to see how this one goes, but the idea of it getting "harder and harder" sounds pretty cool.

    I love "endless" modes in games. I hope they really make it endless to see how far players can go, against all dev expectations. :)

    It would definitely give guilds something to strive for... and a third endless dungeon mode beside story and exploration for all the existing dungeons might be something that would really beef up pve endgame.

    Yep this would have to play out on the weekend i have to work... This is why i hate one time events. people with work, family, and adult lives always seem to miss out. Oh well, i guess i'll watch it on youtube.

    I could see a raid like Karazhan having an endless mode. (I'm not talking about going back to wow) I mean a haunted castle/house/ labrynith that makes you feel like your going insane with time loops and spirits/ghost/demons messing with your head. A haunted setting is a potential setting for an "endless" mode.

    Sounds exciting. First real content patch this soon after release. I'm impressed. For it being B2P and this update is free makes me even happier I bought GW2.


    =-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.
