The new skins

Here's 2 examples, but they all follow the theme.



The distortion in the screen shots is from the aura. They eminate these 3d transparent cubes in a smoke-like fashion.

    For me, it's not so much that I dislike them. I just think that they don't fit with GW2. They look like they belong to a 3D CGI VR from the 80s (The Original Tron)

    The blade design would be OK, but change the "digital" aura and hilts.

    I like the look of the new backpiece skin on asuras.

    The shield is decent, though, no where near as good as the guild commendation one.

    I am not a fan of the shield but I like the staff .....

    You do know that these skins are for the April Fools instnace of GW2.

    they are ok. I am not too concerned about having one for myself, but I have no concern at all if someone else has them.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.

    Other then the Chainsaw GW skin I have not been a fan of any special weapon skins in GW2.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    No, you can use them outside of the instance.

    i like the scepter, GS, and shield.. others are ok nothing special but fun.. i liked the halloween ones more overall

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    No, I hate free content.

    Personally I like the sword and greatsword ones better than the legendary ones, the look at least. I want to get them for my mesmer (if I only could recolor them purple).

    What can men do against such reckless hate?
