So, this release looks like it's going to be a lot bigger than ANet is letting on. What's most interesting is that they're using the dataminers own abilities against them. As you know, dataminers dig into the .dat files (iirc) and pull out new and relevant bits of information that tend to give sneak peaks into the next release. But this time there's nothing preloaded for them to find. Yet today... the main Queens Speech page was vandalized, and the folks at guild wars 2 guru received an interesting package

 

Speculation is running wild.

    You don't find it interesting that they're taking a different approach to releasing information about the upcoming content? They claim it's going to be huge and wrap up all the events of the living story so far and tie them all together. Yet the release page hardly told us anything. Now tidbits are trickling out and the datamining folks can't find anything.  How can you not be a little interested?

     

    Wait... that was bully in the skirt? Oh man... what has been seen... <shudder>

    When do the new skills get patched in ? Does anyone know yet?

    Little forum boys with their polished cyber toys: whine whine, boo-hoo, talk talk.

    They haven't said as of yet, just still going on the "by the end of the year" thing. New skills and traits (and ways to get them) will be a nice addition indeed.

    Nice marketing. Scarlet attacking the queen during the speech wouldn't be much of a surprise, though.

    I'm actually enjoying this story arc. I love how each update is like a TV episode, and we're all actors in each episode and in the whole serial. Compared to Flame & Frost, this was more engaging -- the introductory scene, the Pavilion, the Aetherblades coming out of the sky and attacking balloons (what?). I'm staying away from reddit and the official forums until the update drops; I don't want to spoil myself.

    She has been mentioned once, by Mai Trin, after she is captured.

    Basically saying that she's going to be in so much trouble with Scarlet.

    So she's the leader of the Aetherblades, or in charge of the people who fund Aetherblades... or something.

    It's not really certain.

    There was also a mysterious female who had something to do with the Flame & Frost arc, who was never introduced by name or shown, just hinted at.

    At least he is posting news about games he plays on those game's specific forums. Unlike some here, who spend more time bashing games they don't play than positively participating in the communities of those they play.

    Great info Volkon, thanks!

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    For sale: Logan's sword. Never been used. Only dropped once - he swears.

    He has a new shield now. Big enough to cover his back when he runs away ...

    And then there's this.

    Username, stickied post ... maybe just someone having fun, maybe more. Keep your eyes open around here, wouldn't be surprised about some strange forum post.

    If the White Mantle were to return then you'd open the door to the Mursaat returning as well. In that case, Agony Resist takes on a whole new meaning!  As far as the scope of the game goes, that would indeed be huge.

     

    Thanks for that Naqaj!
