My only question storywise is what the hell was that ryltock teasing for?

Yeah, that was misleading. Though we do have glimpse of what he is up to. Either his time in the Mists has given him insight as to what sylvari truly are, or he has turned cuckoo.

The plot twist was very heavily hinted at with the end of season 2, so that didn’t shock me.

Have to say that art based cinematic gets me every time however. Someone will need to post a link when it gets uploaded.

1) kittened that rytlock didn’t show up throughout the chapter

2) kittened that when rytlock finally showed up, he was wearing his old armor, and didn’t look changed at all

3) WE STILL DO NOT KITTEN KNOW WHY CAITHE TOOK THE EGG

4) Not only do we not know where Caithe went, the only people who might know, Destiny’s Edge, just went up in smoke.

5) At the very end, I could have sworn I saw a Mursaat.

So I live and breathe WvW but I still do LS because well, why not? I have to say, this was an absolutely amazingly well done finale (priory bit was a bit dull) and the ending, just wow. Can’t wait for Wooden Potatoes to cover it.

My thoughts on the Season Finale were this:

The end part is that given the fact that Sylvari are meant to be Mordremoth’s servants is confirmed is justified as to why Caithe is being very secretive. It tied up a loose end but it left one untied. In this case, why did Caithe steal the egg in the first place? Her intentions are true, but they aren’t enough in my eyes without a good justification for her actions. Though I guess she is figuring out a way to tap into the egg’s power herself.

The fight against the Shadow of the Dragon felt like a proper fight. I am disappointed that we don’t get to actually fight him as a world boss, but then again I have yet to face the Vinewrath myself so I can’t say for sure.

And the ending cutscene was kitten impressive so to speak. Least we now know for a fact that in the future, we will be facing up against more Nightmare Courtiers and perhaps confront Faolain herself once more.

Overall, I was very impressed with this finale.

So the sylvari who doesnt have pale tree are new enemy…. there will be xenophobic rebels who will be attacking good sylvari… that is interesting

WHAT IS NOT SO COOL is that Treharne used really really complex tactic – he put all his assests on one place without scouting it out first and shouted: FIRE! ………how unexpted that everyone was doomed.

Anet, You either made him totally stupid, or you just don’t see how thoughtless this attack was.

On the other hand, other parts of the this story part were great (aside from boring long killing of ghastly weapons)

This is the BEST LS they have every done so far, exploring, mysteries, action and a twist that shakes the game, well done!(but I still demand Rytlock’s new armor) I didn’t suspect all sylvaries to be dragon pawns, only the second Pale Tree but this is so much more awesome! Well, done and thank you, this was a pleasure to play through!

In short: didn’t like it at all. (warning post filled with spoilers)

- First instance was average, although a bit boring overall.

- 2nd instance was pretty bad, fight waves after waves after waves after waves of enemies is everything but ‘fun’. And in the end we just to signal an airship that kills them with a few shots? Why didn’t we signal them as soon as both gates fell? Oh right it’s a cheap way of making an instance seem longer

- 3th instance: nothing shocking happened storywise. Even after taking ages to ‘trap’ the dragon in the middle he keeps having the ‘cannot be damaged’ buff and with nothing showing up to help me change that I called it a day and decided to never bother with this patch again.

I posted this almost a year ago:

“Sylvari are originally dragon minions and supposedly belong to a certain dragon that hasn’t awoken(of course, now it has). Which is probably the reason that Sylvari cannot become risen. The reason that the Sylvari that aren’t killing machines is probably because of “The tablet at the base of the tree and the Dream of Dreams that guide the sylvari, who are imprinted by the morality and ethics of Ventari and the bravery of Ronan.”

“A Sylvari without the protection of the tablet fall under the dragons influence.”

“Scarlet was probably turned by the dragons influence when she entered the sensory deprivation chamber.”

I got flamed a lot for such blasphemous speech. Today I would like to say “Aha ha”. And thank Anet for taking a page out of my wishes.

It will be cool to see how this unfolds and can imagine a war on the Pale Tree. (Wink-Wink “Anet”)

I don’t get it. What do you mean he “cannot be damaged”? I managed to face off against him through circling him with fire and then damaging him. :/

My guess? Because with a new race, like the Sylvari, they can do so much more without worrying about messing with existing canon.

Truly an awesome story thus far. I was crying when Caithe killed Wynne. When the story touches me enough to make me shed tears, I deem it a very good story.

Seriously, bravo to the writers, and to the design team. They brought out a good season of story. It was waaaay too slow paced for my liking, but it was good none the less.

Kind of had the opposite effect on me. I’m easily touched by scenes like that but the clunky animations and facial expressions were so cringworthy :/
Aside from that, good patch. A little short, but seeing as most LS releases only last for an hour, that’s to be expected.

Was it intended that Trehearne has so frivolously sent the whole fleet out and let it get destroyed like this? How is it that this big general didn’t expect those gigantic plants rise from the ground when even I expected it?

I think Anet just wanted to make the players feel like that they are going to be in a desperate position in the expansion so they feel more excited about it.

No armada, just a bunch of heroes who first need to help Destiny’s Edge and then find Caithe. Fight armies of bad sylvari who don’t belong to the Pale Tree and work as an embassador for The Pale Tree sylvari to protect them from other races who don’t believe them anymore.

But I feel no anticipation. I’m not sure why… but I think that the story is too childish for me or something… I was not surprised at all and found it poorly thought out. Sorry for the criticism, but it is true.

Didn’t really feel like a finale, just another episode yet again existing setting up something else. Enjoyable, but I really hoped for more substance.

The Pact Assault was excellent – really showing how a game should do a battle of this scale. The final boss was good as well

The Ascension stuff was dreadful. There was no reason for Ossai or the Forgotten other than to force in GW1 lore for the sake of forcing it in. Felt really out of place (and not a patch on the original trials).

After quite a long time of lukewarm comebacks, I’m genuinely happy about this new patch.

I do hope the soundtrack appears on Soundcloud again, both the music for the golden chamber and the fight with the Shadow (which, if my ear is correct, appeared all the way back in Dragon’s reach, but I can’t find it on Soundcloud) deserve a tip of the hat and being played more often than just in the instance.

The revelation that sylvari were indeed intended to be mordrem was very interesting, though I did expect it.
However that cutscene… Wow. I thought the last cinematic for season one was amazing but this one is even better (I thought the scenes of fighting and rivalry between sylvari and others was good and I knew It would be good after rytlock’s ’don’t trust sylvari, they blong to the dragon now’) I can help but think this was advertising an expansion.

It was kind of a letdown for me. After wading me way through a bunch of trashmob time sink fights, it just ended with another “to be continued” sign. The sylvari theory was well-known for a while now too, so it didn’t come as a surprise.

I just wish there would’ve actually been some conclusion.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this update and it set up for what is to come quite perfectly. Not to mention a lot of implications lore/race wise in not jsut the story, but the very well done ending cinematics as well.

I feel like my idea that Living World would be a bridge between Personal Story and the next big expansion or expansion-esque release seems almost validated at this point. My only complaint is the 2 1/2 years for that bridge to be formed.

Frankly I have not been this positively excited since before this game released.

So… Uh… Do airship cannons and explosions have friendly fire mode on or something? How exactly did that Michael Bay scene cause everyone but the Mordrem to die, yet leave everyone else alive and intact? I’m pretty sure in the original campaign there were scenes where npcs were killed by friendly fire… If there was one more part of that battle, say everyone were to “Alamo” into the armory hanger before the bombs fell, that would make better sense…

SPOILERS If you haven’t finished the latest episode yet, stop reading, there be spoilers ahead.

During the end cinematic of the latest episode, we can see a lot of sylvari going completely crazy and attack the pact. Including lionguard and pact members.
This is shown once again in the cinematic that follows immediately after.

Now I wonder if this will affect our Sylvari player characters. And if so, how?
While I doubt our Sylvari PC’s would go crazy and join Mordremoth, I really hope there will be at least some effects. Maybe hearing soft whispers from time to time or some graphical effects on the edge of the screen. Or simply being treated differently, like we saw happening to Canach.

I hope that there is at least something. It would be weird and disappointing if our player characters (and caithe/trahearne) are completely free of corruption for no reason other than plot convenience.
