I like pretty much everything about those new changes, and I mostly like “Release the button to cast”
Hovewer, I expected that there will be templates on builds (on traits expecially, so I can switch them – maybe switching between trait books I bought)
And I expected more, new skills and traits.
While Meteorlogicus is stowed at night, there are merged its effects – you can see the night glowing and also the day glowing, there is a trail, which is much bigger than it was (I suppose its a merged trail from day and night). This is probably comfirmed by the fact that weapon doesnt glow during the day. When you pull out the weapon, the bug is gone, but there is still not trail.
80 Ele – 1665 hours, 3354 deaths
I also need to know if Meteorlogicus is bugged, because the trail can be seen when you log in at night, but when u attack it disappears!
Are you kidding me? Bifrost just got an update to it’s foosteps.
You need to raise your graphics level or something, cause they’re pretty bright.
You are blinded? He told he set the graphics to max.
..Agree with OP, they are so short and unvisible in comparison with over effected dreamer.
Here is a pic of the trail in action from the new update. It happens when you keep it sheathed at night. Don’t tell me why it does this, but its apart of the glitches the updated meteorlogicus has.
This looks so lovely really.. Always when I teleport somewhere at night, I keep the weapons sheathed and with tears in my eyes, I watch the bugged Meteorloicus with the beautiful trail. After a minute I go do what I wanted.. I do it EVERY SINGLE TIME and Im just hoping that they will fix it and add back the trail for ever!! …
I need the trail back!
Its a legendary. Its just a very expensive item, and its not for everyone. The good thing is you dont need it; you can craft ascended and have the same stats as legendaries. Or you can play game without farming and after months (maybe lots) get your Sunrise.
So this was moved to the suggestions forum?
Does this suggest that these aren’t bugs and the way the weapon is currently functioning is really WAI?
Would be really, really lovely if we could know.
Exactly. I NEED to know if the disappering trail is just a bug (because it is visible if you log in during the night). And if it is, I want to know if they are working on it!
Sorry, search feature is not good, so I decided to post it here.
Tequatl Revamp, looks like we got a challenge on our hands.
I prefer to call it a failure-fest. It better captures the essence of the experience. Challenge is a completely different experience in my vocabulary.
Teq will follow in the mold of Grenth and the Karka Queen. There will be some initial interest if the reward is high enough, then it will simply empty that part of open world PvE. Humans are not built for continual, near-assured failure—we tend to want to avoid failure on anything near an epic scale.
Yeah, the problem here is:
- If the reward is good, this is going to be a zerg party without the challange ruined by the zerg.
- If the reward is not good, It’s going to be ruined by the fact that no one does it.
That’s a big problem of Gw2: There are challanges, but are just ignored because the reward is less than farming events.
On the other hand, I hope the reward will be bad, so we can use the event as a sort of guild raid.
The rewards should include new ascended weapon skins related to Tequatl and Miniature Tequatl
It should be from beggining. One handed legendaris have also half effects(meteorlogicus, fsp…)
Personally, though, I love everything about the new Meteorlogicus, but I think it would be awesome if Anet gave player’s more options to customize their legendary.
So you love that it has no longer the trail?
Actually I cant wait fot this! When i first fought the dragons I was waiting for huge, hard and long fights but it wasnt like that. but now this gives me hopes for that challenging fight I was waiting for! And MINI TEQUATL? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Everyone has this bug. It happens everytime when you log in while at night. In this occasion, the night (purple) and day (blue) glowings are merged and you can also see the trail. But when u pull out your weapons, the bug gets lost; the weapon now glows just purple and the trail disappears.
we need the TRAIL and the GLOWING while stowed back!
It would be better if elemental projectile models and textures would remain same as normal, and the projectiles would just have a rainbow trail.
No, other people dont see them. There are many thieves with incinerator and the footsteps were always invizible for enemies, so dont worry:)
The footsteps arent bad, I like lightning, but im very sad that trail is gone. The night/day cycle isnt very impressive at all. It would be much better if it had more effects like an aura.
The video now works
So its true, it wasnt a bug in their video; Meteorlogicus really has no longer its trail. You can see it on this video:
Some of us have been yearning for these changes for nearly a year now. And I have to thank Anet for listening to the public. As the new changes are perfect in every way. For the people complaining about the lightning footsteps don’t match.. Are you kidding. The precursor is called -storm- and it uses 100 charged lodestones to make it. Think before you write. So yes, the footsteps DO match the Meteorlogicus.
There is no one saying that lightning footsteps are bad, I actually love that..but remove another effect, the blue purple trail, is such an injustice!:(
No thanks. As a WvW and PvP player, I already have to keep tabs on what every animation means and how to adapt to them. They allow me to read peoples builds, skills, cooldowns, possible combos, playstyle, etc etc etc. More animations would just mean unnecessary annoyance for those of us who fight other players and not PvE mobs.
Maybe they could be limited to PvE only.
Or there would just be an option to turn off these effects.
The Dreamer. You cant unhear it when it shoots, you cant unsee the unicorns and rainbows everywhere. One of the most noticeable weapons, and it still gets an upgrade? wtf? Look at flameseeker, it has ONE effect – glowing! And it gets NO uprade? Same as Meteorlogicus – it may get footsteps, but they removed the trail? why?? Dreamer is full of noticeable effects and still gets an upgrade while other weapons cant? So why are they obtainable the same hard way? They are even more expensive!
It seems that they dont like some legendaries and they dont want to update them to better, while other legendaries are still getting more updates… this sucks hardly, since all legendaries are hard to craft in a same way. Those legendaries which has less effects than other should be much cheaper and easier to craft, atleast! kitten this is so unfair…
Meteorlogicus still looks poor as hell. They removed the trail omg why?? I loved it very much! I was hoping it will gain MORE effects than just footsteps, like spell effects! For example Dragon tooth which would look like it is dropping from a cloud (silly idea but you know what I mean), better arc lightning effect or something noticeable.. Its still very innoticeable weapon! Look at Dreamer, even blind person can see those ponies everywhere, Twilight huge trails…
kitten , Anet just dont like Meteorlogicus for sure…
Or maybe they will suprise us and wont tell us all the effects they want to add?
This is the same thing as wardrobe https://forum-en.gw2archive.eu/forum/game/suggestions/Why-Skin-Wardrobe-should-be-a-high-priority/page/6#post2574743
Yeah, I have that helmet with Meteorlogius too, + glowing blue on my bracers, you can see on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4qA7Z2VqcY
But still, i like the purple too. It would be really good if we could choose the colour. As I said above, ability to dye weapons, at least legendarys, would be super awesome. Everyone with a legendary could have his unique coloured legendary!
Oh god, i love that new purple meteorlogicus! but I know how do you feel; you crafted meteorloicus because it was blue and you liked it.
Simple solution for this: let us DYE WEAPONS!
This is totally true! When you enter Divinity, the first playing song is always its theme and thats very fine. Actually when Im entering that city, I know I will hear that song and Im “ready” for that great song. Sadly I cant say that about Grove and Rata.
I didnt mean to kill the elder dragons now. I just want to see that they are here. Like an Icebrood invasion from Far Shiverpeaks, or destroyers attacking from new small fissures around the world. Not events with pirates, but events with dragon minions. And time by time, some new dragon lietuants or champions (I would really like to see Drakkar!)
When Guild wars 2 was released, I was really interested in the dragons. I love GW lore and when I read those elder dragon awakenings, I was really excited about these epic creatures. A logo is a dragon, in trailer there is a dragon, the world changed because of dragons.
Actually I thought living stories will be about the dragons. When I heard about Flame and Frost, I totally thought that is a sign of Jormag and Primordus. Or those karkas. Deep sea dragon minions? But it was not true, sadly for me.
It looks like Arenanet forgot that the main story concept of Guild Wars 2 were elder dragons, there is nothing new about them! The game is one year old and elder dragons dont care about us? Its a shame, I was realy excited about them, but we are just getting pirates. they rather could be dragon minions, lead by new dragon champions!
Thanks a lot for these foundings:)
I must say, these composers are awesome! Southsun Cove theme, Winersday songs..and everything, I just love the new music! Im glad that I know them now and can look forward their new songs:)
Since I heard that Jeremy Soule will no more compose for GW2 (which was a sad message to me), I wonder who composed theme song for Labyrinthine cliffs, Zephyrite race song, oh, and Dragon Bash theme, which played in character menu.
Anyone knows the composer? Because these songs are great, It wont be really a tragedy that Soule left after all!
Yes, some effects please. Meteorlogicus is a legendary which isnt noticeable very much! It just leaves a trail, but that trail is short and not really noticeable…
I really enjoy playing scepter on my elementalist, so I really want to have a legendary scepter. I have all materials for Meteorlogicus ready, but I still havent crafted it – Im waiting for its update, OR a new legendary scepter, because I want a legendary sceper that has legendary effects!
I agree with prenavo.
All types of weapons should have at least two legendaries, exactly like Twilight and Sunrise. Some people prefer dark, “evil” weapons (Twilight) and some light, “good” (Sunrise), so they can choose between those greatswords. Thats good! But why just those greatswords have 2 versions? People who like darker weapons and are using staff, for example, they just cant choose and they just “have to” create The bifrost. And what I mean with “they have to” is fact that people are creating legendaries because its some sort of goal in this game, not because of its look. Everyone knows that legendary weapon takes some time to get. So it doesnt matter how the weapon looks, but that the weapon has a LEGENDARY status. – I know many people who hate rainbows, unicorns and still created The Dreamer, because it is the only legendary shortbow. THE ONLY. Same issue like many necros have created The Birost, and they know it totally does not fit with their dark character.
If there were 2 legendary weapons of each type, just like GSs, you could show more personality of your character and tune it up with your style!
Jeremy Soule will no more compose for GW2? and do you know who is their composer now? Really need to know this…
Haha! When I first heard those announcers, I said myself: oh, they sound like Twilight Sparkle, lol. And now I see I was right, more lol!
Its so sad that dev guys arent replying to this most liked thread:/
there were plenty of these topics (i created the same months ago) and all of them were always “forgotten”.
Its a great idea, and I mainly agree with the night. It is really hard to notice it is night since it looks like its a regular day. The sky should be a lot darker and so everything should be.
…I really miss Hardmode from original GW
this his great idea
I need this so badly
yeah, very disappointing that hands disappeared.
Im suprised its 7 months old and still no feedback from guys from Anet. Is such a great idea and everyone would have a big game goal – to collect skins! All dungeons would be played again to have token skins…omg thats a work for years!
Amazingly great idea. Full support! I really want to play just with my armor set, but if I want to change build (stats), I cant play with that armor anymore – I just need to farm the different stats armor in COF. Yes, you can transmute the stats, but I would maybe want to switch to old build ahgain,which again means farming of that build and transmuting. Because this is too complicate, thats why anyone is wearing cof armor and not armor they would like to wear.
Looks like a great fun!
anoher thing I dont like very much is that Radiant/hellfire looks like they are for warriors only. I cant imagine how stupidly must elementalist look with those hulky pauldrons and helm. They just look like heavy armor.
