I’m actually disappointed at this news… I’d rather they push it back a couple weeks, give us a better product AND not screw us out of what is traditionally everyone’s favorite GW2 holiday… Halloween 🙁

Pushing it back two weeks would mean competing with one of the biggest game releases of the year in the form of Fallout 4, it would be a terrible decision business-wise.

Now if the date is accurate… are we going to hear Mad King Thorn’s puns and jokes relating to the new HoT expansion?

Was meant as a joke and play on words with Thorn and Thorns. I wasn’t being serious about the question. 😛

I don’t see us being given Halloween with the expansion. They wouldn’t have anyone playing it for a start, and they would want to make those who haven’t purchased the expansion be “jealous” of those who have.

I was saying that as a joke. I also don’t think we’ll get Halloween, but the first time I heard the name “Heart of Thorns” I was confused for a moment because the only Thorn I know is Halloween’s king…

Just a joke: look that image I like Charr and love Sylvari a Plant-like Charr (Sylvacharr/Charrvari ?) woulb be nice =D

that’s true, it is the new Rytlock,
with the Revenant armor and the elite specialization gloves 😀

I didnt play the beta like most people so I’m one of the people who are still excited to play this, and to test the new classes after its release on my ACTUAL characters and not beta characters. So yeah glad i didnt play beta and ruin all the stuff before it actually is released

Yeah you are right ! I didnt play any beta also and almost didnt read news because in my opinion it is big spoiler i want to discover everything by myslef thats funny not jumping into game about you know almost everything.

Yeah but they didn’t release a lot of content anyways in the beta. The only map was Verdant Brink because they didn’t want to give away the whole thing. So it still is slightly a mystery to the beta players.

Which leaves about two weeks to finish all the new content before Fallout 4 comes out? Should be enough time.

The same day Assassin’s Creed Syndicate comes out for Xbox/PS4 (PC is Nov. 19th), and 4 days before Star Wars: Knights of the Fallen Empire. Whew….crazy amount of content coming.
