its rare kind of compound bow, they really exist. there is a mechanic build in so that they require less strength if you pull them do their fullest extend like a compound bow.

seems like a curious set of weapons just in time for the star wars craze, now if anet would just stop dancing around it and straight up give us a lightsaber…..

The pistol, rifle, warhorn, mace, hammer and greatsword all bother me. They all seem like they wouldn’t work. The Hammer and Mace seem like they would actually soften the blows considering that some of main parts are essentially floating. Idk how the rifle or pistol would shoot regular-looking shots, so I’m hoping it doesn’t, otherwise, HOW?? The warhorn.. probably makes the most sense. The plasma probably sends the sound out like electricity does for electric guitars.. The greatsword seems like it would me like the silly scimitar and bend while the outer edge of it tries to keep up with the base of the weapon moving..

Definitely unique skins though..

Pistol might work with the Engineer though, especially if you got Magitech Armor and go with a similar green for the glowy parts. Only their auto is an actual bullet with pistol, otherwise they shoot lightning/glue/fire.

Isnt the bow a bit dangerous for the owner? I mean, it wouldnt even be able to shot arrows, the arrows would melt in contact with the plasma, the hand of the user would also melt in contact with the plasma string…

The bows could have been more intelligently designed. That’s for sure. They should have had the plasma parts in the upper and lower limbs, not the string.

if you look closely in the second bow screenshot, there is a hand hold in the centre of the beam/string. Still not entirely safe though.

LIGHTSABERS! 😀 Lol. I kinda want that sword skin. I don’t have a clue what character design goes with it, but … >.>

it could also fit with magitech, since it looks similar in texturing to other magitech weapons. just gotta color your armor’s energy bits yellow.

A great example of someone using a beam of light as a blade edge. You hopefully understand though that the ranger does not use its bows as melee weapons but rather places it’s hands around the plasma string and pulls back hard – in this alleviating the need to clip nails by alleviating one of said fingers.

Ah, I see. Good catch.

Idiotic use of a high density heated particle beam but not finger destroying. It might shear off the front of your upper garb though, depending on how you draw your long bow -.-

Wish the Plasma rifle and pistol made different firing sounds. Would make it worth getting to me. An that shield look pretty dang cool, like some kinda futuristic riot shield.

The shield and longbow is nice but everything else is just fcking awful. The plasma sword is the dagger but longer. That greatsword is a shield but with a handle. Seriously, who designs this stuff? Please fire that designer. Please.

with the fantasy world’s standard, these …THINGS make no sense. Though might appeal to folks that have a thing for floating pieces – Anet greatest obsession.

gw2 is not your standard fantasy world though. its mixed with some steampunk and some… asura/charr technoligy. with laser beams shooting teq since start of the game the new skins are nothing to wonder about or to say “make no sense”.

im not a fan of the skins myself, but for other reasons.

very different. different is good.

but impractical is not. i like that theyre being creative, but not a lot of people want to wield weapons that dont look like they could do their job. so close, anet. just gotta get your mind in the right place.

Awww man i was hoping they would make a cool sound effect when drawn out and used. thats a wasted opertunity right there.

I much prefer having the cap. Star Wars lightsabers are completely nonsensical and make me sad. 🙁 These things seem relatively explainable.

guys… i dunno if you know this, but a plasma stream must be contained in order to remain a coherent beam. star wars is not a good reference material for what is realistic. having a ‘cap’ actually is more physically consistent than the end of a plasma stream terminating in space on its own. how it’s suspended there is anyone’s guess, but all kindsa stuff in gw2 floats around randomly, and i’ve never seen so much bitching about it.

also, if the plasma is contained in an electromagnetic field (likely) then in trying to touch it, you would be stopped by the electromagnetic field. it would still be pretty hot, though, probably.

I sure hope the greatsword is bugged and supposed to be more like the shield, even the icons look the same. (greatsword icon shows plasma field in middle)

Why are you all complaining that the caps make them look less like lightsabers, when it makes them look more like fucking Beam Katanas from No More Heroes!?

Just bought the plasma sword and staff. Do I wish they had thicker beams, no caps and made special sounds? Sure. I also want an X-wing fighter and Ewok mini… but that’s a different game.

agreed. there hasn’t been a good black lion set in so fucking long I don’t even care about the tickets rotting in my bank

I think some of these are some of the best weapon skins they’ve had in a while. The shield, mace, hammer, great sword, axe, and rifle.

Would say the bows are okay too, but seems odd to me that a beam of plasma would be your draw string.

Last 3 or 4 weapon sets to me have just been sad.

2 bad the staff is not like a darth maul kind of wapon, i would look awesome on my thief!
The beams could have been a little bit thicker do…

Yea…a Darth maul staff for thief i would definitely consider getting. It would fit perfectly well. Maybe even put in some SW sounds….considering thief’s moves have absolutely 0 sound feedback. He’s every move is extremely underwealming and unapealing to the eye.

wow these weapons could have been SOOOO much better… like not having a cap on the end of the sword lmao really? a lightsaber with a cap… some of them are decent tho like the mace, shield, and axe mabyy

Star Wars lightsabers are everywhere. Even the Starcraft, the Protoss have their own lightsabers colored in blue, green, and red.

GW2 started out with fine designs, but after their main artist left all all devolved into retarded shit. It’s just over the fucking top… uninstalled.
