Changed the title due to their being a absolutely huge difference between a promise and an intention.
Around this time last year, Arenanet posted this blog post telling us about all awesome and wonderful things they will be implementing before the end of 2013, I’m not here to flame Arenanet, but it’s been 6 months since the end of 2013, and still a lot of things that we were told we would be getting still aren’t here.
This is a list of all the things we were told would be implemented in 2013 that haven’t been put into the game yet, all things outside of the brackets are direct quotes from the blog post, I added in the bold:
- “We’ll begin regularly adding new skills and traits to the game for each profession to expand your characters and builds!” (We’ve only had 1 healing skill added for each profession, and only 5 new traits for each profession.)
- “We’ll expand all crafting professions to allow them to reach a new milestone: 500 points!” (Well, they must have meant all but jeweler and cooking).
- “We aren’t quite ready to go into all the details here, but what I can say is you will see a specific way to build precursor items on your way to a legendary.” (Yeah, this never happened).
- “On top of this, you’ll also see new legendary weapons and new types of legendary gear in 2013.” (This definitely didn’t happen).
I’m not here to complain or demand my rights or something, I’m just here to point out the facts, it’s been 6 months since this stuff was meant to come out and we haven’t heard a single word on it. I remember leading up to the final patches of last year, getting excited because I knew that new legendaries would be coming out soon, and then patch after patch slipped by, and nothing. That was over half a year ago, and we haven’t heard anything, no ETA, no apology, nothing. I’m disappointed.
