Just got around to checking the GWD today and I have to say they did a stunning job with the place.

 

Looks truly marvelous. Very pleased with it.

Especially when it reads that Virtus drew magic from the water altar there, which was only put there when the Moonclan had discovered the altars, in the beginning of the fifth age. :s There's something wrong with the lore here...

 

No the lore is fine (on that part), you've jumped to wrong conclusion.

 

It draws from a 'magical rift' that turns out to be connected to another world and it mentions it's inhabitants.

Water altar is not a world, it is a pocket realm.

Water altar does not have inhabitants.

Altars did not even HAVE pocket realms until after the barbarians attacked destroying them and they created the realms themselves.

Altars aren't 'rifts'

 

Conversely:

Fairy rings run off a magical rift, the entrance to Zanaris uses a fairy ring (inside at least)

Zanaris is (in lore) a different world.

Zanaris has inhabitants.

 

The rift is quite clearly the Zanaris entrance.

 

Hmm, okay, didn't think of Zanaris. :P

It could actually have been the water pocket realm as you call it. I don't think the lunar people created the realms themselves, but the altars as bridges into them. I think Virtus was just so magically adept that he could traverse there without using something such as the altars.

 

On another idea... That zanaris idea is probably most likely.

In lore the Moonclan Tribe 100% did not make the pocket realms.

They made the altars at points strong with power for the various elements around the world, just like their Astral altar.

 

The altars then some how (its not made clear how) "collapsed" into their own pocket realms as a form of self preservation (leaving the original altar structure entirely useless to RC with but functional as a gateway to these realms) when the anti-magic Barbarians came and destroyed the altars. Which is why all the altars (other than astral on lunar isle) are totally destroyed but radiate a power and have pristine altar hidden away in a pocket realm that takes on characteristics of the rune energy.

 

In the lore we do not know exactly how the pocket realms came to be but we do know they formed around the altars opposed to existing before the altars.

How can anyone be surprised or outraged over the new player models? Similar ones have been present in the beta since its release. And actually, the ones in the beta are better than the ones in the live game, meaning the current ones will be improved again when EoC goes live. Assumedly EoC was intended to be ready by GWD Remastered's release, which didn't happen.

Live and beta. I don't know why beta appears larger.

Why do the male faces look normal, but the female faces they wanted to go for overly large eyes? At least the chat head avatar for females look normal.

I think part of the problem with the new faces is that they have much more obvious, better facial features, but the lack of animation makes them look like they're staring, and generally terrifying.

It's not the first time they've messed up trying to update female faces. Remember how they changed Xenia's chat head from an older woman to what looks like a guy in a wig? :?

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I also hate the fact that they made Linza, you know, that signature hero-smith looks so beautiful as a person, until you see her chathead. :s

So few discussion about the new items? Surely those new mage robes have quite a big impact, no?

 

It's kind of redundant to discuss the stats of the new items when the EoC is on its way.

Not entirely. It'll probably be a while before EoC comes out.

 

My point is, there isn't massive in depth discussion about the usefulness of each new item like there normally would be because the stats will change on them at some point anyway.

It's very simple. The new robes are 100% the best for any maging unless you desperately need the defence from Virtus or Ganodermic. Even so, boots, gloves and hood are probably always the best as their defence bonusus are small no matter what.
