END OF DRAGONS gets full trailer and tons of awesome reveals – GeekTyrant
First off, in this trailer, I get Major Kuvira (from The legend of Korra) vibrations of the main person that we see which I believe is expressed by Erika Ishii. Ishii joins the voice cast with Noshir Dalal, Ry chase, Rina hoshino, Tina Huang, and Sarah sokolovic. This is going to be so awesome!
Probably the most exciting addition to the game is the new Siege Turtle mount. This will be the game’s first multiplayer mount (note that it is “first” and not “only”) and will allow you and a friend to travel together on a giant tortoise ready to demolish a fortress. Your friend doesn’t even need to have unlocked mounts to ride with them. It’s going to be amazing for people who bring friends into the game. Other additions include skiffs which are vehicles that allow you to go out on the water and do things like the new activity which is fishing. However, fishing will not be exclusive to Cantha. There will be fishing all over Tyria after End of the dragons spear.
There will also be new elite specializations, the first being Virtuoso for Mesmers. More information will be revealed ahead of several weeklong betas that run from August through November, with the first taking place on August 17. These beta events will be available to everyone who logs in. Just create a new character during the beta period. to access the new Elite specifications.
For even more content, there will be 5 new masteries including Fishing, Siege Turtles and Skiffs. There will also be a 3rd generation of legendary weapons inspired by Aurene. The forerunners will be inspired by baby Aurene while the final versions will look like the adult version of the dragon as we know it. There will even be new strike missions and challenge modes are introduced for new strikes.
We also know that End of Dragons will update the game engine from DX9 to DX11, which has a lot of potential to improve game performance and graphics on many modern computers. It’s a very exciting upgrade that fans are clamoring for.
Fans can pre-order End of the dragons now for as low as $ 29.99 and get bonus items like a Flame Serpent Weapon Chest, Shing Jea Mosaic Cloak and the Prodigy of Shing Jea title, plus a shared inventory slot and a level 80 boost.

Finally, you can now pre-order a stunning Aurene Sculpture from Guild Wars 2 for $ 120. Can’t wait to be in February!
