The Infiniraririrrirum — ium — landed in cities across Tyria this week, bringing festivities and fun as well as a terrifying presence in the sky that makes Godzilla look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Seriously, how unnerving is that airship?
Onto the content itself, just what has WintersDay wrought on the major cities? Lion’s Arch looks phenomenal but the other racial capitals are comparatively untouched. Is this a disappointment? Or, considering the incredible transformation to come to Lion’s Arch, is it completely understandable? We discuss the pros and cons.
Black Lion Chests get a nice overhaul. Permanent quality of life items can now be sold for a tidy profit on the Trading Post and the chances of getting something worthwhile are increased! It’s also less likely for you to get yet another tonic! Is it all good news or can our team of humbugs find something to whinge about?
Underwater combat is improved in the latest round of patch note goodness. Engineers do a dance of joy at the change to sigils, throwing their grenades out in celebration — until they notice their bang is 30% less noisy. We discuss the changes that have been implemented including the reasons for locking in weapons in sPvP. Richie might have sniffed out something that could prove good news for those awaiting eSports functionality.
Add your questions on WintersDay and the gang have their hands full. Fortunately, they came dressed for hard labor.
**EDIT** Gary had the day of the RIFT one day sale a bit confused. It was not as he though, on the 19th of Dec, but is going on right now — Dec 20th.
