That armor looks kinda cool, otherwise the environment in the screenshots look pretty meh. I'm sure you guys were stuck to a very small area and everything but I was expecting more lush and green. There better be lots of lush green in HoT like in maguuma jungle past. The Maguuma jungle in gw1 was probably one of my favorite places in all of the game. (Aside from  the whole of cantha)
It was very small indeed, but it left me feeling like I was at least on the outskirts of a jungle. I suspect there will be (a lot) more green once the map opens up.

Also, the player character now has actual voiced lines in-game. I don't know why I'm so pleased by this, but I am.

Also also, the revenant is pretty cool, even if the armor is so edgy I cut myself just by looking at it.

If you look at the videos theres a place with tree houses and such...I don't think I took a screenshot...but there was a place in the stress test with Pocket Raptors...waterfall and a little more vegetation and it seemed there was a like prehistoric creature...mackodonos...the one with a ball spike on its tail and low to the ground dinosaurus.

Of course the stress test just turned out to be the demo made live so I really don't care so much about it anymore, but my initial reaction of "NO NO NO" was still very much present when I first found out that literally half of my guild and contacts list got access and I didn't.

Like i am sure you are all aware now, if you missed the stress test, you missed nothing. Quite disappointing, i think i was typing to whispers the whole time when people saw the name i chose thus i was dependent on many rez's (mostly by khal , thanks btw) more than I was playing. But hell, i didn't understand half of what i was hitting on the revenant anyway because the skill description was longer than the gideon's bible.
Just looks like same ol stuff with one new class with flashy skills (more impressive visually). I hope wvw changes are way way way more impressive. If not, got an account for sale :)  $500.00  6 legendaries, multiple ascendant sets for all armor types 11 80's.

I would like the areas you're talking about are south of where this zone is. Verdant Brink is currently in between Silverwaste and Dry Top. Using This Map (His map is a huge file btw) , you can see sort of where we are. We're closer to Bloodstone Fen and other areas that were (in my opinion) were relatively barren unless you were down in a canyon. Tarnished Coast / Sparkfly are still relatively lush like you think. Then again it's been 250 years since those days too.

I have to admit, I'm a little puzzled about why so many people (here and on the official forum) seem so disappointed. It was billed as a stress test; why would you go in expecting loads of content?

Apparently Liric has gotten as well. Gl to you all and remember it's free to brag about everything you see. Though I have a  feeling their limiting you to just what the demo had so far.

I didn't get in either though :dodgy:
