Guild Wars 2 to Receive a New Playable Race Named Tengu

Guild Wars 2 to Receive a New Playable Race Named Tengu

Postby 1048jack » Fri Apr 04, 2014 3:51 am

Guild Wars 2 will receive a new patch named Rise of the Tengu soon. A new race named Tengu will be introduced along with the patch. In addition, it will add a new weapon set, increased level cap, two new zones and some other new content to the game.


This expansion will fully feature the Tengu race and show all the trials they have faced within the Dominion of Winds and in their home map the Aerie. While no date has been set it has been announced that we can expect to see it sometime before the next year.

WTF really? I don't believe it. If they raised the levels of the monsters for future zones that would be nice, if they are doing the characters, I might consider leaving the game.

I thought they promised in 2010 or 2011 ...

Though in 2012 they said here they might:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012- ... loot-grind

"I hope we've been clear that GW2 is not a game with virtually no stat progression in it like GW1 was," ArenaNet co-founder and boss Mike O'Brien wrote on Reddit. "That's why GW2 shipped with a higher level cap, and with a hard separation between PVE and PVP.

"In GW1 we never advanced the level cap through four campaigns/expansions. The game design didn't allow for it. But GW2 was designed without those restrictions, and we've always expected that we will someday raise the level cap in GW2."

Tengu are those bird guys you see from time to time, they are not entirely new.

Tengu used to stand at a door in LA before the invasion, they were there since the game launched.

I am not sure if I will keep playing if the max level goes up. I have been working on ascended gear and weapons for my characters, and if they are no longer the strongest items in the game, I don't think I want to play anymore. This game already takes up too much of my time, and new gear to grind, beyond ascended is just too hard core for me.

I found this article
Written on APRIL 1
http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comm ... expansion/

Guild Wars 2: Rise of the Tengu
Hello everybody!
I’m very proud to reveal the very first paid mini expansion to you all - Guild Wars 2: Rise of the Tengu is set to be released in the second half of this year!
A very big thank you to anonymous beta tester /u/ash-hattman for revealing all this stuff to me over the past weeks. He even managed to capture some screenshots, send me a couple of the string files and even got me some audio. For now the information is a bit sparse but expect more stuff like the story to be leaked later!
Features
The Quaggan have shown their true face, cast aside by the human gods over a thousand years ago they’ve sworn to take revenge on them and their worshipers. With the recent outburst of dragon magic they’ve started to summon their saviors back into the world of Tyria once and for all.
Join up with the proud Tengu and stop the bloodthirsty Quaggan from sacrificing more innocent civilians. Are you in time to stop the White Mantle and Mursaat from taking over Tyria once and for all?
Two exclusive new zones: Temple of Tolerance and the Aerie!
An exclusive level 90 dungeon!
Create a playable Tengu!
Level up to 90!
Wield polearms!
Completely reworked underwater combat system for PvP!
100% Underwater PvP map - the Fall of Abbadon!
And much more!
Temple of Tolerance
The Quaggan have shown their true nature and are trying to bring back the Mursaat into this world. Join up with the Tengu to put a hold to their plans and fight for the freedom of Tyria! This zone has 3 new World bosses that spawn every 30 minutes, defeating these bosses (and the new dungeon) will be the only way to gather new Legendary materials.
In this zone you’ll also find diary entries made by Tsuru Whitewing who has witnessed the return of the Mursaat to Tyria. Gather all of them for an achievement.
Loading screen (1920x1080)

Listen to Tsuru Whitewing’s diary (01:55)
The zone has multiple sections:
Songfeather's Forest: A dark forest in which the Quaggan perform blood sacrifices to summon Mursaat
Temple Ruins: The main stronghold of the Mursaat
Bloomanoo Village: The main town of the Quaggan led by Bloomanoo
Mirror Lake: The last outpost of the white mantle
Heart of Primordus: Magic is bursting out of the crust of the earth after Scarlet hit the layline in Lion's Arch
The Aerie
The main city of the Tengu, in the current alpha version it's impossible to enter the zone. Developers described it as being a vertical map like the grove only much higher.
Tengu
The Tengu are an avian race, they’ve secluded themselves from the rest of the World, but now the Quaggan have shown their true evil nature their homeland is being overrun by Mursaat.
Character creation - selected
Character creation - deselected
Screenshot of a playable Tengu in the Temple of Tolerance
Miscellaneous info about the Tengu:
To save lot of time the Tengu won’t have any personal story to worry about
After a short introduction you’ll be automatically leveled to 80.
You will need to buy a special character slot (about twice the price of a regular slot) if you want to play as a Tengu
In the current Alpha version you can not customize your looks
Polearms
You will now be able to wield polearms. These will only drop in the Dominion of winds and require a 15 gold unlock for each character. In the current beta version only mesmers are able to wield polearms:
