Lots of new content to sift through.
The update is framed around a celebration commemorating Queen Jennah’s decade long rule of Kryta and features a multitude of new events, awards and permanent features.
Said features include the addition of a free wallet for currency and tokens to free up valuable inventory slots, solo arena-based PvP, bonus loot bags for killing Champion class enemies, a mini-game rotation system in Lion’s Arch, a new effects system which automatically lightens graphics card load during more chaotic battles, and the ability for players to assign permanent finishers to any of their characters.
Along with these improvements, this update will also introduce a wave-based boss mode dubbed the Queen’s Gauntlet, a new combat-zone named Crown Pavilion, a special race event involving players igniting beacons before fellow competitors do the same, a special opening ceremony event attended by Queen Jennah herself, and hot air balloons to ferry explorers far and wide to Divinity’s Reach and the festivities described.
On the loot front, there’s a new Watchknight mini-pet to earn if you complete all the meta achievements associated with this update, and there’s also a bunch of new recipes associated with watchwork tech to research and carry out.
As you can see it’s a pretty bulky update, so it isn’t surprising that ArenaNet are framing it around such a momentous occasion in the Guild Wars 2 fiction.
