    LOL, look at the coment section, they think that this is an end game dungeon, saying it looks too easy, and the telegraph system is not unique, and that the Mechanics are dull/boring. As if they did not listen to the speaker, say this is probably the first dungeon people will do. Like it is fun to hate on every new mmorpg.

    To be fair on them, the title does say "raiding", so they may assume that this is a raid despite what the commentator said in the video. Also, while there are telegraphs that encourage running, the bosses aren't really doing much, granted they are casters, but they could at least seem more "interactive".

    But at a beginning dungeon, the first at that, would that be a bit too much of a learning curve to get people into the way the dungeons are done in this game. This was to introduce moving and complex telegraphs and CC resist armor. Like any good game, the game will grow in challenge zelda, mario, super meat boy, and other highly rated games typically do not throw all the mechanics at you from the start. I'm sure bosses will be much more mobile in the 30+ range of leveling.

    This info seems to just be the German version of a few other lists/ known facts, just compiled for the German audience for Gamescon.
    Disclaimer I only took one year of German freshmen year of highschool, but you don't really need to know German to read this list.
    1) Open beta planned for at least 1 month before the 2014 spring release.
    2) 1-50 should take 150 hours, in closed beta it is currently taking 250 hours.
    3) Jeremy Gaffney noted that flying mounts will most likely be in wildstar, most likely not on release.
    4) Spectator mode for PvP.
    5)C.R.E.D.D. system, and something about ze free market.
    6) 60% of MMO players, play solo, so there will be a lot of solo content to keep these players active.
    7) flasks and trinkets for raid buffs, including PvP.
    8) Talking about pre-order stuff.
    9) The optional De-leveling system.
    10) Crafting, not much details beyond maybe stating profession names.
    11) no idea.

    Basically, if they want me to be happy, they must reveal something uber tomorrow! Because why show a granok with a rifle and a mechari with these weird things if it has nothing to do with what really is being talked about.

    That might be true, but it would be a <REDACTED>ty thing to do to European gamers. From Frost's interview with IGN the other day I was expecting the remaining two classes to be playable at Gamescom.

    Wishful thinking on my part? Maybe. Think how put off you would be if you took the time, cost, etc. to attend a convention only for the really exciting stuff to happen at another convention held less than a week later.

    Something smells fishy, and for once it's not a half-eaten Aurin from the Draken gladiatorial pits.

    Thank you for the bizarre, humorous, and delightfully macabre saying.

    Gamescom is over and the results are... underwhelming.

    We got: CC video, low quality housing video, high quality video of a dungeon we've already seen and a couple gameplay videos in zones we've already seen.

    I really hoped for class reveals or at least to see more HD gameplay videos.

    Hey, I don't mind, as long as there's some gameplay!
    I hope longer videos will start flowing the next few days, now that Gamescom's over. But even if not, PAX in a few days. One can hope for more hawt gameplay! (And needless to say, reveals... ;D)
