The first living story arc is a mixed bag for me. I didn’t love it, I didn’t hate it, it was just passable. Scarlet took awhile to grow into a real villain for me, and little things that fleshed out her character, such as her journal or her hidden lair should’ve come earlier.
I pretty much agree with all of this, especially the comparison with story as presented in FFXIV. I’m also looking towards Living Story Season 2 hoping that maybe they’ve learned some things from this experiment and they can implement more permanence to the Living Story, since that seems to remain their idea for content releases.
I know many people are guessing on new areas opening up with the events in the last cut scene, and I hope for this, too. It would be a step in the right direction, IMHO.
Lion’s Arch has been battered and razed, but as long as there are those who’ll take up arms for our city, it will not be beaten! Scarlet and her armies—the Aetherblades, the Molten Alliance, and the Toxic Alliance—may have pushed us out of our city, but now the winds have blown her vile miasma out to sea. Lion’s Arch belongs to all Tyrians. It’s time to regroup and rally, liberate our besieged city, and take the fight to Scarlet to end her menace. Remember this day, for this battle will be worthy of legend!

It’s become really apparent that Anet checks everything on human first, and pretty much ignore the other races. There’s always been some serious scaling issues with asura (see the teeny tiny weapons), but with the horns/halo its really apparent. And its sloppy.
I expected the afros to be a problem, but going over this thread, it clips with almost every hairstyle. To add insult to injury its not even centered over their heads! And when its not clipping, its barely noticeable (this is a general problem with the halo, but adding in the small size just makes it worse).
I also don’t think Anet will fix it, at least not any time soon. They’ve been pretty clear that these sort of issues are a low priority, especially if they don’t affect a large portion of the userbase.
I’m about halfway to getting the selfless potion, but now I”m not so sure :\
I’m really happy that such a small side character is getting more and more prominence and actually fitting into the story so well. I’m curious what his and his dealings with Evon to heal the sick and clear out the toxin will come to (follow Heal-o-tron around, this is his plan when you put together all his dialogues).
I’m guessing that this will be in part 2 of the event, when they’re actively trying to retake Lion’s Arch and things have settled somewhat. Also, whatever happened to the Minstrel?
I haven’t seen the minstrel — maybe Heal-o-Tron will rescue him in part 2! That would be the start of an epic friendship. :)
I really enjoyed listening to the exchange between Heal-o-Tron and Evon. Interested in seeing where it’s going (and laughing at Evon being afraid of a golem uprising in the middle of all this).
Lion’s Arch is under attack! The Lionguard is scrambling to protect citizens and evacuate the city. The attack from Scarlet’s armies left Fort Marriner heavily damaged and the Gate Hub Plaza in ruins. No corner has been spared, resulting in burning destruction, toppled boat buildings, broken bridges, and scorched fields. And a deadly miasma is spreading across the city, gaining lethality until the survivors are forced to retreat. Somewhere above it all, Scarlet watches the destruction, waiting for the moment when the final step of her plan can come to fruition.
