|Call me cute and my golem will rip your arms off.|
|See, pyramid-like cube structures.|
As I wandered around Metrica Province I came across an NPC golem battle. Right here is a great reason to love the Asura - MECHA BATTLES. The ref starts out saying, "I'm not expecting a fair fight gentlemen, so don't disappoint me." The Golems actually fight, there is a winner/loser and the winner goes of gloating. I wonder if the winners change through a dynamic event or just random selection. Either way, this is just another one of those great touches ANet has added to enrich the "alive' feeling of the area.
Snark Master GeneralWhat a delicious cut-down!
There was another big surprise toward the end of the intro area - Mr Sparkles! I remember reading about him in Mr. Sparkles, A Tale of the Asura. I read that story to my boys and they loved it. So when I'm playing in the beta and see him I had to call my boys to see it. We thought it was a pretty awesome rendition and yes, Mr Sparkles kicks some serious "behind."
Categorized MiscellaneaArena Net has hit a home run with this race. I will be playing the Asura and I will be having a blast with them. Please enjoy the following screenshots of some of the amusing things I found. Oh and the Hylek really do try to catch flies.
|Progeny. Not children mind you but Progeny.|
|Mr Sparkles incarnate.|
|Yes, that is the Hylek's tongue and he likes glowbugs.|
|You can tell it's a "bad guy's" 'cause it's red.|
|Mesmer with clones and a phantasm.|
