    I had a good time linking my friend concept art of the dragons and giving him some background lore. He was impressed by it, it seemed.

    Edited:
    Oh god, pageking. Have this concept art of a dragon that is obviously done by ArenaNet and nobody else.

    So, if all the dragon concept art is real, how will players be able to fight kilometer long/tall dragons?

    With a greatsword made out of super light metal so that it is still wieldable at 10km long.

    kotaki drew an incredible concept for zhaitan, a dragon made from many other dragons
    so the massive one that we gotta kill is actually made from loads of smaller dragons

    do we have enough magic?

    I'm going to be streaming the game when the BWE starts. Check out http://www.twitch.tv/axe_cop this weekend to watch me playing the game. I might take requests too (but nothing too time-consuming, I want to play the game too!)
    Oh, you're Axe Cop? Neat.

    Also, am I the only person who's just gonna wait for Anet to send me the download for the client? It's not like I'll get to play sooner if I download it sooner. So long as they give me more than a day to do the download, of course.

    This download is so fast. Thought it was going to be much slower than this.
    I'm sure it'll be slower when the client is released and everyone is downloading it.

    Me+ a bunch of friends are going to meet up to play the beta, so it's handy to have it downloaded in advance so we don't all hog the connection at someone's house.

    Yeah that's why I want to get the bulk of the data before they release the client when millions of people try downloading it at the same time! Then all I have to do is wait for it to patch up a few megs.

    You guys are persuading me to download it now, rather than waiting for the official client download link...

    Fuck it, don't want to risk implications that might arise when everyone is downloading at the same time.

    That's strange, it seems to be reporting the wrong speeds for me. Based on how long it's taken to download 1.8Gigs, Netlimiter seems to be reporting the right speed.



    Both are in MB/sec. The downloader for the last beta worked fine, so might be a bit of a glitch with this new one.

    Time to listen to the login screen in slight disappointment.
