Considering Zantai's aversion to them I certainly hope not. I think the team are going to make it as interesting as they can - as per usual.

This talk about deserts is reminding me of FF12.

No new player models
New animations, possibly
Meet loading screen girl ingame, possibly
Dual shields - no. Anything that needs a new animation set - not happening.
No WASD
Not adding a higher rarity of items
Probably a new superboss
Expansion has an Eldritch theme
Means jack shit. But we will see.
Are they using the same old, incredibly lame excuse with muh camera again? They propably are.
So it's either devotions or item skills then? Both would be disappointing, so here's hoping it's actually something meaningful.
Predictable, current weapon types are sufficient, anyway.
Predictable as well.
Considering it has already being developed + the release date, it's understandable.
I really don't know why people are so hyped about meeting her in-game.
Laziness.
This is a good thing, adding more tiers would turn GD into a clusterfuck at this point.

The new game mode is an enigma

It's not a lame excuse, I have played map mods and screwed around in editor a little. That camera angle is definitely hard to work with. And you really can't simply tell people "Look we know the first 6 acts you played with the default angle but for this act just rotate it a little"
The best they can do for old grove is to add a massive dungeon. This way the camera angle won't be an issue. It's just a small patch of area you explore uninterrupted by anything and then you get to a door that leads to a massive labyrinth
The thing that pisses me off about that area is we have a broken bridge and a sign board leading towards that area. I hope they consider removing those

As for the girl, I am not interested in meeting her because she's on the loading screen but rather because she is an aetherial. If we get dialogues with her it's more insight into the aetherials among other things. The Circle of Five interests me

The rest of your reply is a little hard to figure out. I do disagree about weapons, while we have support for most build types. We still could use support for Pierce and Pierce/Bleed hybrids.
We also could use additional Vitality Decay and Bleed Caster support.

Nothing wrong with expressing personal opinions imo

Consider removing that sign board. It puts an end to speculations

Not sure where you got that this character's an Aetherial.

The only people speculating are those that were around during the beta and/or heard snippets about that area. Seems silly to purge evidence of a larger world because some people can't help but wonder when they'll go there.

*sigh*
At this point nothing surprises me
I hope she's a witch

Pretty sure anyone who played the game and saw the sign has speculated about the "when"

I wasn't around from the beta days but Old Grove was my first guess for an expansion when I had finished the game. Of course my prediction changed once I joined the forums

The glowing green eyes make it suspicious.

Personally, too much teasing. That bridge is like an eyesore that begs to be plucked out. My autistic completionist nature speaks about it all the time, but that's just me. And frankly, I don't like this excuse too... for many reasons.
Calm down, Big Z, I simply expressed myself poorly, as this was an attempt to employ a friendly sarcasm, but since I don't use emoticons, it turned out like this. Keep yer work, man.

Btw are we getting any UI changes? Specifically related to the blacksmith?
