Guild Wars 2... I love the desert maps. Well, most of them anyway. The Elon river valley and estuary area is gorgeous in-game. My little Asura engineer gliding upstream on his skimmer mount (effectively a "hovercraft")

Mrs Fortune smiled at me this evening! Within minutes, I ran into two menagerie goblins, so I have now had the opportunity to take two more pets for a spin:

 

Phantom Hannah:

-It has this disproportional left arm movement swiping over and over, like certain enemy ghosts, and this repeats itself in a short loop that got under my skin pretty quickly

-It hovers pretty neatly, but it's hard to make out most of the time. You got those brass shoulder pads and an odd headpiece tagging along, crowning a blue glowing torn sheet, which is unassuming

-It's slightly better than the Malfeasant Ghost, but that's just by a hair!

 

 

The One That Can't Be Mentioned:

-Well, it's a cow, but it's like one hundred times better than the Darkening of Tristam cow, the Cow Queen!

-Yet another pet that moves like an NPC, and it moves almost the same as the Lady Sheep pet.

-Instead of charging with a sword, it's sorta rallying my character by waving her weird spear

-It's easier to see and even more colourful, literally and figuratively, than the Lady Sheep

-Personally, I rank this, currently, as my no 4, just after the very neat Pierce Horsey

I have acquired two new pet acquaintances, and they are at both ends of my appreciation spectrum!

 

The first new one is Charlotte the spider:

J3grFG.jpg

-It moves just as bad as the Mini-Azmodan pet

-And it gets stuck everywhere, and it also has a problem of keeping up, especially when I teleport.

-It's a spider. Blargh! But it looks good in all its arachnid grandeur, even though its dark colour makes it hard to see, despite its shimmering outline

-I'd rate this just below mini-Azmodan on my previous list

 

The second new one is Lamb, the eager squire boy:

FEPh85.jpg

Here you see Lamb landing the killing blow onto Malthael at Tier XIII. Not bad, my son! Not bad at all, says Templar Dad.

-This is one of those NPC-like pets, and it's been competently programmed

-It moves better than the Cow Queen and the Lady Sheep, and it has both of their best moves: swinging the weapon, rallying with the weapon raised

-It looks beautiful on all maps, and adapts well to all lightning.

-Lamb's relatively impressive stature makes him pretty easy to see

-He runs and keeps up brilliantly, and picks up stuff decently (not like Murkomancer or the Starcraft spaceship, but still)

-I love that I get to have a little nuclear family rocking the rifts like this.

-I rate Lamb as the best pet out of all those I have at this moment in time! :)

@IndiraLightfoot - half formed golem still my favorite. The tiny calf-cow runs just fine on my ps4 version. I mean it looks a little funny because its 4 legs move at comical keystone kop speed but it looks/feels smooth. I wonder if that's a 30ish fps vs. pc-higher fps thing.

I just achieved Guardian during this D3 season (#16), and I had to check, but it's actually the first time I ever gone all the way. I've done seasons up until the stash tab reward and then stopped liek 3 times, so this tab actually made it so that I have 10 tabs in all. Very sweet! :)

 

I've had some frustrations, obviously, but overall D3 2019 is still lots of fun, viewed as a time-killing machine. Perfect escape when RL issues are a bit too intrusive for my liking.

I've ran three different wizard builds, all of them royal grandeur dependent in various ways. But my last build, a pretty standard fire meteor Tal Rasha variant, will work nicely with a full set as well when the season ends.

 

There were other firsts as well. I managed to reach lvl 80 Greater Rifts and beyond.

Also, when I reached lvl 70 GR, I got my first primal ancient item ever, a semi-decent helm.

And my second primal ancient, my first "natural" primal drop - it happened at Greed's Vault tier XIII, and, amazingly, it was one of the items I actually had on my build. Just wow!

As for the Conquests, I managed to solo the 20 min Tier X All Bosses except Vidian in-game thanks to my eternally teleporting wand set-up, but yeah, it was tight. I had 2 minutes to spare, and it was third time's the charm.

One conquest more was the last thing to do on my Guardian chore list, and I picked Tier X Nephalem rift in 2 min, since my very fast wizard build had managed a tier XIII in 3 minutes, I even got some achievement for it being 3 minutes. Still, after hours of trying it solo, I just didn't have any perfect maps, and when I did, I was always 40 seconds short. That meant I had to enter the multiplayer jungle. I lurked in T10 rifts, played for several hours, until I got into a group with one of those super-fast Demon Hunters, which runs far ahead of everybody else, even my teleporting Wizard, and then just blast bolt barrages.

So, now I get to flaunt a Guardian Season 16 Portrait Frame:

And yep, I'm still mad about the boy (Lamb), as my pet...

 

Perhaps there are differences between PS4 and PC in various ways when it comes to animation, framerates, etc. That would affect my view on the various pets quite a bit.

Would this be from the recent release on the switch? If so, how does it play?

No, it's not. I just started gaming for real until recently, so many good classic I'm yet to discover. It's PC screenshots.

A bit of background story for the (Guild Wars 2) pictures...

The nation of Orr was once a significant human realm. The Six (human gods) lived there until they departed the world.
Left to their own devices, humans succumbed to constant internal wars and weakened themselves, so when the Charr wiped out the realm of Ascalon and headed towards Orr, the Orrians despaired and a Vizier Khilbron did a big no-no. He used one of the artifacts left behind by the six and let's just say it backfired spectacularly. Cutting a lot of stuff about who manipulated events that lead to it all. Suffice to say, the cataclysmic release of magic not only wiped out the Charr High Legions, it literally caused Orr to be swallowed by the sea and the Island realm was now part of the sea floor. Much later, the Elder Dragon, Zhaitan used similarly powerful magic to tear Orr from the sea floor and raise it, building it's lair in the ruins and commanding the hordes now undead inhabitants. it's part the reason why this area looks like it sort of belongs on the bottom of the sea.
hzp4noo.jpg

When Orr was raised, the resulting Tsunami destroyed the human capital of Kryta and the humans built a new one, somewhere far away from the coast, calling it 'Divinitys Reach'. Thrifty refugees from multiple races rebuilt in the ruins of the old city and created a new free city which is sort of the de facto capital of the world, where all races meet and ply their trade. The 5 playable races have a local capital and a shortcut gateway to this city, Lions Arch.

Anyway, Orr is still a comparatively dark and gloomy place with undead of all sizes and shapes haunting the place

Just my necromancer girl trying to strike a suitably heroic posture, fiddling around with camera angles to use the light (which isn't sunlight, just an eerie glow from a magical source)

I'm glad FFXV was made if only to give LadyCrimson screenshot fodder.

Guild Wars 2 has a number of seemingly weird (and not so weird) achievements. Besides 'Chairs of the Realm' where you have to try sitting in 42 (made up number) different chairs all over Tyria, it has a master diver achievement where you have to find both obvious and well hidden diving goggles, put them on (yes, your character actually strips down to their underwear when putting them on) and survive a dive to a spot somewhere below you. At higher levels, the dives gets harder, not just to find the goggles, but to hit the intended target. In this case, half a kilometer down at the bottom is a Greek style amphora where you have to hit the opening. Just about large enough for a character to slip through.

GW2 makes for some nice screenshots. :) I still haven't tried it, outside of a beta or something a long time ago.
