Is that so?

Hmmm, if they keep up this pace it might be reasonable to expect a new race week each and every week without pause.

How much are you willing to bet that the Sylvari will be the last on the list.

@Yoh
Yes, i think the sylvari will be the last, since they probably demand the most work being a completely new race as opposed to an established one from GW1, ArenaNet is probably going to keep them for last to have more room for final touch-ups.

I can't wait for them, im really excited to see how (and if) they have changed since we saw them in the early trailers.

I bloody hope so. I was less then impressed with some of their footage of them, either looking too human, or some malformed salad.

I'm kind of wanting a more flowery look, or maybe some thorns, not so much the palm tree look.

This one is looking good too. Lets hope they get some actual paid Q/A folks and paid Alpha and Beta testers so they can do the QDR feedback restest loop these titles need. The time of fake betas and fixing what they want during stress tests need to go.

Funny ArenaNet just had a blog post about that.

Assuring Quality – QA at ArenaNet

I certainly agree with you, Betas are now more of a public viewing of a game then to find any real issues.

Sweetness! More Guild Wars 2 news is a good thing in my book! Can't wait to see more details on the races. =D
I definitely hope the open beta comes this year along with an early 2012 launch date =)

Per Regina on GW2s Twitter account @GuildWars2QC We never said that people would be getting a race per week. ;-) ~RB

We'll be seeing races, like all other content, when they are ready. I also imagine there will be a lull in race info when they go to PAC East early next month to focus on info about that instead.

Any time people get their heart set on a pattern or time frame for reveals they just set themselves up for disappointment. Personally I'd like to see another profession reveal soon, even though it's likely the sneaky stealthy profession next.

Awesome. I've been keeping up with Guild Wars 2 news, but I know little about the lore and even less about the Norn specifically. I'm looking forward to this!

Norn don't have 'Norn Week'.

They have 'Norn Strong'.

By the Bear! Norn week so soon?! I may be interested as hell in new Guild Wars 2 information, but putting the word "Norn" in it will make my interest go sky-high!

Is that screenshot from Guild Wars 1 or 2? I didn't play much of Prophecies, so I'm not sure if Norn were even in that game, but the head on that model looks really odd. Much less detailed than many of the other models we've seen so far.

@gamebynight

I think it's from the "Eye of the North" GW1 Expansion (When the race was first introduced). We haven't seen much of the Norm in-game models yet for GW2. So next week should be pretty interesting.
