ArenaNet came out firing on all cylinders with the launch of the Icebrood Saga finale, partially because they are bringing attention to the future of Guild Wars 2 and the next expansion.

Guild Wars 2 will pave the way to the next expansion with a pile of events, returning content, freebies and more. All of this will be done throughout the summer of 2021, the same period when new details on End of Dragons will be revealed. These are all the announcements ArenaNet made, with short descriptions but if you want to read more, you can click on the provided links.

May 11 - Skill balance

ArenaNet folks are seeking to shift the meta and this will happen in two weeks. A balance pass will come around for both professions and their elite specialisations in order to shake up the meta and provide fresh new builds. The devs didn't provide more information yet.

May 25 - Free Living World episodes

If you have gaps in story content that you don't feel like paying money for, this may be the best time to log in. It's also a great time for newcomers to come around and avoid missing some of the best storytelling in the game.

Legendary Armory will require you to get these items only once and they will become available for the entire account. Looks were already available through the Wardrobe but now you get to keep the functionality as well.
