    A good texture is a tool you SHOULD keep using when you get it right. Oh noes they made this frozen wasteland the same mix of blue and white as some other frozen wastelands!

    It's a fucking frozen wasteland, what were you hoping for?

    How about you stop buying bread till bakeries quit using flour?

    I thought it looked alright. I hear so many negative reviews about Halas from the test server that I was pleasantly surprised.

    I don't know if I want to move there yet but the houses were attractive.

    It actually looks alot better now than it did a few weeks ago on test. I think they modified a few textures, added more to break up the monotony, and tweaked the lighting.

    I also bought a 5 room house. It's the best looking housing in the game by far. I also got a new set of appearance gear and a good chunk of AA from doing the quests while chrono mentored.

    I am enjoying Halas so far. Really like how the questing sets you up to pimp out the housing, which by far kills any other housing imo. Also the look of the gear is pretty sweet. My only complaint is the swimming, there is way to much of swim way out to this island do these two quests, come back turn in, then swim all the way out there and do these two quests, etc etc.

    Finding that framerates are roughly half what I'm getting elsewhere, and thats with just 5 people in zone. Of course it could just be the crappy hardware they allocate to the EU servers.

    This.

    Shader 3.0 looks great on my end. Tremendous improvement.

    I am totally lazy so the new travel system kicks major ass. Freed up some amenities for my guild hall as well.

    Kicked up some stats on weapons which was nice, unless they up'ed all the stats on the mobs too then it's like...meh.

    Halas looks ok, nothing to write about.

    All-in-all for a Live Update, I consider it well done.

    After hearing horror stories from the test server, Halas was certainly not as as small as Somborn or Isle of Mara village, it looked alright, nothing special.

    Frostfang sea area was bigger than I expected but overall it pretty much looks like a piece of 'Everfrost,' bland, icy, nothing to write home about.

    As a Level 90 I went to Halas and Frostfang areas for the AA discovery points, nothing else. I certainly don't think I will be returning to that area unless a raid zone involving 'icy keep' pops up and we've got the Flag for that.

    I certainly would not move residence from Qeynos to that dead zone no matter how many windows or added rooms the houses have.

    Guess what ... It has, and since there is no flag (hasn't been flagging for raid zones since ROK has there?) I guess you technically do.

    How long you been away from the game anyway?
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.
