ArenaNet's just about ready to deliver on the much-ballyhooed spring update to Guild Wars 2, which will go live next Tuesday, April 19.

As befits the company's modus operandi, not much is being officially said about what will be in this update yet, other than the promise of a new legendary short bow, which will be the last legendary seen in the game for a while. In his AMA from last month, Mike O'Brien said the update would be about "about reducing grind, clearing away some tedium, getting quickly to the fun, and improving rewards," so we'll just have to wait and see what comes of that.

The update will have to deliver on a lot of points, as player confidence seems to be at a critically low point. If it doesn't click, things could get real ugly real fast.
