Possible transport in GW2 ?

    So anyone thats played GW1 or the GW2 demo will know that you can swift travel around the map using the waypoint system or by using Asura gates. What I am wonndering is not "will there be mounts", as that is a whole other story, but will there be any sort of transport similar to say, the Deeprun tram from WoW to take you around a city, or boats to take you on long journeys etc. etc.

    When you see the waypoint system and the Asura gates, you kind of think that such things would not be needed, but there is some Guild Wars 2 concept art that shows that there might be some transport systems other than waypointing and Asura gates.




    So yea, these are all Guild Wars 2 concept art drawings and they seem to show a train, a ship and some sort of flying machine.

    It's more than likely that these are just drawings and nothing more, or they might end up as some cool scenery that doesn't do anything, but makes you wonder if there may be something in it, maybe just for fun.

    I would give my right arm to be able to ride around the world on a train like that.

    Or the space-marine-helmet-copter.

    I actually hope they do add mounts, although I think its extremely unlikely as map-travel will pretty much account for all our travel needs once we've discovered all these places.

    The helicopter is on Daniel Dociu's website and it is entitled "Charr Chopper".

    As you said, waypointing and Asura gates will pretty much cover all your travelling needs, but having mounts and/or modes of travel such as trains/boats/planes/helicopters would be a nice addition, although as you said, highly unlikely.

    If nothing else, they are nice pieces of artwork to look at.

    Thing is it would be nice to w8 for train and after u get in traver for some time, talk to other ppl and such but only for 1 maybe 2 times. As we remember from Aion is was really annoying to w8 for flying ship over and over.

    But still it would be nice to see something like that in game :)

    I dont think these will be transports, at most you may interact with these during some event or maybe personal storyline, that is, if they won't just show up parked in some area :)

    I would ofc love to have an event where you would ride a train and the objective would be to do something on the train before it reaches the destination! (remember that steven seagal movie?)
