Guild Wars 2: Item Preview Update

ArenaNet added a new feature to the February teaser page: Trading Post Item Preview!

Even though the feature list for the February update was already posted on the teaser page, ArenaNet is not done. On Friday, ArenaNet added one more feature to the upcoming content patch for Guild Wars 2: the ability to preview items in the Trading Post!

After the update, players will be able to right click items in the Trading Post and select preview to open up the preview pane for any previewable item listed. This is a feature that players have been asking for since launch so it is a welcome addition to the next patches feature list, but that isn't all!

In addition to being able to preview items directly out of the Trading Post the item preview window has gotten an upgrade. Now players will not only be able to preview weapons in their default sheathed mode, but also preview the weapon when it is wielded as well as previewing the weapon by itself.

Are you more excited to see item previewing in the the Trading Post or the ability to preview weapons while they are wielded?

I've waited so long for the preview ability, it feels like a distant dream from my childhood. So this is a very important update, especially since it's something that should have really been in sooner. The feature of how to preview the items, is innovative. Even from vendors if I wanted to see a weapon looked on my small, light armor wearing asura, most of the time I would switch to my town clothes just to be able to see weapons on me (weapons scale small on this race, as well as being hidden by most armor).. so this is indeed a very great decision to add multiple ways to see an item.
Things I sometimes play...

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"I want to be a unicorn!"
"Awww, why's that?"........
"So I can stab people with my face."
