All the Trimmings

In British English „All the trimmings“ means:
„all the extra things that traditionally come with something to make it more special“

As you can see here:




So regarding the statement made by CA it probably just means that the Free LL will come with all the extras that make LLs more special. So things like unique animations, magical items, interesting mechanics, quest battles and so on.

Even if it’s intended to be a pun about „trimming wood“ it could just be a pun about umm... Wood Elves.

So that doesn’t mean the Free LL cannot be Drycha, she is definitely a very likely choice. It just means that she is not 100% confirmed.

    Nice, i was thinking of making this topic just now myself. Happy you thought the same.

    Trimmings is also used as a term for dress decorating so it could also be a pun towards Ariel who is wearing a fancy dress.

    I know it's an American holiday, but Thanksgiving is next week and trimmings is also a food term pertaining to Thanksgiving.

    I mean, I don't think anyone doubts that "all the trimmings", as a pun, has an actual meaning aside from the literal action related to the bushes (or maybe someone does, I don't know). I do agree that this isn't necessarily meant to indicate that Drycha is coming, but all the times the meaning of the expression has been discussed in this forum feel a bit redundant.

    EDIT: nevermind, you have a pretty legitimate thing to add in regards to the meaning. I was just reminded of when the blog post was made and people were pointing out the obvious. Apologies for jumping the gun.

    It means Ariel, or at least it should, that's the only thing that matters!

    I feel making a thread for this is entirely redundant but considering how damned often it's brought up by people saying "Drycha is already confirmed, stop crying about Drycha."... I can't really pretend I wouldn't want to make a thread like this myself.

    The pun is ambiguous and can refer just as easily to Ariel even if you go with the "plant trimmings" meaning because of Ariel's magic items being parts cut from magic trees.

    All the trimmings can be interpreted in many ways, no one knows which way to interprate it is the right one until the new content is revealed.

    I don't see the point of this thread, you're just giving your own interpratation, presenting it as the truth when it's not.

    It’s the official and most common meaning.

    It’s barely connected with cutting wood.

    The point is that people used the trimmings statement as an argument why Drycha is more likely than Ariel. Which is wrong as I proofed with the official meaning of „all the trimmings“.

    People considered Drycha as confirmed because of that statement which she is clearly not.

    Often used in food context, as above. And "Yes", you do need sprouts for the trimmings to be complete!

    Don't act like you knew the truth behind this wording because you don't. No one knows if this was a hint or if it wasn't and no one will know until we see the new content.

    Seems like denial to me. Drycha is inevitable.

    Could also be a pun towards a Christmas release date where people usually have big fancy meals.

    Yes could be a pun towards Wood Elves and Ariel. Nothing Indicates it’s a pun towards Drycha. It’s just people seeing what they want to see.

    Like I said many times, this statement could mean anything or nothing.

    She is possible and likely at best. It’s a 50:50 chance to be Drycha of Ariel.

    There is absolutely nothing that makes Drycha more likely than Ariel. Both have equally good chances to be the FLC.

    Yes, a reskinned Branchwraith has the same probability of being free content than a completely new model of an elf with butterfly wings. How exactly? We’ve never had an FLC LL with a completely new model.
  • ArneSoArneSo Hamburg, Germany Registered Users Posts: 14,641
    @neodeinos

    All the trimmings can be a hint for Ariel as well so the argument that Drycha is hinted is moot and completely nonsensical

    It’s not a regular FLC its a Free extra LL as a reward for being a loyal fan.

    All the trimmings means all the extras that make a LL special, so it will get a fancy model, new animations and so on.

    So considering the meaning of all the trimmings, Ariel is way more likely.

    That's only an assumption we're not getting the regular quality we've had in FLC. There is absolutely nothing suggesting the quality might be higher than usual.

    It’s a more realistic assumption than trimmings being a pun for Drycha. Which is exactly my point. Both have equally good chances.

    Here comes the denial again.

    Not it's not realistic in the slightiest since there is absolutely nothing pointing in that direction.

    It is a regular FLC. It replaces the one we normally get. I’d be more inclined to believe that this one would actually be special if we still got a regular FLC LL alongside it, but as is all I see is another FLC LL. Easiest LLs from 8th are Araloth and Drycha, but since we know it’s female it’s Drycha. If it is Ariel I’d gIve CA massive props but I doubt it. CA would never give such a costly model away for free.

    They literally tie patches to DLC because it costs less that way. CA are a business not a charity. If Ariel comes it’ll be DLC LL or a mechanic tied to the DLC.

    Either way I’m far too apathetic about the DLC at this point to really care who we get but Drycha is cheapest so I’d bet my life on her being the FLC LL.
