The big issue is that they were very dishonest. Prior to this announcement, their FAQ read that you would need to own the base game to play HoT; true enough. So people who wanted to start playing Gw2 due to an expansion coming out bought Gw2. Then they changed the FAQ to say the base game would come with HoT, followed by announcing the pre-purchase options. It became apparent that people would have to fork out money for a game they just bought.

Of course, the other obvious issues are is that they have shown us very little content so far to suggest it's worth $50. Most of it is changes to the core-mechanics. $50 is almost as much as the game was originally, and it came with a huge map and obviously lots of content. I will be very surprised if the expansion has anywhere near that based on what they've shown so far. Maybe they have an ace up their sleeve? You've have to be mad to pay $50 (minimum) for what we know so far imo.

Oh yeah and Fuzzy Bunny them not including a character slot. That is complete rubbish. I expect character slot sales in the Gem Store before the expansion is released though so I guess there's that.

Eh, you can always wait until there's a sale. They'll do that sooner or later anyway.

Oh, I think I like these new skill/mechanics changes.

I like Lobsters Arch. The game really looks nice on high graphics.

Not a fan of Guardian/Warrior changes so far of the main characters I play. I have kind of been conditioned to avoiding using Burst Skills as much as possible on Warrior, now the DPS builds rely on spamming it basically. Meditation Guard seems to have got a bit of a nerf damage wise although I expect like Warrior, when people nut out the dps numbers, an equivalent/better build will be found. I quite like the pew pew Ranger buffs though.

How the devil have you been playing warrior without spamming eviscerate and/or killshot? Anyway, for fun with quickness, get into a party with a guard and a mesmer. Such brutality.

World bosses have gotten less difficult thanks to the reworked condition damage mechanics though.

The old Beserker's power trait that had 15% dmg (and another for 15% crit chance) increase for full adrenaline is why I rarely used to use burst skills in PVE/dungeon setting. Pretty much just used it to finish mobs off since the fairly recent adrenaline nerf that meant you could no longer keep adrenaline up between fights. Now though spamming Eviscerate is easier and more rewarding than ever before.

Yeah the quickness buffs are kind of crazy. Ranger got them too for personal use.

I think they're going to nerf conditions on World Bosses lol. Dem 1500 condi stacks though.

One of the best PVE guilds in the game showcasing Warrior's DPS... figures!

I really hope they don't but I would see why they have to. I did teq with about 11 minutes left on the timer because of the condition damage changes. It's absolutely ridiculous how much health you can shred through in such a short amount of time.

I think they might simply adjust difficulty on existing world bosses. This mechanic revamp is in preparation for HoT and its world content, after all.

I'm not sure if revenants are overpowered or if I'm good enough at this game to instantly do well at completely new content just because I'm given a max level character with full gear...

Apparently now you get a free character slot if you preorder; two if you get the deluxe/ultimate edition. Guess I can blow my achievement gems on bank upgrades or something.

I'm really tempted to get back into this, I made an elementalist which I didn't level too much, don't think I got it above 20.

I've been playing during them but not with Beta access. Funny seeing a bunch of an elite specialisations around without having any idea what class they even are.

Tried doing the beta, but they reset my beta masteries and I didn't even get enough xp to get gliding unlocked this time. I couldn't get to any of the major fights or find a group to run any of the sequences, and the map felt mostly dead with no taxis.

I expect I am now prepared for what the expansion will be like 3-4 months after it's been out.

Mainly because the additional weapons tend to muddy the waters a bit.

Also, Heralds seem to function similarly to bonders in GW1.

Well, finished patching for the expansion, logged in immediately. No technical issues so far. I'm impressed by that alone.

Just rolled a new revenant. Now to begin the long, arduous process of getting to level 80.
