So new expansion announced.  New heavy armor class, the revenant which is basically a heavy armor melee ritualist from the looks of it.  New class specializations, only one mentioned was ranger --> druid.  Alternate advanced system that somehow gets you hang gliders? i didn't really get that.  Guild halls! so hot.  There was more stuff, i didn't really catch all of it.

I'm really happy the new race isn't Tengu, but I'm unhappy there is no new race :/

Quaggan necro or bust.

edit to add actual content: I'm mostly on board with what they said at the reveal. Level cap / gear level staying the same is good, mastery system [alternate advancement] is whatever, at least it's not as obnoxious as gear infusing was in Prophecies. GvG and guild halls sound pretty great.

I'm definitely buying this.  I love GW2's combat, exploration and quests.  Don't really care for pvp, wvw and their shitty story content.   I just love to run around their zones and do a bit of crafting.

The more I think about it the more I like it.  I'm hoping the prof masteries are like FF or SWOTR where there are two or more choices for which way to go.  Like if the Ranger choice is just Druid, that's cool and all but I'm hoping it's Druid or x or y.  That'll really breathe life into the existing characters. 

Might have to join a guild again, unless guild halls are attainable for the little solo guilds (doubtful!)

I assume eventually there will be choices but we are only getting one per class this expansion.

I took the plunge and bought it while it was on sale. So far I'm really liking it. Lost most of yesterday and last night to it (although a good 3-4 hours of that was just the install). I'm kinda sorry I didn't try it sooner, but that was mostly due to up until now having a machine that would probably have choked on it.

I was drinking when I wrote this, so sue me if it goes astray.

So I'm 5/8 through the season 2 living story, and I have to say it's actually kinda... good? The story is still not particularly memorable, but the gameplay has been fresh and varied. Bonus: shoutouts to GW1 stuff, including a particular plot character 'recognizing' me (this may be the same for all characters though, whether they linked a GW1 account or not). I loved the miniboss/boss fights so far, too. I was getting Dark Souls vibes at one point... a laggy, bargain basement Dark Souls, but still.  awesome, for real

What makes me a bit sad, though, is that after banking my PVT 6/6 monk armor for a set of zerker 6/6 flame legion armor and going for a full dps spec instead of my arcane/water build, my elementalist's effectiveness skyrocketed... especially if I just stay in fire attunement and keep lava font + meteor swarm on cooldown. Who needs all that utility when it's faster, better, and easier to just overwhelm enemies with sheer dps! I don't suppose this is going to change in the expansion, either.

Welcome to GW2 where it's berserker or go home  Heartbreak

My warrior still has a set of soldiers gear which I use out of habit, but almost every other class uses zerk and I hate it. The experiment with breaking the trinity is flawed and thats even after they tried to nerf zerger reliance.

Making one set of armor have 3 offensive stats rather than 2/1 or 1/2 offensive/defensive was a mistake.

Can someone promote so I can do guildy stuff or missions or whatever?  Also, I have a relative who wants to play and I'd like to invite her.  I don't remember much about guilds and missions and all that.  I know that doing guild stuff won't really matter because hardly anyone is playing but I want to do it anyway.  Maybe people will come back for the new stuff.  I mailed Hawkbit in the game but he's not around.  HEY HAWKBIT - YOU THERE?  I sent you 6 gold, 6 silver and 6 copper so you would, you know, do stuff.  I should read up on this again.  An expansion?  Finally?  Really?  :)

Ya. I can log on tonight after work to update stuff. You can always PM me here on the forums which I'll see a lot faster than in-game. I think I'm GM in at least two other games for BC and I don't play any of them. :/

IT HAS FINALLY CLICK'D!!!11!  ACK!

Ehm, now....For some reasons, in my previous tries, GW2 "defeated" me from the beginning. Too much stuff being thrown at you from the get go, the bizzare "renown" quest givers, events popping up, vistas, POIs, weapons determing your skills; yeah, definitely a different take on the genre, but that unfortunately didn't manage to catch me :(

And I say that with much regret, because Guild Wars 1 is probably the MMOG I've played the most after UO. Although I've read that the New Player Experience wasn't met with particular appreciation, so far it's what actually pushed me beyond the first few hours (but I agree that they could have left Vistas and POIs untouched and visible from the beginning).

I got a second account going and am experiencing the new experience for the first time and I cannot see how it's better, but I am also not the target audience for it. I find it weird that certain things are visible and there, but unavailable until you hit a certain level. There was some weird decisions going on there I think. Skill points visible, but unable to interact with? That makes no sense, especially since if someone else kicks off the 'event' you can piggyback it and unlock the point. Having to wait until 22 to go to sPvP is dumb too.

I got a face full of game and couldn't concentrate because of how much there was to do right at the start and only got one character to level 20-something and quit early on. too.  Now it's CLICK'D!!!11! for me, too.   awesome, for real  I'm hooked at the moment but who knows how long that will last.  I'm fickle.

Thank you, Hawkbit.  You are, as usual, sweet and reliable.  Not like, you know, some of those others.   Heart

I Agree by the way.  The new player experience revamp is a load of Arse and drove me from the game a few months back. Now I/m back playing it again but I'm bringing up a new character and its pretty much a load of crap.

Once you get to level 15 or so the fame completly opens up and is a lot of fun. Whoever did that revamp need serious therapy

Thankfully I have so many scrolls of instant level 20 that I'll never have to worry about the lowest levels.

Apparently they cut the Fear Itself chapter without removing any other game references to it.

Same here, also have a ton of skill point scrolls to use if I really want to rush a new character.  I don't play a ton now, but still log in from time to time to grab the log in bonus and explore some of the new stories.  I'll probably buy the expansion when it comes out.  Both for the new class stuff and because the game has more than rewarded the money I spent on the original box.

That and I have so many Tomes of Knowledge that my Revenant will be an insta-80. Only reason I am doing this is because of the new account on the new server. Thankfully the run to 20 when it gets better only takes a couple hours.

After how many years of people griping about it, Heart of Thorns will got rid of the requirement to have done the WVW maps for Map completion.

Expansion and living story both killed my interest. The GW2 artists and level designers are amazing, the idea of a world made up of dynamic events has potential, but they don't seem to have had the slightest clue what to do with it since launch. Lots of story content consumed and discarded, hero NPC's the game wants you to care about but they're mostly annoying drama queens and the game mechanics are terrible and stagnant. Terrible group play, so many dud powers limiting builds, so little evolution and far too long spamming the same small handful of attacks.

I haven't been watching the expansion that closely since the first news release... but not seeing much to change my mind that they still fail at game design.
