As usual, everything painted with a glowy pink tint. It still seems to me that Anet chases the new player and utterly dismisses (or forgets about) the old. Oh well, will continue to plug away GW2 Gold . Most of my friends are long term players (been playing since Guild Wars: Prophecies launched) and we've all been having a blast with the expansion so far. It feels like there is plenty of new stuff for us to do while still letting us progress with existing characters. Sure, some stuff could use some tweaking and there are some bugs. But that isn't unique when it comes MMO expansions. This launch has been incredibly smooth.
Heart of Thorns seems to be trying to cater to both new players and old players. I'm not sure how ANet has abandoned veteran players with this release. Most of the new systems and changes to existing systems seem intended to cater *specifically* to veteran players while also attempting to draw in new ones. I really don't know where this conclusion comes from. Legendary crafting is the only thing that really caters to vet players in any way mastery wise, minus elite specs, which are really just another trait tree.
Am I the only one who thinks the drop of hp reqa to 250 for elites is just insane....I quite enjoyed the challenge to attain it. Now every persom basically fresh out of tyria will be extremely close to the requirements. how many alts do you have and do you play casually? or should the game just be made for you? If you're not letting the download finish then there's your problem once I let the d/l finish I was good to go. Yet *another* prime time" update... will you PLEASE stop updating the game during PRIME TIME!! Please??????? Please remove that mentor tag..PLEASE..lol Theres wayy too many and its too ez to aquire.
