Rumor: Guild Wars 2 leak reveals expansion masteries, locations

New images suggesting sweeping changes coming in Guild Wars 2’s next expansion have been released into the wilds of Reddit.

As usual, we’ll be tucking the whole thing behind spoiler code in case you really do not want to know. Read on if you do.

The huge batch of images appear to show a partial set of new masteries for most of the classes, maps covering a large span of the Crystal Desert from Guild Wars 1 (including Vabbi and the Desolation, so we’re in Nightfall territory), and mounts. Yep. Mounts.

As to the provenance, welp, it’s either legit or an outrageously convincing and elaborate hoax. They don’t contradict leaks from last fall either.

Should probably take the banner picture down and change it from the front page if you are trying to avoid spoiling people…

Personally I thought it took some brass balls for MassivelyOP to post that image in the banner, now that they’ve removed it I lost a little respect for them.

Nice to see mounts added. The lack of mounts was always an immersion breaker for me.

We go North! To Vabbi!
And for real this time! More or less.

No personal housing: what is this non-meta trash? Where’s my doll house for my human females? At least they’ll get get a pony.

A game that has like 10 /emotes isn’t going to add Housing.

They DO NOT care about that kind of stuff.

This game still thinks it can become an “e-sport”

They can’t, i don’t think they think that anymore, but they can’t really take their heads outta that line of thought.

I’ve kept up with a lot of the leaks over the past year, real and fake alike, and I felt this one was legit enough to tip. It has that air of plausibility this time around.
Strangely enough, someone made an extensive text-only leak the other day that was interesting and convinced enough people to manipulate the price of an item on the trading post. It’s considered debunked now, but I was able to sell off some excess quantities to make a quick dozen gold for a material that would otherwise be sold at vendor price.

I’m glad I made Astralaria after seeing the first elite spec leak many months ago. My mesmers are going to be splendid with it.

The set of images look quite real. and with all legitimate leaks, I’m curious about the source: who for what reason leaked these?

I haven’t gotten goosebumps reading GW2 news since Colin and Mike were on stage at PAX South announcing HoT. It all went downhill from there starting with the announcement of new legendaries turning into a “handful of new legendaries” which then turned into, “Look guys. There’s 3 new legendaries, but thanks for pre-ordering already.”

I got legit excited looking through all of that. Now I am tempering that with remembering how much good will they squandered with me and HoT. Legendary Armor is only coming out today guys and it was a back of the box sales bullet point for HoT which was released in Oct. of 2015. Think about that and temper your expectations of what they end up saying and IF(big if)it matches their actions.

I’ll be getting this IF(big if again)reviews from friends are favorable. I will not be pre-ordering after how terribly I feel they treated their customers with HoT initially being released. I think they kinda made good on it later, but that was more them realizing they effed up majorly.

Obviously dont click on the big button that says “Read More” if you dont want the spoilers.

As to whether or not Massively should publish stuff like this – as long as they do it in the manner they have (clearly labeling it as spoiler and reinforcing that it is still rumor), of course they should. At this point, these images have been posted across many different sites on the Internet. Writing about a rumor (especially one with such overwhelming proof) is very appropriate imo and something I would expect from Massively.

Barring denial by Anet, this looks extremely legit – and, if true, is pretty exciting.

Well the map itself is a spoiler and cant be hidden. But thats about the only problem I have with such articles.
