Check out Bog Otter’s guide to returning to Guild Wars 2 as a Heart of Thorns noob

So let’s say you’re somebody like MOP’s Justin — somebody who liked Guild Wars 2 way back in the day but didn’t consider picking up Heart of Thorns until recently when the price came tumbling down and the upcoming expansion leaks sent you hunting for your wallet. Where do you start with content that’s been out a long time and has undergone dramatic changes in its almost two years?

Friend of Massively OP Richie “Bog Otter” Procopio has a few ideas, and he’s chronicled them in a new video on his YouTube channel, one in a multi-part “boomerangs” series on returning to Guild Wars 2. He takes viewers through getting to the expansion maps, which masteries to work on first (gliding!), the Revenant class, class specs, fractals, raiding, guild halls, dailies, the living story episodes, PvP, and on and on. Even somebody who plays Heart of Thorns is probably going to learn something from the video, so it’s worth a watch!

The HoT expansion also has added my favorite feature to the game: raiding. … A 4th raid wing was added to the game …, and for anybody who is really into the lore of GW2, this is a must-see experience!

You are part of the problem, sir! You don’t see anything wrong with that, worse, you are even promoting it! :/

GW2 is one of those MMOs I enjoy following even though I don’t play it anymore, so I found the video to be entertaining.
I can see a lot that could pull me back to GW2, but the biggest thing that keeps me from returning is .. the game’s armor.

lack of 1st person view is what put me off, but they added that. I am not 100% sure why I am not playing it anymore. I always enjoyed it.

Sounds like this is 9th in the series covering major changes as they occurred. Earlier series entries might be helpful, but as a new player I like the way you are approaching it, anywho.
