Guild Wars 2’s lunar new year patch is here with some big class balance changes too
Of course, today’s patch does more than paint the town red; it also patches in the planned alacrity and boon changes, boosts credit given to support players for supporty things, reimagines the Mesmer, and adds assorted buffs and nerfs (mostly buffs, actually) in the service of balancing the rest of the classes, particularly some of the unloved elite specs. I’m sure someone will find something to gripe about, but so far, the response on Reddit is more or less content.
Unfortunately, ArenaNet notes, it “fixed a bug in which players could be launched into outer space when gliding into an updraft in the Hearts and Minds chapter of Heart of Thorns.” Dammit.
We’ll be streaming up some Guild Wars 2 events this evening on OPTV, to stay tuned!
