Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns testing begins today

    
37

Are you ready to enter the Heart of Thorns? Because Guild Wars 2 is opening the testing doors today, allowing players to step in and experience a small amount of the expansion’s leveling content with a Revenant or the eight extant professions. There are three play windows open today: 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EDT, and 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. EDT. (That last one technically stretches testing to tomorrow in the Eastern time zone, but let’s not split hairs.)

We’ve seen a few of the expansion’s elite specs (Reaper, Dragonhunter, and Chronomancer), but you may not be able to play with those in depth. If you can, though, feel free to talk about them all over the place, as the beta test does not feature an NDA. If you were lucky enough to get a key (possibly through loot), feel free to let us know in the comments what you think of the expansion thus far!

Yangers Just because it’s datamined in the game doesn’t mean it’d be in the store. Could be in a mail message, or an item recieved. Or something on the character select screen.

why would I clixk play when I cant stand either of these two people?
I am not a sadist. Yes I realized it was a video but the pic capture of the two showed me all I need to know.
Glad you like Joe – I prefer Yahtzee and Jim Sterling.

Pretty basic beta all around.  Same Demo version with a bit expanded for first zone it seems like.  Classes are all identical to how they were and of course 99.9% Revenants running around the zone.  There is the new day/night cycle.  Basically soon as Night hits all the old Day time events stop which is pretty annoying if you were halfway through an event.

And yet it was data mined that the client has info about a pre order. That’d be the shop surely? And that needs gems. However, as gems can be bought with gold, which can be farmed, I agree it’ll be no gems – has to be really.
