Guild Wars 2 unloads a dump truck of expansion dev blogs

    
117

Beep… beep… beep. That’s the sound of a gargantuan Guild Wars 2 info truck that’s preparing to unload its sizable cargo into your cortex. Ready?

We’ll start with a series of Heart of Thorns guild hall dev blogs on the official site. It begins with a tour through the steps necessary to build a guild hall. Then comes the task of creating decorations and guild items to populate the vast space of these instances. Beyond that, players will be kept busy with a bevy of guild hall missions. All of the work on the guild halls has prompted the team to reevaluate guild features and upgrades as well.

There’s also a pair of dev blogs focusing on PvP features of the expansion amd covering PvP guild teams and guild objective claiming in world vs. world action. ArenaNet is warning players to beware of third-party sales of Heart of Thorns, as these are likely fraudulent.

Getting away from the expansion for a second, the studio announced that this Tuesday’s patch will contain a system that allows players to change the stats on ascended-grade gear.

With all that said, we’ll leave you with a recent Twitch livestream that shows off the upcoming guild hall system.

Peregrine_Falcon Yes I’m reading too much into you….and I see a petulant child who has nothing better to do than keep score over trivial shit. I was being nice….It’s you who assumed I was belittling you.

Once again you’re assuming emotions that I’m not feeling in an attempt to belittle my statements. I would like to respectfully recommend that you stop trying to be psychic. So far you’re 0 for 4.

What a misleading title. Are we talking about GW2? Their blog posts usually consist for 1-2 paragraphs, barely ever have any information, just fillers, repeating old stuff.

I finally finished crafting my first set of ascended armor this weekend and the announcement that we would have to ability to change the stats was a huge relief. I feel much more comfortable with my investment now with the upcoming re-balance changes.

I’m really only curious how much of these quality-of-life improvements will migrate back to people NOT buying the expansion.  Would n(for example) a person NOT owning the expansion be able to enter a guild hall, or is that only for people who bought HoT?  I have to imagine the basic improvements to guild functionality will be universal (can’t really see the point of running 2 systems simultaneously)?

groo the wanderer  davidemo89 Very good point actually. I never grind in GW2, except on Halloween because I LOVE opening ToT bags. But I have seen some people who do run the dungeons to death. And some of them like it. I think the ultimate point is that grinding can easily be avoided and that’s why calling it a “grindfest” is incorrect. Also you mention that one person’s grind is another person’s fun – people’s experience of a MMO will vary widely because of this.
