Guild Wars 2 fans, are you ready for your favorite thing ever: a balance patch? Because that’s coming next week along with the map tweaks, and ArenaNet dished on what all is changing in today’s dev blog. Specifically, this round is all about elite specs and the studio’s attempt to create more “meaningful choice” when it comes to those classes with major trade-offs in swapping to those elites.
You’re going to need to look at your own class to really grok how it’s changing for you personally. I main a Berserker myself, and ArenaNet is calling the overhaul “drastic” and tweaking berserk mode heavily, plus adjusting a truckton of skills. My main alt is a Ranger, but looking over the Druid changes (even with the pet nerf) certainly makes that spec a whole lot more appealing to me when normally I wasn’t into it.
Just making another note here that this is like two big dev releases in 24 hours. ArenaNet has stepped up its game.
