Following player-sourced feedback, changes are coming to Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns.Writing over at the official Guild Wars 2 website, developer Colin Johanson revealed some of the changes coming in the future.
Johanson explains that while there’s been a lot of positive reactions to Heart of Thorns’ endgame Mastery system, the team “didn’t do a great job properly aligning expectations on how your elite specialization is earned,” which led to some players expecting to get their elite specialization early on, or in some cases, off the bat.
The plan moving forward is to update the elite specialization unlock with the hopes of finding a “better middle ground,” by changing how many points is required to unlock every possible ability from 400 hero points to 250.
If you’ve already purchased what you needed at the original pricing, expect a hero points refund.
The next change outlined sees Adventure minigames becoming more accessible, so that users can play them more often. Specifically, The Bugs in the Branches, Shooting Gallery, Flying Circus, and Beetle Feast minigames are set to be made more readily available.
Last but not least, the team has found a setting that appears to be creating lower populations in the Heart of Maguuma maps. That, obviously, is going to be fixed. Guild Wars 2 Gold Online
