I must say that it is not my favorite place, in fact themes that have to do with jungle I do not like very much.
But apart from that, the maps are huge, and have their beauty to be a appreciate. But on top of that each one have there owne events and treasures boxes, which is pretty cool.
One of the things that annoyed me on these maps is the difficult access to the Vista, Point of Interest, hero points (you often need someone to complete it) and the like.
The map I liked the most was Auric Basin, I do not know how to explain it well, but maybe it’s because is aurene’s house, i don’t know but I really like it.
The one I hate most is Dragon’s Stand, the events in this place take about 1 hour to begin. There was one time I was doing the dailys and this place was the choosen, It was about to start the event in a few seconds and puff everyone on the map died and I was like “WTF?! What happened?” And the event it started over again and I went to do another daily.
I loved the masterys system, a lot of varied, “obliges” the player to unlock some masterys to advance in history, but with the purpose of improving the mastery of the player.
I had the opportunity to see the guild house where it was, there were various decorations, several upgrades and other things I did not have a chance to explore well, before they kicked me out without saying anything, I still did not really understand why. First of all they invited me and I accepted, it was true that I was not an active member (but it was an active guild why they did not ask me if I was an active member?), but I did donated gold and items when I could.
Anyway, all I have to say is if you want a guild create one of yourself, for this kind of thing does not happen to you.
The Raids have not yet had the opportunity to experience but from what I read in the guild wars 2 wiki are the fucking harder dungeons to pass because is necessary to have coordination and strategy to complete the events, but above all have friends, at least a few 10 on minimum.
The Fractal I once experienced alone but forget too difficult. What you can do is go see what groups are playing Fractal and join, but you can have a nice people or not, but above all say soon if you are noob in that scenario or not because otherwise puff, the “ladies” sell olive oils to you. But it’s a cool experience and I enjoyed it, it’s a shame not to have a team for it.
Adventurers system is undoubtedly more daily events than those that already exist, which they implemented in this expansion in order to gain more extra loot, Exp and Masterys, depending on the medals (bronze, silver and gold). I have tried some that I like, but there are others that I did not like very much.
The 80 Bost that they raise to level in a blink of an eye is not bad at all, it gives good weapons, good armor, stays with the traids all full and with the specializations all pre-defined, but the bonuses of level up in normal way, the extra hero points you will not have, if you want to have you need acquired through the exploration of the Word Map. My theory is that these hero points of level up are those that were used to fill the traids … Strange… because I remember that this did not reach all the traids ….
As you would expect the difficulty in these maps screwed me up because I play alone in this type of game, but I must add that are a vast population on maps that are mostly willing to help anyone who needs it, either for a point of interest, views or hero points.
If it’s worth buying the expansion?
Yes, it’s worth either by the story, containing or any other reason. Mine was by history and content.
