Huge GW2 update incoming next Tues
The big thing is the whole trait revamp. Basically they're getting rid of the old system and putting in the new specialization system in prep for the new expansion. In other words, I'm gonna have to revisit each of my PC's and redo their whole build.
Here's some build sites that claim to have the updated traitlines.
Since they're removing all the stats from traits and putting them into the equipment... I may end up needing to replace lots of equipment at the same time. Already sure my ele and guardian are both going to need more +vit gear to make up for what they're losing from traits.
Mesmer changes are looking good. Engineer got shafted at first glance (RIP speedy kits). Ele didn't get icebow nerfed, so anything else is gravy. Haven't had a chance to study the rest.
Also getting some quality of life changes, and most of those are good. Geodes and bandit crests are getting shoved into the wallet, so yay for bag space. Soulbound stuff now shows which PC they're soulbound to, which is another yay.
Only bad QOL change is that there's going to be a extra 5% stat difference between exotic and ascended. Not...as much of an issue for PvE (I hope), but sucks for the people who have multiple alts playing WvW.
As for the info so far about the expansion...still withholding judgment until more info comes out.
