This is what the Wiki says about Hearts.
The Dynamic Events have other markers.

having watched most of the videos I got two questions which I hope you guys can help with.
1) Does it just seemed to me that the heal is not much of a use and tiny in comparison to the multitude of condition and damage? Is there a video where somebody uses it effectively, I fear that the balance of healing vs dmg is really off.
2) Can somebody find the racial skills in any of the skill videos? I checked with the skill list in Guild wars 2 wiki, but it doesn't match with the skill videos of any race/class I've seen. No Prayer to Dwarnya (human), no warband (charr) and no animal transformation (norn), did I miss it or did they scratch the idea???
Hope you can help.

I can only answer the first question, and I can only guess it is because ArenaNet has stated that they want people to avoid damage in the first place, so you should not have to heal up all the time.

Well fighting isn't just about dealing damage or healing. Your healing skill is not a panic button, but a tool that you have to use at the right time. The effectiveness of your healing skill is dependent on what other skills are in play at that time. If you are constantly being damaged by your opponent, while you also have conditions on you, your healing skill won't help you much. But if you've managed to gain some distance to your foe, while maybe having him stunned for a few seconds, your healing skill can give you the upper hand.

Racial skills were not available in the beta.

I don't think Anet lied to us when they said they have 1500+ DE in game. Hearts are not quite the same as DE... go and read KTR artcile, he explains the difference between them. They are DE to some extent, but they aren't true DE, also we got meta-events. I hope I'm right, because if  I'm not then we got only have 667 DE, that means that 833 events have gone missing :)

The renown hearts are a separate system and not counted in the tally when we talk about there being over 1500 unique dynamic events in Guild Wars 2. On top of the 1500+ dynamic events in Gw2, there are hundreds of renown hearts available as well.

These are two separate systems that compliment one another in a number of different ways, but we do not include renown hearts in the count when we talk about total events in the game.

Thanks for clearing that up.

But what about the square as can be seen on the world map? (Above skillpoints and under waypoints, top left)

Whoa... I expected the renown numbers to be included in the 1500 DEs... but now that's impressive :)

It is weird, how numbers work out sometimes. If any one event roughly takes 5 minutes to complete, then that are 7500 event minutes, divided by 80 Levels, makes 90 minutes per level, which is a target average mentioned before.

Which immediately brings up an important question: will there be slicing of bushes for hearts?

What is it with people and clicking? If they are dodging and not dying over and over, but still clicking, what does it matter? Check out the new PvP Mesmer video they posted. He is doing very well and! Bonus! He's a "clicker"!

I am not sure, but if you mouse over the greyed out icon for it in the top left (next to Mail, Options etc..) It might say Item Shop.

No confirmation though

yes, i know about that... the greyed out icon there says "commerce" as far as i know (i think it can be seen in the UI overview video). But the important question (to me) is, what the heck does it in the auction house interface?

Do you count every single step in an event chain towards that number?

There has been no confirmation of having a cash shop currency, also the icons are being mixed up, the main browse items tab seems to be the diamond icon.

You guys continue to floor me, you guys continue to do everything so right that it makes me question the rest of the industry save for a select few developers. You guys really are saving the genre and I think I speak for all of us when I say THANK YOU!
