I don't have the link to hand, but apparently Colin has nixed the idea of a completely new weapon class, including polearms, land spears, or however, with an observation along the lines that "we warned the art team that people would draw unintended conclusions from the cinematics and they went ahead anyway".

That was a warning to the art team, who insisted they design a greatsword/spear like a polearm.

In Topic: Was level 80 cap, and Ascended a mistake?

Yesterday, 05:07 PM

Short answer:  No.

Long answer:  Ascended, an armor grade more difficult to achieve, is a good idea and a good incentive for players.  The implementation, however, was terrible.  Introducing the weapons, then the crafting materials, then armor, which one could only get through grind.  However, since they became part of the Living Story mastery rewards, and since they can be achieved in many other, non RNG means (collections, fractals), I'm a fan.

Imagine just where we would be now if they started with expansions....

According to Colin, Heart of Thorns has been in development with majority focus for the past year.  That means we'd just have released the expansion, and had a drought of 1.5 years.

On another thread, somebody confirmed you can switch back and forth.  I need to read the actual transcript.



Yes, which will be quite cool once they start adding multiple Specializations to each profession!

In an interview with peachy, Colin confirmed you can switch between default and a specialization when out of combat.  HoT will provide one specialization per profession, and he mentions it's much easier now to add this content than before.
