Welp thee goes my hype for thus game...just sounds like revamp. Also confirmation that mesmer will only get a Shield. Blah So disappointed
It's a much needed revamp, honestly. The meta hasn't really had much change in the past 1-2 years (besides minor changes due to balancing). This could potentially shake up the meta (along with the new types of encounters we'll see in HoT).
The Trait/Skill unlock system is also far more sensible than the current Trait system.
