Taunt will transform PvE

20 February 2015 - 04:36 PM


Not sure if Lewis B posts here anymore, but saw this on Tentonhammer.

IMO, Taunt will only change PVE if Anet makes it a requirement to have in your party...  Which would require a complete rework of PvE encounters, no?

Disappointing points of interest

I thought last weeks was bad, but there was literally no new information about HoT.

And watching someone fall to their death over and over while gliding?  Probably not the best way to sell your new game.

At this point, all we have seen is Gliding (basically updated jumping puzzle with endurance bar that requires Mastery points to unlock), and burning vines as an Adventure.

PAX better be freakin' awesome, because so far I am not impressed.  

The Mastery System

Mastery system replaces levels after 80.  Players will automatically get Mastery points for achievements made before HoT.  Exclusive to those that own HoT.  Masteries are unlocked on whole Account (one & done?)

The ability to spend points will be unlocked at level 80, but you can earn points before level 80.

Some achievements that reward Mastery points are Map completion, so looks like I will be working on that (and crafting) before HoT.

Sounds....  Interesting.

IGN on Itzel race and Mastery systemk

03 February 2015 - 07:23 PM


One way to earn mastery is through meeting a new race and learning their language.

A little worried about needing Masteries to defeat certain monsters:  is this like infusion for the regular game?

Looks like there is a new video too, that I cannot post from my phone.

“With combat, it’ll be more like a reveal like you might see in a game like Zelda where there’s a feeling like wow, I got this tool and now I remember when I was trying to fight this creature before I couldn't get past this one ability; this tool clearly tells me this is the key to that lock and now I'm going to open it,” adds Mastery design lead Crystin Cox. "

And there is a screenshot of...  Wait for it... Mastery of Mushroom jumping!

I wonder if the Itzel is that race from the trailer with the golden armor...  Or a frog race like the Hylek.
