I wouldn't say it's abandoned content...I see plenty of players around all the starter areas of the game currently.

Not what I mean. What I mean is Arena Net is no longer updating that content or those areas of the world. Of course there will still be players there; its all free players can do. But that doesn't mean Arena Net hasn't abandoned it. As I said; aside from a few balances patches here and there all of the devs time and effort moving forward is going to be on expansion related content, not the "core game."

It's one of the ways Arena Net keeps the lights on without a subscription fee or pay-to-win crap. There are numerous "exclusive" hair styles, face styles, hair colors, and eye colors (my norn druid has blue hair and pink eyes, because why not?) that can only be accessed via a makeover kit. You can get those -with luck- through log in rewards, or buy them directly from the gem store. Good thing is you can preview your selections without consuming the kit, so if there isn't something you like you can back out and save it for when they add more stuff. They do that every now and again.

Oh ok.
SO what is inside the HOT physical box? A disc? (So dos that mean you have to download another version of Gw2?) or just the serial code? (Why is the box big then...?) Sorry If im asking to many questions, just really curious, never ought an expansion pack before.

Honestly I wasn't even aware there is a physical box. That said, if it is like other games, you'll have both. The code is the important bit, but the disc will let you skip some of the download time and just install from that. Now Guild Wars 2 and Heart of Thorns are the same game, so you'll still need you existing files and be sure to install HoT in the right directory otherwise it won't work. Being an add-on HoT needs the base game in order to run, and you'll be using the same characters and all that. Honestly its just easier (though a little more time consuming) to just buy the expansion digitally and apply the code to your account, then just let the patcher you already have installed do the rest. Buy the game, pull the code out of your email, apply it on you account page, and launch the game, everything else will be handled automatically.

Its an add-on, so still the same game and everyone can play together. That said most players who bought Heart of Thorns are likely going to be in content core-game players won't have for a while, so you need to take that into account. Now as to updating the core-game we really don't know. I know there are some balance changes coming soon-ish, and you can always look forward to the holiday events a few times a year, but beyond that most new content is probably going to be focused on the new areas.

That is because they put the action camera in the controls under camera. You have to set a key binding for it then you can toggle it on and off. However there are some handy settings for it in the general settings under combat and movement.

Wasn't there either until this morning when everything was finally done. Now I just have to deal with my ping randomly spiking over 3000...ugh....by the time I get my new ISP set up I'll have missed the entire Halloween event...
