ArenaNet makes sweeping changes to their popular MMO.
ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2 is seemingly the MMORPG that just keeps on giving. The developer has outlined a host of nw content and changes incoming with its new April Feature pack, with 40 new Traits, a revamped system to streamline learning them and changes to the wardrobe system (which you can check out here). The developer has also sought to change the Runes and Sigils system along with providing some new balances.
For the Traits, ArenaNet wrote that, “As part of this approach to making traits more approachable, we’ve pushed back the level at which the different trait tiers unlock for new characters in order to better pace the early game experience and to add more meaningful character progression from levels 30 to 80. Starting with this feature pack, new characters will unlock the adept tier at level 30, the master tier at level 60, and the grandmaster tier at level 80.”
“All major traits will be locked on characters created after the feature pack. All existing characters created before this feature pack will have all previously existing major traits unlocked.
“We want it to be much easier to experiment with and learn new builds as you explore the world of Tyria. Major traits will now be unlocked via traits guides, a new in-game item. Double-clicking on a trait guide will unlock its associated trait. You can find trait guides by completing specific content in the world, like story dungeons, minidungeons, WvW, personal story, specific bosses, and discovering certain areas on the world map.”
