It is an expansion - no need to reroll. All the internet drama is coming from the fact that the price for HoT includes the case game. There are people who have only just bought the base game because they'd been led to believe they would need that as well as the expansion so they're feeling (somewhat justifiably) gypped. And then there's the people who bought the base game at launch or soon after who are crying that it just isn't fair that new players will get more value for the same money spent on the expansion than they got, conveniently ignoring the three years of playing the original GW2 that they've had and the new folks won't have had. People in this second category I have very little sympathy for.

That should keep most people happy but of course there are always some people who are never pleased.

The big pre-HoT update landed yesterday. There's a new rebuilt Lions Arch that's worth taking s look at, traits have been reworked into specialisations, conditions now stack to infinity and beyond (well to 1500 stacks) making them useful for group content, and Engineers got some love - there's now a F5 tool belt skill based on your elite skill and the Mortar has been replaced by a mortar kit that gives you a hand-held artillery piece that puts the grenade kit to shame. The F5 skill for mortar kit is called "Orbital Strike" :)

I haven't even had the game installed for at least eighteen months. I'm downloading it now to take a look but I'll have forgotten how to play it. My main is an Engineer though so looking forward to trying the Orbital Strike. I hope it's like the Archeage Meteor strike which was a massive AOE attack.

And apparently Anet have already needed the mortar kit damage to below that of grenades (albeit with longer range) Probably needed it, I was laying waste to grawl in Frostgorge Sound last night, and every engineer I saw was spamming mortar shells right, left and centre.

One tip - don't try the LA karka Safari unless you handle frustration well. 6 down, 44 to go...

Just been catching up with the news about the Expansion.  I will very likely be getting it and returning to Tyrian.

Great news Breg. Will be doing likewise and have pre-ordered the expansion.

Nice one Breg also doing the same as well so with Sick and Carl getting it we hopefully can get together for some new GW2 like the old days ;)
