The expansion is just 4x grindy maps with lots of walls preventing you to progress until you grind enough exp to level up to climb over those barriers and a new 10 man raid dungeon.
The expansion ish obviously rushed. There is notch enough content sho they need to build in EXP/Achievement walls.

The raid dungeon ish notch even available on release despite being promised, it was released later on as an add on.

But gliding ish fun and the new specs are relatively nice. The map mechanics are not too bad either.

Bought my expansion for less than 50sgd before it came out from fr.games planet.com

Its always on sale from third party sites. I wouldn't recommend it because its Grindy and not fun.

For me I leveled up masteries quickly from champion spider farming 2-4 million exp per hour. But now is patched. Normal way of leveling is 500k exp per hour. Also you need lots of mastery points. Around 70+ points are easy to get, the rest is only available from doing story achievements - most of the time achievable by finding other players.

Main problem about expansion isnt about grinding... But the lack of content once you finish HOT personal story in a week.

They have nerfed dungeons (which offer 20+ paths and 50gold reward per day). Next alternative is doing fractals... However they reduced reward for that too... Ascended equipment (weapon/armor) used to drop once a week, and rings daily. Now very hard to get both

The end game content is raids... But you need full ascended gear to do and they increased material requirements making it wayyy more expensive than it used to be. Rewards for raids are locked to once per week (unlike dungeons previously every day reset)

So if you need money what can you do?

Do an optimal mining/logging/harvesting and make ascended materials like spirit wood plank/ bolt of damask/ elonian leather to sell. That's about 20+gold for 2h of boring work

Alternatively you can farm fractals level 40. On a good team you can get up to 40 gold an hour

In the end, if you need money, you don't need expansion its a gold sink

Quit long time back. This game didn't pull me like gw1 did. Gw1 forced teamwork and had a better community.

The Charter Vanguard guild which is part Singaporean, is still active. Celebrating our 12th Year Anniversary this Sunday, and going to start up a raid team specifically for Oceanic/SEA timezones. Our NA Raid teams have already been quite successful, and they want to teach SEA their builds and strategies. You're welcome to join if you'd like to take part in this newly forming team. Just need to apply on the forum.



Also, we have twice a week missions, twice a week role-play sessions and are beginner friendly if you're new to GW2.

Hi there, I'm new to this game and i'm trying it out using the free trial.
May I know if the server choice is important?
Will I be able to port my chars to other servers should the need arises in the future?

And normally what servers you local GW2 players plays in?

Server matters for WvW.


[TIME] is still alive and recruiting, we have online count ranging from 50 to 100! 90% rep.

We are in Henge of Denravi and does WvW there - Herald / Chrono / Guardian / Berserker / Necro / Tempest / Scrapper

We currently have two active PvE raid teams. We are now forming the 3rd one.

Pm SkyShroud.2865 if interested to join.

Haha I recently bought HoT at 50% off too and am also a 3 years returning player. I'm in CD too but am currently in the guild TIME. Hopefully I'll be able to farm up a little more gold to transfer to HoD. TIME is one of the last few SG guilds left which are active
