    Silverwastes is for central tyria mastery xp and wont contribute to your glider. If you select the story for Heart of Thorns in your story journal, it'll pop up a green star in the fort and you will be led into the maps to start your journey. You can start earning Heart of Thorns masteries (eg gliding) once you enter those maps to the west

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    Hero points. Note that elite specs require 10x the points as core specs to unlock. However, hero point challenges in expansion maps are worth 10x as much. So look for those hero points marked on the expansion maps. Also note that PoF HPs are more solo-friendly as the HoT HPs often spawn champions. But hero point trains that run a big squad through HoT for hero points are also a thing, so keep an eye out for that.

    Alternatively, WvW/PvP grants currencies which may be exchanged to unlock hero points, although this is probably going to be the slower route.

  • ahhh thanks

    good to know they give 10 now, was dreading idea of grinding 1 hero point per go

  • Randulf.7614Randulf.7614 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The good thing is that whilst mastery points are specific to the region you are in, hero points from any region in the game can contribute to any elite spec you like.

  • yeh it confused me abit, got to 4 and bar stopped again lol.

    running around crystal desert now, but havent seen any hero challenge in area

  • TheQuickFox.3826TheQuickFox.3826 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Also, as this will be your first time in Heart of Thorns, please be prepared for this.

    ;)

    It's probably not as bad as it was back then, but still. Be aware that the difficulty is a bit higher here than in the base game. In contrast, Path of Fire will be a bit easier. (Difficulty level of PoF is between the base game and HoT)

    Ascalon Will Prevail!

    Have you tried asking in map chat for help? There are often mesmers in the map who could help port you to the point. I've found people very helpful when I've been stuck. My only warning here is don't ask for help during a meta event on the map.

  • its ok im getting there slowly

    atm having break from my engi and leveling up a mesmer as flamethroweer while survivable was tad slow with 1 1 1 1 1

    By the way, for future reference (if you ever get around playing WvW): you can also do Hero Challenges by simply buying them on WvW maps at the respective vendor which will spare you of having to actually do them.

  • yeh that will help a ton.. i got to a silly point that i needed the big raptor jump to reach points and hero challenges, but couldnt reach them without said jump :pensive:

    its all good though, having fun on mesmer, which used to be my old favorite, before i had to get new account and the mount and glider are helping lots.

  • Sounds like you're off to a good start. Having a mount will make exploring and roaming a much faster activity. When you decide to venture into Verdant Brink to unlock Gliding, that'll open up a whole new world of convenience as well (not to mention more easy Hero Points to commune with).

  • got the glider, but only at its start lev. has saved my mesmer few long trips and is great for getting some of the high vistas

  • voltaicbore.8012voltaicbore.8012 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Good call on doing PoF masteries before hitting HoT. While the story ends up a bit out of order (this is assuming you skipped everything after getting the glider and went straight to PoF after that), having raptor with the long jump and the springer with the high jump is an amazing tool for being in the jungle.

    Let me know (via whisper or mail) anytime you want a hand reaching masteries or HPs. If I'm on and not in a pvp match, I'll gladly help you. In fact, you'll be helping me! I've been looking for ways to feel more excited about playing again, and I feel like being more helpful will go a long way with that.

  • i see you play scrapper i recomend this builds, may help you play safe while not much skill needed

    • The Griffon requires completing the PoF story. You can then access a series of collections which involve a mix of content including group, solo and a total of 250g. The Griffon is similar to the glider, but has a huge speed boost when combined with an air dive
    • The Skyscale collection is unlocked after LS4 Ep6 is completed. You then have to do a series of long collection quests (mostly solo stuff) and accumulate a large amount of LS4 currencies - ie currencies from all 6 LS4 episodes and maps. From scratch it will take a few weeks for most players. The Skyscale is a more true flying mount as it hovers and can fly up/down for a limited period whilst it has the endurance to do so.

    Basically they require a fair amount of time investment in Path of Fire and later Living World Season 4

  • ok got cannyon leap and lol now its saying i need a different mount to get up high.

    ps omg that point on quicksands a kitten

  • Randulf.7614Randulf.7614 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Yeah quicksand can be a problem without the mounts that counter it, especially as it's not always obvious where it is. I was convinced today my rollerbeetle could max speed boost across a patch in Elon Riverlands

    I was wrong

  • so apparently i need a springer mount to continue story.. guide i saw says it requires an optional area

    what does it meen optional? are there areas i cant go even after buying both expansions?

  • Randulf.7614Randulf.7614 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Springer is in the desert highlands. The story will guide you there. You can access it now you have canyon jumping on your raptor and will get it from the heart vendor.

    The springer allows you to access higher platforms as it has a high vertical leap which you need for certain parts of the story

  • thanks got the springer and its already let me reach 5 mastery points

    You'll get that one easily once you have the skimmer mount. Just come back for it. It'll be there, waiting for you.

  • doh me again

    so got mesmer to 80, gained 3 more mastery levels, but cant seem to train my chrono or other one.

    what am i missing please?

  • doh seems me saving lots of points was pointless. found out all skills have to be maxed first

  • kharmin.7683kharmin.7683 Member ✭✭✭✭

    And the elite track needs to be the bottom one.
