I have completed the story, got 100% map completion on 4 maps and got all the mounts.
All 5 of them
Killed a couple of legendary bounties here and there and completed some events.
Please correct me if I am wrong but aren't the bounties the only thing that people will do once they complete the one-time achievements and the story?
If so, how can we even compare the huge EPIC meta events in HoT maps with these legendary bounties that can die in 5-10 mins?
Maybe PoF isn't supposed to "kill" HoT maps but I was expecting more epic fights in this "all about content" expansion.
Yes, the maps are fantastic, the mounts are fantastic too, bounties are a cool addition, but all these things aren't enough (at least for me) to keep you here for a long time.
The expansion miss 1 single thing - EPIC fights (meta events with squads coordination etc.). Chak garnet? DO you see anything similar to this? It was epic and hard. Even the mastery points are way easier than HoT - shame. I remember the Mushroom Queen and a lot more giving a proper challenge. Now you can solo almost everything. Isn't a MMO game about group challenges?
The beautiful maps and mounts had so much potential if they could be used in huge METAS, like HoT.
P.S. I like the game but I am very disappointed as I was expecting more. And I really hope they add some major changes to these maps very soon, namely meta events.
1. Faster reward tracks in WvW + 5 gold at the end.
2. Consider giving ELE rifle/longbow in the future elite spec which makes it mobile, long-range 1 target DPS.
3. More PvP/WvW unique skins/items/effects + give their legendary armors cool effects.
