Is it too late to switch from Herald to Renegade if you're already at 72% completed?

So, I just tested out a Renegade build and it really works well for me, but due to me being ignorant and did not buy PoF. Really hoping it's not too late and I don't have to do WvW to buy them from a vendor.

    If you haven't bought PoF, you can't play Renegade no matter what you do...

    If you meant that you didn't have it at the time, but now you do own PoF: No, you can't unspend hero points once you use them. But it's not really a big deal to go knock out a bunch of hero points real fast to finish both specs... Almost all the points in PoF maps are soloable and give 10 points each. The HoT ones are generally harder, but there are almost always Hero Point Train groups in lfg just zerging through them all.

    i realy want to help but i don´t understand the question.
    are you talking in terms of hero points?
    if so, you will get way enough to level each elite specialisation. Hot/PoF HPs give 10 Hero points for example. You don´t even need to do the core ones to finish all.

    Yeah, I am referring to that, got to remember to include that part, and I did do most of HoT's and some of PoF's.

    Wasn't asking if I could unspend them, since I read a forum about that, and yeah. HoT is, by some weird means, harder than PoF when it comes to HPs.

    You can just unlock both. The expansions world maps include enough Hero Points to level the elite spec they provide.

    HoT was designed to be harder. They made the ones in PoF easier due to complaints about how hard it was in HoT.

    Yeah, that's easier said than done for me. I really can't stand any form of PvP since, in my personal opinion, it's just mostly bragging rights.

    It is not strictly PvP. There are PvP aspects to it but it is not PvP. It really is easy to get HP's in WvW. It isn't based on kills but participation level. So so long as you are doing things that help your realm you are going to knock out HPs fast. Depending on when you are playing you may not see a single player who's not on your team.

    WvW is only faster if you've already been doing it and have a bunch of proofs hoarded... Otherwise it's insanely slower considering you can unlock both specs in like an hour just doing PoF/HoT hero points.
