I've been a huge fan of HoT maps because of the meta system. I think they're the maps I replayed the most in all my hours in GW2. However, since I finished PoF story, I barely returned to the PoF maps (even though I think they're beautiful). The bounty system is not attractive to me and everytime I decided to go back to PoF the maps feel... empty. What is there to do beside the bounties? Am I missing some meta? I've tried Istan (I know it's a LW release) a couple of times and the Champion farming was too brainless for me.
I can't even find regular chain of events in the style of vanilla GW maps (and I mean not like 2-3 following events that feels meaningless, I would like longer chains with a bit bigger objective). Maybe it's just me, maybe I'm looking at the wrong place. But I would really like to play more in those PoF maps. Repeating HoT maps is starting to be a bit boring. I really hope the next expansion, if there's one, that Anet returns to a meta-type map à la HoT or maybe a balance between the two.
