Even tho the new masteries arent the most exciting or cool compaired to glider or mounts, i gotta say, i prefer them alot more and find them alot more meaningful because they take longer ro unlock.
Considering masteries arent on a per char basis and instead are acount wide i always thought they took very little to unlock (same with elite specs), i personally viewed them as what could be the medium term (journey) unlocks for each new update and not necessarily what you have 5 mins into a new update.
I ask that you dont buff xp gains and moving forward maybe even nerf it by another 5% or so for all maps moving forward (old and new), masteries havent felt meaningful since early hot and the current xp gains kinda bring back those feelings. Just dont gate story progress behind them again like you did in hot and we gucci.
(also elite specs, maybe rebalance the skillpoints requirements to make them take at least a day or 3 or exploration and gameplay) we dont have to have everything the moment a patch drops, its called character progression for a reason.
