Is there such a thing as "Hard Mode" in GW2?

I have noticed repeatable hearts seem to have more veterans as I am on the way to getting my skyscale saddle.

    There is no hard mode. Because the maps aren't private instances there's no way to do this, it would have to be made harder for everyone.

    Its possible the hearts are scaling up because more people are around. The game will do that in most areas to make sure large groups don't overwhelm the enemies. (Although that can still happen with enough people.) Or maybe last time the veterans had already been killed or you didn't spot them.

    If you want hard mode open world content you have to make it yourself, liking trying to solo some PoF bounties or Orr temple runs, basically any even designed with 10+ people in mind.

    It sounds like you don't really contribute when you do that, except with scaling up the event...
