I just wanted to write this post because I feel like right after a big expansion there is a tendency for posts to be overwhelmingly negative, and I just wanted to let ArenaNet know that there is at least 1 player that that absolutely LOVED this expansion. I was trying to figure out why exactly it is, and I think it would be because out of all of Guild Wars 2, Path of Fire feels most like the original Guild Wars than anything that has been made yet. There is very little in the way of magitech, instead everything feels like a real fantasy. This isn't to say that I hate the magitech/steampunk themes that areas hold, but it has significantly changed the way in which the games feel.
Now there are many more incredible things I love about this game. Mounts are fantastic once you learn how to use them. The maps are incredible, and I have only significantly mapped Desert Highlands and Crystal Oasis! I even felt drawn and moved by the story of the game even though I personally hated the way in which it went with Balthazar's personality and motives. Heck, I even accepted the fact that I had to kill Balthazar even though it felt so wrong (I was Kasmeer the whole stinking time). I just wanted to write all of this to give a round of applause to the whole Expansion team. Even though it wasn't perfect, it was an incredible ride, and I very much look forward to the next Living Story.
