  1. Even though it has been adjusted for difficulty over the years, Heart of Thorns is still primarily a group-centric expansion. So do not feel bad - or think yourself a 'bad' player - for not being able to solo a lot of that content. Dragons Stand inparticular is basically one big long group event, which you will need to be a part of an organised map to reach some of the hero challenge points in the south of it. The easiest way to join a meta map group in Dragons Stand is to keep an eye on the Official Wiki event timer (found here or type "/wiki et" in you chat bar in-game) and when the meta i
  2. On a pack of skimmer gliding above and/or under the water as need be to avoid any hazards on the journey there.
  3. Seems interesting, I'm looking forward to it. I'm not enjoying the Drizzlewood and it's meta-or-nothing style, so I'm hoping things will be different in future.
  4. In 2 weeks time when you press compact by mistake come back and say its not a problem. I'm actually use to it already, we have it as a visual queue everytime, it's not hard to pay attention.It's a very simple change. If any of us can't get use to it, the fault lies entirely with us. But please people, continue to complain about any and everything, it wouldn't be the GW2 forums otherwise. We fear change.
  5. In a weeks time when we're use to it it will not be a problem at all.I think it's a good quality of life improvement, for two very commonly used bag functions.
  6. We tried for a while completing the mechanics, but it didn't prove very successful. This was mainly due to players simply not bothering to help with any mechanics even though that's what we were trying to do. In the end we had two good healers and decided just to fight it without worrying about the torches at all, and slew it fine. Which on the whole was a little disappointing, as it juts makes the fight like 95% of others in the game. If Strike missions are supposed to be an introduction to raiding, I can't help but feel the balance is still a little off. In the Boneskinner's case, I believe
  7. True, like most things it depends a lot on player skill. Those are good points about the Axemaster. You likely know this already @Ficus.7156 but each night champion in the canopy requires some sort of jungle mastery to be effective. Basic mastery needed: Legendary Matriach Wyvern: Gliding -> Gliding Basics.Champions Cotoni and Huetzi: Itzel Lore -> Mushroom Bouncing. Champion Axemaster Gwyllion: Nuhoch Lore -> Nuhoch Stealth Detection.Tetrad Champions (and legendary Spellmaster Mascen thereafter): Itzel Lore -> Bouncing Mushrooms.Legendary Patriach Wyvern: Gliding -> Updraf
  8. It does indeed sound like you may be having problems with the Defiance Bar. The official GW2 Wiki has a great overview of the Defiance Bar. I highly recommended it.
  9. There has been good advice given to you. Just to add what others have said; all the night bosses (perhaps excluding the Tetrad, in the north-west) can be confidently be completed with 3-5 players (generally speaking) so if you have some friends that are in a similar situation, get together and slay multiple night bosses, increasing your chances for a chest box with each one. Goodluck.
  10. I've actually grown to thoroughly enjoy the Casino Blitz. It's something a little different, a little less serious or involved, and a little less stressful. Yet I can still be rewarded with something I feel is significant (Amalgamated Gemstone). Sure, players can just hang about waiting for the Pinata to appear if they like, I don't really mind personally, I just go about my business collecting coins and other things I see along the way. Players can afk in almost all metas in the game and still be rewarded, I can't control that, only what I do.
  11. You don't need it, per se, but yes Spirit Nova (the mastery skill we get to use on the Boneskinner once defeating enough Fallen enemies) does a lot of CC, seemingly more than it's tooltip would suggest (I think reading the tooltip you'd expect around 300 CC points from memory?). I think you're right, it was development's intent to use the essence mastery skill against the Boneskinner, and I'm sure if everyone had the skill to use you wouldn't need any other CC to break it's bar. In the Aberrant Forest the ruins there are filled with Fallen enemies, right next to where the Boneskinner appears.
  12. That's true, but if only 2 or 3 out of 25 to 30 people are doing anything to the defiance bar, one has to wonder. ;) Yes, literally this is the problem. If more than just a portion of a handful of players would actively work on the defiance bar to break it, no one would have a problem. It's not that hard to break it, it's just people don't seem to care. There is nothing difficult about Defiance Bar mechanics. It really is time something was seriously done by development to force players to learn about the defiance bar, because sadly we're at a stage where we're actively encouraging players no

  14. All racial utilities/elites should be useful. We need to stop making excuses for development or otherwise by complaining they would somehow become super overpowered and game-breaking (e.g. the raid argument is not grounded in any sort of reality). The player base also has to get over this comparison and jealously epidemic we seem to be in; so what if some races have useful skills that others don't? Those other races will have their own useful skills for other situations. They'll just be useful in different ways. It's called variety. No one's 'missing out on anything', it's just different. The
