AquaBR.9250 Posted December 2, 2021 Share Posted December 2, 2021 Just giving my feedback about the mastery system and how i feel playing Guild Wars 2 I really enjoy leveling up masteries, more that i would enjoy just getting my character a level stronger like it is in other MMOs, but i'll go straight to the point: Is a experience i only get for 3 weeks every 3 years, and for 2 days every 3 months. As getting mastery points is very challenging, getting the required XP to level it only take some hours, and im talking about 3 or so, given the latest expansions and EoD will only have like 20 or less masteries to level, that will be a fast experience. Taking an egg going around the map following a wiki is a boring grind, collecting coins around the map looking at a wiki is a boring grind, leveling and exploring in Guild Wars 2 is NOT a boring grind. The time consuming events you put around the maps are boring for one main reason: i'll spend my next 20 minutes defending this cow for 200 karma and 3 silver, only that, since after you level a mastery GW2 becomes one of the few (if not the only) MMOs where XP is useless. So basically i spend 4 hours defending cows for what? A S P I R I T S H A R D So basically, i finish leveling all my masteries before i finish even half of the expansion's content. HoT was kinda okay because we had TONS of masteries to level, 27 masteries to unlock PoF we had 17 masteries, 20 with griffon, like 10 less than HoT Icebrood saga is the winner with 30 masteries! By the looks of it, EoD will have 20 But the main problem is, the XP bar is too easy to fill, Xandrii said something about it "Leveling in this game is so cool, i just wish it was not so fast, i wanna do it more.". Leveling masteries is not even an effort, is something you do naturally while doing any kind of content you'd like, it just makes the experience more rewarding, and with a sense of progress while doing it. Now, in my opinion you could increase the bar for 5 times and still would not feel like a tiresome job, maybe will give some use to the 20 xp boosts i have laying around, and having something other than S P I R I T S H A R D S would also helps for when you finish everything, maybe some kind of reward tracks for PvE, some living world maps don't even award map currency for events, bunch of cool content that the game gives me no reason to do. 1 1 9 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
