    Good news on most of the PVP changes, especially being able to transfer pvp skins to elsewhere. It's a bit vague what they're going to do with existing skins, hope the 'value' is that they can at least be transferred as skins only or recrafted.

    Being able to level alts using glory was leaked a while ago, it's a really good idea for a glory sink and makes it easier to go from pvp to wvw without bothering with pve. Also handy for getting people to drop into pvp if they want to skip a levelling zone / try something different.

    Unlocking new skills with skillpoints for pvp is a very dodgy change though, always liked that in Guild Wars 1 everything was unlocked in pvp for every player from the get go. So nothing to stop a new player to the game from jumping in and having exactly the same choices and balance. On the other hand, a lot of people are overloaded with skillpoints and/or glory, and with the new alt levellling I guess they had to add a reason for saving more.

    Uh, no it wasn't. You had to unlock skills and equipment with Balthazar faction or pay extra for a full unlock from the shop. It was account-wide, though. That's different.

    Ah yep you're right. I remember now with secondaries used to unlock builds really easily. It was the runes which were a pain.

    The warrior one could be great, a situational heal that can be used to heal proportionate to incoming blows is a nice addition. In practice it'll probably either be OP or useless, but I like the idea of a heal moving from a "I screwed up" button to something you use situationally when you are about to take damage.
    As I mained a necro in GW1 I despair that things like vampirism still don't work in the sequel, but retain hope.

    Been in Bath today, big smoke at the end of the week.

    I won't be online tomorrow after all, though, so no WvW meta for me :-(

    Ascended armour already? But I haven't finished weapons yet! I guess the requirements will be the same as for weapons, huge amounts of cash/mats to level. Wonder how big the benefit will be, and whether it comes with an infusion slot. If so it'll be an odd clash with the new exponentially increasing agony resistance mechanic.

    I joked in chat last night about Ascended Armor dropping on the 10th ... apparently I am a prophet?

    Anyway, 6% stat increase for 60g per piece and several hundred g to level to 500, I doubt I'll even try for a long long time.

    Right. No details though... I wonder how much of a grind will armor crafting be. I think that's the big question.

    Balance update's the one after right?

    Fab. That's going to be one juicy update. 0 new content, but quite a lot of good changes.

    Sorry something came up! I'll probably run some sPvP next week again to get rid of those boosters.

    It's nice that they're adding support to the necro with the new healing skill and the extra damage is welcome, but the passive on it seems really poor and it's hard to think of a situation where it would actually be good as a heal in any game mode.
    The thief one might open up a decent venom share build for WvW, will have to give that a try. The heals looked very impressive with the cleric's amulet.
    Defiant Stance is probably the heal I would pick for Lupicus in the future if no fire field is needed. It straight up heals you for the damage you would take during its duration, even condition damage. I'm sure it's going to be hilarious for WvW as well.

    Yesterday we got a group together to do some spvp and it was quite fun and we actually did pretty well. The bad thing is that you get more glory boooster out of it so if anyone wants to get rid of them like I do before the patch I'm happy to do an hour here and there.
