When parsed out like this, the costs of what you get to what you spend in terms of Black Lion Chest Keys is fairly staggering. As a whole though, the actual prices and costs are next to meaningless. For example, I have a stack of revive orbs in my inventory I’ve never used. I didn’t even count the Teleport to a Friend in my gem cost simply because you can’t buy them at the Black Lion Trading Company anymore, and I have dozens of them just taking up space in my bank. The commemorative coins are essentially just 1 gold each, and the materials, which make up the majority of what I received, are frivolous, and I don’t believe anyone opens a black lion chest hoping for these “rare” materials when they dole out free Laurels by the dozens quite often, and heavy crafting bags only cost 1 laurel per bag. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2
Is it worth it to at least own Heart of Thorns? Of course; there are useful things in it that you won’t have access to otherwise. You’ll lack the Revenant class, access to Gliding, and a set of Elite Specializations (one per class). Path of Fire comes with its own set of Elite Specs, so you’ll have two to choose from per class if you have both expansions. They’re basically full classes that operate on a Heroic Mastery system instead of raw exp, but if those don’t appeal to you, and you don’t want to go through all the story (and purchase all the old content you missed out on), you are under no compunction to. However, I do feel like it’s pertinent to note that there aren’t tons of Heroic Mastery points in the Crystal Desert. You can always go back to the old content in Heart of Thorns and Vanilla if you missed them. Like in Path of Fire, each event like this you complete gives 10 points, which is so much faster than the 1 point from the … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire Review
