Exalted Markings is somewhat less useful, but you need it to join the minigames that are used to determine who gets an exalted armor.
    They backed those requirements out a week or two after the Xpac launched You need very few masteries to get through the whole story.

    You still need Exalted Markings and Nuhock Hunting (assuming those are the level 1 masteries respectively) before you can do much in the story in each of those zones. They backed off the poison one, but I don't recall any others getting pulled off.

    They basically made it so only the first lvl of masteries (Gliding, Exalted Markings, whatever the Nuhock one is) and then updrafts is all you need to finish. They took out the poison one and one other I've forgotten about now. I had already done all of it when they changed it so I didn't pay attention as much as I normally would have.

    Right, Exalted Markings and Nuhock Hunting are the first ranks, which is what Shortcut said above.
    I noticed them since I had to grind them out in order to progress.

    So he did... idk how I failed so hard at reading there. I thought he was saying there were masteries further down the trees needed ><

    Also as a side note to leveling the Tyria masteries... I get why people do the CoF farm, but that just seems super painful to me. I generally prefer to work on those by doing Silverwastes for awhile. I enjoy the meta there and it is very much more interesting than farming one part of CoF for a few hours.

    Well, I did mention that you would get Nuhoch hunting anyways since you would want to grind for Nuhoch wallows, but wallows aren't neccesary for the story (even though they do make travel in auric basin and tangled depths so much easier).
    Accusing someone of breaking the forum rules is backseat moderating.

    Therefore, due to its nature, backseat moderating will lead to nothing more than circular discussions.

    *added in spoiler tags because it concerns a claimed leak and some people might not want to see any of that in case it is true and they don't want to be spoiled -Arlee

    possible leaks of future expansion content n stuff. which includes new specializations, maps and mounts.

    note how there's no leak for the elementalist spec though. Since they had trouble squeezing the tempest through, i'm sure they're still met with a challenge as elementalists are already incredibly diverse.

    Since it seems that all images from the leak were deleted.
    For everyone who wants to see them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSNR-2BikpA

    I'm avoiding most of the stuff from leaks, but this is one thing that is painfully uninteresting to me. Hoping that either the leaks are bunk (the few bits I've seen are not great but, as I've said, I'm avoiding them so I've not seen most of it) or that it ends up being a lot more interesting than it sounds. I really want to love the next expansion because I loved the base game, but if it's HoT 2.0 then I likely won't even be picking it up : /

    Referring to the thing. They arent like traditional things in other mmos. If the leaks are two then things have specific abilities.

    Sooo much this. I fail to see the point of them adding that particular spoilered out item you're referring to in this game.

    I put the better part of 2000 hours into the base game (and that's paltry compared to some players) and maybe all of 20 into HoT. I'm not looking to pay 50 bucks for a glorified content patch, so for their next xpac, I'll happily wait a couple of weeks to see what the verdict is before I consider buying it.

    If You believe the previous leaks (which btw was almost 100% accurate judging by the screenshots), the new expac will be priced 20$. Well ofc it may be false and shit may changed, but You know, there is hope .

    Also the size of the maps on those pictures. Single map was like all three Orr maps combined.

    I haven't looked at the leaked stuff yet. Thought about skimming Reddit for it but seeing that 75% of the threads there currently are marked as spoiler since the patch just came out...yeah, avoiding that page for now.

    Edit: I see there's a link to the info about the next xpac leaks here in another thread, so I'll follow that.

    That aside, were HoT $20 bucks when it came out, I wouldn't have been near as salty about it as I was a few weeks after it had been out. $20 would have been a reasonable price for it back then, and based on what all they've patched in since then, it's definitely worth at least that much.

    If one goes by what's been leaked, the xpac seems roughly the same size as HoT, so 20$ will indeed be a fair price.
