    Question about GW2 expansions

    Do I need to play the old expansion stories, or can I go straight to the new expansion story?

    You can skip straight to End of Dragons, but you'll miss out on the story and masteries from previous expansion (like mounts and gliders and stuff), plus the additional specializations they bring. You don't need to play through expansions linearly.

    Jumping straight into EoD is inadvisable. EoD has no transformative features like gliding or mounts that you want to obtain right away (unlike HoT or PoF). The only reason to do EoD content is for the story, which if you want to get the most out of you should do after having done everything else.

    If you want to play GW2 for the story, then you can through the 1-80 personal story right now, wait a couple months for the rest of living world season 1 to release, and then go through the whole story in order. Be warned that the 1-80 personal story and living world season 2 really suck but the rest of the story gives you a decent amount of fun for the time required.

    Story order is

    • Vanilla 1-80 personal story
    • Living world season 1
    • Living world season 2
    • Heart of Thorns
    • Living world season 3
    • Path of Fire
    • Living world season 4
    • Icebrood Saga
    • End of Dragons
