Economic Instability Incoming & the Legendary Weapon Journey

Economic Instability Incoming & the Legendary Weapon Journey - Guild Wars 2 -

The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with a new blog post that proactively warns players of economic instability incoming with the Heart of Thorns expansion due in large part to several new systems put in place specifically for it. 

Some of the new systems include salvaging that will potentially reduce output to keep scarcity in play as a major factor in the game's economy. Salvaging rebalance will also provide more rare materials that should, in theory, "even out some of the variation of scarcity we currently have."

Some rewards are being shifted away from dungeons into other pieces of content, while simultaneously giving players unique non-transferable rewards.

Read the full economy article on the Guild Wars 2 site.

A second article on the site deals with Legendary Weapons and how they will come into being during Heart of Thorns. After completing the precursor weapon and attaining the Gift of Maguuma Mastery, a Mystic Tribute and a unique gift that has a direct relation to the Legendary weapon, players will be sent on a secondary journey.

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns heralds the beginning of the first new set of legendary weapons to be added to the game since its original set of twenty included in the launch of Guild Wars 2. The first three we’ll release are a celestially themed axe called Astralaria, an experimental energy themed pistol called H.O.P.E., and a raven spirit themed staff called Nevermore. It takes a lot of work to craft these legendary journeys for release, so rather than take the time to develop the full set before releasing any of them, we will be releasing new legendary weapons in small groups at regular intervals until the full set of sixteen has been added to the game. Collections for the existing legendary weapons will be available on launch day, while the first three new legendaries will become available shortly after launch, alongside raids.
