The Flexibility of the New Defiance System - Guild Wars 2 -

The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with a new post that shows off one of the members of the bestiary to come in the Heart of Thorns expansion, the Wyvern. Attached to the article revealing the Wyvern is the news that the Defiance System will be something wholly new when the expansion arrives.

Defiance will now appear as a bar beneath a monster's name if it utilizes the mechanic. Control abilities will knock some of the strength of the creature's defiance off, though it can and will regenerate over time.  According to the post, coordinated efforts against some of the worst of the game's monsters will be required, as well as the precise timing of those control efforts to continue to bring the bar down before it regenerates.

The post  continues by using a Wyvern's Defiance in battle as an example of how a coordinated effort at controlling the fight will come into play

Lastly, the blog details the creation of the Wyvern and how it was 'brought to life' by the Guild Wars 2 artistic team.
