The Hylek & Masteries Systems Detailed in New Blogs

Posted by Suzie Ford on Apr 16, 2015  | Comments

The Hylek & Masteries Systems Detailed in New Blogs - Guild Wars 2 - MMORPG.com

The frog-like Hylek will be the stars of this week's Guild Wars 2 Points of Interest. Game Designer Andy McLeod and Content Designer Matthew Medina will join the show to talk about the Hylek, their design and how they will be a force in Heart of Thorns. In addition, Hugh Norfolk will be on hand for the latest lesson in the PvP 101 series.

Learn a lot more about the Hylek in a new developer blog on the Guild Wars 2 site and be sure to tune in to the Guild Wars 2 Twitch.tv channel tomorrow, Friday, April 17th at 12:00 pm Pacific / 3:00 pm Eastern.

In addition to the Hylek, players can check out a new series called "Hidden Arcana" penned by Anatoli Ingram and designed to give players an inside look at the "people and design philosophies" behind Heart of Thorns.  The first article deals with the brand new Masteries System.

Masteries are contextual. What makes this system different? The abilities you’ll gain through the Masteries system can be employed in content designed from the ground up. This provides a better sense of progression by letting players power up their character to challenge specific content instead of building generalized, stat-based power through gear and levels.
