Guild Wars 2 is receiving a pretty hefty skill and balance release tomorrow, May 11. Specifically, the team at ArenaNet notes that this update is meant to relieve frustrations with boons and conditions. These include new duration caps for boons and condition, a rework of retaliation and resistance boons, and more.
Not often do we think of an MMO making a skill more friendly to being useable while you're not actively playing, yet it happens more often than we conciously think. RuneScape has announced it's reworking one of its least-trained skills, Divination, to make it both more interesting as well as more AFK-Friendly.
