GW2: Heart of Thorns

People were speculating that Arenanet would release an expansion soon after someone found out that the "Heart of Thorns" name had been registered by them, guess they were right.

Anyway, expansion announced, enjoy the trailer:





Very happy there is more lush jungle maps, I love those areas in the Maguuma Jungle section of the world.

The Mastery System
We're reimagining progression with our new Mastery system. Explore new training opportunities for your character beyond level 80 and master abilities like hang gliding in the jungle, tearing the bark off of heavily armored Mordrem, or building new collections that earn precursors to a legendary weapon.

The Heart of Maguuma
New adventures await you in the heart of the Maguuma Jungle. Confront the growing hordes of Mordremoth's minions, discover allies from ancient civilizations, and battle new enemies.
  • Tackle challenging group content.
  • Explore new open world jungle maps.
  • Experience new events and storylines.
  • Test your mettle in new boss battles.

Specializations
Evolve your gameplay. With profession specializations, you'll unlock access to a weapon previously unavailable to your profession as well as new traits, skills, and unique mechanics - all of which will transform your profession into something new.

New Profession: Revenant
Channel legendary powers to slaughter foes and unleash chaos on the battlefield with our brand new profession: the revenant. Enter the field of battle heavily armored and equipped with the otherworldly powers of the Mists.

Guild Halls
Your guild has roamed the world together. Now, it's time to claim a piece of it. Work with fellow guild members to claim and grow your own guild hall in the heart of Maguuma.

PvP: New Stronghold Game Mode
Gather supply to hire soldiers. Battle for control of heroes. Man the trebuchet to defend your stronghold, and storm the enemy gates to defeat the guild lord! Use our new guild team feature to team up and battle to the top of the leaderboards. Stronghold offers an entirely new way to play competitive PvP in Guild Wars 2!

WvW: New Borderland
Experience epic battlefield combat like never before in World vs. World's latest core addition, the new Borderlands map. Navigate treacherous heights with traps that blow your foes to the depths below and ferocious defenders to help keep the enemy at bay. Map objectives will be more important than ever before, as they'll unlock new strategies, tactics, and play mechanics that you'll want to use to your world's advantage!

I'm playing again. I have a Logitech controller all setup so I can give my hands a break - works great.

I made the switch from Warcraft when I couldn't get a controller to work well and I realized I hadn't left my garrison for 3 months.

I started over with a Warrior and so far at level 21 I am liking the changes I have seen - melee is still hard but no longer feels impossible.

Anyone else getting back into GW2?
