No, this isn’t about the great Seinfeld episode so get your mind out of the gutter! Not that i consider that topic to be in the gutter but let’s move on anyway. This is about mastery points and GW2’s alternate advancement system. I’m a huge proponent of these post max level experience systems as a way to increase character power. I loved them in FFXI and EQ2, and i love them in GW2. They actually made traversing the terrain so much more interesting.
I’ve been at them at a snail’s pace since their implementation in the previous expansion. Slowly but surely i’ve been making my way up the charts and finally hit a mini-milestone with my 100th mastery point. I’m not quite sure what the max is right now but i see plenty of players floating well north of 260, so i have my work cut out for me. Nevertheless, i’m happy i managed to hit my personal number and finally unlocked unlimited gliding. I know i know i’m far behind, but i’m getting there.
Getting around the annoying Heart of Thorns maps is so much more relaxing now. Coupled with the mounts, it almost makes those zones tolerable now! Actually, let’s not get carried away just yet. Get it? Badum tish? Bad joke is bad. Now i’m going to try and focus on Path of Fire some more which i’m enjoying so much more zone wise. A certain roller beetle is calling my name.
