Hi, just curious if the ascended gear and Proof of heroics vendor will be properly updated for the upcoming expansion.

Will we get immediate access to new sigils, runes, recipes, hero points, and stat combinations on ascended gear?

Also, can you please add skirmish chest tab to the Permanent Portable Provisioner?

I would be highly surprised if all of the mechanical PoF elements were available immediately through tokens earned in wvw before the expansion. That’s a real good way to get the pve’ers to rage and from a design perspective I doubt Anet wants to introduce an element that’ll have a good chunk of their players ignore all of the content required to earn all of the new rewards and instead earn them instantly.

That said I hope they allow all of the new content to be eventually obtainable through wvw with the existing tokens and not a new type of currency.

Yea it took awhile before some of the HoT rune/sigil became available. Proof of heroics was in the game at the start of HoT since wvw need away to earn their elites. I am hopefully for a PoF vendor.

I wish they would. I just do not care to do all the PvE content right away. To me PvE is fairly boring most of the time. I know they probably want people to play the new maps and what not, but I would prefer to stay in WvW.

You don’t have to grind all of PoF, this will work the same as with HoT which is good. This way you can still get all this stuff done through wvw, and nobody can simply have immediate access to everything which would be unfair to those with many thousands of Proofs of heroics.

Thank you for this information.

After PoF releases, will Proof of Heroics still be available to buy HoT sigils, runes, recipes, and hero points at the current exchange rates?

There are players with many thousands of unspent Proofs of Heroics and there will be new HoT purchasers that would like to buy HoT goods and hero points…

I have many characters that I have not bothered to spent Proof of Heroics on and that have not gained their HoT skills. Should I consider spending them now or after PoF releases..

If past experiences teaches me anything, it’s likely that this system will change a lot more than we are currently being told.

No, the hero points already earned will be useful. The proof of heroics will not be.

Just like world completion hero points could be spent on HoT specs, HoT hero points will be spendable on PoF specs.

So you did not waste your time.

And, in fact, you could even use proofs of heroics to buy all of the hero points available to them, and probably get pretty close to maxing a new elite spec. So even proof of heroics are still useful for this, assuming you’re as lazy as I am.

Yeah, I’ve thought about this and I really don’t understand the need for another currency. Why would you invalidate current skirmish reward chests and current proofs of heroics just to add another? If the goal is to prevent players from unlocking everything on day 1, then why can they do it in PvE? It’s inconsistent to make WvW-exclusive players wait arbitrarily to build up a new currency, is a waste of a new currency slot when a current one is perfectly suitable for it, and will also make skimish reward chests unstackable if there are different kinds. I just can’t see an upside to this implementation.

It doesn’t invalidate anything, the new chests only add the new currency. You can still use the current skirmish chests like normal. The point is that players do not have immediate access to everything because they have stockpiled on a currency.

Its can be tedious if you have thousands of them like I use to but its still profitable. Upgrading mats from t1,3,5 to t2,4,6 are the most profitable ones. It takes awhile to mystic forge those mats but its worthwhile.

I’m sorry but it was kinda obvious they wouldn’t allow proof of heroics to be the same currency for the new stuff. Haven’t you seen how they operate by now? They always create new currencies for new stuff so that you don’t horde and get stuff right away from release. Why do you think we have proof of heroics instead of like badges as a cost for HoT stuff?

Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. There’s no real reason to remove proofs of heroics from the skirmish chest imo, it would be better to offer both, or offer them the option to choose 1 or the other. So since heroics are getting flat out removed, there’s nothing saying they weren’t also flat out removed from rank up chests, though I really hope they weren’t.

I understand that the new chest in wvw will have the new currency but it really infuriates me that I have thousands of PoF and they are almost useless. At least give the players a chance to exchange at some kind of rate to get the new currency. I have 26 toons all specced out and elites so so PoF is coming out with new stats, gear, runes etc and my PoH are pretty much wasted now. I knew they would introduce a new currency but wow now I have to do all that over again. I hate pve to no end.I only do what i need to do to get to wvw. No interest at all in it. All I love to do if fight other players in wvw. Spvp….limiting and a bit boring but not without its benefits but I learned all my toons in wvw and how to fight except afte the tome boon lol. My point is this sure we can use the PoH for stuff still but with the new expansion whats the point? I can just rip them from my toons and transfer them if I want them. All my toons are geared the way they are for the current builds. I know things changed when the new expansion launches but now I have to start all over again as if the current currency no longer has any currency.

Bottom line is I am miffed they didnt have some way to convert the old to the new at a significant ratio at least. Or at least allow PoH to be used to purchase the new runes, sigils etc. I never did like the pve portion of HoT and to do it all again……simply not interested. Ill wait until launch to see if anything changes. Guess we will see……

It’s kinda odd but you can use the current Proofs of Heroics to unlock all Hero Points in the game and have over three hundred skill points for your character after fully unlocking all skills including the HoT elite specs.

This new currency will only be needed for runes, sigils, recipes and other materials. Eventually when you have loads you will use it to unlock the PoF Hero Points in order to prepare for the next set of elite specs. But that’ll be a year or two. So purely for items to begin with.

So the question asked a few times now is will there be a way to get Proofs of Heroics? The way McKenna phrased it it sounds like they are going to replace Proofs of Heroics in the skirmish chests with the new currency but I assume those without PoF will still get Proofs of Heroics in their skirmish chests so I guess there will probably still be an option to choose Heroics for people with PoF too?

Essentially:

Proofs of Heroics will let you buy Heart of Thorns Hero Points, and HoT Runes, Sigils, Recipes, etc.

The New Currency will let you buy Path of Fire Hero Points, and PoF Runes, Sigils, Recipes, etc.

The reason for tihs separation is because when you use a Notarized Scroll of Heroics, it doesn’t just give you 1/10 Hero Points. It basically instantly completes a random Hero Point for you. So, it makes sense to distinguish between randomly completing a HoT HP and a PoF HP, especially for people who own one but not the other.

If you played the HoT maps at all you’ll know that’s not true and that initially some of the hero points were either insanely hard to get to, or were guarded by champs/veterans that you needed a group to take down. So if Anet is true to form, none of us are unlocking an elite spec in a single evening, never mind “ten minutes”.

this honestly annoys me. For what purpose can PvE players unlock their elite specs in a single evening but WvW players are hard time gated? Atleast WvW players had to prepare to get elite specs on day 1 but now all that preparation is just kinda wasted.

Do you not read or something? You will still be able to buy the Notarized Scroll of Heroics and Notarized Scroll of Maguuma Heroics to get Hero Points to max out your elite spec on minute 1.

He is saying it’s hard gated (wrong word to use really), because you now have to grind this new currency from day one to buy the notarized scrolls that unlock the new PoF hero points. Your stock piled proof of heroics cannot be used to buy the scrolls to unlock the new maps hero points.
