In a revealing blog post, game director Colin Johanson outlines some of what the company has planned for Guild Wars 2 moving forward. It’s pretty big news, with major sweeping changes to several key systems. There will be new skills and traits added, adjustments made to the loot Champions drop, crafting is being increased to 500, and most importantly, Magic Find is being removed from items.
The Magic Find change is big, as it stops people from having to choose between better stats or better loot. Legendary weapons are also being made customizable out of combat, letting you swap between stat sets, without having to transmute the look on to a different weapon.
You can read a brief summary of the post, after the break.
