Fantastic news for anybody who has put off map completion, like myself. ArenaNet have announced that map completion no longer requires exploration of the World vs World maps. Which are notorious for both being difficult to complete due to enemy players trying to kill you and of course borderlands which are not currently available to your world.
ArenaNet stated that once the change goes through players should see an update to their percentage of map exploration.
Oddly I remember mentioning this to friends a few months ago, thinking how odd it was that the WvW maps counted towards map exploration considering the WvW maps lie outside of the games primary plot and exist in a sort of “any-thing-the-devs-feel-like-zone” called the mists. I never imagined them to actually make this change so this is fantastic news to me.
What’s your opinion does this make world completion just too easy now? And what do you think your map exploration will be on after the change?
