Heart of Thorns: How To Earn Hero Points Entirely In WvW


Hello all, there was a post by Tyler Bearce on earning hero points by entirely by playing WvW if that’s your thing. So here’s a quick run down:

Gaining rank in WvW rewards you with Proof of Heroics that players can spend at heroic vendors for superior weapon siege blueprints, Notarized Scrolls of Heroics and Notarized Scrolls of Magumma Heroics. Consuming a Heroics scroll randomly completes a Hero Point in the core game while consuming a Magumma Heroics scroll randomly completes a Hero Point in the new Maguuma areas coming in Heart of Thorns. Magumma Heroics scrolls are only available to players that have Heart of Thorns. Players can keep buying these scrolls until they have all the Hero Points unlocked.

  • Combining 1 proof and 30 Badges of Honor yields 1 Notarized Scroll of Heroics.
  • Combining 5 proofs and 150 Badges of Honor yields 1 Notarized Scroll of Maguuma Heroics.

Liquid Experience Changes

Due to the changes above, liquid experience you get via some WvW rank ups, dailies and the laurel vendor are going away. Any players with these liquid items in their inventory when Heart of Thorns releases will get WXP boosters that vary in duration (depedning on how many liquid items were converted). The laurel vendor will no longer sell liquid experience. Daily WvW achievements reward players with a general 20 minute auto-booster that works in all game modes. Other methods that had liquid rewards will reward auto-boosters in the same fashion.

Good news for those who want to purely WvW and get the new elite specializations eventually. Some icing on the cake as we’re just days away from Heart of Thorns launch.
