Random bot vandalism. Nothing to see here, move along. Move along. --zeeZUser ZeeZ Sig.png (talk) 11:36, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

"Region"[edit]

In the mastery article, the term Heart of Maguuma was used in comparison to the "second region" which is the entire PvE core game. Is it possible that Anet's using Heart of Maguuma simply to refer to all wiki-defined regions as a group? There were arid portions in the preview, perhaps the expansion will, instead, be Maguuma Wastes and Magus Falls by wiki standards? Konig 04:02, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

It sounds like they will simply define Heart of Maguuma as an individual region mechanically and associate all the zones with that region in terms of achievements and mastery point tracks. Then refer to the core Mastery region as the all the regions associated with the core zones. If they are going to associate existing regions with the new zones, that's business as usual. We would push the "Mastery region" onto the Mastery article and list the regions associated with each Mastery region.--Relyk ~ talk < 04:15, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
I see it as mastery regions being a separate concept from map/explorer regions. There are only so many English words you can use to describe a section of the world's surface, we've already got region / zone / area. The only others I can think of are all of a geopolitical nature (district, county, province, etc.). —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 04:48, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
I agree Ish, which is why I brought thus up as pondering if the article is jumping the gun. Especially the recent change to the locations nav template. I'm thinking they aren't referring to e.g., Kryta, Orr, Ascalon when they refer to Heart of Maguuma. Konig 06:21, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm convinced the action will still be located in the Maguuma Wastes, with the Heart of Maguuma being a sort-of "mini-region" that covers all of the new expansion stuff. Ventriloquist 09:39, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Actually, in the PAX South presentation, Colin explicitly said "our new region, the Heart of Maguuma."[1] I'm pretty sure it's playing double-duty as both an explorer region and a mastery region. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:50, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
"Each Mastery track is tied to a region of Tyria—they must be unlocked with Mastery points gained in that region and can only be trained in that region. With the launch of Heart of Thorns, there will be two Mastery regions: the Heart of Maguuma, encompassing all PvE zones that are part of the Heart of Thorns expansion, and the core Guild Wars 2 world, encompassing all PvE zones currently available in the game today." - [2] That's what I was talking about originally. Colin wouldn't necessarily be meaning regions on a geographical (or mechanical to the wiki's recognition) scale. Konig 22:30, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
He is clearly describing the Mastery regions mechanically when he is talking about a Mastery track unlocked and trained per Mastery region.--Relyk ~ talk < 00:11, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Which calls into question what do the devs mean when they use the term "region" elsewhere, in my humble opinion. Konig 00:23, 8 February 2015 (UTC)


Missing core information[edit]

Region map image, connecting regions and history. Thanks! Veloncia2 (talk) 22:22, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Magus Falls[edit]

The area Heart of Thorns takes place in seems to be Magus Falls, I didn't see a location named "Heart of Maguuma" on the map. --69.242.105.146 16:23, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Everywhere I've found in-game says Magus Falls, even achievements and the HoT release notes. As such I've moved this article's information to Magus Falls and set this up as a redirect. Konig 07:41, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Feedback 2015/12/20[edit]

Insert feedback text here --80.41.156.68 02:32, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Please could we have words to the effect of "Magus Falls is the collective name for the maps from the HoT expansion" somewhere on this page please? At the moment it seems lore intensive and unhelpful to normal people. 80.41.156.68 02:32, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

I would think that the Locations section is obvious enough for what is within the Magus Falls. Konig 04:38, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Proposal to delete[edit]

This page got orphaned when the article was moved to Heart of Maguuma after ArenaNet renamed the region, propose either delete or merge contents to Talk:Heart of Maguuma. Recommending delete, not seeing anything historically significant on this talk page that needs to be preserved IMO. --Wolfie User Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 01:07, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Outcome
Merged with Heart of Maguuma talk page.
