Exploration rewards

This is new to me, might not be to everyone. If you achieve 100% completion in a zone (all waypoints, skillpoints, hearts filled, etc), you get a piece of mail sent to you from the ‘Tyrian Explorers Society’ that contains a weapon, armor, and stack of crafting material, and coins.

Neat.

Can't confirm either but it sounds like there's some kind of achievement tied to it as well. If I get on the stress test later tonight I'll try and dig it up.

I was so happy when I first launched the game during BWE and noticed the point's of interest on the map.
Now getting 100% can be enjoyable and not be a total scraping chore like GW!

Sell 'em to someone who can use them. They're not bound or anything.

That's kinda cool...
I didn't know about this one either: You can’t trade directly with other players. Instead, you can simply mail the item to them!

That, however, isn't too cool. I mean, mailing an item is alright, but it's a bit inconvenient if they're right next to you...I wonder if there's a mailing fee based on how expensive the item is too :\

Nice! I have not tried this. I feel like the exploration is a thing that GW2 nails. You really want to explore and go to all the different parts of the map. I found myself even going to other starting areas finding new way points, points of interest, and skill points, which also all give a decent amount of XP. And with the downleveling, even lower level new maps do not feel completely pointless if you want to do the dynamic events there.

I made It my goal to get 100% in wayfarer foothills (Lvl 17 Norn Thief), and I achieved it. :D I got myself a fabulous new pistol, which I sadly didn't get to test. But it had good stats!

This gives the completionist in me a classy boner.
