The latest episode of Tyria Talk has just been posted.  It is part one of a launch guide that should prove useful for anyone who has friends/family who are going to be playing GW2, but haven't done much of their own research.  Enjoy!

The 39th episode of Tyria Talk focuses on the issues I've experienced with my account since launch.  As of this post, I have no access to the game on the account with my characters.  Still waiting for support to help me out.  The video below describes the situation in detail:

A Rocky Start

The original post has also been updated.

Thanks.

Howdy folks!  

I have power again after hurricane Sandy ripped it from me and I'm back from my family vacation and that means MOAR VIDYOS!

This one is a Tyria Talk with the topic: One-Time Events

I also love that the freeze-frame of the video shows me with my finger in my ear.  That's awesome.  

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good episode Richie.  Nice to see you previewing the items in the patch.   I think it really helps people decide if they want to get them or not.

Hey Bog Otter, may I ask what microphone you are using?

I have a Steelseries headset but the mic quality is pretty bad. :/

Nice review of the laurel system.   I like the cliff-dying to get the achievement.   I went to WvW before I found out you could do NPCs.

But it is worrying that this new system is pushing people into doing contrived things like cliff-dying in the game. I did it too, I found myself deliberately not killing a mob just to get the dodge achievement.  .Sure it didn't take long but I've never experienced anything so artificial while playing GW2 and I don't think it was a direction I liked being pushed.  ( I shouldn't be going into WvW to revive players but to kill enemies although that doesn't quite apply since you can do NPCs, but the concept is still the same)

With such worthwhile laurel rewards, the game is actively pushing players into doing that even more.  I thought the point of daillies was to reward you for just playing normally but I have never completed a daily without going out of my way to get that one last type kill or whatever.   Now if I actually want to get those crafting kits, I'm going down a path I don't think I like.  

I'm willing to give this new systm a chance to show itself but I still have concerns.   The old daily system had such generic rewards that it didn't matter if you ignored it.   This new laurel system has brought such focus onto it that the little irritations of the former daily system which we could ignore are now getting amplified in stark relief.

@infestedhydralisk  I'm using a Blue Yeti USB mic.  It's pretty good and not expensive.

@Doctor Overlord  I hear what you're saying, but plenty of people were going out of their way to get the daily done in the old system as well. It was a pain sometimes to get the kill variety or the events done. The new achievements do require you to go out of your way a bit, but they are all pretty fast to do. Many of them can still be done while playing normally.  It might be faster to not kill a mob to get your dodge, but just playing the game should get you that as well.  I think keeping an open mind is a good tactic here since the achievements will get more interesting once you the subset mechanic is in place where you can skip the ones you don't want to do.

New day.  New video.

Definitely one of the funnier GW2 podcasts you've done :)   It was great seeing you put that bouquet to use.
