Just hit 65 on my necromancer.  ASk me anything.  If you wanna know more about GW2 and get solid credible information,  I'm your guy.

I hit 60 about early saturday morning

Going to bed.

EDIT: Also, other players hit 80, so apparently I suck.  Gonna have to beat them to 80 on early-release ^ ^

How are you levelling, just through following hearts/DEs/Story ?

I'm guessing there are not a lot of people to group up with for dungeons etc


Edit: and post you /age time pls ;D

Questions: what are your impressions of necromancer, and the game in general?

Did you come across lots of different armour styles?

Why spend so much time on something you don't get to keep?

(Valid question, of course it's fun to play, but this, you don't get from playing normally, you played a LOT)

How much gold have you accrued?  Have you used the Trading Post extensively?

Are you ROFL stomping lvl 10's in WvW?

Ratio of Mystic Boxes:Keys?

How many dyes have you come across?

Did every heart I found, did story up to demo end, farmed event chains.

If WvW xp buffs were added during BWE1 and I had known, I'd definitely be 80 right now.

Word of advice if you really want to maximize leveling.........killstreak bonus is your best friend.

Also, don't need xp boosts.  Saddens me that people complain about shop boosts and leveling in general..

1-50 in PvEland

51-65+ all in WvW.

I dont lose 1v1s or 1v2s.  Had a really fun 15 minute 2v15 and won yesterday.  People cant handle our lvl 50+ gold water weapons ;)

I throw mystic boxes away.  Dyes drop at an acceptable rate.

pretty much.  I guess you can say linear to.

A lot of fun actually.    Woulda had even more fun if I just sarted in WvW from the get go.

white and blue generally look the same.  

Green and Gold and higher give different looks based on level

If there were actually more people getting to 50+,  I'd even richer.  I got a ton of lvl 50+ gold items sitting in trading post :(

Ok so given that it's fairly linear, was WvW comparable (or even better?) to PvE levelling speed?

And /age of that char? :D

Do you happen to get all your gold items from PvE while doing dynamic quests and such? Or drops from WvW?

1. There was  a point were it was just you lvling in the zone, no? Can solo pretty much anything?

2. Did you do any dungeon? If not, then you got that lvl without grinding, and without exploring everything, wich is amazing. Shows you can do even more stuff for lvling, meaning no boring stuff.

3. WvW, knowing what do to, focusing on objectives, its the diferent between win or loose? We just had rings of fire with 100k points, while other 2 servers with 5k. How normal is that.

4. Getting that char without any craft, or few? Do the droped items are more than sufficient, or you feel you could use crafted equipments to help lvl?

Answer those you want, if any :D

1. what?  Best way to level is to find a balance between killing mobs while moving to the next event.

2. Finished AC story twice. Failed EAC a couple times on 3rd-4th bosses with random groups. Definitely fun trying to figure out to fight each boss in explorable.


3.  Siege Weapon placement, how fast you set up your zerg, knowing when to split, manipulating and killing their supply caravans, etc,

4. in Pve, gear drops up to 3 levels under you.  in WvW, gear can drop up to your current level.

props to chalky and polaris for posting the only constructive questions.

OP, the gear you are wearing, is that the gear that mesmers necros and elementalists wear? or is it necro specific?
