Hey there guys ;) So when do you think you're be doing dungeons? As soon as possible? Meaning when you reach level for each dungeon? Or maybe wait till lv 80, play other things and do dungeons one by one? What about explorable mode of dungeon?

I'm probably gonna do story mode for each dungeon along the way when im leveling, probably when i feel like it so it might be few levels above the required level for dungeon. And later on when im lv 80 I'm gonna do explorable modes for dungeons that i want to get gear from. If dungeons are very fun to me and i  want some gear from them i might do that earlier.

So how you gonna play them, when and why? Do them as soon as possible or wait till later because it will be easier with bigger level? (downscaled but with more skills so it will be easier and you'll be more skilled later i guess :))

I plan on skipping all the roses to level to cap as quickly as possible, then go back and smell the roses.

I will try to do them when level appropriate and not downscale from 80 for my first experience with them.

As soon as possible. I haven't been able to get to level 30 throughout any of the betas so I will be trying as hard as possible to get to that level as soon as possible. But after that I'll be taking it slow.

Once they come up in the story, so I suppose around level 30.

As soon as I am level appropriate. Racing to cap has always ended badly in other games for me, and even with down-leveling, being higher level makes the lower level areas far too simple.

When and if there is ever an armor set I can't live without, either becuase of appearance or because of specific stat distribution.  Or when a certain family member wants to and talks me into it.

As soon as I hit max level, maybe earlier. I don't want to come late to the party like I did in GW1, where the only chance to experience elite end game content for a long time was to gain experience while being carried by a guild or friends. I hope I will be able to get enough experience in dungeons before the elite pug mindset of "lfg x-way EXP only" spreads.

Quick question about dungeons:

Seeing as they're downscalable, is there any chance they can be run by a 3 man group?
I can imagine it wouldn't be possible for a smaller group as you can never be "over the entry level".

Anyone have any clue?

I'll probably go through story mode as I become level appropriate. If my guild starts forming up for an explorable run... I'm sure I'll jump in if there's room. Did AC 2x in story mode during BWE2 and that was fun. Didn't get to try explorable.

I really don't see any reason to attempt a dungeon with less than a full team unless you absolutely can't find more willing players... unless you just want bragging rights. I'm pretty sure your drops would be the same regardless the number in your party.

I have 4-manned it twice so I was on my way to fully completing it 3man but the great lag of stress test 2 was too much for my teammates and we split.

When I'm around the right level. I may level past it a bit but not too far. Of course, that's for story mode. Depending on the guild situation, I may or may not do the explorable mode around that same time.

When I run out of other things to do. I've never really seen the appeal of being stuck in those sorts of environments for 3+ hours.

Soon as possible, everytime possible. Less time spent in the world means more time I can play in the world at cap with the build I want. aka "How I want to play".

Why, for making money of course. ;)

What do you mean? You think we get more money if we do dungeon with less people? I doubt it.

He means his 4 man will carry you through the dungeon for 8Gold.

I'm sure most of my guildmates will level up faster than I do. IIRC the first dungeon is rated for level 30...so I'll start as soon as I hit 30 because I'm sure my guildmates will want to do dungeons a lot for the special armor and weapon skins.

When I have a decent set of armour and weapons and that I am comfortable enough with how my profession works.

I'm sure I'll do them as available if that's what the gang wants to do.  I'll be playing with friends and we enjoy doing stuff as a group and conquering challenges.  If the word is that explorer mode is difficult, then we'll probably be trying that at the first opportunity.

Story mode I will probably try to do as soon as I can... Explorable I think I'm going to put off a bit, those things are difficult.

Ow, ok. I guess rich people wanting to get some kind of gear without much effort ASAP from dungeon could use such a service xD

probably when I find enough like-minded people to run a dungeon with...
I feel no overwhelming desire to speed through content to get to one, though
I am sure they will be there for a long time; I think I will spend a good bit of time in the lower levels before they become 'meh' to me
