In Topic: Worth buying?

04 December 2014 - 01:14 PM

Definitely. I mean it's B2P. So even if you get bored of it after a month you can always come back.

And I doubt you'll get sick of it in a month. There's lots to see. If you like exploring then it's a perfect game in my opinion. Completing areas and getting 100% world explorer, jumping puzzles, collect armors and weapons and partake in world boss events. You'll want to finish your personal story at least once, which in my opinion takes quite a while and they add new Living Story updates every 2 weeks so there's that as well. There's dungeons which all have a story mode and several explorable paths you can take. Also PvP in the forms of WvW and sPvP. And if you and your friend are achievement hunters there's definitely a load of those and accumulating enough achievement points rewards you with extra armor and weapon skins. Leveling an alt is always an option as well because I've found different professions to have rather different play styles or even trying out different weapon sets can give you a completely different playing experience.

There are of course downsides to the game. If you're a big fan of raids then closest to those would be world boss events i suppose. And unless you're going for a full ascended set then gearing isn't that big of a deal.

That's my opinion anyways.

In Topic: Do you still play GW2, and why?

Started playing again. Doing world exploration on my Thief since I don't have the 100% exploration achievement on any of my chars. Being an alt-o-holic I kinda switched between chars a lot, am trying to stick with one character atm and it's pretty cool actually. Kinda like having one complete(ish) char rather than having 5 that aren't even all lvl 80. Planing to get my PvE zones explored, then will try to finish my personal story and get the dungeon exploration and path achievements. Also would be awesome to finish the wold mini dungeons (the ones you find in some zones, like jumping puzzles). Still don't have all the crafting professions maxed out so there's that for me as well. In any case I'm still finding old content to still be entertaining but then again I've always liked GW. Just kinda wish GW2 had more links/references to GW1 when exploring and in personal stories perhaps.

The new living world updates don't really appeal though. The rewards thus far haven't really been anything I'd use or want to spend time getting. Wish they'd rather add some more zones to PvE. The map is still largely unused. Like the Maguuma Jungles and parts of the Shiverpeaks, Charr homelands and so on.

But overall I'm still finding lots to do. Probably because I haven't rushed trough the content and have taken it VERY slowly :P .

In Topic: The Perfect DPS Thief Build

02 November 2013 - 07:29 AM

I really like this build as I mostly like using daggers and stealth for killing but I have a little problem with it as well. I can't dodge that well. Which is something I need to work on. But since getting better takes time I was wondering if I could increase the survivability of this build by either taking Valkyrie armor (keeping everything else Berserker's) or by taking 15 in Acrobatics instead of Trickery, without reducing the damage output of this build by too much. Which option do you think would be better?

In Topic: Ok I finally made 80 today now what do I do?

Orr karma vendors also sell armor and trinkets with Power/Toughness/Vitality stats.

As for the dungeon, to enter you have to have completed the story mode OR have someone in your party who has completed it and have that player enter the dungeon first.

In Topic: How you got started

15 May 2013 - 04:52 PM

Got started when a good friend on mine bought GW1: Prophecies and invited me to join and buy the game. So I did.
I played Prophecies for a fairly long time and enjoyed it thoroughly. But then, after leveling a few characters to 20 I got bored of it and switched to other MMOs. I probably wouldn't have gotten tired if I had the other two games but at that time I didn't feel like buying Factions and Nightfall.
While being on my "break" from GW1 I heard about GW2 and instantly became hooked on the idea of someday playing the game. Unfortunately it wasn't until a few years had passed would I get the opportunity to do so.
Six months before the release of GW2 I finally bought Factions, Nightfall and Eye of the North in hopes of getting those 30 Hall of Monuments points for the fancy item skins. So when the GW2 was released I had managed to get 22 points. At that point I pretty much switched to playing GW2. But hope remains that perhaps at some point I'll get my 30/50 (or maybe even 50/50) HoM score :P

But that's pretty much how I got started with Guild Wars. I've had a few breaks from GW2 but overall I enjoy the game :)
