#2345721 This is why Guild Wars will always be great

Honestly, this

is starting to rival Tasca's Demise as my favourite GW-related piece.

Notice in the controls that you could bind energy potions.  The blue bar above the utility skills was an energy bar.  Was later replaced by endurance.

I want an MM build that doesn't make me feel like I'm herding sick cats. More minions with even more interactions. Like shattering illusions, juggling attunements, or kit juggling FT, EG, shotgun, etc. Something that takes more skill than average with a big pay off if done proper. As they are now, minions are secondary to your own personal DPS. I want a specialization where managing your minions is your DPS and way of providing support.

The Death Magic specialization is a more complete MM line than the traits were. And, with other improvements MMs will be in a better place, just not where i would like it.
There's no doubt in my mind that there will eventually be an elite specialization for minion masters. But right now, the reaper ads variation to the game, whereas the minion master wouldn't really. I think that is what most players need to see more right now.

Not likely, been away for over a year now, and I pop back in every once and a while, but the game just seems to be deserted compared to what it was the first year.  Sad to see. '


I understand how you feel, but the megaserver system has gone a really long way toward fixing that problem. LA is more or less a ghost town now due to the Living Story, and most players seem to have moved to DR instead, and its always packed these days.

Ready your Greatswords, because the necro elite specialization for Heart of Thorns has been unveiled. Instead of relying on distance, The Reaper focuses on close quarters melee combat to build up energy and unleash a souped-up death shroud on its enemies. The chill condition will also be used in conjunction with some new minor traits, and of course, you'll get a fancy new scythe to play with while in reaper form. Check out all the details over at the main site.

Three down, six to go.

This holds a ton of potential. Looking forward to the PoI Friday to see more details.

A lot of really cool looking stuff on the stream!

Now to wait for the inevitable nerfs before release.

Because ♥♥♥♥ hackers.

You are reading too much into this.

Next time I see someone jump off a cliff for lulz, I'll make sure to report them. It's offensive to players who killed themselves.

I'm sure it's impossible to fix all the exploits. It's just the way code is.

Also, anti cheat should never be automated. Because when it misfires the damage can be much greater than a single hacker could ever do.

I find it in extremely bad taste to make him commit suicide before banning him. It doesn't matter what he did in the game, but leaping off some edge like that matters to thousands of people whose loved ones have died in the exact way displayed in the video.

Good luck living in a world where everything even remotely offensive is censored. You better not look at me funny, reject my god, be of a different culture, insult me, make fun of my appearance or disagree with me because then I'll be very offended... and you know what happens when I get offended...


Jam, I've read several posts of yours in the past and you strike me as a reasonable person with a fair degree of intelligence. Your heart is in the right place but there's a huge logical gap in that reasoning of yours... I'm sure if you think a little harder you will understand why.

In case you're missing my point - you say this video is an offense to those people who had suffered loss in their lives. This is about suicide but it could extend to many other topics just as sensitive. If you're going to start censoring that which is offensive, you'll end up having a full-time job on your hands and no one will ever be able to say anything without looking over their shoulders. If we want to keep living in a democracy we will have to "man up" and just accept the fact that everyone is different and thinks differently.

Of all the bad things in this world, recording a fictional character committing suicide is the least of our worries. Poor taste perhaps, but not the end of the world. People aren't as a frail as you think and here's an example - I've seen my share of homosexual-related debates that included gay jokes and other questionable, sometimes offensive things and, surprisingly enough, the gay people were more tolerant about it than their straight counterparts. Its like some people (who oftentimes don't even have personal experience in the topic) get so engrossed in all this "political correctness" that they forget they don't -need- to treat others like helpless babies.

Anet is a large company with regulations, guidelines, procedures etc. They probably have to deal with heaps of reports on daily basis, some of which are probably false. This is why it took them 10 days of constant complaining. I don't think they can just go "LOL BANNED" on a whim.

Also, some people absolutely suck at reporting a problem. Make screenshots, take videos, report with a sensible title and not something along the lines of "Seriously Anet???".
