Alright I'm in, I'm sold, I have my pledge in now for the $110 tier. I hope there's enough room in the safe lands for housing, because I really don't want my stuff burned down every single day that would get old fast.
If you are a veteran of Diablo 2, you will see a lot of similarities between GW2 and D2.
Lack of a trinity, but some classes having more "supportish" roles. Paladins/Guardians, some Druid specs/some ranger specs (tri spirit BM ranger).
The Sorc/Ele having almost an identical set of spells, even specializations.
Magic Find stat.
Grindy playstyle with repeatable "events" rather than tradition quests.
The crafting system (once maxed) in this game is identical to Diablo 2, except D2 had runes - which I think this game should bring along. (being able to make Runeword weapons from rare drop runes, etc).
This game, to me, seems more like a GOOD sequel to Diablo 2 than the innovative genre-busting game that would smash WoW like we were promised.
And you know what? That's OK.
I liked Diablo 2 - and I like GW2.
While ArenaNet was founded by some employees who did work on D2, I actually find that the game is more similar to FF7.
They achieved this in their animation, gameplay cinematics, and in some other ways within the personal story.
When I play this game, it feels like a culmination of some of the greatest RPGs/MMOs ever and not one single game.
I find it a bit curious that an uprising in posts like this have been present prior to the release of the garbage product that is being advertised in the above banner ad space.
Its a great game, i must be honest the trader being down so long is really annoying and its had a lot of bugs but its a lot to get right when you have 400k people playing concurrent before its even officially launched. Keep up the good work Anet. How many company's have the level of communication Anet have? F all. Its a one cost game so if you don't think you've got your moneys worth your full of it and there's a lot of other options out there. Cya later if your not happy.
"u suck noob, play a real class" I took out the profanity. But that's basically what somebody said to me last night while i was pvping on my thief after a long day of work as i proceeded to pummel his face into the ground.
Most of them also didn't thought they will get a 3 days ban for a few f words.
The account ban was unnecessary.Most of the players would have learned their lesson if they would have known that they ban for swearing (insert rules argument).
They told Anet that they had read and accepted the Rules of Conduct before playing, and one of those rules is do not swear
Frankly I prefer some bugs or queues over not even getting past the log in screen (not that GW2 doesn't have bugs from what I read on the forums, grouping problems, chat problems, sPvP servers turned off, WvW issues, issues giving out HoM rewards). Worst launch in years.
Well Im sorry but Anet should be ashamed right now. Their website still states the headstart didnt actually start. So this is just very bad management and misleading to the customer. I set an alarm clock to be in time and now my names might be taken because of an unofficial headstart.. wow.
They announced it on multiple sources. You should be ashamed for not keeping up
Requests closed for the time being as I update the list and get rid of inventory.Please do not post "just in case" responses - they'll be ignored. Thanks everyone! I'll be on sporadically from now until the end of the weekend. After that I'm moving across the country and won't really have access to computer/internet for a while, so get in touch with me (if you're on the list) while you can!
My mental list of people I can potentially help:
AMIX_GW2: will buy 7000 sweet points if they 'make good' on other titles for 50/50
SuLor: can get husband to 30/50 (+4 points) via 3 armor points & 1 valor (weapon) point
neoryudo: can get 35/50 (+4 points), 1 fellowship point, 1 valor point, 2 resilience points
mataor: can get to 40/50 (+5 points), 4 in valor, 1 in fellowship
Aeronite: can get 35/50 (+5 points), 4 in valor, 1 in resilience
grayskull8: can get 35/50 (+5 points), 4 in valor, 1 in resilience
Aesa: can get 35/50 (+5 points), 4 in valor, 1 in resilience
Vahrkis: can send some cash for skill cap things your way, as well as some hero armors
I'll be working from this list for now. I haven't even gotten through all of the posts, yet! If your name is on this list, it is up to you to PM me here and arrange a time to meet in game! Or, just find me in game (IGN: Illfated Fat). Also, it's "first come, first serve." Even if you're on the list, I can't guarantee that supplies will last!
Pre-release is in a couple days, full release in just under a week.
I have a bit of a dilemma. I've already got a couple GWAMMs and a 50/50 HoM, but still have hundreds of armbraces and thousands of ecto. I've been holding on to it for some unknown reason over the years. I haven't really played Guild Wars in a couple years and I'm starting grad school in the fall so I won't have much time for Guild Wars 2 (not like GW1 wealth would benefit me at this point). So... what 2 do?
It's time to give it away. It's just time. Consider me your personal bank, except the only thing you do is make withdrawals.
Couple notes & restrictions:
- You must post your Hall of Monuments link and preferably your IGN
- You must have at least 25 points (if you don't by this point, I'm assuming it didn't matter much to you)
- You must have the intent of playing Guild Wars 2
- Do not PM me on the forums or in game unless I contact you first or you're 'on the list'. No begging, no expectations. Not everyone may get something
- I'm going to fking lynch any scammers and shut this down immediately if I come across one. Don't be a selfish prick.
- Addendum: if you're going to ask for help on consumable titles, please post your progress on them! =)
When you post, I'll check out your HoM and see how many points I can get you reasonably easily (no, I'm likely not going to buy anyone a full Drunkard Title. If it's half done, that's another story).
I can has sum free stuffs?
Yes, you can has sum free stuffs!
Happy Guild Wars 2, everyone. May the legacy continue!
P.S. In case anyone wonders - I'm posting it here instead of GWG because the people on this forum actually show interest in GW2 P.P.S. I had to post this again because my last attempt at giving my stuff away didn't work. I guess I wasn't obvious enough D:
If you would like to whine, criticize, rage, cry, send me pictures of sad kittens, or otherwise comment on just how unfair and unjust this kindness is, please direct those comments into my inbox. This thread is for people who are requesting help with their HoM. The guidelines have been decided and that's that.
