In Topic: whats the point of level 80?

14 December 2014 - 06:19 AM

I'd say people who start years after a MMO is launched have a harder time adapting to a community that has already done everything. GW2 is a prime example of this, with its low content for a level 80.

8 dungeons means a huge chunk of the people you will be playing with have already done everything there is in the game. Most of the people doing dungeons are not newbie friendly, they expect you to follow them and know all the mechanics. I've been playing  since closed beta and I've never had more fun in this game than I did in launch, where everyone was new, everyone was exchanging tactics or even making their own in the heat of the moment when you couldn't pass a point in a dungeon. A fond memory is when I was playing Elementalist and we were getting our asses handed at path 3's burrows part, I discovered all by my own that ice bow was amazing for it. A new game meant there was little to no guides on the internet on how to do stuff, so most of the time it was experimenting and actually having a craplaod of fun.

I would say that that is your problem. You are not enjoying the game because the people you play with are simply doing everything in automatic more than to have fun. My advice would be to make your own LFG for dungeons and put "New to dungeons" or "Newbies welcome" or even "Learning run". Search for people who are playing the game like you, maybe invite some IRL friends and you could have an experience as many of us did in launch.

In Topic: 2nd Anniversary Predictions

Sounds kinda weird and specific but I would really like receiving a backpiece skin depending on your character class. All backskins right now seem ugly for me and none of them really combine with anything (my taste).

Something like..
Ele - Some kind of aura, little stones floationg or something like that.
Ranger - A quiver (I know there's already one but it's expensive as F)
Thief - A smoky aura
Mesmer - Energy butterflies or probably butterfly wings floating (Maybe a little affeminate for male mesmers xD)

In Topic: New GM traits?

The only interesting one seems to be the +200 power on revealed, I was thinking maybe D/D would be good again with that? No idea.

In Topic: If they came out with an expansion tomorrow would you buy it?

Yes, the thought of future expansions is the only thing keeping me playing.

Today's update buffed up this build significantly. Now you can get blasting staff with just 10 points in arcana. WIN!
