Topics I've Started

Mob AI / Behavior

07 March 2013 - 11:04 PM

I accidentally started a bit of a discussion on the AI / mob behavior in GW2 in a Question Thread, so I'll relocate the discussion here for anyone is interested.

So, the question is:
What do you think about the AI / aggro mechanics in GW2?
And if you don't like them, how would you change them?

They usually work (for melee mobs at least), by prioritizing proximity and defense, meaning a tanky melee character usually has the attention of the mobs.

It's goes on from this post

Thanks for the rundown on GW1 mechanics, as said I didn't play it very much and even then just with henchmen/heroes.

On your proposal:

What's the role of the tanky character in that scenario?
Ok It's too late for me now to write an in-depth post, but that should be enough to start up the discussion here.

Does fear still count as an interrupt?

07 March 2013 - 12:43 PM

Today I did the skill interruptor daily achievement and... fear didn't seem to work for that anymore, while I'm sure it did interrupt before, with the little "Interrupt!" message showing up and everything.

Worked just fine with the warhorn 4 skill and spectral grasp, but I couldn't get it to work with the fear mark or the Death Shroud fear.

Stress Test Orr Challenge (possible spoilers)

23 August 2012 - 09:48 PM

So I wanted to visit Orr, heard it's a very nice vacation spot this time of the year.
I can't be the only one who thought of that, right?

Sadly, I didn't make it and just saw Fort Trinity from afar.

So this thread is dedicated to other insane people who took up the Orr challenge. Post things you learned, pictures, videos, whatever you want. For people who don't want to be spoiled: what are you doing in this thread? ;P

Applies to other high level zones and new interesting stuff you found as well, just bring what you saw!

Some screens:

Loading Screen Bloodtide Coast
Loading Screen Sparkfly Fen
Loading Screen Straits of Devastation
Sparkfly Fen looks awesome
Hylek City in Sparkfly Fen
ANet didn't lie... there don't seem to be Hearts in the Straits
So close, yet so far... made just as the Stress Test ended

It actually isn't that hard to do if you roll a thief... if you can find a route without ranged enemies that is. Risen Hylek and Krait are baaaad news.

Too bad I didn't make it deeper into the Straits of Devastation (awesome name btw), there were warriors of the Orders fighting with Risen all over the place.
