#2358896 Possible reveal leak - Spoilers

How about a little bit of everything? There's plenty of space in Tyria for all manner of raids to reach a diverse pool of interests, while making things difficult enough to warrant endgame rewards.

That said, they will also need to be accessible to non-guild PUGs, as there's no shortage of small or diminished guilds in the game. If elements of the precursor hunts are going to be integrated into the raids, which is what I'm getting from their legendary rewards line, then everyone needs a shot.

And difficult content is all well and good, but we can't fall back into the hellhole of gear-pinging that was ever-present for Urgoz/Kanaxai, etc. in GW. Elitism and disgracing have no place in this game, and reinforcing the metagame makes it more fun for no one.

You realise that challenge and "elitism" comes hand in hand. In a somewhat gear and build depended game you can't just walk into challenging content with any gear/build and expect to complete it. If you could, it wouldn't be challenging anymore once you optimise your gear/build.
Aside from that, elitism even comes without challenge. Dungeons *cough*

There is no such thing as a nerfed class. You simply adjust your build and move on.

#2358309 Hi, I am new and questions for Necromancer

Posted Arkham Creed on 06 August 2015 - 08:57 PM

Okay, so first things first; your choice of race will effect the story and the look of your character, but have no impact on game-play. So pick whatever race you like. I like norn for a lot of reasons, and their women tend to look like amazonian supermodels. So if you're into gorgeous nine foot tall women with breasts bigger than a human's head they are a safe bet.

As to class...okay, no "hard" trinity here. In theory any character can play any roll regardless of class, including support. BUT some classes are better at certain roles than others, and in the current content (things will change when the expansion releases) support is kind of downplayed. Also its worth noting that support doesn't mean healing. Healing is a part of support, but your job will be more spreading buffs, removing conditions, and setting up defensive barriers than direct healing, even if you will be doing a bit of that.

Now as to the necromancer.....not the best support class. They can do it sure, but it isn't their focus. The more support geared classes are guardian, elementalist, and engineer, with all three having some of the best options for direct healing. Although again; healing is downplayed here and only one part of the larger support role. All that said if you do want to play a support necromancer you'll be focused mostly on removing conditions and will have access to an aura that gives your allies a life-steal effect on their attacks, granting both a damage boost and a little healing. But again, and I can't stress this enough, while necromancers can play support they are not very good at it.

I am very new in GW2. Nice to meet you all :D

Not created any characters yet (Still downloading the game).

I have several questions.

I like supporting role specially healing my teammates. So, I think necro will be my best choice. I know a little about races. Which race will be best for support my teammates+Necro.

I can narrow down the answer. I would like to build sexy female character B) . So, the choice will be from Human or Norn ?  â€‹They have beautiful appearance right ??

See you in game.


Oh, and welcome to Guild Wars 2. Happy to help if you have more questions.


And in case you think I'm exaggerating about how tall norn are...

#2358294 Having major graphical glitching after exiting 1 specific game

Posted Kamatsu on 06 August 2015 - 01:58 AM

Just thought I'd post an update, for those who might be interested - I seem to have located the problem... the launcher.

I did a repair and tried again, but was still getting the glitch/issue... so gave up and just stopped trying to play it. Decided to once again try it this last week, and still happening. So before uninstalling and re-installing I tried one last thing - launched the game directly without going through the launcher, and lo and behold... no more glitching. Tried again through the launcher, and glitched again after leaving the game after playing it for 25 minutes. After rebooting tried again without the launcher, no glitching... and have played it every day now for an hour each time with no glitches whatsoever.

Have no idea why the launcher causes this glitch, but it does. *shrugs* And as I said, it seems to only happen with my R9 270X card, not my HD5870... so I am completely baffled as to what's going on. But hey, I can play ESO now if/when I want... and that's what counts. lolz.

#2358071 Confusion about Windows licenses

Posted Quaker on 29 July 2015 - 11:01 PM

One last thing, Quaker: you said you once managed to get an XP OEM license used on a new system. Is there a specific support number to call for that?
It was a later version that did online authentication. When it failed the authentication, it popped up a window that gave the number to call (plus other options).
Note - don't swear at them. They'll hang up. :)
(But they did authenticate it.)

#2357543 Mysteriously occupied diskspace

Posted Kamatsu on 10 July 2015 - 02:20 AM

The hiberfil.sys & pagefile.sys are protected windows system files - pagefile.sys file is your windows swap file, while the hiberfil.sys file is associated with the "Hibernate" function in Windows Power Management.

You can see these files by opening Windows Explorer, click the down arrow on "Organize", select "Folder and Search Options", go to the 'View' tab, then untick the box next to "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)". Doing this will allow you to see these files. Although I'd recommend re-ticking it so you don't ever accidentally delete these kind of files.

You can see what your pagefile is set to by going to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings (left side options) -> Advanced tab -> "Settings" in the Performance section -> Advanced tab. The last section there is Virtual Memory, and this is what determines how big your pagefile.sys file gets. Click on "Change" and you will be able to see how it's set - it will either be set to "System Managed Size" in which case Windows itself is determining the size and changing it on the fly, or it's been set to a manual size.

Based on just how big your pagefile.sys file is... I suspect it's been manually configured. in which case you can likely save file space by lowering the file size yourself, or setting it to let windows manage it and then keep an eye on the size of the file windows allocates over time (if you really want to have it set to a specific size). Unless your using a lot of high memory demanding programs and/or you have very low amount of physical ram... you likely don't need a 16 GB pagefile - I have 8 GB of ram and have set my pagefile to be between 4 - 8 GB in size, and it generally sits at 4 GB.

I don't know how to change/remove the hibernation file safely - I have hibernation and sleep modes disabled on my machine, with power saving disabled/turned-off but I still have that file.

#2357315 [Answered] Do I Have To Use the CD's To Install If I Buy the Disk Version...

Posted Kamatsu on 03 July 2015 - 07:56 AM

Yes you can - if you buy the physical copy, you can register the key on the GW2 site with a new account... then download the installer from there and install from that. The installer will then download all the files needed for the game.

Note - the game is approx 21 GB big (at least that is how big my GW2 directory is), so if you do choose to download it... make sure you have the data allowance to do so (if your on a data capped plan)

As far as we know they have no announcements so far.  If they announce one, i'll post it here.

With gamescom coming up, and Arenanet having a habit of announcing major things at Gamescom, they may be gearing for another reveal and a possible release date.

#2356988 First Gaming PC (Around 1500 Budget) - Let's Discuss - Lots of Things To...

Posted Quaker on 20 June 2015 - 01:49 PM

There's no particular advantage to having WiFi built in, as opposed to using a separate card. So it comes down to convenience and price.

Of course, using a wired connection would be better than wireless, but that comes down to convenience also. :)

Note, btw - it may be tempting to get a more expensive 802.11ac adapter, but the ac speeds will only affect transfer between computers (if they both have ac). Your internet won't go beyond 802.11 g/n speeds, so a basic $30 b/g/n adapter will do nicely.

P.S. I've been thinking about the GTX-970, but I have to say that the new AMD R9 Fury X looks very tempting, even though it would be major overkill for me.

Prepurchasing anything is a bad move in the gaming world, perhaps even outside of it too. You don't actually know what you're getting.
