#2064781 Your Favorite Beer.

Posted Butcher on 06 November 2012 - 01:37 PM

Hands down, the best beer in the world would have to be anything produced by the Frankenmuth Brewing Company. Especially their Pilsener, which has one of the most unique, fresh, and crisp tastes of any lager I've ever drank in my life.

I've toured bars and micro-breweries all over California, Massachusetts, and Michigan, but the ones in Frankenmuth are simply the BEST.

So my favorite beer of all times goes to Frankenmuth's very own Pilsener.


#2077850 Is GW2 in trouble?

Posted Strawberry Nubcake on 13 November 2012 - 10:48 PM

Dedicated players are people that race through all the content as fast as possible so they can live in Orr.  They tend to bore easily.  Gee, I wonder why.

A not-so-dedicated player like myself spends time playing the game.  I take my time leveling and try to experience everything the game has to offer while working towards my goals.  I have logged nearly 850 hours, have several 80s in exotic gear and I don't have a legendary yet.  I'm not bored.  I'm obviously not a dedicated player according to Anet.

"Here's what we believe: If someone wants to play for a thousand hours to get an item that is so rare that other players can't realistically acquire it, that rare item should be differentiated by its visual appearance and rarity alone, not by being more powerful than everything else in the game.  Otherwise, your MMO becomes all about grinding to get the best gear.  We don't make grindy games -- we leave the grind to other MMOs."

  -Mike Obrien, President of Arenanet



Screw me for believing this amirite?

Well the gear grind has started, although it's only 2 stats difference, it will grow over time and within half a year we will have WoW 2.0

Amazing how far companies go to please the crybabies about lack of content, nothing is left of their manifesto after this.

#2074725 What race has the best story and most dev attention?

I'm not sure what you mean by this, the city, while poorly laid out, is the best looking. No other race has a glow in the dark option. And they are rather unique looking even with out that option. Those things mentioned have little to do with story.

Did you not like the Celtic throwbacks or the allusion to Arthurian myth? Those are complaints I can understand. (but disagree with)
is just that feels incomplete to me. and they are uggly too.


#2072523 Frustration in pvp

#2073255 Info regarding upcoming patch

Posted Bloggi on 12 November 2012 - 12:58 AM

Maybe I'm easily pleased. But everytime I log in, immerse myself in its graphics, music and gameplay, PLUS see all these repeated updates and patches, I can't help but think that I got an awful lot for the little money I spent on it. I'm not saying it's 'perfect'. Nothing in this world is. But it wouldn't hurt to take a step back for a moment and just realize what serious value for money GW2 actually offers. If we look at it in that light, maybe some of us will be a little more patient with the changes we expect to see.

#2049971 Limited Skills?

Posted Evans on 29 October 2012 - 09:45 AM

I see, but imho you do have that option.

With the exception of the elementalist and engineer (and those have other ways to have diversity) you can change up between a lot of your weapons. You do have those options.
No one is forcing you to use a GS on a warrior all the time for example. You could use a hammer, or a sword and shield, or two swords, or whatever! And the beauty of it is that no set will be vastly inferior. Of course, some builds will always be better, but unlike GW1 you can't bring along something utterly useless. Every weapon you choose is balanced for a purpose, and will always be usable.

You have a choice in your heal, you have a choice in your support skils and your elite as well. If you want diversity, use a charrzooka in stead of rage signet for example. It won't make you noticeably worse, but it gives you flavour.

It just seems to me that the amount of diversity in GW1 is being exaggerated. There were a lot of skills yes, but in the end very very few were usable and gave synergy. On top of that you had to go back to town every time you wanted something new.
In this game you can do that on the spot. Just swap in some new weapons or skills and you're golden. Playing a hammer is far different from a greatsword. Daggers and staves are nothing alike.

Or is it that you like the look of your character wielding that greatsword, but you don't like the skills attached to it? In that case I can understand that, but I have to say that it makes sense for skills to be tied to weapons. After all, a ranger in GW1 couldn't use bow skill while having a sword equiped either right?

(Sorry for using specific examples but it makes it easier for me to explain my thoughts :P )


#2049678 Limited Skills?

Posted Flaming_Foxx on 29 October 2012 - 05:23 AM

They've done it this way for a lot of reasons.
Personally I would prefer it if they combined the systems a little bit. As in - Had your first 5 skills limited by your weapon, but had a pool of a few skills per weapon for you to pick, instead of just being assigned.

But yeah, it removes a lot of frustration from the game. In GW1 it had gotten to the point where if you weren't running a meta build nobody wanted you in their party. This way the system is much easier for people to navigate and people can just jump into the action.


#2026560 Human And Norn Favoritism. Why?

Posted Itharius on 18 October 2012 - 01:42 AM

It baffles me why people keep making threads like this. More people are going to play human because everyone likes to play something they can identify with. Bruce Timm created Batman Beyond because Warner Brothers knew that teenagers wanted a teenaged Batman, and creating a prequel series to Batman: TAS would be too contrived.

Most people who play Charr do so because they identify in some way to Charr, either because they have an affinity for anthropomorphized cats, or they just really enjoy the steampunk/Imperial Roman vibe. There's nothing special about playing Charr over playing human. Especially playing human in Guild Wars, which more closely resembles the elven races in other fantasy MMOs.

Nor is Charr a particularly original race in itself. See: the Kzin from Larry Niven's Known Space.


#2010609 Seriously, how are people making money?

I think the difficulty is to make enough money, and make it fast. With 2g a day, that T3-cultural set will take 2 months to get. Not everyone is that patient.
So, 2 months is a long time???  I'd say everything longer than a year would be a long time getting...  I know it took me 3 years in GW1 to get my first Obsidian...

Well I presume you didn't play the original GW, then?
It didn't have raids either but even though the endgame content wasn't overwhelming, there was a lot more to do than in GW2.

I don't think there was a lot more to do in GW1 in the endgame than in GW2.  Half the game area was simply not fun to play because you'd get worse than rubbish drops/golds.  There were no more quests to do to if you'd done them all once.

On the other hand GW1 has Sorrow's Furnace (which is one of the dungeons I still love) and FoW (which I also still love)....

What was left was redoing vanquishes and missions...


#2007972 Dungeon Groups

Posted Konfuzfanten on 10 October 2012 - 10:22 AM

I have run nearly all combinations in a dungeon group, inc 3-4 of one professions and i agree with AngryTom:

View PostAngryTom, on 10 October 2012 - 06:10 AM, said:

The Profession is less important than how that player has specced or what weapons they use.
I will take it a bit further: if you got 5 good players(know how to spec, gear and dodge) you can go with whatever you like. Yes a guardian and ele is a nice thing to have in a group and will make the run go smoother/faster, but its not a must have. My regular dungeon group doesnt have a ele in it, and we are doing just fine.
