#2114893 Can we return to the old lore?

Posted Briar on 11 December 2012 - 06:36 PM

I guess you can wait for GW3...
  • The whole game will take place during the actual guild wars
  • You will be able to visit pre-searing Ascalon and Orr before it sunk.
  • Kryta will not be taken over by Ascalonians and as such will maintain their unique culture - facepaint and all
  • The whole game will be a giant WvWvW with the three factions being Ascalon, Orr and Kryta
  • Humans will be the only race allowing for in depth storytelling and a wide variety of armor skins as the devs will not have to code for other races (I mean 80% of the players rolled humans in GW2 anyway)
  • The old skill system will be used; stapled on to GW2's action combat creating a high depth combat system
  • Monks complete with protective spirit so that the combat itself stays organized and not zergy

#1831425 Play Guild Wars 2 as it's meant to be played, with a controller.

Posted Zakov on 28 August 2012 - 03:06 AM

I don't get why everyone is so against this. Its existence isn't making YOU play with a controller, so chillax. Those who want to play with one will, and those who don't won't. Don't be kids about it.

#1889387 Tier 3 Cultural Armor too much?

Posted Noxid on 06 September 2012 - 07:31 AM

i think tier 3 is purposely priced that way atm as a gold sink and to limit the amount of players running around in it...

Tier 1 is like 20s a piece....Tier 2 is around 1g a piece....then Tier 3 is 20g per piece.....that is a gigantic exponential curve....

i could see 5g being okay....but not 20g per piece...when its only Rare and not Exotic

#2105074 Seems like we'll get a big content patch on January/February

Now i hate to do the whole comparison thing but i wonder how much content came out within 3 months in the first year of WoW? Bearing in mind that content would have cost players around 90+ dollars to play through.

Much less..
Not to forget WoW had muuuuch bigger bugs at launch.
But people tend to forget that easely..

#2073965 Ascended Items

Posted JONO51 on 12 November 2012 - 02:24 PM

***NEW INFO FROM ANET 14/11***: https://forum-en.gui...irst#post721451


Our Studio Design Director Chris Whiteside just posted this:

“I’d like to respond to concerns players have raised about ascended items. Please keep in mind that we’re releasing this as one portion of a massive November update that introduces and improves many aspects of challenge, progression, and rewards. With this and upcoming updates, we view ourselves as introducing large amounts of content with supporting systems and features, akin to an expansion pack, building on Guild Wars 2 through a series of live releases. So it’s important for us to be able to add an expansion pack’s worth of progression and rewards to support that content.

Our goal is not to create a gear treadmill. Our goal is to ensure we have a proper progression for players from exotic up to legendary without a massive jump in reward between the two. We will slowly add the remaining ascended gear items and legendary items in future updates to allow people time to acquire them as we add exciting new content that deserves exciting rewards. We will not be adding a new tier of gear every 3 months that we expect everyone to chase after and then get the next set and so on.

Ascended and infusion rewards will be available in both PvE and WvW over time, and be made available through all sorts of content around the world including existing content. PvP will remain unaffected to ensure our intended PvP balance going forward. We are also working on other reward and progression systems for the game that tie into current and new content and features. As you know we care very much about your support and opinion and are listening intently to what you say.
Finally we look forward to hearing your thoughts on the upcoming content, and we will ensure we share our thoughts with you on the experiences we share in the Lost Shores."

Chris Whiteside – Studio Design Director



With great challenges come great rewards. The patch will introduce ascended items. Ascended armors are "slightly more powerful than exotics" and can, in some cases, hold slots for infusions. Infusions will allow you to increase your character's power. Guild Wars players are familiar with infusing armor, although I'll be my hat that the process doesn't involve creepy Seers this time 'round.

Info straight from ANET: https://www.guildwar...-ascended-gear/

-Infusions are to counter a new monster condition called Agony, which degens health.
-Deeper into the new dungeon->Agony gets stronger (need infusions)
-Infusions acquired via mystic forge.
-Infusions can only be slotted into Ascended gear
-Instead of upgrade slots, Ascended gear has Infusion slots, and rarer versions of the items also come with additional Agony Resistance built into them.
-Players will be able to acquire Ascended Rings in the Fractals of the Mists dungeon, and Ascended items worn on the back can be acquired through special Mystic Forge recipes. (only back slot and ring items to begin with)
-All legendaries will be buffed when ascended weapons come some time in the future.

#2059696 The new endgame dungeon on 15th Nov.

Posted Gileas898 on 03 November 2012 - 02:54 PM

I can't identify myself with all of you guys who complain about the current dungeons being bad? Sure, there are a couple of paths that are broken but they already stated that they are working on fixing them. You can't ask for more.

- If you think mobs have too much HP, you are lacking DPS.
- If you think you get one shotted for no good reason, fix your gear / traits / pay more attention / l2p.
- Waypoint too far away? Be glad they didn't pull a GW1 on you guys (something I personally had hoped for) where wipe = restart area.
- Too many mobs? Just run past them, like you did in every dungeon and elite area throughout GW1.

I understand that ArenaNet wants everyone to be able to take part in everything they develop, but allowing for the current behavior / attitude among players in dungeons is just pitiful. When Arena Net claims that explorable mode dungeons should not be for pugs, and that they should take a substantial amount of time, and people are able to complete these dungeons in 12 minutes with 2 players, what's their credibility like for the future? If you tried to go into UW / DoA in GW1 with a crap build and poor attitude, you would get instawiped so hard on the first quest that you never dared set foot in there again. This allowed for an overall high quality in dungeon players in GW1. I really do hope that they actually dare exclude a large amount of the player base from the final rewards of this new dungeon.

A player will never ever improve if his poor play is not punished harshly. The people who wish to learn will eventually get better, and the people who don't will be left in the dust, QQ'ing on the forums about how elitist this game is blah blah blah - just the way it should be.

#2061130 Arenanet should start automatically merging servers now.

Posted Perm Shadow Form on 04 November 2012 - 03:24 PM

It feels as if i'm playing single player rpg.
Today, exploring maps for 100%, encountered only like 5-6 people.

I had a discussion with someone today, and we both agreed that it would be nice if the added NPC companions a.k.a Heroes back...

I don't think Arena Ner will admit their mistakes and merge servers now...
I think They'll simply reduce server transfer time to 12 hours or something, and make it free, always.

Maybe try dominating people in PvP with superior skill and tactics, rather than gear?
