you don't really need to be a thief to do that.

pretty much any class can solo unupgraded camps

I'm not sure what this video is trying to show. I don't play a thief but see nothing wrong with that. Is there any class that can't solo an un-upgraded camp? I'm pretty sure I was able to solo them before hitting lvl 80 even.

Sweeping statements are so much fun, until someone that actually knows what he's talking about shows up. Soloing camps is useless if you can't do it fast. Thief does it fast and also has the tools to get away if it comes to that, all in the same build. Also, no, not every class can do it because for some the needed build gimps you in other situations, so it's not worth it. Thanks for trying.

Seriously? If it breaks the game don't do it. It's really not that hard of a concept to grasp people.

Water exploration is amazing.
Water combat is utter shit.

Well, the graph lacks every detail... what are those figures? Level 80 chars? Level 1-80? Meaning all my bank chars are counted there? What is a female player, someone who plays a female character or someone who tole Anet in their account their gender? How about the jobs, are those active ones? Or those already levelled to 400?

Really, this data is worth next to nothing... maybe a little bit of a first general expression. But that is it.

#1909843 Anyone else disappointed with Orr?

Posted Khaidu on 10 September 2012 - 08:04 AM

Yes, but that is because I absolutely hate undead. I mean it would be ok if the zone had more than just undead, but I find the entire zone just boring and depressing. I can't stand zombies and it is even worse that mostly everything you do at 80 is in Orr, I swear if I could get my mats from the lower level zones I would never set foot in Orr again, I am glad I can get most things in the snow zone.

Why didn't they add an 80 zone which was forest or even plains? I am fine with the ice place, I will be spending my farming time there because I cannot stand Orr. Sure, Zhaitan is the first dragon we encounter, but I would have liked zones with more than just undead. Not everyone enjoys killing undead creatures.

#1908608 Anyone else disappointed with Orr?

I had no expectations about Orr - but as far as impressions go most of it is just plainly annoying. Unlike 95% of the game Orr has an even coat of mobs with what seems to be much larger agro range and silly amounts of control effects to boot. Coupled with the fact that you have only a few active waypoints on the maps most of the time - it means that you have to fight your way trough tons of mobs to get anywhere - not to mention the "Fun" of realizing that no one holds the temples anymore and you are knee deep in Fun Fun debuffs.

This isn't the "epic" end game zone I had imagined when they described it. It just feels like yet another zone only more irritating to navigate and less to do.

Hope they put some kind of real end game in soon, i'm really starting to get bored of the game now...

Fact: You will have to settle for sub-optimal gear and grind for weeks/months to get the best gear and hit the power plateau. Yes, sadly ArenaNet lied to us. It was all pipe-dreams.

Look, I love the game... I wont stop playing the game. This is seriously the best MMO I've ever played in my life so I'm not bashing the game. But the reality is this... we were lied to, and people who haven't gotten to 80 yet needs to know what they should come to expect when they hit level 80.

There is a very real grind at max level to get to the power plateau. Prepare yourself from now. Don't hit level 80 and then get frustrated about it.

Why is time a factor when there is no monthly subscription fee?

#1909558 WvW Article Series: New players, start here!

Posted Relidar on 10 September 2012 - 06:25 AM

I see many new players asking questions on forums and in game about what exactly to do in WvW, and how they can affect the bigger picture. For this purpose i thought it would be good to make more people aware of what their options are and how what they do helps their team or hurts their enemies.

1. Communication and chat.

This is the most important part about WvW. If your server cannot communicate then your success rate will diminish. Let people know what is happening around you. On most servers /team is focused mainly on tactics and information on the borderland that you're on and /map is for general chat.
  • Are you and 4 friends attacking an objective? Let everyone know about this, be specific too, where are you attacking and how many are you, do you need help, where are you going next.
  • Is one of your objectives being attacked by an enemy? Same here, where, how many and what's the status. (Gate/wall %)
  • Is your guild claiming a tower, keep or castle? Are you upgrading a castle? (See more about upgrades below)
2. Contribution and progress.

No matter how many you are, even if you are alone, you can always contribute and help your team.
  • If you're alone, go help working on relationships with the neutral mob factions in the borderlands. Not many people are aware of these and what they can do, but they can help change the battle for your team or the enemies. All neutral mobs, when allied, will contribute in one way or another. Some will send out forces to defend your supply camps and some will even attack and take over supply camps or towers.
  • Small man groups, 3-10, your biggest advantage is your speed and quick execution. Stay away from the big crowds and focus on supply camps. Supply camps are the most important part about taking and keeping objectives. Without supplies your, or the enemy team, will eventually run dry and not be able to defend their towers, keeps or castles.
  • Cut off roads from and to big hubs where your enemies are headed to defend. Placing small groups of 5-10 players on vital choke points around the map will help your team or devastate your enemy.
3. Siege weapons, positioning and costs.

The most important part about siege weapons is that you are aware of how they work and how much they cost to build.
  • ALWAYS make sure that you have people around you with supplies to finish the build, otherwise it's a waste of a siege weapon. (info on how much supplies a siege weapon costs is on the tooltip of the weapon that you buy, it also shows the range!)
  • Positioning is your next priority. Don't just build trebuchets or arrow carts anywhere. Remember, arrow carts have no line of sight requirements, so if you play smart you can hide them behind objects or inside of houses/ruins on the map!
  • If you are building a siege weapon anywhere, make sure your team knows about it. Use /say or /team to make people aware of your plan.
  • Always carry supplies on you wherever you go! When you take a supply camp, make sure you stock up on supplies before moving on to the next objective.
  • If you see someone else building a siege weapon, help them out!
4. What's important and how will i know where to go?

Leadership is good and will always help, but not necessary if your server can communicate.
  • If you don't know where to go, always check the map FIRST! There will be swords indicating  if anyone is attacking an objective. Silver swords means a smaller attack (5 or less) and bronze/orange swords means a bigger attack (5 or more).
  • If you are still unsure, don't be afraid to ask for direction in /map or /team.
  • Your main priority should always be your own borderlands. Each borderlands has an Orb that gives a bonus 5% health and 50 points in all stats to your realm. Make sure that your homelands is secured and defended first and foremost.
  • Hitting the enemy in their own borderland can distract them and help your own team in the Eternal Battlegrounds.
  • During a siege, if everything around you is cooling down you should always run to the nearest supply camp and restock on supplies, you never know when you might need it next!
5. Tips and tricks!
  • See yourself in the middle of nowhere surrounded by enemies? Remember, it's free to port back to your borderland keep and you can do it instantly out of combat!
  • Always carry salvage kits and gathering tools, you never know when you're gonna run into that rich gold vein!
  • Don't be afraid to team up with new players, it makes WvW even more fun and you get to know new players!
  • Stay off the roads if you want to remain hidden. If you want to get to an objective on the map, you'll be safer following the edge of the map.
  • Keep an eye on chat and the map. You never know when your team might need you exactly where you are at that time!
  • If you die in a zone with the Outmanned buff, make sure you zone out of that map and back in again to regain it.
  • Tower, keep and castle defenses will reward more exp, karma and money as the battles tend to last longer there.
  • All objectives can be upgraded by ANYONE. You don't need to claim it to be able to contribute.
  • Ressing people awards exp and contribution if you are close to an objective. As does repairing doors, gates and walls!
  • Don't take supplies from Stonemist Castle! This is important because this castle will use a lot of supplies to upgrade and repair it's walls and gates. It's also very helpful to have a stock of supplies for when there's an attack! * linkstatic
  • Don't waste time auto-attacking doors, bring siege weapons! * Talamare

#1889143 ArenaNet You can still fix Khaitan end game encounter

Posted mickst3r8 on 06 September 2012 - 07:08 AM

lol... although your points are very valid.

This is the end game boss... It shouldn't be that easy to take him down... especially with just 5.

His dragon minions and the world boss's required alot more than 5 players to take down. It does not make sense that it requires more players to take down his minions yet he him self gets taken down by 5 players.

#1867661 How to keep your HoM pets in your bags

Posted Kalx on 02 September 2012 - 06:27 PM

Got any HoM pets? Tired of seeing them go away whenever you deposit all your collectables in the bank?

No problem!

Go to HoM, and simply purchase 250x of your pet of choice and deposit them. That way there will be a full stack of minipets in the bank and they won't be deposited anymore.

Enjoy :)

Dont understand this move.  Know i dont know about the US but EU doesn't need any more servers we have 6 servers that I have yet to see go above medium population at any point during the day and others that only hit medium population for a small portion of the day

Why don't they add some Oceanic servers? If they did a lot of people who are now forced to play on either US or EU servers would emigrate and they wouldn't need to take actions like these.

I guess they would need to find a solution to the WvWvW but then again I'm sure a big chunk of their users would benefit from Oceanic servers. If they could fill 6 Oceanic worlds WvWvW wouldn't be a problem right?
