In Topic: Should I buy GW2?

28 January 2013 - 05:42 PM

I think this game is still in beta.  Ie I don't think it was "READY" when it was released.  I won't recommend buying it atm.  

I would recommend waiting a couple of months and look at the community's reaction about the patches for Q1 this year.  It's apparently as big as an expansion pack.  Which means it might be IMO (finally) the complete release of GW2.

You don't have to grind gear, periode. You're perfectly viable to play any part of the game (fractals included) in greens that you can get for a few silver, or easily find just from playing. Even getting exotics doesn't require that much investment.
It's only when you're aiming for something special (but unrequired) that you run into any grind.
Want that special armor skin from the dungeon? then you might find yourself in a grind.
Want to do progression in the farctals, beyond just experiencing the content? then you might find yourself in a grind.
But, ascended gear included, they have stuck to the manifesto in that you do not have to grind to experience what the game has to offer.

And people need to learn what an actually gear treadmil is....

Hopefully "overhauled encounters" means new Zhaitan fight ~.~ nice to see them working on dungeon encounters regardless though. And more creature variation will be appreciated ^^

Groups are already asking for Exotics to play the new dungeon content.  With higher stats on the Ascended armor, what's next?

If Ascended had the same stats as Exotic armor, then I might agree with you.  

I predict, with future dungeons you will have groups looking for members with Ascended armor only (Exotics will not be good enough then), to get who knows what the next "bridging" armor might be or perhaps higher stats Ascended.

They never said that.
Exotics was after all not even revealed until rather soon before release so why would they talk about it during the manifesto (which btw is not the same as the finished product. For a good reference look at USSR) nor the development phase.

Why is the difference between "Exotic" weapons and "Legendary" weapons purely cosmetic then?  Everybody assumed this will be similar with armor, ie there will be no stat bonus for what appears to be higher tier items, after "Exotics".

This is also in line with their manifesto, where they proclaimed you will not have to gear grind and such...

I will probably just remap the skills back to how it was pre-patch, since I find the new placement horrid.
Too bad GW2 doesn't have character specific keybinds and I'll have to remap them again for my alts.
Ugh, horrid change.

Have you thought this through?

Keybinds are valid for ALL your weapons skills and not just the current weapon.  So what happens when you switch to your secondary weapon set or underwater weapons?

In what lvl and prof did this happen to your gf? Because I m doing my 3rd story so far w/o probs. As for the guild/griends panel and dungeon issues I havent experienced any probs since launch. Maybe, I say maybe, u should try to repair your client? It's quite possible that some files may be corrupt or something.

We were lvl 41 or 42 and the personal story mission was lvl 30.  This only happens when you do a faction (Vigil, Order of Whispers, Durmond Priory) low lvl 30 mission in a group.  If you do it solo, it doesn't skip ahead.

I immediately ran a repair when I encountered the guild/friend panel problem and it said that nothing was wrong.
