WvW Zerg Warrior Questions

15 April 2014 - 08:57 AM

Hi all.

I've been recently thinking about decking out my warrior (again) for wvw. I have plenty of roamers, but only my ele and warrior for running with the zerg.

Currently I have soldiers with zerker trinkets and ruby orbs.

I'm wondering if it could be fun to go max health. I know I'd loose a lotta damage, but having upwards of 28k hp sounds amusing to me.

So, thoughts on this from wvwer's?

I'd be looking at Vit/Power/Toughness.

Thief (PC 2014): Worth playing?

18 March 2014 - 03:04 AM

Hi all.

Has anyone played the new Thief game? I was thinking of trying it out. I enjoyed Dishonored (one you look past some of the flaws like the crazy OP abilities), and I enjoyed Thief II.

I'm hearing that Thief 2014 is being panned in reviews for being watered down "modern-led-by-the-nose-gaming". Tbh, that's about what I expect from modern reboots.

So, with that in mind, is it worth playing?

A few queries about Malchor

28 January 2014 - 03:58 AM

Hey all.

I have a few thoughts on Malchor (the Sculptor), and would appreciate any insight that the lore whizzes might have.

Why is Malchor still in possession of his own free will (so to speak), even if he is bordering on the edges of sanity? Is he somehow impervious to the Corruption that surrounds Orr, and thus Zhitan has no hold over him? Or might we assume that Zhitan just doesn't care?

Lastly, where does Malchor go, after the Cathedral of Zephyrs is seized in present time. "I'll leave no part of me behind." Are we to understand that he has willed himself to 'move on'? Additionally (this is now almost me just rambling), does Malchor actually go? If we were to assume the cathedral changing hands is a one time event, then this question seems moot. However, *if* the capture and loss of the cathedral is happening over and over as the risen re-claim it, is Malchor simply so lost in grief that he does not realise he is repeating the same actions again and again?

If you have any insight to any of this, I'd be very interested to hear it. Please excuse the last question, that's moreorless just my own thought meanderings.

Twisted Marionette - A step in the right direction?

23 January 2014 - 07:30 PM

Hi all.

So, I'm hoping you've had a chance to try out the new temp world event, and formulated your own opinions on it.

Personally, my reaction is that it's a nice change. Seems like a mix of tower defense and the assault gametype from unreal. To me, it's the first boss which feels like a real boss fight, as opposed to our usual dps spam.

However, it seems to me that the event is suffering from "Tequatlisis" (as I have decided to call it). Due to the amount of people required, and the fact that you are once again relying heavily on the competence of random people, it seems that chances of succeeding are slim, even if you yourself are good. It is disappointing to see 3 out of 5 lanes fail when their turn comes round, then wondering what they were doing.

Complaints aside, I think it's a step in the right direction away from our traditional dps spam bosses, since it requires a little (not much) more thinking.

So, whats your thoughts?

Something's Borked

20 January 2014 - 11:15 PM

Hey people.

This is gonna be a bit sketchy cos I'm posting for a friend. His power went out while his system was on, and gw2 (no other games) has been running at ~10fps ever since. I'm told that the drivers are up to date on his gfx card, and that it's being detected by the device manager (not that I know if that's a reliable test).

He also thinks it might be running a bit hot (don't really know benchmarks), but the CPU is at around 40 deg and the gfx processor is around 60 deg. Nothing is overclocked to my knowledge.

CPU: Intel Core Duo E7500 @ 2.93Ghz 41deg WOlfdale 45nm technology
GFX: AMD Radeon HD 5670
OS: Win7 Home

Thats about all I can give you atm. Hoping for a way to figure whats gone wrong, since neither of us are sure.

Any help is appreciated.
