In Topic: Started new, looking for a profession

06 August 2013 - 10:36 AM

Elementalists, Mesmers and Guardians are strong in all of the areas you mentioned. You can definitely pick any of the classes, but many are stronger in some areas and weaker in others. But of the three I've listed, Guardian is easiest to play.

In Topic: Are Profession changes possible?

02 August 2013 - 11:14 PM

So what happens if they introduce a new race? Let's pretend for a moment that in the next expansion Tengu are added as a playable race and Ritualist is the new profession.

Suddenly 90% of the Tengu population is made up of Ritualists.

If Anet wants to introduce a new playable race, I think they should sell race changes. Not only would they make a killing, but it would keep profession/race diversity up. I think it should wipe that character's personal story, too. I wouldn't worry about story achievements. You played through the story and earned achievements; why should that be taken away?

But I do agree with Anet on their decision not to sell profession changes. For one, it doesn't help them sell character slots. It also causes logistical hell and opens up the huge potential for bugs (and complaints from players about said bugs).

In Topic: Best Armor Dye Colors for Under 1 gold?

02 August 2013 - 11:02 PM

Sand Dye - wonderful soft gold color
Ice [insert random color] Dye - works as a cheap white dye
Midnight [insert random color] Dye - works as a cheap black dye
Spitfire Dye - vibrant red dye
Sapphire Dye - rich blue dye
Midnight Rust Dye - my dark brown of choice for reddish color pallets


But in the end, there's no true substitute for Blue Ice Dye and White Dye.

In Topic: Which home instance are you using (now that there's something to use it f...

You unlock the quartz node for your entire account, not just one character. But I've been collecting it on my Norn since the node is right near the entrance of the home instance.

In Topic: Do you still play GW2, and why?

18 June 2013 - 07:41 PM

I've been playing since launch. I've got 5 level 80s so far with plans on leveling the last 3. I enjoy how easy it is to be an altoholic in GW2. :)

I have a lot of fun in WvW; that's the main reason I love having so many geared up 80s. Sometimes I grab a strong ranged class and follow a commander/zerg. Sometimes I grab a roamer and poke behind enemy lines. If I get bored of one class, I can easily switch it up.

I'm also still working on world completion. That's kind of taken a back seat, though. I solo in PvE, and I'm just not interested in wandering around Orr by myself. If I wasn't constantly swapping between alts, maybe I'd finish exploring for a legendary. I technically haven't finished the story yet, either. But I'm in no rush.

Fractals and dungeons are still very fun for me. I don't farm them like a lot of people, so maybe that's why I'm still enjoying them. And I recently joined a fairly big guild. They do events several times a week, and those have been a ton of fun.

I also like farming during the holidays. An hour or two here and there tends to provide me with a nice cash infusion and some new drops. I'm a sucker for shiny new skins (unless gems are involved).

I'm nearing 1,000 hours, and I'm still having fun. There are still parts of Tyria I haven't seen, mini-dungeons and jumping puzzles to explore, skins to collect, alts to gear up, etc.
