#2103894 What I got from the state of pvp discussion...

Posted Tumri on 01 December 2012 - 07:34 PM

Aether your QQ knows no bounds. I don't think I've seen you make a post that DOESN'T include some sort of Elementalist QQ. Right now Eles are VERY viable and competitive in tPvP, especially D/D aura share Ele. If anything ANet will tone down the downed state(almost guaranteed) and buff/nerf other areas as they see fit(maybe).

2 months ago everyone thought Eles were underpowered and useless. A month ago they become a mainstay on nearly every tPvP team because people found a niche for them. At the start of the game people thought Warriors would always have a place on every single tPvP team. As people learned to play and counter Warriors they've all but disappeared from high level play. You can't just judge everything by the lowest rung(Hotjoin).

I see a lot of people saying things like, "I've moved on, the game's dead to me." But you still visit GW2Guru?...

It sure is amusing to see how many people "quit" a game that has no monthly fee *boggle*, only to spend their time complaining on an unofficial forum about a game they claim they no longer care to play.
I stopped going to church when I was a teenager, but you don't see me sitting there every Sunday complaining about how I don't believe in their fairy tale..I left, and that was it.

No one knows for sure what the rules will be with ascended weapons because they don't exist yet. But if they follow the same mechanics as the rest of the game then yes, you can transfer skins forever.

#2086602 Worth coming back, or is the game still bad?

I feel this topic pointless... You ain't paying any money to play it. Log in, try it, if you're bored - leave. Simple as that. 0.o or do you need society's approval to click on the Login button.
Some cheers maybe?
...like I said, pointless topic.
While I agree with you,anyone who's been around MMO forums a few years knows what this topic is all about. Just another attention seeker trying to stir things up a bit, sow a little discord, craving attention, wanting affirmation that he's the man!


Go away dude. SHOO!

#2084710 Best dungeon experience ever!

Posted powercozmic on 17 November 2012 - 09:51 AM

For some reason everytime I open this forums, there's about 90% whine and moan and doom threads. I'm gonna be the ugly ducking here.

Don't care what enyone else things. Fractals is imo the best dungeon experience I've had ever - also one of my best gaming experiences. Maybe I'm just not into the loot or something, the dungeon design and the mood it created was awesome!

This is just an appreciation thread. Feel free to post what you feel about the fractals dungeons.

Thanks Anet. Take my money!

#2084656 What Spec will you play now?

Posted Dusty Friday on 17 November 2012 - 08:56 AM

Look, I appreciate your attempt to belittle my expertise, but it's not doing you any good. I've played the EA build enough to get accustomed to it and to love the playstyle it offers. I constantly switch my weapons and builds and I know that dedicating myself mentally to a single build is never a bright idea. Doesn't the fact that so many people are crying over the nerf of ONE build make you wonder?

The types of players that hold on to one strategy never get to become good at their class. This patch is an opportunity for you and the rest of us to experiment and explore other options. You can either bi*ch about it, or accept it and give your best to overcome the obstruction.

Also, you yourself say that I should 'post my personal opinion', but experience has taught me that phrases like '80% of us...' just don't really fit the context.

Anyways, people who decide to quit the game over such a thing only expose their weakness and lack of patience and effort.


I just want to add something on topic - we've lost something, but we've gained something else. Ether Renewal is indeed very powerful now, I've tested how it holds in dungeons and it's great. The 15 second cooldown is hardly noticeable; in the Fractals of the mists often I imagined that my heal is on CD while in reality it wasn't. This is definitely my new main healing spell.

Give Fiery greatsword a chance as well. I've written a small thread with the transitional build I currently use, until something better surfaces. You can find it in the PvE elementalist page.

#2059041 Post your least favourite non-boss mob

Posted Xuphor on 03 November 2012 - 01:58 AM

Any kind of Imps. They have this one attack that is significantly stronger than any other same level mob. Get 3-4 of them to aggro you, then all of them use that attack on you at once - You're very dead.

I really do hope ANet take the complaints on board and maybe next year we can do the tower alone or with friends like a story instance.

Too much alone alone alone. It's an MMO. I completed it in 20-30 minutes and we had a few Norns in the group. We had a great time, cracking jokes and urging each other on. Such camaraderie would be lost if you were on your own, plus it would be terribly boring.

The problem with jumping puzzles and what gets people to rage over them, especially this one, is that it takes experience to know how to move your character on FPS movement type games. New players will have a very hard time using WASD and spacebar in combination with right click camera turns for maximum efficiency. Crikey, I've seen Youtube videos of people doing jumping challenges with just the Q, W, E, A, S, D keys, slowing doing 90 degree turns after each jump.

The jumping challenge was a challenge for the first twenty minutes, but after that I figured out the jumps and did it ten minutes later, while having a great time with the other people in my instance. Sipping coconut rum probably helped too!

#1949202 Interview regarding dungeons/gameplay before release

Posted Princess Fatora on 19 September 2012 - 07:46 PM


Now you have to grind 40~ hours (+33% for the lock-out/2 per hour limit) and get less silver and experience for doing it?(*)

(*)If your playing habits are terrible.

If you play line a sane person, this doesn't affect you.

That seems to be your problem. You cannot handle long term goals, you need to get it ASAP IMMEDIATLY NOW. This makes you stop having fun, since you draw out exactly what you have to do.

Meanwhile, sane people do see the skin, notice they just have to do the dungeon for it, and do the dungeon a couple times a week, and eventually get the skin. While having a blast.

The problem really is your playing behavior, not the game. You can turn anything into a chore if you do it in a dumb way - ie the way you play, which is such a bad way. I know, it's apparently the new american thing to never savor anything and instead just devour masses of it all at once, but that's not healthy,


They always stated you would have to grind for cosmetics though. That is nothing new. And definitely nothing to "hate" the game over.

Stop bringing common sense and perspective into this discussion.

#1921347 Every single name is used. Literally.

So, after reaching almost 100% completion on my main, I am trying to create a new character.... for 2 hours now. I don't use popular or gimmick names, I have always used the same unique nickname through every single game I have played. My main character, Knuckledust, was made during pre-release so I could grab it but EVERY SINGLE OTHER NAME is taken. I have even tried combination of names.

I don't know if this is some sort of restriction on the character creation, but literally every name is taken. Anyone have experienced this or I am paranoid?

Your names are clearly not as unique as you think.

#1918818 why is mesma damage so poor.

Posted Forsvar on 11 September 2012 - 07:09 PM

Because you are playing it wrong?  Power/crit (10/25/0/25/10) phantasm build with 3 phantasms (2 swordsmen, 1 duelist or warlock) up does I dunno... 10-12k damage every 6s while you run circles around people?  And god forbid you actually add auto-attack or active damage to that.  There is not a single class in the game I do not destroy (as in win with 80% health remaining) in roaming 1v1 during tPVP matches.  I am also insanely strong in 1v2 situations and team fights.  The mesmer is simply THE most OP class right now by a ridiculous margin.  Nothing else holds a candle to us.

Typical pwnage:
(active set: swords)
- drop swordsman
- block if necessary
(switch to sceptre/pistol)
- drop duelist
- stun
- confusion beam
- block if necessary
(switch back to swords)
- drop 2nd swordsman
- blink (utility, not #3 - it's buggy) and blade furry
- block if necessary
- laugh as you shatter (#4, invuln for 3s) and stomp

Rinse and repeat?

Edit: To everyone saying to nerf phantasm damage and increase ability damage - Play another class.  You have completely missed the point of this one.
