#2153168 Limit to res in dungeons

Posted Gerroh on 29 January 2013 - 08:28 AM

Shit players are gonna have a shit time. Some of the dungeons need some difficulty toned, but I always hated with a burning passion the people who'd say "We have to die and run back", like in CoF with the "1-2-2" part. Wimps. My guild fights that part together and to the death.


#2140966 Starting to miss special unique drops. Am I wrong feeling this way?

Posted Kurosov on 12 January 2013 - 06:45 PM

I'd have loved to have seen more of a disconnect between stats and skins.

Allow max stats exotics to be bought cheaply from a trader while allowing the skins to be the items of value acquired both from dungeon tokens and drops from chests/bosses rather than everything from the MF


#2123893 GW2 and the Trinity

There are also scripted systems to make trinity challenging. You make it sound standing and keeping aggro is all there is to trinity lol.
Like wise you also have pointed out it is indeed impossible to please everyone. By your standards, has GW2's combat system come to a state where it completely satisfies it's intended purpose to negate the trinity? If so can you kindly list it?

I keep bringing aggro control up because it is a core mechanic of the trinity, and that's the one I'm mainly against. You can have heavy classes, medium classes, and light classes, heck, throw in some healing, whatever, but I personally do not like aggro control the way it's been handled in WoW or EQ. Any time you can get a boss or mobs to ignore everything else but one guy who has a healer repeatedly healing him to full health became boring to me. This is personal preference.

By my standards? Some GW2 fights you need to watch the boss animations, call targets, dodge, kite, coordinate, etc. The fractal hammer boss, the final fractal dredge mine boss, the last boss in AC p3 to some extent, the balthazar priest event, the pre-nerf grenth priest event, and a few others. There's enough "game" there to satisfy me. I've pulled off several clutch moments in GW2. I've kept the boss busy by myself, literally rolling and weaving instead of RNG dodge mechanics, while other people are rezzing and they're still in danger of the boss changing his mind and going after them, during which we'd have to switch places on the fly. Or rezzing someone right before they bleed out while we're under heavy AOE, etc. Or someone being immobilized and I rifle butt the mob away from him, hoping my ally will be free before it comes back to him again. Clutch moments rarely happens in WoW. If a tank is down, wipe. If a healer is down, wipe. Not because the rest of the group sucked, but because the bosses two-shots everyone who isn't a tank with a healer, and there's no dodging it. There are still clutch moments in a WoW raid, but in my time of playing WoW (end game raiding in BC, WotLK, and starter raids in Cata) there have been less clutch moments compared to my short time playing GW2.

Now, yeah, there are a lot of crappy fights in GW2, and a lot of the time I'm just watching Netflix while running a dungeon. But there are fights which take advantage of this system, as I listed above. And I enjoy them. I've stopped enjoying the trinity fights from WoW, but I don't go in the blizzard forums going on and on and on about how much I dislike the trinity and how another system is better. I just left and found another game.


#2116659 Anyone losing that new game smell?

Posted FrogKnight87 on 13 December 2012 - 11:21 AM

You played 550 hours and wonder why the "new" feeling is gone ? Rofl.


#2103333 How much does this resonate with you?

Posted ~PolarisNova~ on 01 December 2012 - 08:38 AM

GW2 is a good game, but obviously not what you wanted or expected it to be. You keep posting the things you don't like, do you think by doing this that GW2 will suddenly become the game you want?

Anyway, I do agree that initially I felt movement in combat was slow....but I've gotten used to the pace, and used to the dodge rolling. I disagree that it doesn't require player skill, of course it does otherwise people would never be downed or dead. It does require quick reactions, and no amount of armor stats will help with lack of skill.

I enjoy the game, and I rarely ever post on here, because I am mostly (besides being generally busy in my life) having fun playing the game.


#2099580 Tip for people using shift = dodge

Try using the caps lock for dodge, after using it for 10 minutes I'll never go back to any other key. :)
"hey, there!
"yo! When did you log in?"

#1990123 Did Guild Wars 2 live up to your expectations?

Posted kook on 03 October 2012 - 08:44 PM

Yep, I didn't let myself go in with impossible expectations like so many people seem to think is required.

My expectation is to be entertained. When I play Guild Wars 2 I am entertained. So yea, it meets my expectations.


#1990637 Really Weird Mini Logan Bug

Posted Gerroh on 03 October 2012 - 11:26 PM

Okay, so it's probably not a big deal, but it's still kinda weird.
I was in the swamp, fighting some monsters as you can see below, and I encountered this weird bug.

As you can plainly see, there is combat going on, yet Logan is not running away, he's just standing there. Wtf is going on?


#1958273 why are there so few people around now?

Posted Domynic on 22 September 2012 - 12:08 PM

1. Name your server so we can actually discuss that part of your question.
2. You're in a dead zone. A place the majority of players haven't yet reached. Or the majority of players have already moved on from.
3. You're in a crappy zone. A place where people have access to but don't because, well.. (I'm looking at you, Lornar's Pass)
4. You're playing outside of prime time.
5. The people in that zone simply don't want to do whatever you're doing. (I'm looking at you, Megalodon's)
6. Everyone is dead. You're the last person on Earth. This is an automated message.


#1954702 CoF still being farmed...

Posted LavaSquid on 21 September 2012 - 08:39 AM

View PostKormir Died For Your Sins, on 21 September 2012 - 08:30 AM, said:

Well, I heard from a monkey today that people can still farm CoF, except

1.) You can get 5 more tokens by glitching the instance.

2.) You don't have even engage the most recently tuned fight.

For those who do this, you know what I am talking about.

I seriously don't get it. Why farm and exploit the dungeon that gives the one skin set that everyone has? Do you need exotics? I made 2g plus a day and just crafted mine...

I give up, a part of the community complains about the lack of end game and overall grind, but then grinds the same dungeon all day long. (AND then complain about it when it's fixed!)  There's NO reason to grind CoF, and there is doubly no reason to grind CoF and exploit it.

I have reported the exploit as it should be. I will not describe it here. I just don't understand the gamer mentality anymore.

Sweet jebus when is Pandaria coming out, this game needs a lowest common denominator culling in the highest degree.

Faith in humanity restored.


#1843618 Guild Wars 2 is a disappointment!

Posted sifr on 29 August 2012 - 09:02 PM

TL;DR:  GW2 isn't like other MMOs, therefore OP doesn't like it.

Nah, it was way too easy last BWE.
