#2363108 New to GW2 :)

Posted Atroxity on 08 February 2016 - 09:33 PM

Thanks for the advice :) I broke down and bought HoT so I could make a revenant and I'm going more towards the dps side of things right now because I didn't realize you had to be lv 80 to use a shield as a revenant xD.

My innitial thought is that perhaps they did this to prevent having to deal with spam accounts posting in the forum. They have a large audience, some of which you know what you can sell them. This makes them a very tasty target for spam accounts.

#2360528 Playing with wife and rl friends?

Posted Prince Zorkian on 19 October 2015 - 04:45 AM

There are two answers to this question, both are fairly easy, but the exact answer depends on what kind of account you both have.

If you have a new free to play account, once you both get through the intial tuturial (which takes about 10 mins to play), you can then map travel (press M for map, and choose a waypoint) to any other starter map

If you both have paid accounts, then you simply,
1) go through the tutorial,
2) Get to your capital city (usually just a few feet away from where you start after the tuturial, its usual the first portal you encounter)
3) find the asuran waypoint to Lion's Arch and go through it
4) choose what city you want to meet at and go through that waypoint

In other words, you could join any other person no matter what race you play vrs they play within an hour, and that is being very generous with time.

#2360234 How viable is a thief+ranger duo?

Posted Happyshinobi on 11 October 2015 - 12:22 AM

Me and my lady started playing Gw2 this afternoon, and so far we have enjoyed the game. We have only done PvE so far, and neither of us are over level 10.

She loves the archer class, so I want to know if thief is a viable option to duo the game with? I'd like to be able to PvE, Pvp, and WvW with her.

#2360198 Boxes of armor

You'll need to get the recipe out of the Mystic Forge, and then use the recipe to craft the set.

Note that since you're burning a Celestial Draconic Coat to get the recipe, this is going to cost about the same as crafting seven pieces, instead of six. And that's disregarding the Mystic Coins, wine, etc. It may be more convenient/efficient to just collect all of the mats for the set, and then wait until you have a level 80 revenant to actually craft it.

#2359700 Seeking new class, please help.

Posted Satenia on 28 September 2015 - 12:03 AM

I have re-read your post a couple of times and I'm afraid there is no suggestion I can give you that would meet your criteria. As such, the only advise I have is to let go of whatever ideas of a class you have based on your GW1 experience. You won't find a match in GW2 as far as I can tell.

However, based on your post, you don't seem to rule out necromancer or guardian straight away. As such, I would like to offer the following input:

The necromancer - while completely underrated at this point - has managed to get the attention of Anet: There are quite a few boosts incoming (see the upcoming balance patch) and there have been plenty of hints that they are trying hard to incorporate it into the more challenging aspects (group content) of HoT. Should the necromancer get past the current barrier of being a rather selfish class, I see a lot of potential, especially for the reaper. From a purely subjective point of view, I find the necromancer incredibly fun to play at this point already. Add efficiency to that and I don't see where you could go wrong.

Secondly, there is the guardian. I am completely biased on this as I'm a guardian main with a couple k hours and so on and so forth. To put it simple, when it comes to group content, this is the kind of class where you really can make a difference. It is the one class where I find myself constantly swapping skills because there are just so many good choices. Maybe that is the kind of flexibility you are looking for. It's also the closest to a "battle-mage" I could think of.

Many people will say GW2 is extremely casual and lacks "hardcore" content. However, definition of the term hardcore is quite varied and changes dramatically depending on who you ask. I think, GW2 design primarily caters to a crowd base that is past 25 and can rent their own cars.

People forget that most people playing the game may log in 2-3 times during the week, or one or two days on the weekend; and they won't be spending more than maybe 2-3 hours at a time in the game.  For them, the game has plenty to offer.  Sorry, but if you work and are good at your job, have a family, have other social events, and/or other games, even, chances are you won't be one of those crying, "This game has nothing to do anymore!  They need more content!"  Even for those playing the game hard core, most in a good, friendly, casual guild won't be having many issues, either.  This game was made for THESE people.  

For me, this is the magic of the game.  I don't feel the desire to need to log in and play 5 hours a pop like a crack head.  I can treat it casually, and my character can look the way I want them, without having to spend a lot of cash or grind for days.  It's a beautiful game, the animation is great, and breaking with the trinity is the best thing that ever happened.  The LS can be Scooby Doo at times, but that has its own charm.  

You'll always have those of a small, vocal minority who think they, but for lack of money/backing, could do better.  If they could, they would.  It's good just to take them with a grain of salt, and enjoy the game with open eyes.

#2359301 Play-for-Free Introduction Thread!

Posted Midnight Wolf on 14 September 2015 - 08:58 PM

I’ll start. Hello everyone, I have been playing MMOs since 2008, I have been playing games since I was 6 years old (thanks to my grandmother haha). I first learned about Guild Wars 2 about 2 years ago when some of my friends said they played it. I always ended up missing the free trial to give this game a try. I’m glad they are giving us a way to try it out for free. I started on crystal desert last week and have an elementalist there. Now I’m about to start on a second character either a ranger or a thief. If you want to play in-game send me a mail.

Have a nice day

I guess neo-ANet couldn't make the B2P model work.  You kind of need to make a good game and support it to pull something like that off.

It has more to do with the end of large-scale support for GW2 Core.  As with any game you pay for their attention and HoT is going to get the vast majority of attention. Since they aren't putting effort into GW2 Core like they were before they don't have to sell it to survive so to boost HoT sales they're using GW2 Core as a demo.  Most people would think "if they're giving all this away for free I really need to see what they do with paid content". It's an aggressive strategy but should garner tons of attention from gamers. It's similar to the gem marketing strategy they've used since GW1, that some won't pay anything, some will pay a lot, but most will pay something as they get more and more invested in the game.

#2358878 Possible reveal leak - Spoilers

[*]Too little information available for this, but I really hope these raids won't turn into gimmick-encounters. While one can argue against trivializing content through high bursts (like what currently happens in dungeons), coordinating 10 players to glide, jump, etc. at a precise moment over the whole encounter doesn't really sound that much fun either.
How about a little bit of everything? There's plenty of space in Tyria for all manner of raids to reach a diverse pool of interests, while making things difficult enough to warrant endgame rewards.

That said, they will also need to be accessible to non-guild PUGs, as there's no shortage of small or diminished guilds in the game. If elements of the precursor hunts are going to be integrated into the raids, which is what I'm getting from their legendary rewards line, then everyone needs a shot.

And difficult content is all well and good, but we can't fall back into the hellhole of gear-pinging that was ever-present for Urgoz/Kanaxai, etc. in GW. Elitism and disgracing have no place in this game, and reinforcing the metagame makes it more fun for no one.

Personally, I expected December at the very earliest.

For what it's worth, they did announce some time ago that it would definitely release this year. https://twitter.com/...069828054192128

I was thinking late November to duck in ahead of Christmas.

#2358582 What is there to do in GW2 at the moment?

Posted Satenia on 17 August 2015 - 01:49 PM

In regards to content, it's pretty much what you mentioned. There haven't really been any additions as of lately.

However, this might be a good opportunity to check out the specialization changes, finish some achievements (LS) and take a look at the new LA (they added a dragonite-ore-eating reward, which is definitely worth checking out).
