So I finally bought GW2 just to try it out. I made a warrior and literraly facerolled to lvl 10. Literally faceroll. Is this what the combat in this game is like? You just spam 5 skills and auto attact to win? Please tell me this isnt true.... Also why cant I attack any other players? WTH. What is the point of gearing up and lvling up if you cant do anything with your gear? So far this game is horrible.

What other games have you played mmo-wise.... GW2 seems not to different than most others.

In fact I like how GW2 allows you to use many different weapons per class and the weapon choice effects the skills that are possible to use.

Warrior is the easiest class to level I think, especially pre-40. Heavy armor, hits hard, good weapon skills. Especially if you go the signet build (use all signets and that skill that gives you 40 crit per unused signet) you just mow mobs down.

You might enjoy some of the other classes more. I personally liked the mesmer when I played GW2, because you have to be a lot more active and dodge/use clones/etc, not just stand there and mow mobs down. Elementalists also is a lot more active, you have to chain a lot of skills together to be effective. Some people think that's great fun.

You can PvP in WvW or structured PvP to your hearts content.

In WvW you can not only enjoy killing other players, but help your world. See WvW stats for your server, there is always a WvW event.

As to facerolling to 10 ... well heck yeah, most games start out easy and get tougher with higher level. Eventually you'll get to Orr, and enjoy yourself immensely.

This isn't WoW, don't play it as such, or you will self disappoint. There are no arbitrary player factions on your server. All are friendly. WvW or explicit PvP is where you go to kill other players.

Exploration, farming, and crafting are as important as fighting and leveling. Eventually you may need to create equipment, if you haven't taken to farming as you go, the cost will be high.

Good luck.

I'm still playing. We have been getting almost weekly content updates. Plenty of stuff to do! Running in the enormous zergs in WvW or World Events is a lot of fun.

I just bought the game for $40 on Amazon. Seems this game ranges right in that price range.

Downloading it now. I should have it by tomorrow, but I won't be able to play until Thursday. If you have a guild, I would love to join up.

I have been considering picking up a new game and saw this thread.

Anyone still playing?

Anyone care to give an updated review of the game and how it is?

the game hasn't been out for a year yet...

I'm expecting more zones, more playable races, more playable weapon types and more dungeons, ascended core armor pieces, more WvW wep and armor skins

the max level cap will always be 80, and I like that

i only have 80 warr/guardian, i am waiting for the new races before i make my 80 mesmer

reply to TheThing

I'm playing GW2 right now too. A couple of things I am enjoying:

1) the community-- people on my server are actually helpful. They are polite and say thanks when you help them with something, general chat (yell) is usually full of announcements of new spawns rather than filthy brat speak, and even when I have done PVP as an up leveled toon people tend to give me advice rather than give me shit about joining their BG as an up leaved toon.

2) ability to step away-- I've never had an MMO where I didn't mind frequently taking a break. When I step away I'm not jonesing to get back ASAP. Usually when that happens with a game I either quickly burn out on the game or never get the desire to relog.

3) no rush to level-- I can't put my finger on what they did to achieve this, but this is the first MMO I have played where I don't have this feeling that everything is an obstacle to overcome so I can level ASAP. Leveling is extremely slow, but I don't really give a shit. I run around doing little spawn events, or random quest-like tasks, or zone into PVP for a while and often don't even notice that I have leveled. I'm enjoying the lack of pressure and the ability to just "see the world".

I'm only level 13 (a female human ranger), so I am sure my opinion will change on some aspects of the game the longer I play it. But I haven't enjoyed playing another MMO this much since early WoW. (I tried Age of Conan, Lord of the Rings, Aion, SWTOR, Rift, and WoW.)

My toon is poor, wearing shitty gear, has no professions, and dies a lot both in PVE and PVP. Yet I am smiling every moment I play. What more can I ask for out of a game?!

reply to pr1mo

getting involved with an mmo is like getting involved with a new TV show... that has like 100 episodes... its a big commitment

with TV shows now ill watch one episode and get turned off by little things, because it doesn't warrant me watching 100 hours worth of it

with fractals im more casual now the time commitment to that was taking the fun out of the game

Glad you're enjoying it. Me, on the other hand, will probably never be back in there. Finished with MMOs.

I have recently fallen in love with GW2 all over again. And pretty much been just playing GW2 exclusively.

I've haven't liked a game this much since, WoW and LoL... LoL didn't last as long as either WoW or GW2.

Now that I am a man of liesure (recently unemployed) I've had a lot more time to play GW2 and try out things I never did before in the game, and really gain a better understanding of what the game is... and on top of it I'm not constantly tired from work.

WvW is just awesome... epic huge battles, no more invisible players, love it, i get lost playing WvW for hours at a time now, its great a perpetually PvP struggle with no Queues once you are in... awesome

Having 2 classes I love to play is unheard of for me. In WoW I could never find 2 classes I loved to play equally. (because of buffs and nerfs and class changes, I never liked 2 classes at once) My guardian and my warrior are so awesome in GW2... I love them both!

The combat mechanics in GW2 are best of any MMORPG I have EVER played. I dabbled in WoW here and there recently, and now WoW is just boring and old when it comes to combat. and feels so blah!

To me GW2 is now OFFICIALLY the best MMORPG ever made, it's not perfect by any means, but it's the best.

World completion has been a ton of fun, sitting at 99% waiting on WvW nodes to open up, the adventure has been fun, and experiencing things i missed before is just awesome! beautiful views, awesoem graphics, and little hints at whats to come next...

After exploring the world more thoroughly I'm pumped about the future of this game... ITS OBVIOUS that desert zones are coming, and ITS OBVIOUS that other playable races are coming, like the hawk race or whatever... as soon as they come out I will level one immediately to be my mesmer. They are epically bad ass looking.

love this game, its the best MMORPG out right now period

the only requirement for this game is to approach it with an open mind, and you have to learn to unlearn some habits from other mmos

WvW is a ton of fun, the most fun it's ever been

WvW is the way I spend most of my time in game now

got skins for my warrior and guardian... i wish there were more, and weapon skins as well

culling is when there are too many players on screen at once and your computer doesnt show them, because of the server... now you can see everyone, huge difference, epic battles

WvW is pretty epic right now.

Culling is gone, you see like 120vs120 man battles, its pretty epic and amazing

additonally there are now WvW skins for wepsn/armor that are half way decent, and im sure there are more to come

at a crossroads with GW2:

Pros:
- Great graphics
- Great combat
- Great/beautiful open world
- Free to play

Cons:
- Near meaningless end-game gear progression, with GRIND. end game gear progression is more about time grind than anything else. Gear at end-game doesn't really do much for you.
- PvE and sPvP are disjoint worlds, this is the BIGGEST issue for me

GW2 Going forward:
- At a minimum I will complete daily (usually takes me 20min tops)
- Fractals if I'm bored

I may transition to TERA. While GW2 may have better graphics, better play control, a cooler more beautiful open world. Tera does not have disjoint PvE and PvP worlds.

And from my understanding Tera's end-game gear progression is more traditional and meaningful.

If I have badass PvP gear in Tera, in the open world I will be powerful... this is something that does not occur in GW2. and I miss this from my WoW days.

any thoughts?

... but then again... outlaw mechanics in Tera are fucking wacked... and pretty stupid since there are no factions

and finally sPvP in GW2 might reward skil with gear...

but that sPvP gear is in a separate universe! WTF!

most of GW2 is in PvE not sPvP... so any epeen in sPvP is hidden for the most part!... and pretty pointless!
