Re: Official Guild Wars 2 Thread
my favorite wep of the weekend was warrior with 2H mace/hammer or whatever... like ret paladin in WoW
the 2H ultimate (LoL reference lol) was a jump and smash aoe, that stunned everything, freakin awesome!
the normal abilities with it were also very cool... a whirlwhind type of attack, and a group smash stun... like Barbarian seismic slam in D3
2H weapons fill out all 5 skills, as obviously an off hand cannot be used.
Necro 2H is the staff, which focuses on a lot of AOE traps or zone triggers, causing debuffs as baddies move through them.
as you progress in the game:
would an EPIC 2H staff do different abilities than lets say a normal 2H staff?
or would the abilities stay the same, and only the stats improve?
I'm pretty sure skills remain the same, but you get traits that do different things (independantly of your weapon) that can affect it, plus you can place "add-ons" to the weapon as well, that give it perks and buffs....but again, I'm not 100% on that.

I agree with beef. Warrior was ok dual weild but when I finally got a 2 handed Mace or weapon it picked up a lot in the fun factor.
Classes I tried this Beta were:
Thief and Warrior.
I'm split between the two. Thief gameplay is really fun and involves a lot of movement and animations are really slick. Dual pistol though maybe not the most damage is pretty awesome to just play. I always wanted dual range weapons as a Hunter in WoW. Warrior like I said earlier got more fun as a got 2 handed weapons. The nice thing about Warrior was you could take a few hits as the thief could be 2 shotted. Not entirely to sure what to roll when the game releases.
I really don't know what was going on. Funny thing was others around me didn't either. There appeared to be some who did as they were barking orders in Area Chat but I didn't even understand the nodes they were yelling at us to help capture or defend. As those who know MMO's well know maps get abbreviations or nicknames (such as BS for Blacksmith in AB). In WvWvW there are event/quests as you approach certain areas and you work to do them. It was just weird, big, confusing. All wonderful about a new game. I only ran into one opposing player but we zerg killed him.
hehe that's hilarious
usually it just boils down to follow the leader...
mother duckling leading her chicks... when momma stops the babies bump into the others from behind, and start spinning/walking in circles all confused!
UI in GW2 is very different, still figuring everything out
the game definitely feels more open world than Tera... Tera felt very corralled... in valleys
you have a separate set of weapons for above water and below water... and the game camera gets water drops on it when you come out of the water, pretty awesome
- Game music was excellent
- Game art was excellent
- Day/night cycles were excellent
- Weather cycles were excellent
- The game is massively multiplayer without requiring you to be massively social (I know some hate social gaming)
- You get experience for rezzing fallen comrades... this motivates people to rezz you during battles or if they walk buy randomly
- Zone portals allow you to teleport to other sections of the zone without walking all the way there (you have to find the portals before you can use them... a big critique of mmos is wasted time walking through empty land you have nothing to do in)
one zone, will have day/night/weather cycles... and during bad weather it rains/gets cloudy, and the grass blows! pretty awesome
I agree and disagree with how open it feels. It's free to roam yes as Tera has some invisible walls. But to me Tera felt more open similar to WoW. Yes when you took the FP to places in Tera you would go warping into outspace thingy but you could if you wanted run from zone to zone without ever hitting a loading screen. With GW2 when you hit other zones you actually zone through an instance looking door and it goes into a loading screen.
ahhhh... didn't know this! stayed in one zone
put this in the forums as undesirable!
loading screen between zones is very bad!
