View Full Version : Guild Wars 2 Thread

08-30-2012, 11:57 AM


Guild Wars 2 is the sequel to the hugely popular MMORPG Guild Wars (http://www.guildwars.com/) series. It's currently under development by ArenaNet (http://www.arena.net/), a subsidiary of NCSoft (http://us.ncsoft.com/en/), publisher of other successful MMORPGs such as Aion and City of Heroes (fun fact: ArenaNet was founded by ex-Blizzard Inc. employees that had done extensive work on the Diablo series). Many new features have been implemented into Guild Wars 2, such as a completely new game engine, an entirely persistent world with dynamic events, a brand new take on traditional MMO quests and missions, new modes of PvP combat, and a unique skill system unlike any RPG before it with heavy emphasis on weapon selection and character race. The most significant of these features is the "Dynamic Events" system, which essentially reinvents the MMO quest and mission structure.

Q. What is this thread for?
A. Post IDs/Servers/Pictures, whatever related to Guild Wars 2.

Q. What server are we playing on?
A. It varies, no server selected right now. Maybe I'll add a poll. For now, post to ask.

Q. Is Runescape shit?
A. Yes. Yes it is. Fuck that game.

09-01-2012, 05:21 AM
Why'd you post that about Runescape? Did you liek switch games? lol

I want a nice mmo to play again, the last one I played was RS, but liek wayyy back

09-01-2012, 05:22 AM
Why'd you post that about Runescape? Did you liek switch games? lol

No, I just wanted to anger some Runescape players. I hate that game.

Anyway, Guild Wars 2 is pretty fun for an MMO. I will admit that I don't like most MMOs in general, but I can play GW2.

09-01-2012, 09:25 AM
lawl, I noticed RS wasn't fun after a while, I'm never going back.

I really want to try it out, I'd probably like it.

09-02-2012, 08:49 AM
Everyone is getting perm banned in this game due to developer shortcomings, not sure if i really wanna buy it

09-02-2012, 04:49 PM
Stapledshut, I think you misposted in the wrong thread, there were no such thing like you described since launch, except for the hackers and exploiters. Do not confuse people :o

09-02-2012, 09:00 PM
I've been thinking on whether I should play this or not. I've been looking for an MMO to play while I wait for PSO2 NA release.

09-02-2012, 09:43 PM
I'd actually been considering getting the first one a while back, but didn't know if anybody even played it anymore. Not until about a week ago did I learn that they were making a second one. Anybody that plays it got an actual opinion of the game?

Yeah, I bought it about an hour ago though, 56% done. But I have class and I also have a test tomorrow, don't know if I will actually play it today.

Right now I've got a norn warrior over on Sorrow's Furnace and I'm loving it.

09-11-2012, 06:33 PM
I want to play this so bad,since the first rumors and trailers.I got so bored of WoW,and honestly I feel like GW2 is gonna give Blizzard a run for their money.

09-11-2012, 06:59 PM
I was playing this game in beta, and said i must have it.
That is how i came to this site.
I think its all MMORPG should be.

This review says it all.


09-12-2012, 12:51 PM
Guild Wars 2 bring something new to the mmo genre.You won't get bored too soon if you start playing.The review video above your post will tell you why. :)
As for the deluxe version there's not much you gain for those 20$+ but whatever if you think it's worth it.I can't buy the game right but if I could I would buy it in a second,but it's a pretty expensive game so...yeah.

09-12-2012, 01:11 PM
All of my friends started playing this.

Aaaaaaaaah, fuck. I can't wait. Lucky that my birthday is on the 17th. It's going to be a sure buy.

09-12-2012, 04:56 PM
You can always upgrade to deluxe later while in game. But I just went for regular since its cheaper

I'm on Crystal Desert.

09-14-2012, 08:00 PM
With so awesome games coming up, how can I ever find the money and time to play them all :D

But I am asking the classical question as well.. Which server would anyone suggest and why?

09-16-2012, 08:27 AM
Crystal Desert has been decent so far, haven't seen reddit-tier memefaggotry in the chat and well, that's about it.


09-18-2012, 09:28 PM
I'm playing on Dragonbrand.

09-25-2012, 12:14 AM

Why are Norn so perfect?


09-26-2012, 03:04 PM
I've gotten bored playing it. No other MMO can compare to FFXI for me.

10-19-2012, 07:23 AM
Love this game. Highly recommended (lvl 72 now).

Only gripe is levelling is a bit too fast. I find myself trying to get to lvl 80 ASAP so I don't have to deal with switching to a new sword and set of armour every hour to keep up with my level.
Also, for example, I've found I'm nowhere near done adventuring in all the lvl 25-30 areas when I look at my level and I am already lvl 50 :( Good thing about the level balancing though to make up for it a bit.

Other than that, awesome game. First MMO. I've always been a fan of the play style of games like this.

Usually I would be the one trying to get powerful weapons, turning into an offensive character. I also normally go straight for a small amount of autohealing. Tried Dual swords and sword + warhorn. Keep the warhorn for the speed when I need it for fast travelling in peaceful areas. The dual swords weren't very good.

Somehow though... I ended up with a shield, lots of toughness and healing power with all the autoregen I can get and can go invincible twice every 60 seconds in addition to my shield blocks.

aaaaaaannnnnndddd...... threadrevive!

something better than the min requirements

02-10-2014, 09:06 AM
I still have no idea how to make a lot of money or where to get good equipment
Ended up just googling equipment for my level and buying at black lion trade shop
There has to be a better way though..

12-28-2014, 09:05 AM
