GW 1 was one of my top 3 games ever.

How does GW 2 compare?

I didn't like WOW really and absolutely loved GW 1. I'll get the game regardless next week.

Just curious to those of you that played the shit out of GW 1, what do you think of GW 2?

I'm a Ranger all the way.

Hey can you "import" anything from GW 1?

I'd love to get my Drago's Flatbow...that fucker is huge and badass.

Jockey - ^^ I'm talking about lvl 80 sPvP btw, I haven't even bothered leveling my char out of sPvP lol

In regards to the sPvP/BG's, your level doesn't matter at all right? You could have a level 5 ranger and never have to level him beyond that and still be fully competitive in sPvP?

I hate PvP for the most part and love PvE.

How is this going to work for me?

You will be fine. You don't have to do any PvP if you don't want to. :) And there is plenty of PvE.

Jockey - ^^ what is this bird skill lol never heard of it, sounds insane

It's one of the skills you buy with skill points. You summon a bird to attack your foe, and the bird applies a bleed that does pretty good damage combined with your other attacks.

The more I play this game the more I'm loving it. The only beef I have with it so far is that everyone is going ranged for PVP sieges because it works so much better. They need to find a way to make melee more useful in those situations. Also, on the same theme, the boss fights need to be more melee friendly as well. I understand they implemented a dodge mechanic but in the heat of battle when there are a gazillion spell effects and dust and all that going on, sometimes it's impossible to see something coming at you if you're in melee range and then it's insta-death.

Other than that, the game is just fantastic. Up to level 22 so far and I don't have that MMO fatigue. I'm never having to gather shit, or return shit to anyone, or serve as someone's errand boy. I kill, and then I kill some more, and then I kill some more and I'm having a blast doing it.

IMO, this game just destroyed the MMO genre. I can't imagine anyone playing this and then going back to the tedium of WoW or SWTOR or Rift or any other MMO.
Long time WoW player here, and I have a lvl 19 warrior. I must say this is the best start I've ever experienced in an mmo, and I've tried them all. I'm giving serious thought to cancelling my 2 WoW subs. Phone Post

  Yes there is, it's called "Call Owl" and it's a Tier 1 slot skill.  Quite visiting outdated websites.

To be honest I got bored with PvE after a while, the single player story is great but there are gaps where say you're level 10 and do your level 10 single player story quest, and the next quest will be level 12, then after that level 14, you need to level up between story quests in order to be able to catch up with the difficulty.

Thankfully you can level up in WvW PvP, I found the PvE a bit boring after a while, but I think at higher levels you get raids and stuff which is a lot more exciting.
And you can always explore and level in one of the other races' lands...the world is huge! Phone Post

no raids in the game as far as i know, but there is 5 mans later on. i have actually been enjoying the PvE more then the PvP, but as you said, the gap between story quests can get annoying. Sometimes you just want to keep on the story, but then find out you need to get 3 more levels.

I play mainly FPS and never took to WOW. There was so much talk over GW2 so I thought I would give it a go. So far I'm really enjoying it.

There is a lot of content which keeps me
from getting bored.I recommend it.

I did the jumping quest at Lions reach yesterday. Got very annoying lol. Did it in the end though. Phone Post

Dumbass question. There is an option in the inventory to store salvageable items somewhere else. Now I can't find them. Any one know where they went?

Yeah, I think you mean the bank. If you scroll down the bank you'll see the materials storage. Phone Post

 Well I went to buy it today but the web site says they are SOLD OUT.

Nice. They limited sales because of their lack of capactiy.

FAIL 



Sorry! Guild Wars 2 is currently soldout.

To ensure the highest quality service we have temporarily limited the number of copies of Guild Wars 2.

As more capacity becomes available, we will make Guild Wars 2 available for sale again.

Ok thanks... I haven't made it to the bank yet. I'm still in the first area and suck at this game. That portion wasn't well explained. They should have just said "send to bank".

what's the pvp like in this game? I'm looking for something a little more meaningful than how ToR and WoW handled it...

 I'm on Anvil Rock and my warrior is bad-ass.  This is when he was 29, currently 34 and crushing level 38 mobs with ease.

i am a little dissapointed with the servers filling so fast. i couldnt buy the game until i got paid on thursday, and by then the server my guild that ive played pc games with since 2005 filled up.... getting to play with some old friends was the main reason i bought the game i was really suprised a server filled up in less than a week.
