Who knows, I doubt it desu. Same w/ herald as the main DPS(now that thief's getting a dps increase).
Chrono will most likely still be viable as a tank/alacrity support.
in PvP, chrono won't be viable anymore ;]
This game is a clusterfucked snorefest.
I've played through the snow areas up to level 34 this week. I wasn't challenged once and pretty much soloed my way into it without having to build up a group and think up tactic or whatever. Just smashing my keyboard because the skill cooldowns are so damned fast and there's no downside to spamming spells.
Does this pick up at some point? Or was it designed to be an epic rollercoaster when you join up spontaneous crowds to complete random events on the go?
Pre NPE was slightly better while leveling, things weren't completely faceroll.
post NPE things turned into babby mode, and aimed towards casuals.
Sadly there's no way around it ,doing map comp isn't challenging and it's a borefest. If you want a challenge, do instanced content for your recommended levels
>gw2 was better pre NPE
The combat sure as fuck wasn't. The only thing better was how players unlocked skills. He's still right about how messy and braindead combat is in all corners of the game.
Is there any reason bringing herald after the nerf? Ele does better damage, also can stack might and fury, nice group heal/aura and static charge is a great raid wide dps increase.
The only thing herald do better than ele is CC.
>If you want a challenge, do instanced content for your recommended levels
Is it really challenging? I feel like I wasted enough time as it is I wouldn't want to waste more to find out I can also solo through an instance with mild difficulty.
By that I mean, do the instances in this game force you to roll around with a balanced group and plan key encounters carefully like in old WoW or Aion?
Damn. And I'm in a general where people typically fanboy for their games.
The game must be really hopeless then if not even the general posters defend it.
What's the appeal of this MMO then?
I was young and foolish. And I hadn't figured this sub-human out for what he was.
Why today did I stray back? What did I expect to find in this crooked, tired city dressed in noble's clothes? It's turquoise banners, white sands and golden trim draw the eye from it's bent, narrow alleys and furtive hisses: the harbor's scars, pustules and up-the-sleeve daggers. I know them, but I plod through and swallow the scenes with a civilian's eyes. I've no title any longer. Only mistakes to mend. Perhaps far too many... far too late. Tools in tow on route to this assignment that I willingly accepted, why does my hand clench tight? Why make a fist here? Now? Do I yet have fire within me I wonder?
And are you a fucking retard? Do you even read? Can you even disprove what I just wrote in my first posts? Can you?
Are you born before 1998? Was this projection? I swear too many of you angry teens are spewing forth for someone sane to handle.
Judging that you are using a random reaction image in every post I can conclude that you're underage that just found out about 4chan yesterday.
I'm not even talking about your fist post, I'm talking about you 100% believe the memeposter that keep saying this game is about ERP.
Just leave this thread, we don't need more retard like you.
Are any of you boys nice enough to buy Heart of Thorns for me?
Day by day and night by night I've searched for purpose, a reason to push on with this maddening task when rusting joints and a withering heart rot away in the confines of this miserable birdcage. No matter what parasites I fell, no matter what evil I undo, it's all replaced, rejuvenated and renewed two-fold the moment sun sets upon these sullied docks.
These crimson-soaked hands have betrayed me, just as would-be paragons failed me before. I'm no hero and I never was, not as a Lionguard and not as I am now. I can't win... I can't do this alone... this second chance was all for naught....
What have I become...?
Calm your autismo friend. Though it seems me giving credibility to someone saying ERP was one of the only appeal to the game triggered you. Good luck dealing with whatever shit this highschool is going to throw at you.
The work hours drown me in smiling gossips. These passers-by... how many know? How many care? How many contribute to the pooling stain that creeps up and over a once pristine coast and rolling plain? And... where are you in all this? The arch's shadow still proudly looms over the bay, smug and lazy. I curse each pass I draw with this welder: more lines to this city's murky and remorseless crosshatching. My stomach twists and sinks into my feet. I've become what we had both set ourselves against. And yet I know you still linger. You were always stronger. I knew this. Tonight, when my wretched shift is done, when the great clock shudders into reset, I'll find my way along this tarnished coast to the whisper's den near my old patrol. From that high widow's watch, I'll wait; I'll glare; I'll grit my fangs; and I'll start my search for the only other wisp of fire left in this den of villains. I do this neither as a lauded hero nor as a self-proclaimed savior. No titles left. No presumptuous purpose. I'm merely Schneppa. And I will find you, my only comrade.
>retarded shameless butthurt beta ugly permavirgin thinks he has the right to tell anyone what to do
Well, at least you protected their privacy by applying sensible censorship.
Subjective question. I currently like GW2 best, largely because it's got a lot of things that others don't, making me think the other games fall short. Gameplay-wise it's alright, but content is lacking. Been looking into BnS, but the game is outdated with 5 years on the timer so far, the only thing that really keeps it up is the combat system/PvP.
I know it's a subjective question, I wanted subjective answers. Thanks for your answer.
I'm gonna try BnS when it comes out and if I don't feel like playing it after a while, I'm thinking about starting GW2 again (haven't played for 2 or even 3 years).
That's what I was trying to say, yeah. Gw2's still got a lot of things to do, but in the terms of endgame, you're limited to PvP, WvW, completion, Raids and Fractals at this point, "fashion endgame and erp" not included.
The only thing BnS has going for it is its combat system and PvP, really. Fashion endgame/waifu sim probably works too.
Working PvP, not trying to force esports. Either esports happens, or it doesn't, never force it.
Working WvW, would be nice to fix some stuff.
Completion takes so long, yea.
Raids, oh wow, this even needed an expansion, congratz.
Fractals. Yea, no. Could have been decent but are ruined by Ashits.
>PvP, WvW, completion, Raids and Fractals at this point,
What are expecting? That's already a lot. Let me tell you that the 2 "high end" dungeon in BNS at level 40 cap are only at CoE and CoF level.
Other games usually have their gear treadmill before new raids and shit are doable, largely. Gw2 (luckily?) doesn't have that. Other games don't have their Raids/Dungeons (Fractals, nowadays) limited to only one worthwhile payout a day/week.
I'm not one of the people advocating "HUR DUR DED GAEM DONT BOTHER."
>Gw2's still got a lot of things to do
C'mon, guys. Don't bait out Reading Comprehension posts. I've said in my first two posts that I'm not interested enough in BnS and what it has to offer.
mfw have Saber, Tousaka and Asuna characters
Your tripfagging bothers us more you Chechen
Some do, names of baiting namefags are a good example.
Tripfags are even worse.
its just a reflection of the game, since when they release content there is a lot down time inbetween, giving people nothing to post about
the threads are good when new stuff gets updated to the game, but people usually blow through that content within days
You see. Don't do this, talk about the game. We do not stop you from talking about the game.
What do you guys feel about this shatterer update? Is it considered real content just to change a boss around? Would you guys like to see all the world bosses be reworked or would you guys like something entirely new?
What about cantha, ring of fire, or elona? Would this be better content to explore for longer periods of time?
I'm going to go ahead and answer all your questions.
Too little, too late.
Heart of Thorns was a coup de grace.
Sorry, it's only the truth. You in particular do a lot of "oh hello," "I'm here now" or "don't talk to me bitch" posts. You are part of the problem by making this about yourself, so please do not insult people's intelligence by acting sanctimonious about it.
I personal think Cantha is a dead issue and I could not care less. Weeaboo locales/add-ons are rarely interesting when they get tacked on.
The Ring of Fire is just a volcanic zone, please no, unless they're going to actually make it interesting with cliff cities and shit.
I'd like to see Elona, since games rarely do good desert/Mideast content, but we're kinda full up on generic desert after DT and SW. I'd want to see more savannah type stuff.
And yes, significant reworks of a boss are content.
Again. We do not stop you from talking about the game.
Cantha is an entire continent to explore with two opposing factions which could give lots of content. Plus they could even use it to introduce a new evil to the game.
Ring of Fire is a volcanic zone true but they could go more into it since that is where the gods dropped off the bloodstone so it could be a potential raid I suppose.
That just might be your feelings for a desert location. But look at your map and look at how huge they are. Its a lot of potential content due to being such a large region to explore.
But with how reworks work in guild wars 2. Do you really see yourself doing this boss over and over when you could be doing new dungeons due to older content being nerfed? This boss is a one time a day thing when instead numerous dungeons with multiple paths will prove to be more entertaining.
The only thing this game could go in any positive direction is if anet pulls their head out of their asses and stops with the esports shit. I don't even understand how players can defend anet "its not the devs fault for the bunker meta, just the players finding ways for it", even if most of the specializations were defensive oriented or gave huge defensive boni.
Fractals could have had potential, but were butchered every single time instead of putting work into it once. The fractured update showed promise, but there was literally no follow-up to it. Fractals, one of the big points of the core game are just shit.
WvW, one of the advertised features is abandoned by the devs because of "muh esports".
PvP is just playing against yourself, there is literally no fun in bunkering the game modes, the new game mode is trash too. Players were telling anet that they didn't want PvE elements in their PvP, and then created stronghold. Fantastic joke. Conquest will always be more defensive oriented.
PvE should be good with raids, no idea about that so I am not going to say anything.
Maybe one day the esports trash is going to stop, hell even AoE 2 has more esports than this and doesn't force it at all
No, but you provide a focal point for shitposting, and more importantly, you respond to it which generates more of it. It's not about stopping anyone, it's about sapping interest when it's just people interested in attention posting nonsense at each other.
No, sorry, I'm still not interested in any of that. Cantha is just chinky-chinky stereotypes full of chinky-chinky tropes. I'd really only want that if it's what the whole game was focused on where you could either get faithful immersion or lots of depth to show the nuance and differences from regular chinaland. A weeaboo add-on just uses the setting as a shorthand, so players see "ah, it's asia" and then they fill in the details themselves, ensuring it will be the most shallow representation possible.
but really vidya is choked with brown n bloom already. No more deserts for a while please.
Yes, I do. I still go out of my way to do teq, sometimes as a warm up to the rest of the time I spend in gw2. I haven't done the Shitterer on purpose in years.
My biggest issue with anet is that they go out of their way to remove all the incentives of the game and make the rewards painfully minimal at best.
It could be an issue with luck but I didn't find raids that rewarding. I did receive an ascended chest piece which is alright though. But that's what I expected, while many members of my party did not obtain one. You could say this is a part of raiding but if the wing is only 3 bosses I expect to be able to gear up my party properly. Especially since odds are I already have ascended gear if I am there in the first place.
When they add content to the game it's often incomplete such as the fractal wings. Like whats the hold up on that right?
As for the pvp content I don't pvp much so I am not too aware of that although the new map is horrible.
Filter me that's why the name is there.
Your replies about cantha is pretty hilarious I don't think I want to discuss something along the lines of chinky-chinky tropes.
Brown and bloom could be done properly. We could go into the origins of glint or even have the desert changed into crystal due to the name crystal desert. Because why the fuck not?
You do teq out of the numerous bosses in the game most likely for the chance at getting his hoard. I'm sure you would do a dungeon instead or even a better event if the rewards were worth it.
The rewards in this game were always "meh" at best, I don't understand it at all, honestly. I remember doing PvE while Lion's Arch was build up again, dungeons gave at least 1g and you did them within 10 minutes at most, but fractals gave 2g total for a minimum of 40 minutes. Their reward system is really bad, I believe you get more rewards for the daily login than playing any further than that.
I really enjoyed older events like Queens Crucible? I mean sure loldeadeye but doing the event itself was really rewarding, you were able to jump in at any level and have fun.
It wasn't that creative since all you did was run in a circle and kill stuff but it worked. Even the scarlet invasions are better than what we have now. This whole get rewards at the end is shit.
Who said you could talk to me pleb?
You are still not understanding: your antics contribute to an atmosphere that inhibits discussion. Filtering you does not bring back people who have already thrown up their hands and said "eh, the namefags/shitposters are at it again, I'll go do something else."
>could be done properly
Not to be negative about anet, but do you believe they would do it "properly" whatever that means? You already have a couple examples of how they do desert zones.
Actually, no, I do teq for the karma/gold/burst of mats. I would pity anyone who does teq only with the hope of getting an ascended box. I've gotten a couple and they're not frequent enough to expect. Dungeons do not provide the same volume of mats/gold/karma. Definitely not now.
You see "incomplete" and I see "do that some other time." I'm fine will chilling on whatever since there are plenty of other things to do/work toward.
Look at it like guild halls. Can you get every possible decoration right now? No, of course not since they're going to continually add more. It doesn't gall me knowing I can't get stuff right now.
Quitting because you don't like what someone says? Haha pussies.
Properly is to compensate for my time spent with said reward.
Actually many people do it just for that. Because there are numerous ways to receive mats at a better pace. The karma is not bad though. Dungeons were amazing this recent change to them was awful and destroyed something the game did well. I still enjoy doing dungeon paths though.
Why would you do it some other time when they tried to lure you into this content with the idea of these legendaries wings? That was their selling point of the expansion when they showed it off and now they are saying oh sorry its not done yet.
Would you be okay with the idea of showing of this revenant when advertising the game but at launch it wasn't there? I don't see the difference unless you pull a oh its a class not a back piece.
I agree fuckface happy birthday.
The whole Crown Pavilion felt somehow rewarding, you could do whatever you wanted there. Wanted to do some 1v1 challenge? Go to the upper bosses, wanted to just brainlessly zerg around? Go kill the lower bosses.
The most fun to me was definitely the Marionette or Triple Trouble, granted you had to be on an organized TS for the latter. The rewards for the Marionette were decent too, but Triple Trouble had trash rewards. A lot of the game needs a complete overhaul, anet should stop trying to do everything at once and put effort into one game mode, bring it to 100%. Then go to the next, polish it up, rinse and repeat. 3 months per game mode would be the best. 3 months for pure PvP like maps, gamemodes. 3 months for PvE like adding new raids or dungeons. 3 months for WvW to add features. While they do all that they have 1 team working on balancing the whole time and release balance patches regularly.
Not everyone has the same level of tolerance for it and that's okay. We're all different. My main issue right now is that it's all that's left.
I don't know this person in-game, nor would I want to. I prefer my privacy.
We seem to have different definitions of "properly". By your definition it could be a blank room with a box of loot. If your only concern is loot, why do you care if it comes from Cantha or a blank room? I'm more interested in the holistic experience.
>mats at a better pace
But not the straight up gold, which is about 1.75g. It is a good change of pace if the alternative is SW until your eyes bleed (which I've done plenty of too).
Because there's lots of other things to do. Why keep beating one's head against a wall when there are other goals to achieve. "legendary backpiece" was definitely not the only selling point of the xpac, not by a long shot.
Your revenant example is a poor one and you even said why. A class is not a skin.
>You are still not understanding: your antics contribute to an atmosphere that inhibits discussion. Filtering you does not bring back people who have already thrown up their hands and said "eh, the namefags/shitposters are at it again, I'll go do something else."
Spot-on, eristic please take off your name
You made many good points. I just want new fun events to return not spend 900g on drinks.
It isn't a poor one though.
This is written by anet showing off the back piece. And when the game released it was not there. What stops them from doing it with a class?
He can leave the name on for all I care, it's clearly very important to him. I take exception at his shitty behavior, such as demonstrated here >>128775303
It's just feeding shitposting, and neither he nor the shitposter will get tired of it because they're both getting what they want.
I replied politely didn't I? I could've bullied him. And you all know I love to bully...
Burnzerkers will still be using Vipers armor right? I really dont see how it wouldnt. It's the only way to keep both bleeding and burning at 100%
I just watched the stream and they didnt specifically mention removing the 33% buff either. So i'm not completely sure.
Again you're insulting everyone's intelligence by pretending to not understand. You know full well it's not the tone, but rather the (you) you're handing out that keeps your shitposter fueled. You've also dropped all pretense of talking about the game, which I admit was refreshing. You're clearly capable of being a decent and intelligent poster, so you've just decided to shit the place up by baiting replies. That's unfortunate for everyone, really.
You might want to wait before sinking in some money. The changes are going to come down on the 26th, aren't they?
Ha nah condescending isn't a compliment senpai.
But anywho with the subject of revamped bosses which bosses are you tyrians looking forward to? I'd say shadow behemoth because coming across it the first time as a new player was amazing.
No condescension intended. I really do think you could do better.
I'm not sure what they could do to SB that would be meaningful without making it fuck over any actual lvl10 who showed up. It'd be nice if they did something, but I don't really know how they would.
And Golem Mk 2. That could use some work.
I think Anet lost their focus that people are still new to this game. With the launch event they encouraged new people to attend but all it did was destroy them and waste all of their money.
Hi! Are you a new player? I love new players.. Please post your /age for me.
Nah, I think they're still focused on new players. It anything, probably more so since the barrier to entry is nonexistent now with f2p. Also they mentioned in the Shitterer article that they were designing it keeping the zone level in mind. Given that they've already acted to keep starter zones less vulnerable to lvl80 antics (killing the champ train, no map bonus, etc) they're still thinking of what a new player sees.
I'm honestly beginning to wonder if NCSoft is/was actually the one pressuring the ESports shit now, with ANet being forced to go along with it.
It's fairly obvious that it's not working and that it should've been dropped long ago.
I agree. I'm honestly really worried about it. If they actually do something "interactive" with the housing like allowing players to make their own little quests and whatnot on top of the already extensive system in place, it might just sustain the game's life indefinitely so long as nobody just has a whim to shut it down entirely.
You're a dirty korrupted little slut, you know that right?
Pretty much, the only real "things to do" as a guild with enough replayability is RP (therefore erp).
Everything else either doesn't require actually interacting with people (open world PvE), has a cap of once per week (raids), or it's balance is absolutely fucked and is hardly worth doing (PvP/WvW/dungeons).
I'm trying to level up my maguuma mastery level, but it's very slow. I already saw guys with 150-160 mastery level.
Is there any way to farm them?
getting heropoints/map exploration for other classes elite specs helped a ton
remember exp boosters work on mastery xp so if your guild has the xp buff grab that as well as the laurel one if you dont have any stored
Work on all the achievements don't farm dragons stand then complain about how boring the game is literally all of the maps give the same amount of xp as it if you do their meta
It doesn't seem like anet dropped it at all, and I don't think it was NCsoft starting the esports too.
During the time GW2 was pushed to become esports, anet and NCsoft were already in a sort of grey area
He's not wrong though anon. Making "humans, but pointy earred!" is pointless when you can just make.. more humans, instead, like GW1. Or something that isn't a Strek Trek style wrinkle-forehead alien, like most of GW2's options.
Fucking Norn and to a lesser extent sylvari. This would have been the perfect example otherwise.
Go big or go home, anon. Fuck these knife-earred half-measures.
I do agree that it's fun to have an array of other races in an MMO, it does mean they have to cut corners on animations and modeling new armor though.
Or the graphics/game mechanics. The effort put into playable races means you have to cut funds for other cool shit.
And that sucks.
>failed to kill sabetha again this week
>gors drops me my 2nd power ghost infusion in a row
I am completely okay if this carries on a daily basis
Which is why I prefer the effort spent on things that are very clearly nonhuman - if you'e going to spend the effort it might as well be on a horned catman or a horrible big-headed ayylmao than on some elf who's only slightly different in proportions than a human.
If that means you end up with less races - or even just humans - that just means you have more dev time to pour into their aesthetics and lore.
no memes breh. Got the first one from gors on the last saturday, and the second one today from gors again.
>doubling Sneak Gyro's CD
>ArenaNet is never going to split balance between PvE and PvP
I hate this.
PvE shitter detected.
Pretty much this. Can't wait for scrapper to be Meta^2 next balance patch. :^)
Even with a shared patrol, we were always worlds apart. Wait as I waited upon the dilapidated concrete, gasping for breath as a sundered ribcage coaxes your diaphragm to twitch out scant molecules of air, the cold moonlit sky drying your tongue as childish dreams shatter to reality's brutal wrecking ball. And as your lungs grow numb and bitter feelings reemerge on that long and endless night, only then could we ever meet to forge a tenable flame, one that burns with mutual awareness of cruel and ruthless truths.
Because no matter how much Engi dick you choke on in PvP, the nerfs are almost always unnecessary in PvE mode. Engi PvP is fun for stomping random people but there are times when I would almost prefer Engineer was flat out banned in PvP just so ArenaNet would stop turning nice things into garbage and garbage things into ashes.
Teach your shit profession how to deal with them already and leave my farmville meta alone. I want to walk around Auric Basin and collect Flax without having to fight twenty raptors at every other node.
You know, it does suck that theyre making it 40 too, but gosh darn it was a bit too good at 20...
I only hate the nerf because now i cant be lazy as much on my engie, otherwise it is needed and fair
Rangers are the shitters go to profession
Mesmer players that use GS are also one of the biggest shitters, since they have the best melee range survivability in the game with their one handed weapons
TLDR Mesmer using GS is a shitty player, who gives a fuck about ranger, tempihealer is better
Please, PLEASE decrease the size of your scanned shit before you post it.
keep you working files as big as you want, but look at what I've got to deal with here.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
You do more damage in melee while being more useful.
Greatsword is only relevant if you're too bad to survive without it, so what do you think that tells us about the players who use it?
Is that good? That.. Sounds good but i dont know junk about cameras
Does it help if i spoiler them?
Alright, lay it down on the table so I can hit it with this spoon.
it's okay I guess, not really an issue unless you're printing the photos.
spoiling doesn't help, since that doesn't do anything but hide the thumbnail,
and I want to actually see the image because I like your shit.
are you POSTING from your phone, or just taking the photo, uploading to your PC and posting there? if it's on your pc you can just drop that shit into mspaint and resize to like 25% and it'll be easier to see (pic related)
>tfw when you want to yell at the idiot engaging the attention whore, but baiting reponses will provide more ammunition for a avatarfagging ban

So will the new raid wing come with 3 encounters?
Why do you keep posting this same cute brown girl, and where is she from?
Was I always this weak? My fire flickers as I tread this old beat again. My dilapidated garb frays and rips. Exposed flesh to this night's air is like salt in an open, festering wound. My tired spirit clings: red, chapped fingers pinching down onto a crumbling cliff. I've searched the city, but I was wrong to abandon my post in the first place. I'll begin my journey back through the sneering causeways and grasping alleys. I'll stand sentinel atop the whisper's den. Now. Today. Tomorrow. I have nothing left to give but my word, and I won't abandon this lilting heat in the dead of winter.
Complete shit at MMOs and have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing, just hit level 80 on first character. What the fuck am I supposed to do now? I've been doing everything alone for the most part. No guilds or anything. Why do most guilds want a fucking application to join? It's retarded.
Because there's bare to no line between mapchats and ones that need three forms to fill out before you can join. Just tag up with FUN or HOPE depending on your server and have fun with them. They're decent.
last I saw, blade and soul was a waifu simulator, not a gay furry simulator.
GW2 is pretty safe.
i'm tired of roaches in my pvp matches not knowing anything about basic pvp strategy
I legitimately had like 4 promises to keep tonight and this one fell through. I'm sorry. I will be on tomorrow--same time. Just send me a mail or something if you have another time in mind. I'll check.
Idk, they seem great at this level. I can literally pull packs of 8-15 mobs my level or higher and melt them all in about 8 seconds with my turrets. Being able to drop aggro them sometimes if I need to top off helps too.
When does the scaling kill them?
When everything starts one-shotting them and/or shrugging off the damage. In the open world, they'll be okay, but not great for a long time. But open world is easy, which is why I said who cares.
For instanced content, you're going to want those kits.
I'll work on them next I guess.
Am I more of a ranged dps class or support btw in PvE? I'm having a great time freestyling my own way in PvE so I'm less worried about that role. I just never PvE so I wanna know what people are gonna expect of me.
The BnS thread is way too lewd, do not go there. Finally Guild Wars 2 is going to be pure!Does this shatterer update coincide in terms of magical frequencies and such? And what's the chances of it becoming ridic OP?
>BnS is lewd
Time to open up a new tab.
Lyn Blade Master looks fun.
Anyone else hype for Mesmer being dead in the PvP meta? :^)
I wish I could drown in female asura. I would just let them pile upon me until my breathing was restricted. Then only then would I die happy as I struggled to take my last breath and finally pass into peaceful afterlife.
God fuck do I know that feel.
I wish I could go back in time and kill Vuncia before he could ever start avatarfagging.
This is all your fault.
I checked this thread after a 7 month hiatus from gw2.
And I got to say, all the charr spam has made me not want to play even more.
btw all my characters are charr so it's not about furfag hate.

Prior to the xpac was there any indication Anet didn't know what to do with Eir and Faolain? I can't see why else they'd take such a heavy shit on them at the same time in Prisoners of the Dragon considering how important they've been portrayed to conflicts yet to be resolved.
Just getting back into the game
I remember before I left, I bought an outfit on the store and equipped it. When I got a new piece, I had to buy transmutation charges to get the look back on the new piece.
That was just what pushed me over the edge with this game, so I have to ask... Is that still the case?
I swear to fuck m8. At this point can I say that this meta "triggers" me? I have PTBMD. Post Traumatic Bunker Mesmer Disorder.
Fuck Cele too. Its some goddamn bullshit.
I am admitting hype for the new ammies and the possible "paced power meta" (ie; not a oneshot fest) we might get.
If not Im fucking out. Nearly four years waiting for this game to stop giving me cancer. But with Mally, Scepter Mes aka ChronoCondiCancer half dire Thief and Trapper Ranger I dont see a bright future.
Can someone explain what A.Net's update plan is for this year? I just skipped over the blogpost when they released it and was flooded with way to many marketing buzzwords. Are they actually just going to release 4 patches this year? Does the january patch already count? It seems to not have a lot of meat on it
>gliding in tyria which was literally just flicking a switch
>QoL fractals (no new content)
>couple new keybinding options
Is this supposed to entertain us for 3 months? Is the legendary set 2 already dead?
From what it seems like, from what it's always been. It's safe to say that each quarter will have feature packs. Every couple weeks starting from whenever Living Story Season 3 begins we'll have the same bi-monthly patches.
And before ever PvP Season we will have balance patches.
W/ shatterer it's safe to say that a boss week will occur, similar to what happened w/ Tequatl.
Legendary Generation 2 isn't dead, but the next set of 3 haven't been announced yet. I think the only word we got about those were Colins "oh, new legendaries look really awesome btw guys". tease.
>but the next set of 3 haven't been announced yet
Well we are 3 Months into the expansion I think and are still stuck with the first 3 weapons.
The first raidwing lasted "us" like 2 weeks. Not really challenging, it just needed build optimization.
Can you explain why it's a failure? I think raid is the most fun content in game and this is coming from someone who haven't killed sabetha and no static raid group.
It's much better than "skipping mobs and stack in one place" instance called dungeon.
If we're talking objectively with comparisons made to content outside of GW2, the raids are subpar challenges. The shallow mechanic pool and engine of GW2 just don't allow for a really diverse combat experience. They're basically on par with or below Wildstar dungeons.
It's hard to call them failures to people who play GW2, though, because they probably still are some of the better content additions to the game. However, it's not hard to set the bar higher than previous attempts, when the bar has basically been lying on the ground for three years.
You'll never see decent combat in a game which gives every single one of its players such rampant access to instant, effective invincibility as well as instant-travel, often lethal ranged damage. Vitality should have never been a gear stat, health pools should have been far more normalized, the game should have limited its skill sets to like 5-8 total skills if they wanted to actually promote any playstyles among classes, and health should have just been a base stat in all armor pieces which scales with the ilvl (and then quality once things hit 80). The game is borked.
>wants people to chill with his charr
>but not other charr
I don't understand.
Because of the trans charges???
Its not like playing till sapphire is that much of a time investment considering you'd get what, 40 charges maybe? Heck you can even play stronghold and games can finish really fast. Never suggested farming charges till legendary.
Anyone want to do dungeons?
I haven't played in over a year.
I'd do anything if someone buys Heart of Thorns for me.
Why would they do that? Is there anything even left to do in the game?
Daily Fractals give you at least 10g now, if you open the Encryption boxes with discounted keys you can buy on a daily basis.
It's still RNG, but the vendor-trash-items can yield up to roughly 35g.
Also, the drop-rate for Ascended gear boxes from the Daily Fractal Champion reward chest isn't half-bad.
Other than that, there's the HoT maps and raids.
Welp. I guess I won't be coming back to this game.
I miss my friends. ;_;
>getting tricked into buying HoT
You do realize that it was literally just paying 50$ for a patch? People who bought it a week after release, knowing how much content it actually has, are massive cucks and most likely have serious mental problems.
If you hate the xpac that much then you're the real cuck here, complaining about the fact that people bought and enjoy a game that you don't like.
If that's your definition of p2w then every single fucking MMO on the market is p2w because expansions always have more powerful shit and you end up getting left in the dust if you don't buy into it. I don't know why the fuck you'd even be playing the game past the xpac if you weren't keen on getting it.
Shitposting, man. I understand having gripes with the expansion but trying to drive off new people from buying it is pretty fucking gay when you're treating what you say as fact when it's not.
Aw, I've not really been playing gw2 much the past week or so as I bought a game from the steam sales and I've been enjoying it a lot. I hope you're well and havin fun. Maybe we could hang out sometime in game in the near future? I wouldn't mind running a dungeon again if we got the ppl together for it :)
I wish these were as exciting to open as they were in gw1
>mfw come across someone with the character name "Charr Fleshlight"
Damn, fresh air tempest actually can provide might fury as effective as herald and the warhorn has some good CC. Their personal dps will be much higher too with that ferocity buff. You fucked up anet.
