My necro from the final beta weekend big grin

April 27th or 28th is the release date for the retail

is it better then WoW?

BackFire
It's different from WoW.

My friend has been playing it for a while now, so he tells me quite a lot about it.

First and foremost, this isn't a MMOG, you actually play with only a few other people at a time, the only time it's massive is in town (I think) when you're just idling or chatting.

The game is basically, as the name suggests, based on group pvp. You get in a guild and battle against another team, this is basically the whole game.

I won't be playing it myself, doesn't look like it would hold my interest for very long.

forumcrew
i really like the game so far, been playing for a few days and its really fun

BackFire
I just picked it up today, after playing on my friends account for a couple of hours. Pretty fun game, so far so good.

Anyone else playing it?

SaTsuJiN
Me.. my warrior is Satosa Jin big grin

my real life friends invited me to their guild called Xile

So, say you've been playing CoH for about six months, and now want a comparable D&D experience... is Lineage II or WoW a better route to take over Guild Wars? Certainly sounds like it...

SaTsuJiN
lol I can hardly imagine someone roleplaying in lineage 2 with how steep the grind is.. WoW may provide more of a role play experience (I think thats what you mean anyway), as they have strict roleplaying servers

Primitive Screwhead
How much worse is grinding in Lineage II compared to CoH? Using a bunch of mid-20/30 level characters in that one, I can't imagine Lineage being THAT much worse...

BackFire
Lineage II is the king of the grind, the whole game is based on the grind. I'd suggest WoW, big time. Role Playing is a big part of that game, especially if you join a Role Playing server.

BackFire
Thats why I never preorder anything, I hate making a commitment to a store and then they screw up and don't get it on the right day.

forumcrew
yea i walked into gamestop on wednesday and bought it they even gave me the preorder box so i could log in that day and not wait for wide release on thursday.. pre-ordering is stupid

RaventheOnly
well i preordered because i knew i would have no money at this moment laughing out loud plus i really can;t play right now anywway laughing out loud

Konjammenson
so i went into eb games today to due some browsing. i asked the guy if he had played guild wars? he said no, but he advised against it because its not actually free like it says. he said that its free, but then upgrades keep coming out that you have to pay 20 dollars for.

is he full of crap? all ive heard is free online play, free online play, free online play. I am looking very possibly at buying this game.

BackFire
Yeah, there will be updates that will expand the game, but you don't have to buy them if you don't want to.

forumcrew
yea get it anyway.. theres TONS of stuff to do in the game

RaventheOnly
Yeah i can tell how that there are like 4 kingdoms ranging from ice to molten to desolate... and there are orc armies, undead armies , zerg like things and demons big grin

forumcrew
theres many kinds of dragons, giants, trolls, ghosts, snakes, big ass tremor worms, centaurs, theres everything you could want to kill and its long as hell.. there plenty of stuff to find and do after 20

FeceMan
Elementalist Ranger, methinks. Water or Air specialized. Perhaps a Necromancer Ranger, too. Or maybe a Necromancer Warrior.

Teh hawtness.

forumcrew
Rangers and Warriors are not the best secondary classes.. ranger is ok as it though, but warrior is close to useless at it

btw you can change your secondary after you ascend but at a great price

Konjammenson
i took your guys' advise and said screw the guy at eb games and got it anyway. just installed it an hour ago. this game is sweet!

RaventheOnly
Yeah it was funny cause me and my cusin thought the academy lvl was what the world was gonna be like hysterical and we walked out and the two year time elapse hit us laughing out loud and it was heck laughing out loud

And I already have a large guild with a hall and what not.. but i will look for some of you on there!

Mist
Just been having a look at some of the videos and stuff about this game the other day, and it looks pretty cool. I dont usually look into online rpgs, because they dont seem to be my thing, but this game looks awesome. Plus, the 'no subscription fee' is quite a lure big grin

So theres a high chance I'll be getting this game soon, but what is the general idea about this game, as in, what do people think about it?

Good, bad, could be better?

i've made a guild.....got 1 member so far...no expression

most people compare guild wars with World Of Warcraft and than say guild wars sucks....but some friends (WoW playing friends)of mine stopped WoW and bought Gw ...it might be because you don't have to pay monthly for it......and other not WoW players say if they bought 1 of the 2 games they would buy WoW because of the storyline (warcraft 1 warcraft 2 etc.)
but the funny thing is that the story in GW much cooler is than the one in WoW....the story also brings you trough the whole map....and explains what your goal in the game is......
you've got missions and quests....quests tell there own story (no cinamatics) and in each mission is a part of the head story (with youre party playing in cinematics).

another good part of it wich seems to be a disadvantage is that u cant lvl higher as lvl 20 ....but when you're lvl 20 youre expoints are used to get more skill points...(you need them to buy new skills and more)....so after level 20 u're still getting better because of the new skills you can get by doing quests.........

i hope you know enough now stick out tongue

Nope, I lost interest after about 2 weeks, too many new games kept coming out laughing out loud But I start holidays next week, so Ill bring it out again.


What did you have to do to get the Halloween costumes? Were they mission based rewards or could you buy them?

forumcrew
the halloween stuff you got in lions arch a guy came and you just had to use emotes for a while and then you got it. 2 weekS? i managed to put in 100 hours in 5 days cause i had been sick and had nothin to do with no classes or anything when the game was first released.. i played a ton for a couple months but even sorrows furnace couldnt keep my interest that much.

choosewisely
yes....more updates or gw 2.... ive got almost all the mesmer skills available no expression

Koala MeatPie
I have not played any video games scince Late September, And I suddently got the urge to play something where I can boost states, have tones of items and such and such.

I vacated Runescape members last summer and Did not want to join back. I wanted something similar, but with better graphics.

I played Diablo II to death, and I wanted something MORE, via internet, but without those cheaters and witha bigger more varied world.

So I walked into a future saw "Free Online Play" And I have yet to install it, Can't wait.

Ranger Elementist or Ranger Illusionist sounds fun.

Probly end up as Ranger Necro.

BackFire
God, no more Rangers, there's already too many of them.

JKozzy
Be a monk.... please laughing out loud

BackFire
Monks are so good.

crazy_shadow
some guy at school told me the game got old fast so i didn't get it. is this true though? I haven't played it yet. Or for an example, what game is it similar to?

SaTsuJiN
hmm.. have you played phantasy star online, or diablo 2?...

basically.. you start off in a city (a lobby).. theres no player limit for city areas... then there are action areas (the game) where anywhere from 2 to I think 4 or 8 players are allowed...basically mission fields and dungeons

then there is the pvp aspect.. that goes from 4 to I think 8 players per team

as for the financial aspect... you buy the game once.. you dont pay for anything else .. you only pay for expansions, if you 'choose' to purchase them.. and the game gets updated often as an MMO would

I ran a guild wars search on Youtube.com.. perhaps youll find videos here that'll give you a better insight

http://youtube.com/results?search=guild+wars&search_type=search_videos&search=Search

Mit
Meh, I got bored of it after about a week. Theres not a lot of player interaction, you have to form a party and go explore together, you cant just roam around and bump into people, the game loads a different area for each player, so it basically turns into a single player game erm

MadMel
oh man..i was gonna get this too. thnx for the tip tho mist.

One word: Oblivion.

I didnt really like the stat building and RPG elements of this game for some reason, just didnt seem as cool as other RPGs.

My guy was a Ranger/Elemantalist w00t I only picked Ranger so I could have a pet sleeping

Originally posted by MadMel

Depends what you're into, if you want a good MMO skip this and get Warcraft or something. If you want an RPG, meh, suppose you could give it a go. Personally, I wish I kept my money instead of buying it. erm

MadMel
i dont think im into online mmos, but the graphs on this mad me change my mind..until wat u said.. so ill stick to offline
rpgs

Koala MeatPie
I havn't read this thread scince now.

I ended up as Ranger Elemantalist.

Its exactly what I was searching for. (the game) really like it, Worth every penny.

I will Probably start another charcter as a Necro sub-Warrior And dunno what.

March 24th you get to play the expansion demo for free.

I played both, and I was hooked on diablo 2 for about 3 years straight. Phantasy star, i played with my friends for awhile then just kinda went "pff". but it was fun. if guild wars is like a combo with these, i'm definately getting it fear

I wouldn't know, I only bought the game last Wensday.

Why did they need to merge the economy? Merge with what?

AH SON OF A F°CK! MY BOW!!!!!

Koala MeatPie
GRRR


I Spent good money for this program and I expect it to work!
I bet this is all the fault of some new recruit accidentally pressing the "reset" button on the economy.

Just like there is a Reset button on all forums.
Like what happened to Pre-KMC in 2000.

Not its set for 2:00 am EST.

I was actually in-game when this happened.

You couldn't change town, Couldn't change District, or even leave town.
What happened was every Item Suddenly sold for 250gp.

Then the figured it out suppose, and Every Rune Merchant / Dye Merchant Suddenly had no Items to offer.

My guess is that, in addition to rewriting what each merchant is selling in each town, they have to reload the previous state of each member, seeing as each character is stored on there servers.

Nota: I have not played any video games scince October 2005 prior to me buying Guild Wars Last Wensday.

FoW Armour?

Putting the 3 economies together was a VERY smart idea.
Mostly because of the chaos Theory.

Otherwise Being Rich in the European Districts Could mean being poor in the American and Absolutly Godly in Korea.

And all the Prices would vary tooo much.

Koala MeatPie
Anybody pre-ordering Factions?

I'm not, I'm nto even going to buy it, f it is what they ar saying it is.

(a Stand Alone game)

Instead of being an expension pack for less $ then the original that emrges of it (Much like LOD with Diablo II)

Its going to be G.W. II : factions.

BUT It will include all other 6 classes if it is like that.

I just hope its a merging type of espantion and not a stand alone.
Because that would be just STUPID if tis stand alone. EASPECIALLY if they are releasing a new one each 6-9 months.

PLUS if they make it merging they will make more $, even if they lower the price.

Why?

Becasue to play the epensions you need Prophecies.

The play expension II you Need Prophecies AND Factions.

To play Expension 3 you need Prophecies, Factions AND Expantion II.

And so on so forth.

They could literly create and Empire.

JKozzy
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say, but you don't need Prophecies to play Factions...

forumcrew
yea this is not an expansion in the typical sense of the word. You can play factions if youve never played GW before. However if you have prophicies you will have the added bonus of being able to play both your prophecies characters in factions and your factions characters in prophecies which is pretty cool.

Kozzy i know ther are giving you 2 more character slots on factions if you buy prophecies... so will you then have just the 6 total? or will you also have like 4/6 seperate slots on factions as well.. im thinking its the latter of the 2 and it damn well better be.

Koala MeatPie
I did some snooping around and I have learned that it will be a FULL price stand alone game... Which you can merge with Prophecies.

IF only IF you merge with Prophecies, you will have 6 slots.

If you don't, you will have 4 slots with 8 types to choose from.

Koala MeatPie
So yes, my Name in GW is Koala MeatPie.

Some dick thought I was Australian, i told hm "No I am not Australian"

kool ppl here play gw as well. my ign is naota takhun, thats my main char.


hit me up ne time in game if u wanna play.

Lord Paradise
So, still no KMC Guild? That's a shame.

I just got Prophecies a week or two ago.

My only character right now is Lord Paradise PFM, R/Me (at the time, I didn't realize that there are way too many Rangers, but I'm getting a Warrior, Elementalist, and a Monk later, so no need to worry). I heart this game, and I intend to buy the other two after I've done all I need to do in the original.

Peach
Yeah, so, I'm bumping this back up as I've been playing GW a ton lately. I have Prophecies and Factions, but I've been playing the most on Factions. I just like it better.

Who else plays? I know Ush and GK do.

I keep swapping between two characters, Assassin/Ranger and Ritualist/Necromancer. The second one there? Fun combination.

Final Blaxican
I love this game, the gameplay is addicting.

I've never played it though. Would like to one day.

Peach
It's fun. More enjoyable than a regular MMO, I think, but part of it is because I hate dealing with stupid people and since this is very team-based you avoid most of that.

Though some stupidity is funny. Like the crowds of naked dancing people in towns...

Peach
Since we've completely derailed that one thread...

Originally posted by Burning thought
ime curious is guild wars armour more asthetic still than actual use? I remember when i hit level 20 and was looking at the best armour that it wasnt that much better than my current, it just looked much better..

I've noticed that the armor upgrades do make quite a bit of difference, but my two main characters are ones that have low max armor ratings, so yeah. A little definitely helps a lot there. But it seems to me is that there's simply more choices once you get into the higher armor ratings.

Ushgarak
In short, what Burning Thought says is true. By the time you hit level 20 you probably find the best armour there is- it certainly becomes available in all 3 campaigns long before the end, though as it costs 1000 per parts that is 5000 in all, which is probably going to be the thing that holds you back longe rthan finding it (especially in Factions and Nightfall where you find it relatively fast). The game is balanced around armour like that (by class), so in fact all armour before it is underpowered.

So yes, after that, armour is for the look of it.

Basically the average class tops out at armour 60, at which point the damage curve is normal. If you have less than 60 armour you take more damage than normal, if you have more than 60 you take less. 60 is the magic number in the damage formula GW uses.

BackFire
I was talking with my friend who has been playing Guild Wars for years, and he said The Dervish is probably the best class in the game, for PVP at least, that's all he cares about. I watched him play it and it did seem pretty powerful, massive damage that can hit multiple targets.

MIT
Might reinstall this later...

Peach
I want to give Dervish a try. That's basically why I want Nightfall. So I can make a Dervish.

I love Ritualist, though. It's so much fun.

Ushgarak
A Dervish is a straight-up Magical fighter, which was actually something GW hadn't done yet so it was a good idea. It is the closest the game has to a Paladin (minus the healing though).

So a Dervish is under-armoured and under-powered compared to a Warrior in a straight fight but uses Enchantments to boost both offence and defence to a superior point. And yes, the scythes they use have a multi-hit schtick.

More complex to use than Warriors, of course.

Peach
And I do love magic...big grin

Peach
Bought Nightfall yesterday, made a Dervish...yeah, it's a great class. Similar to Assassin in that it takes a bit of work to do well, but if you layer your enchantments right you can basically act as a tank (two of the first ones you get work great - one boosts up your HP a ton and the other boosts your damage, I always have them active). Which is cool. And then I went with Monk as my secondary.

SaTsuJiN
So in what order are the games?

I know they had the Orient themed expan, and the Egyptian themed expan.. but I kinda lost track of them after that

Ushgarak
The original (now called Prophecies) was European, then the Asian one was Factions. Then Nightfall- which was actually a bit broader than Egypt, having a big Persian area too.

That was the point where they abandoned the stand alone model when they decided that the game was going to bloat too much so they needed to make GW2 (still no sign). So to tie up things in the world they released the 'Eye of the North' expansion, which although an expansion for all three campaigns takes place in the frozen north areas of the original European-style setting (though it also added stuff like dungeons to the game).

Peach
And Eye of the North I still need to get.
