    I played it for about a year. It was okay but the writing was garbage and it had the worst final bosses of any MMO I've ever played.

    Also, a question to anyone who has played the game more recently: Did they ever make the choices at the start of the game meaningful beyond the very early game? And what about the home instance, did that ever become useful. It pissed me off a lot that those potentially interesting aspects of the game were completely ignored after the start of the game.

      home instance is one of the biggest passive income sources in the game, but you have to spend hundreds of gold or real money to get it up and running

      early game choices never really mattered again, though

        Definitely. You can see how in many aspect the game has gotten worse. You are doing frickin yoga, fighting anxiety and discussing feelings while fighting bosses. The clothes became less and less revealing or skintight (for female characters only). Just to name a few issues. If it's the same team behind it (which it will be) it will suck.

            Which in turn means the game has been relatively fricked from the start, since organized PvP and WvW is/was supposed be the late game that sustains the game. Not raids, dungeons, Strikes or open world garbage.

          You can't really even consider it a complete class since they can't pick their utilities. It's funny since the guy who was the Revenant class lead came off as he actually had some mental defect every time they showed him on stream.

      "missable" living world stories haven't been a thing for over a decade, they only did those a couple of times at the very start but then you can now replay the story segments anyway. You might have to unlock stuff with diamonds though (pay currency) but you can buy diamonds with cold (farmable currency) but you can't miss anything anymore.

    • 2 weeks ago

      You are a zoomer and most Ganker are 30 year old boomers who actually played Guild Wars 1 and therefore have a proper basis of comparison
      Guild Wars 1 was a unique rpg that implemented a magic the gathering style approach to character customization. Your character was compromised of a Primary class and a Secondary class, and each class could learn hundreds and hundreds of different skills. The skills your character had access to was limited to the sum of skills of each individual class that comprised your character. Out of these hundreds of options, your character could have 8 active skills, ie readily usable in battle. So a huge part of the fun of the game was messing with the different combinations of skills to produce a character that fulfilled a meaningful role in your content of choice

      Want to a Fire mage? Sure, load your skill bar up with flame spells after picking Elementalist as your class. You will be kickass at dealing mass aoe damage, but there are plenty of situations where you might wish you had utility from Water spells or Earth spells instead. Of course, you can always take a couple of those skills to round your character out, but he can still only bring 8, and you always feel that pressure caused by diluting your niche for the sake of achieving versatility. Every skill matters.

      It was a challenge to the player to design their own niche, their own playstyle, and deal with the limitations of the system, because one player simply can't do it all. It was so fricking cool.

        After playing Guild Wars this was the direction I was hoping MMOs would take. Seeking out hidden bosses, quests or locations to obtain new skills and enhance your build variety is far more compelling than filling up your XP bar.

        GW2 had me so excited about combo fields leading into the game. I was thinking o wow all of those skills you will obtain could chain off each other with team work to create critical status effects. Then I found out it had a boring WoW skill tree. I was on copium so fricking hard because of their positive brain wash propaganda. O the gear is less important, because we made every reward grey shit. Enemies will always be challenging cause we down scaled it. The entire point of capping players at level 20 in GW1 and that long exodus was the thirst to power up by obtaining stronger abilities.

    I started playing again because every mmo I play is in a drought and my main gripe is I'm 80 with full exotic gear (I got to 80 and used one of the boosts to get free gear) and I don't know how to advance gear after this

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      first, make sure your gear has the right prefixes and runes for how you want to play. The 80 boost gear doesn't.

      then you either grind out materials to craft ascended gear or you grind one of the endgame content islands to buy it

      but you don't really NEED ascended gear unless you plan on doing fractals, the stat upgrade is fairly minimal

          power dps is the easiest to build for, just get Berserker's equipment which you can get basically anywhere
          condition dps generally wants Viper's, which is only from the first expansion onwards
          healers generally want Harrier's which is from the second expansion onwards

          going deep into the meta sometimes calls for other prefixes mixed in but that's a general good rule of thumb.

      Anonymous

      There is no gear treadmill, you're essentially done unless you want to get different stats for a different build. Ascended gear IS a little bit better, like 10% more stats at most iirc. Almost nothing in the game requires ascended gear, you can do everything in the game with exotics besides higher tier fractals.

      You can get a few pieces of ascended gear from wizardmart (the new daily system, default shift+h i think). You can get ascended drops from a lot of content like fractals, strikes, wvw etc. You can also craft ascended gear, gw2efficiency has a page for most cost effective ones to craft. Ascended items can have their stats changed with a mystic forge recipe, if you get a piece that isn't quite what you want. As far as what stats you actually want, you may want to check a build guide since there are so many stats and stat lines.

      Also, in 2022 they supposedly made some changes to some older clothes/gen store items that made them "more appropriate" but it mostly was just changes that prevented pantyshots by adding "shadow" (read: black void) and additional strips of cloth here and there.

      The game would die if they did that. The lfg system for GW2 is terrible, and if players could just do fractals with heroes, they'd never use that lfg.

      GW2 always had fricking abysmal writing but now they aren't even bothering to hide the fact they're just using the game as a megaphone to cope and sneed about IRL American politics. GW1 didn't deserve to be associated with such trash.

        The written has got even worse if you can believe that, the latest expansions story is so poorly written I genually have no fricking clue what the hell is even going on or why we're fighting those weird demon things.

    I've not played for ages, but I read they've added a lot. One thing I like is that unlike a lot of FOMO shit apparently GW2 had a lot of QoL features - reagent bank, unlocking shit account wide et.. that other MMOs didn't. It had downsides too - the one thing i always hated was
    >Dye system with NO FRICKING DEFAULTS
    Unlocking dyes on a granular level, account wide and applying them to your equip is great. However, its fricking insane that each new piece of gear you equip last I checked INHERITS THE SAME DYE OF THE PREVIOUS ONE YOU HAD IN THE SLOT. There's no "default" look for each item and even those show on the cash shop or whatnot you have to sort out to make them the color you want (ie I remember that there was a gleaming knightly armor set thing that was supposed to be silver, but just trying it on had it take on the shit brown coloration of what was previous in the slot and its not like I even had the proper shaders unlocked to get to the silver etc). If they'd put so much emphasis on customization, you'd think you could buy a new bit of gear and THEN dye it what you want from its default each time, rather than dye the slots and eveything stick to that.
    >but dye remover
    I hoped this would work, but it seems "dye remover" is not "remove the dye, just have the default coloration" but is instead "a slightly more orange shitsmear brown" color of its own. I have no fricking idea what is going on here!? Have they fixed this shit somehow?

        >Search GW2 Dye Remover
        >Pages of people questioning what is being actually displayed, talking about problems with the varying colors, defaults not being default but instead some generic for the type of equipment, older equipment made before dye system apparent overhaul affected differently, other problems
        Frick off with this homosexualry. Clearly its still an issue but maybe less of one than it used to be close to launch thanks to a dye system overhaul.

        They wren't even subtle about it either, even the hard core leftist side of the playerbase thought EoD's writing was cringe.
