Uhhh kinda? There's still a big population of people and they're all like 30-40y boomers so everyone's pretty nice. There's a lot of "content" but all of the good content is in the expansions. And you have to buy expansions to get new stuff like mounts and gliders. The writing varies from "pretty ok" to "fucking garbage." The monetisation is actually pretty good.
Are you asking because you want to f2p or are you going to buy at least one expac so you can get the "full game" experience
Taimi is the worst fucking character, I want to wring that shitty mouses neck and throw her in lava. With how prevalent she is in the story along with her entire backstory and the fact that she gets a different hairdo and fashion in in between every major event makes me think shes definitely the writers oc or waifu.
Yeah she's exactly who I was thinking of when I said the writing was garbage. At a certain point I just had to stop paying attention because of how insufferable she was
I haven't played for years but have you forgotten Scarlet Briar or has Taimi gotten that bad?
Scarlet was a joker ripoff who had no rhyme or reason because Anet wanted to figure out how their ongoing content was going to work. if they absolutely had to have a villain for that arc, she was the perfect cast.
Now of course, they try to retcon her as some sort of tragic hero or whatever
>The monetisation is actually pretty good.
Kys, it was maybe okay during the first year of release. Definitely not after.
are u furry/homosexual or both? if not don't bother
very few MMOs are actually worth it, so you can choose between WoW, FFXIV, GW2, something weird like Albion or RS, or whatever korean cashgrab is fotm
pretty sure they all have a free trial of some sort
the alternative is playing weird private servers with 20 other swetty dudes
only if you're a tranny
i met a girl in gw2 and lost my virginity with her
based. same is true for me and vanilla wow. many desperate girls back then. god I miss the internet pre social media
It's really gay but worth it for WVW alone
Isn't WvW kinda shitty nowdays?
no because it's actually gettings updates and alliances soon tm
Definitely. If you are coming in fresh even the f2p game has hundreds of hours of content but I would strongly recommend getting at least the first 2 expansions so you aren't restricted. But as far as f2p trials go GW2 is pretty generous.
If you like exploration and leveling, that's what gw2 does best. There's a lot of endgame stuff to do but imo the best part of the game is going through and experiencing everything for the first time.
Give it 3-5 hours and if you don't like it by then it probably isn't for you. Fortunately it isn't one of those games that takes 100 hours to get good.
I've played probably 60h of this game and I keep deleting my character and rerolling another class. Help.
what do you want to do, what sort of classes do you normally play?
the classes can seem pretty loosely defined at first, and do not fit their tropes from other games
I like mages but I don't like elementalist because they're supposed to press everything and are hard to play. I only played the core elementalist at 80 though.
the only time elementalist feels like a mage is if you use staff and camp the shit out of fire
this is really only viable in pvp modes and more so wvw than structured pvp
mesmer and necromancer (especially scourge) are much more focused on being ranged casters
I like reaper and greatsword mesmer seems fun, but that's about it. None of them have the mage feel.
well, you're picking the non-mage playstyles within the classes themselves
scourge is all about casting area spells and control/support, they primarily use staff and scepter which are necromancer's caster weapons
mesmer with a staff is 100% a mage, even more so if you go with something like a mirage
personally, I prefer necromancer because their staff can actually do a lot of AOE damage
Same here. I get torn up on race as well as class. I think I'd probably enjoy the game more if you got more than like, 6 skills.
by this point theres so much content available that you'll be occupied for hundreds of hours
Anet also managed to keep old content mostly relevant so you'll never be "behind" during an expansion
warning: anet will nickle and dime the fuck out of you to unlock all the content
what's the gw2 endgame? farm meta events on new maps?
Slowly build out your collection of Legendaries via various means.
Thats what it is to me anyway.
sit in divinities reach and try to out fashion the other homosexuals there with you
I only idle in Rata Sum like all the other patricians
>He plays one of the goblin niggas
Taimi might be my daughterfu but all the other Asura can die.
you don't have to be asura to enter rata sum, retard-kun
Maybe not, but you're choosing to stand around literal goblin scum instead of going anywhere else. Asura are disgusting.

every time i come back, the same thing occurs, and now im in my late 20's. the other asuras i've talked to are the worst for this, besides the charr players of course; but they'd rather fuck their griffion mounts :/
>>take gold and never add him
i got hundreds of gold from the guy who would give me 5g just to take a few seconds out of my day so he could talk to me about jesus
I turned down my settings to where everyone is in default armor because of the new metas
haven't felt compelled to turn them up since
I got most of my inspiration from that one website anyway
Every single person is in the same korean angel slutwear. The only difference is whether its a tranny (Norn female) or homosexual (Char male)
>Every single person is in the same korean angel slutwear.
and this is why you
dude don't go back, pretty much anything is a better waste of your time, anything
dont go back
give out your gold to anyone and delete characters
>give out your gold to anyone and delete characters
i've done this twice
I sold one account and fully deleted second, but it still has all expansions. Maybe I should return... Idk, MMOs so dead, but I need something.
Yeah, leveling 6 character over again... I'll drain all that left of my soul.
In ESO I also deleted account, but it had more soul, so it's painful to play it again.
Final Fantasy... I do not ERP and I'm not a fag.
Maybe I should try Wow Classic. Wow Vanilla probably is shitstrom with all the expansions over years.
if i had to go back to playing an mmo, i would either try wow classic hardcore (never played wow) or runescape (never played rs seriously), fuck FF14, fuck GW2, they're different games with the same "endgame", just a bunch of homosexuals jacking off in town
>wow classic hardcore
I'll think about that. Never played official Wow either. Just some vanilla/BC/WOTLC long-long ago.
No. It wasn't worth playing 9 years ago, it's not worth playing now. Especially not after IBS.
>uploading files from your ip range has been blocked
As they say, when you're being shot at, you know you're on target.
IBS and EoD alone have so much tumblr cringe you could make a third wall image with them.
ah, /gw2g/'s resident autist who goes on hate tirades every time he gets farmed in wvw
love this little nigga
I literally don't touch wvw, cope harder trannynet simp.
have you tried speed runes?
Are you illiterate? What part of 'don't touch meme modes' do you not understand?
Zero class identity.
the game has had class roles for years now and they've always had good class identity
story is shit but who the fuck plays mmos for stories
This is objectively and inarguably a good thing.
The nu-mmo trinity was the second greatest sin in the history of multiplayer game design just behind matchmaking.
Without trinity every class just ends up playing the exact same. Trinity is important in an RPG to give a purpose to each role and enforce specific roles within group play.
Obviously, this is especially important in MMOs were group play is the entire point of the genre.
>unholy trinity is the only form of roles
holy shit you are a brainrotted nagger.
Do you have any examples?
Literally all MMOs before world of warcraft?
How fucking underaged are you?
EQ had a trinity.
EQ had control classes which were essential for content, but beyond that it had quite a few dedicated roles for raids
in EQ you needed a tank, healer, puller, battery, and dps at the least
It literally fucking didn't, let me guess your retard arse googled "everquest trinity" and thought you hit something because you got results?
The "trinity" in everquest referred to 3 specific classes that made for an exceptionally strong defensive group. It was not pulverising the role system down into 3 classes to allow for matchmaking.
You had tanks, pullers, buffers, debuffers, crowd control, damage, and nukers. Wow, that's more than 3!
DAOC was the same way, fucking trinity match making made everything gay and furry
That's a trinity my nagger.
Trinity does not mean there's exactly 3 classes. It means that each class falls within a triangle that roughly relates to the party's ability to take, deal and heal damage.
Tank is dedicated to tanking.
DPS is dedicated to DPSing
Healer is dedicated to healing.
Support sits in the middle, aiding one or more of these three elements.
this is what the globohomo education system does to a nagger
>trinity doesn't mean 3
so its literally not trinity
you dumb nagger retard. you fucking blackie baboon shitskin fuck. die.
Are you naggers seriously telling me you thought that trinity only refereed to 3 classes?
>are you seriously telling me 3=3?
yes nagger, yes we are
In everquest it literally did. Warrior Enchanter Cleric. It formed the baseline and core of every group. You could go otherwise, but that was the baseline from which everything grew.
Trinity refers to 3 roles. Healer, Tank, DPS. It's made for matchmaking and has no advantages over a more traditional, TTRPG inspired role system like Everquest or FF11 used.
go look up the definition to trinity my poor amerigolem
It's still a trinity, just a different one. Instead of heal, tank and dps, you've got dps, boondps and boonheal.
No, you have power, condi, boon, and support
not a trinity.
>boon, and support
boons are support, unless by support you heals
You can count the amount of instances where you expressly need condi dps on one hand. condi is not a separate role from pdps.
Doesn't factor in
Are you naggers seriously telling me you thought that trinity only refereed to 3 classes?
american education everyone
brainrot, i forgot healers and batteries because i'm literally seething with rage at this baiting nagger
Guild Wars 1 basically had only DPS and healers since there were only very limited ways to control aggro. Granted, some DPS were tankier than others, but it was mostly up to the mitigation healers to prevent you from getting one-tapped by high level mobs.
It's a perfectly bland and serviceable MMO
However, it has none of the charm and sheer soul of the first Guild Wars
The problem I have with this game is inventory management, the game throws so much shit at you, its totally the oppossite of FFXIV, in FFXIV the transmog/glamour system is trash and all my inventory is gear for each job, meanwhile, GW2 has an amazing transmog system but too many items
>GW2 has an amazing transmog system but too many items
but it's automatically saved to the transmog list when you bind it, you can just delete it afterwards
What I mean is, gear items? Amazing with the transmog system but then the game has too many currencies and trash, like I'm doing the halloween event and I have like 40 bags of that
It's to get you to buy more bag/bank slots
Just wait for character slots to go on sale and buy them with the gold/gem exchange as it's way more cost effective
Come home, white man.
I played it at several points
launch time, after a couple months/years, after few expacs, not too long ago, etc
the game is extremely awful and boring, the story is absolute cancer
if you want to waste your time in MMOs, this is a bad one
Way to out yourselves. Trinity is healer+support(alac/quick)+dps.
But, you there are healer / support / dps roles. They are mostly used in raids, strikes, WvW zergs and end game fractals. But i don't know about starting to play now. I found the new expansion to be better than EoS, but still quite mid at best
The new expansion shows the game has barely a budget anymore The new two maps are just floating islands with recycled assets, no new mounts, I really doubt the game will get more of these mini expansions
But for now, the game has good population to give it a try
I tried to come back to it in 2020 having play the year of its launch and couldn't remember shit. I couldn't even remember how to do the inventory to unfuck my full bags. Game had some cool ideas in its day though even if it didn't always stick the landing.
Post Asuras, homosexuals.
For me, it's spellbreaker. Simple and fun.
I finally made an asura, even used a total makeover kit, and I'm convinced that asurafags are truly mentally ill
Its fun enough. Plenty to do if you want to play for thousands of hours and get everything. A couple good content creators have made solid videos about how to build up an account.
I doubt the FtP experience is worth it though. At minimum I'd buy into the expansions, and get them on sale at that. Despite them adding mounts for all players the base game is aging and all the better content is in the expacs.
If you're willing to spend the dosh I'd also get the seasons stuff. Without them you won't understand any of the story, with just the expacs you literally lurch from the end of one campaign to having a gaggle of new characters who talk about stuff you haven't seen because you are expected to have played the seasons and its jarring as fuck. The season also have a lot of ways to get certain gear easier.
If you have all that stuff you have probably over 300 hours of just story stuff to do, so even if you play alone and never touch the mmo content you'll have enough.
Another question: is Wow Classic worth it?
I thought it was fun to potter around in.
Classes are pretty fun although the expansion subclasses are so superior to the base classes in both design and gameplay that it's not even funny, once you unlock an expansion class playing a base class again feels like sticking glass in your fingers.
The story was I would say above average at least mostly. The main story for the base game is 'wrath but without Blizzard being shit at writing', although they do this weird thing where there's an entirely separate dungeon-only story that's simultaneously completely separate but actually very important to the main story. Heart of Thorns and Path of Fire are both very good. I gave up during ice brood saga because it was clear they were out of ideas and trying to smear too little across to much content.
I have no idea about the fantasy korea expansion.
>The main story for the base game is 'wrath but without Blizzard being shit at writing
You're kidding right? The base game's story is absolute shit.
Absolute shit? It's just wrath with actual build-up and time to breathe.
In wrath Arthas wakes up, sends the scourge down south, but it's just a bait to draw you to Northrend, loses all over Northrend but it's just a bait to draw you to Icecrown, loses all over icecrown but it's just a bait to draw you to the throne and proceeds to lose at the throne due to literal deus ex machina.
At least in GW2 Zhaitan had a plan that actually involved trying to win and was actually winning in certain areas and the pact actually has a plan to kill him back. It's nowhere near as good as Hot of PoF but it's not 'bad' by mmo standards
>run into open world
>Mindlessly kill stuff for hours
>Never need to think about what I'm doing
>never need to interact with other players
Wtf is the point here?
just jack-off to the artwork instead
Guild Wars 1: 2 when?
Fear the Hamstorm
No dev will ever give us the buildcraft that gw1 had again, because they are too afraid of internet meanies complaining about balance to even try.
I have been chasing that high for a decade now and the only thing that comes close is card games, and they're shit for different reasons.
>retreating from GW1 to card games
Are you me?
I'd say no, just because the devs were some of the most incompetent pieces of shit on the planet.
Bugs existing for literal years, bug fixes that get reintroduced every fucking patch like they're checking out old versions of the fucking code from the source control repo, horrible tranny writing.
Also that Dulfy whore who they give patch notes to before they release anything, then she gave those notes to her guild and they completely naggered the entire market up, how the fuck that was even remotely acceptable blows my fucking brains out.
Oh also the fucking items showing up in game that are impossible to get, whatever fucking database admin must have been getting some good poon for that shit.
You avoid LGBT bullshit in FFXIV by not playing on Balmung. You avoid LGBT bullshit in GW2 by not playing at all.
ff14: troons with jobs for a sub
gw2: troons without jobs no sub
True. /vg/ guilds in GW2 are full of homosexuals.
there is no /vg/ guild because of the fiasco with a furry getting so butthurt no one wanted to ERP with their cat slut that they made a bot that spammed the threads until they died of ligma during 2020
gw2 is the only MMO other than WoW that is just full of normies
there's one on tarnished coast but they're all troons of course
gw2 is full of furry roleplayers and former tumblr girls
what the fuck
>>gw2 is full of normies
le barb face
there are furfag races in every MMO, they're never popular (except FFXIV for some reason)
like every MMO you're going to have autists of all kinds, but only WoW and GW2 in my experience have a population of normal people that outnumbers the autists
>they're never popular
It was the worst I've ever seen in GW2 don't even try and fucking bullshit me.
it's really not any worse than the percentage of players playing tauren and worgen and the new fox fag race
>gw2 is the only MMO other than WoW that is just full of normies
i wish this were true, more like gw2 is full of both trannies and frog posters but the trannies have the jannies and GMs on their side
i got a temp ban for naming a character "Bobs and Vagine" i got another one for renaming to "Turbo Slüt", then they gave me a random chink name and told me i would have to buy a rename makeover kit or whatever
Went into one of these guilds. Some fags talked about gay shit. I called them homosexuals. They didn't liked it so much, that they brought half of guild to bully me out. There was only one guy that said 'based'. And I thought /vg/ guilds are safe place...
you thought wrong, the trannies have the jannies and GMs on their side
Yeah, no more /vg/ guilds.
>Did the heckin' necromancer and bimbo mesmer kissed (before disappearing for entire expansions)
>SAVE ME naggerMAN
You people are pathetic.
Gw2 has a story?
>Cute lesbians dressed like sluts good
i have never had any contact with trannoids on gw2
just avoid "popular" guilds
the game was only ever worth playing for sPVP but even that has become irredeemably bad
Absolutely not, and it was in fact never worth playing at all.
I hooked up with a milf through gw but that was back in like 2015
This game populated atm, not looking for wow or xiv types of population but at least to do WVW stuff or is it dead jim?
WvW is always populated
Every single bracket has downtime
kill all MAG naggers
Kill all Treefags.
