I liked the first one and am currently reading this.
If I could levy any criticism of your work so far I'd say it's the typographical errors and not always using setting/character-appropriate language. I don't know whether you carefully proof-read, but that might help with the former. For the latter, it just strikes me as odd when I read "salty," and perhaps also the frequency of the word "fuck," and occasionally how verbose someone is. Sometimes the sentence structure could be a bit tighter, but I can't think of any concrete examples right now.
Regardless, good job. the tsundere sex had me shooting

no its bad game design to annoy your players, going through the hot maps are easy now because you have zip through everything on mounts, at launch you had to walk and fight everything on a narrow path to get to where youre going and if you fuck up once you have to start over. i want nothing to do with the meta event, i just want to get to where i need to go and get out

I used to think that way, but then I figured out how the maps worked and now I think they're kinda neat
>>
>>320761593
In the interest of writing easier I tend to throw out the conventions of trying too hard to get the language just right, since I wrote the whole thing in a flurry four times my average writing speed and I usually gravitate towards more feeling-based dialogue like the hack I am. I've always had a problem with verbose characters and weird sentence structures, so those are things I have been continuously working on. Kinda hit a plateau like a year ago though. I mean as the story itself hits its beats and I'm not being too heinously inaccurate with it.
>>
>>320762928
I'm also like this but I still thing PoF is far better because it was a massive region with amazing atmosphere to explore and soak in, where you didn't have to fight for your life every five fucking steps and where every single resource node down to a fucking flower was patrolled by annoying-ass elite mobs who have bullshit teleport and evade spam and start respawning by the time you finally cleared the area or are near to killing the champion dickhead Hero Challenger with 10,000,000,000 health and a CC bar scaled for 5 people

Well, PoF still have the griffons who can go suck a fucking choya but my point is, PoF maps weren't a deliberate pain in the ass that want you to wait in the LFG for every little thing

HoT and PoF open world are two extremes. One has high mob density, and many of them are quite dangerous, and the other is the opposite. I hope for EoD they can meet somewhere in the middle, perhaps even with some contrast between dangerous and peaceful areas.

>>
>>320781168
Gear is horizontal so don't worry about it. If you got to level 80 and finished the personal story while playing for free, and you enjoyed the game, then buy the expansions and continue playing. If you didn't, then don't worry about it and move on. There's not a single MMO worth getting in to because one day you will have moved on with your life and all the time you spent playing will have been wasted nothingness.

GW2 used to have creativity behind it. Even when their time and tools were limited. Now we have recolored Weapon Skins sold as brand-new.
>>
>>320788028
I appreciate that little detail you mentioned too, but literally nobody is going to herald the PoF maps as the most "creative" in the game or anything. In fact, quite the opposite opinion is frequently, and correctly, shared. HoT maps have an immeasurable amount more detail and creativity packed into them than any of the PoF maps.

>>320772364
I don't know how they did it, but I still regularly visit the season 3 maps to farm nodes, and maybe even do the meta if it's going.

Also I had a long break from the game, but what's up with the season dailies? I noticed they only cycle through a singe map each day now.

By making it one map for each daily, the maps are now theoretically more active. To compensate the daily rewards were multiplied by like three or four, so people could actually get beneficial things from the map instead of hoping other players would show up.

possibly. The game is coming to Steam at some point which is pretty big for discoverability. It literally turned Destiny 2 from a really dead game on PC (GW2 isn't dead, but still) to one of the biggest shooters on PC, pretty much overnight. Its fair to say they should have done this ages ago.

It can't be optimized without remaking the entire game. GW2 runs solely on DX9 at 32bit. It's impossible to reduce the lag when more than twenty people are on the screen, no matter what graphics card you're using. Really. Can't be done.

You probably should have gone for tempest first, since tempest has plenty of sustain with it. If you're going power weaver you can get knight's trinkets to go with berserker or assassin weapons and armor (as long as you don't go over crit cap), or you can go condi and get settler's and throw on Balthazar runes and a smoldering sigil.

Regarding Dragonrise from the wiki:
>While in the unfrozen waters, Drakkar's body was exposed to the elements and its body began to break down, exposing its bone and decomposing fat.
>In the century since, Drakkar was slowly shifted by Jormag's power, twisting into a form the Ice Dragon desired. In 1325 AE, the Elder Dragon Zhaitan was slain by the Pact, and Jormag received a part of its powers over death. This power influenced Drakkar as well, further altering its form, with many of its bones and ribcage exposed, and growing ice spikes along its body.
That being said, its a hard sell for me. Compare the bone structures of the heads in your pic. Unless Drakkar's eyes are on the back of its head, I'm calling bullshit on Anet. They started themselves out with a dragon, but ended up wanting to go with a skeletal pliosaur to really play into the 'frozen water' concept (which, honestly, I like nu-drakkar's design more than the old one). Its still bullshit reasoning for the change, so its sad to see the possibilty of drastic redesigns for EoD as well

I only recently did the "kill Drakkar 10 times" achievement when hunting for points, and even then it was a chore because of long and boring the fight is. Mostly just afk'd at the entrance scaling it up for those who endorse this content. Still yet to see the meta fail, that's like the only thing that would've made it fun.

How do you fight Claw of Jormag in Drizzle wood?

I just did both Drizzlewood meta events and I still have no idea what a cache keeper is or whatever the other dailies are talking about.

>>320838652
You have to complete Southern Drizzlewood's meta to claim the bridge, and then complete Northern Drizzlewood's meta to push into the citadel. The Claw fight happens after successfully clearing the blood chamber, and then you just need to learn how to fucking dodge and hide behind terrain.

>>320839069
You can probably take breaks between or during the assaults on territories, then show up, tag a few npcs, final boss, loot the chest, to back to afk, same with the final assault. Then you loot chests for like 12 min, before taking a 5 min break, after which you tag the north meta first tribune and go afk again until the next one shows up etc.
That's coming from someone who only did the entire thing more than 1-2 times because the meta achievement which awards /playdead required it.

I soloed the guild hall claim as a condi weaver. That's multiple waves of elites and a bigass dude from the DS lane, all on a timer and designed to require multiple players (think it starts scaling up after 5). Hardly even had to optimize my otherwise kind of safe and maybe too tanky build.
For soloing bounties I usually bring tb rev instead tho.

Who thought making 3 waypoints for giant map is a good design?
>>
It's a long one.
I first met him like 4 years ago in WvW, he pretty much mains thief, and even back then he was already good enough that when you'd be fighting him you'd get this feeling that he's just toying with you. Unlike many other thieves he didn't really bm anyone and would take outnumbered fights in stride too. One day I found him pulling our dolyaks towards our keeps (think one of his vids on youtube actually shows it, he was doing it as penance for his sins or something).
I won't say how we got to chat exactly, but it was him being friendly despite us being 'enemies'. Turns out he's a rather nice and pma dude. Besides youtube, he also streams (not as much anymore I think). Up until about a year ago he was also mad about the music box that drops in Desert Highlands, and he'd do the meta every 2 hours to farm it via buried treasures, then toss the boxes into bank without opening them. Once he reached 10k treasures, he did a grand unboxing on stream. Think it was a matter of principle for him.
Anyway, felt nice running into him now and then. So eventually he'd become partnered with Anet, started hopping servers (it's free for them I think) looking for things to do I think.
Eventually he'd fallen in with the wrong crowd. Idk how. SA, a multi-server ganking sort of guild, mostly thieves of course. Decent to great players. Just really toxic. The last few streams I watched of this guy, he was ganking everyone he could find, throwing siege on them and corpsejumping. Can't tell why or whether it was just a one-time thing, the streams are in German, but it really left a bitter taste. Getting SW prequel vibes from this.
Remember the big twitch streamer who tried out gw2 a few months back? I'm 99% certain the guy in question used his partnership thing to move to a server matched against him, and then streamsniped&bm'd him, which was literally the final straw for the streamer. At least the rank, guild & gear (chak infusion included) are his. Not nice.
>>
>>320845367
>Speaking of condi weaver, is this still possible?
Looks very much doable, the burn numbers are quite high but I don't remember them being nerfed last year, could be that the gear used was more offensive. The one thing that stood out to me was the high might stacks count. Cba to double-check, but I've a feeling this predates the fire gm trait nerf (used to be "gain might on using a fire skill", they changed that by making it transfer your might to allies upon reaching 10 stacks), so these days the damage would be lower. Still soloable.

But I agree, some maps are too large even with mounts it takes ages to get from A to Zed.

I broke my armor 4 times already. I just don't understand how the fuck do I suppose to kill it. Constant blind make my skills useless. AOE damage is fucked up and I don't have time to dodge it, because it's just a spot on the ground that start to damage instantly without telegraphing me.

>I mean I'm not sure it's possible to kill veteran dust tornado hero point in desert highland

Ok bro here's the thing
A lot of your melee skills actually have higher range than indicated, meaning you can usually hit the enemy even though the skill indicates ref for out-of-range. The blind also isn't constant but applied in ticks, so if you have a rapid assault kind of attacks that hits more frequent than the blind you can still deal sufficient damage.

If you're talking about the awakened abominations putting up a damage reflect shield it's simply a matter of not attacking them for it's duration. If you mean the forged forerunners doing the hoverskate spin attack it's just a matter of standing off-center to it where the scythe skates don't fly.

Also, every single class has a ranged weapon. You should also be bringing CC skills so you can disable and burst enemies if they have annoying attacks.

Weaver. I can't change weapon in combat. Sword attacks are melee range, so I can't really kite tornado. Sword skills are take time to cast and are generally about one strong hit. Also I have only 11k hp and aoe that start damage instantly is one of the worst designs I ever seen.

this is me putting on core ele with random traits and abilities and literally pressing skills at random with only a vague intent to use a combo finisher, in full glass cannon raid gear

seriously I didn't even look at what I had equipped until the very end and I still beat it handily

If you put even a modicum of planning and forethought into your quipped skills and strategy you should be able to solo every PoF hero point like you're doing HPs in a starter zone.

If you're intent on being melee with a sword just use dagger offhand and swap between fire and earth main while using the molten skin skill on 3 that applies barrier and earth 2/4+5 blast finishers in the fire fields from fire 2 and 4 or whatever, it's a braindead combo rotation

>>
>>320875640
When I started playing I got 100% map completion for core through LWS3 without the use of a mount. Seeing someone with a mount didn't really bother me because I could still get to locations without the need for a mount. By the time I got to PoF and getting the raptor and bunny were mandatory for the story I just accepted them as natural game progression. Even in WvW someone with a warclaw didn't mean much to me because I was playing a support firebrand and was stacking swiftness for the whole party.

The only time I got legitimately jealous was doing Dragonfall's post-meta boss rush and struggling to keep up with players who had the skyscale. In fact, the only time I've put active effort into anything in this game is working to get the skyscale because of how butthurt that mount made me.

HoT final battle is WAY harder than Zhaitan. There's also a hard mode of it that's intended to be played with a full party.
PoF final battle is easier but you can make it a bit more challenging (actually, just longer) by purposefully dropping the OP item you receive just before.
Both battles are climatic as fuck, but HoT will be much more personal if you played the Personal Story and/or have a sylvari character.

Anyone got any tips for power rev pvp? (herald)
I can't get my rotation right, I run around with the glint buffs, swap to Shiro to leap in for some burst but after that I can't get the flow right where I don't just drop like a sack of shit or get caught without any energy or stuck in staff just back peddling.

I feel like I should be doing in/out hit and run style burst but it has no fucking disengage so I can't get any distance in a duel and they can't face roll like a Weaver can with spins/barrier/stability/CC chains etc

>>
>>320913384
and then when you swap back to shiro & sword is that when you do your big 4,5,2 burst with daggers proc on again? Thanks heaps
>>
>>320912449
For starters you really shouldn't be doing a rotation in PvP. Use different tactics as the situation calls for them.
Swapping legend right before entering combat is something you absolutely do not want to do under most circumstances, since legend swap in itself is a resource by repleshing your energy.
For defense cooldowns, try to alternate between dodges and weapon/legend evades/blocks. Using both dodges before Unrelenting Assault, Surge of the mists, or Warding Rift is a less efficient use of cooldowns compared to using a dodge and, say, Warding Rift, as both can cooldown at the same time this way.
Your legend swap is an attack in itself due to a trait, and because legend swap is instant cast, you can utilize it during other skill animations for more burst, or to have a greater chance of hitting someone after you've latched yourself onto them with Unrelenting assault, or are pushing them around with Surge.
Use impossible odds very sparingly, only when you're very certain that you can commit to bursting the enemy. It's very energy hungry. It's also nicely paired with Surge and Unrelenting.
Be up in people's faces with Warding Rift, as it can blind them at the end of the animation if they are nearby.
Don't hang onto your facets for long, most of their potency is in the active skill.
Deathstrike and Elemental Blast can easily be dodged, so they're often best used after Chaotic release, or while someone else is dishing out big CC.
Jade Winds is a very obvious animation and costs an insane amount of energy, its use cases are rare and mostly pertain to faking enemies out by canceling the skill yourself with weapon stowing, or using it to finish someone out of your range.
You're on a relatively glassy and bursty build, and it indeed isn't strong in disengage. It's very important for you to learn how to quickly identify whether the current situation is one in which you can commit to fighting. There's no shame in being a coward if it stops you from dying.
>>
>>320912449
Treat both of your legends as tools for combat, and think of sword as the fighting weapon, while staff is utility and kiting.

>>
>>320912449
My usual Shiro burst is precast the heal and start channeling true nature, enter with the teleport charge, pop true nature; then if I think I can secure a kill I'll follow up with sword skills (usually 3 for the evade) and impossible odds, or if it's too hot to blow all my energy on offense I'll autoattack and reserve energy for Shiro dodge or staff skills. The thing is you really have to go into Shiro stance with a plan for the next 10 seconds. If you try to wing it you'll quickly find yourself out of position and out of options.

oh shit really

>>320915752
Ahh see that's what my issue is too
For duels and spvp I keep thinking that I need to s start with Glint passives (swiftness/fury etc) and then swap into Shiro for the quickness burst

Is it better to open in Shiro, then be able to swap to Glint/Staff on demand kind of thing to adapt and leave the quickness burst for the 2nd shiro rotation, using the first one to for example build up energy for the stunbreak and so on?

You mention Warding rift a lot, do you camp in Staff quite a bit and just swap to Sword for some big burst? I tend to sit in Sword between Glint for the passives and then into Shiro for burst. Thanks heaps lad, I keep playing it like my Weaver, doesn't seem to work and while I can smash the practice NPCs anyone front loading pressure on me just seems to keep me on the back foot

I read a lot of guides that you don't want to blow all 50 energy straight away but I feel like the build has no disengages so the 5-10s it takes to build the energy up to say 80-100 you're pretty much dead so I don't get that advice at all. I think going in and out a lot works but fuck knows for duels, the only success I've had so far was a safe shiro quickness burst with unrelenting assault followed by immobolize 4 and legging it, going staff/glint and then setting up the next shiro burst but it's not working well I think locking myself out of Glint at the start by starting with the passives is the issue?
>>
>>320747080
Is action camera a noob trap? Its the most comfortable way to play for me so far because I hate having to hold right click to strafe around a target. I like in XIV how you can target an enemy and you automatically strafe around them, but to my understanding there's nothing like that in this game?
>>
>>320919895
How do you add in impossible odds on an opening energy wise though? Like I've been going in with the siphon daggers, and the #9 charge, and say unrelenting assault, if I pop impossible odds I pretty much get locked out of the other abilities straight away and if I try to chain the sword skills I just get melted. Was thinking, heal, charge, unrelenting opener, immediately swap to staff and get ready to mitigate and swap to glint and then lineup Shiro quickness burst with CC later in the fight?

>>320915752
Oh last question, by not stance swapping before combat, is that a way of building the energy up for the expensive shiro stun break/evade and then being able to switch to Glint and get some sword abilities pressure without going OOM? (or swapping to staff and glint for defense)

>How do you add in impossible odds on an opening energy wise though?
By knowing when your enemy is off balance and doesn't have ways to pressure you back. Shiro is a ganker, not a duelist; he excels at exploiting openings, not creating them. That's what Glint is for. >>320923374 is actually more or less what you want to do until you have an opening to bring out Shiro safely. I almost always open in Glint unless I'm using Shiro's gap closer to jump in and gank a duel.
Another option when you go into Shiro is to play conservatively with your energy until legend swap is nearly ready, then spend freely and switch back to Glint as soon as you run dry. Leaving true nature running is decent for this as a poor man's impossible odds. Also keep in mind what other anons mentioned, you usually want to be legend-swapping in combat, in the middle of other animations to get full benefit from the swap attack.
>>
>>320925972
>Shiro is a ganker, not a duelist; he excels at exploiting openings, not creating them. That's what Glint is for
Ah that makes sense, how do you not get steamrolled in Sword + Glint though is it more a positioning thing or are you comfortable to swap straight into staff if need be? Are the openings for Shiro burst just the Staff 5/Glint elite CCs and baiting dodges with Elemental blast? Cheers for the help lads
>>
>>320929180
Positioning and kiting is definitely a large part of it, as is using your defensive weapon skills. Don't hesitate to swap into staff if you're being heavily pressured, that's what it's there for, and a build as glassy as Shiro herald needs to be proactive about defense. The openings you mentioned are definitely good, but it's also a matter of knowing your enemy's build and paying attention to what they're using so you know when they're low on resources.

The Tengu were typically warriors, rangers, and mesmers with a little bit of necro and assassin splashed in. As warriors in GW1 they used swords, and with the Canthan aesthetic that has been tossed onto them all they'd probably be tanto katana weeb babies. All their typical professions aside from Necromancer can use sword so it's not too weird. Revenant probably wouldn't be so strange of a class for them since they're very much about their ancestors.

Ignore >>320945754 because he's fucking retarded. Spellbreaker is one of the best elites for PvP and WvW content, and its sustain with Tactics makes it great for soloing. Furthermore, if you invest in Berserker you can shine even more in Fractals and Raids.

Daredevil, on the other hand, only really has a place in raids. The massive Infiltrator's Arrow nerf in PvP and being so heavily restricted in what it can do in WvW (at best you can abuse evade frames in large parties, at worst you roam and backstab newbs without a warclaw) that thief is basically a dead class at the moment. Kind of like how mesmer was a dead class six months ago.

You can also tag up (>implying) and get +1 or +3 pips depending on whether the squad is visible or hidden. Need to have people in the squad though.

My theory is that they aim to replicate humans, so they do have genitalia but don't actually know how it works, and they've seen either so little or so much of it that it's horribly disfigured compared to a human's.

Same with romance. They behave like soap opera couples because their references are trash novels and broken human relationships.

>>320994153
According to this interview, sylvari have sex with each other for fun, but don't reproduce. He says that they choose their own gender, but later amended that statement in a gw2guru forum post after talking with Ree Soesbee.

>CDA: One of the lore questions that bother players the most is – do Sylvari have sex? Are they able to procreate on their own, or just keep sprouting out of the Pale Tree?

>Martin Kerstein: I'm not exactly a lore person, but as far as I understand – yes, Sylvari can have sex and they will have sex with whoever they like, they are fully capable of doing so. But they don't do it to create to new Sylvaris. They actually grow from the tree.

I presumed that the sylvari are so incredibly naive they can't differentiate between friendship and romance. They're basically all cherries who think that because someone was nice to them they're going to be together forever, which is why they're so hasty to forgive "evil" people and panic when left alone. It's also why the concept of the Soundless is so insane to a typical sylvari, when the Soundless are by and large independent, mature thinkers. Just like >>320995924 provided they view sex as something fun everyone does without commitment.

Gearing is pretty easy. Progression at endgame is horizontal, there's no gear treadmill like in WoW. As for warrior, it's useful in almost all endgame content, so don't worry about that.
>>

>>321044159
Probably. Wanting to teleport isn't indicative of mental issues, but you're probably pretty fucked up anyways.
>>
>>321043737
>Progression at endgame is horizontal

I see people say this, but I'm a little confused what 'horizontal progression' means. Obviously that means item level power stays the same, but you can get different traits or something that are more preferable to your build? Or is it based around set effects? How do they release new gear without increasing the power level cap while still making people want that gear?
>>
>>321045236
Horizontal progression means that once you get fully ascended gear with infusions, that's it. You can't get better gear. All you're doing now is running content to get components to create unique skins, or farm gold to buy gems to purchase cosmetics from the item shop, or going out of your way to get rare achievements so you can put a thing called Mastery Points into special, extremely niche abilities.

GW2 is a grindfest of a game, so if you don't like grinding or you don't have friends to goof off with, GW2 isn't for you.

>>321047030
RS grind is a lot more static. The edges are more defined. It's easier to just click semi-mindlessly while watching a tv show when playing RS. With GW2 grinds you have to look at locations on the wiki/remember what silly item you have to buy at that random vendor guy etc. and remember/write down endless lists of ingredients you have to gather.
The edges are less defined and the sense of progress doesn't tickle the autism brain in the same way RS does. The simplicity isn't there.
Still a fun game when it's fun, but the grinds irritate me more than RS grinds do. Despite the fact that RS is a glorified cookie clicker it's more relaxing and easier to grind in a lot of ways.
It also depends on what you like about GW2. I can 'grind' WvW all day and it doesn't feel like much of a grind because I enjoy it. The highs are higher but the lows are lower imo.

Dhuum is probably a badass, but you also forget that elder dragons are a tier above even the human gods in raw power. Balthazar didn't stand a chance against Kralkatorrik in a straight up fight, and he knew it. It's why he went after Vlast and later Aurene, to use their power. And I don't think Balthazar was any weaker than Grenth.

I use arc as a tool, not an e-peen measurement. I dont even look at it usually unless a fight seems slow or the group wipes. If we wipe, and someone is doing less than the alacrigade, you can be pretty sure you found a problem. Additionally, if youre actually doing more dps than me, I can trust you that you know your shit. I literally only complain if theres something worth complaining about. I wont even complain about slow/low dps as long as the group clears without hiccups. Like ya I will notice, and be a little annoyed, but Im not going to have a gamer moment about it. Also, arc mostly just tells me if im playing like shit or not, especially when playing classes i havent played in a while or even a new build or something.

That's interesting. I always imagined they were on closer levels, given that an all-out war between them would entirely decimate Tyria.
>>
>>321083603
Yeah, I don't think that's correct. I'm pretty sure gods and dragons are on even footing considering that the five gods banishing Abaddon had the side effect of turning an entire ocean into a desert.
The reason Balthazar was going after the magic of dragons was because he was stripped of his own by the other gods.

Look. If a Writer forgets Kormir was human once and hinges a plotpoint on that, and no-one catches it/speaks up. Then people have to fucking deal with it.

Fuck off retards. Charr destroyed two human sub-continets. They can go genocide themselves.
>>
>>321083914
This is true, and for that matter, remember the part where Balthazar tells you "your home is a trivial concern", referring to the entirety of Tyria.
Yes, he was a saturday morning cartoon villain twirling his moustache, but even if you account for ANet's writers being hacks, this was still coming from a being whose perspective on things is far beyond what we as players have so far been allowed to see.
>>
>>321084740
I never understood the absolute refusal of people to acknowledge the fact that every race, especially the charr, have committed atrocities. Homeland or not, it doesn't pardon the massacre of millions of people, nor the enslavement, torture and murder of human children.
The other thing that gets me is how people don't realize that the charr wouldn't have reclaimed shit if it weren't for Abbadon.
>>
>>321084740

And Kralkatorrik literally just flying over an area created the Brand. We haven't really had anything similar feats from the other elder dragons, except maybe Mordremoth instagibbing the entire pact fleet, but that doesn't mean they aren't capable of them. Primordus is so unstoppable that he drove all the underground races except the dwarves to the surface, including the entire asuran civilization. The Norn, a race so dangerous to fight that even the charr didn't mess with them had to flee from Jormag. The human gods are hardly small fry, but individually they are below the elder dragons in terms of power, not to mention that the dragons hard counter them by devouring magic. They do work as a group, of course, which means that they'd beat the dragons eventually.

I don't really get dragonhunter spec. I kinda see why it might be better than core for example, but when would I use the bow or why?

>>
>>321074694
>Balthazar didn't stand a chance against Kralkatorrik in a straight up fight
Balthazar had been depowered by the other 4 gods plus Kormir, that's why he first absorbed the power of the bloodstone and then tried to absorb Primordus and Jormag. The commander foiled him, so he had to go for Kralkatorrik who wasn't half-asleep like the other two. Of course in his state he was nowhere near the power of an elder dragon.
>>321077885

it's been a while since i took my guardian for a spin, but I think longbow is better for power than scepter is.
>>
>>321089298
As a general rule, I consider anything that the story doesn't beat your head over and over with as flavour text with no plot relevance.
See also the order of Shadows allegedly siding with the Sunspears and Joko at different times to profit off their feud and never being called out on it, or the order being at war with the Whispers never being mentioned again.
I was expecting shadow agent Kito to turn on us at any moment and instead he was the "why can't we all be friends?" asshat.
As far as I'm concerned, Asgeir's tale is 100% accurate until Jormag ximself comes out and says it's made up.
>>321092319
Make that 2018 and counting
>>
>>321133820
Longbow is used for tagging mobs since it has much greater range. Put a Sigil of Fire on it and you'll get bags galore. Scepter is better if you're going to be soloing tougher mobs like in HoT, especially since the focus has defensive abilities on it.

As for the actual specialization, what makes it work is that it allows for higher damage spikes than core, and can also be specced so you have better defenses against ranged enemies. It also has better defiance bar breaking thanks to its traps, or you could choose to have higher combat mobility with the +25% movement speed trait.

I've played Guild Wars 1 for about 13 years and then moved over to Guild Wars 2. Anet can shill away.

I really just want a legendary weapon but cannot afford it. I don't earn enough in game and I make a lot of armour sets for builds which eats away at my income in game.

Complete noob here, haven't played a mmorpg in 10 years, just started this as a furrycat necro.
Anything I should absolutely keep in mind in the very early game beside what's written in generic guides? Should I already focus on a certain necro build at this time or I just use whatever and level up to a certain point where I can hunt good equipment?
I'll also try the elementalist in the other slot.
Base game without expansions btw. I don't think I'll do pvp stuff for now.
>>
>>321183672
asc trinkets or t6 crafting bags worth more than the ascended mats in the other chest.
leg crafting material chest gives 7 clovers and 8 obsidian, but you can get laurels in wvw reward tracks and 7 is fuck all. obsidian is also pretty plentiful.
chest of experience is just abject trash

>>321183817
just use the gear you drop or buy green stuff from the Trading Post (auction house) when you feel too underpowered. do not bother with yellows.
Build does not matter for levelling since you can unlock everything and swap freely between stuff.

You can manage your inventory by salvaging, pressing the "deposit materials" button and selling stuff on the trading post (you might have some limitations due to being f2p).

If you run out of stuff to do in your beginner zones, keep in mind that you have Waypoints unlocked for other race's starting zones.

>>321183817
remap keybinds to something more easily reached that works for you

Downed state is retarded.
Underwater combat is retarded.
Game would benefit greatly from not having balancing around these two things.
>>
>>321183817
For now just read what each thing does and use your own brain to see what works. For lvl 80 builds google Metabattle.
When you get to level 80 you're going to want the expansions especially as a necro. Reaper and Scourge absolutely shit on core necro.
Basically just follow the story-line to level up and wander around training while leveling up. Early game content is pretty much dead so you're going to be on your own for a lot of it, but stick with it because it's a damn fun game. Best combat system I've ever used.
Dungeons are also pretty good exp and you can just tag along with level 80's who are running the dungeons to get power-leveled. Dungeons are pretty dead these days, too, though. When you find a group I rec doing them because it's good exp and the currency you get can get you some exotic gear when you get to level 80.

nice projection there mate, but everyone can master GW2's combat by going through the CD order and occasionally dodging

>>321192114
Also wondering this
I really dislike the aspect of the game that everything has to be in massive groups that tank my FPS and there have to be scheduled events and all that crap
I just want to go somewhere and kill a bunch of crap in my own way, and maybe on my own and hope for some good loot
More of a classic MMO style gold-farm

>kill a bunch of crap in my own way

>>
>>321194186
Why do you sometimes like to sit alone in your own home rather than go out and socialize?
What I'm talking about is a classic MMO style money maker. Like a GW1 or Runescape style thing.
That's the main thing that's lacking for me in this game. They try to re-invent the wheel to much instead of sticking to the classics then building around it.
It's a great game. The fundamentals are all there, but it's lacking in certain areas and everything feels too much like a rigid amusement park ride. Can't leave the tracks. The events are all scheduled.

That's exactly what I don't want. Scheduled events in a massive train of people all riding the same ride at the same time.
>>
>>321195348
Then do dungeons, Strikes, and Fractals.
>>
>>321195753
he said he is too autistic to play with other players
>>
>>321195154
Because the actual super rares are at least 40 times as rare.
>>
>>321195753
Fractals is the closest to what I want, but once again, group content with a rigid, structured train track.
A game like runescape for example: you want to go kill this boss? You want to do it by yourself? You want to do it whenever you want and however you want? Go nuts.
You want to just sit there farming trash mobs for hours on end? Have at it.
Some form of solo (optional) content where you are in the driver's seat that's actually a viable alternative in terms of Gold per hour. That's what's lacking in GW2.
Like Balthazaar at the end of PoF. A boss like that, that you can spawn in your own instance and kill however many times you like, whenever you like, that has a chance of dropping some rare goodies and with a stable and viable GPH.
Or like in GW1, how open world was your own instance. If you want to go out and farm trash mobs, then it's in your control. If you want to invite people, it's in your control. GW2 has too much rigid control in the hands of ANET rather than in the hands of the player. You are at the mercy of whatever event they have scheduled.
>>
>>321196193
node farming is solo and is a good gold income
>>
>>321196528
That's a decent idea. It's painfully dull, though.
>>
>>321195886
It's partly that and partly the irritating design of most events. The way they're structured and the time gates.
So, for an example of something in GW2 that works really well is the halloween maze.
No dicking around, no frills, no convoluted bullshit, just go in, and farm. That's it. That's all you need. It can be a little annoying trying to desperately tag a mob before it gets raped by the zerg, but it's a lot more fun than Drizzlewood etc. because it's dead simple. No bullshit. No nonsense. Just farm.
>>
>>321196823
Then kill yourself because you are panning for gold in the arctic

How difficult are strikes really? As a power chrono as long as I keep quickness up will I be okay for PUGs? I've run a few with my guild but I didn't have arcdps at the time and I dunno if I was hot garbage or not because if I was they never would have told me.
>>
>>321200049
They're very easy, but PuG players are also unfathomably shit, thus the ideal choice is to take full control of the situation by playing healscourge so people can facetank mechanics and get downed constantly without fucking the fight.
>>
Should I just set all my alts as node farmers until I decide what to do with them?
>>
>>321200049
Really easy, but like >>321200342
said PuG players are hot fucking garbage. I'm not even that critical and don't expect absolute perfection, but god damn, I have no idea how people can get to endgame and only pull of 2k dps with a dps build.
>>
>>321200049
Each strike has MECHANICS. If your group knows them then you'll be fine.

EASY
>Kodans: Kills both at the same time and make sure you have enough CC offhand.
>Shiverpeak: Pure DPS race with a HP check near the end.
>Fraenir: Healcheck and whether you've got eyes to avoid the orange circles under your feet.
HARD
>Boneskinner: One person has to be a torchbitch and keep the fires lit. Also the orange circles leave lasting AOEs so bunch up when you can and dodge out. Kill the adds to stop the Boneskinner getting his tendies. Don't forget your DPS.
>Whisper: Mechanics all over the place. Don't play melee. Bring 2 healers. Any more and you risk losing the dps race at the end.
EXTENDED
>CW: Adds and Vets and Champs as far as the eye can see. Co-ord the airstrikes you get so you can clear groups without getting swamped. And make sure the designated AA can actually git the choppers. Last Boss requires NOT bunching up and making sure the healer can get everyone in one go. Also avoid the telegraphs.
>Forging Steel: Just watch a guide for this untagged Raid.

Thanks, this helps a lot. It also looks like I did the three easy ones with my guild which explains a lot.

Second question: how feasible is it to get ascended armor/weapons from strikes alone? I've always despised crafting in MMOs, and I'm aware how reliant GW2 is on it, I just really wish I could get the rest of my ascended shit without crafting.

Only ways of getting asc amor without any crafting are the raids and pvp/wvw (would take a VERY long time). You can get some weapons easily like Caladbolg variants and the specialization collections weapons but it might not work for you. My advice is go the crafting route, it's the most straightforward and there are other uses like legendary weapons and most new weapon skins
