    I'd like to see some underwater stuff in SPvP, just for the hell of it.
    I also felt a bit vulnerable at times as an engineer in SPvP, except the Elixir gun really helped.

    i didnt really try for dmg, i did some but it wasnt much, was a guardian in a pvp one time took us forever to kill him cus of all the heal abilitys.

    http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/...pf77797k7n7tij i used somthing similar to this


    the tome has a full heal to all nearby allies, and skill one is a non stop aoe heal that u can place on the floor

    Edited:

    i think my ideal 5v5 team would be dagger thief, 2x hammer/sword warrior fire ele support guardian
    http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/...77797k7n7tijir

    Mine was in line with that except I was only level 20~ with those except for the elite skill, which I couldn't take off. I used the sword and shield to double as chasing people to try to finish them of, and to get behind people do push them into friendlies with skill 5, then keep them there with staff skill 4.


    In WvW I just happened to do a fair amount of damage, but that's probably considering how no one had many traits(and less had higher than me).

    This setup for PvP for the warrior was fucking insane. If you timed everything right you could have people down to 1/3~ish of their health (with a crit or two) before they could even move with all the knock downs and immobilizes i had. Just running around with that I probably got around 9000 glory by the end of the weekend. Was really, really fun

    I've totally changed who I want to play as because of all the experimenting I did on the weekend. I'm going Human Warrior, probably sword/shield and rifle.

    before going on my thief i tried out some ele pvp. its very fast and you either die really quick or annihilate everyone
    I love it! I love Ele and I love the music!

    Edited:

    So what server will everyone be flooding for release? Seems like there was a lack of communication here and everyone flying anywhere was the preferred choice :v
    I agree. Next time (BWE2) we need to communicate better on which server we are going to choose. We need to get everyone on that steam group, we should all get on the voice chat.

    There are two servers we should pick, not five. Then we shouldn't switch in the middle of it and only notify some people that we did this.

    It's up to you. Maybe helpful for some people who aren't as experienced with those type of classes. Although I played a lot of the Elementalist and I must admit I never thought that it would be one of my favorite classes.

    Before the beta I was positive I would create a ranger as my main, but now I'm really thinking about changing that to Elementalist. I absolutely loved that class so much and the versatility of it.

    I made a list of the classes and races I wanted to make before the beta, but now it's changed.

    I really have no idea what is going on in this picture because I'm on the green team running alongside/with the red team on charge towards my own tower...


    I'll post a little bit more every day. Got some really interesting ones ahead i'm sure you'll enjoy :)

    When I played with a 2h hammer warrior in PVP the control was insane. I could easily ruin a fight for the other team if I timed everything right by knocking back like 5+ people at a time.

    Since GW2 takes out the trinity system. How do PVE bosses work?

    Does the boss target whoevers doing the most damage? and healing is just done by the individual and with some assistance from all(?) or just some of the classes.

    The good bosses either have large AoE attacks or spawns monsters that can attack themselves. With that, they should aim at large groups rather than individuals.

    But concerning smaller bosses, like the white rabbit event last night, I couldn't see shit so I can't tell you what it did.

    The one thing i see being a problem with bosses and such at the moment is that ranged so far seem to be much, much, much more favoured. In the final event this beta weekend it was insanely apparent that melee were completely useless against all of the moas and shit and i'm sort of afraid that's also going to be the case with some of the bigger boss fights in the game

    As a Guardian, I only felt effective against groups of enemies around my level. Other than that, I got destroyed.

    Ok, I did not do much in questing but I think it is safe enough to say this:

    It is like arenanet took all the good stuff about MMO's and improved on it and took all the "I wanted this to work so much why does it suck" stuff and fixed it and put it all into one nice little package and gave it to us.

    There is one thing I dont like and that is the exchanging gems for gold. Here is what I posted on the gw2 forums:
    I exchanged some gems for gold and it is fine if you ask me. Since if you do it too much you'll get less and less money. I got 2 3 silver for 50 gems at first but then it said I'll get 2 silver and 50 copper for 50 gems.

    You know, one huge issue that we didn't run into since we all trusted each other as a guild, is that it's IMPOSSIBLE to securely trade items. There's no item-for-item trading system at all.

    how often do you see item for item trading in the first place in mmos

    its almost always item for money, and the marketplace already accomplishes that

    i dont disagree though, not having a trading system was kind of awkward
