Aww terrible page king.
Sooo I'm having an issue here. I crashed while playing WvW, and now I can't log back in... I know what's causing it, I read an explanation a few pages back, but is there any way to SOLVE it?
The forums are down too so I guess that means something is going on their end.
Nevermind the forums seem to be up but really slow.
What's the solution to the "unable to complete operation" login error?
Oooh, the server's down. That actually makes me feel better.
Dammit I guess I'll just have to do something stupid like study for finals
So while the server is down, let's discuss what we have done with our time in the BWE so far. I made a Norn Guardian (can't stand the female voice) and did a few missions. Ran around trying to complete as many events as possible. Joined in on a massive event that involved attacking tat Svanir Shaman, which blew me away (also blew my armor away too, fucking repairs). Decided on being a Chef and Armorsmith for the time being (discovered Rune of Life, I felt like a champion). Realized stuff was going to be wiped so I decided to put a halt on my gal at 14 and started a Human Engineer, which is actually pretty fun. I think the premise of guns and potions is really something neat for me :v.
I'm loving this game. The WvW is amazing, PvE is amazing, and then there's the PvP.
Holy shit balls, I love it. They could sell a standalone game that consists just of the PvP. It's so much damn fun.
Well I was at work browsing the forums when I saw the post that the beta started early. Luckily I had just set up remote to my home computer and instantly started up the character creation. Too bad the connection was slow and completely unplayable, but atleast I created my character!
I created a Human Ranger (since I can't be Sylvari), and instantly dove into completing all the Events I could find in that area. Eventually ran out of things to do in that area and decided to group up with a few FP'ers to run around Charr territory and completed some of those event chains. Stayed up to 4am doing that and experimented with crafting a little bit.
Now i'm playing on a Norn Elementalist and absolutely loving it! I got stuck with the scepter for awhile there but once I got a staff it was instant pwnage. Just having the ability to switch between so many attunements and the different skills between each weapon and their attunements is outstanding.
I plan on playing each class (except the mesmer). I think my next one will be the Thief or Necromancer.
I've made a Charr Guardian, Human Engineer, and Human Elementalist.
The animations (especially in the close-up dialogue) are fucking amazing and so are the visuals. I also fought (and died) against that damned shaman and steamrolled some PvP and WvW matches.
Explored Divinity's Reach and took some nice screens.
I may as well share a little story seeing as I can't log in
I was a ranger running around with a necromancer killing etins and we came across a lvl 10 elite one and we were both 8, complete strangers but we suddenly started bouncing some sick skills off on each other. We were spreading out and I saw he got hit once so I rolled over to him and used a longbow knock-back skill and slowed him so he had some breathing space etc, it was so intense and enjoyable. When we won we just bowed and claimed our skill point :)
anyone know how long the servers are down for?
Also introduced this to a good few college mates who played TOR, they are now pre-ordering after watching some videos haha
I didn't see any in-game status/notification so i'm not sure.
although if it was like lastnights downtime/maintenance then it should only last 30 minutes.
I've played 3 PvP matches, it was fun
Although the full-blown experience you get from the WvW is just amazing. Nothing is better than to besiege a keep or tower and prevail!
I made a norn guardian, got into some of the world events, but then I got stuck somewhere (i couldn't move) so i went to the pvp zone, and got some pvp done. After that, i did some personal story to get gear, more events, then wvw from level 4-7. I got a greatsword and a staff, which will probably be what my build is based around. during wvw, i managed to help seige 3 towers, 1 keep, and 1 castle
I constantly used my burning/healing/aegis to give those buffs to allies, because in a massive group giving burning to EVERY member is a huge benefit over 1/5 of every hit i do.
After I logged out in wvw (which then resulted in me not being able to play that dude) i made a charr engineer, and I liked that a bit, so i went to the other classes I planned on playing, necro and thief. Necro was like the engineer, just quick check in and see if i like. (which i did)
the thief was really fun though, I went into wvw a bit earlier after doing the first personal story quests, there I found some nice armor and a sword drop. This was also when I discovered the glitch to go inside keeps/castles without knocking down the walls. after logging out (in wvw >:() i logged back into my guardian just to check if it was available, I got lucky 1st try and i moved him to hoelbrak asap. now i had planned to more in-depth check out the first guardian area, but the servers crashed and here we are now.
God damn Green Man Gaming is bad, first the entire day it can't complete the purchase, and then when it finally does it does it half-assed and uses none of my credit!
For both my characters I keep getting stuck at one part of the personal story line. Even though both are completely different they both seem to have a boss that I cannot solo no matter my level (sidekicking..) Then I sit there trying to find someone to help out and no one seems to care/notice.
Maybe someone from FP would like to help or needs help with the same part(s). One is the Human part where you have to fight that centaur commander and the other is the Norn release of the Minotaurs when you turn into one of them.
oh, and good troll tactic: If you're defending during a siege, hop down infront of the gate and plant a wall of reflection!
Everyone shooting shit at the gate will take it to their face, which ends up in hilarious kills and protecting your gate for 10 seconds.
cool, im level 10 so once we're together there should be no troubles
oh and RoF server?
Shit didn't think about server....I'm on Anvil NA :(
Well, I'm going to venture forth into the real world and grab some grub... I'll be checking here on my phone so someone please post when the beta is back up!
On my server browser it shows that all EU servers are high or full, and all US servers are low.. is that possible?
I'm lvl 8, can I help you guys with your personal story?
Anybody who hasn't started yet who would be willing to play with me? In the EU.
