    No it doesnt wipe.

    You just max at 30.

    They wouldnt open the level 30 dungeon if they wiped every test.

    Try getting enough people to hit 30 in 3 days just to test it every weekend.
    Huh. I was informed that characters are wiped per beta, though that does raise a good point. I suppose they meant "wipe on release".

    The last dye I unlock is hot pink which is a unique dye.
    Decided to give it to my friend instead along with everything all my characters own so that he can attend the ending event with a bang on my behalf as I'll be in school by the time it starts.

    My guess is it is that it is free until the next BWE.
    I think that even though I can play more, I'm going to take a break, I still want all of the things in the full release to be exciting and fresh, I feel I've done an okay job reporting bugs; 6 or so. I really liked that NPC in Hoelbrak who said like 10+ pick-up lines. I think she was in the bear area of the city. Looking forward to the different races in the next beta.

    I reached 25 in the beta and I'm done now, too tired to continue. Did all of the Norn starting area and the second human area plus a bunch of WvWvW. I love this game.

    Not sure. They reset everything from CBT to Stress to BWE. Although since now the next one will also be a BWE they might keep our stuff! Possible but doubtful.
    well they kept my home server. i hope they reset those next time.

    is "Nystical.1205" in the facepunch guild? I still have the error of not being able to see it. I heard the fix is to kick the players that it is effecting (such as me) and then re-invite them.

    Think I'm done 'til next beta. I hope the game is better optimized for the next event, regardless, my FPS was still pretty good.

    I didn't like Engineer as much as I thought I would. Ranger on the other hand, I had a blast with, the range on the longbow is ridiculous.

    also, if you use the ability "next 5 attacks have bleed" and use the longbow's second ability, you can stack 5 bleeds in the timeframe of 2-3 seconds which stack in INTENSITY and last for a good 5-10 or something seconds. when you're scaled to 80, these to 2k damage a second, so *5 = 10k damage per second, and then the person is pretty much screwed

    Will the progress I make during a Guild Wars 2 Beta Event carry over when Guild Wars 2 launches?
    No. Everything will be wiped in preparation for launch.

    Straight from the FAQ.

    Also, do you feel they are killing PVP a bit by making everyone have the same items?

    I've been trying to do that in human lands, but one of the skill point guys doesn't respawn so you can't get one from him.

    really annoying seeing everything maxed except that one.

    They're absolutely not killing PvP. PvP isn't about gear differences, PvP is about each players' individual skills in a fight. PvP never SHOULD have been based off of gear differences, and the way GW2 is doing it honestly could not be any better

    Dude we were talking about during the beta, everyone knows it wipes on launch, we meant weekend to weekend.

    And yes, its pretty dumb that everyone has the same items in pvp, there is like no progression in this game due to that and all the scaling, ya you can argue pvp shouldnt be about gear but gear should still matter.

    If I played the game a lot and got great gear I want it to matter, I dont want some level 1 being on par with a level 80.

    Its honestly like, why even bother leveling or even putting in effort to get good gear if you can just join pvp and have the same gear and all traits and skills unlocked.

    I am going to be heading for bed soon, so might as well finish off the beta with my perspective.

    Necromancer was fun. Not loads of up front damage, but just annoyed multiple people with loads of aoe conditions.

    Engineer was okay. Damage was lackluster, and the flamethrower was hard to use due to the flame at times shooting off to the side due to how my toon handled it (sometimes would hold it in the "neutral position, resulting in the flame plume being 90 degrees away from where it should be). The turrets were meh.

    As a last ditch attempt to try and find something that I truly loved, I gave the warrior a shot. I had done the human starting area to death, so I tried the Charr.

    HO-LY SHIT WAS IT AS FUN AS HELL. I spent 5-9pm blasting everyone to bits in Kyloh battlefield with my rifle, and cutting them to bits with sword/shield. It is everything I hoped the engineer had, and more. The story was interesting and fresh, and the characters were lovably retarded at times (Steelbane was the classic "giving a dumbass a high ranking position in the army" scenario.     I ended up killing him off, since the Charr are about shunning weak links, and I wasn't in the mood to fight his band of rebels that he would gather if I spared him to try and overthrow me. Good night sweet prince, may angels sing thee to thy rest.    )

    WvW was ultra frustrating at times, as I had the unfortunate event of the entire enemy group charging at me when I was alone, but still fun with all the siege engines. (I ended up leaving anvil rock with all the lag, instead made home at scavengers causeway.)

    The only thing that bugs me is that people are expecting everything to be perfect. In a beta.

    "Are you allowed to do SPvP with a group, or were they too stupid to implement that?"



    Other than that, A++ Game would beta test again.

    Right that's the way I'm looking at it. I feel like everyone should be brought up to a level, but at higher levels your gear is better than that or something. Face it MMOs aren't necessarily skill, no matter how much "action" it has. Its about using your abilities in some specific orders, using the right gear, and some luck.

    No, I want all my time and effort spent gearing out my 80 that I spent a lot of time to level to matter.

    Not get scaled down or be equal to some level 1 who just queued for PvP.

    The whole scaling thing should be optional, it completely ruins leveling and gearing out in the long run.

    You can argue its all about exploration and doing the entire world or playing with friends, but doing the same types of quests and events that just have things named differently will get very, very stale after a few months.

    Ive already freed some random monsters from traps about 5 times already by level 10, killed the same centaurs for like 7 levels, and protected probably 5 different caravans which only outcome let me get like loafs of bread.

    I was only level 20, imagine the next 60 levels of doing that.
