i always play fully zoomed out for the same reason newbienice stated. if im a warrior i want to be able to see enemies from behind so i can run or regroup if needed while fighting someone else.
i always saw first person as something you would use to get screenshots (remove HUD too)
otherwise its fully zoomed out
No way I'd ever use it for anything other than looking at scenery and screenshots though. It's just not a viable option for combat.
i better be able to level up entirely from PvP without ever having to touch PvE. there's a couple MMO's that claimed you could do this easily (warhammer comes to mind) but honestly at some point you were forced to go to PvE because the PvP was so unbalanced that you couldn't possibly level from it.
i've only ever played MMOs for the PvP, and GW2 looks a trillion times better for PvP than GW1
ah right, yeh i think you do get exp from WvWvW not really sure though.
If I remember correctly they said you get xp from all PvP. So you could just stay in world PvP only and max out. I think they were talking about looting player bodies too (randomized loot I think, not your own personal equipment).
I love this.
XP and LOOT from PvP! YES.
So, rumors of a console version of this game floating around. You guys think its worth it if Sony and Microsoft allow consistent, free updates?
that's basically what i've been waiting for in MMOs, i can never really get into them because in many MMOs the only thing I can find fun is PvPing (especially the endgame PvP), not having to level up to max level to PvP first is going to be a big incentive for me to play this a lot more
Jizz everywhere, all over the screen.
I hope i dont have college work to do for tuesday >:(
Someone at Arenanet Tweeted a map showing the population of Queensdale. Extremely jealous of those people getting to play right now.
Sounds like a lot of fun in a high populated area, tried Tera the other week and spent 10 minutes running in circles just to tag the last mob for my quest. Then I had to kill a named mob, and about 20 players were camping his spawn point, even grouping up meant someone else came along and tagged him the second he spawned. Can't wait for bloody Guild Wars 2 where a higher population should hopefully actually make the game more fun.
Though there are jerks that just try and mess things up for everyone, I much prefer GW2's system.
I think Guild Wars 2 has just spoiled me with the idea of a more interesting quest system. I was hoping that the combat in Tera would be enough to keep me interested until GW2s release, but it just doesn't seem like my cup of tea anymore.
Having a bit of a hype overload with Guild Wars 2 now, after months of analysing every pixel on a single screenshot they release for my fix of content, we're now getting so close to a whole lot of new stuff.
Shit man, I can't wait to hang out around Shaemoor and help out those darn citizens. I really, really, really like the idea of escorting a caravan and doing tasks along the way, and the reward of a new special merchant or something.
I just thought a horrible thought. What if ArenaNet suddenly releases Guild Wars 2 as a free to play game. It'd ruin everything...
Apparently this is coming to consoles?
Really hoping that doesn't come through since the best thing about GW to me was the great community.
edit: actually I'll take this down, for security reasons.
Someone on Reddit made a list of all the twitter accounts of the Arenanet devs playing the beta if you're interested in feeling incredibly jealous of the odd hints they give.
God damn it sounds too awesome.@mkerstein posted:
