    My IGN is "Glent Sharpstring", but I don't really have anything I can offer you in return, I think.
    Oh I don't mind.

    So would anyone be interested in doing a run through of the campaigns at some point? I still need to Master 4 missions in Factions, and actually finish the rest.

    I could tag along NF or EOTN with one of my alts, they need heroes.

    Got ele, warrior, ranger, ritualist and monk roughly at same point (lvl 20 ascended with couple heroes).

    What quantities of gems were sold in the gem shop? I know 1800 was around $25 or something, and I was wondering about how much the other amounts were in cash.

    Ahh shit, wrong thread, and I cant edit posts on my phone.

    It's still a very fun and enjoyable game, although a lot of areas are forsaken.
    You can still find a party for nearly every mission but you probably need to be in a PvE guild to achieve that.

    Worth it if you plan to play GW2, the game will be pretty much dead after that, with people only playing GW1 to get the rewards for GW2

    Edited:

    Tried some of the end game PvE content. Bloody hard. What kind of setup is common? I run with 2 mesmers, 1 minion master/healer, 1 SS necro, 2 spirit spammers, 1 smite monk and a prot rit. Managed to do some of the Nightfall stuff, but wiped on the Foundry.

    Hopefully you have some friends you can play with. If you do, and you'll be dedicated to playing it, then absolutely. It's a fun game with a pretty good story (in Prophecies, anyway) that unfortunately has nearly died in the PvE (player v. environment) area, but the PvP area is still fairly active. Expect a few towns to be ghost towns when you play story mode if you're outside the main cities.

    Hmmm, not really. Not literally by any stretch of the imagination.

    Sure, 2 mesmers could mean anything, I'll give you that.
    But "minion master/healer" =/= Aotl-prot necro. Sure, it is close, but not same thing (heal=/=prot).
    There is no SS in the build i posted. Pain of disenchantment is much more useful with heroes, since hero ai tends to use SS in awkward situations. Also the one in build I posted focuses on healing, rather than curses at all. SS just is not viable, since everyone dies so fast, there is no real tank and ai scatters in hm.
    Spirit spammers are all the same, that's true. But almost everyone runs at least one rit spamming spirits.
    Smiter is same too, most likely.
    I can't see the point with having prot ritualist in that build, but its up to you and all.


    I don't know which role you are filling, but generally it's better to give heroes the "hard" job of interrupting and choosing targets for panic and everything. Same goes for heals and minion master, since they can target minions with ease.

    I don't know what role you are filling in that, but I've been able to pretty much faceroll my way through hard mode, FoW and dungeons with that build. I've been playing assassin, mostly spamming jagged>fox>death if i feel like it, otherwise just walking the heroes around. If you intend to go "more" end game than that (harder elite missions like uw), then you are most likely going to need more specialized build and/or consumables.


    Yeah, maybe half of the build is same. But if it was literally the same then 3 year old could guide heroes through any campaign, as long as one doesn't pull everything at once.

    Every campaign takes place in it's own world/continent/map, but you can travel between them freely as long as you have the necessary game. So if you have both prophecy and factions, and you're a factions character, you can freely travel to Lion's Arch in Prophecies if you reach Kaineng City, and travel back to Kaineng from LA. You have to do a quest or two first, I think, but that's it.

    This is what people think the map looks like when all the continents are put together



    So they are all part of the same world but arent acessable without putchase.

    Yes, HM was a breeze mostly. I go prot rit for EZ mode, with literally permanent Shelter (allies can't take more than 10% of their health in a single attack). It has almost worked for the end game Nightfall stuff, however I keep pulling too many mobs so I wipe. Wasn't sure about the SS necro, I wanted more damage due to our survivability being pretty hefty.

    And yes, I was asking for builds/tactics/whatever for the very end game stuff, like UW.

    Is there any way to tame a new animal and then get my old one back, or keep it? I've had my Black Widow for so long now, but I want to get the other animals that you can add to the Hall of Monuments, and then get my Black Widow back, but I don't think I can find a group for the Underworld these days since there doesn't seem to be as many people around.

    I think you can get new animal like the one you used to have from "Zaishen Menagerie", you unlock pets you have tamed before and so on.

    You should be able to get new Widow from there after getting what ever else you are going to get.

    After adding the pet, you can get a new one again, I think you can get up to lvl 20 with a specific evolution, but it costs gold. Not sure if you're limited to the number that you bring in, or if you can get as many as you want. Might be cool having 8 Spiders on your side.

    The leveling curve may as well not exist for the most part. Level 20 is around 145k experience, and can be reached in only a few hours without trying to power level. I have one of every profession, and the lowest experience on any of them is probably my warrior with something like 1.3 million. I have numerous characters over 10 and 15 million, and one around 85.

    Ultimately the game shares many elements with magic the gathering in terms of build composition. Crafting an individual build, or team build bears many similarities to crafting a deck in magic. That, not leveling, is what determines your real effectiveness.

    Yeah, leveling to max level in factions takes less than 10hours, even without consumables.

    Level does not mean anything.

    With any campaign + EotN you can do it within 1 to 2 hour(s).

    I doubt you can rush nightfall to the portal in that time, but maybe, I don't know about that. I've only one nightfall character, and I leveled him pretty slowly.
    Same might go for prophecies, unless you get runner to get to kryta. Not sure about that, I've leveled all my non-factions characters the "scenic route".

    I've usually made factions character and skipped all but the skill point missions and the rushed for closer to stars. 5 out of 8 characters I have are factions.

    I have one Prophecies charactar, one Pre-Searing, five Factions characters and four Nightfall characters, it is quite easy to get to level 10 in Nightfall within an hour.

    You can use the old one.

    There is little continuity from campaign to another, I'd advise doing nf or eotn after proph if you have it, for sake of heroes.

    No heroes.

    Otherwise I'd recommend Factions, it's really good campaign.

    Get a decent hero setup and you will breeze through Hard mode for all campaigns. Which less rage inducing and more fun as you will not only be making a build for your character, but a build for all of your heroes. Unless you don't like that.
