    The shitty anime armor that we've seen recently has been pissing me off. I hope this game isn't too asianized on release.
    Anime armor? Are you talking about "less covering" armor on female characters? There's multiple types of armor in each armor class. They're not all skimpy.
    Example:

    The two on the right are female, as you can see there's armor that covers their whole bodies. That's why there's transmutation stones, if you don't like a certain armor but it's better than your current, you can transfer the stats of the good "ugly" armor onto your "nicer" looking armor. This is all from perspective/personal taste, however.

    I think I'm gonna buy like 2 or 3 extra character slots when it comes out. I just know that I'm gonna have a ton of characters.

    In GW1 the max character slots is 34, or 35 if you had a special pre-order bonus for nightfall.

    We don't know the amount in GW2 yet.

    He was asking about GW2, I think.

    Edited:
    Nope, he was talking about GW1. I think 4 characters in GW1, but 5 in GW2.

    Little less than I'm used to looking back at WoW but it'll do. And if not, I'll throw a little cash their way.

    In GW1, you started out with 4 character slots for your first campaign. The next two that you bought would include 2 more character slots each. So the maximum amount of character slots you can have without buying additional slots was 8. I'm pretty sure there will be some GW2 expansions or campaigns that will include character slots as well.

    The max was 9, with the nightfall pre-order I mentioned earlier.

    Without that, it was 8, yes.

    Fourth one is fine, third one is shitty. I can't transmute other peoples armor so I'll have to look at fat nerds who wear the sluttiest armor.

    A lot of people like the "dangerous and sexy" look, even some real girls do.

    As long as there's a good ratio of realistic/non-nude armor to the sexy stuff it should be fine.
    If I could I'd make a really fat female norn warrior and dress her in the most revealing outfits possible.

    People will complain about everything. It really is a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation for Anet here. If they make all revealing armor, people will complain that it is too slutty. If they make all covered realistic armor, people will complain that there is no good looking fantasy armor and it looks boring. If they have a good mix, there are people like you.

    Honestly, this is the best way. Having a mix of both. It is the closest way to make the most people happy.

    The armor doesn't bother me, because after seeing screenshots of TERA, armor comprised of nothing but three strips of tape would look purification.

    Kinda

    . posted:
    March and April we’ll aggressively ramp up the size of our beta test events so that many of you will have a chance to participate.
    And this

    . posted:
    We purposely didn’t use the term “Open Beta”, we mentioned Beta Events. To some people Open Beta means unlimited access to the game and everybody on the interwebs can play it. This is not what we will do.

    We will do Beta Weekend Events. Those of you who played Guild Wars might already be familiar with the concept. It means that many of you (like the blogpost says) will get a chance to participate in specific Events, but access won’t be unlimited – there will be some kind of selection criteria and the beta period will usually start on a Friday and end on the following Sunday.

    I hope this helps.

    I sold a ton of party/drunk/sweet points, farmed 10 ectos, bought 71 zkeys, then dished out JUST enough cash to purchase a tormented weapon. That was my boost from 35 to 40.

    What's the point in going over 30? Is it really worth hours of effort and millions of gold just to get a title in GW2? I never really got that e-peen stuff...

    I already had 43ish on my old account just from playing GW1, so I'm going for at least 40 on my new account in order to catch up to it again.

    Because, if you're playing Guild Wars, and you already have 30, you might as well work towards more.

    I need 1 more point for my goal of 45. I'm being too lazy. Anybody want to do The Deep?
