 I actually had more fun playing TERA then GW2. At least TERA has great combat and a large seamless world. To bad the quest were not better or I would still probaly be playing.

Can i ask what you do play?

 

I play Aion and Lineage 2.

Yeah, I have to say, I like GW but have more fun in Tera. I'm absolutely in love with my lancer. To that end, I am still playing Aion.

I just wish there was more of an end game (in either) like Lineage 2 where people would hold on to keeps. I hate this flipping of keeps. No pride in owership.

GW pvp seems more about "oh there is a keep over there, we can participate in taking it and then someone will take it back and we will repeat.

As opposed to, let's make alliances, take that keep and we will hold it for a few weeks, reap the benefits and then maintain those alliances and fight off the onslaught of those who want it.

Tha'ts probably a simplistic view of GW 2 pvp and I've only done a bit of it but that's my general impression. I just don't feel like participating in flipping for flipping's sake.

1 80 so far and a bunch of 20's, different races/classes. My 80 is a human thief. My second human is a mesmer. I notice that in my second playthrough of the human/centaur starting zones that I missed so much.

About 2hrs ago I went into this bandit cave knocking heads with the mobs in there. They had this swivle turret canon in there (got hectic for a sec). Once destroying it and killing off the veteran bandit (stronger mob ofcourse), I move to the back of this cave where there was a series of jail cells. I kind of noticed there was soemthing moving in one, but didn't really pay attention. I proceed to the last cell that had a gate I could interact with. After closing out the dialog of the interaction (which didn't really say anything beyond this does nothing),

I was immediatly surprised by two veteran giant cave trolls. Then the long battle starts. These suckers hit hard. While this fight was going on, the damn cave starts to respawn. The bandits target me, I stealth, the bandits target the trolls, the turret respawns and target me and the trolls. Pure Cray Z ness. After everything was said and done, mobs dead, I go back to the gate and interact with it again and it opens to a chest in the very back, couldn't really see it(the torchlight in cave only lit so much). Got a nice little upgrade to my shoulders and a new staff + a jewel to put in an open slot.

I have been seeing stuff like this all over this game. The above battle would have obviously gone smoother and alot faster had there been others with me, but I was just roaming.

Either you dig the world given to you or you don't. If you think about, in pretty much every MMO, you are going to be doing the same in pretty much every area. In every game, you are kind of doing the same thing throughout the entire thing. At least in this one there are dozens of ways to move through each zone in pve land and gain xp for that matter.

The why are you chuckling if you understand each to his own? I didn't last more than a month in TERA but in my opinion i will take Tera combat over GW2 any day.

And no i won't chuckle to make you feel as if your opinion is worthless.

it's not just you OP, i also cannot get past level 40. it was fun for the first 2 weeks but somehow this game loses a lot of steam really fast.

the biggest let down for me is the WvW. total zerg fest that meas absolutely nothing as it get reset every week. you are not fighting other factions as all enemies or friends look the same. There is almost nothing you can do alone so you pretty much have to follow the zerg. Repair is expencive and so are all the siege weappons. Unless you are a level 80 you are pretty much cannon fodder.

i dunno. it just all seems to pointless in GW2....hey at least it's free so i dont have to be conflicted about subbing or not. i doubt i'd play GW2 if it had a sub.

Teras combat is pretty damn good if you ask me. The only hiccup I had with it was the lack of mobility because of the rooting in place, I understand many liked it but I didn't. Still I would say that in core mechanics its better combat than any mmo Ive played because it has tons of potential. With that said, the overall combat experience is better in GW2 for me. From the AI and dificulty to the lack of trinity and magic the gathering type of skill selection.

What's all this WvWvW bashing, ofc its a frikkin zerg fest its a FRIKKIN WAR, how would it be any diifferent from USA and it's allied invaded Iraq?

what did you expect all three servers standing in a long row so you can fight 1v1?

Why don't you just play SPVP if you are looking for that leet 5v5 pvp fights.

 

 

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

I have wondered the same thing while playing WvWvW about people saying its a zergfest. Like you said, its war, I wouldn't imagine any other way of ti being, in game or in real life. How many times have you read of wars and taking "the hill"? They didn't do it by gently dropping butterflies on the enemy. /shrug

Just a thought maybe the game just isn't for you. Not every game appeals to everyone. I for one didn't like GW2 not that it's a bad game or anything. I just didn't enjoy playing it. You my friend maybe in the same boat.

And just block that guy above.  He's a blatant GW2 elitest.  Surprised he doesn't charge readers for the priveledge of his company.

Kind of a personal attack imho. I thought the idea was to discuss the topic, not the people. /shrug

You're right.  I edited my post in hindsight.

Originally posted by mikeoffy I bought the game about 2 weeks ago. I never played beta or Guild wars so I was totally new to this game.

When I moved to the new area I was disappointed I felt as if its the same thing all over again as the first zone. So I logged out and have just not had any ambition to log in. In fact I started looking something else to play.  What am I missing? Is this really how each zone is the same thing over and over? Maybe i just dont get it or something.  I almost...almost bought Mists of Panderia but just couldnt.   Please help...
 
its impossible to tell something about GW2 with 12 levels, its too short experience, sPvP, WxWxW, traits, elite skill utility skills, gear and all those fantastic maps, you need to play and enjoy around.
Some friends went to WoW (panda garbage) and they are enjoying, but give them 3 weeks more and they are coming back cause GW2 its different and best of all haves no fee.

I am not sure if this is a legit poster or a troll given the low post count but on the assumption that it's legit:

Each zone leads to several other zones. In each zone you will have  'hearts' (local quests) to do and most can be completed in more than way. Some ways are very benign  - go collect scraps for the war effort and some are very martial - go kill for revenge. Hearts can be done 1 time per character

In addition to the hearts there are are Dynamic Events (DEs). These trigger by some other event/course of action (frequently talking to an NPC with an orange globe looking thing over his/her head will start one that often leads to another and so on). DEs can be p repeated as often as they pop.

This is the process - New zone, new hearts. Do DE's. Once you hit the level 70 - 80 Orrian zones there are no more hearts. Just vast open wastelands of undead. DEs pop but no hard and fast heart/quests. (There are normal quests  zones that have hearts 60-65, 65-70, 70-80 etc). The storyline quests push you toward the Orrian sections.

The storyline is 'your' personal story quest which you can do or you can skill. Some of the storylines are pretty good, some are more bland.

Then you have sPvP and WvW PvP. As the OP was talking PvE, that is another story for another day.

What is there to troll with in this post? Hes just wondering what hes missing, why does everyone with a low post count have to be a troll? We all had to start somewhere.

I also came over to GW2 from Tera. I *much* prefer Tera's combat system (and its armor and weapons).  I played GW2 to level 60 (warrior) and finally had enough. I've gone back to the land of the Panda, and I'm much happier.  I just happen to be one of those who doesn't enjoy what GW2 has to offer.  Many others obviously do. To each their own.

I also came over to GW2 from Tera. I *much* prefer Tera's combat system (and its armor and weapons).  I played GW2 to level 60 (warrior) and finally had enough. I've gone back to the land of the Panda, and I'm much happier.  I just happen to be one of those who doesn't enjoy what GW2 has to offer.  Many others obviously do. To each their own. 

Count me in as pro-TERA-combat. People may have gone off about certain features of the combat but the proof was in the pudding. How it played against other players, how it played going against bosses, how it played AND looked while having many people on screen. You could still tell what the heck was going on. GW2...not so much. Clusterfuck, like I said in one of my very first feedback posts about GW2, back in April I think.

Not to mention that TERA's graphics looked crisp, clean and made for amazing screenshots. GW2 on the other hand looks dirty, muddy, hazy in-game and even worse in screenshots. Even after tweaking the settings. *sigh*

Anyways, I'm still playing GW2 because...err...I enjoy the exploration very much (easter eggs). I enjoy certain skills and effects (mesmer is so unique). I like talking to NPCs and having it trigger something. I enjoy the art direction very much. I enjoy the underwater content (I have a thing for diving...). I enjoy that there's no barrier to try the game later down the road in case I stopped playing. More MMOs should have no (re-) entry barrier.

Crap, I went off on a rant. Moving along.

I first thought when i logged into the game and started playing that this is everything I was ever looking for and its free. Then I hit level 11 or 12 and completed all my tasks in the first area. When I moved to the new area I was disappointed I felt as if its the same thing all over again as the first zone. So I logged out and have just not had any ambition to log in. In fact I started looking something else to play. 

What am I missing? Is this really how each zone is the same thing over and over? Maybe i just dont get it or something. 

I almost...almost bought Mists of Panderia but just couldnt.

 

Please help...

[mod edit]

You're not missing anything.  I clocked over 100 hours trying to figure out the same thing...even took advice on these forums and tried different classes...the game feels very "Eastern produced" to me.  The zones dont change much except for weather and mobs, all the harder mobs are called "Veteran (horse, centaur, spider)"...the atmosphere (my opinion only) feels very eastern as well...not as far as culturally, but just as in what I'd expect from an eastern made game.

Have you tried using other weapons and other skills?
