Actually I prefer challenging content, and challenging play. I would recommend going to reread my OP.

I also said I have enjoyed the game however it's also apparent that I'm not the only one that feels this way over the dungeon. I also stated that Now that I have DEFEATED the dungeon, I will give it another shot. However as of my first opinion it left me with a sour taste and was overall not fun. In my 14 to 15 years of MMO gaming It have to say it was the worst PVE combat I have experienced.  For all the people who claim that EVERYONE in a group kiting the mobs equal tactics, I have to say I disagree. That is pretty much what is happening in every video I have watched.

On another note. There are several posts in this thread stating that if your running in crap blue or green gear these runs are very hard if not close to impossible. Well for me green gear is still good with blue being my common gear. I don't have 2 or 3 level 80s my main is level 35 as of last night.

By the way in real combat people have roles. Good football teams are made by players who know how to play their position. Dedicated roles and having people who know how to play them correctly is what makes for good teamwork. So all the people who argue otherwise are ignorant.

Call me boring and old fashioned, but I prefer dungeon combat to make you feel like you achieved something when everyone performs their role perfectly, coordinating skills and abilities. Definitely more rewarding than just corpsezerging a boss into oblivion. And trinity dungeons are actually much more challenging than GW2 ones up to this date. I successfully finished every GW2 dungeon (including explorable modes) with PuGs during my leveling and the little extra I played once I hit 80. And that's the end of the bar for GW2's difficulty progression. That's unthinkable in most trinity mmo's and it's light years away from the level of challenge offered in endgame dungeons in some of those trinity games. And let's not even talk about 10/12/15/20/24/25 man raids.

 

I don't know, the super anticipated epic end fight of GW2 being about spamming your 2 button while the dragon clings dumbly onto a rock pretty much sums it up.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

You can say this and it is true (apart from the ignorant part), but you can allso say that GW2 works, in football (soccer if you are american) there are defenders, midfield and forwards each with a role.

Defenders defend, midfield support and forwards score goals, in a trinity that would be all they did but in GW2 style play defenders can attack and score and forwards can defend just as they do in sport,  I like football because it is dynamic and any player can score or defend, even the goal keeper can go forward and score in certain situations.

It is all about learning to play more fluidly, image a defender with an open goal and he cannot shoot because he is not a foward, it would make for a boring game.

There is still lots of teamwork and  dedicated roles but they ovelap each other much better.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

I found the catacombs difficult but enjoyable (except for the lovers boss, which apparently everyone hates).

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

This can be done in trinity style games as well. The problem is with GW2 is that everyone is really designed to be a scorer, instead of having those rare saving moments like a cleric in EQ being the last man standing in a battle and delivering the final killing blow on a mobthat wiped his group all save him. Making it seem much more epic. GW2 is a kite fest. Like  i said I plan To try ACex  tonight. Will see how it goes.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

11/06/12 7:06:17 AM#87

I actually wish the dungeons were more challenging like Arah. AC, TA and CoF are a joke tbh wish there was a hard mode for them.

TBH OP if you haven't ran the dungeon with a good team or without wiping then you haven't experienced real team work on it. I did this dungeon with 3 in their level 30s and 1 80 and we did quite well thank you.

Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

You're playing your Elementalist all wrong!

 

You think it's all about everyone being a scorer, NO! It's how versital you can be, it's what you can bring to the group that benefits them as much as it does to you.

 

I'm not going to give you any helpful tips.....FIGURE IT OUT or QUIT! Play another game that will cater to your easymode game style.

A tutorial type dungeon would solve many ills.  If it's just a matter of not being used to this style of dungeon, perhaps an easier learning curve is in order.  What about a lower level dungeon - say, a level 10 or 20 dungeon with minimal rewards but easier difficulty.  Make it interesting and fun while at the same time easing players into the new style of dungeons.

Once again someone who didn't read my posts. I Went  into the dungeon attempting to play more of a support role. Throwing heals and mxing it up with knockbacks and a bit of dps. As you don't know anything about how I play my character I would suggest keeping your personal attacks and insults to yourself as it just makes you look ignorant.

Its not about scorer or not, as elementalist you have to be everything and nothing without any specialisation as you have to rotate all stances constantly to be effective, wich is not bad considering how shallow the skill system is for other classes.

But thats not the point, problem is in dungeons you are forced to have defensive or support build/gear or you get 1-2 shoted by stray monsters or random agro and you cant do shit about it if you run out of cc. And even as dps you do half the dmg Warrior do even tank like speced.

I dont like chaos and id rather have a game where i can depend on my  skills and build. In GW2 if few mobs decide to agro you as ele, even if you in the back and esp. if they ranged you are as good as dead.

1-2s CC dont mean shit. 10-20s one i can understand. But all skills are plainly optimised for pvp not pve. Thats why its all messed up in dungeons.

 

PS: GW1 had far superior system in my opinion (apart from the whole combo system in gw2). So far Ele is the most complicated class to play in gw2, and its still probably one of the easiest ones to master in mmo games w/o much of a room for improvisation and customisation. Anyone that loved gw1 skill system freedom knows what i mean.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

I can't for this instant I win button!

Actually I prefer challenging content, and challenging play. I would recommend going to reread my OP.

I also said I have enjoyed the game however it's also apparent that I'm not the only one that feels this way over the dungeon. I also stated that Now that I have DEFEATED the dungeon, I will give it another shot. However as of my first opinion it left me with a sour taste and was overall not fun. In my 14 to 15 years of MMO gaming It have to say it was the worst PVE combat I have experienced.  For all the people who claim that EVERYONE in a group kiting the mobs equal tactics, I have to say I disagree. That is pretty much what is happening in every video I have watched.

On another note. There are several posts in this thread stating that if your running in crap blue or green gear these runs are very hard if not close to impossible. Well for me green gear is still good with blue being my common gear. I don't have 2 or 3 level 80s my main is level 35 as of last night.

By the way in real combat people have roles. Good football teams are made by players who know how to play their position. Dedicated roles and having people who know how to play them correctly is what makes for good teamwork. So all the people who argue otherwise are ignorant.

You can say this and it is true (apart from the ignorant part), but you can allso say that GW2 works, in football (soccer if you are american) there are defenders, midfield and forwards each with a role.

Defenders defend, midfield support and forwards score goals, in a trinity that would be all they did but in GW2 style play defenders can attack and score and forwards can defend just as they do in sport,  I like football because it is dynamic and any player can score or defend, even the goal keeper can go forward and score in certain situations.

It is all about learning to play more fluidly, image a defender with an open goal and he cannot shoot because he is not a foward, it would make for a boring game.

There is still lots of teamwork and  dedicated roles but they ovelap each other much better.

This can be done in trinity style games as well. The problem is with GW2 is that everyone is really designed to be a scorer, instead of having those rare saving moments like a cleric in EQ being the last man standing in a battle and delivering the final killing blow on a mobthat wiped his group all save him. Making it seem much more epic. GW2 is a kite fest. Like  i said I plan To try ACex  tonight. Will see how it goes.

You're playing your Elementalist all wrong!

 

You think it's all about everyone being a scorer, NO! It's how versital you can be, it's what you can bring to the group that benefits them as much as it does to you.

You are NOT forced to run a support/defensive build this is a straight out lie. I run full dps gear in pretty much all dungeons and usually I'm the one that dies the less, I play a necro so no my defensive capabalities are not as great as a guardian, however I like to think I excel at my class and I know dungeons very well now.

For example I was running CoE last night path 2 with a PUG group, full dps gear however I was the last man standing against Subject Alpha,  while the mesmer/guardian kept running from waypoint after dying over and over.

Your utilities and traits set your build and skills as do your weapons, you don't have to play the same way you can switch them out, adapt to the fight or a role if needed. Other traits might help you on a specific fight, take a good look at them and then switch the optional ones for ones that will help your fight.

Not sure what games that takes skill you are talking about, do you mean like stand in one place and go through a DPS rotation? Stand in one place and heal? or Stand in one place and just bash the boss using whatever taunt skill you don't have on cd. That's boring IMO.

Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

Uhh, you know necro focuses on survival + dots  ? Even in dps gear. We used Necros as tanks if we didint had any meles in a group.

Elementals are FAR more squishy than necro. As a matter of fact they are the class with least hp and least defenses in gw2.

They have lower hp yes because they excel at their utilities. When you say you aggro mobs you are straight out dead I wonder what you are doing with your skills, just the staff has the water heals, chill to slow enemies down, cripple enemies with the rock barrier, an aoe stun field, aoe running skill, you have armor of earth traits and arcane armor trait, you have cantrips that make you invul, a cantrip that gives u armor of earth (with stability nice), a glyph rez for teammates, a aoe condition removal. As a necro I wish I actually had all of these awesome defensive capabilities.

I wonder if you've ever played a bunker ele build, they are impossible to kill.

The only problem I had in AC story was the lovers that you had to keep seperate. We just couldn't get the aggro down. All the other bosses we did just fine.
