OP  12/30/12 1:42:45 PM#1

As 2013 looms on the horizon, many Guild Wars 2 players are starting to think of rolling a new character. In today's GW2 column, we take a look at that and what type of characters might be a great fit. Check it out and then let us know what type of character you're planning to start in the comments.

I’ve been playing the same character since launch, only slightly dabbling in other professions.  I’ve seen much of the world and fought so many enemies.  There are still things for me to accomplish, but I got the itch to start something new.  A new profession, a new race, and a new personal story all add up to many more months of play time. 

Read more of David North's Guild Wars 2: A New Year, A New Character.


Some players love to make really goofy looking characters. Maybe I should go for a mouth-breathing nerdy IT Asuran.

I played an Ele to 64 at launch and I just got the itch to try something new.  I chose to make a norn warrior since I loved the norn story.  I hated my warrior in beta, but decided to give it another shot since I too wanted to try melee.  I ended up having a ton of fun and couldn't go back to my ele.  I am now an 80 warrior and I have to say the itch is coming on again.

Been there, done that.....

Already have one of each race, and one of each class, got four 80's all with full exotic, main with full ascended and legendary, lowest level alt is 46.

Only way it would be a case of new year, new character for me, would be if they introduced a new race or class.

Been working a couple new characters myself... The guard is all decked out.  2013 should be one hell of a year!

Also, you sound like a very productive and busy person Byr :)

IF deciding between war or guard, go warrior. much more flexibility in playstyle. War seems a pretty straightforward class, but all the different ways you can spec really make it complex.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

I will be playing GW2 alot more in 2013. These jumping puzzles have really sparked my interest more in the game. I will admit at first I wasn't that impressed, but if I look back on my gaming history, I am always very reserved in the beggining. My dilemma as usual is just what profession to roll and stick with.

Does tempt me to do the same making a new game, maybe not in GW2 (bores me) but I'm sure another game it could be interesting to roll something new, or perhaps just try out a game I never fully gave a chance in the past.

 

Either way its always entertaining to see just what might come.

Good luck with that.  Starting a second character is when the game became a bore to me.  And that was after 3 weeks of playing my mesmer to 80 and getting full map completion and exotics and crafting up.  This game just doesn't have me going alt crazy the way WoW did or even the way FFXI did(although that was more job crazy than alt crazy, same character different job).  Really wish the FFXI job system would be copied by someone, but anyway

GW2s issue is longevity.  It doesn't have any.  When they fix that, I'll be back and praising the game.  Until then, it doesn't deserve the MMORPG label, at least not my idea of an MMORPG.

After hitting 80 on my awesome guardian and outfitting him in exotics I finally broke down and started an eke. She just hit level 35. I am enjoying my 2nd run through even more than my first. What a great game this is.

Charr Warrior in the works. 

I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

Timely post.  I have been playing my 80 Norn ranger for awhile now and was thinking to make a new character.  I made a Norn Guardian.  Maybe I'll change my mind and go warrior? 

 

Not sure how much I'll play the alt though as my main still keeps me busy.  Trying for that 100% map completion, and it is one BIG world.

 

* I would have picked a different race but I think for female characters the Norn have the best hair styles.  It's a shame the human hairstyles are not the same or as good.

Ha, ha, ha, ... this would be possible to me only if Gw2 introduces new class. :-) As altholic I have all possible alts, truth is however I guess only in Wow and Swtor I will always have full set.  Guess will have a lot of them also in Gw2.

I have all 8 slots filled with atleast a lvl 50 of every charaacter class, 2 just made 80. I think early 2013 will be the time i start playing around with the dungeons on my 2nd lvl 80.

I leveled two characters to 80, Ranger and Warrior. Now I'm just playing with all the classes to find one I want to work with. I found I like the Mesmer.  The Necromancer is fun, too. I can't get into an Elementalist.

Only issue these days is everyone is running the new endless dungeon and all the 80 zones are pretty much dead. Having 2 lvl 80 toons and being away for the christmas break I come back and everyone is way into the endless dungeon and not overly keen to come back running lvl 1 of it again.

 

I for one am now unsure whether to continue playing or move on, since grinding the same dungeon over and over is boring to me as well.

 

I do agree the leveling is fun, more fun than end game for sure. WvWvW is getting old fast, due to hacks, exploits ,and server hoppers making it a one sided event every reset.

 

GW2 is a great game no saying, but it does have a few new features added in, that in my opinion has killed itself alittle bit, Endless dungeon being No1, since hardly a soul in end game zones now major event undoable etc.

 

Hopefully some servers are not as bad as this, but the server I am on (busy SEA designated server) is dead outside of Lion's Arch where all the players sit screaming out for Fractals of the Mists dungeon runs for there tier.

 

Just my thoughts from a player been playing since Day 1

 

Cheers

Used to have time for alts, but with family life my main (Norn guardian) still not in a full set of exotics yet. If I was to make an alt, it would have to be a elementalist tank spec. All earthquakes and CC to the Max. But I love my support guardian so much, I'm not upset one bit that I don't have time for an alt.
