What do mean?

As far as crushing noobs in pvp I would recommend simply practicing in sPVP or WvW and get to know your class and all it can do.  Also remember to stay light on your feet.  Nearly every other mmo will keep you rooted in place for just about all of their moves.  GW2 lets you position and attack simultaneously as you see fit.  Yes, some moves will root you, but those are usually your big finishers that really hit hard.  As far as games with PVP, the only other game I can think of that allows you to do that with their combat system is DCUO.

It's not like WoW where you can look up a particular quested item and say...OK, I want that let's plan out how I can get that. But in general, good gear is not very difficult to obtain. Most gear that will allow you to be effective is very affordable off the TP. In most cases, if you know what you are doing in a dungeon and aren't in a PUG ful of elitist wannabes who think you are all gonna run the dungeon in 5 minutes cuz the Guardian has all Berserker gear cuz theyz gonna DPS everything down in seconds., you will find that Rare gear (1 step under exotics) does quite well in dungeons. In fact, I'd say getting good gear is easier than getting the right gear. It's entirely up to you.

 

Edit:

Take a look at this link.

https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/professions/mesmer/List-Find-your-Mesmer-Build-Guides

Every single one of those links is a different build with varying playstyles and gear builds on a single class. You could spend months exploring all the possibilities one class has to offer.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

I personally love the game.

Let's start from the beginning.

There's 5 races to begin with, and each race has all classes available. There's plenty of customizing to choose from to make your charecter feel more like you. You then choose your charecter background which will mold your personal story. Granted the stories will cross pathes and all end up in the same area, but playing different races/classes/background help break up monotony in the game.

When you start playing, if you decide you don't like this race's starting area, you can easily make it to another's if you prefur theirs. Now I haven't gotten very far as I've mostly played on my brother's account, but watching him play, I see him go from crafting, fractals(puzzle/mission thingies), WvW, and quite a few other things. To me, it looks like there's plenty to keep you busy when you max your level.

You had mentioned concern about casual playing. There's no rush. Your personal story will not interfere with your leveling so if you want to do all the missions in a zone before heading back to do your story, it's fine. Nothing will interupt the other things you're doing. And if you decide to take a week off, that's ok, too. There's no "leaving you behind" that I can see in this game. As far as geer, there is legendary weapons which seem hard to get from my understanding, but it's not going to cripple you not having them. Alot of what makes you you is your skills.

WvW rewards got heavily improved, with ranks and abilities.

I'm rank 14, they don't feel like rewards, more like a "that's neat i guess" side effect.

Well, of course, if you were expecting unbalanced stuff like the DAoC realm ranks and abilities, you're playing the wrong game.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

Sanctum of Rall, Jade Quarry or Blackgate are probably your best bets for server.. class really depends on style.. what type of class do youl ike to play normally?

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

4/07/13 2:15:57 PM#47

Well I made it clear numberous times I feel the game is over-rated and for me it was just boring and lack luster, so lets just sum up those points as for the whole 'worth playing' yada yada stuff there from me. In the end its up to YOU if you like the game. Considering it sounds as you own the game, theres no reason for you not to play it and get your own opinion on it.

Is it to late to start? That is something I feel should never be to late with any game. Unfortunately, with events being a big part on leveling (at least without having to do hearts all the time which can be quite boring) it can be a little bit more tricky as some areas can be more 'empty', but its still very possible and I'm sure you will find people around to do them with. Some are actually relatively easy to do without groups as well so you can likely get through it just fine.

Will it be as good as when the game was launched? No, but thats any game. I always feel its 'never to late' to jump into a game in most cases, theres always a 'ceiling' of sorts that allows you to catch up. If you enjoy the game and like it, I'd say jump in and don't worry about being 'late'. In the end, you should be able to catch up just fine.

 

In short: If you enjoy the game, play it no matter how long its been out. This is something I can say about any game out there.

If you're looking for a little more PvE focus than WvW Elite, you can try Tarnished Coast Un-Official RP server with most guesters (folks who visit from other servers).

Edit: I like guard the most, but I've got 5 lvl 80s :) Depends on your playstyle.

honestly don't know.. jade quarry may still be good as they always are busy.. but maybe one of the EU servers would be better not sure though as I'm in the US

As a Jade Quarry resident I can say that if you want plenty of people for PvE JQ will work quite nicely for you there, but WvW is where we really shine. Just something about the WvW community there that's really meshing right now. Great coverage 'round the clock, great guilds and commanders... if you go for JQ, look me up and you'll be welcome to join with FIRE (firebat) if you're interested in a heavy WvW guild. We also do the guild missions and the like, some Fractal or dungeon runs, etc.

I solo'd all the way to max and completed the entire storyline without needing to enter a dungeon... after trying a few dungeons I couldn't be bothered to log back in.

You can definately experience all non-dungeon content on your own time... so considering there is not monthly I say give main story a run through, heck, you already paid for it anyways.

WOW thanks for all the response !!

 

I'm sold!!

Which server should I start on? (I'm alone, if any guild welcome for casual gamer like me I'm welcome to join you)

Also which class is preferably more enjoyable to you !? 

 

I can't believe this little topic can last 5 pages !! WOOHOO !! Now I can tell the community is great !

Sanctum of Rall, Jade Quarry or Blackgate are probably your best bets for server.. class really depends on style.. what type of class do youl ike to play normally?

Dolmong is from Asia though (Hong Kong), no idea what server would be best for him timezone wise.

ahh didn't see that.. true true..

Ooh, didn't see that either... Dol, you may want to check out the guild "FOO" on our server as well. They're mostly from your part of the globe. But FIRE always has it's doors open for good people. 

Oderint, dum metuant.

It's really not difficult at all to catch up :)

I got this game from launch, but I hardly play it coz of real life issue.

 

Now I like to start MMO coz I missed it, and looks like GW2 a good place to be.

 

1.)  How you feel about this game so far?  

2.) I'm a casual gamer, and I have lots of busy real life stuffs going on, will I still be having fun?

3.) Hows the questing and dungones?  I don't have time for long hours and raid, will I still be enjoying the game?

4.) I'm not big fans of PvP, but I do enjoy world event pvp if play together, how was it?  Rewarding?

5.)  Is this game rewarding towards gears/achievement if I spend time on it?

6.) More details will be good to me !! :)  such as any future plan/expansion that GW2 is planning to do ?? 

 

Great thanks guys for any insight.

1: It was fun in the beginning but I must warn you, if you plan on playing a ranger necromancer or engineer do yourself a favor and don't make any other class otherwise you'll notice a huge disparity between how some classes just faceroll and how some have serious bugs design flaws they never fixed.

2: As one of the most casual gamers I left this title because they didn't provide ample open world end game progression. There are Metas to free temples and to fight large dragons however the timers on them are poorly designed to get ready to spend an hour waiting on a dragon to land AFTER the time the system says it's coming with no indicator. The other thing that bothered most of us was how they completely nerfed the loot in the game, sure they have a daily rare guaranteed but if you truly are a casual gamer and not a dungeoneer you'll notice that nothing drops anything larger then a green for the most part, even the harder to kill Champion mobs you'll encounter so making money and/or gathering materials for the gear you need will be very difficult outside of a single dungeon called FotM or WvW which is pvp zone. If you like those things then you shouldn't call yourself casual.

3: Questing to get to max level was extremely fast, I liked it. I didn't like the VO's where you're just standing there with one dude with a weird background while the guy made weird faces while talking. I thought that was a cheapening experience for the story and the talking was like reading a book on radio instructions is was so boring and emotionless. Dungeons still do not have a LFG tool. Add to that the recent bigotry towards certain classes or whether or not you have a certain type of armor on before you join a dungeon group and you've got a less then pleasant experience. Also, most people have already done the story versions of the dungeons and most likely will not want to do them, but they are required to do the explore versions so you might find yourself stuck unless you are lucky and find a really good guild (most of which would have left the game by now I would suspect).

4: some say WvW is fun some say it's boring. I didn't like it because I'm a casual pve player. I further hated that all of the meaningful end game loot was either in WvW or in the single dungeon called FotM so if you needed to farm you had to go into the WvW area to do so and they have roaming bands of gankers who do nothing all day except find people who are alone and gank. Yeah that's always fun >.> Trust me you'll be doing an enormous amount of farming in this game.

5: If you're talking about Laurels it will most likely take you about 10-16 months to get the max gear available. If you're talking exotics (tier 6 whereas tier 7 is ascended) it's much shorter and you can mixmatch exotics (there are sets but for most that wasn't as important as the stats or "enchantments" tho you'll need some gold if you are going to get the gear you need from the crafted versions which is the fastest way, and most likely you'll run into the same problems most people have where gold was a very big issue due to Arenanet's newly implemented in Nov 2012 penny economy where you earn pennies but everything costs 100 bills.

6: Not sure if they are planning an expansion this year. I still frequent their forums on the off chance they might have actually come to their senses and listened to their fanbase finally fixing many an item that caused alot of people to leave this game. Don't let the server load indicators fool you full doesn't mean what it should and often even tho the server says full it's usually got a whole bunch of accounts there but no one can really say when the last time people logged in really was, their accounts can just be sitting there taking up virtual space and they haven't logged in since Nov 2012. :)

Hope my honesty was refreshing.

The best thing about this game is that it is never to late to start.
