I have ran into others a few times doing the same trying to retrace there steps to the Foe Fire. I have also gone in search of areas from GW that I remember like Droknars Forge and a few other areas just to see if I can find them.

I might try a GS, Sword/Sword build then.  I'll also def look to play with out the map icons.  One thing that I always found wierd was that for the most parts the DE's dont seem to be as plntiful as I would like them.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Game is A LOT more interesting with the handholding off ;) It plays a lot more like an open world like Skyrim...like

Try it & let me know how it feels ^^

Sounds like a good idea thing is theres no other classes sans Mesmer that interest me so will have to go with that class.

Elementalists are very fun to play too! very dinamic class...very versatile & fast paced since you are constantly changing attunements! Give it a try too if you haven´t already ;)

Be patient though...you are not going to get maps solved like you do in normal gameplay...but it´s VERY interesting specially if you really enjoy exploring! Take your time with that new toon,and you´ll experience a whole new game "kind of" hehe

enjoy :)

Got my Ele to 17 but found out you need to always be changing attunements to maximize their potential and I do not like that.  Also tried Necro but it wasn't for me.  Currently playing a GS Ranger but disliek the pet.  My 80's are Warrior, Guardian and Thief so as you can see I like Melee.

yea i didn't care for the attunement dance on the ele either.. if you like melee a lot you may like a sword/sword mesmer build they are fun and melee focused.. oh also saw you said you are on rall so am I feel free to say hi sometime.. leveling my mesmer now under the Aerowyn name:)

 

Hey Aero quick question.  How often do you use your shatter abilities on your Mesmer?

#1. Get off of the Guru and GW2 forums.  

#2. There's nothing wrong with leveling up another character of your favorite class. However, at level 80 there is nothing wrong with having a defensive version of your class and an offensive version.  I loved the Warrior and have struggled to keep leveling up other classes, so I made another one.

i run a shatter build so constantly.. at level 40 you can get the trait to get a clone on dodge.. also 5 points into illusion gives you reduced cooling times on your illusion skills.. i usually use mind wreck and the confuse one(F1 and F2).. i also use the signet of illusions that gives all your illusions 50% more health and on use resets your shatter abilities.. other builds if you don't want to shatter a lot  is using traits that give you more damage for having more clones out.. really a preference thing.. i like the AOE i get from the shatters that with staff is amazing.. feedback and mirror images are my other go to utility skills

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. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Yea I actually thought of leveling up another Warrior, it too was my favorite class.  My main Warrior is a GS/LB and I had a notion a few weeks ago to level up a Rifle/Hammer or Rifle Axe/Mace Warrior.

You should try Engineer.  It's pretty cool and the Kits make it truely unique.  The Engineer is the only profession that gets to choose its Class specific skills (F1-F4).  They are based off your utility skills.  You will truly enjoy setting off your first Big ole Bomb.  I would save the first time for a large group.   Gather everybody up and place your bomb and watch them fly.  It's awesome.  You wanna clear a spot, it will do the trick.  They can be pretty tanky as well.   There was no way I was going to play one, started one for my son to try in beta, and Itsbeen my main ever since.    Plenty of options. 

p.s. giving someone a wrench beat down is something special.  It may cause you to tear up a bit.  Some people think the wrench kit if for a turret healer like in TF2.  It's not, it's for bashing peoples face in.

If that sounds interesting, perhaps it's your answer.

 

Another angle is personal perspective.  Even if it's not magical anymore, consider yourself ahead just for having something worth playing.  You could do much worse.

Personally I think you might want to wait unless you are itching to do the living story stuff. I am just kinda waiting and checking out each update and find myself more and more satisfied with each patch.

Still hoping for a big end game instance like FoW, UW, Urgoz or The Deep

 

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I can understand that.  However, there is much more to the Engi.  All you described is two skills, yet with the engi, it change so much.  I only grenade uderwater, I don't like it that much.  Bomb kit however, I use all the time in dungeons but I can see people not liking to be up close and personal.  Melee guys can't used to the guy standing next to them, "Oh I aint gunna touch hit you, but I will kill you."    However, even if you dislike it, its worth dropping in occasionally to get the toolbelt skill, big ol' bomb.   Then you get to say things like, "Where did everybody go?" or "Which spot did you want me to clear a 300 raduis circle?"

You could run a duel pistol, elixir build and ignore the kits all together or go elixir kit for support or grab a flame thrower kit and go pyro all over everything, or my personal favorite, drop in a tool kit and smack someone in the face, whack them in the face, thwack them in the face and then crowbar them in the face.  When the get tire off it and run, then you use your magnet to bring them back and smack them in the face again.   :)

yea i have my charr engineer sitting there to level.. think my issue is they already have a limited weapon sets due to the kits.. when you write off 2 kits that narrows my choices down even more.. i'm the type of player that generally likes to switch out builds every 10 or so levels when leveling..

I find there are more people here that like the game than not, so not that hard.  Me, I still haven't finished with the game yet, but taking a break and playing something non-MMO usually gets me back in the mood for a game like GW2.

You might try this, because its what I have been doing lately. I'm been running around farming gold just for no reason whatsoever. I don't know, its just kinda satisfying to get t6 mats and rares in orr even though I have no use for gold at the moment. I too have hte best gear in the game and best infusions. I also have a Legendary, yet I still find myself out farming gold in Orr zones. WHen I hit DR in one zone I move to another.

Use http://guildwarstemple.com/dragontimer/events.php?serverKey=117&langKey=en to check for boss times and run the boss events. Those are pretty fun.

Look for a guild that enjoys running dungeons because there are kinda 21 different dungeons since all 9 have 3 different paths. Dungeons can be pretty fun if you run them with comrades with voice communication.

Fractals at 20+ is a pretty decent challenge. Makes it fun.

this is true. I am going to try this myself as well. Also, having the objectives on screen for completion not just "handhold" a bit but also is sort of an incentive to rush through everything because you get desperate when taking too long and your completion bar is not full.

The less you rush, the more you enjoy it too.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

yea that's what i found.. when playing with the markers on the map the game turns more into i got to get here to get this skill point or this vista and you b-line to that location and maybe stop and do an event that passes by on your way.. you take that away it makes it easier to just play by just roaming the land and enjoying the stories and events

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. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Honestly I really wish the game had been made this way originally, without any renown hearts at all.  The game would have been a much MUCH better game if it had.

The problem is humans are a lot like water, if you give us an easier path most of the time human's will take it.  Even if it's not good for them.  Putting in the "option" to turn the easy path off is nice, but in reality it's really just personally setting the bar higher for yourself.  Meanwhile everyone else is zipping past you at the speed of light.  

It makes it impossible to be an explorer type player & uncover things before anyone else in games now days, unless you use the cheezy "cheating" way.

Sounds like a good idea thing is theres no other classes sans Mesmer that interest me so will have to go with that class.

Elementalists are very fun to play too! very dinamic class...very versatile & fast paced since you are constantly changing attunements! Give it a try too if you haven´t already ;)

Be patient though...you are not going to get maps solved like you do in normal gameplay...but it´s VERY interesting specially if you really enjoy exploring! Take your time with that new toon,and you´ll experience a whole new game "kind of" hehe

enjoy :)

Got my Ele to 17 but found out you need to always be changing attunements to maximize their potential and I do not like that.  Also tried Necro but it wasn't for me.  Currently playing a GS Ranger but disliek the pet.  My 80's are Warrior, Guardian and Thief so as you can see I like Melee.

You can always deactivate the pet (there is a triangular arrow that says hide/activate) and play pet less, although I see no reason why since the pet generally does his thing and it is very useful to call the pet so he lure mobs to traps.

At the moment I use black bear and whiptail devour on swap, but bears are quite resilient unless they are overwhelmed.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

I have 6 level 80 characters and leveling another one :)

What drives me to do more of that? I like leveling. And I like, everytime I go through zone, I find something new. Dynamic event, that I've never seen, some nice characters etc. First step is to turn off map points (apart from waypoints naturaly) and just go out and explore. Ignore map completion. This has two purposes: you will level much slower and you don't have "magnets" that drag you to certain places (while ignoring places, where no such magnets are).

As for level 80 characters. I would actually suggest smallish very friendly/family like guild. In my experience it's much easier to get more social in such guilds and you find people you want to play with (and it actually doesn't really matter what you play, dungeons/exploration/fractals/jumping puzzles).

And of course, GW2 is B2P, go buy an offline game on gog and come back in a month. As ANET kicks in the new living story content, we can expect some nice changes in near future.
