    I was thinking about buying the game but wanted to try it out a bit more first. I would be happy to play with you if you're interested. If not, I might eventually buy the game. Still debating on what to try. I played GW during the beta but got a refund because It didn't sell me. I regret not ever getting very far after seeing some of the screenshots of the world.

    I'm in the EST time zone and I could play at any time. I have a lot of free time right now so I could start downloading the game whenever. If I like it, I will probably purchase it for myself once I get my taxes back. Would you be starting over with me so we can level together?

    Edit: I sent you a PM.

    if you start ... enjoy the game slowly ... do not rush or anything like that believe me i am one of those veterans at this game ... and in the end all i got left to do is dailies , few dungeons and maybe few events here and there ... its just how this game is built and everyone will reach this point eventually but better reaching it slower than faster ...

    okay awesome, i'll send you a pm with info. Ya i can start over with a new character. Or level with you with one of my level 80s. I've done nothing but spvp in this game and seeing as you can level your character throough pvp, i've hit level cap on a couple charactrers that way...but they are all still in starting zones, level 1 gear, no quests finished. It'd probably just make OUR lives easier. But i wouldn't mind starting with a level 1 character as well.

    I recently started up again as well after almost a year (since most of the current new mmorpg's were starting to bore me). Im on Blackgate and my ign is: Shinkoutetsu. Also for those starting over (but have had a previous character and your birthday passed), check your mail as you may get an anniversary gift that contains a miniature, experience charm (that instantly boosts a new character to lvl 20) and this birthday boosters that give a range of buffs (magic find, exp, karma, etc for 24 hours).

    I play this game. "reikken.4961" if you care
    I'm on Fort Aspenwood, but it doesn't really matter what server you're on except for WvW. guesting to other servers is free. I guest into Blackgate pretty often. almost always willing to party up and do anything (seriously anything. almost everything in the game is good)

    and yeah, following with what was said earlier, the game is beautiful and has great atmosphere. "leveling" is arguably the best part. Don't try to blitz through it.

    It had a very rocky start, but it seems to be getting much more interesting and improving.

    Oh and also, Celestina.2894 if anyone needs help with anything.

    yes we are but if someone is just starting it will be a boring part of the story since they skipped the rest of the story...

    Eh, not 100% true. For some yes, but I ran into a new player the other day who was rather excited ( of course they visited that recap NPC and also read up on the story so far)

    I absolutely HATED Guild Wars 1. GW 2 is similar but also very very different. A much much better game. I recommend it.

    If anyone wants to play I'm on ehmry bay but tbh I'm kind of into Rift and easing my way into Wakfu. But if enough people play ill hop on but I'm already level 64 so don't have any plans to switch servers.
    Final Fantasy 14: Level 50 (ilvl 96) WHM, Level 50 (ilvl 90) BLM, Level 50 SCH, Level 50 SMN.
    Guild Wars 2: (Ehmry Bay) 64 Ranger.
    Diablo 3: 70 Wizard, 60 Demon Hunter, 60 Witch Doctor, 65 Paragons.
    Wildstar: 37 Spell Slinger DPS.
    ArcheAge: 50 Gypsy.
    Trove: On and off. 20 Candy Barb. 20 Neon Ninja. Have all classes.

    yeah, b/c there were complaints saying that spvp was pointless they'ved changed/added a lot of features.

    You gain something called glory when you spvp. Think of it as exp in pve. You can buy items called tomes of knowledge with glory. They cost 1.5k + 20 silver. When you win a tpvp match, you win 1k glory and...i think like 5 silver. Each match takes only like 10 minutes or so and ques CONSTANTLY pop. By far the best way to level imo. You have to win of course....if you lose you still get glory and silver...just not as much.

    i actually have 2 level 80s right now and if i use my remaining glory i'd probably have another level 20...who i could get to 80 in a week or two through casually playing

    GW2 is just depressing nowadays. The game had so much potential, but from the balance team stream you can see that the devs have no clue what they are doing in regards to balance. It's sad because the game had some professional attention mid last year. There were some professional teams playing like Denial Esports. But, now after they realized the folly of the dev team every real PvPer quit the game in favor of Smite.

    On top of the terrible balance team, it doesn't help that rebalance changes occur once in a blue moon and even then the changes are so minute that they don't change the catastrophic failure that is this game's PvP.

    That being said it does have the most competitive PvP in the mmorpg genre, but that's not saying much.

    As for PvE, it's the same old story new package. PvE hasn't changed much in big budget mmorpgs for a long time because devs don't want to take risks by reinventing the wheel. If you are interested in PvE content I'd point you to Path of Exile or Wakfu.
