Guild Wars 2 Point of No Return

  • Guild Wars 2 Living World Season 2 continues January 13th!

Interesting, Logan enters the fray. Trahearne has played a very small part. Rytlock has had the most epic part of the story so far. Caithe recently joined, adding more questions than answers... and now Logan enters Living World. He's always had a close bond with Caithe... it will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

I haven't read much about the warrior changes, is it for WvW and PvP only? Or does it apply to PvE as well? I wish they'd address the Guardian's speed. It seems every class has a trait or signet to increase their speed. Guardians only have 2 skills and a staff attack that gives small 3-6 second swiftness boosts. You can be left in the dust in zerg rushes. Thankfully everyone is using their skills that grant swiftness to those around them, but still, trying to catch up can be hell.

I'm excited about the trading post and crafting menu revamps.

It doesn't say it is for PVP only so I'm assuming it includes pve. Are there many skill differences in pvp? I know gw1 eliminated some elites from pvp and changed some skills specifically for pvp, and when you switched to that mode you'd see the differences in your skill bar. But I haven't noticed any references yet to pvp or wvw skill changes in gw2. I should look it up.

This patch is making changes to the guardians elite skills but it doesn't say what changes exactly.

My brother mentioned the same thing. He said PVP is basically full of the equivalent of 100 star battlefield veterans sitting on shit buckets. Its so one sided that you either have to stop playing PVE and dedicate all your time to become a PVP expert or you don't have a chance at all. He did seem to like the WvW tho.

Season 2!? What was season 1? :confused: I need to go read the wiki. :P

 

*edit*

 

Oh! I thought the living story was something different and ended with The Dragon's Reach Part 2 and we were getting some massive new content already. ^_^; This is what happens to me when I post on my phone while watching a movie. XD

I was hoping they'd do the Halloween event again. I see everyone with cool titles and Halloween gear from time to time in the game.

I wish my charr was level 80 already. Conditions don't usually bother my necro. I have no problem removing, inflicting or eating Conditions for hp. Almost every skill I have is condition related. Depending on my skill setup I can transfer all conditions from all allies to myself, then transfer them to an enemy and then spread the conditions on that enemy to all others in the area. Lol. And then I can go into plague form and inflict all enemies with a variety of conditions for 20 seconds, and then repeat. XD

When you get to 80, you'll find that the skills and moves that you were accustomed to dominating no longer do so. XD The lvl 80 Risen can continually inflict conditions as fast as you can remove them. You may benefit from not having cool downs, but they will drain your meter fast. Fighting mobs becomes deadly. The Mordrem inflict agony, which the the most deadly of all conditions. My Greatsword of the Sunless does it as well and I love it. Its kind of like poison or bleed out except it lasts longer and takes life away a lot faster. I think Agony is only in living world, Tequatl, and Fractals of the Mist. Infusions are the only way to gain agony resistance in which I have none. I want to actually get a legendary weapon before spending that amount of time on any infusion.

Lol. That's cool, my condition setup is only good in a group of ppl anyway. My standard power build is decent enough for my range level but in higher areas I get dominated on easily. I think I'm going to get some new gear on the trading post. A few basic things like better accessories and what not for a few silver each. I realized that my charr doesn't have a single earring equipped and he's already level 57. Those must drop about as often as an under water breather.

They don't drop at all I think. Do you visit the karma merchant at each heart when you complete their task? They generally sell stuff like that. It sucks that you cant salvage it when you find something better, but its more wallet friendly to do so. The heart vendors always sell a cheap and an expensive version of each trinket, the latter sometimes behing double the price of the cheaper one. I didn't buy a single wearable upgrade from the TP. I got them from karma vendors, laurel vendors, and the WvW tourney rewards.

Ah.. I was under the impression I should save all my karma points until I hit level 80 to buy some armor with. Ive only spent maybe 10 karma since I've owned the game. Since those heart merchants only take karma I've been ignoring them. ^_^;

XD You're such a hoarder! You'll need about 500k karma to buy a complete exotic set. But once you hit 80, doing world boss trains and the temples of orr will get you what you need pretty fast.

Gold/Silver/Copper are much more rare and accumulate 1000x slower than karma. I probably get 50k-100k of karma a week doing level 80 stuff.

Wow. O_O I'm not a hoarder in real life but in games I definitely am. I'm really bad with my in game items for all games that I play. Especially rpg games. I had probably 10,000 items in FF7. X_x I'm glad gw2 has a "sell junk" option. I didn't realize at first and I ended up putting 30+ bone fragments and something else in my bank thinking that I'd need them for something eventually. ^_^;

Or a Mithril node.... -_-; I guess I won't be playing AW today. I gotta knock out this story and explore the new area of Silverwastes.

 

EDIT: UGH... what a cliffhanger! You're lucky you'll get to play most of these consecutively until you catch up....

It looks like the new nodes are only "very rare drops" from black lion chests. I'm not going to buy a bunch of keys with actual money just for a chance of getting one. But these new ones are sellable. Ppl were listing then at around 700 gold a piece last night. The mystic forge node is apparently the most common one. Those were 33 gold as of last night.

      Star Trek Discovery Season 2 was amazing. Significant improvement over season 1. Bringing in captain Pike, Spock and the Enterprise as well as tying the entire Discovery series into the timeline and canon of the original series was well done and extremely entertaining to watch. I wish they didn't f*ck up the klingons as much as they did in season 1, because aside from that Discovery is now a solid show that ranks up there with TNG and Voyager for me.

      Finished Ultraman on Netflix, the story was good but it left too much unanswered... and the biggest travesty was the CGI. Holy cow it was wildly inconsistent and mostly all bad. The distance shots looked like some PS1 stuff, like they didnt know what shading was. They spent all the money on the final fight which was awesome, and then the last few minutes got really bad.

      I need to buy a lawn tractor soon.. maybe this weekend. The last lawn tractor I owned was a piece of crap hand me down that nickel and dimed me to death until I got rid of it and got a decent push mower instead. But my yard now has just over an entire acre of just grass. No way in hell I can push mow that. I might get a Cub Cadet or John Deere tractor. I need to see what might be on sale. I had the lawn mowed at the end of last year right when we moved in and its $40 per mow. x_x

      I never watched the original Fruit Basket because the description just sounded too silly. The premise of all anime is that at least one of the protagonists has a flaw. Luffy can't swim, Inuyasha turns human on the full moon, etc. I just generally dislike when a flaw is so overwhelming it's a massive inconvenience. BUT Since the simuldub started Friday I'll be watching the reboot. It seems to have a huge following and the first ep was quite good.

      Watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse tonight and I have to say the movie was spectacular and definitely lived up to all the hype surrounding it. Probably one of my favorite superhero movies now and I fully understand why it won an Oscar.
      Story was great from start to finish, though I really don't know what to think of the animation style it certainly worked in this movies favor (a little jarring at first but I was definitely starting to feel it toward the end), and while I'm not usually into the music used into the show I have to say the soundtrack is fucking awesome. Kinda wish I would of went to see this in the theater but that didn't really diminish my enjoyment of the movie.
      Really hope we get another one like this (seems there is a sequel of sorts in the works and a few spin-offs as well) because it definitely deserves one. I also have to say the Spider-Man Noir is probably going down as my favorite Spider-Man.
