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.

It looks like its PvE changes. I haven't played PvP because I get destroyed most the time on one vs. one in WvW. The Guardian elite skills are pretty crappy, that's why I stick with my Mistfire Wolf.

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.

      Just finished season 1 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans. I enjoyed it, but man I can't help but notice the parallels with Gundam Wing. A young female working for peace, a semi-emotionless male pilot, an antagonist that disguises himself with a mask in a red mobile suit? Eh, maybe I'm looking too much into it, there are more differences than similarities. Since CN has the broadcast rights, I hope Funi eventually gets season 2 on stream... its the only Gundam they have. I will say I'm not the biggest fan of the designs on this one. I liked Gusion and EB-AX2, but that was about it.

      Fucking hell that was a ride. Just finished watching Steins;Gate and I have to say its an amazing show. I finally understand why people love it so much. Characters are pretty interesting (pretty bland and stereotypical but none-the-less interesting), story is completely bonkers (we're talking Serial Experiments Lain and Boogiepop Phantom levels of bonkers) and amazing, and the sheer emotional ride this puts you through is both terrifying and exciting.
      Sure it starts out pretty slow but once you get to the halfway mark it seriously starts moving at an intense pace. I normally don't praise anime this much but this is truly a great show, almost a masterpiece if I've ever seen one (probably one of the only shows I have rated at 10 on MAL that actually deserves the rating for all the right reasons, not just pure enjoyment). I highly recommend watching it if you haven't, it's definitely worth the time investment (and I'll admit it's not for everyone but if you want a show that tears your emotions to shreds and makes you think this is definitely one for you).
      Seriously can't wait for Steins;Gate 0 to start airing on Thursday (really hope CR has the simulcast for it). Now I just need to find time to watch the movie and the OVA before it starts. Also need to hope the VN this is based off of goes on sale on Steam so I can see the actual story that wasn't adapted for the anime (and to see all the other endings).

      I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over the place. There isn't as much action so far which is disappointing. All these characters are so OP, but that was what was great about season 1. Especially since Ainz vs. Shalltear was an amazing finale with two ultra OP characters going at it like a chess game. However I figure everything happening now is leading up to something bigger. They're spending more time world building in season 2 in which they did very little of in season 1. Plus season 3 was ordered. People can say what they want about Funi, but I bet there are some series out there that would have never been renewed past it's first season 6-8 years ago. Props to netflix too even though their series are hit and miss. I finished A.I.C.O. Incarnation last night, while it didn't blow me away, I enjoyed it.. same goes for ID-0. It's come a long way from Toonami, spending days downloading stuff off Limewire and torrents, or staying up til 4am in hopes Sci-Fi played Akira or Vampire Hunter D

      So far Netflix is 1 for 3 on their new series. Sword Gai was ok, but it was more like a GARO/Guyver type clone. B: The Beginning could have been better written. Maybe its the story structure that is throwing me off as they are definitely more western in flow. I'll probably watch both for another season. Children of the Whales was pretty enjoyable and my favorite of the three. I definitely look forward for its most definite second season. It was pretty charming in a Studio Ghibli way.

      I ordered a new router, its an AC1900. It should be coming in the mail today. It'll be a big upgrade over the crappy very low end belkin router I've been using for 2 years. Maybe that steam link I bought over a year ago will actually work wirelessly now. That thing is a nice concept but ended up being pointless for me unless it has a wired connection. Instead I stream all my games to my laptop which works alot better. Maybe this router will improve that connection and fix some of the blockiness I get, especially while streaming netflix at the same time.
