OMG, Just Release the Game
Super excited about the next Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend. According to GBTV some of my areas of concern are being address such as, parties being taken into same overflow instances, improved key bind options (thank gawd) and stability. Although I had zero performance issues once I was in the game, changing characters and making new ones, often led to errors that prevented me logging back in for periods of time.
I can’t wait to delve more into my personal story but won’t be doing that until release. However, I might roll a race I have no intention of playing at launch and try theirs. I really like this solo RPG element being added to a MMO. I loved it in Age of Conan and so far, it’s even better in GW2. As anxious as I am to play more, I won't go any further into the PVE content before launch. OMG please launch this summer or I might have a coronary.
My Plan for BWE2
I expect the majority of my time to be spent doing PVP, WVW and crafting – especially crafting. I am still very conflicted about which weapon sets to use. I wish we could flip through three combinations or at least be able to bind a third by placing it on a hotbar. From my experiences so far, I will want a different set for PVP versus PVE and I’d rather not have to manually swap out the gear as I toggle between the content types.
Crafting whore that I am, I MUST be careful not to become completely distracted by the fact that I can eventually choose to master all of them. The lack of traditional quests and hence quest rewards, I may have to break from my usual top choice, cooking, for something that will provide gear. My current thought is to do armor and cooking or armor and weapon or armor and jewelry (whatever it’s called). Part of me is wondering if armor will be readily available for purchase on the auction house whereas weapons, being pivotal to your play style, might be the better choice.
Can’t wait. Can’t wait. I CAN’T WAIT!
