Guild Wars 2: The Official Thread
« on: August 10, 2010, 03:48:06 PM »


I did a search of Guild Wars and saw that many of you on here have played this game and loved it. I know Crixx was/is a big fan himself.
Don't know if all of you guys have been following the trickles of information being released by Arenanet over the past few months, but they taking it to very exciting levels these weeks.

Some big news that happened was the removal of the "healing class", yea no monks and no more "GLF Monks!" spamming every town.
They haven't been "too clear" meaning there still might be a class that could be only for team support, but to compensate for the "monk removal" every class has a dedicated healing skill.

Other big news is the increase to LEVEL 80 from LEVEL 20 in Guild Wars 1.
But don't get pissed off yet. Arenanet is going really bold in wanting to change standard MMO design.
This level 80 is not a grindfest like World Of Warcraft. The experience gap between each level is the SAME, meaning that you get to level 80 from level 79 in the same time you took to get from level 1 to level 2.

There will be no "dying" in guild wars 2, but a "downed" state in which a player can revive you from that downed state.
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/combat/healing-death/

On top of all of this the game will feature dynamic in-game events:
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/dynamic-events/

Crafting your personal story:
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/personal-stories/


Guild Wars 2: Design Manifesto

All you guild wars fans make sure to go and read this:
http://www.arena.net/blog/guild-wars-2-design-manifesto

Yes, a MANIFESTO for a game, not a very common thing and a bold move by Arenanet.


Professions

Also so far in the trickle of news information, 3 professions have been revealed that we all know and love:
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/elementalist/
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/warrior/
http://guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/ranger/


You can see some gameplay from each profession at the above pages.


Guild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon

Additionally Guild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon (Book) for all those that like reading.
The book ties in the events of Eye of the North and "WAR IN KRYTA" (War in Kryta is an ingame event (mini campaign) that started a few months ago and can be done on any character that beat prophecies of eye of the north) and leads up to the events of Guild Wars 2.
Arenanet plans to release 3 books, so part 1 (Ghosts of Ascalon) just came out and the second is planned for December 2010 I believe.

http://www.amazon.com/Guild-Wars-2-Ghosts-Ascalon/dp/1416589473/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1281469173&sr=8-1



Gameplay is set to be revealed at Gamescom in 2 weeks time.

Also the manifesto video has been released today, see it at:
http://guildwars2.com/en/

So all you guys pitch in what you think, and well with respect to Guild Wars 1, I highly recommend ya'll revisit PVE and take part in the "War In Kryta". Good Stuff. New end-game weapons to earn, new enemies, bosses, daily bounties etc.

O and if any of ya'll need a guild if returning to Guild Wars 1 PVE, I've got one up, 4 trini's in it so far along with some international peeps and the guild group intends to shift to Guild Wars 2.

I wonder if some of those scenes are recreations of areas from the first game.

Destroyers with purple highlights? Looks like a destroyer/margonite/mursaat hybrid...

Is there any information on how titles from the first game will affect your character in GW2? Items, text on a wall etc?
:P random text doesn't go out of date does it?

Gimme awesome warrior armor :). An elementalist is the one character i don't have :P Hit me up sometime - Anax Avatar.

It's funny - this game it falling out of it's prime, and after what is it, 4 years? I'm just getting into it hardmode style.

Saw one video with rangers - ranged artillery ftw!

Well I bought the Ghosts of Ascalon book.
Halfway through.
Those purple destroyer looking things are CHARR :O, as mentioned in the book.
That purple, crystal like dragon apparently when awoken turned everything below it as it flew into purple crystal.
The book is very well written and explains so much that has happened, describes in detail the new towns in Guild Wars 2 and highlights a great adventure with all the races. Really good stuff.

Wrong vid. lol. but seriously, if a good few ppl on this site end up buying the game, i will too. it looks pretty sweet.

always wanted to get into the MMO scene but WOW's boring to me and all the interesting action MMORPGs are Korea or US only.

Guild Wars 2 ~ New Professions & Guild Wars 1 Link to Guild Wars 2
« Reply #13 on: February 22, 2011, 05:04:16 PM »
Been a while since I updated this thread. Since my last posts there were 2 announcements of new professions.

Meet the Necromancer:
http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/necromancer/

And the Guardian:
http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/guardian/

The Guardian, I think alot of people will like. This is the support class I expected in my original post. Awesome stuff.


Additionally Guild Wars 1 now has the following link to Guild Wars 2 via the Hall of Monuments added with the Eye of the North Expansion.

http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/hall-of-monuments/

Hall of Monuments Calculator: (Type in any character name and see their achievements and score).
http://hom.guildwars2.com/en/

The Hall of Monuments records all your achievements with each monument holding things like armor, minipets, heroes, weapons etc. Based on how you populate your Hall, you will receive rewards and titles in Guild Wars 2. People that achieved the highest rank in Guild Wars 1, "God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals", will also see this carried over to Guild Wars 2.

It is amazing stuff and I wish to brag that I have completed my Hall :)
Type in character name "Aria Yevena" in the link above.  :banana:
