    -Thanks steff0o for the image!


    Alright, so I'm sure you've seen me and/or stick freaking out like little girls in chat over guild wars 2. (Haven't seen it yet? Click me!)

    Well, they final profession will be annouced on Weds (It's mesmer!)... so I figured that now would be the best time to post this thread to start up a discussion about the game, its predecessor (Guild Wars 1) or anything else we want to talk about that is related to Guild Wars 1 or 2.

    Don't own GW 1? It's on sale constantly on steam, so if you have a spare few bucks lieing around, it is worth the investment. (tbh, its worth the invest on the MUSIC alone).

    NEWS!
    Leaked Mesmer Footage. - Thanks nine!
    Apparently Public beta is being planned! (Waiting on source)

    Anyways, I'll add more facts/news updates/stuff as it pops up. But for now, I ask you, what are you wanting to play? What race/profession? (Don't know 'em? Races and Professions)

    Personally, I'm rolling out as an Asuran. Probably Engineer (closest to my favorite playstyle), Mesmer or Elementalist.

    Basically: I haven't played GW1, but I'm very excited. It seems to be the only MMO whose developers get that you have to innovate and evolve the genre, not just copy WoW.

    Updated the "news' with Leaked Mesmer Footage. - Thanks nine!


    I am officially going to be either a mesmer or an engineer.

    I'll be playing a Human Necromancer most likely, unless I'm completely blown away by what they reveal the Mesmer to be capable of.

    I'd also like to point out that on top of GW1 being a great game worth playing, with the Eye of the North expansion you can earn exclusive items for your GW2 character, so it's really really worth playing. Some of us with GW1 could play with you.

    I am off for the next few weeks. I'd be willing to play with anyone (I should have enough cash saved up somewhere to get proper guild set up)

    I will admit to having released a fangirl squeal or two at this game.

    I think a modeller confused female armour with stripper suits.

    No... welcome to MMO gaming....

    You should see un-armored Female assassins in GW1.

    Well, I can name one MMO that doesn't do that. LoTRO.


    Regardless, GW2's female armour is much better than a LOT of other games out there. It's really not that bad.

    Despite my gaming name it does get tiresome seeing females with their breasts practically popping out of their armor. It's a really odd cliche that's developed over most MMOs now-a-days.

    I highly doubt a steal bikini is going to protect you from much other than jack diddly. :thumbdown:

    Anyway I've heard a lot of great things about Guild Wars 2 from my friends, I just don't feel like forking over the money to play it. Free to play or otherwise, no idea why.

    That Mesmer footage looks like a lot of fun. I enjoy playing classes that have a high potential for annoying people, although I do fear that I'll hate facing them in PvP. I think I'll probably go for a Norn or Charr Engineer, personally. Speaking of classes, removing the dps/tank/healer role system is the best thing that's ever happened to this genre. I'm happy that I'll be able to play a class that looks fun without worrying about how it would balance out in a group.

    I'm also really happy to have heard that there's no regional segregation for players. The more I hear about this game, the more I love ArenaNet's design philosophy (which seems to be "maximize fun, minimize chores").

    I believe I am going to be a Sylvari Elementalist, or if I don't like the look of my sylvari, then human.

    It's only an internal affair so far, though, but this is exciting anyway, because it means we're inching closer to an actual public beta of some description...

    ... I've forgotten to check my email that i use for my primary GW account. I should probably do that... make sure I'm not missing anything big.

    EDIT: since when I made this account 7 years ago, I used my dads email because I was afraid of the internet (go figure)... Yahoo has decided to de-activate the account since my dad doesn't check it anymore. And... he doesn't need it...


    I've reactivated it, maybe I can use it again.
