    I agree with you Fencers that the largest world DEs will not be epicly hard...because Anet want ppl to experience them and down them. You're likely right in that they will be co-op obective based, and that it's doing those right rather, or at least as well as, the standard mechanics of a big world DE boss that will ultimately lead to whether it's downed or not. Ur laser example illustrates that quite well.
    But who knows rly at this stage.

    I also expect the larger DEs to not be done very often by ppl. It's more of a part of the story rather than a do it x number of times. There's no real reason to do these epic repeatedly ones unless u really enjoy the fight. We also don't know how often they'll happen, they could be part of the ones that happen every month of so.

    Personally, I wish Anet would hurry up and show us some more of the dungeons. That's where they've said the hardest content will be. It's of course really hard to judge just how hard an encounter is just by observing it...but showing the explorables would help in showing ppl that there really is very hard content (in theory ofc lol).

    They probably will be the biggest supplier of Karma, would make sense that the toughest DE gives the most karma. But yes, you do DE's because you like them, not because of some other fake carrot. And that's just fine in my opinion.

    Agreed. Though I'll settle with just about any information right now.

    I meant more that I don't think the bigger ones will be available that often...as in the elite ones. Shatterer etc aren't the highest. In that sense it won't be possible to really farm them...
    Not like it would be an advantage to either really...karma mostly being used for cosmetic things and all.
    That's something I'm actually not too sure about about - I expect we'll get more karma from a dungeon run than a DE...but I don't know excatly how this is broken down. I mean, uv got ur karma from participation, but what content gives more? Does karma from DEs increase as u level?

    Agreed. Though I'll settle with just about any information right now.
    Think there's a big release tomorrow me is excited asura

    I don't know about others. But those major dynamic event bosses are close enough for me.



    About instanced raids; No thanks.

    This seems relevant. (Don't think it was posted already, but then I didn't read the whole thread.

    WoodenPotatoes arguing that basing difficult endgame content on 5 man dungeons instead of raids is a good thing:

    Hope so too. Would be nice to come back from an exhausting exam and be cheered up with new information!

    theres only 1 big question i have about raiding , well its about 5 man dungeons. We do these 5 man dungeons and gearing up but what are we gearing up for ( towards ) it seems to be completly useless to have these 5m dungeons and have no raids to follow up, what are we gearing up towards getting pve gear to do pvp that doesnt make sence lol, imo i think there should be raids in GW2 , they have 5m dungeons and no raids so what is it excatly that we are gearing towards , if its nothing then why add 5m dungeons at all , and as the 5m explorer dungeons they are way to easy

    did we do MC back in 2004 to gear up for MV in this expansion? of course not

    explorer = heroic mode and require more coordination than any normal mode raid i've seen from blizzard since sunwell. it is what it is, crying like a big baby won't change it. the point of an mmo is to waste time

    Holy thread necro.

    Also I was so on the money about everything in this thread. Incld., the overblown "level 15 world boss" hoo-ha that followed in the weeks since. Sweet, sweet vindication! I'm da best. ;p

    But more seriously, holy thread necro. Closed.
