If you choose to dungeon grind, you will be doing so to get something that is just as good as w/e you're wearing (possibly with slightly different stat allocation) that's your choice, but the main thing here is that it's a choice.
It's like if you got ilvl 397 gear from tokens, but you were also given a full set of 397 gear right when you hit 85. Would people still feel forced to run dungeons, if the only advantage was the fact that it looked better?
A large amount of people would still run them, but the vast majority of people would not feel forced, and only do it if they wanted to.
Damn prepurchases need to stop having issues so we can have the BWE THIS WEEKEND DAMNIT
Sorry, my forum account is still too new to post links. But if you go to BlueXephos' Guild Wars 2 channel on youtube, they have a 7-minute crafting video that is pretty informative. It's not the most in-depth, but he explains some things.
The title of the video is "Guild Wars 2: Crafting [Extra Footage]"
Thank you Falkman!
this thread is very informing however there is some info you could add now like pre order and collectors edition details.
Nice thread though just added to the need to pre-order this game for me
Make sure you pre-purchase instead of pre-order. If you pre-purchase you're guaranteed to get into all upcoming beta weekends and 3 days early access to the official game launch. If you pre-order, you just get a reserved copy of the game at the location you pre-ordered on the night of release.
You just made arenanet 59.99 my friend. they should give you a cut
This is why these forums exist, for helpful information, not trolling and bitching. Very informative and detailed post. thank you
Oops. Deleted my post after I answered my own question with a google search. But yeah, this was posted on the Official Guild Wars 2 blog.
We’re counting the days until the first public Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event, which begins on Friday, April 27, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and ends on Sunday, April 29, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). Hundreds of thousands of players from around the world will get their first taste of Guild Wars 2—and rest assured, we’ll be playing alongside them!
There are a couple important things you need to know about this Beta Weekend Event:
The only way to absolutely guarantee your access to this or any future Beta Weekend Events is to pre-purchase any edition of Guild Wars 2.
Customers who have pre-purchased the game will receive an e-mail next week with instructions on how to download the client and participate in the Beta.
This is a public event, which means that you’re not bound by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). So go ahead, feel free to take screenshots, shoot video, blog, tweet, write, or compose a rock opera to share your Guild Wars 2 experience with the world.
hmm a lot to take in,
currently i play wow, skyrim, lol and maplestory,
i will be picking up d3 and since looking at some of the GW2 videos i think ill pick up it too, ( i always wanted to play gw1 but didnt)
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for posting this information.
I was merely curious about Guild Wars 2 before. This post alone made owning this game a NECESSITY. I am stoked. I think ArenaNet is going to hit a home run with this game.
