    I haven't done any HoM stuff, so it won't be a huge loss if not, but in the event I decide I want to do some HoM before release it would be nice...

    Help appreciated!
    Anet posted on FB a few days ago that there are some issues with linking - and they're looking into the problem - they expect to have a fix so that people can go back and link 'sometime' (I'd guess fairly soon - but as long as it's before launch it's all good)

    I'm wondering if anyone here has any views on why GW2 might be any different, and not suffer from it's dungeon content degenerating into simply a big token grind?
    The fact that the gear is cosmetic, as oppose to better.
    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.

    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]"

    Well you asked about the marketplace, and Bridger covers pretty much everything about the market in that video, so I assumed you had not.

  12. #832
    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

  13. #833
    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.

    This is why these forums exist, for helpful information, not trolling and bitching. Very informative and detailed post. thank you

    That is how I was referring to the marketplace. >.>
    He explains the marketplace in that video, does he not? Buy orders and whatnot.

    Edit: Trading Post, whatever.

    It was apparently on wednesday last weekend, which gave 2 days to download.. I'd assume they'll give a bit more than that this time, but I wouldn't worry until halfway through wednesday.
    They'll give us time, don't worry. :P

    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.

    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.
