    This is my official statement that the OP of this thread is to blame for 1. Making me pre-purchase the game. 2. Cause of my death if I play this game for 60+ hours straight with no bathroom breaks.


    OP's awesome post is what convinced me to give this game a try.

    I only have one question after reading all that. People in Beta do they actually deliver?
    I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me.
    We are not monsters! We are not the mindless wretches of a ghoul army! NO! We are a force even more terrifying! We are the chill in a coward's spine! We are the instruments of an unyielding ire! WE ARE THE FORSAKEN!
    Those who do not stand with the Forsaken stand against them. And those who stand against the Forsaken will not stand long.

    Everything they promised is in there one way or another, with a tweak here or there. For the first 2 zones that is. The only thing they scarped is auto scaling up.

    There is no mounts at all, you use waypoints to travel around the world.

    No mounts in the game at all as of now. Arenanet have not said that they will never put mounts in to the game in the future, if it is purely for eye-candy aesthetics but they wont be mounts you could use to zip about the world.

    Guild Wars 2 does not need mounts in the game as they diminish the immersion of wanderlust and exploration and ofc the grand sense of scale if you are moving about very quickly. If you need o move about fast you have waypoints you can use.

    No no i explained myself badly

    I dont want mount to reduce exploration of the world. I simply asked about mounts, slow off, simply cuz an horse would bring you around a little more faster than walking. I know in wow exploration is non existent, that's why i asked. I played in vanilla and the idea of ground only mounts is good.

    You automatically move faster when out of combat, but there are no mounts currently in the game.

    There is also a boon named Swiftness that'll cause you to move faster in combat as well as out of it (on top of the natural quicker movement out of combat) which can be acquired from certain abilities and items. Also, you can get a Swiftness boon in cities that have an extended duration (something like 5 minutes, methinks).

    Finally, I'll just point out that ANet has said there will be no mounts in the game at release. They have also said that there will be no flying mounts in the game, ever. These two statements were published in conjuncture.

    Is it true that: guilds will have a levels, the guild size will be dependant on its level, and upgrade of guild level will require in-game gold? I.e. a regurgitation of L2 clan system, basically.

    Was looking for some info on race specific abilities. Are they all open to you or does it depend on what you chose in your story. For example. If I chose to be a Human necromancer and in my origin story if I chose to worship Grenth, could I not use the Hounds of Balthazar elite skill because of that?

    OP might consider putting race specific abilites under each race.
    In my day we didn't have World of Warcraft or Guild Wars. We had World War 2, and when you shot at the Germans it aggroed five thousand of their friends!

    Racial abilities do not depend on personal story choices. I will also add that racials can not be used in Spvp due to potential racial imbalance.

    hello guys, one short question from me:

    I have bought the digital pre-purchasable version of GW2. There will be no events / testing from now on until the release date, correct (no way to log-in and see anything in game )?

    thank you.

    Nope, no more beta events until release.

    Another stress test is possible, but highly unlikely.

    It seems more likely that there will be 2 or 3 more stress tests before release. There was a major update of the client during the one 2 days ago, (which did indeed give a 5 minute warning and allowed immediate re-log in after downloading the update) and it seems very very likely, given ArenaNet's desire to polish the game, that there will be more stress tests. I'd suggest checking either of the following forums for announcements.

    guildwars2forum.com or guildwars2guru.com/forum

    If you'd like to know the background of the game, from the developer's point of view, they have 3 years of blog posts that contain a lot of information about the game and lore: arena.net/blog/category/guild-wars-2

    Also, be sure to start up the game every 2-3 days. They've been pushing out updates. 3 since the end of BWE3 2 weeks ago. Devs have encouraged this so you won't have much, if anything, to download when the game goes live.

    Have fun. I've only been in BWE3 and the most recent stress test, but it's great so far!

    (Since I'm new here, they're not letting me post full links - thus the abbreviated ones above.)
