    Oh, that much I know since u can still cast if u have an enemy targeted and still out of range, the spell will "miss". Ok, lemme put forward an example. There are 2 races (Norn and Asura), 1 enemy target behind a mound (mound being the height of the Asura), Norn can see the target and will surely hit the target if he casts/shoots, but does the Asura suffer a miss cause of terrain (mound) standing between him and target even if the terrain is usually negligible for other races? can both shoot and hit said target without issues? Just as Mif said (which was also my experience), in wow my gnome had issues when casting lol

    From what Mif said "All hit boxes are the same size" I understood that both will be able to hit the target, I'm thinking even if the Asura "look" smaller they still have the same "height benefit" of other races.

    it does Mif is right, but I was saying you won't get a message that you cannot hit the target =)

    If the Norn can see the Asura, the Asura should be able to see the Norn.





    The Asura might have to tilt his head back to look the Norn in the eye, but any obstacle that would block LOS to the Norn would also block LOS to the Asura.

    "WHY DOES MY ARROW KEEP MISSING!?"

    "There's a tree in the way?"

    "WHY DIDNT IT TELL ME THAT?!"

    He used to be a good player until he took an arrow to the tree.

    LOL Freehoof, thx for the illustration, but what I was suggesting is both the Norn and the Asura are together and the enemy is behind the mound. The Norn can see the enemy but the Asura can't because of the mound.

    Mif understood exactly when he mentioned the healer problem due to terrain or the noom drowning lol But if terrain is the same for all races since all have the same hit boxes then its ok

    Really? I've been playing gnomes for years and never had such a problem with that. The only annoying part about being a gnome in the past was dismounting over a puddle.
    The most important thing to realize is, no matter what you experience you are never alone; no matter what you are struggling through, there is always someone who is more unfortunate.

    I play Tauren and i can't fit in doors... so, dismounting in puddles isnt so bad!


    Does anyone know any more information about being in multiple guilds in GW2? there was an article published like alst august talking about characters being allowed to belong to more than a single guild... just wondering if there is any new information on this or has this idea been scrapped?!

    Last I head you can be in multiple guilds, but you can only represent one. While your representing a guild, you can read and post in their guildchat and do whatever other guild-related actions there are.

    the pvp looks so good, i can't wait

    The fact that u can move and cast/shoot, u can dodge attacks, all professions have protective or crowd control skills, siege weapons, destroyable terrain. Its really coming out nicely

    Never played it tbh. It looks interesting though.
    They offered me a job there before...but unfortunately my Chinese isn't good enough. Shame, could have been a platform into the gaming industry.
