Thinking about picking up this game since I'm bored out of my mind between playing BF4 and LoL.
I'm a long time ex-WoW player ( 2007-2013 ) and ventured into different games on their launches ( Aion, Rift , Tera, FFXIV ) however I found them all too Asian grind focused ( even though Rift wasn't Asian )
So recently my search for MMO's stumbled upon GW2 ( heard from the hype on launch but never got into it cause MoP ) and after 2-3 days of solid reading and video watching it seems like a good game to try.
However I'm at a lost about classes and my main issues seem to be :
- Reading the official GW2 forums and venturing in the profession side, it seems to boil down that most people feel as if their class sucks ( mesmers QQíng about movement speed , warriors QQíng about being jack of all trades but master of none , Necromancers QQíng about rerolling cause no one wants them in dungeons )
How valid is all this QQ ? or is just the same old issue of classes moaning for the reason of moaning ? ( like saying their class sucks while it infact is just ''fine'' )
- My second issue is I'm used to playing mages , now GW2 has none of that ( technically speaking ) so I've been delving into Mesmers / Necro's and Elementals.
Now the issue I see is that Necro's are unwanted in PUG's ( for some reason ) and Elementalists seem daunting , as do Mesmers.
Given the fact that I played WoW for so long and every other big MMO , can I do fine with Mesmer or Elementalist if I just practice the class ? ( and in terms of '' how wanted am I ? '' would you guys rank Necro's, Ele's and Mesmers for PvE ? )
- Last point I was thinking about is playing a warrior, however I really liked some of the light armors in this game.
Are there any heavy armor sets endgame that follow the ''less is more'' tradition on female characters, or are they all just massive full body pants and breastplates ?
TL : DR :
- Wanted to play Necro but seems unwanted in PvE, false or true ? ( I do want to be able to get invited etc at lvl 80 )
- Can anyone give pro's and cons about Mesmers and Ele's ? ( I really like some of the Ele armor, but don't want to get overwhelmed with 20 moves )
- Is there any ''skimpy'' heavy armor in the game or is it all big legplates and full body breastplates on female warriors ? ( I like my virtual sexiness, shoot me xD )
