Guild wars 2 is the best MMO I have ever tried, better than World of Warcraft in its prime, in my opinion.
And the game is NOT a grind, hell even World of Warcraft is more of a grind.
I can't believe you would ask this question on a WoW designated website. All you will get here is WoW trolls bashing it for no apparent reason. Ask this question on a neutral forum that doesn't favor one game over another, but since you have asked it here I will tell you my answer. Get it. First MMO that made me lose all my interest in WoW and its upcoming expansion(I have always pre-ordered WoW expansions and joined the midnight launch events). I am not going to get in to too much details, but it has an insanely competitive pvp and a nice pve(GW is all about pvp so this is a plus and I nice one) to go along with it. Explore on my friend.
You must be playing a different game, GW2 is really ligth on the grind:
- There is no XP levelling curve.
- You can fully play structured PvP by getting one character to level 2.
- You get XP for crafting, the crafting is really quick, no need to go off and make a coffe whilst you wait for ore to be turned into ingots.
- The only "grind" in the game is optional and for cosmetic reasons.
and so on, GW2 is one of the least grindy MMOs out there.
If you're an avid mmo-player then you should know that every other mmo feels messy with a big group of players, if you're randomly mashing your buttons without any knowledge of what you'll doing, you'll end up dead on every dungeon/pvp scenario.
Guild wars 2 is amazing. I haven't had so much fun since The Burning Crusade.
It's the best MMO since Vanilla WoW in my opinion, definitely worth the money, and there’s no subscription
It won’t be easy to find a copy though, so gl with that
No buy WOW MOP when its out instead you won't regret it.
If you've ever played Phantasy star games, it's like that but with a better following.
Just because you couldn't get a full set of max stat end game gear within 2 weeks of the games launch, (which many people have btw) Does not mean it's a grindfest game.
Even WoW couldn't be considered a grindfest game, go buy it and tell me how long it takes you to get to level cap and get max stat gear.
The game is AAA and easily worth every single penny and much more of the purchase price. And to top it all off there is no sub fee.
I took a look at the thread from my phone and decided to buy the game. However I couldn't find it in any store that I went to in Calgary what the hell. People from EBgames told me even the digital version is sold out.
Oh bro, we had a pal that just finished his service in the army recently and missed the launch. Right now the digital version is locked but we going shopping with him because apparently some stores may have boxes still . But that means he haves to pay more because of the tax lol xD
