    Are you enjoying the endgame?

    This is coming from a guy that had a boner every time I logged in. Once I hit 80, nearing map completion I'm getting really bored with the game. I thought the explorable modes were going to keep me busy for quite some time. But they aren't even hard, just annoying, buggy and sometimes longer than they should be. There is no real reward to keep running them other than the 20 (or 30 for daily) tokens. And having to run them over 60 times just to get the full set kind of sucks. It's right in your face grind when it comes to gear. Either farming karma or farming dungeons. DE's are becoming repetitive as well, and Orr is a zergfest. I have never had that much fun leveling up before, but now that I'm 80..everything is quite ehh.
    Speaking of map completion, it becomes a bit expensive since the waypoint prices dont scale down for lower levels. Wayy too overpriced imo, considering gold isn't that easy to come by. A shitty goldsink.

    Also I'm not much of a pvper, I love pve. The pvp is alright but it's not really my thing. It's kind of disappointing considering Anet said this game was going to be based around not only pvp like GW1, but pve heavy as well. Seems like the pvp is where the focus is at level 80.


    I believe Anet should really take a long hard look at their current pve model. Dungeon wise. Fix those bugs and maybe change a few things around, how many tokens needed for gear. Or the time it takes to do certain dungeons like Arah. As of right now The citadel of flame seems to be the welfare dungeon. 15-20 mins for a full run. Things are just..out of whack so it seems.

    Anyone else have any thoughts, agree or disagree with me? Why or why not.
    Please explain, don't just say yes or no. Would like to have a nice discussion about this.

    Then maybe this game isn't what you want it to be. As of right now the main endgame aspect in the game is PvP, there's no denying that. I also prefer PvE over PvP, but there's plenty of other games that has the PvE I like so why don't play them all at once?

    I'd say yes to the poll, however, if WvWvW queues don't speed up it'll become a no for me.

    No you're not enjoying it, but with slower queues yes you will be enjoying it? =P

    Oh yeah of course I could go out and just play another game for its PvE, but considering this is an mmo and Anet said things would be different...I thought things would be different. Lol. I took a look at the GW2 forums and it seems it's flooded with threads with like minded concerns to mine so maybe Anet will take them into consideration and change/fix what needs to be fixed. It really isn't a bad model it's just things suck right now with how dungeons work and the pure grind fest associated with them.

    I have the feeling you didn't read the poll question. Yes means you are enjoying the endgame, no means..you're not =P.

    I need to try my hand in sPvP before I give a final answer, but I hate WvWvW. It might be good fun if you're part of a strong group running around, but if you aren't, prepare to suffer due to the lack of mounts, huge zone, and no teleport points. Spending 5 minutes running trying to find action only to find 5 people roaming around to kick my ass only to return to the very beginning of the zone turned me off of it pretty fast. I also find Orr to be a rather large disappointment, but I went over that in the specific Orr thread.

    Nice trolling attempt at the title versus the question in the poll. Really nice bait, 8/10. I wonder how many people didn't read the question asked in the poll and just voted based off the title of the topic...
    The spice must flow..

    Yes. Those poor people who thought "Endgame is quite lackluster..." was a question getting tricked to vote on that statement.

    the endgame for me is pvp, since that was one of their main selling points (at least in my mind) was. WvW and spvp are engaging and fun for me

    PvP endgame - yes
    PvE endgame - hell no

    Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.

    I feel like an idiot, but my mind is weary. Is that Hayley Williams?

    OT: endgame is ... non-existent from what I experienced.

    You must be a special kind of stupid to assume I'm trolling. Thread title was not a question.
    Please, go take your crap elsewhere.

    I didnt reverse questions, title wasn't a question. But I understand the mistake XD.

    I googled her name and that pic came up, so it seems it is. Wow though, she's pretty hot.

    She's really pretty, yeah. I think Karen Gillan is prettier. I think red hair in general makes a woman look very pretty and classy.

    And this is why the game doesnt have a sub. So that when you get bored u can stop playing and when they add more content and events you can come back till u get bored again.

    I agree with you on that. Or maybe I just have a thing for redheads
    I think the reason Karen Gillian looks prettier is because she looks a little more classy. Hayley is a rocker so she has that punk look. Regardless, both are very attractive women.

    I remember Anet saying they wanted to be the best mmo out there. I don't think that will happen if thats what they are going for.

    So far, yes.

    One of the reasons GW2 peaked my interests was the different approach to endgame. If I wanted the classic endgame model I'd play some other MMO.

    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
