    Longbow was good actually, very balanced in damage too, also i found out that you could just swap pet in combat and it would ress the 2nd pet you had.

    And also, after i got a Boar, it got a lot better than when i had the tiger, but the pet AI was really bad at times, and other times it was perfect.

    Longbow was fun. I'm not sure exactly how much of the damage the pet did.

    Speaking for myself, i did not notice my pets damage because it just kept dying the moment it went anywhere near an enemy.

    That's more common sense than theory crafting. But with the huge scope of different abilities and combinations of weaponry at peoples disposal theory crafting will likely turn the game into a chore for alot more people than it did for games like wow and swtor. I for one started theory crafting a bit in wow when i had time to raid hardcore, but there is absolutely no way i'd even try to bother doing it in GW2. Obviously there will still be theory crafting, but imo i think they'll be a much smaller % of players that do it compared to the other games.

    There is still more ideal builds than others for the playstyle you're going for. Lol.
    I would level my way to my perfect build.

    Makes inventory management cake, not sure how many actually noticed it.
    ....Oh how easier my play would have been if i only right clicked crafting materials at least once /sigh

    I liked how the items you could equip appeared in the hero screen so i didnt have to look for them in my actual inventory

    I think the one advantage GW2 has over other MMO's will be that it's neither free to play nor sub based. This is a smart solution to keeping idiot F2P players out, as well as keeping it cheap enough that people don't feel like they're wasting money every month.

    Awesome thread, thanks for posting it!

    Some of the complaints that I've read are puzzling to me. I've read on several sites that they think the difficulty is too high. And I also have seen complaints about the combat. People just need to adjust to the game mechanics.

    About combat, lag makes a huge difference. When it was laggy the combat was frustrating. But with no lag I found it a lot of fun.

    uhm sorry, but don't list duke nukem as an example please, this game was not "done" for 10+ years because the developers and publishers sucked big time and hyped it instead of producing it, so this was a very different situation. if you had made the comparison with id software or bethesda games it would have fitted better.

    I played ranger most of the weekend, greatsword/longbow and I loved it! Really amazing, fits my playstyle perfectly. Damage wise, the greatsword did more (when you could actually hit the targets), but longbow was great at keeping distance. I kept winning 2v1 in the battlegrounds by keeping them at a distance and slowing them with longbow, and then once it was impossible, id switch to greatsword, pop my Quickness/Swiftness utility skill and slice their faces in no time at all. I also played a lot with shortbow, and while it was okayish, I definitely prefer the longbow.

    I'm surprised MMO champ didn't even mention Guild Wars 2 on their homepage. You'd think the BWE would be at least foot note worthy.

    Guess only WoW matters.

    Exact what I'd thought, silly Blizzard fanboys.

    It's a WoW/Blizzard fansite, I'd be shocked if they actually acknowledged other games, let alone write a paragraph or two.

    They did make a reference to Guild Wars once, don't know what the occasion was anymore. But yeh, it's just WoW. Though I can imagine Curse not wanting mmo-champions to go GW2, they got guru for that.

    I agree about the lag, eps. in a twitch game like GW2. I am also puzzled by the complaints of difficulty. Though I understand some events or mobs were erratic [esp. respawn rates in certain areas]. Aside from that I found the game to be about the same difficulty as most other MMOs. I didn't die very often and solo'd most things up till the 20s on 3 classes.

    The most powerful skill in the game is walking in a circle. It utterly devastates mobs. There was an elite centaur event in Kessex where the town was being attacked or some other. Duo'd it with my sister [level 9] @ level 15. The event was a group quest and mobs were in the 20. In the same zone, in the lake was a group DE for the blood queen mob- just circle strafe.

    Personal story was also a breeze. I found the balance to be just right for the most part and always quite obvious how you are suppose to handle the area. Such as the bandit lieutenant DE chain or the centaur raid @ the garrison in Snowden.

    I would say the nature of combat probably accounted for a lot of these "too hard" complaints I seen pop up. Lag too, of course. Although the game ran beautifully for me without technical issue.

    Too hard? Come on now. This ain't Battletoads. -_-

    I died a lot of times. But I can accept it was because of the lag I had. Can't really tell, would need to be able to play without lag to see if it's that or my need to get better.

    It's a WoW website. (Don't give me wrong, I wish they gave GW2 more credit, but they aren't obligated to.) Created many many years ago when it was the "only" MMO on the market worth even picking up. Don't suggest them to change their name just because a new MMO has come out. I'm glad they've given us this subforum.

    Nobody's suggesting this. This is MMO Champion, not WoW Champion. Regardless of the initial reason the site was created when it was created, the industry has evolved beyond just WoW. If the site doesn't evolve with the industry, it will get left behind.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.
