    LOL

    I've been in this thread since day one. =p
    Fighting or putting people down for liking another game is silliness. They both look like fantastic fun to me.

    I can't wait for GW2. I quit WoW because of burn out (not lack of content or any lame excuse like that, just after 6 years of it I just couldn't do it anymore) but I LOVE MMO's and I need an MMO in my life because I can only take so much TF2/SC2/L4D2 =P. I really hope this game comes out near the end of the summer or at least this year.

    Beta will start this year and they told their shareholders that the game would be released by 2012

    Hi all! Just finnished reading all 112 pages and decided to register after lurking on the forums for like 2 years :P

    Am I really the only one who will choose my race depending on their racial abilities, no matter how the starting zone or looks are?

    This is of course only if their racial abilities actually matter in pvp though, if not Im probably going to play a human or azura scholar of some kind :P
    Id like to see some more gameplay videos before I choose my class and race and I proably wont have a clear plan before Im staring at the character selection.

    God I cant wait til the game comes out!

    Welcome to the thread, Insaint.

    About racial skills, they are pretty much there for flavor. They will be lesser versions of the actual skills in the game.

    They said the racials will be lesser than profession based abilities, so they wont be game breaking or anything, mostly just cool stuff you can do like the Asura Battlesuit.

    And picking your race doesnt only affect your starting zone, it decides your whole personal storyline.

    Doozer: Would you mind elaborate on that? You could say racial skills in wow was there for flavor and to make the differences between all races bigger. Even though racials are kind of like small gimmicks they can be pretty gamechanging in both pve and pvp situations.

    Trolls: Thanks allot! I just couldn't stay quiet anymore. Even though Anet are releasing very little info I feel I should help in preventing this thread from ever getting lost even if its still on the top of page 1 atm :P

    Edit:
    Blizzcon: Even if racials only give the tiniest age in combat it will heaviky impact my decision :P Im just like that

    And I wouldnt know much about storyline before playing the game anyway so I cant really choose the most awesome storyline before actually playing the game first :P

    What about race "x" starting in the zone of the race "y" ? What will happen to the personal story?
    As i said before i will probably never play a Norn, but i love their ice/mountains/forest/viking theme, and i wonder what happens if i start there as a human.

    1053 members and 11250 guests online atm so I would guess quite a few! And I only registred because I felt I had something to add to the discussion. So if you dont have anything useful to either yourself or others to add, you shouldnt really make the effort:P

  14. #2234
    I worry about racials too, but i worry more about aesthetics, and just like in WoW, the female human looks the best so far in GW 2

  15. #2235
    Why worry about aesthetics when all the races look good? :P Im probably not going to play Norn though for any of my scholar characters unless I really love their racials. Even though they look cool, I just dont feel they fit the scholar theme as well as the other races :P

    I like to feel slim/swift, Norns are too big. Maybe i will like the sylvari redesign, dont like plants tho

    I think female norns are sexy, because they didnt make them really muscular or anything, just big.

    I hope Asura can create a giant Golem as one of their racials.

    This has been confirmed by the devs and seen in the gamescon footage, the asura actually get inside the suit, i dont know how good it would be for your necromancer though, it looked like it only did melee attacks.

    Nah there's no videos, but its like what you see in movies n such, where theres 2 balls attached by a chain and when the chain hits someone's legs it wraps around them and immobilizes them.
