    Finally got a new psu and gpu so now Skelington can run the game at more than 11 fps. Hopefully they will keep working fine tomorrow unlike last time.

    Ohgod why is the water so fucking bright. Skelington doesn't want to look at the surface because it hurts his eyes so much and gives him headaches. And this is still on low settings.

    did my first AC run last night on my 31 mesmer.

    holy hell thats hard, died about a 1000 times! was very fun though, after getting some new gear from the TP and changing some of my skills, did a 2nd run that was a lot easier, but still died 100s of times.
    got 2 cool spells that are very handy, first a bubble that goes around the enemies, and reflects projectiles back to them, its very good vs the ranged mobs. and the 2nd lets me revive allies instantly witha 2min cooldown. once i adjusted my spells from single play to group play, it was so much better.
    Too cool for a signature

    AC story is one of the harder dungeons i say. Tried every dungeon story mode, and even some explorable mode, but AC story mode stands out as one of the hardest imo.

    I've discovered something fun about this game. Whenever people run across events that aren't being zerged, or else take actual skill, nobody sticks around or is willing to try it.
    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.

    Skelington should turn off water reflections and that might help. (NOT trying to troll, I've always wanted to reply to Skelington and call him Skelington.)

    Well, if you do frequent official forums, you can start adding people that do get it, one person at a time. :P
    I'll just go over there to argue with you, ESPECIALLY on the mesmer threads, because that would be really fun.
    <-- That is otterly adorable.

    You know whats fun?

    Playing a mesmer.

    You know whats really fun?

    Dropping Temporal Curtain on the stairs after the beast room in the Obsidian Sanctum and dragging people off the puzzle to their death. And if they survive they have to start all over again.

    Or watching cocky ranged sitting on ledges thinking they're safe, then yanking them off and getting swallowed by the zerg.

    Reflections were on off
    Setting it to "terrain and sky" works though. Wowsers, that's a lot more bearable.

    I am not fed up with negative views. What I am fed up with is the same few people posting literally hundreds of negative posts daily all saying the same thing. Jumping at every opportunity to bash or push down the game.

    I can understand people who like the game posting because they want others to play the game with them but for what possible reason could people who don't like the game keep posting over and over? Are they trying to drive other people away from the game? It makes absolutely no sense. Can someone actually be so bitter that they will go out of their way to try and drive sales downward. Any normal person would just move on if they didn't like a game. The only other possible alternative is that they are trolling. Trying to get a reaction.

    I visit the forums to discuss things about a game that I enjoy playing. To discuss aspects of the game, doing better with my profession, picking my traits, exploring, puzzles, etc. Those type of threads are drowned out with all of the negative posts from just a few bitter people and that's sad and unfortunate.

    Something amusing about the official forums: since you post on the forums using your official in-game handle, and adding people to a friend's list adds their whole account, there's absolutely no anonymity on the official forums. Makes it easy to verify just how much people lie, and then call them out on it.

    Obviously, there's other things you can use this advantage for, but meh. I just feel like this is the way the internet should be, period.

    That is so odd to me. I can see the warriors being top dog. Same with weapon smithing. But charr being the least common race? Oh come on guys, get to rolling more fuzzies.

    wonder why Mesmer is played so little such a great class. i actually though engineer was least played, i hardly see any of those around. but i see loads of guardians, i thought they were most played.

    I'll never understand why humans are this popular in fantasy games... @_@
    But in GW2 they're at least not completely ugly as usual. I don't play one nonetheless. =P

    Warriors dominating is no suprise, but Norn are more popular than I thought, despite their bulky appearance. (screenwise)
    Opposite with Sylvari, I expected the dryad/elves to be more popular.
    The unpopularity of the Charr on the other hand is a recurring trend since beta. Asura are as awesome as niche.
    The advantage of the dreamer is that he never has to face the chains of reality.
