    About Tera and GW2 armor.. I don't think you can really compare them since styles are so different.

    My thief(GW2) and slayer(Tera). Both medium armor users and are around level 10-15 on the pictures.

    I didn't play human with medium armor on Tera, but I assume this would be the same armor on human


    I do not have heavy armor user on GW2 but I think the Tera's heavy armor was just too ridiculous. My heavy armor berserker at starter island ~lvl5-7

    Castanics are a bad comparison though since literally everything they wear is designed for maximum hoochiness. Having said that, I always liked the chain mail lingerie. :P

    Every female in TERA is designed or hoochiness.

    Tera armor attack on GW2 thread. ._. These are the armors you can preview when you create toon. Should be low, mid and high level armors:
    Heavy:

    Medium:

    Light:


    I would have liked to dye some of those but the dye system wasn't quite nice (dyes last max 7 days, min 24h). So most of the time you were running what you got... yes even that hot pink miniskirt. -_-" It was once of the reason I could not roll High elf (other being that weird idle animation Fencers mentioned earlier)

    As soon as I can figure out what the hell I am wearing on my feet in Guild Wars 2 I'll post more screens. Till then the puzzle as to whether I am wearing long soggy socks, thigh boots with a feathered diaper or clogs that go to the knee is unresolved.

    Oh the horror. Don't link that dress. D: I have seen so many light armor wearers running around with it. It isn't really outfit for swamps, mountains and places filled with zombies... or war.

    My thief has outfit for boots

    Well, CM wasn't as bad as AC, but it still wasn't particularly enjoyable. I guess I've been spoiled by the fact that in every other MMO I've played it's not common for people to wipe/die multiple times on content that's not at max level (and many times on non-bosses at that). It felt like we were doing heroics for the first time with no tank and no healer. :P

    We still have 2 more to go for the stupid monthly. I'm thinking Twilight Arbor (at least someone said it's "easy") and not sure about the other. I'd like to do Honor of the Waves for the story, but I think my bf just got the mail for that (his highest is 74?), so he's barely entry level.

    Are you really dying all over the place? Might be some really bad luck with groups.

    Or do you think, perhaps, the more action game nature of GW2 is causing you to stumble in dungeons?

    I mean no offense. I just find it odd that you seem to be having such a rough go at it. Esp. since so many players in the game are now old salts w/r/t GW2 dungeons these days.

    Still not sure if I am wearing socks that come up to my crotch in GW2...
    worth noting the gw2 char is wearing her heritage light armor (ie some skin you get through gw1 Hall of Monuments) which is not the standard starter gear.
    would still prefer gw2 mostly anyways but well.

    As Fencers said, you must be quite unlucky. The vast majority of dungeons I join go very smoothly.
    Although I have to say AC/CM/TA story modes make me die inside every time, they're so bad. Especially TA story, holy raptor jesus it's awful. It's like they were intentionally designed to scare away new players with their awfulness.

    HotW story and CoF story were ok, the super-nerfed Arah story is like watching a movie, and I actually loved CoE/SE story modes.

    Yes, yes we are. I made the mistake, apparently, of doing AC Story with my GS/Rifle 'zerk warrior and I spent more time face down in the dirt than actually playing. In fact, by the time we were done every piece of gear I had was damaged and at least 3 pieces were outright broken. I finally ended up switching to rifle full time in an attempt to curb the amount of deaths. My bf fared a little better on his thief, but he also stayed with shortbow the whole time and used his stealths liberally.

    CM Story & Exp. P2 weren't as bad, but I say that because I decided to take my 30 vitality/30 toughness elementalist with me. Ranged and very hard to kill. Since I was the most durable one there I spent quite a lot of time helping people up from downed state. My bf on his ranger decided to reenact my warrior's failures though. He had to fully replace his gear afterwards. :P

    I doubt it's the action nature of the game, it's more not knowing WTF is happening. Despite warning every group ahead of time that it was the first time for at least two people in the party no one offered any assistance other than to point out when we were doing something wrong (like the keg barrels in CM P2), which automatically made half of the bosses a "surprise". Our first of many wipes in AC Story was in the first room with all the caskets. All we were told is, "Don't interact with anything." Next thing I know a champion's running around one-shotting everyone. Yeah, thanks for the heads up there.

    Maybe we have been unlucky, but except for Arah Story (where interestingly enough we were all first timers) they have all been terrible experiences. I'm probably going to swear off dungeons forever now, especially since I wasn't that keen on doing them in the first place. :P I didn't expect anything in GW2 to be harder than what I've done in WoW, Rift, or Tera, but it has been so, so much worse. It definitely put me back on the "bring back the trinity" bandwagon for dungeons at least.

    had a few terrible pugs since launch, and most of the time, this usually were groups where people had no clue about what to do and barely even used their auto-attack and moving around without giving a damn about what was going on, occasionaly aggroing some adds or simply not bothering rezing anyone.

    while i did try to be patient at first, i just stopped wasting my time when facing such pugs and usually leave by the 15mn mark when that happens.

    bads are just bad one may say, no matter how overall easy the game is.

    Not sure what to tell ya, honestly. I personally don't find any of the dungeons difficult. Would be at a loss to explain any mechanics of the fights because there seemingly are none.

    "This boss does aoe, dodge out of it. If he chases you kite him away..." <- like virtually every fight in the game, imo.

    I play Warrior, Ranger, Mesmer and Guardian almost exclusively in melee. Think my Ranger's total deaths is like 38 total since the lifetime of the game. Warrior is like 60 or something last I checked, Guardian like 8.

    What I am getting at is that most damage is mitigated by constant movement in GW2. It's just like an Dark Souls-- stick and move, stick and move. If you are not moving you are dead usually.

    Will take your word for it that you are well versed and seasoned in twitch / action based gameplay. Could very well be the groups you are running with expect a certain level of familiarity with the dungeons. Ignoring your, "Hi, I'm new" messages. So it can only be the groups if what you say is true.

    Sorry you are having an unpleasant experience.

    Just finished HotW Story and it was also 'easy' (except for Lani), also with a group of all first timers. So, out of 5 dungeon runs (yes, finally got that damned monthly done) the results were: 2 of the highest level dungeons, all noobs, easy/best runs, 3 of the lowest level dungeons, players w/previous experience (except bf & I), difficult/terrible runs.

    When the game was first released I remarked that the story modes were often more difficult than the exploration modes. Also that the difficulty was in reverse. With Arah, COE, HOTW, etc being the easiest story/expos and the earlier AC, CM and Twilight whatever being the hardest story/expos.

    I haven't run a story mode since the release of the game. I assumed the dungeon rebalancing had taken care of that. Seems like that assumption was incorrect and the dungeons still follow the extremely poor QA and design Anet launched with for dungeons.


    Once you run every thing one or two times the dungeons are not really that bad/hard, Lane.

    The last time I did AC with friends we had 1 PUG with us and yet we cleared all 3 paths in just a short while. With like 1 person dying. And people hardly die in FTOM too. Like every dungeon in MMOs- it becomes auto pilot mode with practice.

    Don't get discouraged.

    I saw this on the forums. Looks promising. I never liked the camps farming in Cursed Shore, this looks a lot more varied and is (supposedly) more profitable to boot.

    I don't suppose anyone here already does this?
