    They still miss PvE DEs and some Personal Story, no? Unless by "missing out" you mean "gear".

    Also: dungeons.

    If they're not interested in any of that, they're not missing out on anything.

    You will gain exp and loot during wvw so you can level up in WvW all the way to 80.
    Items and gold can be looted from players so if you die you will have to repair, but you will also be earning currency to offset those repair costs. You will not be looting actual items from enemy inventory, rather getting drops from a loot table like you would from a mob.
    The same loot you get from killing mobs. I’ve gotten quite a few rare drops from players in the beta already
    When you kill someone you get gold or even sometimes items.
    Our goal is for the rate of XP, and loot gain to be similar in WvW and PvE. It will never be exactly the same but it should be close enough that you don’t feel disadvantaged by playing one vs the other.

    No missing out because they can always go back and participate in the content scaled down

    Nah, you get cash and items in PVP roughly equal to PVE. Also if they want to do PVE DE, dungeons and so on- they can go PVE at their leisure. PVE DEs happen in WvW too.

    Edit: Or Grandpab already covered it. Sigh. I am sorta doing a million things at once today.

    I love beauty (by definition?)...and I also love "the game".

    Sometimes they come together...sometimes they don't...if "a game" had *only* beauty then it wouldn't be "the game" - I have never bought a game because it promised to give me a beauty experience...but I do enjoy the beauty experiences of games.

    If a "game" was *just* a beauty experience...would it be a game?

    Depends on your definition of "game"...but I think so.

    Most important part of the message imo.

    I'm thinkin' of actually having my second or third character be the same race as one of the prior ones and having them be mostly a WvW character. As for class...I have no freakin' clue. Engineer and Necromancer both sound pretty sweet for both small and large-scale PvP shenanigans.
    Rogues = adventures :-) That's why they've called "rogues" :-)

    Ooooh, the engineer looks like fun and total mayhem!

    For PvP, I love tricky and slippery...I wanna mess with your head, I wanna give you a hard time...

    Well, yeah - but...that's not missing out.

    I mean...if I go to a restaurant and order steak, and love it...I'm not missing out on the other things on the menu. I'm just making a decision about what I want to eat...and I enjoy my time there.

    People can choose for themselves what experiences they want to have...and do what they place most value on.

    If they logged on to the game and were bored - but refused to try new, recommended, things...that could be missing out - which is to say, there is an experience you could be having that agrees with you more...

    Does that make sense?

    It's very tempting indeed...

    Will you be able to get skill points when you level (As in do you get like 1 point per level in addition to challenges)? that would be the only thing that stops me from leveling purely in it. I want to have all my utilities as son as possible.

    Just a random thought, I hope those beluga-whale looking guys will be playable in the future.

    What rascals!

    I want to play *now*!

    So it seems to me, it starts 7pm London time...and ends, I don't know, 7am Monday morning...so I need to take Monday off work...

    But hang on...we're on BST not GMT....so that means replace all 7's with 8's....

    Got it....

    IMO, stock up on 5 hour energy, and call in late to work if your job starts too soon to get there on time after servers shut down at 8am.


    Then again, I found nothing has any effect once you've been awake for a certain number of hours...

    I'll be fine...I can kinda come and go as I please...I'll do a work-at-home or just take the day...my leave year resets in a few weeks anyway and I was saving a few for pure gaming weekends...whatever, I'm sorted.

    Yes, you get one skill point each level from level 5 and onwards.

    I just got a reminder to register my account - which I already have. Did anyone else get this?
