    I'm interested in this as well! Any recommendations are welcome

    They've admitted a few bugs and kinks in the system over Twitter. From the sound of things, they've got a surprise worked up. Depends on how big/small it is, of course.

    Anyone heard anything about Capes/Cloaks/Back items?
    Are there supposed to be Capes in the game? If so, why aren't there any?*

    *except for the two you get from your PS... but those wont show up on your char

    Guild Backpacks apparently are out there and cost 5g a piece (for slightly better stats than the 76 one from personal story).

    As far as if they're visible, not sure, have better things to be spending my gold on at the moment.

    The guild backpacks are visible (but can be toggled off), they just look like a backpack with the guild emblem on them. The stats are literally like +2 or 3 better than the one from the personal story though so it's probably about the most minor upgrade you can get for 5g.

    Yeah, they are definitely working on a holiday event. For the 10/28 patch ArenaNet said they there will be a "GW1-style token system so you can choose a better reward item when you complete the personal story" and retroactive rewards if you've already finished the personal story. It's in this forum post.

    Since I haven't played GW1, what was their token system like?

    Also, here's a delicious looking recipe for a Chocolate Omnomberry Cake.

    Anyone else saddened by all the negative posts?

    I can't understand half of them otherwise it's "there's no raids so no endgame" ugh. At least I'm enjoying my time still, I'm never rushing and still have tons to do.

    Also I'm happy for that blog from Arena Net, they are setting high goals, let's hope they get get something substantial by the end of November.

    Tokens were used in the final mission (mostly) for each campaign, and you got exactly a single one per character, tradeable for a weapon of your choice. There were (a lot) of other tokens used for purchasing items, the others mostly being farmable

    You seem to imply that people who "have nothing to do" are to blame themselves due to rushing, I very much disagree on this. I've chosen one toon to play the game through first so I've got 100% map completion with all the leftover skillpoints I got my 2exo weapons, with the money from completing everything I bought my exo armor. I then started doing dungeons (1full explo/day) so about 4h of play for 8days.

    That's hardly rushing and there really isn't that much more to do (on my first toon), so personally I'd love some more dungeons or things like SF/FOW/UW/Deep/...

    My view of rushing is pretty much what you did, there lies the problem, I've played this game for about 150 hrs and I only have 50% map completion on my main. I honestly take my time when I say I take my time, I enjoy the sights and play very thoughtfully, I do what I want to do not what I "have" to do. Sometimes I wonder if people can truly enjoy a game anymore or if they are just so competitive they can't slow down.

    Look, no hard feelings about it I just don't see that as taking your time.

    Negative people are the most vocal. Don't give any importance to them. Especially since most of them don't even play the game. They often feel the necessity to bash GW2, out of fear or some misplaced sense of loyalty to their current mmo.

    The positive are mostly in game and sporadically post on these fora, as I do.

    not taking it slow doesn't mean you're rushing... If I drive in 2nd gear I'm taking it slow if I drive in 4th I'm playing normally and when I'm in 6th that's when I'm rushing.

    Also those are the "gears" for me, for all we know your gears are 1-2-3

    You come across as very condesending towards ppl who simply are faster than you (kinda like the "try hard" stuff in FPS games)
    Everything you say implies that I (and others who play at a faster pace than you) don't enjoy the sights, don't play thoughtfully and did things they didn't want to do but had to do. You also imply we "can't enjoy a game anymore".

    More annoyed that saddened. Most of them just sound like "Waaaa, waaa, waaa, me, me, me"

    Guessing it's the same kind of crowd that cries about all games. Huge rush to get to top level without even doing most of the content and then running to the forums to cry as loudly as they can. Just bleh.... Anyways I try not to read those posts anymore.

    I even noticed one poster from this forum who has been bashing GW2 ever since BW2 (and praising wow) actually bought GW2 and now continues to cry on their forums.... Go figure.

    I hardly ever post and I love the game

    1) The funny thing is that it's not even the complainers that bring up raiding, it's always the fanboys that throw out the same old stuff. Raiding, carrot on a stick, loot treadmill, WoW, Skinner Box, etc. It's why the discussions on the topic turn into a mess really fast, even though there's plenty of people like me that actually enjoy the game, and doesn't want it to be a WoW-clnone, but would just like to see some content that doesn't fall over just because someone looked at it.

    2) The whole "rushing" thing is silly. You level at such a high rate of speed in this game that unless you purposefully just sit somewhere and AFK or something, you'll be 80 pretty fast. Hell, my wife is about the least focused, non-rushing player I could imagine and her Ranger already hit 80, too. Here's a woman who typically gets 100% completion in every zone, hunts for all the puzzles and stuff, gets lost and goes in circles a lot because the map "isn't as much fun" and took all day to get from Lion's Arch to Orr because she was perpetually distracted. But it's tough to NOT level with the way the system works, so saying that people must be rushing so it's their fault just seems silly.

    I'm really not sure whats considered rushing anymore, but I made it to 80 on my main during a course of 12 days with 96hrs played, don't know if I was rushing or not was just doing zone completion, basically not sure if that's fast or slow.

    The problem is that people keep tossing the term around as if it's a scientifically measured and determined value. When we really get down to it, what "rushing" means when talking about games is simply "finishing the game quicker than I did/would", and even then "finishing" is a vague term these days unless we're talking about a hallway game.

    Well I personally wouldn't considered myself finished with the game, just restarted on a new main and I'm having a lot of fun again. I feel I should tell the bored people though, you technically own the game step away for a while go play some other games and come back when you want to no one should limit themselves to just one game of course you would get bored, hell I would no matter how much I enjoy it.
