Gear makes a huge difference in this game. And PAX Romana is everywhere to be found, i have more than i can spend having done all missions so far, no dungeons ,no pvp.

    As per some poster suggested, on sunday ill be mostly free, if you wanna ill help you breeze through the Blue Mountains. I can migrate temporarely to your server or vice versa.
    I already use the AH in London lol. And to be honest, with fists you can move seamlessly and not wait for regen if you take the right mix of healing, but it takes a little too long for my tastes to kill things. thought the sword/fist build would increase that, but it seemed to be just as slow except now I have large downtime between fights and pulling more than one thing is almost guaranteed death now.

    I don't expect to be some all powerful god, but not being able to pull 2 mobs, or one and then another one immediately without having to use potions, run in crazy ass circles nonstop, and basically crossing your fingers is not fun gameplay to me. Everyone keeps saying it's Blue Mountain, but idk.

    I appreciate the offers on BM, but I'm working overtime at the office all weekend. Which brings me to another question, that I think I know the answer to, but wanted to clarify.

    Once my 'subscription' runs out, what am I losing other than a discount in the cash shop? Anything vital to gameplay?

    That refreshment thingy that gave you twice the XP for kills during 1 hour i think. Other than that , nothing i think. That i have noticed . Which is good. (I'm not subbed).

    There's food in the game to fix downtime between fights, takes you up to full health in a matter of seconds (as long as you're out of combat). Tacos from the haitian market in London is the classic, but there's plenty more now.

    What are good combos to use in the game?

    I've not played for a while but thinking about coming back, my current combo was pistols and sword (I had unlocked the equipment thing, forgotten what it is called), however I think I made a mistake going for that combo.

    My preferred combo would be good dps and some healing.

    I picked up a Shotgun the other day and have been fiddling with a "Deck" to incorporate it with my Elementalism. I really like it, and combat is actually a lot more fun than I was originally led to believe. I think part of that fun is having so much control of your abilities and build. I'm still working on my build though. I've started putting points into one of the Misc Wheels in order to get a self-heal. Am I right and assuming that those Wheels are more for rounding out your role as a DPS, Tank, or Healer?

    Actually i think its more like CC, Tanking or Healer. But your assumption is otherwise right.

    Is there a trial yet? I'd love to buy the game but want to make sure I'd enjoy it before doing so.

    I run an elementalism and shotgun build that focuses on afflicted status. Later in the game though, you'll need to keep an eye on buffs on the mobs like "deals 25% more damage while in afflicted state" and "100% chance to critically strike while in afflicted state." Think of anything after Scorched Desert as "endgame" questing, because of a lot of it is tough; it'll give you good practice for moving into elite and nightmare dungeons.

    I seriously don't see the alure of virtual pets. I played WoW for like 4 years and i had like 60 at most , from quests, random drops etc. When i stopped playing wow there was achievs for 100+. I play GW2 since launch and i have yet to acquire a single pet. In this game i honestly even deleted the Ak'ab mini pet i got with the end of the world event back in December. Bag space is worth more to me than some pet. xD just me tho

    Good thing I just touched down in The Savage Coast. Things are still relatively "easy". =)

    Don't get me wrong, you'll probably love Egypt. As long as you stay up to date with gear and have a fairly solid build, you should be just fine. I remember my friend running the Templars' paladin deck starting in Blue Mountain and he destroyed pretty much everything he came across.

    One thing I found out last night that bummed me out was that I couldn't purchase a dress shirt & tie in London. Apparently that is only offered in the cash shop. =(

    Do you really want your character to have a cheap suit?

    My build? You've probably found your own build by now, but now I'm mostly curious just in general :P

    Did you use it with +crit and +heal? I tried I myself, and I wasn't very impressed, sadly to say. I modified it by adding Immortal Spirit and some other abilities to make it actually proc: http://www.tsw-builder.com/#13v11130...10366310130353

    It's more complicated, as you need to maintain 5 stacks of penetration chance with Blade Torrent as well as keeping up Healing Sparks with Prey on the Weak, but it's also more flexible with both an aoe and a single target builder. Downtime is eliminated by Surgical Steel all by itself - melee consumers stack up to max resources almost immediatly out of combat, you can spam Surgical Steel and get back to max in around 5 seconds.

    Gave it a whirl in the Carpatian Fangs (last zone), downed two sets of two werewolves at a time without problems. Took it down into the roman baths with the nightmare zombies, and it can't quite handle two mobs or use the fist damage consumer at all, but otherwise it was fine. (My gear is green QL10 fwiw, no blues.)

    No one can make that decision except you.
