I'm sorry but in what world is this casual friendly? I do ok in old world but like.. what is the point of paying for expansions if I can't even play them?

    sorry, but GW2 pissed me off today to the point of actual genuine anger at which point I closed the game, complained on the forums and deleted it from my harddrive because I do not play video games to be this stressed out. and yes I know heart of thorns is harder. I went back there first to finish unlocking a glider. immediately remembered why I quit the first time. but figured I'm this close to finishing that first leveling track, just hold out and get it done and then lets go to the new expansion that is supposed to be more casual friendly. the only thing that's casual friendly is doing the race around the desert (even if I don't get placed, at least its finishable) and multi part coin gathering event to get to kill a loot pinata which I've experienced running away at least once (yes there was a group killing it, not enough damage)

    anyways, I'm making myself annoyed all over again now, so.. not for me.
    not sure what gear you are trying to buy. but if gold isn't an option you can buy gear for karma(250k for a set) in Orr.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    I started playing serioulsy just two or three months ago, i have 100+ G and a mix of exotic and ascended gear.

    I didn't buy anything from TP - all is farmed. Weapon comes from elite spec unlock(exotic) accessiories come from laurels/season 3 farm (all ascended but one) and i just found today you can easily farm a full set of exotic armor in verdant brink for a total of 2500 "gears" and 5g.

    So it's just a matter of farming the right spots.

    Not that best gear helps that much - also woth moting that for open world/general use it's easier to go for nok-full offensive affixes cause you lose only a fraction of damage for quite a bunch of hp
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    I believe with the upcoming expansion end of this month you'll get a level 80 boost Just thought I'd throw it out there!
    I believe you have my stapler...

    I bought GW2 at launch, and didn't get very far. Tried to play again a few months ago and felt totally lost and just couldn't be bothered to try and figure everything out. Still have it installed though.

    Did you jump in with a level 80? Personally I think that is a bad call because the game never resets just expands. So jumping in at max is really overwhelming.

    However I think the easiest thing to do is wait until the upcoming End of Dragons expansion launch on Feb 28th. It seems to be the perfect spot for a fresh 80 to begin the game, you can get gliding and 2 of the games mounts in the new continent as well as some tutorial events. Anet are definitely building it for returning/new players as well as veterans.
    Currently to get gliding you need to go to the Heart of Thorns area/story and for mounts you have to go to the Path of Fire area/story. And while upgrading mounts and gliding will still require that, EoD is looking like the place to start your journey and get familiar with the game and its systems.

    No, I didn't realize that was an option, just picked up where I had left off. Thanks for the information, I'll wait and see then.

    If you buy the expansion it will come with a lvl 80 boost. My advice would be to use the boost mainly as a way to unlock mounts and gliding (you need a max level character for that). Once you have them unlocked any character from your account will be able to use them.

    I mention this because i believe that starting a new character can be helpful to understand the game in your situation, but sadly, the leveling process is one of the most outdated aspects of the game with mounts+gliding doing wonders in terms of making the whole thing more dynamic. The other benefit is that if you get bored from leveling, well... you'll also have your max level character ready to go.

    Good advice, I've been leveling a Revenant and being able to glide and mount up is a huge QoL gain.

    Not being excited to play the only current class/spec I have the gear to play at max level and not wanting to level another one or spend the money on gear to play it. Too many other games out there that I can just pick up and play that coming back to GW2 to suffer through the process of getting another character ready just isn't exciting, at all.

    i enjoyed it during covid lockdowns, but burnt out shortly after the massive grind I did for the legendary weapon Astralaria.

    I'll probably pick it up at some point in the future, but right now i'm really addicted to lost ark.

    If these are your complaints, GW2 isn't the game you played. Either that or you're lying...or possibly confused.

    Fairly sure they just saw the title in the "Recent Forum Posts" with the end of the title cut off and assumed it was about WoW.

    I originally bought GW2 around its release and played it quite a bit. Got bored rather quickly after I tried all the stuff I wanted to.

    At some point a few years ago I decided to check the game, logged in for ~30mins and then forgot about it.

    I recently decided to give a look at it again. It took quite an effort to log onto my account. Password had not been changed or anything, but it was saying I was logging from different location, basically city next to the one I was living at. I was able to log in once in attempt to change my email. It cannot be changed. Their account management system does not allow this. I would have to directly ask it to be changed after proving my identity, etc. Later I tried logging in again, now it was locked. To undo the lock, same thing would have to be done, contact directly and prove identity. No. I wont be doing that.

    I have no intention of making new account, which i understand is free? I have no doubts same thing would happen eventually. Everything I might have had previously was gone, not that it mattered since it was ancient stuff anyway. Yet, my interest was completely lost with its terrible account system.

    Otherwise, now having very little to play, I might even try their apparently new stuff. As it is, nope.
