    All my friends who tried it said it sucks and quit after a few hours.

    Most of my friends are currently back to playing WoW. I am sure that once content drought hits WoW again, I'll be back to farming for Aurora again.

    If you call playing it from launch on and off until Heart of Thorns, almost 3 years of time between the two "two weeks" sure

    Eh. That's just Pacox and Rog mate. Those 2 are basically this sub forums defenders with their shit tier "if it's not critique I like then fuck it" attitude.

    Best to ignore and leave them be. Thankfully they aren't any representation of the good community GW2 actually has.

    I never started. Frankly, the day NCSoft killed off City of Heroes, I decided that I would never play a game under their company ever again.

    Partially because I outright hate them for what they did to the game (shutting it down is understandable, however the way they handled it is an atrocity, and on top of that they go out of their way to ensure private servers for theri dead games never see the light of day for unfathomable reasons. I won't derail the thread with too many details).

    And partially because they have killed off so many fairly successful MMORPGs on a whim for reasons I cannot begin to understand. This means that any game they host is on borrowed time; none of my progress will count in the long term.

    Besides, I am quite content with two MMORPGs, and I do not need to hop into a third. Guild Wars 2, for what it is, doesn't seem like a bad game, but I don't see myself ever getting into it.

    It's not a bad game. Has it's issues.

    Gear treadmill ends once you got the BiS set for your build.

    Lootbox mount skins. Least there is a specific option for it though.

    Some map events are just boooooooooring. Centaur one springs immediately to mind.

    Transmog/Glamour system requires an item like FF14 which is stupid.

    But yeah it has it's issues. But overall definitely a solid MMO out of the current market. I just don't have the time to dedicate to it either with 2 MMOs.

    Yeah I've heard interesting things about it, and like you I don't want to dedicate time to a third MMORPG.

    I don't have an issue with glamour/transmog requiring items to use, though; frankly I'd be happy that the system existed regardless, unless the items were stupidly expensive. FFXIV didn't have that issue in the past (they were moderately priced, but not ridiculous, now they are super cheap), and it doesn't have it now.

    No open world PvP, floaty combat without any real oomph, cheesy storylines and dialogue, poor music.

    Game has changed with both expansions (CM fractals, raids, masteries, elite specs, legendary armor, several new SW-style metas), so your opinion about PvE based on vanilla GW2 is certainly very dated.

    I didn't even respond him until now. Also good irony, considering how you are defending every aspect of FFXIV.

    FF14's are piss easy to come buy. Dispellers you just get from a vendor, the Prisms are crafted with Clear ones and Silver. Silver is like a 25-30 crafter/gatherer item.

    I think it's a lot better in FF14 since it's one universal Prism now rather than specific crafting ones like needing a Woodworking one to glamour over a Bow or stupid shit like that.

    GW2s are easy to come by since you get them from login rewards and are account wide but eh. Both games are just as shit at handling that aspect of their glamour system.

    FF14's needs an overhaul stat. Should be like WoWs and be like 1000 gil per item or something.

    Yeah can't say there's a specific piece of music that sticks out for me in this game. Zone ones are very generic.

    Fear Not this Night is quite good but that's about it.

    Actually FF14 is even easier than that now. There are seven ways to craft them, and 3/7 of the items to craft prisms are literally bought at a vendor now IIRC (and one or two more of them is crafted with vendor bought items). Undyed Velveteen is the cheapest, but crystal prices may make other alternatives better. The vendor materials for prisms are bought from beast tribes, but they can be unlocked immediately. The prisms you craft with silver are probably the most expensive and tedious versions you can make.

    In fact their new glamour dresser system makes it so you can put an item inside of it, then apply them for free from then on, with the exception of having to go to an inn any time you want to adjust one of your 10 sets (the dresser itself holds up to 200 unique items as well accessing as any from armoire). The prisms also are craftable at level 20, I believe. They rarely go above 1,000 gil these days so it's probably cheaper than WoW now. The main drawback is that the 'glamour plates' can only be accessed in rest areas, though prisms continue to be able to be used directly anywhere.

    My main issue with prisms on FFXIV was that they had 5 grades and 7 types, leading to a grand total of 35 different prisms. Eventually they reduced that to 7 types, and then at long last reduced it to 1 type fits all. Honestly I'd say they are in really good shape now. Glamour dresser isn't complete yet and could use some additional features, but I'd argue it's almost as good as WoW's transmog now, though very different. I'm certainly a fan of not being directly restricted by armor types in most cases, ha!

    But hell, I am digressing badly on FFXIV when this is a thread about Guild Wars 2. My bad all, please disregard this.

    That is not at all the case, and the fact that you point to this as a reason tells me you haven't ever played it.

    Every 2-3 months an update hits, which usually adds a new legendary weapon, a new chapter of story content, and a new zone.
