    I'd expect one last stress test middle of next week just to make sure the thing doesn't blow up on release.

And if not, can I use a software to do this (like Autohotkey) or is it bannable?
    I know that the mouse wheel is set to zoom in/out as default, and that it was indeed listed in the hotkey settings page, so binding the wheel to something else shouldn't be a problem as far as I can see. Not sure about the shift-modifier though, but I can't imagine it being a problem.

    Remember though, that you don't need nearly as many keys bound as in other MMO's. See http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Weap...st_five_skills for an explanation if you need it

    Small updates that are 50mb-ish and 8-12 files seem to have something to do with whatever they test in stress tests.

    Ok got a couple of general questions.

    1: I just got a new PC; gotta re-download the GW2 client, can someone provide me a link? I wanna believe there will be at least 1 more final stress test before the game goes live. I wont be able to officially join till mid-october so I wanna at least download the game to be ready to play when I do and just in case there is another stress test.

    2: In GW2 are there any major characters? I mean, one of the things that put me off big time on Lineage II was the overwhelming lack of any noticeable NPCs, like recurring protagonists, or main characters that we encounter on a regular basis. On wow, there's several major lore figures that either are important in the background, or we encounter on a regular basis in each expansion, and are names we easily recognize. Such a Hemet Nesigwary, Mankirk, Nazgrim, Thrall, Sylvannas, Jaina, Muradin, Varian, Anduin, ect.

    I was wondering if GW2 had such a group of recurring NPCs that we meet on a regular basis. OR if it is like Lineage II, where just about everyone is an unimportant irrelevant NPC that we never ever meet again.

    I think there are the npcs you ask for. Like Logan, Caithe, Eir, The asura one Zojja and Rytlock.

    One for each race, but I believe there is more like the queen and stuff. Since there is the personal story (which I think at some point you will be with all of them). But more than that I cannot confirm, but I would def think so.

    I'm starting to read the books of Guild Wars just now too.

    And I would think that the game will have other important npcs such as the ones that we see in GW1. I mean there is a reference for Nicholas The traveler and Professor Yakkington somewhere.

    There was Prince Rurik and stuff.

    thanks zil =) the link worked.

    I Just hope I can download the game before they do another test (I'm keeping my hopes up that there will be at least 1 more in the 10 days remaining till launch)

    Do they announce these test with any anticipation? or they just happen in the spur of the moment and if you didn't paid attention too bad?

    /vg/ isn't anything to worry about, their GW2 community is more vulgar-ists than trolls

    You can direct link the client, which means you don't need to log in, or even have an account to download it (Anet says it's fine)

    I think they usually warn 24h before give or take XD

    =( something weird is happening. I downloaded the client, I double-click it, it starts downloading something (Without even asking me where to install it) and when its about 10mb in, it shuts down and nothing else happens.

    Idk, could you try disabling it or the firewall or some other programs you may have opened and try it again? Maybe re-download the client somewhere else. Restart computer and so forth. XD
