    If you guys are lagging log out for 5 minutes and log back in it fixed my lag completely. Currently level 17 necromancer using staff as first weapon set and axe/warhorn second weapon set. Loving necromancer skills but I am extremely disappointed I can't be a Minion Master like in the first game.

    This is absolutely the worst beta communication I’ve ever seen – be it from Arenanet to Gamestop (or other retailers) and from Arenanet to their customer-base. It’s a false marketing scam when they are advertising pre-order (pre-purchase) entry into their beta and sending out e-mail inviting players to play, when in fact, they can’t play. The reply from a “Nick” from the Arenanet staff about the differences between Pre-order and Pre-Purchases (and how pre-orders don’t warrant access) is complete and utter bulls*it. I’ve never been so disrespected as a potential customer.

    Please, just because it’s an error on YOUR companies behalf doesn’t mean you need to pawn it off as if it was an error on MY (or other customer’s part). Fix the problem, apologize for the error, and save-face. I’ve been through enough betas in my time to know a poor release and a failed execution, this is so much so that it’s aggravating.

    On a side note, I have pre-purchased Tera and pre-purchase Guild Wars 2 to give it a shot this afternoon (Friday, April 27) in hopes that my time with it may pull me away from what would be my stay with Tera. Due to Tera’s offical head-start beginning tomorrow, you have now lost that chance. I will be cancelling my pre-order and hope that, sometime in the future, this company is able to restore faith to it’s player base.

    They clearly state PRE PURCHASE on their website so it is not their fault at all it is the consumers fault for not reading
    There is a huge difference for pre order and pre purchase. . People who pre purchase have faith in the games developers enough to pay the full price before it comes out. Only little kids had trouble figuring out the difference between pre order and pre purchase was it literally took me two seconds to realize the difference. Their communication is absolutely fine they are doing a fine job with the beta and even fixed some of the lag.

    How can you cancel your pre-order if you pre-purchased?....
    Not sure what you got...

    It's also the fault of the retailers for being intentionally mis-leading, while still technically sharing the correct information.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    I've seen no intentionally mis-leading information at all. It has all been very clear. Ppl are getting exactly what Anet said...compare it to the recent MoP beta.

    You think a retailer would be rather direct and ask their customers if they meant pre PURCHASE or pre ORDER, before completing the sale.

    LOL I tried to get the golem walking up the steps but it takes a second to process the screen shot for some reason. Anyway the golems have whole routines they go about during the night AND day.

    Anet spent an incredible amount of time polishing their cities. There is a pillar with writing on it in LA, the characters are individually distinct and light up at night.

    There wasn't a message coming up saying ur about to buy this which gives you this...but it was clearly stated in the build up...
    They very clearly stated what the differences are. The language wasn't overly complex or vague.
    I'm not a critical person at all by nature but if anyone just read the information very clearly provided they would have known instantly what they were getting.
    Just feel it's overly critical to think that the mere existance of two systems leads to justified criticism of Anet. Not saying that's what you said, but it seems to be the view of many. Ultimately, you get what you pay for...and if no one questions why they could pay less and get the same as those who pre-purchase....well. Plus, the information was right there in front of them...not like it was hidden in small text at the bottom of the page.

    Jelly factor 7, Scotty!
    Sounds awesome I saw the quote about Snaff earlier and I was just....wow, can't wait until end of May lol. Going to be devouring info later when I'm done with work.

    Want me to take a snap shot of the statue Eir built for Snaff in Holebrak? She has him standing next to Jora.

    Thought it was kinda awesome Eir would do that and give Snaff respect as a Norn.

    Click for high res.

    That is quite touching.
    I hope visiting the statues forms part of the personal story at some point...her coming to terms with Snaff's death and letting go of her perceived failure as a leader. And swearing vengeance and regaining resolve ofc, all nornesque.

    I seem to be the only one experiencing the glitch where I don't see any local chat at all. I can see whispers thats it don't know about anything else but I just dinged to 18 and im going to go to bed after 13 hours of continuous play.

  20. #19820
    There is an inscription you can read on those statues. I'll leave it up to you to read it.

    Okay, so I don't understand WvW. I zoned into WvW. It was just... um, a mini city with a bunch of Asura gates and merchants everywhere. I don't understand what I am suppose to do, who to speak to or where in the fucking hell I am.

    I don't get it.
