The developers of Guild Wars 2 have managed to create an MMORPG that is a truly social experience – Practically every aspect of the game rewards you for working with other players. See someone dead or about to be out in the field? Help them out and gain experience for doing so. All classes have the ability to revive other players and NPCs within the game. Need to kill a monster, but someone else is already killing it? No problem! Just help the person already in combat, and you both get experience, and both get your own loot. No kill stealing or monster hoarding needed! This mechanic is in place even if you aren’t in a party together. Want to gather materials on the map, like ore from mining nodes? No worries here either! All ore nodes are player-specific, so even if someone else has just come along and mind that node you wanted, you can too! GW2’s “Dynamic Event” system is also geared towards cooperation between players, with a large variety of events, … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Is It The Best MMORPG Social Experience?
Date: 06-12-2012 Views: loading Comment: loading... Have you ever thought that you can level up your character to the max level by just crafting? It sounds impossible because crafting seems just an add-on profession in most MMOs. Well, it now can be achieved in Guild Wars 2 as ArenaNet designer Linsey Murdock stated in a recent forum post, players will be able to level it all the way to 80 without killing a thing but crafting. According to Murdock, it works like this: "For leveling a discipline from 0-400, you will gain 10 levels along the way. By maxing out all 8 disciplines, you will gain 80 levels. That means you could dedicate a character to crafting, feed it all the mats you get on other characters and level it all the way to 80 without ever needing to kill a thing. As hardcore crafters, we think that is pretty cool." Many players shared their concern about that. Some players thought this will turn Guild Wars 2 into a P2W game since players can pay real money for gems and … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: You Can Level up to 80 without Killing a Thing
Get Guild Wars 2 Path of FireIf you try to zoom into Guild Wars 2’s Super Adventure Box today, you’re… going to be wholly disappointed. That’s because while the patch notes and associated updates are live today, SAB itself doesn’t open up until Thursday, in spite of the fact that my kid is on spring break all week and we really need SAB right now ArenaNet! According to the patch notes, we’re getting a new SAB-themed race, new achievements, and a whole bunch of bug fixes and quality-of-life adjustments (yay, no more giant cutscene for the first map). The devs have given all classes a hefty balance patch too. And of course, there are new goodies on the Moto vendor already, including new buff food and a bauble node for home instances. Also worth pointing out are some new bits in the cash shop today: returning themed items like bunny ears (naturally), but also an “Istani Isles Mount Select License” for 1200 gems – that allows you to … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 preps Super Adventure Box, patches in direct-buy mounts and CHAIRS
Last month Arenanet held a Guild Wars 2 campaign called Friend/Ships, asking players to send in their stories of forming friendly relationships in the popular MMO. The campaign brought in tons of stories from gamers who made new friends and even some who went on to tie the knot. This week I managed to get in touch with Elisabeth Cardy from Arenanet for a quick Q&A regarding the Friend/Ships campaign. Let’s see how it went. Q. How did the name “Friend/Ships” for the campaign come about? Elisabeth Cardy: When we first started brainstorming around this campaign, it was based on stories we’d heard of people who had met their significant other in game, but we really wanted to recognize that it’s not just romantic relationships that can have a deep impact on our lives. To that end, we were looking for a title that encompassed relationships of all sorts. Especially in English, the word “relationship” can have some hefty connotations of romance, so … [Read more...] about Arenanet Talks: Guild Wars 2 Friend/Ship Campaign
