My character is a massive kittenbag.
The choices you make with either player creation or the personal story don’t really have a meaningful effect. I won’t ruin anything with specifics, but you wanted to know before going further. You’ll have to use your imagination somewhat if you want to have your character feel like a unique and personal character. GW2 is an mmo first and foremost, an rpg a distant second.
You could start over, but I can’t tell you that you won’t get frustrated with it again. You’re not given much choice that veers even a little outside the main story arc, it’s a linear campaign. But I think that was intentional, it’s not a sandbox game after all.
I troll because I care
I’ve played all three human backgrounds and the ruffian is by far the most jarring when it comes to Logan. In the nobility you’re already friends with the Seraph, and as a commoner the Seraph are respected, but you’d expect the ruffian to have a distaste for the law. Instead, the character does just as you say, practically jumping at the bit to help them. It bothered me too.
Try rerolling as nobility or commoner. I didn’t have any trouble with either of those.
Just be a female sylvari and try to catch all the missions about love stories, betrayal and good people doing bad things.
I promise you, you’ll have that “connection” what you are looking for, maybe stronger than what’s healthy. kitten I can’t reroll to any class, even if ANet keeps destroying thieves every patch. It’s still so much fun, and I belived that’s why. But nah. I couldn’t play any other thief, only my first character. Every time I spend laurels or gold on my alts I feel like it’s a waste because I could have spend it on her instead. Too bad I already have the looks I want, the full exotic berserker gear with full ascended trinkets… I don’t know where to process. I started doing fractals somedays but it’s already boring because it feels grindy. So doing random dungeons until something actually worthy update lands. Something that’s an UPGRADE to the game systems, not just a “grind the kitten out of your brain every day for a few months for this small stat bonus”. Hell no. Not even once that’s gonna happen. Not why I bought GW2 for.
Wooooah. Guess my thoughts are out of control. I should stop here.
and that’s why SWToR is superior in every way in terms of quests, you have allot more control about what you’re about to say and you can be as kitten or goody good as you want to be.
Isnt the reason she snitches because she 1. Left the gang so no real loyalty anyway
2. Wants to save the friend
3. Knows TwoBlade Pete is a kitten whos gonna pull something bad (he will btw)
