You can set a key bind to stow and draw your weapons.
Sorry the story was easy. No issues here.
Necros get focused a lot in pvp and In open world necros are good and pretty fun but in raids necros are just okay. They are only wanted on a few fights.
It’s an elite specialization. If you equipped only elite specializations it would no longer be elite

I would get all your masteries completed. It’s up to 193 now. I would also finish the story if you haven’t already and maybe map complete any toons you want to play in pof. You could start your trek for legendary armor or work on any other legendaries you want. Maybe just farm gold so you have some saved when pof launches.
Welcome to spvp.
Sure hope that isn’t the new legendary hammer. It looks lame compared to juggernaut
What’s the point of having the option to decline the match when your que pops and you just get a dishonor for it? That makes no sense and is the absolutely silliest thing I have ever seen. PUNISHED FOR DECLINING A MATCH.
Well you said the game already knows when you load into the game. It however probably doesn’t know what your computer loads you in. The server updated but your computer is probably not fast enough. That’s my guess. You may be able to run the game just fine but if you have slow load times that’s probably because of your computer.
Yes revs aren’t really that popular in raids right now.They are only really taken on a few bosses if that. Ps warriors are always wanted. i would recommend warrior if you wanted to get into raids. But who knows next week abet could buff the bananas out of revs then everyone would want one. But as of right now I recommend warrior.
The devs have already said that this will not happen with legendary weapons and sigils.
1. Living seasons are basically content updates that are heavily story focused. The first one is free for everyone but the next 2 need to be bought if you aren’t actively
Playing when they go live because they only are active for so long (if I’m not mistaken not entirely sure so don’t take my word for it). They are end game content but not all the game has to offer. Dungeons, raids, fractals( harder dungeons), wvw. Server vs server Pvp and regular pvp. Normal pvp can be accessed at any level since gear stats are equalized but wvw gear matters.
2. I would say the community is very healthy. Lots of friendly players everywhere and yes not so nice players but mainly nice players. People are constantly
Re rolling Alts due to various reasons but the core gw2 maps are not always filled up but there are people in every map for sure and if you get stuck you can ask in map chat and typically people come help. Pleanty of guilds are looking for new players, never pay to join a guild tho, it’s a scam. And another thing gw2 system is different compared to wow by the fact everyone gets credit for tagging a mob and doing the same bosses and or events and ou get your own personally loot and experience which is nice.
3. Yes there are a bunch. Metabatlle.com is one I remember off the top of my head. There are a lot more than you could ask around for search on google. There is a wiki about everything in gw2 that explains stuff and has guides but for build guides metabattle is what you want.
4. Guardian is a solid class over all. I never play it but I know it’s good I’m wvw and it’s somewhat used it raids but it’s not overly popular. But as long as your build is meta you should have no problems. Guardian has serval build set ups as well.
5 END GAME- the main end game stuff is raids/ fractals I would say. Those are the really challenging content and if you want to regularly clear and get kills being in a guild would be extremely helpful because LFG ISNT BAD it’s not as easy as wow. You can get groups through lfg but being with a group of people you know is much more likely to do well than with 5 ransoms even though sometimes you get all good ransoms and you have no issues. Gear wise for end game you need ascended/legendary gear. They have the same stats as each other yet legendary gear have a really cool skin and the ability to stat change your gear to anything you want. Ascended gear only has 1 stat choice and it’s the choice you
Pick when you craft it or buy it. You can craft or buy ascended gear however it’s expensive and does take a while. It’s. It not going to happen over night. Unless you had a lot of gold then it will take you a while depending on how much you
Play. Legendary gear can only be crafted and it takes a while and is a bit Grindy. If you have lots of gold then it can definitely speed up everything since you can skip most of material grinding and just buy them but as a new player getting gold starts off slow till you figure out how to make it. There are pleanty of guides for ascended gear/legendary/and gold making on YouTube. Make sure the video is within recent times because that video may no longer apply.
Requirements, these very but ascended gear will be o good to have
Hope this helped
Yes in the settings. There is a key binding section and you can change everything to your hearts desire.
I rather enjoy the crafting system and way you farm materials in this game. It simple and easy. There are very little restrictions when it comes to farming unlike other games, where you NEED to be a specific profession or whatever and in gw2 you
Got to go back to lower zones because only certain areas have certain drops, it’s rather nice. Crafting is fast and easy and rewards you greatly. You can go from 0 to 80 crafting alone. ( at least you used to. Idk if they changed it). as for your emptiness while you play, you probably need to look outside your computer to fix that issue you are having and not look to video games to try to fill that void because it won’t work.
SAME SAME SAME SAME SAME SAME
Imagine fights between the players with gliders and players without. Just is not fair. The ones without would call it pay-to-win game mode.
players that are gliding can’t attack while gliding? the players that on the ground can attack the gliding players, but not the other way around, the gliding would bring more tactics and ambush possibilities and out plays

i play in California and if my ping spikes above 200 ping my glider opens 3 to 5 seconds late or doesn’t open at all and i go splat and it is extremely frustrating,
please not this is my opinion of the HOT expantion
PROS of the new content HOT gave us
-The maps look AMAZING, i tip my hat to Anet for making these maps look fantastic, its really makes the new zones that much more enjoyable to play
-The new maps also sound great, the sound track is super fresh and entertaining to listen to and there new system to adjust when you leave combat is really nice.
-events on the new map and really well thought out and well done and play smoothly that also lead into more and more events or potentially a world boss
-Raids, finally really challenging content we have been asking for
- Masters are pretty neat new system giving loads of new features( gliding!, mushroom jumping etc) and reason to play pve for a change
-Guild halls and Elite specs
- Strong hold ( map looks great) and elite specs add a new change to the game making it fun and fresh
-the new Border lands and features that weren’t in the system in the old wvw map
CONS about the new content
-New maps get old and stale and extremely grindy while trying to get these masterys done, it takes a long time to complete masterys past the 3rd tier in each category which makes the maps feel boring and old after a while no matter how pretty they look or well thought out.
-the rewards are garbage, after 1 month of game-play with HOT i have gotten 3 exotic drops, i mean exotics aren’t all that, but that just shows they extremely lowered drop rates from where they were which was pretty low to begin with. whats the point of grinding these new maps if the rewards really aren’t worth while? i can get more rewards from pvp
-Anet said they didn’t want to force players into doing things or certain content they didn’t want to do when clearly you do with these collections requiring certain adventures to be completed with a certain score, and not all these adventures are available at all times which requires players to do events to unlock them, and a lot of the times maps are really dead which is a problem, collections also force you into all 3 game modes and some players only like 1 or 2 of these respective modes, making doing one they may not like frustrating.
-Fractals, i feel anet lied completely about fractals, saying they reworked fractals completely and have made it truly end game content and much harder than ever before?
the reason why fractals are harder is not because of some new mechanic added to the game but by upping bosses hp from 1 million to 10 million hp and increasing toughness! the reason why its hard is because players are fighting the urge of falling asleep. Not because they added new mechanics such as having bosses be invulnerable for a while till you do a certain objective like in the new HOT maps world bosses but on a smaller scale. Its just harder because they passed out while they were pressing 1 for who knows how long and ended up falling asleep.
-Fractals rewards went from and steady income for some people and fun rewarding RNG drop (if you got lucky) to a complete money sink and slap in the face and waste of time (NOW they said they are fixing rewards so lets hope for the best)
-Dungeons received a reward nerf and it was supposed to go to fractals, but they said they would fix the rewards so i wont list anything more on dungeons
- no new maps, we got a new game mode stronghold, a cheap LOL knock off, or down sized wvw map, whatever you want to call it, but no new pvp maps? why..
- leagues wont have solo que option, (IDK IF THIS ONE IS TRUE but i have heard it more than once and would not be surprised tbh) which allows full pre-mades to be paired with randoms which is extremely 1 sides games now it doesn’t happen too often but it does happen! there’s no reason why there shouldn’t be separate ques for team play and solo or duo play. especially when other f2p games have separate ques for team and solo/quo play
-Anets response to afkers or leaver is putting this dishonor system that doesn’t work at all… if a person rage quits or leaves they probably don’t have an intention on coming back anytime soon,and the time gate stats from when they left!!! so if they go take a break or just stop playing all together there’s no punishment when they try to que again if they just wait the time gate out rather than have it go into effect next time the actually que up like other games do, the punishment starts when you que up next, not when you leave. makes 0 sense.
-anet also punishes parties that have someone who misses a que POP, some ques can be from a 1 minute wait to a 15 mintue wait, so if the door happens to ring and while you are answering the door the que pops and you miss it Anet says HAHA you and your party needs to wait 5 minutes before you can que again? makes absolutely no sense
- why on earth does anet charge 10 gold each for the new amulets and 5 gold each for the new runes? we paid 50 bucks for this expansion why are you charging 200 gold to unlock all the runes and amulets essentially or an extra 20 bucks just for amulets and runes that are expansion specific? come on..
- NO NEW PVP MAPS WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ( i am not sure if they are releasing any with leagues but i haven’t heard anyhting which is why its on the cons list)
- why is there isn’t a report for afking? now with this dishonor people just sit in base afk, why can’t we report these players??
now i don’t play wvw at all because it dont personally enjoy zering around and having my fps take a giant poop all the time butill list the things i have heard.
- maps are clearly meant to have gliding but don’t for whatever reason, and ill be honest i did jump to my death my first time exploring that amazing new map thinking i could fly around it, and having no glider made me extremely disappointed.
- player population is extremely low on a lot of severs
- map frowns about big groups but wants you to have small teams of groups running around, or something similar to that.
i know there is abunch more of stuff with wvw that can be said good and bad and also guys i really do enjoy gw2 and this is why i wanted to say what i think are the pros and cons, i think anet has a great game in the making i just had to list what i thought went wrong and maybe they fix it and also to see if others agree
(edited by TheMightyNewb.6789)
First i know HOT has been out for a month or so now and and im sure people have already asked but i personally feel like this new border lands was or had the intent of using the new glider system. I feel like as i roam i get to loads of areas with tons of canyons or areas that clearly look as if it was meant to be glided. i just feel like Anet changed there mind last second. I have heard that it was because they didn’t want to feel non- HOT players to be left out? but i feel like if we had our gliders on the new map it would give non- Hot players more incentive to buy the new expansion. It also would be way more entertaining to play since they are so freaking big it takes forever to get around. and the gliding system is for sure one of the best additions to the game. if anyone knows why there is no gliding on the new WvW maps i would love to know.
Let’s start with the mesmer portals: It might feel a little unfair that people “exploit” this skill to get to mastery gated or otherwise hard to reach places, but honestly this has been happening for ages with jumping puzzles and it is just how it is, let the scrubs who can’t be bothered to actually work for their own success be.
Secondly I realize that CoF farming in central tyria is an idiotic exploit that could be easily fixed, but honestly that isn’t going to happen. The spider farm however was nerfed considerably. Do note however that using these exp farms to gather mastery exp people are missing out on loot for that playtime and getting immensely bored while doing so, generally I think that there is something a little bit off in their heads if they can be bothered to do so. However getting the mastery exp isn’t that hard the regular, more interesting, way. Trust me on this, I’m currently sittin on 98 mastery rank and I have not used either of these farms to get there, I have however become very rich ingame and completed collections via events and such while getting there.
Finally I must say that you should try and adapt to the philosophy of playing for yourself and not for the acceptance, or whatever, of randoms from the internet, you’ll surely feel more accomplished for working hard to earn what you have rather than to cheat your way through.
I am very Glad to see that they nerfed the spider farm exploit but my attitude is fine, i was just trying to be as polite as possible. and Jumping puzzles are not the same as gaining masterys to unlock or reach certain areas of the map in order to progress. jumping puzzles are a nice addition to the game that has nothing to do with really progressing in the game, ok i’m not 100 percent sure on that, but i am pretty sure. i know there is like a bunch of very small jumping puzzles to gain vistas for map completion but other than that i can’t really say that jumping puzzles are pretty much required like masterys are in the new maps. i just think there is a big difference between porting for a jumping puzzle and on the new maps.
I 100 agree in full, they told us that this new system was for players that didn’t have the luck or the money to acquire a pre-cursor weapon. Yet it requires the same if not more money plus extra time gated stuff to acquire these new pre-cursors, its extremely disappointing to have Anet false advertise so to speak, if it wasn’t for a friend of mine that told me it was a gold sink, i would be right where you are my friend because i was looking forward to this new system but however now i am 100 percent completely avoiding it. like Why could Anet have had 4 collections for each precursor, and when you complete each collection you get 1 item out of 4 to put into the Mystic Forge to then craft the weapon. that makes way more sense to me anyways
Instead of playing countless hours of the game you should have been practicing the fine art of using paragraphs. If you fix it up I’ll read your complaint.
i tried to make some paragraphs but its confusing in that little tiny box, and i know i got some grammar errors but like i that tiny box was over whelming and it also removed some of skipped lines i did. sorry i tried
