drops pretty good afaik. Just remember to take only 1/2 of the enemies at once, you get better drops like that.

But farming there is not worth it no matter how you look at it.

If you can get it for cheap go for it. GW 2 comes out this fall and your character won't be transferable so it's up to you.

GW2 most definitely is not coming out this fall. Beta will be coming out this year and the game will come out next year. What part of next year will be determined from the results of this years public beta (they are current in 2nd stage beta - friends and family).

Sorry man. I'm in the process of setting up the new rig. Building it only took 2 days but setting it up and transferring from the old PC is a killer.

Guild wars is a Different kind of MMO. Unless things have change over the years you dont run around on a massive map with everyone else (WoW) You create a party and head out by yourselves. The only other time you'll see others is in Towns/cities.

Not true. You can party up with other people and then go out and explore.

Depends on what you are farming for. If you are looking for good weapons, farming is not the way to go, unless you are looking for "Unique" weapons. GW uses a color system like other MMOs.

White - Average
Blue - Moderate
Purple - Pretty Good
Gold - Getting better
Green - "Unique"

In general, the damage stats are linked to the area you are exploring and it's natural level. So, to get a max damage sword, for instance, you need to be in an area that is, in general, level 17 to 20. I won't bring Hard Mode into this.

Gold weapons tend to be max damage for the area level. The problem is that the requisite skill level for them can be reasonable to absurd. To wield a max damage max level weapon, the minimum requisite skill level is 9. Let's use the sword example again. In this case, the minimum req. would be a Swordsmanship 9. Greens always have the minimum req., but you generally find Golds in req. 10 or higher.

So, in general, it is better to buy your max weapons from crafters or people, or to turn in Collectibles to a Collector for one. There are a bazillion weapons, by the way. Or you can go on a "Run" to one of the Elite areas and hope for a Green drop.

So, what do most people farm? Lots of stuff. Ectoplasm is a big one. They are worth ~8,000 gold and only drop in two Elite areas. Some people farm Runes. These are used to modify your armor and some of them can be quite expensive. When Anet introduced Consumables, people started farming for the ingredients for them, to sell to others. Here is the wiki link for Farming.

I personally Farm very little. I used to Farm for different stuff, but now a days I just run around and help people and kill stuff.

Bout time for me to hop on for a few hrs!
