post #2311 of 10385

Not sure why people say Warrior or melee classes are boring. It's all up to personal play styles. From what I see about warrior is more a front line supporter class. Constant battle buff and boost damage for other players.

What's fascinating about this game is that weapon selection defines that role. For instance, the mace+board combo FLCL posted earlier is almost completely about stuns and interrupts. The warrior I was rolling with a greatsword was sheer AoE DPS. From what little I've seen it looks like each class is capable of fulfilling each role (tank, DPS, healbot) based on weapon and utility skill selection.

I put most my time into warrior and had a blast (after I learned the combat better).

i generally have more fun with melee characters, even though most people say they are more boring.

Ty for the people that commented with their thoughts and feelings on the beta, to the people like flc that get hurt at every little comment seriously. Jump off your high horse and start helping and conversing instead of defending your game relentlessly like you made it or something.

very nice video of the warrior and some 1v1 pve stuff looks great but again it just seems so damn easy lol. I mean in the video at least the warrior seems to autoattack dodge and sometimes hit their second ability which does some type of super combo attack chain looks great but using only 2 buttons sure got boring quickly in my eyes.

Yes sure its customizable and you are not forced to do a specific order like you felt like you had to do in WOW but no one made you do anything in WOW. We used damage meters and for hecks sake if I was not top 3 on damage I knew I was under geared or doing something wrong and had to improve myself. If you are the type who do not care about meters then thats fine, but sadly do not expect me to invite you if I need a DPS buddy for a 5man (WOW TALK) unless your a good friend or very skilled because well not dying > damage god who pulls aggro and dies every 5seconds lol.

ahhh, this makes me want to play my buddies account again (GW2) and make a warrior smile.gif



PS - to all of those defenders in this thread please keep in mind we are not attacking GW2 we are instead using negative comments to express our feelings and thoughts but it does not mean we are bashing the game or the community. I was once a total newb in WOW too and grew and learned and played my heart out for days and years and became a very good and respected player for tanking and damage dealing. If GW2 changes all these roles that is fine but I am programmed that there should always be a tank and thus I expect to see a tanky a semi healer and a few DPS per group unless your doing some of my famous Heroic Mech runs with 4 high dps and one healer and no CC smile.gif

just spilling out my change, yes i miss wow but i do not MISS CURRENT wow as they broke the game and I am sorry for talking about WOW so much this is a thread about GW2 but I am also sorry if you cannot compare GW2 to WOW then something is also wrong because GW2s goal besides being a great game is to obviously steal WOW player base and become a better game!

hats off again and looking forward to the next beta weekend whenever that may be to play at my friends house again

so um i said some positive things and negative things but just watched this video and wanted to share my thoughts

1. looks awesome ive always been fond of a warrior/rogue melee characters but he just looked like a beast im sure it doesnt hurt that yuou already have 3 epics or purple gear

2. i noticed your ability bar changes as you choose different weapons and i do agree that is pretty neat for ex you switched to a gun i think and killed someone with several gun shot type things which is something WOW never offered unless you were 1 class a hunter. but then when you get back to sword it switches to your sword stance

3. Does anyone else besides me think that its just silly for all classes to have a heal button? or is this a beta thing? i always felt games should be hard but having a heal button is just silly because no real life scenarios do you heal as you do combat lol.. well thats one of my dislikes

4. i still really dislike the health bubble in the middle

5. is there an auto loot feature or shortcut besides pressing F i believe then having to click the items one by one? i never figured that out and im sure whoever is reading this would be happy to know

6. will addons be supported and by addons i mean similiar to how WOW addons work? i am not familiar with GW1 or GW2 policies.


again game looks awesome and i hope for the best

- it's not epic gear. it's just normal racial gear(gold colored), but it's purple due to transmutation of stats.

- in guild wars every class had several healing skills and most people used them.

- around 3 minutes in he fights a troll twice his level, uses movement very well and every skill as needed.

- higher level guardian comes to help and gets killed due to playing like most people complaining about melee classes play.

- it's either too hard or too easy, can't be both. those little white baby drakes are the equivalent of rabbits in the night elf starter zone, nice judgment there.

Yes the option was in the options menu. All you would have to do was press F then it would loot all items from the corpse automatically. You did have to do this for each individual corpse though.
