Take everything you know about wow... and then throw it out the window. This game has no factions, no raids, no constant gear grind, no ganking, no mob stealing, no static combat, no sub fee, no racial advantages to playing a certain class, no spell rotations, no flight paths, no running back and forth to npc for questing, and tons of other differences.

And for the record, these are all good things. The GW2 beta was the most fun I had playing a video game in years. About every 15 minutes I would find something I didn't know about and say, "My god, why haven't games been doing this FOREVER?!!"

I just realised something...

In most of the gameplay youtube videos I watched (specifically for the elementalist and mesmer), there wasn't any mana! eek.gif

Is that likely permanent, or will it be implemented closer to release?

Yup, no mana. It's totally unnecessary with how GW2 works.

Really? Cause they almost wiped in the third room against regular mobs. Not even a champion, just regular mobs. Maybe the actual bosses will go down easier, but I haven't gotten that far.

Hey guys I have a question. I have a 3.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core, 4GB of RAM, and a 500-watt power supply. I wanted to know the cheapest graphics card I can get that will produce ULTRA or at least HIGH output for GW2. I am planning on dropping a grand on my next computer but I just got out of college so I don't have the money, so i'm planning on keeping this computer for awhile. My problem is i want to play Guild wars 2 and have already pre ordered diablo 3. I want to run them on at least high settings with spending as little cash as possible. I was thinking about getting EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti FPB that is on sale at: http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp . Any suggestions on any other graphics cards that will get the job done?

Thanks for the help,

-P.K.

I think a 550 Ti would be capable of running High at 1920x1080, but don't take my word for it. I had no problems playing at 2560x1440 max settings with my 560 Ti. Not sure how an Athlon 64 would fare though, since there are a lot of reports of performance being CPU limited at this stage. They're constantly working on optimizations ofc.

I played the beta and was severely unimpressed, it was very "meh". I don't see what the hype is all about, it is very Warhammer Online'esque. I quit after a couple of hours, my biggest issues were the combat felt super clunky and unresponsive. Not sure if it was a animation, combat or engine issues. And there were too many loading screens everywhere.

Hopefully my next beta experience is better

Its only because the beta was based on people who pre-purchased the game even before a release date was announced, it was for the super fans. Once they open up beta and more people come in, the community will be just as bad as every other community.

They were definitely having lag issues during the BWE. There were multiple times that I tried to get my attacks off, but they just sat there spinning and not happening. It wasn't the whole time, though, so it's not an engine problem or deliberate decision.

Maybe. It could also be that people were genuinely excited about the changes from the standard WoW-MMO blueprint. That and they had to figure it out, since it is so different people didn't automatically know what to do before they even logged in.
