Because I really wanna know.

There is one thing about guilds I dont quite understand. All those upgrades you can buy with influence has an influence cost, a rank requirements and then a certain time. Is that the time it takes to "build" the upgrade or the amount of time its active or what does it mean ?


to your last question the timer is for how long it takes to "build" the upgrade. think of it as the time it'll take for the bonus or upgrade to become available to you.

Pretty much everyone that's playing this game is probably going to start during the 3 day head start.

I have a $25 gift card to Newegg. tongue.gif I also really like the boxed versions and like having physical copies.

But hey, if someone wants to do an even 1:1 sale, I'll be glad to trade.

So it actually takes 4 hours before those banners that increase exp, for example, to appear? And how do you then know how long, again for example, the banner will stay?

this may be one of the tooltips left unrefined and need clarification. most of the boosts you unlock last 12 hours, none of the banners have a clear duration given though.

I never really considered it grinding in this game, probably because of the ridiculous amount of eye candy which made me literally spend hours just wandering around looking at things. By the time you have a few map areas completely explored you should already be lvl15+ assuming that you didn't actually participate in anything significant experience-wise other than the renown events uncovered along the way.

Of course, I guess since I took nearly 3 years before bothering to start maxing out titles in GW1 I'm probably not a good gauge of how difficult it is to simply progress straight through as fast as possible. wink.gif

This is an excellent point..would it be good to start a new thread just to get a poll for the guild server location or will it have to be done in here? Not sure how people would feel about another thread for the GW2 guild.

This. Most games I found that if I wandered my leveling time increased. Not with GW2. It seems to promote exploration.
