4. The end-game is not 100% completed, there is much work to do, but ANET is not expecting the the end-game to be reachable quickly, they are now focused on the release, if all goes well they will move on to work at 100% in the endgame (DiabloIII nostalgia??).
I like everything except this. Sounds like they are VERY aware of D3's problems which is a good thing, but devs that don't expect players to quickly reach end-game are almost always wrong. They've done an incredible job so far, but its hard not to be a little worried about that.

Well if i remember correctly its something like 152 hours of gameplay to reach level 80 which equals about 7 days. So even after launch minus two days that still gives a big chunk of the staff 5 days to finish or polish up the high end content. Im not worried one bit and for those who zoom zoom to level 80 well they played the game the way they wanted which is what anet wants. But as far as im concerned they would have forsaken much of the game to get there. I will be taking my time and enjoying my time in tyria after all ive waited over 5+ years for this game and am going to act as a tourist in a land where no one speaks my language. Taking my time enjoying all the game has to offer, sights, sounds, beauty etc. I know anet will continue to provide us a great game at launch and well after. And for that for the first time ever in my life i will be purchasing from the cash shop to support them i.e more char slots, any gw2 merchandise i hope we all do the same.

I haven't played a single minute of the game yet. But, I have never been more excited for a game. This is my first venture back into MMORPGs since Ultima Online. I have done a lot of research and watching of youtube videos. I think this game is going to be perfect for where I am at in my gaming world at this point in my life. Hopefully I will not be disappointed like I was with Diablo III.

About to pull the trigger and buy the game. Girlfriend may not like it because she hated when I played WoW but since my job is seasonal and Im gonna be out of work for about 3-4 months. I may as well have something to occupy my time. Wouldnt you guys agree?

you mean like "move forward" for right click or something similar, right?

man I wish there is a setting for mouse spin as camera spin....like witcher 1 or something

there are 2 extreme types of games

In the first type of games, characters gain power as time goes by

In the second type of games, players gain skill on how to play the game well as time goes by


there are hybrids, but most are fake hybrids, meaning they lean heavily towards one side.

Apparently you like the former, but GW2 leans towards latter.

Lol welcome to my world, except my wife is pregnant and due in a little over a month...I technically wont have time to play, but I logged hundreds of hours into GW, so I am finding it impossible to resist.

Get her to play GW2 with you! This game is very friendly to MMO newbies because gets rid of a lot of the fluff from old MMO's and makes teamplay really easy thanks to level scaling and events. Its also very easy since there aren't a million skills unless you want there to be (weapon swapping, atunements, etc) so she could get one weapon and learn one set of skills and still be plenty effective. You might not be taking down any 5 man dungeons but you will be more than good enough for PvE. This is actually one of the few games I've managed to get my gf to play and even she had some withdrawl after the last BWE.

5 days for high end content? I would be shocked if they could get it done in even 5 weeks! Content creation is no easy job, especially at the standard Anet set for themselves with the rest of the game. Even if it was just polish, the week of launch and the weeks that follow are insanely busy for everyone just to keep up with the new bugs that surface. I'm sure they will get it done, but getting it done well in 5 days would be some kind of game dev world record.

I'm with you on taking my sweet time though. I'm going to almost go out of my way to slow down and take it all in. Especially when they make finding secret areas so worth my time.
