post #591 of 10385
Sorry for the retard mode questions but im gonna ask anyways.

1) Is Guild Wars 2 an open end MMO like WOW in the fact that you can quest and run into hundreds of different people in a zone? (i never played GW1)

2) Are there dungeons and raids in Guild Wars 2?

3) Is there an Auction House and other features like that?

WOW is the first and only MMO ive ever played so thats all I can really compare my questions to. Thanks for any insight.

it's an open world like WoW.

There are dungeons, which are not like slave pens or hellfire ramparts...they're longer, harder and more spaced out. it's more like old school Blackrock and EPL dungeons from WoW.

yea, there's gonna be a marketplace in GW2.

Luna Atra : One of the biggest deficiencies of the first GW was the lack of real economic tools such as an auction house or a private store mode, so we were forced to sell auction-style but then we were unable to really play. Not considering the fact there was not a unique trade outpost, this did not ease the task. What is planned in GW2?

Curtis Johnson – Game Designer: Guild Wars 2 includes a full Marketplace for players, which will differ from the usual MMO auction house in a number of ways. The biggest and most important difference is GW2’s Marketplace supports postings from both buyers and sellers. You might put your sword up for sale, then offer 100 gold for the specific axe you’re looking for without having to find any specific seller. The market can display the history of average value and trends for an item, making it easy to determine a fair value for your goods. It might be worth waiting to sell your item, depending if the price is rising or falling.

Items you put up for sale may sell while you’re offline, and the funds will be deposited in your account bank. You must be in game to put a new item up for sale, but you will be able to browse the market, bid from your account bank, or cancel your own auctions and offers while logged in to a web browser without running the game.

Surely some classes must be better at certain professions than others? Giving all races all the same classes and making them all equally good at each class just seems like lazy balancing to me. Not a deal breaker, but hopefully there are some differences between races other than the way they look.

What's the alternative? Be like WoW where if you're a priest or rogue you MUST be Undead or Dranei/Dwarf because of imba racials, rendering the other races useless in PvP and PvE?

While races will have racials, it hasn't fully been explained what exactly they are, or how big a role they will play. Apart from the Norn with their shapeshift racials, plus a couple other that I'm forgetting.

Trust in Anet.

Giving all races the ability to play all classes is a good thing. It gives the player base less restrictions allowing them to make the character that they want but also allows more diversity between the classes and how they look. If you class restrict to races all you get is a bunch of people running around looking the same.

That's a brilliant idea. I've seen it in Eve Online, but it is nice to see a more traditional MMO doing it.

Anything that removes class based elitism is a good thing. Play Guild Wars and you can see how annoying it can be when only so many professions, on top of specific level titles, etc, are used for a specific run. GW2 actually does something to try and solve that problem so that you don't have to create a new character just to enjoy high level content.
