As a Mesmer my favourite combo is a sword and pistol, with a staff in my other set for survival skills. I sometimes swap the pistol for another sword for insane dps or some other utility. The two handed sword is also awesome for when grouping at range.

Items in your inventory will either gray out or get bold. The bold items can be added until you get a recipe. There are a couple of standard recipes that need to be moified to discover more. Jute scrap + fine crafting item (blood, claws, etc) makes an insignia. You need lots of insignias, but try to make as many different types as possible. Jute + copper bar also works, so play around and find out what insignias you can make. As you level up, jute becomes wool and copper become iron.
Insignias need to be added to a piece of armor to craft it. You do this by making a lining and a metal part from the regular crafting window. Make a boot lining out of jute and a boot plate out of metal. Then take an inignia, the lining, and the boot plate and stick them into the crafting window. It will make a metal boot with the stats from the insignia. Do not ever make that boot again unless you need to level up or you want to send it to a friend or alt. Now replace that insignia with a different one until you make boots of strength, boots of life, boots of accuracy, etc for every type of insigia you have. The switch to gloves, chest, helm, shoulders and do the same thing until you have made every combination and not making something more than once. This will get you started. There are a lot more combos than this that involve using 4 items instead of just three and some tricky ones for special boxes or a pack that contains a whole suit of armor. You can also make runes with some of the rarer fine crafting items.
Try not to make 20 boots and 20 insignias of the same type, as each time you discover a new recipe you get a huge amount of experience. Vary as much as you can.

Very informative. And this is making more sense now. Thank you. +REP

Silly me, i forgot having an opinion isnt allowed :/
Have i ONCE said i expect it too be flawless/perfect - No, i DO think however knowing how much the servers were punished during the Beta and Stress Tests (shock lol) i am surprised how limited the servers are - Surely they should have made it so that they were capable of having say 13,000 people on a server BUT limit it too 10,000 so that the server has that head room for issues and such

Look at WvWvW - the number of people that can be in that is STUPID its SO limiting too the whole WvWvW when a mere 1,000(ish maybe max) are allowed in per a server- not really WvWvW is it?

I managed too play without issues WHAT SO EVER last night and spent the whole night in WvWvW, we (Desolation) were just dominating AGAIN too the point where we had control of EVERY point on all 4 islands and were just completing destroying them for fun HOWEVER the BIG issue was the lack of numbers from the other servers even if they worked together i dont think they would have been able too beat us.

I personally think its great - You got Storymode (so good) as well as dungeons, events, WvWvW, Spvp, Hearts (aka quests) as well as just having fun, there is alot too do, however if this will last for long when many people are lvl80 i am not too sure, WvWvW and Spvp i think will, they seem too be concentrating on it a bit more then PvE, not too say that PvE will get left out as its got that lvl 80 only zone with constant mob spawning too attack towers and such

I agree, it just doesnt seem challenging, did AC for the first time last night and though i loved the dungeon, it WASNT because it was a challenge it was because it was new - i really hope the other modes will be tougher and looking forward too seeing the other dungeons. WvWvW is ALOT of fun though

I think Anet made a misatke in how much XP you can get from Crafting, you could gather/buy mats and lvl from 1-80 in minutes with the right number of mats which i think is a bit stupid

and like 5-10minutes if you have the mats you can just craft your way too lvl80...

I will admit, this was one of my bigger worries about the game, I was not hugely impressed with the dungeon footage I saw prior to release but playing it was a lot of fun. I'm going to have to be significanly better at this game to pull off explorable mode. Learning the tells for the big attacks is so cruical for me since I was playing melee.

None of the bosses bar as you said the Lovers was a challenge at all, really hoping the new modes and other dungeons are more of a challenge i remember reading and Anet saying that it would take upto 2 hours too complete Storymode in it, i dont think it even took us 30mins, though it was fun it didnt feel amazing or anything and i had more fun running the first dungeon in Rift forget its name but has a Fae bosses in it and snow and such the design was amazing and the bosses were a great challenge

Keeping the player count down in WvW is important for a lot of reasons. The higher the cap, the less likely low-pop servers would have a chance to compete. Keeping it reasonable allows for even low/mid pop servers to field a full team. If the big servers would always win, a lot of people would move to the big severs to win more, especially the players that care about winning WvW. That creates an awful positive feedback loop that could potentially destroy the entire gametype and spill over into PVE with all those players on one homeworld. Who wants to play if only a few severs can be cometitive? It also leads to server issues with that many people in only those 4 zones, the game-crashing graphics card melting potential of a SUPERZERG, and general player density issues. That WvW cap is a number chosen very carefully to balance how many people experience it with the quality of the experience. There are trade-offs in either direction, but its not like Anet just wants to screw people or can't afford the proper hardware.

As for the leveling, getting to 80 quickly is really not that important. If people want to rush, let them. I'm going to love crafting up an alt to level 80 in 5 minutes after I have already played the storylines if I just want to play WvW with it or run around in high-level zones. It's not like enough mats to get to 80 are free, you have to spend a lot of gold to get them, been playing for a long time, or have a guild backing you. I'm probably going to take my sweet time getting to 80, but by all means get to 80 however you want at whatever pace you like.

I'm turning into a gaming hippy. On no!

It isn't that everyone else is issue/bug free. It's just that you dwell on everything too much. Get over it. It's pretty obvious by their response to the botting/exploiting and the numerous hotfixes that they're working feverishly on everything. You going on and on about the obvious isn't going to change anything.

Play the game until they fix it in the near future or play something else. You have made 14 posts in this thread in the last 24 hours doing nothing but complaining and arguing with people. Are you really surprised that people are getting tired of reading it all?

Hmm... My black screening is certainly not due to my 7850 or its drivers.
Just did a re install of windows, with my trusty 460 plugged in, willing to take the performance hit until I figured out what was wrong, within 5 minutes I got another black screen wth.gif
I've re downloaded the entire client(also -repair'd it), adjusted to every possible combination of in game settings. Tried all these things at stock clocks, and with my over a year oc.

I've run admin, in compatibility mode, disabled visual themes from aero. Tried running from hdd, tried on a ssd. Put in my old 2,2GB sticks, of RAM
Changed monitor resolutions, changed refresh rates. Uninstalled my sound card(had an issue years ago where a game didnt like my card) Used onboard sound.
Disabled onboard lan, used a pci lan card.

I'm really reaching for new things to try now redface.gif

So a fresh install of windows with two different brands of video card didn't fix it? That is one heck of a problem. I think that leaves 3 options. The game, your mobo, or your monitor. Have you tried looking through the graphics options in bios? I had some issues an old rig sending my monitor into sleep mode because it was looking for input for onboard video but it was still using a video card anyway. It was very odd. Have you reset your bios? It's a long shot but computers do dumb things sometimes. How about trying a different monitor or a different cable (DVI/HDMI/VGA)? Another unlikely, but its worth a shot because it will only take a second if you have one around. Last option is the game itself is just going something funny.

Can you quote your post where you described the issue originally? I can't find it in the past couple pages. This only happens with GW2 right?
