Mmm, I guess my thought process was whichever looks the most realistic and appealing. For me, the Asura and Sylvari were not appealing to me at all. The Charr and the Norn was a bit eh... if I had to choose something else other than the Human, I would choose either Charr or Norn. But the ultimate reason for why I chose Human was because I can see their face. smile.gif It's appealing and the amount of work that I put into their facials, heh. Iuno, it's just aesthetically appealing to me, maybe this is always why I play girl characters.

Off topic: I wish this game was like Sword Art Online. smile.gif The crafting part got it with the discovery system, now only if we can discover skills and be in the world physically, heh.

Need opinions... I played Lineage 2 for quite a while (retail then mostly private) but always went back to play it. I have been very lazy with games lazy and get bored quick but some games hold my attention for a while, usually more casual based, and BF3... But Lineage 2 always had me trapped.

Should I jump on GW2 (can get it for around $40) or possibly just go for BL2... Then again, I have TL2 pre-ordered to take some time too.

Easy to play this game casually? I mean by reviews and just the amount of talk it's getting, seems like the game is amazing.

I've been playing Guild Wars 2 quite casually. I'm not forced to reach a higher level just because my guild mates or friends are and if I need help, the system would "downgrade" their level to mine so it would still be challenging for us. The amount of content in this game is actually pretty good, I spent more time talking with the people on each map instead of working down quests and tasks. It really depends on how you would want to play the game, you could be the casual person who talks on the map chat, you could be the casual person who crafts items and merchants off of the trading post. Or you could be the person who likes to explore areas and regions to complete tasks and map objectives. It's your money, and in the end, it's only a one time subscription price for $40 (since you can get it at that price).

You could jump on GW2 or just wait for Lineage Eternal. smile.gif

some of you guys not enjoying the game?


Well I'm a graphic whore, causal gamer with almost no time to play games and I'm just glad this game came along.

There are some flaws waiting to be fixed (the camera is a big one), but these tiny dents are acceptable when considering the game as a whole

I suppose no games can be made into being loved by everyone. Everybody has his/her only preferences redface.gif

Hang in there, there is plenty of other things to focus on if you're getting frustrated with leveling crafting. I think they did this in hopes some would get impatient enough to just buy some diamonds with real monies in order to purchase mats for crafting. Hold the line! Don't...give...in! $60 bux is all they're getting out of me, damn it.

Salvaging? I tried for 30~40 times, gives me the experience that nothing is good for me except some kind of weapons, I dont know man it just seems like jewelers require very very specific things? like even for Ores, not all kinds work, I digged like 18 iron ores to find out they aren't even used in jewelry making. All that salvaging won't mean a dam thing if all I get out of them are thin leather and wool threads


I dont know, after salvaging a while, and having limited choices of things to craft, it just *seems* very harsh as being a jeweler, then again I've only had 1 crafting class so far so I might be biased.

No, as I've said, I just started, and I meant exactly that, including digging tongue.gif I barely have any gems(to be precise, I got 2 so far...) It's just hard because the "raw material icons" only show up on the minimap and not when you expand it

I do not like the game. I think it is we'll put together I just do not like it's concepts. I like the mmo trinity, I like gear with very meaningful stats, and I like being able to run through low level zones feeling super powered. I also like on server pvp and all that comes with that. I thought guild wars 2 would be a refreshing change but I realize I am set in my wAys. I would not get offended by those of us that do not like it, it is an amazing game for people that hate the standard mmo template. If only someone would make a new AAA sandbox for those of us aching for one since swg was ruined.

I do agree that even the lower levels are quite challenging at times

I however like the idea of having minimal grinding. Well maybe not minimal, but there are other things to do to get levels higher and its fun to try them out


anyway, I'll go into the game and figure out how I can get more gems......I am broke from buying copper ores from trade I can't even buy gems to train that up

what the hell man.....

I don't want to turn into one of those bitter MMO players that grind to max level in a week then complain about no end game content. rolleyes.gif

Funny I'm the exact same man. I hate, I mean HATE that I dropped 60 bucks on Diablo 3. What's so ironic about that is I've been a self admitted Blizzard fanboy for a long time. I've also made no bones about the fact that I couldn't stand Guild Wars 1 and really didn't even have the intent to purchase Guild Wars 2.

Well my buddy talked me into it and lo and behold I freaking adore Guild Wars 2 and absolutely despise Diablo 3. I mean honest to God the thought of even loading up Diablo 3 again just makes me nauseous as nothing about it is "fun" to me. I was also burned bad by Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. I don't think it was a horrible game by any stretch but I had def bought into the hype and just knew it was going to kill WoW. Well, it didn't lol.
