post #7341 of 10385
Well I just tried my first dungeon (AC story mode) with my guild which consists of 5 people lol (personal buddies). So level cap is 30, and I'm level 40, rest of my Guild is above 30 with the exception of 1 guy who is 27.

Am I the only one that thinks THAT WAS SO FREAKING HARD FOR A LEVEL 30 (ENTRY LEVEL) DUNGEON considering most of us were above level 30 (I know level cap but still, gear has to be worth something as well as elite skill/20 point cap of traits right?! The highest guy was level 47, followed by me who is level 40. I guess it was our first time but REALLY, took us something like 3-4 hours to complete (I lost track of time, 1 minute the sun was shining the next it was dinner time). Each guy/mob felt like a champion where I had to use all skills multiple times and revive team mates/get revived by team mates. We must have died 30 times or more each!

Well at the end of the day I must admit it was fun, though it was difficult. Got pretty shocked at how difficult the dungeon was, but ultimately it got easier as we got used to the different (non trinity) system where everyone has to spam heals. Maybe as we grow we'll learn different strategies/combos but for now Ima do the story and complete maps first. That was a real head ache..:|

AC is surprisingly long. I've heard the explorable mode for it is one of the hardest in the game though.

Yes, AC is evil. Personally I prefer CM.

Anyone else feel like they're walking through the Capital/Mojave Wasteland when playing GW2 now? With only bots to be seen and the occasional wanderer? Probably because I'm in the less played starter areas and mid-level areas grabbing 100% but I'm guessing its just because the majority are focused on their main (which most are lvl 80 or close) and filling those areas.

Good Sirs and most humble madam I am indeed so very surprised as to wonderment at your choice of server as it is, as it happens, as it may be the server upon which I placed my toonies. It is the most, the very most, the very very most brilliant servings of server there are. I would love to be speaking with you there, and to be perhaps leveling up with most gracious, fabulous and bonkingly great whoever you are. As for who am I. Well I am most definitely Unstableiser.5164, which should be added to your friends list.

The OCN server I think is on one of the North American servers. I would certainly had joined if I didn't have such an affiliation with Scandinavia, of which nations contained within make their homely home on North Shiverpeaks. It is a wonderful community! So spank my bum and call me Ernest.

Well I just think the map is pretty huge. Sometimes I see a couple guys here and there to help with events/tasks etc, but most of the time I go by myself. I don't mind it really though, levelling is pretty doable alone, I'm more of a "lone wanderer" lol. I'm guessing most of the people are in the high level areas where they should be.

As for me, when I reach level 80, I might go and try get a 100% map completion if I don't get bored.

Name one other game that supports more than 500 in one spot at any time? I can't think of any. We would crash the zone in DAOC if we got above 300 people. Do you like slideshows?

There are never 500 players all in one spot. That would mean every single player of all three servers factions on a WvW map are all fighting in the same 100 meters. Ain't no way. The largest battles I've seen that have completely crushed GW2's servers with ghost armies and massive lag have at most 50-100 players per side. DAoC handled those numbers way better 11 years ago.

EvE online handles 500-1000 players far better than GW2 handles 100-200 in a fight. They have failed tremendously in designing WvW battles.
