can always leave and come back when you want to, basically what i do im not on very often but i come and go whenever i have the urge to play just a general lack of interest in playing most games these days nothing to do with GW2 specifically.

It took me about three weeks before I had my "AH HA!" moment with GW2. Its been very addictive from that point on.

Been hearing A LOT about Guild Wars 2 the last several months but I never really cared much as I'm A: Basically retired/bored with MMO's after a decade with them and B: Many other games to play at the time.

I kept hearing good things about the game all around and it does look real visually nice unlike the first one I tried for about a month many years ago and got bored with it, especially because it wasn't a "real" MMO and I could only interact with people within citys and certain boundries.

I guess thats not so much the case with this second one along with a bunch of other changes that make it sounds almost worthwhile, and I have some credit on Amazon from my Sim City preorder that I can pick it up for $30 atm.

I just have a few questions for the veterans that can help me determine if I should go for it.


1. Exactly how much or little can you interact with people because its a "free" MMO still? The first one felt lonely from what I remember of it.
2. How has the class balance been along with specilizations? Are their imbalances that ruin single and well as coop gameplay?
3. I know there was some bad bugs upon launch, how has the patching been for game stabilization?
4. How has the server populations been to find people? I heard not long ago some servers were dying and finding groups was a royal chore
5. How important or not important is it to buy those gem cards I see in the store? Does spending money give you worthwhile items in the game or is it just for bling and show?
6. If you stopped playing, could you state your reasons? Especially if you have played other MMO's. I"ve played all the major ones and small ones through the years, so i've seen and played pretty much it all
7. What does Guild Wars 2 do better that other MMO's don't?

Just gonna answer number six before I head to bed.

6. Because I knew I could come back to some other time so I didn't force myself to get on and play like I used to with other MMO's that I felt I had to play as much as possible for the subscription to be worth it. I had other things I'd rather do but I have some more time on my hands now so I've come back and been having a great time.

Items in GW2 have both an appearance and stat boosts that can be interchanged by various means. With the March 26th update, WvW players will have a whole new way to obtain various racial, special, and other items that were previously only purchasable with karma. With your badges you’ll first buy one component (the stats: Knight’s, Carrion, Cleric, Berserker’s, etc.) and then a second component (the visual look: racial skins, and so forth). Later on, if you decide you want the same stats, but a different look, you just buy a new skin and recombine them. It’s a lot like item transmuting, but for WvW bought gear. Worth noting is that the stats are the same as those you’d get in any other part of the game, and the visual skins are the same as well, so no one who doesn’t partake in WvW will be missing out. Rather, this is a way for WvW-loving players to actually get stuff they previously would have had to go PvE for. Something that will delight a lot of the members of one of my guild, I must say.

So what skins are the referring too? Like I can just buy a dungeon skin and throw it on my current armor? Or you need WvW armor to use the skin. Seems like WvW is getting much needed love at least. They need to up the badge drop a bit. When I was playing WvW more often, all my badges come from the EB JP. Barely any get dropped.

basically all the skins available via dungeons, crafting, sPvP and racial armor will be obtainable with badges for those players who only want to do WvW. they've already increased the drop rate last patch, don't know if you've played since then.

It claims it's only items that were purchasable with karma are available to WvW badges. That means not dungeon gear, but the other stuff like Temple Armor.
