Man this game can be so great if they don't cave in and cater to the easy noob theme park model that virtually every MMORPG has taken since 2004. For some reason I have my doubts though. I hope I am wrong.

I don't think you should be looking at the bulk of this game for hardcore content. A majority of the dynamic events (quest replacements, the content most people are going to be doing a majority of the time) are made to be completed by groups of randoms with any number of people. I think difficult DE's are going to be few and far between unless you specifically go out of your way to make them difficult for yourself. Hard mode dungeons are going to be geared towards the hardcore crowd, and tournament PVP is the definition of hardcore.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't call GW2 a theme park mmo though. It has some theme park elements, but that is mostly to help casuals who don't know what to do without them. There is a good video where the GW2 devs talk about how when they let people playtest, they didn't do anything because they didn't have quests asking them to do it. People were ignoring burning villages because there was no quest giver, even though saving the burning village was an event that is underway. So they added NPC's that sort of point you in the right direction, "hey, you should go check out this village, there have been reports of bandits, and make sure nobody poised the well!" At no point in time do you ever have to speak to these people to participate in the events though.

One thing you can do if you find DE's too easy is go to an area above your level. DE's kind of work in tandem with the Personal Story as you move through the world though, so it may feel a little unnatural if your doing Personal Story and DE's in different areas.

At Pax east last year they showed off a difficult DE.

the difficulty of the pirate event was pretty unbalanced, imo. we did great with three to four guys. when it was ten of us....impossible to beat. there were lots of pirates, they were real strong too and the leader took forever to kill. we just kept losing on it and gave up. btw, i'm talking about the pirate's hideout, not the town.

anyways, some old but good videos

Exploring the human newbie zone

Exploring the Charr newbie zone(worse because they say that the mobs were harder to run from/kill so they couldn't explore much)

Dont get me wrong, I love the game. But once EotN came out it became purely titles for GW2.

Don't get me wrong, i love my fellow OCN users but EotN came out loooong before it was known that the HoM would transfer items to GW2. it wasn't planned at the time either.

Anyone want to help me get HoM points in anticipation for GW2? I have all the games.
