You just dinged 80. You don't like leveling alts and want to finally experience GW2's endgame. What will keep you occupied for a whole year until the next expansion?

    Erm..

     

    Legendary Weapons

    WvWvW

    sPvP

    Dynamic Events

    Traveling to the lands I Didn't go to and do stuff there.

    The Combat System itself is a huge draw

    Better looking gear (It's only cool to fight if you're fighting with swag mate)

    Exploring the maps and try to do map completes

    Choreographing my own GW2 musical about ninjas who steal turnips from baby charr who are sick with the Nornish plague.  (I may need help with this one..)

    GW2 doesn't have typical endgame.  It has "all game."

     Another game that does not have a subscription.

    Thats the beauty of games like this...I can stop playing at any time, come back at any time, spend money if I want to at any time and never feel like I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING IN GAME to get my subscription monies worth.

    What endgame?

     

    Seriously, the entire game is endgame, so I'd say if you hit 80 and want to keep playing then go do the other areas you haven't done yet.  The downscaling feature makes it actually fun to go into lower level areas.  Once you've done all the hearts, exploring and DEs in an area, move to the next.  Once you've got the whole world covered, you can move to crafting, or PvP, or WvWvW or the different versions of each dungeon run.

    Once you've done all that, you can go back to the areas in the world and find new DEs.  Anet has stated over and over that they will be constantly adding and removing content like that.

     

    Did I mention minigames?

     

    Unless you spend 8 hours/day 7 days/week playing GW2, there will be plenty to do before the next expansion comes out.

     

    P.S. I forgot to add Personal Story (when does that stop anyway???), daily/weekly/monthly achievements, titles, pet and minipet collecting......you get the picture.

    image

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    also Orr

    Well I figured that counted for DE's, the way they explained Orr was that it's like an PVE version of WVW, but only time will tell.

    So Orr might count away from that.

    Also someon added in the updates like I know for example player housing and guild halls, customizing those. I'm sure DE's might be changed or added in as time goes on as well.

    Damn I forgot all taht. Honestly though endgame starts at level 35 IMO or level 30 when ever the 1st dungeon starts, but even though there isn't technically endgame when we hit 80 I doubt the all the stuff listed would have been done, like I might not touch explorable dungeons till I hit 80, I know after experience I'll most likely not go for WVW heavy, till I get close to that level.

    I forgot about Personnel Story.

    So much [viable] ish to do, I'm glad they didn't literally half ass on anything like most mmo devs do. Though that's subjective like crafting could be considered half ass'd to folks I think.

    I play a realworld game called "marriage". It has endgame with advanced economy and lots of drama. Endgame is called "divorce". I feel quite lucky that the rush to endgame is not high on my agenda.

    Game however is both challenging and fun but the sub-fee is a bit steep.

    In GW2 I expect to look for the same minus the sub-fee.

     

    We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!

    Marriages only have an endgame if they are bad ones. Just like MMOs. ;)

    The game plays pretty much the same all the way through. You do what you like when you want. We didn't get to do a whole lot with dungeons, working toward gear (legendaries, crafted, token), or competitive PvP during beta but they will be part of it once the game goes live. The world is huge and there's lots to discover if you're into exploring. There are achievements, world bosses, and mini games, too. The game world will be changed as the game progresses so revisiting areas that you've already been to can feel like a new experience.

     

    The game is what it is. ANet didn't forget to add "end-game" to GW2. The game plays pretty much the same way at 80 as it does at 2 because that's how it was designed... just like Call of Duty, Diablo or Skyrim play pretty much the same way when you first start as it does months later.

     

    I get that some people feel like the only real end-game in a MMO is raiding 2 nights a week and standing on mailboxes for the rest but this game doesn't have that. (There are no WoW style PvE raids or mailboxes to stand on.)

    If you mean Orr, it sounds really fun too, but I don't think that necessarily qualifies as "endgame", at least not the way most people think of it.  But it is intended only for those who have leveled to 80 so I guess that's endgame.

     

    And I'm sure you got this, Distopia, but I was referring to an earlier statement from Anet that the whole game is intended to be played as "endgame".  In other words, there is no fundamental shift in play from level 2 to post-level 80.

    Yeah I got it, IMO though a lot of the spreading of that statement of "End-game starts at level 2 " was really spread around because we didn't know of their actual end-game plans. Which is understandable considering they're just now talking about endgame in recent weeks.

    Im not sure we can accurately answer this stupid question. Right now all we have is word on what the endgame will be by the developers. We dont have solid info the dungeons or ay other special above lvl 80 things to do.

     

    What we do know is the obvious:

    do PvP in both flavours(pvp and wvw)

    repeat or find new events

    repeat dungeons of lower levels

    grind for:

    special weapons

    leveling up crafting jobs

    titles

    be the richest player in the world

    etc

  • AIMonsterAIMonster Apopka, FLPosts: 2,059Member
    I fully expect WvWvW to be at least a year's worth of fun alone.  On top of that achievement hunting, minigames, SPvP (which I intend to do competitively), and legendary weapons should be more than enough for a year (or five) worth of entertainment.

    well, seeing that I don't feel compelled to rush through content to get the best bang for my buck, that's going to be a long ways down the road. I think I'll start on the first expansion, or play some WvWvW, run some dungeons or work on getting some really cool looking gear.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
