    I did not know about the ingame wiki search function, or linking waypoints.  Cool

    Me neither. The waypoint linking seems particularly useful.

    the first vid was really bad advice IMO, well tip 2-4 were. These are playstyle opinions not set in stone to make your gameplay better.

    2nd vid was good

    the 3rd vid was brilliant, good job! I also didnt know about linking waypoints of the in game wiki, I just wish it was more like GW1 where f10 brought up a window with links to the wiki for various articles

    edit: removed, problem solved woot

    I just started following there stuff but I like the tips they offer as everyone else I did not know about the shift click way points that is cool. The videos explain some good tips for new players and I hope it helps.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Yeah, I do agree that the 1st video is more of a personal preference thing, but some people may not know that you are able to turn off those settings and I myself perfer to turn off double tap dodge. Makes jump puzzles a lot less aggravating. image

    I did quite a few jumping puzzles and didnt accidentally dodge once >.< You know thinking about it I bet ones keyboard has a lot to do with it.. mine tends to not be popular to my husband and guildies =P its a real pain as the space bar has a sort of pressure problem and Im sure it extends to other keys.  http://www.geekiegadgets.com/2008/illuminated-keyboard/ itsnot old but looks like the newegg page is no longer there.
