Yes, yet another opinion thread. Please excuse my rambling as I try to get all my thoughts across.
First I'd like to say that I do enjoy the game. ANet got a lot of things right in terms of questing and exploring. I think most people can agree with that. My elementalist is level 75 and I only play a few days a week with my husband. We have both been looking forward to this game for a long time as something we could play together. However, the game doesn't have that certain something that keeps me coming back for more. I can easily not log in and sometimes I don't even want to when my husband wants to play. I can't quite put my finger on what's wrong. I enjoy it, but I have no drive to play it....
Now I know there have been tons of arguements on this forum about lack of the gear treadmill. That isn't the case for me. I am a recovering WoW junkie (sober 2 years lol). I've had my fill of raiding, and while it was fun for a time, I don't miss it. What I DO miss is seeing someone on an amazing mount (or great title, or cute companion pet, etc.) and figuring out what I needed to do to get that. I feel like with GW2, that as long as I'm happy with my Ele's appearance, then that is all there is for me. Sure I could collect minis, but no one is going to look at my Mini Brown Bear and think "Wow I wonder how many bears she had to kill to get that?!". Nope, I just bought it from the gem store. I want something to work toward. As a girl, I would LOVE the idea of trying to get new pretty gear.... except, in my opinion, all the "prestigious" gear is hideous. A legendary just feels completely out of the question for me at the moment. I don't enjoy PVP so any of those titles are not going to happen.
I have other things that irritate me a bit about the game, but they've been said on these forums more than enough times. I guess my main concern is whether or not GW2 will ever fulfill my love for fluff collecting. And I want to know if there others that feel like me.
