Forced grouping to finish personel story

Wow...just wow. Its just the biggest road block for no reason what-so-ever. The long a$$ story is solo right up to the very last part and then Anet says you have to do a group dungeon first before you can finish.

 

No wonder they didn't win GotY.

 

GW2 has so many roadblocks and grinds, I am truly surprised the GW2 fanbois don't call it a korean grinder.

 

Endgame and everything about it is nothing but grind.

    This game is NOTHING like a "Korean grinder".  Thanks for trolling and no I don't play GW2 anymore.

    Lets see...

     

    Legendery

    1000 karka shell...that rarely drop.

    A precursor item that rarely drops.

     

    Acquisition

    The Legend (one piece for a legendery) drops randomly from these sources:

    • Mystic Forge
      • Four exotic staves (very small chance)
      • Four L80 rare items (even less chance)
    • During the Cathedral event in Orr (very small chance).

     

    Gifts...require 4 stacks of 250 items. You need 3-4 gifts.

     

    Dungeos...have alot of trash mobs.

     

    PvP exotics...350 to 550 badges for each piece that are random drops in loot bags.

     

    And I can list  more.

     

    Sounds like a Korean grinder to me...has both range and grind. But alas...Anet = NCSoft = Rng and grind.

    Sounds alot like a WoW dungeon doesn't it....and I swear the fanbois were saying GW2 is nothing like WoW.

     

    Rose coloured glasses I guess.

     

    SW:ToR = level quickly and nothing to do at the end.

     

    GW2 = level quickly and bang.....everything is a grind.

  • RobokappRobokapp Dublin, OHMember RarePosts: 5,903

    sounds like any fantasy dungeon anywhere...wow included.

     

    hell, do an escalation in EVE and you'll have lots of trash in a space dungeon.

    Actually the OP has a fair point. This is a PERSONAL Story. Why do you need to group to do your own story line?

    because in your adventure you encounter other people who give you a helping hand along the way ?

    I see you couldn't think of anything. No other PERSON helps you with your personal story. You meet npcs along the way that gives you a hand, but for your personal story, it is strictly just you alone. So why do they force you to group for a story that you are supposed to do by yourself?

    But you don't have to do your personal story solo...it's your choice to do so. I don't see anything wrong grouping up with other people that is at the same point in their story as you are. Isn't this game supposed to be about community & helping others out?

    If they give you the option to group or not group all the way  through then why at the very last part do they take away that option and force you to group?

    Your guess is as good as mine but it does seem like a poor decision in a game that says its casual friendly. The old bait and switch....GW2 seems to have done that well.

    Guild wars 2, grindy?  wha...?  I mean yea if you are going for a legenday, other than that, grindy, really? 

     

    RF online, this is not.

  • ToxiaToxia Member UncommonPosts: 1,307

    I dont see the issue here. The story follows that you'll need help to kill the dragon, straight from the beginning. It never once says "You so strong you kill that big thing all by yourself." The whole story is about bringing the races and orders of tyria together...why WOULDNT it be a group oriented 'end of story'?

     

    EDIT: And where's this 'everything is a grind' exactly? You have to grind for legendary, an optional weapon. It's called LEGENDARY for a reason lol. Other than legendary weapons, there is little grind in gw2. Even ascended stuff comes easy. Flame on!

     

    The Deep Web is sca-ry.

    I have to be social to finish a quest.

    Rather than ask for a group I'll go to a social forum and voice my outrage that a MASSIVLY MULTIPLAYER GAME has massive multiplayer elements in it. 

    How dare they!?

    a yo ho ho

    Through the whole story they give you NPC's to finish parts of it until the very last part. Why stray from what they have done from the beginning?

     

    So far I have not seen anyone give a valid reason othern that, that s what they did and I am a fanboy so thats ok.

    Honestly I really dislike this game, though at the same time it was awesome to play through... read into that all you want. As for the OP; the dungeons have a storyline and you have a personal storyline.. both these join up for the last story. If you did the dungeons you would see how it all works out and prolly not be dissatisfied with the last quest being a group quest.
