It's a Beautiful World

AerowynAerowyn BUZZARDS BAY, MAPosts: 7,928Member

135 Hours over the course of beta and live,  played every class upto about levels 10-20 and just finally got my go to class:)

Honestly haven't had this much trouble norrowing it down to a class I like the best in any MMO I have ever played. But the Elementalist is the winner for me:)

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    graphics and aesthetics are very differn't and obviously very subjective.. TERA has the higher polygon count and is very good looking but imho GW2 has a MUCH better put together world. I actually want to explore the world of Tyria and is actually one of my favorite things in the game

    Tend to agree.  Between Tera and GW2, I much prefer the art direction in GW2.

     

    One thing I am enjoying is taking in the visas, and not I'm refering to the XP ones.

    Note: This was an explorable area meaning its not on the 'main track' of the storyline. You have to find it.

    I have to agree here - Tera is a beautiful world, but it's too clinical, almost too perfect.  The thing about GW2 is that while it isnt technically better than Tera, the artwork is what makes it stand out.  It's kind of hard to describe but its almost like everything you look at in GW2 tells a story, has a presence and a feeling of history. 

    Tera Just feels too shiny and soul less - but it sure is pretty sometimes.

    GW2 is, to me, one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful and detailled MMORPG world ever created.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    I have to say, i love those pants. Seriously, i think the outfit looks great. Is that an Elementalist? Cool.

    As far as GW2's world, yeah, i think it's greta too. Some areas in beta felt too generic, but some locations are great. Don't know what later zones look like, but some of the videos i saw look good too.

    haha meteor swarm is very effective if people are clumping together.. i like to mix things up though playing more Air and sometimes earth is a lot of fun!  Then of course good old water support every now and then:)

    Nice stuff.  Can someone walk me through step by step on how to save a screenie and then post it here?  I have an idea but it's very hazy.  Can't wait to show off my Mesmer.

    in game hit shift+ctrl+h to hide the interface.. then hit the print screen key to take a SS... then goto your guild wars 2 folder and it saves screenshots right there in that folder. Sign up at a free image hosting site like photobucket.com upload to that website and it will give you a direct link for the image after you upload it

    Agreed and not just aesthetically.

    It does look nice, but IMO AoC is still the best looking MMO. Before nut cases try to flame me, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So if you disagree thats fine and dandy.

    Guild Wars 2 is the most stunning world i´ve experienced in a game.

    Cities are impressive & you can see & feel how much love to detail has been put into the game.

    Ok, so...got the screeny saved and uploaded...but I tried to link it here and that's where I'm not sure what to do.  Never could get the whole forum image posting down, it always slips my mind for some reason.

    I have to agree here. GW2 is probably the most scenic and beautiful MMO world I have seen. ^^

    Look for the hidden waterfall in the grove. It is my secret hide out, and incredibly beautiful. You have to swim through a tunnel on the lowest level, and you end up at a place with gold and butterflies EVERYWHERE!

    GW2 has the best graphics out of any existing MMO.
  • elockeelocke Manassas, VAPosts: 4,205Member Uncommon

    Wonder if I could just do this...

    imageimage

    I suppose that works as well.  Cool.  Not the best spot, but it's what I could come up with on the fly.  That face in the mountain in the back, yeah don't want to spoil to much, but think Wizard of Oz type event.  You'll see.  It was a fun event.  Timerline Falls is the zone.  One of my favorites.

    Looks are one thing, but the world is what makes GW2 the best! It is huge, twisting, gorgeous, and I get lost in it constantly. Best game world made so far imho. 

    edit: not flaming at all. I agree AoC has some of the best graphics! ;)
