How would one make a reason to do something?
Diablo 3 it is not - it has more depth than that. If you unerstand the lore, from GW1, and listen to the lore now, it has more depth.
The combat is meant to be more, not twitch-based but thinking based. An example is, the Ettins in Kessex Peak, will always show when they are going to knock you down. If you dodge then, you will not be. You have to watch the mobs not the bars on the screen to play. It definitely not zerging - sorry folks.

I am not really hearing that these dungeons are well designed, great fun experiences. I am hearing that they are chaotic, zerg-fests resulting in expensive repair bills (Cash shop anyone?). So yes, you are right that it is a good thing that you have to earn your end game gear, but do you really want to in this game?
Originally posted by TheIronLegion Originally posted by GeezerGamer Originally posted by TheIronLegion Ah I see the major issue here. Let me fix this for you. "Why GW2 Lacks Longevity [for me]". There we go!
No, he's talking about why he thinks the average MMO player will lose interest. I happen to agree with him.
If we look at sandboxes, we have the focus on building an environment that everyone can play in. The focus is on the world itself, and buidling that which goes into establishing it.
Themepark MMOs coma along and say, No, you aren't building this world. You get to play in it, but you can build your characters.
GW2 come along and says, NO, you can't build your world here, we already have. You cannot invest in your character, you can only build it to a certan point and then not beyond anyone else. Unless you want to look great being average.
LOL, GW2 is like virtual communism.
Why don't you go say that to GW2's face! But seriously, Look at GW1. Extremely successful in terms of longevity and content. Every expansion was equal in size to the original game(if not bigger) and added a plethora of new content. Arenanet has kept a remarkable track record for releasing content at a very steady rate and releasing it by the metric butt tons. It will hold interests for quite some time. Especially for those who are die hard GW fans and love the mythos.
I'm afraid GW2 will punch me in the face so I'll hide on the internet

... Yes we'll have fun with our game where we ALL have to think for ourselves instead of standing still spaming 1,2, and 3 and putting all the pressure on the healer. Because letting one person do all the work is totally fun. I enjoy having to watch my own hide and no longer having to rely on that person who may or may not be a good healer. There is no role synergy, but there are still group dynamics and communication is key. But the fact remains...you're responsible for your own hide.
Yeah tank and spanks do exist, but so do numerous world boss fights in dynamic events in GW2 where you can basically stand still with a ranged attack on auto-fire and still pick up a gold medal contribution.
The better dungeon content in other MMOs, tends to have a lot of necessary movement and coordination between roles.
Not trying to convinve you or anyone else, just explaining why I am not particulalry excited by GW2 dungeons.
