Originally posted by Scarfe I think it would need to introduce some substantial changes to the game mechanics before I would, particularly since I couldn't even get to 80 in the original before hitting the wall.
Odd, I made it to 80 on my 1st toon b4 hitting even 20% world completion.
after that I went exploring to finish the remaining 80% of the world it was an amazing adventure.
That said, right now I'm finding it a bit hard to log in, legendary weapon chasing is not my idea of endgame, it's just an enormous grind fest, and while the whole game is suppose to be endgame, I'm feeling the lack of a proper endgame exclusive to max level characters only.
After you have a couple of max level toons and you have most of the exotic armors and weapons you need, unless you want legendary weapons there's little reason to login at all.
It's a shame really the game is awesome and gorgeous it only needs more incentives and proper rewards to keep people playing.
This coming from someone that loves the game and thought it would be awesome, you know the whole idea of no grind and the whole game is endgame.
in theory it sounds awesome and brilliant but in reality, hmm no grind yeah right, if you want anything that looks remotely awesome you better be prepared to endure some of the most horendous grindfest I've ever endured in any mmorpg ever !
To much RNG ruins the game completely !
And we need proper endgame exclusive to max level characters otherwise what's the point of a max level toon other than explore mode dungeons, either that or give us a harder version of dungeons with better rewards and by better I do NOT mean RNG crap or yellow rare items only once per 20x runs...!
I won't even bother to mention the ascended gear issue at all, good idea bad implementation !
Dispite all these annoying issues, I will most likely still buy the expansion, the love I have for the game is higher than the hate I have for the things I don't like about it and because I hope to see them turn things around.
also because A.net is one of the few developers that I currently trust, in contrast for example I like the premise of neverwinter but....I thoroughly do NOT trust perfect world to keep their word at all, all their games turn into a dissapointing p2w after several months of release.....they hook you in and than they start the milking once they know you're invested in their game !
Not a chance. This game was a huge disappointment.
Though ANet said it wouldn't be, GW2 is just more of the same.
I'm not paying for more of more of the same.
Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.
Originally posted by TribeofOne totally depends on the content of the expansion.
Exactly...asking people if they would pay for something they know nothing about is rather...crazy...and will provide no usefull information since its based on nothing other than a price.

Where did you get the information that GW2 expansion is on it's way so soon and the information that expansion would even cost 60$ when the expansion would actually happen?

The sad thing is I remember literally counting down the days until each new expansion of GW1, and none of them introduced any new levels (although they did introduce new classes and skills and skins). But taking my level 20 through the new expansions, knowing that there would be very little advancement was stll a joy.
What a contrast not even being able to hit cap in it's successor.

That. I'd never pay for a game "just because".
This nails it.
The expansion would have to have fishing, treasure hunting, taming ( similar to Ultima Online )and other fun things to do other than grind dungeons and legendary crap. It would also have to have a housing system similar to Ultima Online' s housing sytem (finding plots, building houses, and vendors). Since Gw2's housing system will probably be limited and heavily instanced I cant see me buying anything Gw2 related.

Originally posted by Mannish I cant amagine anybody spending $60 on a expansion for this game.
or any other game if the amount of varied content is not enough to justify the price

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

Originally posted by bendwc10 As good as GW2 can be, paying $60 for an expansion no matter how much content they were to put in is silly. It would almost have to be a standalone game for it to be worth that much.
Well gw1 exapnsions were stand alone, so hopefully future expansion packs will be like that.
How did you cap without reaching 20%? I'm at 25% map completion right now at lvl 36
Yes and it's going to cost 60 dollars?
I mean either way I'l pay though it also depends on the content, I didn't know it was official that it was 60 dollars though, was hoping for 40 dollars that's what most expansions cost, I guess GW1 expansions cost 50 dollars back in the day O.O, must of been a lot of content though, was it?
