Me again! This time with a new kind of topic. These are some important things, so do mind your answers.
I am currently at one month of playing and I still don't have what you would call "main" character. But later about that. I have more pressing concerns.
In human starting zones(Queensdale+Kessex Hills) I can't find anything to keep up the pace. Compared to Wayfarer Foothills it is slow as a snail and it even has tracts of terrain where there is NOTHING-well maybe some creep or like that. Again, Wayfarer guide you from one place to the other in a "groundpounding" rhytm-that's what I like. Then again I like humans but the zones are so drab. Are they really so badly designed(haven't tried Charr or Asura starting zones, Caledon Forest is ok)?
In general in PvE I tend to just get stuck and keep doing nothing. I feel like cutting of quests is a bad decision(they should've just thinned them). Hearts are ok, but they should work with quests and not without them. DEs->I don't really like them. They just keep repeating over and over and over again. Nay, they are really bad replacement for quests->they provide just bare context instead of ample descriptions of quests. I LOVE to read and to imagine, I do not like this experience yourself cr@p. Must be personality issue.
What follows when I get stuck is I must basically grind crafting or go do Hearts that are above me(PvP does not interest me in mmos). I should be doing content of my level and not above or below my level. Nay, I feel that ANet has LOOOONG way to go concerning PvE. Is really drab.
Lack of grouping(I don't consider those DE gimmicks grouping) also bothers me very much. I feel like just another DPS, no matter what I spec into. That the skills are balanced around sPvP doesn't help either(use of PvE/PvP skill split would be justified here->I don't want to have skills that inflict 3s of daze with no dmg on a 30+s recharge->that's just stupid).
I like mobility, fortitude, condition damage and depth of combat. Versatility is good to have as well. Melee and come and hit me! is a big no no. I don't care if the class is currently UP or OP(well I don't want OP, UP is ok). Are my Norns good match(Ranger, Engineer and Elementalist)?
If so, any other advices(what to try next and what to avoid)?
I have thief but he is the epitome of skill and agility(Black Powder doesn't hurt either ) and I like him.
Then again I like Knights, hm(maybe I should be Knight in essence and not in form?)...
I'd like you to concentrate on the first issue the most. Because I can't find this PvE enjoyable. Without that I can't play MMORPG. Second part is optional since I have my norns so I am ok. I'd like to hear your thoughts there as well. Overall I like this game, but some segments are really drab and even subpar to the standard MMO tropes.
