I was just wondering if the game has changed much since i left last november. I played pretty much played through all of the dungeons in expert mode at least once or more, played through almost all the the world maps, finished the storyline, and did a lot of PvP and WvW. i also did exploration here and there, did some jumping puzzles etc. i think the biggest disappointment for me was the lack of improvement of the "dynamic event" system. the events just continuously repeat themselves and they never removed old chains and added new ones to different zones like they said they would. last time i logged in was last month, i just took one peek at the ridiculous market inflation and then logged off.

 

maybe ill start another alt or something?

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

    id give fractals of the mist a go.. really a great time imho:) also if you haven't tried a mesmer yet I HIGHLY recommend them.. going to be a new sPVP map at the end of this month followed by the WvW changes next month as well not to mention the continuation of the living story they are doing now

    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

    Not really checked out the latest content in-game myself but read a bit about it.

    • FOTM (Fractals of the Mists) is a sort of mega-dungeon with lots of mini-dungeons which reward a new tier of gear. You'll find most people running these apparently.
    • Events changed and rebalanced a lot
    • Dungeons rebalanced but still pretty irritating from what a friend tells me
    • Lots of bug fixes and class balances
    • A few new quest chains relating to the main story stuff
    You can read more here:
     
    Generally it all seems like good stuff but all very minor. Seeing as they originally planned to deliver an entire expansion in 6 months and sort out the PvP systems as a main priority, they haven't lived up to those very well.

    You have a link for that?

    they said expansions would come longer than the original gw and were looking at a timeframe of about 1.5 years but looks like the plans are for this year so im happy about that

    Is that sarcasm or does more loot drop now?

    You need to hone your reading skills. If they say "this year" it means christmas. If they were planning to launch in Q3 they would say "this summer".

    The only new thing I noticed is *much* fewer people claiming it's the best game ever.

    Only on these forums. With the official forums up and running you'll find the vast majority of posters there and notably fewer of us fans bothering with other forums anymore.

    is it me or after running all the dungeons  and map completes and yada yada you still call them expert mode vs explorable. I dunno  I mean I have played games for a few months and quit yet I tend to remember what it was that I did especially if I have done "Everything there was to do".

    * No more rez rusing in dungeons

    * Laurel daily system for rewards

    * Orr population decreased to make it MUCH more appealing

    * WvW Culling sucks...stealth thieves are up

    * Golds from lvl 76-80 can now be found on ANY mob in the game on a max level character

    * Level scaling updated (no more 2 shotting low level mobs)

    * Concurrent users are (were) up 6 weeks in a row, which is nice...

    * Guild Missions incoming for the 26th of Feb.

    * Not related to development, but Dungeons are easier to group for with gw2lfg.com
