A very fast background. I played GuildWars 2 on release and leveled a Necromancer to around 56. I rarely use the word boring when I refer to a game I don't really like. But that's what happened around 30 to 45 days into it. I actually felt guilty since the game was still very popular, but that's what happened to me. Since then I've been back for two more chances, leveling two other classes to around level 25. Still the same out come, boring ( I hate this word boring for some reason, it makes me feel like I'm depressed or something, and I'm not ).
Since then, both I and several friends were having a lot of fun on a Vanilla World of Warcraft server, but something happened causing us and many others to flee. Now, some of my friends don't have much money, so I suggested GuildWars 2 since its free and were a bunch of refugees.
So we've been playing GW2 very casual for two weeks now.
This is where the review starts :
I created a Human Thief. I logged in and got this overwhelming feeling. I don't feel like doing this again. As much as I loved playing with my friends, it was hard but I overcame and played to level 19. With all my friends we had very few chances to play together, none of us were very entertained because were not really having fun as a group. It's just so so easy, very child like easy. Monsters are dead before any second player can get a shot in !.......Seems, that were drifting apart and everyone is playing on their own. Were not even bringing up the topic at work. It's such a solo game.
As far as combat - Being a Thief, I have several abilities, Double strike, heart seeker, death blossom, dancing, cloak and dagger, and the ability to swap to other weapons. I also have class abilities such as Spider Venom and Caltrops. For each ability, I was excited to get. But playing for a few days I realized, Nothing matters !.....Just press all five buttons. Even three or four monsters level higher, the difference being, I may have to press each button twice. Is this for real ?
Liner game play - Open world my butt.
- Asura, move across the screen one level at a time from bottom to top.
- Humans, move across the screen one level at a time from top to bottom.
- Norn, left to right.
- Sylvari, bottom to top.
With extremely beautiful graphics for each race, nothing really changes with the exception of a nice swamp now and then, but its still the same old as level 1. You seem to level to the same beat from 1 to 80, in fact easer at higher because you now cause explosions with you five ability rotation
Gear and weapons - It doesn't matter, just do a few personal story quest and you have what you need. Use your Karma money after a quest and buy the latest and greatest. Auction prices are so low, just pick up anything any peace of gear that's one level behind for almost nothing. Better yet, don't even worry about it, just press your five buttons and the dam thing is dead
What's with the daily log in gifts ?.....I feel like a unique and special person with the log in gifts. If I forget to log in for two days, I'm loaded !
I get the feeling of not being part of anything, same with my friends were not part of anything......This game is made for five year olds.
