After factions which campaign should I buy?

Which campaign should I buy after factions, I have pretty much finished all the missions and I bought Factions first because it had more pvp options or so I've heard.....So now I am looking to buy another campaign, which one should I buy? I am thinking of buying EOTN (I know its an expansion and not a campaign) first since that's the newest.....but then I've heard Nightfall has the best PVE and storyline so I might buy that first.....I do not want to buy all the campaigns together for various reasons.....So which would be my best bet?

    The only 2 left are Prophecies or Nightfall.

    • Prophecies is the first one that gets the story started, so i suggest start there.
    • Nightfall is more newbie friendly with Heroes.
    • EotN is an expansion and not a campaign.

    if you ask me i'd definitely go for Nightfall though my favorite is Prophecies

    My personal favourite campaign is Prophecies. Some prefer Nightfall due to it including heroes, but to be honest millions of people survived without them before it was released.


    I'd say get Eye of the North after Prophecies (whenever you get it), as it is a continuation of the storyline.

    I played Prophecies, and then Nightfall, and felt Nightfall was the best in regards to PvE. The flow of the story and the game was great fun, and the Heroes add an extra amount of RTS type gameplay to the mix.

    Prophecies is cheap though, but be prepared that if you played Factions, you will want to get out of the beginning world FAST. It is slow paced, a good place to meet people but, beyond that, not as fulfilling anymore.

    Your best bet? BUY THEM ALL....this game rocks!

    I think the first campaign anyone should start with is the simple, and fun campaign of Prophecies. Once you get your feet wet, you will prob want to aquire a campaign or expansion that has Hero Henchmen, so I would really reccomend Nightfall.

    There are some Factions mission outposts that are dead zones during off hours, and trying to build a suitable group for mission completion is almost impossible. The use of Heros can allow 2 players to create a balanced group to successfully get Masters reward in any mission.

    Don't even bother with Proph, that game was terrible to me, Factions is the best game i've ever played and Nightfall was pretty good too. I've been playing factions for over 2 years now and ill soon hitt he 2 year mark for NF. Get Nightfall.

    Playing:WoW,Guild Wars
    Used to play: Vanguard, Anarchy Online (got to lvl 6 and quit :p)
    Waiting for: Warhammer, Aion

    Nightfall and EOTN include heroes, but Nightfall had much more new skills because campagne not expansion. EOTN is good only for pve.

    Prophecies - best storyline of all GW campagnes (I recommend make a prophecies character), many new skills for Faction player also.

    Nightfall if you want heroes

    Prophecies if you like pve(story is the best of the three)

    The following statement is false
    The previous statement is true

    I say Eye of the North because you not only get heroes but you get access to the Hall of Monuments where your achievements can be transferred to Guild Wars 2. Though you may find a deal where you can get another  campaign and EOTN in the same deal.
