Big guild update coming, presumably it will be adding guild halls. I don't have a date for it, was mentioned in an interview with one of the writers.

Hi Guys, I'm looking for some basic advice about GW2. I want to get info based on my experience in WoW and Rift most recently and several others going back to Everquest.

I am not interested really in comparing GW2 to other RPGs. That would probably be inviting a flame war anyway.

What I am hoping to get is some advice of how to play this that might be different than the WoW/Rift style of playing. I tried it for a few hours and it never really "clicked" with me. I'm going to get back in and start playing again but want to know what things to look for or what things to do to get the most out of the game. Things that might not be obvious to a MMO gamer that is so used to the "standard" games.

I hope this isn't too vague and thanks in advance.

I've never played WOW. My first MMO was Guild Wars 1 and then Guild Wars 2. It wasn't until I started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic that I experienced things the Guild Wars 2 creators were trying to get away from. There are definitely tanks, DPS and healers in SW:TOR. Guild Wars 2 doesn't have a true tank or dedicated healers. Every profession has ways of reducing damage taken, causing damage over time and healing.

Playing SW:TOR the one thing I miss most from Guild Wars 2, is the shared rewards. Everybody who takes part in taking down a major foe gets some reward. The other day in SW, I was with a team of dozen mid level people who came together to take down a world boss. Just as we were ready to go some lone max level character ran right passed us and attacked the boss. Though our team jumped into the fight, we didn't get credit on the quest when the boss died nor did any of use get a chance at the drop. The level 50 player stole the boss and its drop, a drop 20 levels below him and probably useless to him. These world bosses are slow to respawn. We switched instances and were lucky to find him there with no one going after him and got him again, but when a boss drops 1 item and 12 people on the team, 1 person gets it and 11 get nothing but experience. In Guild Wars 2 a chest would have spawned and been active for everyone who took part, they would all get something.

Interesting Guybrush. That is a big difference. Quite a difference in philosophy.

Bob, yep that is a major difference that I really like. Also, in GW2 resource nodes are shared. So if 5 folks all see the same tree, they can all harvest the tree, mine the ore, etc.

Also, you get experience for helping folks out, but that does not nerf their experience at all. So when I would be running by and see someone in trouble, I'd stop and help, and vice versa. Course, this happens in WoW too, but I found it happened more frequently in GW2.

Also, to kill a world boss you do not need to be invited in GW2...show up and participate.

I never got around to doing the dungeons while I was playing GW2 so really can't compare those. Both games are a lot of fun.

Let's put it this way, I die more in GW2 dungeons even with self healing. SW if we don't over aggro, getting the healer killed, I can usually survive.

Guybrush - you really should try The Secret World too then. Of course you'd need to buy the game first though...

Finally, they put the Cook's Outfit on the sale for 31 days of sales. Now Kissa Nimbleclaw can look like a chef when cooking.
