Guild Wars 2: Geekbox community info

Postby Rydog » Aug 29th, 2012 @ 12:40am

Alright, this is a new sticky thread to discuss Guild Wars 2 goings-on. I'm encouraging folks to head to the Jade Quarry server. It was full for a while pre-launch, but they're slowly increasing population caps. At this point I just want to find out who's playing and what your contact info is. If you're playing, post your in-game user ID here!

Also, note that server transfers are free for approximately ~2 weeks -- and since character names are global, you won't lose anything if you rolled somewhere else and want to transfer. My in-game user ID is Rydog.6271, and Higgins' is newarrior.1278, so get over to Jade Quarry and hit us up! We have a Geekbox community guild called Task Force X, so feel free to ask for an invite.

TingoStar.3975 I haven't done much besides exploring the cities. I'll be splitting my time between GW2 and getting used to the WoW 5.0.4 patch.

I can't get into the game. I got 100% in the first area and I was still 3 levels below the next area. I'm level 18 now with 60% map completion in the next area and quests nearby are all level 24+ and my story mission is level 23... I feel like I'm being forced to grind world events (which means sitting around waiting for one to show up) or grind xp through crafting ( and I HATE crafting in all games, its so boring.) World pvp is the same as any other world pvp. It's just one massive mob fighting another massive mob spamming as much AoE as possible. sPvP is ok, but I cant get used to the clunky animations.

Game is decent but I can't get into it at all. Maybe after I get to start doing dungeons and stuff I might like it more.

Guess I'm not the only long-time listener who was finally spurred to join the forums for the sake of this game. I even managed to convince my friends to transfer to Jade Quarry with me just to play with all y'all. Username is geekahedron.8726.

I can appreciate what people are saying about the leveling curve, but it doesn't seem to be a problem for me personally yet. Playing somewhat "normally" while exploring, finishing tasks, and hunting down all the map items with a fair amount of world event participation (I find it hard to walk by an ongoing event and not chip in for a bit) and a modicum of crafting, I'm at level 13 with 80% of my starting area finished. Seems about right. There have been a few times where I found myself in over my head -- like when an event presumably scaled for the twenty people falls directly on my head with no one quite close enough to help -- but overall I can't complain much about my experience with the difficulty curve.

Loving the combat system, finding (after years of WoW and other MMOs) that I really need to be more on my toes for dodges active and blocks or my squishy mesmer is going down pretty quickly. It seems that even with the decreased emphasis on fixed class roles, there is still definitely room for traditional tank/healer/dps party dynamics. The difference is that any class can fulfill any of the roles.

That's all I have to say based on my rather limited playtime so far. I hope to free up some more time to spend on the game in the coming weeks, and to see you guys around!

I am on the Sanctum of Rall server. Found the Jade Quarry server full on early release night, so had to choose one that was not full. Though I find I am stuck in the overflow server for about 15 minutes every time I log in. :roll:

I am kantun.5280. My main is an Asura elementalist.

HELLO NEW PEOPLE! You guys should join the steam group if you haven't already. There is also an official geekbox mumble server you can use for voice chat while playing GW2. If enough GW2 players get on I'll create a dedicated GW2 channel.

Yo guys, big fan of Geekbox. Not much of a forum dude though.

Already happened to be on JQ before I heard the last episode, you can add me with TokingMonkey.8506. I'm about level 47 now, taking my time with it.

Would love an invite to the guild...figure I'll just add people from there rather then reading off every name in this thread!

A challenge implies some sort of ability to finish. Doing some research, completing the dungeons in this game requires a total respec of your character, basically turning everyone into tanks/healer. This is a vast departure from every other MMO, so there's obviously some sort of adjustment period needed here.
