Hmmm, might be worth picking the game up if there's going to be a Warseer group. :D

Eh, what the heck, I'll grab it after work ;)

Been debating getting it for a while now any ways.

Yeah probably, my typeing gets worse as the day goes on....

what i ment to say was that the guild is running, Sylass is happy and nick might be happy.... Sylass paid for the guild capes.

The next step is to create a guild hall but they cost in the region of 40,000 gold coins....ironic number isnt it....

i will get onto trying to raise cash..... that should be fun, why did i destroy my lvl 18 warrior last week.... stoopid mcbain.....

i will endevour to type more correctly since nicks looking at the thread, i suppose you could say its fitting that you cant understand my posts people could barely understand me at games day.

edit* i would like to add that i have been awake since 4am for work*edit

Nick, go to bed. Now. :p


There's a chance that I'll join the Guild games every now and then. I'll most likely not give up my current guild, but I guess I can still join the odd WarSeer game while wearing a different cape, right? ;)

Wow, picked the game up and it looks great. Looks like a diablo 2 style game (adventure with a party as oposed to an entire world) with the shine and polish of World of Warcraft, very nice.

Woot! First member as far as I can tell. Super spiffy looking cape, well done whoever made it :D.

McBain, when do you usualy get on?

Paris Lark is the only character I have so far.

Sylass
20-07-2005, 18:18
So you plan to start fresh in pre-searing Ascalon?

I'd need to decide about a new character then...Arawynn completed the game already.

McBain
20-07-2005, 18:56
Well im in post searing feel i might start a new character, feel free to join what ever your location or progress......

you are the first member and i am on sporadically nightly depending on the attitude of the wife to be, whom at present is none to happy with the 24hrs a day relictors ramblings of me.... anyway im on a lot...

McBain
21-07-2005, 17:11
Well the reason you cant find the character Lady reeana is because my character name is

Lady Reanna

or

Which ever you like all you do is whisper me if im on or you simply pm me here and i shall add you to the guild.


To join just pm me.....

Hey, I got this game when it first came out, but I had my AS exams so I couldn't keep up.

But now I have way too much free time :rolleyes: and so now it's sucking me back in, and so I thought I might as well join up with a new guild

Have you got any pics of the guild cape?

Strikerkc
25-07-2005, 01:59
Well, did a screen capture, I quite like the cape.

Just send your character's name to McBain and he can add you when he gets on again.

I'm thinking about buying the game, and would maybe join then, but the one thing that bothers me is that you cannot hide your cape at all. Well, I never figured out how to, anyway...

It just bothers me that it's visible all of the time. In PvP fights and in towns, oh all right, I can see why. But I'd at least like to be able to hide it in the field! I can get the colour of the armour to match the cape, but I can't do a thing about the pattern. :(

Sylass
06-08-2005, 22:59
The cape isn't that bad, really.

First I avoided joining a guild cause of the capes too, but you get used to that. :)

Right now I'm badly addicted to playing PvP...I never tried that before since I bought the game (pre-ordered even) and it's quite fun. You even have a decent chance if you didn't capture a lot of elite skills/magic gear in PvE already and play with the premade characters. (Of course the additional stuff you unlocked in PvE is a welcome help ;)).

Atm I'm using a pure Water-Mage (E/Me premade build without using Me skills) most of the time, but I got a Paladin (Warrior/Monk) too.

I suppose I would get used to it, yeah... Still, it's a GW pet peeve I have. :p

Yeah, it's good you don't have to unlock stuff in PvE. Granted, it's a bit tricky finding out your playstyle from the pre-made PvP builds, but hey... Can't have everything from the start, mm?

How's Water working out for you? From what I've read, it's generally not that popular in PvP as, say, Air is, even though the large majority of slows isn't bad. Is the damage lacking, or is that made up by the utility and the extra defense? I know that's the case with Earth (Stone Daggers, Stoning, Obsidian Flame, Earthquake, Aftershock...), but how is Water really?

Also, you didn't go with a Necromancer? For some reason I figured that'd fit you better. ;)

McBain
07-08-2005, 07:11
I had a play around with necros but i found there were far to may of them around for my liking, im currently useing a fire mage with Em/Me build but previously i used War/Mo build with hammer skill which i found to be exceptionally good for gaming but in the end rather boring.

I have just started up a ranger which may have monk or warrior as a secondary but im not sure as of yet.

Sylass
07-08-2005, 14:42
The pre-built Water-Mage purely relies on these "get energy back for every water spell you cast" and "get life for every spell you cast" enchantments to save her life. I'm not even sure if there is a water spell that provides a decent additional armour. If there's one, I don't have that unlocked.

The damage is quite high if you specialise in Water magic only. Means you'll have a lot of points to spend for the Attributes Water Magic and Energy Storage.



Btw, I got rid of the Warrior/Monk build last night after thinking about and falling in love with a Ranger/Warrior build that is based on close combat and uses an axe to kill. :D

Works pretty good. I think so far I was able to kill about 90% of the Warrior/Monk builds that decided to challenge me single combat. :evilgrin:

It's just that it get messy if she's getting attacked by a couple of enemies...or a single Mesmer. Damn, how much I hate these guys. Whatever you do, always try to get rid of the Mesmer in the opponent team first. Well, if they have a Monk he'll have to be the primary target, cause he'll keeps healing that aweful Mesmer...

Did I mention that I hate Mesmers?



*edit*
Oh, the Necro. No, I didn't try that. For some reason I dislike the way he/she looks. And that Ranger girl is just too cute... :p

Kjell
07-08-2005, 17:09
There's a bunch of Water armour spells, yes. There's Armour of Frost (weak to fire, though), Armour of Mist (no idea what it does, presumably different to the frost one) and Mist Form (defense AND movement increase). I think those were all.

And you wanna get rid of Mesmers? Befriend three or so Air Elementalists, and have them load up on their single-target attacks. If there's only one Mesmer, no single Monk can save the guy from all that spike damage. Lightning Strike + Lightning Javelin + Lightning Orb x3 with decent enough points in Air magic... Bye-bye squishy. :o

Of course, more than one Mesmer, or more than one Monk could prove to be a little tougher. :p


Oh, what's the pre-built build you use called? Last time I got to check the PvP builds supplied there was only the Ice Blighter, E/Ne with Water magic and Curses. Damn, gotta get the game now... I'm trying to wait for a sale of sorts, any kind really, but no luck so far. Oh well. I'll have to cough up the money anyway.

Sylass
07-08-2005, 21:44
It's the E/Ne one, just without using any Necro skills/Attributes. :)

The problem with Mesmers is that they seem to be able to shut down casters & fighters very effective. I killed myself more than once when under the effect of Me hexes...

Figured I'd go ahead and stick it up here, the Guild capes have been changed to something that works a little better.

You can also get added to the guild by sending me a PM with your character's name, I can add people now to.

Sylass
15-08-2005, 21:03
Here's a pic of my lovely Ranger/Warrior girl, called "Dweya Raynell Pvp". Yes, she's fighting with an axe and the prism thingy you got when pre-ordering the game. :)

Sometime in the near future, I'm planning to start the same char for PvE too, just without the "Pvp"/"PvE" addon.

McBain
16-08-2005, 11:06

here we have mistress darkseer in her new necromancer outfit soon she shall have the oh so hot bonelace armour.

Hmmmm, don't ask? :D:cool:

Nice thing about the game is it works just fine to play it in half hour increments, most missions can be nocked out in that time or less. So you won't neccesarily have to lose yourself all afternoon or anything. ;)

16-08-2005, 16:58
the problem is that we share a household and our bank account. so "Don't ask" is a big NONO. Maybe i will have to distract her with an expensive gift...

Curently, there's the Master, an officer, and 1 regular member. We decided we're going to start recruiting people that don't nesesarily come to warseer also.

Part of the issue is that a lot of people that play the game here on Warseer played it before the guild started, and are therefor already in a guild.

Sylass

Regular playing times, well at the moment whenever i can cos im on holioday from work but starting september i will be on about 1900 gmt each day i think roughly.

Also trying to get hold of the prima strat guide for some answers.

No bf2 here im still into joint ops

Strikerkc

I'm on about 1600-1700 gmt, and about 0400. Come september I have no idea though.

Just a couple of questions;

Can I join several guilds at once with the same character, and can I still join [edit: the warseer guild] even though I'm registered on the european server?

If you join a guild with one character, all your characters become a member of that guild. And oy can only be a member of one guild at a time.

As far as the European question goes, I'm not sure. I've been able to play with Sylass on the international server. Drop me your character's name and we can out.

Sylass
18-08-2005, 05:40
Yes, it's one guild per account only.

And if players from different server-areas (europe, america...) wish to play in the same game, you'd just need to meet in a district of a international server.

McBain
18-08-2005, 09:30
I think there is an option to allow you to change your server.....

say i start a character on the uk servers you can change to the us servers but then you cant changeback, so if i recall from my first character you get one swap then you stuck in that server...... i did it with my first character because i was fed up with not being able to read all thechat in the european ones... so i switched to us..

Sylass
18-08-2005, 10:18
You have a few chances to change your homedistrict in your account settings, but it's limited to 3 (4?) changes I think.

It's a lot easier to just select the "International district" from the district dropdown menu at the top of the ingame screen and meet there. :)

You don't want to waste your "change homedistrict" attempts...you never know what you'll need them for...

Also we now have a collection fund going to the guild hall if thats where we wanna go, but im a long way off from being in a position to actually buy on in the story line and im not sure if officers can buy them........ also we will need to earn 10k but thats not an priority i feel the priority should be to expand the guild and gain our main characters to a higher level.

I think I've gotten pretty far into the game. I can only think of two places with guild registers and thats Ascelon and Kryten(sp?) so I could check the latter if you can get one there :)

I could have donated at least 2 platinum but I spent most of it on my lvl 6 (or is it 7?) N/E character (Eddie The Ead)... should get it back eventually :)

McBain
20-08-2005, 12:33
i know that you need to wait till a point farther on in the game to aquire a guild hall.... and as for money raising no rush man, dont know if we are going to aim for a guild hall yet???????

also apologies fo my absence while at wedding i shall be on his after noon.... unlessthe pr0n hits again...

I had some great fun last night on PvP with my lvl 20 W/Mo. Playing mainly that team-based one with the random arenas, I picked up quite a fair bit of faction points (yet not enough to unlock anything!).

Hall of Heros (the CTF style one with the ghost...) was as hard as ever, no matter which team I'm on, I get pwned first then the rest of the team gets knocked out early! Well... it wasn't so bad last night, I managed to stay alive longer and my team was thrown out second to last!

McBain
23-08-2005, 22:03
nice, i have only played around in the pvp arenas a little i never got the hang of planning a build to win,

I did however make to the gates of Krya (sp) today and im having a bad time trying to get past the quest to wipe out the undead, we keep getting slaughtered.

I would like to say that the quests over the mountains with the dwarves was very very cool. My fav part so far.

Also i have a stack of crafting material if you need any and a vial of red and green dye also a major earth rune and a part for a staff if anyone needs them.

Also a friend has quit GW to concentrate on WoW so i might be able to get his stuff and cash... stick with me it may take time but we shall see..

Thoume
24-08-2005, 12:42
If you're on this evening I'll see if I can help you past that bit. All my W/Mo needs is symbol of wrath and a bane signet!

As for the materials; I'm fine atm, but should any lower lvl players join the guild it would be great for them.

McBain
24-08-2005, 15:51
Thats what i thought...

Thoume
25-08-2005, 09:29
Dunno how quickly we can get the hall, but there's going to be that PvP Extreme (http://www.guildwars.com/events/pvpx/default.html) this weekend. If we can't get it for that that's fine, I'll just have to see what carnage I can spread with Han Tao (PvP Mo/W) :D

Anyone else going to be participating?

Sylass
25-08-2005, 09:36
I'm defintely planning to play PvP with my Ranger/Warrior girl "Dweya Raynell Pvp" at the weekened. Extra fraction and exp? Yes please!

I'll probably play Friday and Saturday...On Sunday I'm visiting the Games Day in Cologne, but maybe I'm playing a bit again Sunday night. ;)

If you want the Guild Hall before the even, give me a call. There are 10K Gold missing to pay for it? I could borrow you the gold if you like...

Thoume
25-08-2005, 15:01
There are 10K Gold missing to pay for it? I could borrow you the gold if you like...
Do you mean that you need 10k or that you have 10k? Because I have sold (almost) everything for 16,706g. Last time I checked the sigil needed to get the hall costs 50k (It may change, I don't know), so name a time and place and I'll give you the cash.

edit: wait, your not in the guild are you? silly me! But yea, I've saved 16+k for the record. Anyone else got any to donate?

Strikerkc
25-08-2005, 18:01

I belive when I looked at the possible ones to get, it was at 60K.

Be quite a while then :)

I now have 18,319g (and counting...).

I have my doubts that I'll be able to get the cash together then be able to pass it on to our leader/officer before the end of the weekend, but we shall see. :)

McBain
26-08-2005, 16:45
well i have les than 1k now.. although im trying to collect cash...... my cousin is offfering me all his GW stuff.... are sigils transferable?

Sorry, no idea about the sigils.

But I could borrow you 15K...I'd just like to have them back one day ;)

Ah... ok. What time(s) are you usually on so I can give you the gold? As for the sigils I think they would be as they are an item and people have been trading them (for a more extortionate price than normal in some cases!)


...But I could borrow you 15K...I'd just like to have them back one day ;)
Na, I think we'll be fine. I've now got 22,790g (good thing lvl 20s eh? :D).

I've reached the 'ring of fire' island, which gives a lot of loot! I've also done bolris(sp?) pass single handedly which usually drops some good stuff to sell. Got at least 1k out of that!

McBain
26-08-2005, 21:13

Maybe I'm the only one sufferng from this, but it's absolutely pointless to play right now. At least PvP...the announcement about the extra faction/exp made everyone and his little sister log in tonight, resulting in massive lag.

Never been that bad before. You are sitting there unable to do anything at all for half of the matches...

Probably is, but it's been fine here. Ok, perhaps the occasional lag, but nothing major.

I think I've got at least 1-2k faction today... (edit: I have 3,694 faction atm)

Sylass

I got about 3k faction so far, but it's frustrating...I want my personal GuildWars server. :p

Anyone got any ideas on how to raise gold quickly? I've tried trading with player characters but they're always after 'Max damage gold weapons' and the weapon parts, although they could fetch for quite a price among PCs, they just don't want to buy them!

I've tried doing some of the missions again, but it gets a bit tedious after a while. I've also tried to get people to go on... what shall we call it... farming? drop runs? whatever you want to call it, basically going to a non-mission field and trying to get as many item drops as possible basically!

I guess nobody is online now, right?

Thoume
26-08-2005, 23:12
Sorry for double posting, but I found a good spot for getting quick gold. If you go to lions arch and the area north to it there's a large swamp with lots of bog skales. At lvl 20 they're easy to take out, and at one point I managed to haul 1.1k's worth out of it! There's hundreads of other nasties in the area but a few of them (especially the fire imps) are kinda tough when your fighting alone, and going alone means more gold (it sounds selfish I know, but it's for a selfless cause! :D)

Just got to remember smite hex next time I'm there...

basically hes giving m all his cool stuff.... so we shall need to organise to sell it.

McBain
27-08-2005, 23:00
ok update time....

80k sword will take a few days....

but as a guild member shall vouch i have a lot of blue.purple, gold worth a stack to sell, i will make a list and we need to figure prices... also a lot of precious crafting materials.........

all is well

Thoume
27-08-2005, 23:26
Like I said in game, how a sword can fetch that sort of price tag is beyond me. Sure, some player characters would happily (or reluctantly) pay that sort of price, but if that's how much NPCs are willing to pay, I'm amazed...

But yea, that was a lot of stuff there. You could easily get over 1k with it but it would be better to sell most of it to PCs as some would be willing to pay double the price (or more). E.g. I sold a fiery sword hilt for 400g when it would have been worth only 25g to a NPC... :)

McBain
28-08-2005, 10:47

Well, we've got anough for the guild hall now. Thoume did the vast majority of the leg work and I made up a small difference at the end.

Thoume
01-09-2005, 16:31
One small problem though...

While the sigil itself is 60k, it is not the final cost of the hall. The sigil is, should I say, a requirement in order to get a hall. I don't know how much more expensive/cheaper the halls are going to be, just to warn you this may take a while longer.

I know, it sucks. :(

I was fairly certain that you bought the seal from the one person, gave it to the "regent" (or what ever he's called) were done with it.

Thoume
01-09-2005, 20:57
It's only from what I've read on the website. There's no telling how much it is for the hall after the cost of the sigil. I do hope that it is not going to be worth more than the sigil, otherwise it would probably take me until the end of the year (with college and everything else that may come around the corner) to get the platinum together for it...

Just think though; once you've got it, you'll be able to draw the attention of a potential recruit and bolster the size of the guild. I mean, come on, what else is there to draw their attention? Cape; check, Hall; check, Forum; check, but it is often overlooked by promoters, Active members; ...I think we'll leave that one out...

Wow... what can I say? That is a lot! I don't think I could suggest any prices other than suggest to get an offer from whoever it is your trading with and try to sell it for at least double it's usual price...

I've found one good item to sell; charr hides. They're free (form drops) and people are willing to pay 40g for one. In a single drop run near Piken Square I can get about 8-12 of them, selling them for about 360-480g.

I wonder what it is that makes them both high demand and high priced (when really they are not if sold to NPCs)? There could be a collecter that's giving away something worth more than that perhaps...

67,022g and rising... :)

03-09-2005, 16:13

Want to get the 60k now? I'll be on in a sec to do some more trading...

I've deleted the R/Me character. It's not that great a combo really. I'm considering filling the gap with a monk or some other class other than warrior or necro...

Thoume
05-09-2005, 21:25
No? ok...

Just wanted to post about this trade session with this other player from a few moments ago. I don't know whether to laugh, cry or bang my head against the computer screen, but imo it was the most supidest trade I've ever done on the game (mainly because there wasn't a trade in the end!)

'Player' (I won't use his/her character's name) spammed the local chat channel, wanting to buy dyes (all of them except orange). I offered to trade the yellow and green dyes I picked up from yet another drop run (which brought my total to about 72,000g). The conversation really begins when I ask how much he was offering... (stuff in brackets are notes, everything else is what was said)

Player: 130 (gold, he was too lazy to put a 'g' in...)

Player: Both (for both vails that is, not 130 each, which I hoped he would say :))

Me: Hang onÖ (checks trader, who quoted 170g for both)

Player: wich district

(Finds player at storage)

Player: 135 (in regards to my other message before asking what district I was in. That one of course! Otherwise I wouldnít have had answered that spam of an adÖ)

Me: For one? (Knowing that I would make 35g less profit if it was for both, but then...)

Player: 135 for both

Me: Because itís 170 for both at trader

Player: for buy for sell it is worth less ( :wtf: )

Me: Pardon?

Player: (in an attempt of explaining) to buy you pay 170 for both but you sell it you get less back zo I give you a reasonable price

(lol! so he's trying to lower the price because NPC traders buy items for less than they are normally sold... I don't think so...)

Player: didnít you now? (I missed that bit, as the spam in the trade channel bumped it up as I was typing)

Me: but I didnít buy them, and Iíll be getting a better profit from the trader if your price stands (I feel guilty for saying this now, I'm not a selfish bastard at heart, but business is business... edit: stop it, STOP IT! *Smacks himself on the wrist*)

Player: no you donít

Me: how?

Player: I donít want to explain bye

(trade session cancelled)

Me: deals off, thanks

(goes to trader, no more fuss)


So, what do you think? Was I on the right track or was I just being silly and should have gone with his/her offer?

No? ok, I'll stick with giving them to the NPCs or leave them to gather dust in storage...

It gets a bit boring when you're on the last mission but you can't beat it and are left to do solo drop runs all the time... oh well...

One thing that's in high demand that I can't seem to get is 'max dmg gold weapons'. Sure, I managed to get two (fairly) decent gold swords, yet they were not max dmg. Grrr!

Ended up handing them over to an NPC merchant for about 100ish each. My char doesn't use swords anyway...

Sylass
05-09-2005, 21:48
Last mission was the one with the 3 globes at the end? It's "a bit" of a pain, yes.

We could try to get a game started tomorrow. Maybe there are some players from this guild or my guild who'd like to join/help...

And don't give away dyes...keep them. ;)

Just finding the place is going to be the tricky bit though. I'm sure someone will find out eventually...

Have a guess...

Go on, have a guess...

...

No? ok, read the spoiler...

WE HAVE A GUILD HALL!!! WOOHOO!!!

Ahem, anyway. It seems that we may have to take recruiting outside of the forum and probaly get a few members in game.

Also, what would you say to a seperate forum for the guild? I don't mean on here, but to replace an old role playing forum I had for a couple of months. I dunno, it's up to you lot, but it would be fun to have! :)

The latter, but you can do Team Arena if you want. I just got lucky with my team. Of course, it was bumpy to start with as I had a l33t in the group, but as soon as we reached 7 wins we were almost unstoppable! lol

Thats a good tactic btw, using a different character 'skin' to be a healer, as they wouldn't go straight after you until they see a pattern emerging.

Good attempt btw!

Sure, ok. I was thinking about it because they had the fansite kit on the main website. Add photoshop to that and I'll some decent graphics for it!

*and there's only about 3-8 registered members on each!

WarSeer logo isn't really possible, I think...

I think I managed to beat your record...I knew I should stick with Dweya.

Well, I'd probably not believe this if someone would tell me, but out of all these wins, we only had 4 normal ones. The rest of the games were won flawless. :eek:

That was by far the single best team I've ever had the pleasure to play with. Started as a random comp arena one. :)

Of course they are all added to my friends list now, so if we ever need 10K faction, we just meet again. ;)

Thoume
13-09-2005, 21:10
Thats a thought...

As you'd no doubt be aware, in nearly every mission, save a few early ones, you are almost required to take a monk or two in your team. In the later missions they are near impossible to find sometimes. Just wondering though; what would happen if you had a team of 8 monks? (the most members you can have in a team in some of the later missions for those who haven't played)

Sylass
14-09-2005, 19:01
8 Monks, eh?

First thought was that you could heal each other for forever, so the team might be next to indestructable if the opponent team does not have a lot of interrupting skills...

...second thought was a mixed healer/protector team with smiting.

Staying together, maximizing the smiting effect from Aura of Balthazar, Symbol of Wrath while being healed/protected from damage...:skull:

A friend of mine got me into guild wars just before factions came out.
I was 2/3 of the way through the crystal desert when factions went live.
I've been buggering around in Cantha since then.

I'm in a guild already but if I'm online and you guys need an extra body I'd been happy to tag along. Only problem might be that I am GMT +10:00.

My primary characters are:
Sir Gilles lvl 20 W/Mo
Cyrus Darksun Lvl 17 Mo/El

30-05-2006, 08:33

Oxford

Yeah.

You need to go to Lions Arch and talk to the skills guy there. You can get a quest off him that lets you travel by ship to Cantha.

polymphus
31-05-2006, 03:20
Do you need to buy yhe original game to play factions? Because I was considering buying it, I like MMOs but the whole subscription fee thing (and the fact that it is.too.damb.addictive.) has kept me away from WoW. So yeah, do I need to the original to play factions?

Oxford
31-05-2006, 06:38
No it can function as a stand alone campaign set on the continent of Cantha. The original is set on the continent of Tyria. If you have both you can book passage on a ship and travel back and forth between the two.

a combo ive seen for a pure monk is usually ele/monk because then u get the energy regening skills of an ele and u still get all the monk skills. but if ur primary monk, then u have several options, basically up to u. u can go with ele for those glyphs and energy preserving skills if u need them and mesmer for pretty much the same reason that u can get energy from other people. warrior is the choice because u can pick up some really good defensive skills that will help u stay alive for longer. i also personally kno a monk/warrior who soloed underworld... but ill keep that secret to myself ;)

I'm shopping around for a new guild right now... I've been part of my current guild, Overclocker's Australia since day one, one of the founding members and was quickly upgraded to being an officer.

I donated fundage for our sigil and it was all good, as it is I'm the only of the originals left and the longest lasting.

Then I bought city of villains and got stuck into that and only poked my nose into GW every now and then.

About a month back I logged in and to my annoyance found I'd been demoted back to a standard pleb.

And thus since all my guild friends have more or less left and all the new peoples are more or less unfamiliar to me I've decided it might be time for me to find new pastures.

Let me know if there's any interest.

about 4 months down the line, that character is now lvl 20 and - of all secondaries - is a monk/ranger. At the time I used traps and bow attacks to stop warriors grinding me down (which they did a lot), but now I just run a bog standard healer build.

55 monk, right?


I'm getting Guild Wars within the next few weeks. Can anyone give me tips on what skills to take, good characters for beginners etc?
I think I posted something in another thread, I'll have a look...

Edit: nope, lost it...

My characters are; Derano Oron (lvl 20 Mo/R), Vorrstein Harthorn (lvl 20 W/Mo), Zanlamin Milner (lvl 20 Me/E), Oldoph Llang Vek (lvl 20 Rt/N), a Necro - forgotten the name (lvl 20 N/E), and Too Posh For Pvp (PvP Me/Mo). I usually keep a slot spare for PvP characters, but TPFP is occupying it atm.

Alliance battles... I've never gone back to RA and TA since they've brought this one in. Think of it as onslaught on UT2004 (think thats what it was), where you've got different points on the map that need to be captured. Having 2 teams of 12 players each (split into 3 groups of 4), it's just huge!

Should I get this game? I play WoW currently, but mostly because I've loved the WC universe and Blizzards storylines since WC2 was released. I did try Guild Wars when it was initially released on another person's computer, but I was not really in to MMORPGs at that time. I want something different to WoW. I'm getting a bit tired of "Go here, kill x of this" quests, and while I still love running around being a *****, a change would be nice.

So I put it to you, oh great and mighty ones - do I buy Guild Wars? It's either this, or City of Villains, and quite frankly, free is good (I assume GW is still free subscription?)

Well, that was going by the '/age' command in game. I think I made that post a little while after I started the character... :)


so whyd u go with ranger in the end?
Few reasons really. Firstly just to be different, as most monk secondaries are usually Mesmer (mainly for the spell mantra of recall) or Necromancer (for offering of blood). Monks can run easily on their own without a secondary if they wanted to, but energy managment is hard to obtain within the monk skill sets so the two spells above seem popular for that (in PvP that is, whether it's different for PvE I don't know...).

There are no popular builds for Mo/R (I think I noticed one on GuildWiki thought), so I'm sort of testing different builds as I go along.

Secondly because, as I mentioned earlier, getting ganged up on by warriors/assassins/rangers etc etc whilst trying to keep the rest of the party alive is not good, so things that can cripple them with like barbed trap and crippling shot (as an example, I don't use bow often) will help when trying to evade them. Serpent's Quickness is also useful as it recharges my healing spells quickly.


also i dont kno what 55 monk build means :p
More of an exploit imo, it's where you make a character with 5 superior runes of whatever and a -50HP Grim Cesta (to bring you're character down to about 55 health), and using different spells that effectivly make you invincible (GuildWiki article (http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/55_Monk)).

Yes, it's still free subscription. It is worth getting just to see whether you like it or not.

A lot of the 'quests' in PvE follow the "talk to w, talk to x, talk to y, speak with z for you're reward" formula, along with the example you gave. Although in the actual main 'missions' break away from the formula every now and again. There is no, unfortunately, no real room for proper in character role playing, unless you find a guild who likes to act in character. Half the time in towns you'll see half of the local chat filled up with "looking for group (lfg)" messages and the occasional trade ad that decided to avoid the trade channel.

It's big plus is the PvP side of it. It sort of like an FPS with some of the objectives and the teamwork involved. People have always wondered why you can only go up to lvl 20, and it's so that you can rely on a match that is balanced by how well you're team plays rather than relying on uber powerful individuals. Warriors can be quite tough with their high armour value, but they more often than not need a monk to keep them alive through healing and protection spells (Ritualists (Rt) can fill this role quite well, but monks are far better at it), and a Mesmer or an Elementalist can spike (where you use spells that can deal quick and massive damage) and/or hex (spells that pile negative modifiers on enemy characters) them to death.

Still, 'tis up to you... :)

Assassins may look cool, but they are very hard to play right. They have the same level of armour as rangers, so they can't hold a fight as long as a warrior can, but luckily they have several skills that can back them out quickly.

That or I never got to grips with them! :p

On a side note; w00t! Got full 15k armour for my Warrior! Well, it's two parts platemail and 3 parts dragon armour. Shows that I spend too much time on the game. :eek: :D

This is the old skool Granite Citidel kit btw, I'll try and get a pic of it tonight... :)

Also i have been thinking and I plan to retire from WoW and concentrate on Guild Wars this being the case we need to get a recruitment drive going here on the forums. The guild has capes, a lovely guild hall and the finest set of forums going. What we need is members i have de moted all officers for the moment seeing as none have been on for 1 month and Yorkie is the first of many new recruits, i want to keep the recruitment to the Forums at the moment so we get a good base of members. I realise this might be to much to hope for seeing as the opposite happened last time.

nice, congrats! :)

Black dye I take it? Sure does sell for a bit, but I'm saving the 3 I got from drops... :p

I think the most I had in one place at any time was when I sold all 61 jadeites I was saving for Luxon 15k monk armour. It seemed like a good idea at the time but I slowly didn't like the look of it, so from a mix of selling some of the jadeites to the trader and to another player I managed to bag 50k for them, which I used to finish off my warrior's armour. :)

The best I managed was a fair few months back rune farming outside of beetletun before they upped some of the drop rates. I got a Superior Vigour and a Superior Absorption within 10 minutes of each other. That was over 100k back when Sup Abs was actually WORTH something :angry:

I don't know how much Fur Squares go for nowadays, but farming charr hides, going to the collecter in Old Ascalon Ascalon City and selling the squares usually brings in a decent amount if you're stuck around Ascalon for some time. That or go begging... :p

We're a fledgling guild made up of a group of friends based in australia called The Order of the Chimaera (http://www.mpsguilds.com/OrderoftheChimaera). Our guild leader recently allied us with these guys http://thegeartrick.tripod.com/
I don't know that we'll accumulate much faction (Luxon BTW) but it should be fun.

Erm... unfortunately since the expasion farming has become a lot more difficult for the casual palyer (I know, I am one) one of the simplest farms (ettin farming out of beetletun in kryta) has been broken by the upping of the drop rates of Sup vigour and especially sup absorb. Sup vigours are still worth about as much as they used to be, but Absorbs aren't even worth a tenth of the old price :(. The expansion also fairly badly hurt fur farming because stacks of 10 are dropped on a semi regular basis by enemies around the place!

Oxford
27-06-2006, 01:21
Selling chitin fragments from devourers also used to be quite lucrative in the early post-searing game. They have nerfed farming across the board. If you kill the same monsters in the same area over and over again the likelihood of any sort of decent drop decreases.
I used to farm Scoundrels Rise and Talus Chute but there are simply no drops now. I'm lucky if I make 200 gold a run troll farming now. :(

Thoume
27-06-2006, 08:23
I try to farm in as many places as I can. It does seem however that some of the good spots are in factions now... :/ :)

Theres a route in Shing Jea called Saoshang Trail, that drops a few chitin shells. That area around Maatu Keep is a good place for gold, and my monk occastionally runs a route through Gates of Kryta.

My Guilds called the Shadow Knights of Hades, with Braveheart World Xi leading our alliance. We currently have over 4,000,000 faction and yesterday we slowly moved up from Seafarer's Rest to Leviathan Pits. I think we have been moved elsewhere but it would mean having to run to every other place I haven't got in the Jade Sea to find it! :p

There isn't much of an advantage with owning an outpost (except cavalon of course). You get a discount merchent and in some places a fireworks guy. 1,600g expert salvage kits and 400g expert identification kits shouldn't be overlooked, but then it's cheaper to get imperial commemerations/luxon totems to get them... :p
