Guild Wars

Heres the obligatory thread for GW, and the obligatory screenie of my chara. Feast in the sight of her glorious sluttiness!



The game is dang pretty and not resource greedy at all. I can crank all the details up, whack on 4x AA and still smooth as silk. :D

Im quite happy I can put the settings to make the game play and control like a MMORPG. I wasnt too fond of the diablo-style controls, wasd all the way for me, baby! :D

Anyone else playing this? Anyone wanna make an official Magicbox guild? :D

Im playing

lvl 10 (almost 11) Mo/Warrior (Axes)
lvl 6 Ele/Nec

Its pretty cool, but also really sad that i got halfway through the game (lvl 10) without grouping with players. Or talking to any. If you ask me, this is Diablo3, which isnt bad though.

I dont like how you click on an enemy and u run towards them though, or the lack of jump, but other than that, not bad. I usually hate instances, but in GW they are somehow FUN! Who would have thought to make instances fun?

Blizzard was stupid to let these guys go.

Personally if they took instances from GW, and character customization from GW, and Graphics from GW, and put it in WoW, it could be the best game EVER.

Im all for a Magicbox guild. My current guild is gay, and i havent ever talked to them

Well if we get enough people interested, we can form one. ;)

About the point and click thing, you are right, thats annoying, I disabled the single-click attack and the mouse run. Now it plays like any normal MMORPG.

IVe been playin in the instances too, feels like a solo player mix between diablo and a MMORPG, only I love that it has the open-endedness of MMORPG games with tons of quests littered all over the place. They even have those annoying "collect so many items and Ill give you something in exchange" quests, which is pretty neat.

Playing in coop in groups should be a lot more fun.

My system isnt much worse, 9800xt and a 3.0 pentium (wish it was AMD64)
Anysways im maxed with 0 slowdown. Its becuase the way the game is set up, there are never too many models around at once, BRILIANT!

So far we have 3 guild members, how many do we ned to form a guild?

Ive heard this game doesnt have a monthly fee. Is it true? And how is the game holding up with cheating? Strict i hope...

Newsflash, they didn't let them go... they left Blizzard when the Vivendi Universal deal went down... at least I think.... but a lot of people left Blizzard and I think these guys where one.... kudos to them for making a game... I'll have to pick it up soon... ::grumbles something about bills::

The fun thing about Guild Wars is that the focus is on obtaining skills and doing quests, not leveling. In fact, the level cap is set at level 20, and you can easily make it there in 2 days.

Unlike other games, you dont get skills from leveling, you get em from completing quests and doing tasks, so theres a real incentive to go out there and complete as many quests as possible.

Also, theres clothes! And their weird crafting system. Since armor and clothes actually look GOOD at you, theres also a big incentive to get the coolest looking clothes to wear, an d maybe dye it to your favorite colour.

The point of this game is actually end-game content, so a low level cap isnt bad, but good.
