Carrie's Gameplay

Postby psychedelicsim » February 11th, 2014, 3:08 pm

Travis and I got each other Guild Wars 2 for an early Valentine's Day present. We've been having a blast! You basically create your own story for your character. There are quests, but it doesn't follow the normal quest line style of other MMO games and takes a little longer to level up. There is also no monthly subscription fee. Some of the game play reminds me of WoW. It's definitely different in a lot of ways, but I got used to it very quickly and have really enjoyed my adventure so far.

This is my toon on the Fort Aspenwood server. Her name is Psychedelicsim and she's a Sylvari Mesmer. She can heal herself and create clones that help her fight.

This is one of the quest areas I'm currently in, the Village of Astorea. There are merchants to sell your extra inventory to. The hearts show the different people that you can help.

Along with doing some questing, I've been working on learning my crafting (professions).

My toon is a chef and artificer. The food and dyes help with gaining XP, health, etc. and as an artificer, she can make tridents, staffs, etc. for more powerful spells.

I also earned a skill point (like achievement points in WoW) so I was able to use it to learn a new spell.

I figured out the bank system too. The first group of slots are free, but every new one costs gems that you earn while you're doing quests.

Your Collections inventory is available at the bank or at any crafting station. You can place items there to share with your other toons.

The Grove is one of the main cities. It's such a beautiful place!

Chopping down a tree in Caledon Forest. This gives me green wood logs to turn into planks for use in crafting staffs, tridents, etc.

One of the challenges in each area is getting to the Undiscovered Vistas, which count toward completing the city, village, etc. They are marked by 2 red triangles on the map. Using the mushrooms to get to the top of the building for this particular vista proved to be quite a challenge. I'm almost done with completing The Grove. I just have 2 more vistas to discover.

Success! Reaching a vista and viewing the cinematic gives you XP too.

During each cinematic, you basically see a beautiful view of different parts of the city.

I started a new toon yesterday, a Human Ranger (hunter) named Taarvisia. She has a pet cat that fights along beside her.

The game really looks like fun, Carrie. Maybe someday I'll be in a place where I don't have to worry about online data...sigh.

I'll wait. I already have two games that need updating. I plan to send my computer with Jonny when he goes to Judi's one of these days, so he can update SC5 for me, while on their broadband. It will probably need to be when he goes for at least one overnight, since it will take hours to do. Then, once he logs on there for me, I SHOULD be able to play it offline, here. I'm looking forward to that!

The other one that needs updating is the Need for Speed one. I couldn't play that one very well, anyway, due to the lag, and it uses a LOT of download data, so I probably won't worry about updating that one, for now.
