ANyone got Guild wars? Lets discuss.
Yes, its a fun game, it looks good, it has a great community and its free.
None of the expansions are as good as the original, the game requires that you have a very good understanding of skills and builds, its not very good for solo players and its very hard to get into without help (in the expansions).
Very true. Can't wait to get the eye of the north and night fall. Want those heroes. Very useful. Right now i'm using an Assassin Elemental, tis my second character but i'm having trouble. The builds are a little complicated, you know what with the combos.
I'm scratching my head in confusion and wonder. 'sigh'
How is Ass/Ele useful? Assassin's quickly use a crapload of energy and you need to pool it again before being able to unleash any sort of damage. Elementalist skills require a lot of energy and sometimes cause exhaustion. If anything, Ass/Me would be miles better. I'd switch secondary class if I were you.
Too late for that. But assassin elemental are useful for mass attacks. From what i've seen with one character, it is incredibly amazing for farming. But your right. It would have been better to go with mesmer. Grrrr! need better armor. only have about 7k.
Lol so what about you guys?

I stopped playing a long time ago (1.5 years).
My original character was a Wa/Ra with Fissure (Obsidian) armor and my friend deleted him.
My current existing high-level (gear-wise) character is a Ra/Me (originally a Ra/Ele and that's how I learned through the hard way that anything non-necro that has ele as 2nd class is mostly pure fail), often changing for Ra/Mo (for retributing pet). That ranger has 15k (elite) druid and studded leather armor, with 5 green bows (maybe 6). I mostly played on spike teams (with Drago's Flat Bow for extra dmg and range) with Punishing Shot as elite skill.
I also have a level 12 monk with elite ascetic (now called monk star) armor (all dyed black) and 4 green items. He heals better than most level 20s.
I also have some of the rarest mini pets in the game. >.>
I think my most prized ones are gold Asura, gold Prince Rurik and Gwen.
I can give you some of my money if you want. I had 750 platinum left when I last logged out.
Dude, i am your servant for ever. I mean, the most i have is a 7 platinum and 5 of them was given to me to buy a 70 armor by the guild leader. But I never had the chance to buy anything because i wanted to save up to get the materials for the armor. lol I still have 10 gloves and 25 chest armor.
And if what you say is true about the ele as a secondary character as a pure fail, then i have to get a new character. And your right, i just turned lvl 20 and i still didn't use anything regarding elemental. It's pure assassin techniques. And it works very well without any elemental magic since i found a good build.
Damn, and i tried so hard to get where i was too.

You know you can switch your secondary, right?
Mesmer as secondary for a fast class like assassin or ranger works well is because of the energy steal and silencing you can achieve.
I didn't know that. wow. How do i do that though?
EDIT: nvm i know how. Gotta do some missions for that stuff i suppose. Ah well. I also sent you a pm Jyuu, got a little too excited. my bad lol
