As a necro in pvp, the worm summon saved me... 2 players ganged up on me and I was going to die, ( i had placed my worm somewhere else as the fight is moving because I'm running away) and the second skill after you've placed the worm is to teleport to it (which destroys it) so I activated that and got away cleanly. Also, I was able to solo the bosses by laying down traps with the staff
as the sword/dagger thief i can teleport from the path below clocktower up onto the cap point if an enemy is on it, and press the ability again to port away, i got a clip of it that will be in my thief vid
I'd like to see some underwater stuff in SPvP, just for the hell of it. I also felt a bit vulnerable at times as an engineer in SPvP, except the Elixir gun really helped.
[QUOTE=Newbienice99;35774723][video=youtube;rzzR3oHaI0o]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzzR3oHaI0o[/video][/QUOTE] is that me on the top left?
[QUOTE=mickers;35776192]i didnt really try for dmg, i did some but it wasnt much, was a guardian in a pvp one time took us forever to kill him cus of all the heal abilitys. [url]http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3a10009amf9g9omk2d00upf77797k7n7tij[/url] i used somthing similar to this the tome has a full heal to all nearby allies, and skill one is a non stop aoe heal that u can place on the floor [editline]1st May 2012[/editline] i think my ideal 5v5 team would be dagger thief, 2x hammer/sword warrior fire ele support guardian[/QUOTE] [url]http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3ab6g09amgmf9oml10000a077797k7n7tijir[/url] Mine was in line with that except I was only level 20~ with those except for the elite skill, which I couldn't take off. I used the sword and shield to double as chasing people to try to finish them of, and to get behind people do push them into friendlies with skill 5, then keep them there with staff skill 4. In WvW I just happened to do a fair amount of damage, but that's probably considering how no one had many traits(and less had higher than me).
i didnt try WvW or pve this beta i think thats what ill do next one, and a bit more recording on my thief , didnt really bother binding the 7 8 9 skills but will next time [editline]1st May 2012[/editline] i think i have 40 mins of thief pvp footage tried to switch to bow for a bit and sword dagger, didnt use pistols though i didnt like them. would you guys like me to annotate some of the things i do when fighting?
[url]http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3460003n79h63q4590u0p0fe1f31m1n2b2e[/url] This setup for PvP for the warrior was fucking insane. If you timed everything right you could have people down to 1/3~ish of their health (with a crit or two) before they could even move with all the knock downs and immobilizes i had. Just running around with that I probably got around 9000 glory by the end of the weekend. Was really, really fun
[url]http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3470003n43m2794500uau00f4f81l1p2e2h2l[/url] i cant remember my warrior build exactly but im sure there was a trait to occasionally give me health was sitting at around 28khp in pvp
I've totally changed who I want to play as because of all the experimenting I did on the weekend. I'm going Human Warrior, probably sword/shield and rifle.
[QUOTE=mickers;35774782][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viMo-o5zKUw[/media] before going on my thief i tried out some ele pvp. its very fast and you either die really quick or annihilate everyone[/QUOTE] I love it! I love Ele and I love the music! [editline]30th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Vaught;35774978]So what server will everyone be flooding for release? Seems like there was a lack of communication here and everyone flying anywhere was the preferred choice :v[/QUOTE] I agree. Next time (BWE2) we need to communicate better on which server we are going to choose. We need to get everyone on that steam group, we should all get on the voice chat. There are two servers we should pick, not five. Then we shouldn't switch in the middle of it and only notify some people that we did this.
ty bullet, next beta ill record some more ele footage for you , i have a lot of thief stuff on my hard drive , got a 9 min vid atm just need to add music, do you want me to add some text for why im doing certain things in the battle?

Maybe helpful for some people who aren't as experienced with those type of classes. Although I played a lot of the Elementalist and I must admit I never thought that it would be one of my favorite classes. Before the beta I was positive I would create a ranger as my main, but now I'm really thinking about changing that to Elementalist. I absolutely loved that class so much and the versatility of it.

so hard to choose music for this vid

When I played with a 2h hammer warrior in PVP the control was insane. I could easily ruin a fight for the other team if I timed everything right by knocking back like 5+ people at a time.
Since GW2 takes out the trinity system. How do PVE bosses work? Does the boss target whoevers doing the most damage? and healing is just done by the individual and with some assistance from all(?) or just some of the classes.
i think its quite random or nearest person gets hit, i didnt try any pve bosses in beta though.

With that, they should aim at large groups rather than individuals. But concerning smaller bosses, like the white rabbit event last night, I couldn't see shit so I can't tell you what it did.
The one thing i see being a problem with bosses and such at the moment is that ranged so far seem to be much, much, much more favoured. In the final event this beta weekend it was insanely apparent that melee were completely useless against all of the moas and shit and i'm sort of afraid that's also going to be the case with some of the bigger boss fights in the game

Other than that, I got destroyed. [editline]30th April 2012[/editline] Finally found someone selling a Gwen doll for 18e, 15 HoM points now :D
[QUOTE=jordguitar;35772165]Ok, I did not do much in questing but I think it is safe enough to say this: It is like arenanet took all the good stuff about MMO's and improved on it and took all the "I wanted this to work so much why does it suck" stuff and fixed it and put it all into one nice little package and gave it to us. There is one thing I dont like and that is the exchanging gems for gold. Here is what I posted on the gw2 forums:[/QUOTE] I exchanged some gems for gold and it is fine if you ask me. Since if you do it too much you'll get less and less money. I got 2 3 silver for 50 gems at first but then it said I'll get 2 silver and 50 copper for 50 gems.
You know, one huge issue that we didn't run into since we all trusted each other as a guild, is that it's IMPOSSIBLE to securely trade items. There's no item-for-item trading system at all.
how often do you see item for item trading in the first place in mmos its almost always item for money, and the marketplace already accomplishes that i dont disagree though, not having a trading system was kind of awkward
