In the Shadow of Dragons Legends Become Real

For generations, strife and chaos raged across Tyria as the great races competed and warred against each other. Then the dragons awoke. The all-powerful Elder Dragons rose from beneath earth and sea, wreaking havoc on a global scale. Great cities crumbled before their might. Coastlines flooded. Lush forests burned. Tyria was forever altered. Now, the undead legions of the deathless dragon Zhaitan surge across the land, hungry for the destruction of the free races of Tyria: the Charr, a ferocious race of feline warriors; the Asura, magical inventors of small size and great intellect; the Norn, towering shapeshifters from the frigid north; the Sylvari, a mysterious race of mystical plant folk; and the Humans, an embattled but resilient people. The time has come for the free races to stand together against the rising tide of evil. Magic, cold steel, and the deeds of heroes will determine the fate of Tyria.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of the Extra Content Only July 6, 2013
By Alec
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Digital Deluxe
UPDATED 6-28-2014

If you're planning to buy the game and are wondering if the extra $20 for the Digital Deluxe version is worth the money, I would recommend against it for the reasons listed below.

The first thing you should know is that you can add the "Digital Deluxe" upgrade to your account later, through the in-game gem store. You're not forever giving up the extras by purchasing the regular version of the game, so it is safe to wait and then decide if the goodies are worth it.

Summary of the extras:

Banker Golem: sure, it's nice to have 14 days (it's no longer just 5 days) of "anywhere bank access" on every new character. However, because the game allows inexpensive, instant travel, and because you can access your bank at any crafting station (with stations in nearly every zone), being able to access the bank "out in the wild" is nearly pointless: you can just teleport back to a spot close to a bank access point, then teleport back to a spot a few seconds' run from where you were. It took me a year after making my first characters to find a situation where I wanted to use my banker golems, and even then it just made things slightly more convenient.

Mistfire Wolf: this summon spell is an "Elite" spell, which does not unlock until you're level 30. The wolf is useful for some extra firepower when you are going to take on a tougher foe, or as an "oh, crap" button. However, you can only have one Elite spell in your toolbar at any one time, which means you must forego having any other elite skill in that slot if the wolf is active.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Fun & Addictive' doesn't begin to describe GW2 August 27, 2012
By BeccaM
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Digital Deluxe
I've played MMOs going all the way back to Ultima Online. EQ, EQ2, Asheron's Call, World of Warcraft, Star Wars Galaxies (left before the big expansion), Anarchy Online, Eve, Horizons-Istaria, Dark Age of Camelot, Star Trek, Star Wars: The Old Republic... You get the idea.

Admittedly, GW2 has the problems and bugs endemic to first launches, and to see them during the Early Access phase comes as no surprise. Players are reporting some bugged Dynamic Events (DEs). Guilds are pretty messed up at present, mostly with people being unable either to join or to assign their characters to represent a given guild. The auction market is down at the moment, as is the Wiki help system (8/27). Also appear to be some issues with the online registration system.

Anyway, if you want a less buggy game to play, wait a few weeks or so. Personally, I don't care because this has been the most fun I've had playing a MMO in more years than I care to admit. It's as if the designers tried to come up with nearly every detail that annoyed players in the past and deal with them differently.

For example, there's no competition for resource nodes. If it's there for you, it's there for everybody -- but only you see that it's been exhausted if you went ahead and mined for copper or chopped down a tree.

There's no kill-stealing. Everybody who helps kill something gets credit, and everybody can get loot off the same body, depending on random chance. There's incentive to jump in and help someone in trouble, or to resurrect them if they've fallen.

The dynamic events don't require people to create a pre-made group. Anybody can just join in, and the event will automatically change to become harder or easier depending on how many folks are present.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bait and Switch August 29, 2012
By Anon
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Digital Deluxe
Edit:

At first, this game was amazing. It was the ideal choice for anyone looking to get away from the standard grindy MMO. It was a breath of fresh air that was well worth the one time price.

Fast forward to today.

Guild Wars 2 has done nothing short of a "bait and switch" for it's casual/target market.

Here are the reasons I purchased the game:
[...]
and
"Here's what we believe: If someone wants to play for a thousand hours to get an item that is so rare that other players can't realistically acquire it, that rare item should be differentiated by its visual appearance and rarity alone, not by being more powerful than everything else in the game. Otherwise, your MMO becomes all about grinding to get the best gear. We don't make grindy games -- we leave the grind to other MMOs."

-Mike Obrien, President of Arenanet

I purchased this game because I am a college student, employed, and have a life outside of my computer. From their advertisements and statements, this game was suppose to be the MMO built for casual players. Where one could walk away from for a period of time, then once they get back on, still be able to experience all the content. Stats weren't an issue, legendary weapons were the EXACT same stats as exotics. As seen in the statement above, if someone wants to sink hours and hours into something, they get an awesome looking item, but it's not more powerful. Regardless if you feel this is how it should be, this is how they marketed it.

So what did they do Nov 15th? Implement a new tier of gear with more powerful stats, that are required in order to participate in deeper levels of thier new dungeon.

To provide a little insight.
