    This isn't entirely true, since there were communities that rolled together on servers. For example, apparently pretty much all the remaining WAR players rolled on Jade Quarry, making that a PvP/WvW-centric server. A bunch of the Reddit PvPers rolled on a server together, but I don't remember which one.

    A few thousand RP'ers elected to all roll characters on Tarnished Coast (Piken Square for EU), so... there's been plenty of time for unofficial server types to form.

    I rolled on Tarnished Coast because I prefer the community typically associated with RP servers.

    Speaking of servers - is GitP on any one server in particular, or are we all fairly spread out? I'd like to actually play with people who I can communicate with outside the game, and who are fairly casual about things (as most of us seem to be).
    I'd also like to ask for a guild invite when someone gets the chance. Decatus.1734. I'm currently on Ehmry Bay, but I'd be willing to transfer somewhere else if we really have much of a presence.

    Just wait for the guesting feature to be implemented. It shouldn't take too long. Hopefully.

    It literally doesn't matter what server your home is outside of WvW, once guesting is in.

    The GitP guild is "officially" on Tarnished Coast, I'm pretty sure, and last I looked, a good amount of the roster is there.

    This seems to be the case. I went ahead and did a free server transfer, seeing as I didn't really have anything tying me to the server I was on. Just dinged 30 too...now I need to go grind out like 6 skill points to unlock an Elite skill.

    Yeah, most of the professions are a bit problematic sometime because they lack enough recipes to discover and require quite a bit resources. Yeah, going back to another starting area helps, so does trading with other people and the trading house being up will help too.

    how much compared to a decently high(level 40+) character’s wealth, is 3 gold?, I'm level 15 currently and only 3g away from being able to upgrade to the "collector’s edition" version of the game using the “trade gold for gems” thingy with the black lion trading, though it does seem odd they made it cheap(at least if 3g isn’t much at high levels) to earn it ingame.

    I had about 1g20s at 40. Most of which went into the trait manual. I haven't been doing much to expand my wealth, though. Selling unneeded craft mats could make a big difference, for example.

    I've never had a gold to my name at 35, 19 and 15. I break everythign down for mats, and dont sell anything. Trying to level six professions is stupid :). Focusing on just three (with one being chef), should help a bit.

    Those repair bills in the 30 dungeon can be nasty on Mesmer, not a ton of HP room for error :)

    Now that both my Mesmer and my Warrior are nearing level 11, I can't help but wonder what traits to focus on. I think I'll focus on Arms with my Warrior, who mostly uses a greatsword, and on Chaos with my Mesmer, who focuses on the staff.

    Heh, I'm sitting at 3g50s roughly. I have nothing to spend it on.


    If anyone is on Tarnished Coast, I would really really really appreciate all the copper/soft green logs/leather I could get. I can pay for it, or swap crafted items, or help with quests, jump puzzles, etc.

    I had a pretty amazing run in Ascalon Catacombs last night. We only had one person who refused to use the dodge mechanic, so we ended up clearing the place with only 2-3 deaths each (except for that one person, who probably had something in the order of 8-10).

    All of those deaths were on trash, too. They actually listened to me about the mechanics for the Romeo&Juliet fight, and we cleared it trivially without anyone dying, despite me being the only person who had done the dungeon before.

    The Ranger second Torch skill is called Bonfire, which is an eight second duration fire combo field that inflicts Burning and deals 256 damage.

    The Mesmer second Torch skill is called Phantasmal Mage, which summons a Phantasm with a ranged attack that deals 363 damage and inflicts Confusion on foes and Retaliation to allies.

    Looks like torches could be decent weapons for mesmer and rangers then, what do you think would be a good one hand weapon to pair with them?
    axes look a little bit better then swords for the ranger, and I haven't played a mesmer yet, so I don't have much of an opinion on what are good for those.
    edit: also, has anyone here tried out the hunter's call ability of the ranger to see how fast the attacks happen?, looking at the wiki it looks like it could deal a huge amount of damage, at least if the attacks from it are fast.

    That's the ability that gives Quickness, right? Cause it's ridiculously fast when combined with a shortbow. 3+ arrows a second quick.

    first warhorn ability for ranger gives a DoT(that looks like it has great damage), while the second boosts nearly all combat stats.
    And aye, having a bow as your second weapon looks like it would be very good combined with the warhorn and a one hand weapon as your other weapon.

    Yes. It's actually better with Longbows though, as you can combo it with a whole bunch of other procs to make your rapid-fire ability do mega damage.

    Warhorns are kinda meh to be honest. I'm currently using Sword/Dagger, which has phenomenal damage output and the dagger abilities let you kite people, which is cool beans. The only thing I'd probably consider over Sword/Dagger is Sword/Torch, since you can AoE with the Torch and then shoot arrows over and combo without needing other people.

    Anyone on here playing a Thief? I just hit level 20 and I'm still not sure what weapon setup I like the best. A lot of the lower levels I was using D/D with Death Blossom or whatever just cutting through things. Once I hit the level 15 area though things were dealing FAR too much damage for that to viable. I switched to P/D and its night and day different. Any melee mob is easily killed since I can just use the attack that puts you into stealth to make some distance and then hit it from stealth with the rapid fire pistol attack that stacks 5 bleeds on the target. I also liked P/P since Black Powder (the aoe blind) skills is incredibly powerful. Even just dropping it on yourself and shooting through it at things blinds them which makes you incredibly survivable, especially against things with slower attack speeds.

    What I'm not sure about, is how to stack my gear currently. I have a mishmash of Condition, Power and Precision gear and since I'm a leatherworker I'm not sure which one I should be focussing on for a mainly P/D build. A lot of my damage is autoattack, but the autoattack (and sneak attack) both cause a bleed. So should I focus more on Condition? Or power and precision?

    A few of my thoughts on the game.

    Cloth and leather have been the toughest crafting materials to acquire, so I'm salvaging all light and medium armors. Metal ore and wood can be gathered from the plentiful nodes around the environment, so I'm posting or vending any weapons or heavy armor.

    In your account storage, there's a tab for all crafting items, so horde away. You can deposit collectables into it from anywhere through the gear icon in your inventory, so use it frequently to make the most of your limited space.

    I think it's a good time to release new MMO's since a lot of players are looking for a new game. If they can get all their features running with capacity to spare, they could get a good share of the market.

    Indeed. The unlimited multi-character item-storing thingy is quite nice for people who wants to collect low-level crafting material for their high-level chars. While there is always a challenge if you go back to low-level area, the piazzaz of discovery just isn't there.

    HOWEVER, were you to run an alt, you can make said alt gather lots and lots of low-level goodies while leveling it up.

    I really can't decide about my Mesmer's alternate weapon set. My primary one is Staff, and I'm doing well with it, dropping Chaos Storms, exploding illusions and generally throwing a lot of boons and conditions around. I tired sword + pistol for my second one, but it doesn't seem to work as well as I thought it would... maybe Scepter + Focus will be better after all.
