    even after level 80 you can still earn xp, everytime you would get a level you instead get a skillpoint ^^

    But anyhow if you complete all zones with all challenges you have about 90 or more then you can spend

    No, no. The four elementalists lay down their combo fields - "Earth! Wind! Fire! Water!..." and then a warrior tears the heart out of a nearby enemy, and chucks it through the fields while yelling "...Heart!". It collects all of the surrounding power and becomes a ruinous comet of death.

    Out of curiosity, what is everyone's opinion of:

    -the Warhorn while being used with Warrior

    -the dual Axes while being used with Warrior

    -the dual Swords with Warrior

    -Greatsword with Warrior

    ? I find the Warhorn rather useless, while I like using the Swords, because of all the bleed damage... it's glorious. However, I also like jumping in and going wild with the Axes and Greatsword, so I want to know the opinions of the playgrounders with warriors.
    please note that incoherent posting is incoherent.

    I go sword n board with my warrior. That extra armor is nice for tanking, especially with a Knight set.

    My warrior is(Note that I haven't goten past 20~ in PvE and a bit of sPvP, with no W3) sword and axe. I can get the sword bleeds and jumping, while still having the spinning. I didn't like the other combos.
    GS though I think is considered one of the better weapons in the game. Mostly because of 100blades and its 'bull rush + 2' approach, but I haven't actually looked at it out side of a PvP setting where I don't like it too much because either you invest your ultilities in keeping the person there or they walk out it because it's AoE is cone.

    Just wanted to pass this along. It seems that the majority of the hacking has been due to repeat usage of passwords. Have not been able to find any one that had a individual email account, with a strong unique password that got hacked, but the Authentication might be useful for some.
    Source

    Quote Originally Posted by Mike Lewis

    As part of our ongoing commitment to security in Guild Wars 2, I am pleased to announce that we are making a mobile two-factor authentication solution available for beta testing, effective immediately.

    Mobile two-factor authentication is an alternative means of securing your Guild Wars 2 account, and like e-mail authentication, is optional but strongly encouraged. Rather than sending you an e-mail when unauthorized login attempts occur, the game (or any of our online web sites) will prompt you for a six-digit number any time you log in to a Mobile Authenticator-protected account. Using a freely available app on three major smartphone platforms – iOS, Android, and Windows Phone – you can obtain the correct six-digit number unique to your account. These numbers change every 30 seconds and can only be used once; this ensures that without your mobile device, an attacker would not be able to compromise your Guild Wars 2 account.

    Please be advised that this feature is currently in beta and we are actively working to get it up to our standards of quality. Use of this feature should be considered “at your own risk” until we have completed the beta phase. We have already identified two major improvements to the feature that we will complete before releasing this system for general use:

    To increase security of your account, unlinking the Mobile Authenticator will require additional six-digit codes.

    We will be introducing an option to “remember my current network” so that you will not have to authenticate every login from trusted environments.

    Of course we will also be interested in your feedback on this feature, and will make sure to take into account your suggestions and opinions during final development.

    Setting it Up:
    Steps will be associated with either [Computer] or [Mobile] for where the step is taking place.

    [Computer] Navigate to https://account.guildwars2.com/account/security/totp and log in with your Guild Wars 2 credentials.
    - If you are redirected to the Security home page (https://account.guildwars2.com/account/security), be sure to add /totp back into the URL.
    [Computer] Identify the correct app for your mobile platform. Here are some suggestions:
    - Google Authenticator for iPhones and Android.
    - Windows Authenticator for Windows Phones.
    [Mobile] Download the application to your mobile device.
    [Computer] Click ‘Next’ on the Account Management page
    [Mobile] If your version of the Mobile Authenticator app has the ability to scan QR codes, use it to automatically scan the QR code displayed in Account Management [Computer] and skip to step #7.
    [Mobile] If your version of the Mobile Authenticator app does not have the ability scan QR codes, or that ability is not working with the QR code displayed, enter your credentials manually.
    - “Account Name” is the same as your Guild Wars Account Name.
    - “Key” is the secret code displayed in Account Management [Computer].
    - Select “Time Based” and not “Counter Based”
    - Select ‘Add’.
    [Computer] In the field below the QR code, enter the six-digit code now displayed from your Mobile Authenticator app [Mobile].
    Click ‘Next’.

    For more information, please refer to this Knowledge Base article – http://en.support.guildwars2.com/app...tail/a_id/9238

    Thank you in advance for your support, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on this initiative.

    The main purpose of the warhorn is team pvp, where its buff and debuff are very useful - last time I checked, a very common team pvp weaponset for a warrior was rifle + axe/warhorn. Other than that, it's usually better to have a different offhand or use a two-hander.

    Bots have bothered me less in GW2 than other games as I don't consider the gameplay to start at max level like in WoW or after you've accumulated a certain amount of ISK in Eve. It would be nice if they'd get rid of it but judging off the continued presence of bots in other games I bet its not really going to happen.

    On the plus side, banning botting accounts is a huge win for ANet. They have no monthly fee and I assume bots have no use for the gem store so every repeat offender is more money in their pockets they can spend on adding content to the game.

    Arh, the sweet, sweet smell of a fresh character slot. Well worth the crafting materials I funneled into TP and then into gems.

    Awesome:
    25 Asura Engineer
    21 Charr Warrior
    15 Sylvari Ranger

    Not so awesome:
    14 Human Necromancer
    14 Norn Elementalist

    Tried a Mesmer, but retired them at 15ish (really not enjoying the call until I got greatsword/staff, but still wasn't ideal)

    So, what next?

    edit: Bots
    I hate bots and report them whenever I see them. Given the one gold-selling in-game mail I have received, it would be much much cheaper to buy gold then convert that to Gems, as opposed to buying Gems directly from Arenanet. This drives up the Gem price, which is bad for people who want to trade legit in-game gold for Gems :(

    Isn`t GW 2 from NC Soft and don`t they have a bad Rep for killing games before their time ?

    Note though that City of Heroes came out before Guild Wars 1 and was just shutdown. Granted that's still over 8 years for a game, which is pretty damn good I'd say.

    Don't worry, the game won't shut down for several years at least. Unless some major screw up happens, of course! But that's terribly unlikely.

    So, is there anything that's really worthwhile in the Halloween update? Most of the stuff seems either limited duration or ridiculously farm heavy.

    Mad King's Clock Tower is one helluva jumping puzzle. Very fun, but pretty heavy on trial-and-error gameplay (especially if you get someone who sneaks in a speed boost, or max-height Charr/Norn). Haven't had a chance to play with anything else in the Mad King's Realm.

    The Memoir Scavenger Hunt is pretty fun for a scavenger hunt; not sure if we know what the reward at the end is.

    Mad king's clock tower is only really difficult because of the mass of people jumping around you.

    From that puzzle, I got an exotic Mad King's shoes, so currently trying to figure out how to obtain the rest.

    Ya I was doing alright on the clock tower, then started doing worse and worse, getting angrier and angrier. Took a break and going to have to go back some time to try again.

    I finished the 13 (or so?) pages and turned it in for the complete book. The stats were the same as the current slot, just minus the nice gem I had put on there. Is there more?

    There's two PvP modes in the Mad King's Realm (neither of which I found very fun, since the rules popup is pretty vague on how they work) and the Mad King's Labyrinth, which is good for farming halloween events and mobs (also has two chests you can open each day).

    We also just got Ascent Into Madness, a dungeon consisting of 10% trash mobs, 5% platforming, and 85% wailing on Mad King Thorn. Easily repeatable, and has a reward chest at the end so people are farming it hardcore whenever they can avoid the DR code.

    Getting the thread back up for great justice!

    Currently only have one character at level 30, a human ranger by the name of Jyhmes Attrap on the European server Aurora Glades.

    If anyone wants to join me there or knows anyone who wants to try out the free trial for Guild Wars 2 and wants to join me (I'm all willing to help you out), shoot me a PM.
