So, I just picked this up on Sunday (BestBuy had it in stock...woot!)
Anyway, fired it up and logged in.
First thing I noticed, I need to upgrade my rig
(which is pretty good right now) to take advantage of all the graphic settings. Very anxious to do that.
Rolled a Charr Thief.
Combat is VERY different, but very very entertaining. Honestly, I thought I would absolutely hate to have to 'dodge', but I actually quite like it.
Combat takes some getting used to so I am still learning how everything works. For example, my main attack (button 1 by default), when I hover over it, it lists several different attacks and I am not quite sure when/how they work or are used...little confusing.
It DEFINITELY is different from traditional MMO's, but so far, it is refreshing. There is a learning curve, but thats cool...
I tried out PvP (I am a big time PvP'r...PvE is meh for me, but i still enjoy it).
I was floored when I saw all the different items you can get for PvP. Its like two different games really. PvP and PvE. Did a few matches last night and so far, after a few hours playing, i like it. I like that you cant just steamroll somebody due to gear difference. Combat is actually challenging and entertaining.
I tried to queue up for WvWvW, but I had to log after waiting about 10mins because it was full. Definitely want to try that out.
I tried a Thief and Ranger. Both are fun. Want to try a Necro and Mesmer.
BTW, can you only have a total of 5 character slots across all the servers?
