I'm a long time WoW player. Currently only playing retail and raiding Naxx, but sometimes it's good to play something else. When GW2 came out I played for a couple of weeks and then returned to WoW. This has happened to me with a dozen other MMO's. A while back I had some WoW fatique and needed something else as a backup. It's safe to say that GW2 is the best option out there. It's casual friendly, it looks amazing and it has a good story. But now I'm at the point I'm a bit lost and need some help. The only reference I have is WoW when it comes to gearing and moving forward in the game and on those compartments you simply cannot compare these two MMO's.
So here's the situation. I decided to start all over again and start with a warrior. I am now lvl 80 and bought full Berserker gear with karma. I finished the core game and am now well into the HoT storyline. How do I move forward in this game gearwise? All I know is to attend the raids, kill bosses, hope for my loot to drop and spend DKP. That's what keeps me going. That constant desire to show up in hopes of getting another piece of gear, killing new bosses and advacing to more difficult raids. But in GW2 I now have a full exotic set, that as far as I know is good enough for end game content like lower tier fractals. So what goals are left? What am I supposed to do now? Is all that's left finding ways to obtain Ascended gear, complete masteries and maps and try to obtain dyes and outfits for looks? Or am I overlooking something that could keep me going? I was also wondering if it's worth doing all the LW chapters. I need 200 gems for every chapter which is a bit expensive as I don't have mountains of gold. For the icebrood saga for example I only have the last 2 available. All the other chapters have to be bought. That's a lot of gems.
Like I said, all I know is how this works in WoW, so for this MMO I need to adjust my mindset. But after so many years of WoW it's a bit hard to do. I hope you can help me clear this up a bit for me. What can I do to keep me going forward and are all the LW chapters worth spending gems on or just a select few with good gear at the end?
Thx in advance
