    They will give you no numbers of population. People still play though

    Just bear in mind it's not much of a multiplayer game. It's fully soloable as it uses private instances rather than a persistent world like GW2

    I wouldn't say a lot, but there are a handful of people usually around

    You will still find many players at major locations like trading hub Kamadan and PvP starting point the Great Temple of Balthazar. But when you play the story-line missions and visit small outposts, you will find yourself often alone there. The time that you could shout LFP Mission+bonus in any outpost to quickly find a PUG (group) is long gone.

    This has been somewhat mitigated by the central cooperative starting point Embark Beach, but does not change the fact that most of the once active player base moved on to games like Guild Wars 2.

    Oh, and by the way: The majority of the still active players seem to have moved to the American territory servers, even the European players. So when you find out that everything is empty, check which territory you are in.

    Ascalon Will Prevail!

    For selling stuff realize that many things are not valued anymore (random r9 weapons, dyes) while other things are grossly over priced (Windwalker Insignia...).
    Just don't want you to stand in kamadan for 3hrs trying to sell a r9 15>50 OS feathered longbow for 5k lol.

    Google Kamadan Trade Chat if you want to find a site that records what people are selling stuff at. Can even enter searches.

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

  • ok guys thank all of you u helped me alot. i think i will give it a try. the best game iv ever played see ya ;)

    The game is not abanded,but it is also not active. I sometimes play it and it is required to play solo. If you go for the full set and start in nightfall you should have somewhat decent hero team in relatieve short time. Keep in mind that when leveling you often can take mostly henchman. A full hero team that is not optimized is meh

  • yes i would start with nightfall to pick up my heroes but then i want to go to cantha its my favorite campaigne.

    megastorm come send some cops to me i want a good fight hahahah ACAB and u 2 ;)

    I still play the game on occasion. It's still fun and very doable even if you play with no people. Feel free to hit me up sometime and i'd be more than happy to run through the campaigns with a fresh character.

  • hey mate thanks for the invite. i will write when i have the game maybe next week. im eu btw dont know if it matters for you^^

    My suggestion is turn off chat in GW1. It is 99% just gold selling sites spamming their services, so they can hack your account. It's the same login for GW2 which is probably what they are after. The game is just auto-running on a GW2 server, so no one moderates what happens there.

  • thanks for the warning mate^^ but anyway i never write a seller. but its sad anet no longer care for this masterpiece. i rly hope for a remake!

    Even in its heyday most people played with 6 or 7 heroes for most content. Just grab heroes and go do whatever you want.

    Don't need humans for UW FoW or even ToPK well setup hench (hero variety) you can solo it all start to finish, long as you know what you doing and what the enemies do. Done it countless times myself. Still do it when i do play havn't played in a bit to be honest.

    Gw1 is always still worth playing.
    Like a fine wine it wont age wrongly

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

  • like a fine wine nice said mate :) its rly timeless

    I am regularly back there, but in my case, this is with group of friends to do stuff like FoW for example. So, we do not care much if there are enough "life" around or not, because we do not really need it.

    Next time, will give a go to explorable and check on that. OP did wake up my curiosity. :)

    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...

  • oh cool makes me happy i made u curios^^
