    • What the hell is a 'Music Guild'!?!?!?

    People who use the instrument novelty items skillfully and creatively have gathered together in various guilds. They play music for whoever wants to gather, teach each other interesting tricks, and, well, like any guild, join together in common short-term cause and end up hanging out together.

    Arguably the best known is Minstrel's Waypoint [Cmaj] (the tag is a musician's in-joke), due to their infamous video
    A Music Guild Tries to Raid
    (and its various sequels)

    Ah thanks for the info. Didn't know this existed.

    Unfortunately, I tried to join a Musician's Guild on Saturday but was unable to because the player I was speaking to (who had invited me to join the guild) was standing right next to me in Divinity's Reach, but unfortunately we couldn't actually 'meet' and interact because I figured out that he was on a different server than I.

    It turns out he's on the USA Server, and I'm on the EU one.

    If the other player was standing right next to you (and you saw him/her standing there) you can't be on different regions (EU or NA), as they don't share map instances.

    I saw his white symbol on the map, but we couldn't find eachother, and we also tried to meet inside the guild hall but that failed.

    It's ok we confirmed that we were on separate continents/servers.

    I SO wanted to be in that Musicians Guild lol.

    Did you right click his name in group and join his instance?

    Thats what you should do. I doubt youre on different server (you EU he NA) if you saw his dot on map?. You just have to join party with him and right click on him and select "Join instance" or sth like that to see him.
    Maybe Im wrong and youre really on different servers though, but I ddidnt think its possible to see their dot on map :open_mouth: But that's really stupid. Why allow to see their dot if you cant join them anyway.

    There isn't much you can do other than pay if you truely found yourselves on different versions of the game. NA and EU being connected on serveral levels and actually allowing us to swap versions for such a tiny fee is already more community friendly than anything I have ever seen in other games. Thus it is a little hard for me to take this complaint seriously.

    I actually disagree. I don't think it's fair to ask players to pay any sum to change server in order to play side by side with teammates in another region. This seems to me like a kind of basic requirement that should be available as an option in any MMO.

    GW1 Rulez: #getwithit LOL (please don't take me seriously, I kid :D )

    So yeh - not fair.

    Or there other/many MMOs that allow world/realm transfers for free? The price for WoW is $25 per character.. You're being asked to pay $6.25 for the account, and you can easily farm the gold for that.

    So, maybe not fair but not a high cost either.

    Be careful what you ask for

    Please tell me what bit of 500-2K gold is 'easy' to farm???

    Someone told me not to be any outfits on the store and that I should farm and that I can farm 100 gold in one month...so I went on that long mission:

    I gave up after 2 days when I realised I was making barely one gold per day.

    I just used my credit card instead lol.

    WOW should not be charging either.

    First off, it’s not 500 to 2000 gold. You need 500 gems. Gems currently are about 33 gold/100 gems so that means you need about 165 gold to buy 500 gems.

    As other people have told you, it’s not that much gold. If you’re making barely 1 gold a day then you’re not doing your daily to get 2 gold a day, plus gold from selling Mystic Coins you get from logging in, plus gold from converting laurels to gold. (How many mystic coins and laurels do you have in your inventory? Do you look at selling off excesss mats?

    After that, I’m assuming you’re one of those people who don’t want to do anything boring so node harvesting runs would be out. If you do farming runs you can make decent gold. I don’t do fractals myself but I hear they’re a good source of gold. The Domain of Istan is very profitable. Even dungeons is good gold if you do a set each day. The gold is easily obtained. If your’e not making gold then you’re not trying to make gold.

    Be careful what you ask for

    OK,

    So everything you've just said is EXCELLENT (Thank You), and it feeds directly into my MAJOR (biggest) complaint about the game: that there is so much I still don't understand.

    I wish there was much more in-game tutorial available.

    Last night I took part a few meta events in the hot map, and was so confused about what to do (I just tried to follow the crowd and attack)....when I feel this could easily be helped by GW2 providing on screen player instructions for those of us who aren't so intuitive about the game mechanics or what's expected of us.

    The things you mentioned are all a part of that.

    daily - what even is that??
    mystic coins - i've heard of this and i've had a few in the past, but i usually try to sell all the junk in my inventory as quickly as possible cos there's so much of it and most of it has minute amounts of value.
    laurels - what is this?

    All the junk/spam/confusion in gw2 with so much content and item spamming in inventories does not help my player experience and together with the fact this game has no decent in-game tutorial mode for players - has been one of the reasons why I quit for a year.

    Maybe I wouldn't be bashing so much if I knew the game better.

    And please don't talk about forums/wikis - nobody should have to read those to play a game - and a 'game' is what it is. I don't have time or patience for that.

    Daily. It’s on your screen when you first log in each day after reset. You have to select some tasks and accept the daily login reward chest. Do 3 tasks and get 2 gold

    Daily. A typical daily that I did from today’s list (shown on link) was Daily Ascalon Lumberer,
    Brisban Wildlands Event Completer, Daily Desolation Bounty Hunter. There are other PvE dailies and there are PvP and WvW dailies, do any 3 from the list and get 2 gold.

    Mystic coins: you get 20 each 28 days plus there is the occasional mystic forge daily where you use the mystic forge and get a mystic coin. (I use 4 pebbles but any mystic forging will do). Mystic coins are worth over a gold each.

    Laurels: you get 55 laurels each 28 days you log in. They are in your Wallet. Go to a PvE laurel merchant and buy Medium or Heavy crafting bags, open them up, sell the contents on the trading post.

    Be careful what you ask for

  • Level a character from 1 to 80 naturally, and read all the tutorial tips at each level-up. There's your in-game tutorial.
    And/or..ask questions in-game.
    Check the Trading Post for the worth of items; if still unsure, ask in-game or use the Wiki from in-game.
    And/or...peruse the Online Manual. I mean, you aren't adverse to spending time on the forums, so a bit of research using the official sources doesn't seem out-of-hand.

    Good luck.

    Also - are mystic coins only available from the main story map?

    All the junk/spam/confusion in gw2 with so much content and item spamming in inventories does not help my player experience and together with the fact this game has no decent in-game tutorial mode for players - has been one of the reasons why I quit for a year.

    Maybe I wouldn't be bashing so much if I knew the game better.

    And please don't talk about forums/wikis - nobody should have to read those to play a game - and a 'game' is what it is. I don't have time or patience for that.

    Daily. It’s on your screen when you first log in each day after reset. You have to select some tasks and accept the daily login reward chest. Do 3 tasks and get 2 gold

    Daily. A typical daily that I did from today’s list (shown on link) was Daily Ascalon Lumberer,
    Brisban Wildlands Event Completer, Daily Desolation Bounty Hunter. There are other PvE dailies and there are PvP and WvW dailies, do any 3 from the list and get 2 gold.

    Mystic coins: you get 20 each 28 days plus there is the occasional mystic forge daily where you use the mystic forge and get a mystic coin. (I use 4 pebbles but any mystic forging will do). Mystic coins are worth over a gold each.

    Laurels: you get 55 laurels each 28 days you log in. They are in your Wallet. Go to a PvE laurel merchant and buy Medium or Heavy crafting bags, open them up, sell the contents on the trading post.

    Questions:
    How long do dailies last? One's attention span is quite limited due to time constraints :)

    Also - are mystic coins only available from the main story map?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Dailies are available to do within a 24 hours span. From daily game reset to game reset (about 8 hours from right now).

    Mystic coins are available as log in rewards (along with laurels) and as one of the dailies, fractal rewards, that event reward, some other rarer ways, or buy from the trading post.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    There isn't much you can do other than pay if you truely found yourselves on different versions of the game. NA and EU being connected on serveral levels and actually allowing us to swap versions for such a tiny fee is already more community friendly than anything I have ever seen in other games. Thus it is a little hard for me to take this complaint seriously.

    I actually disagree. I don't think it's fair to ask players to pay any sum to change server in order to play side by side with teammates in another region. This seems to me like a kind of basic requirement that should be available as an option in any MMO.

    GW1 Rulez: #getwithit LOL (please don't take me seriously, I kid :D )

    So yeh - not fair.

    Or there other/many MMOs that allow world/realm transfers for free? The price for WoW is $25 per character.. You're being asked to pay $6.25 for the account, and you can easily farm the gold for that.

    So, maybe not fair but not a high cost either.

    Please tell me what bit of 500-2K gold is 'easy' to farm???

    Someone told me not to be any outfits on the store and that I should farm and that I can farm 100 gold in one month...so I went on that long mission:

    I gave up after 2 days when I realised I was making barely one gold per day.

    I just used my credit card instead lol.

    As other people have told you, it’s not that much gold. If you’re making barely 1 gold a day then you’re not doing your daily to get 2 gold a day, plus gold from selling Mystic Coins you get from logging in, plus gold from converting laurels to gold. (How many mystic coins and laurels do you have in your inventory? Do you look at selling off excesss mats?

    After that, I’m assuming you’re one of those people who don’t want to do anything boring so node harvesting runs would be out. If you do farming runs you can make decent gold. I don’t do fractals myself but I hear they’re a good source of gold. The Domain of Istan is very profitable. Even dungeons is good gold if you do a set each day. The gold is easily obtained. If your’e not making gold then you’re not trying to make gold.

    OK,

    So everything you've just said is EXCELLENT (Thank You), and it feeds directly into my MAJOR (biggest) complaint about the game: that there is so much I still don't understand.

    I wish there was much more in-game tutorial available.

    Last night I took part a few meta events in the hot map, and was so confused about what to do (I just tried to follow the crowd and attack)....when I feel this could easily be helped by GW2 providing on screen player instructions for those of us who aren't so intuitive about the game mechanics or what's expected of us.

    The things you mentioned are all a part of that.

    But do you remember actually exactly how long it takes to complete a daily? If it's 8 hours ain't nobody got time fo that,

    if it's 1 hour ain't nobody got time fo that either

    if it's 10-mins one might consider it....

    Depends on the choice(s) of Dailies. And how you go about completing them.
    Why not try some and see for yourself?

    As to worth...how much is 2 Gold worth to you?

    Good luck.

    Most dailies are very fast. If you look at your daily list it’s easy enough to estimate how long.

    Vista. Time it takes to run to a vista on the required map and hit accept.
    Harvesting. Time it takes to harvest 4 required node types on the required map
    Events. Time it takes to do 4 events on the map it says to do them on.
    PvP dailies. Usually one to two matches, so up to 16 minutes.
    Fractals: time it takes to do the suggested fractals.

    And so on.

    Be careful what you ask for

    I saw 500 and thought it wasn't much. I went on my character just to see and a transfer says 1800 so idk where the 500 comes from. I transferred back in the day when it was free like when game first came out. 500 is nothing honestly to stop band wagoners.

    Are you sure about that?

    It takes you 1 year to grind 100 gold.

    Just the mystic coins from logging in for 5 months would have that 100g covered. That is about as bare a minimum as you can get to count as "playing" .

    lol

    Yep, it is funny. Especially considering a mere daily meta gives you 2 gold.

    Some take few minutes, some might take as much as 30 seconds (excluding map loading times). Depends on the daily. I can usually do the 3 dailies required for the 2 gold reward in like 15-20 minutes, without hurrying too much.

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    Its not a flaw of a subject that someone, "bashes," it due a lack of knowledge of that subject.

    Edit: My apologies. Didn't mean to be insulting.

  • And please don't talk about forums/wikis - nobody should have to read those to play a game - and a 'game' is what it is. I don't have time or patience for that.

    It's a massive game with tons of moving parts. Even in ideal circumstances (which we don't have), the devs would only have time to update details, not explain the ins & outs of how dailies can be done more easily.

    That is efficiently outsourced to fans, who do that so well for the GW franchise that ANet is willing to pay for the server to host that content. Folks without the patience to take a look at the wiki are unlikely to have the patience to get the most from a tutorial. Folks who don't read the information available to them at logon (e.g. about dailies) are unlikely to benefit from ANet investing more in UI improvements.

  • Hello Flesh.

    That is because you are feeding it.

    When some one says "Diamons" instead of "Gems", when someone says "Talents" instead of "Traits", etc., I know that person is very far from take this game serious enought. For that person this game does not worth a bit of their time: "Why should I read, why should I make a little research about... nah".
    Even worst if, instead of make any form of an (elaborated or not) question, just make a title without body, and that is why I reported it before people started to answer a not-existent question. And you can add to that the OP's post history.

    At the end of the day I do not care about that behavior I describe in the first part of my post. Just, in the same way, they do not deserve my time neither.

    Salute.

    I wouldn't make assumptions about a person's phrasing in this case. Other games use diamond, talents. In GW2, I hardly ever see anyone use the correct jargon for the different types of crafting: discipline. People use "crafting profession". It doesn't mean they don't understand the mechanics; it means that the words that ANet has chosen don't resonate strongly enough.

    (Mind you, in this case there are plenty of other examples of a choice to post before considering all the information already available, before considering consequences.)

    In the end, of course, it's your time. I suspect however that those of us frustrated with certain types of posts would be disappointed in ourselves if we were to discover that we were equally guilty of failing to consider our assumptions before posting.
