So i started up the game, messing around a little, then youtube, then Expansion pack, boosted my lvl to 80 cus this is a old game and most game should be happening lategame.
When opening the Trade Post i was hoping to see pretty much something that makes me think:" Holy hell, i want this stuff!"
Basically something that motivates to do stuff and Get Money!
So after exploring the trader i was like:" Ooh. So i have the best gear. Hmm... What should i do now? Im not going to get stronger and im very confused."
I was basically staring at my wall, feeling empty like the wall.
So after searching trough all my items and googling the stuff. I found out, that if i spend a lots of time with gathering materials and crafting i get little little bitty better gear.
I was very very confused.
iAM Former AION player. 6years ago.
I still have no idea how this game works tbh. but it is nothing like AION. Almost. I mean... i was thinking it is like Aion but not for pianists or keyboard walkers and hopefully not pay to win.
Its so different that i wish it was more like Aion but not ruined like Aion.
Aion Aion Aion got me hooked with
Rifting as a mighty, fearless Assassin, waiting for the perfect moment... uses: EMPTY RUNE BURST! on gathering dude and runs away in laughing tears... followed soon by group of 6.
So much fun, exitement and failures... but always one thing in mind: GEAR!
"Oo so, lets make the cash shop. This game is basically driven by chain of dopamine bursts in players heads when they success and reach their goals but...
F*** it, lets give all the stuff for real money and make game really not challenging at all... but lets make it so: Takes about 2 months to get some proper gear by doing boring dailies. Lets make them suffer like drug addicts waiting their dose.
So we open up our wallets, we get the items, we dont get the fun or dopamine that was created by achieving the goal.
We riot, we cry, we die and leave with broken hearts and broken wings.
All i know about GW2 so far is that i know nothing and it is really not based on overgearing other players like Aion.
So far the community warms my heart and good community means that there must be something to look forward.
So my Questions are: What is your little story in GW2 that got u hooked? Should i continue on my lvl 80 char or make whole game with at least one char? What are most popular locations and activities of lategame?
