  1. I can answer this. The selling point for this game for me was WVW believing that purchasing the game and expacs as well as spending money to get some of my professions to max level quickly I could enjoy the mode with ANY profession . Finding out that not every profession is viable due to a lack of balance means that I can't play what makes me happy while being herded into having to play what doesn't if I want to participate. Being limited to handful of builds is ridicules. As an adult I take responsibility for how I spend my money but it's obvious I'm not getting any return on my investment
  2. I'm not sure what you're trying to convey here.If you think I personally "hate" spam, you're wrong, it's more that I don't really care, all professions are more or less "spamy" any way.If you think that I don't know how to face a stealthed player, you're also wrong, almost all professions have a way or another to do so. The point is that if a thief engage you while stealthed, you got high probabilities to not know that there was a thief in the area in the first place so it hardly matter whether you've got a brain or not. Worse case you're dead in a gifi, best case you're close to death. As for
  3. I agree with you 100%, I would like nothing better than to be able to play a thief that never touches stealth and I am finding that if I wish to continue I won't really have any choice. Don't get me wrong , Ive had success killing solo players and even 2v1 using sword ports and other mobility without using stealth but this play style is far from easy mode. I'll give an example of what I'm talking about. Last night , this was late when almost no one was on, I decided to put two stealth skills on my bar. I caught what I thought was a solo player flipping a guard and made my move. He was almos
  4. For what it's worth , I would like to offer my 2 cents as a new player since there seems to be this never ending debate over thief. I have played different builds over the last few months on three different professions including thief. What I have discovered is that anyone trying to use pure damage or offense as defense cannot easily win encounters versus defensive tank builds. The game seems to be skewed in favor of I guess what you refer to as bunker builds although I'm not familiar with that terminology. I have played several different thief builds and attempted to play with no stealth a
  5. Thanks for the info, Recently I encountered a Necro that was able to withstand multiple attacks from several players but then after a bit of time they seemed to lose their ability to do that and they would run off and then come back. Another was a group of maybe 5 Necro's that were able to keep overcoming a group twice their size. They weren't trying to cap anything but were just standing outside the keep killing anyone that tried to pass through. Eventually there were enough people to run them off but it took a lot of players to do this.
  6. Since I don't have experience playing the profession , would someone be willing to explain why Necro seems to be so powerful. I see a lot of players running around on this that are difficult to kill whether it's a solo Necro versus multiple opponents or a small group of Necro's versus a larger group. This isn't me hating on any particular profession , I'm just trying to understand the mechanics. I have no desire to play Necro either. I see more people playing Necro and Guardian than any other profession.
  7. Hi, can anyone tell me if Superior Rune of Thorns is still in the game.Thanks in advance.
  8. @Veprovina.4876 Thank you for your reply. This answered a lot of my questions. I did get the mount by tagging along with a small group that was taking a keep during off hours. Although I like the Mesmer's kit , I haven't had a lot of success with it. I have been experimenting with a hard mode S/D core thief build that uses no stealth skills at all and have had more success with that than the Mesmer based on the mobility, the timing however has to be perfect. I prefer a challenge so I'm having a lot of fun running around with that. Overall the mode is fun but like all pvp games there are ba
  9. @"Gotejjeken.1267 Thank you, this was helpful.I will be staying based on what I've already invested.
  10. Thank you for your reply, I greatly appreciate it. I know that was a lengthy post. So then I'm guessing that ANET is neglecting WVW which I find interesting considering the fact that they are in the process of releasing new content and have over one million active players atm. If I'm not mistaken, WVW was one of the main selling points of the game years ago. It's difficult to find a decent mmo these days that has this feature and the combat is quite good imho. It's unfortunate really.
  11. As a new player to GW2 and to WVW , I have a few observations as well as questions so far. Having played my fair share of mmo's over the last 15 years that feature open world pvp as well as pk including those that don't separate from pve , I'm not completely without experience. In fact, I specifically decided to give this game a try because of the WVW mode. That being said, I have a lot of respect for those of you who have put in the time and effort over the years. Even with my experience , the variables in this game can seem daunting at times . So imagine yourself from the perspective of bei
  12. Howdy, New player here learning the game . So far the progression seems to be fairly balanced , not to easy not to difficult. The exp is fairly easy to obtain which is likely to enable new players to progress to level 80 as quickly as possible so they can get to the endgame content without too much of a grind . Ive played a number of mmorpg's over the last few decades with ESO being the most recent. ESO as an example is much easier. I was able to solo world bosses and dungeons before reaching max level in that game. I like the positive atmosphere in this game. There are plenty of players in
