Urgatorbait.7810 Posted January 4, 2018 Share Posted January 4, 2018 Greetings!I've played many different MMO's over the years ever since MMO's existed. I've always seemed to quickly gravitate to a class that I liked and worked for my play style but ever since I've discovered GW2 a few days ago, I've found that task not quite as easy for some reason. I don't know how I missed GW2 all these years but I've now discovered what a really great and polished game it is. That aside, I find it a bit different from the traditional model and a little more complex to figure out how to build what you'll like (i.e. what weapon combos to use, all the utilities, specializations, gear/stat priorities, etc.)I was hoping to find a little guidance from those in the know who may be able to point me in the right direction or at least giving me some advice on how I may be able to quickly discover which class is best for me myself. Here is where I am at; I tried a Necro until about level 8 and couldn't figure out why I didn't have a pet. Quickly got an itch to try a Ranger and found it to be pretty fun. Have that character to level 24 playing only a long bow. That's the breadth of my GW2 experience. I'm beginning to wonder if the Ranger is for me or not and I find I'm struggling a tad - maybe I just don't know what I'm doing yet and admittedly, I haven't spent many hero points yet because I have no idea what to put them in and don't want to gimp myself later on.Here are some parameters around which I'd like some guidance...I am mainly concerned with a build for PvE, the main story line, and open world events. I have zero interest in PvP or WvW. I would like to be able to do dungeons either solo or in a group but I am mostly a solo player due to real life commitments and play time availability. Typically, in other MMO's I lean towards caster classes, pet classes, or stealthy classes. I am open to other classes as well. I also am looking for a class/build that doesn't require a more twitchy play style of dodging all the time, kiting, etc. I either want to hit hard from a distance and continue to do so from a distance - OR - hit hard from a distance and then be very capable up close when things get up close and personal. I don't care to be the fastest clearer but I want to be capable in that area and also not be so squishy that I die when I get a few mobs on me at once.I think that's about it. I have read many similar posts but most of what is said is in jargon I am not yet familiar with so even when I read it it 's hard to make sense of it. I don't need super-in depth guidance but some ideas of what classes (based on my above stated play style) might be good to check out and maybe a couple indicators about what specialization or skills/weapons to focus around would be helpful. Thanks so much in advance for your wisdom and safe and happy hunting to you all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
