Luthan.5236 Posted June 14, 2019 Share Posted June 14, 2019 Hi guys!I played Guild Wars 2 from the start (last das of open beta) until end of 2013 with an old Intel Core 2 Duo 8400, 4 GB RAM and a Radeon HD 4850. I stopped end of 2013 and now I want to return. I still only have a weak computer. (Hope it is okay though. It is a HP Compaq 8200 Elite CMT with a Core i5 2500 and a cheap graphics card added and I'm okay with love graphics settings and fps.)Now some questions:What big changes from start of 2014 until now should I pay attention to? I played mainly PvW with focus on quests, story and completion of the maps. (No fractals, dungeons, ...) Every now and then WvW and PvP. As far as I saw there have been made 2 addons with 1 new class (no no race) and some changes with the trait system. And Living World seasons.Would it make sense to play without the addons first? I'd like to push all my 8 chars (have one for each class) to level 80 and complete the main maps and story (I read Zhaitan is finally beatable without having to to the dungeon with a group and solo is possible?) Or should I buy the addons already (they might add stuff to the old maps that would require me to go back there later if I bought them later)? So ... Lion's Arch got changed in living world story season 1 (which can't be replayed)? And I can play main story + up to Living World season 2?Is it even possible to catch up and to all the old stuff? If I do the main map completion first I should have enough points to buy all the skills from the addons and the new maps should not take tong I guess?How fast is new stuff getting added? Is there only living story updates? Or are there other events? (I might ignore those for now until I caught up a bit unless there are really interesting rewards.How active is the game/playerbase? Are there still players and new players in the beginner zones and in the racial cities? Or only a small experienced playerbase camping in Lion's Arch between their dungeon visits and doing WvW? And how's the WvW and PvP? Any notable changes or new maps there? I played on Underworld which was ranked pretty low back then. Glad to see it higher up in the rankinds. (Really curious about the WvW history of that server since I consider it my home server and won't change and the community back then was nice. :) ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
