Now that the final Beta Weekend Event has come and gone, what did you get up to?
I started off by trying out the one profession I hadn't played yet - the warrior. I really disliked warriors in GW1, and I feel much more comfortable playing at range. But seeing as the GW2 warrior is different to the stereotypical warriors found in other games, I thought I'd give them a go. So I rolled an Asura warrior, and the next thing I know, I'm level 20 and realise that I LOVE playing as a warrior! Their mobility is amazing, as well as their damage and survivability, and it's great fun to savage leap around the place. Plus, the Asura animations are amazing! It makes me chuckle seeing a tiny Asura warrior with a massive greatsword.
I also rolled a Norn thief, a Human necro, a Charr Ranger, and a Sylvari ele. Sylvari character creation is sublime. So many options to create a truly unique char. I love all those professions, and will most likely be rolling them at launch.
I tried a bit of wubwub, completed several jumping puzzles, traded on the auction house, and revived many, many players (Fire elemental, you were a beast to take downt!). Didn't do any sPvP though, as PvE was too much fun.
I enjoyed the finale "Hunger Royale". It was a bit different, a bit odd, a tad slow perhaps, and the map too large, but it was a really neat idea. Losing health and being out of ammo, then seeing another low health out of ammo enemy come towards you, is rather tense! Stealthing and rifle butt saved me a fair few times! Also, the drones were amusing. Plus, seeing my Asura warrior wearing sunglasses was hilarious.
I'm now suffering massive withdrawal symptoms, although my body is thanking me for the extra sleep since the BWE finished.
So everyone, what's your story?
