A quick tip on dodging, map it to an unused mouse key (if you have them).  That made it a lot easier for me.  I've mapped weapon swap to another mouse key.

I am loving my asura guardian, spec'ed for healing and support.  I've run into a few mobs who can't individually out damage my passive healing (primarily in zones where I'm down leveled). 

I also have a silvari necro I'm playing as a petless condition focused character.   The variety of how each class can be played considering slot and trait specialization is fantastic!

Sorry if I came off as rude.  I'd say play until you unlock all of your weapons (unles you absolutely dislike a core class mechanic, like pets). You should have enough money to buy a full set of weapons by level 7 from a vendor.  Look at your skill list (hit 'H', select skills) to see what you can equip.

Try out other races and classes, I hated the first class I played (guardian), however played to 10 on most classes.  I found that after I got over the games learning curve that I really liked the guardian when I went back to it.  I have that character slotted out as a utility healer and am very tough to kill.  My damage lags of course, but is still respectable. 

Wander the zones,  look for the paired empty red triangles on your map, those are vistas. Some are quite challenging to get too.  Clear entire zones, if you tag all vistas, waypoints, and points of interest you get rewards (money, experience, and gear). 

Lookup GW2 jumping puzzles in you tube, watch some PVP videos,  I think you'll be impressed.

Ok since people seem to want to assault my opinions, Ill try to clarify.  Im sure the people raving about this game will assault me once again but Im just putting out my honest impressions of the game.  First off be aware that this is based on limited game play and I didnt play in the beta.
  Regarding the graphics, perhaps its due to my choices ( A Nord Hunter ) but I literally laughed out loud when I saw my character.  Give the guy some horns and he would look just like a Tauren in WoW.  The area Ive been playing was a generic northern forest and frankly while it didnt have quite the cartoonish WoW look, it wasnt any better.  The style may be a bit different but what Ive seen so far was not impressive.
 Regarding combat, once again, perhaps my class choice effect this but it seemed all I did was have my bear hold aggro while I arrowed away at the mobs.  Someone wrote earlier that If it was like WoW then I was doing it wrong?   Well, through 7 levels, I never died once and handled level 5 mobs at level 3 with ease.  If Im "doing it wrong" then the game mechanics are seriously flawed because I should have died multiple times if that were the case.
 Exploration so far has been a joke, the game has felt like its on rails.  Of course its early levels so Im not surprised.  I have hopes that it will be far more entertaining once I progress.
Understand, once again, that Ive only played through level 7 so Im sure I have only scratched the surface of the game and Im sure many of you have progressed much farther than I both in regular game play as well as beta.  My opinions are just that, opinions based on my experience so far.  The game may prove to be fantastic on down the road but for now I am underwhelmed.  

I'm going to go backwards through your email:  The lower level zones feel more like they are on rails partly because they are smaller than the 10+ areas, where the zones open up.  You don't have to follow that path in front of you, just head any direction you want to go.  The path may take you through the areas that are most level appropriate though.  As far as exploration, I'm not sure what you are expecting.  The game rewards poking around into the nooks & crannies.  There are hidden tunnels, shortcuts across what seem like impassable mountains, water tunnels, water features & combat, hidden grottoes etc...   As you poke around you'll find new vistas (which are pointed out to you) and puzzles (which aren't).  I've found and completed the jumping puzzles for several zones, and they vary from sadistic jumpers to clue driven mazes. You wont' find them if you don't explore.  So if you think this is a game you can just walk down the path and you're seeing everything there is to see - you are missing a LOT of the game.

The graphics style is what it is, you like it or not.  The quality of the graphics are phenomenal, well beyond anything wow has out. Do an image search on Google, look at some of the you tube videos. Still, this is  really a personal item, so either you like it or not.  Try some of the other races. That said, overall the graphics are unique to the game. There are some similarities to wow, however in general those are areas wow copied to begin with (especially the norn area; it isn't like WoW invented norse themes). 

As far as combat goes, you can't be telling us that you expect level 7 combat to be the end-all be-all of fleshed out character development? Yes it is easy, they are letting you learn your class. Most classes don't even have all of their skills unlocked at that point.  Jump into PVP or WvWvW if you want to see how much strategy there is.  Or fight a boss - you start encountering them at level 3, have a group with you as you pet won't be tanking it for you while you plink it to death.  My first boss fight was were I learned the value of dodging. Then again, I favor melee which forces you to learn mobility & dodging.  You can sit back and strafe, and yes you are correct, the game is easier that way, just not as fun.   Most classes do less damage the farther away they can attack (even the elementalist).

Watch some strategy you tubes for pvp and combat.  There is a lot of counter balancing - if you build all for burst melee damage, somebody else will take you down with stuns roots and take you down from range or using interrupts to stop your big windups. If you attack from range, others can use range closers and lock you down.  At this point you switch weapons to something more appropriate, fire off a utility to break roots or stuns.  If you are a conditions based build, you want to use various skills to put as many on, or strip them from group mates giving you boons, etc...   There is a lot of variety in combat.  You can have access to all of your base skills by level 10, and have a great selection of utilities by level 20, and at least 1 elite by 30.  However if you are going to complain that at level 7, the entire game is a wow clone with poorly thought out combat, you won't get a heck of a lot of sympathy for your lack of effort to explore how the game works.

He did it on his own

No, he didn't. No one does it on their own. Everyone, every. single. person. has at some point received help from others and/or benefited from government.

If, at any point in time, he ran a small business, he likely benefited from the SBA. Banks pretty much won't lend without an SBA guarantee (which covers 50-75% of the loan). If he's ever purchased a home less than 417K (big if) it was backed by GSEs. If he ever drives on a road, it's because a government has paved it. The colleges he went to have received federal money. At some point, he's had employees. All of them have contributed to his success. Nothing in this world is a wholly singular effort.

Whether you like it or not, we're all in this together. We need less people thinking 'I did this on my own, suckers!' and more people acknowledging the help they get every single day to get to where they are.

And just to drive home this point, on Gawker today: GOP hosting 'smaller-government' rally in arena paid for with a majority of government funds. Government is a hell of a lot more ubiquitous than people realize. It touches every single facet of our lives in a lot of invisible ways.

The question is... how much should an individual be forced to contribute to that greater good?

I'm not saying Romney's cuts make any sense (they fucking don't - they are in fact asinine), but I'm also against the whole TAX THE FUCK OUT OF THE RICH THEY CAN AFFORD IT mindset, primarily because I make a lot of money, pay a lot of taxes, and candidly get fuck all relative to most people in benefit for it.  The thought of paying more taxes makes me want to vomit.  Or at the very least leave and go to a country where I get something reasonable and tangible for my high tax rate.  Like at least attractive, less horrifically fat women.  SOMETHING.

Anybody making a lot of money as salary isn't making a lot of money and isn't rich.  Once you've passed the boundary that your investments are beating your salary by a large margin, then you are doing pretty well and are in a position that your tax rate should  be going down by a large margin in comparison to the middle class.  

I'm a commercial underwriter, I've reviewed financials and tax returns up and down the spectrum, from firefighters to billionaires.   The wealthy have avenues of income that have far lower tax percentages (long term investments are at 15%) and have access to more tax wright offs and deductions (and in larger amounts) than the middle class.  My first thought when I see anything over a few thousand in the 'total taxes' box when reading a tax return of somebody moderately well off is "your doing it wrong".  This is a tax code problem, one that I don't see Romney or Obama ever addressing.

On a slightly different subject, were you all aware that he used to invest in a medical waste company that, as part of its business, disposed of aborted fetuses?

Stericycle 13D 11-22-1999

He controls the Bain, BCIP, and Sanaky shares, as well as has direct interest. I put that at about 47% total control by Romney, with 12.76% in his name.

I don't care - somebody has do it (and somebody has to be the investor), I just think its funny given he is a republican.

I played a guardian this last beta and loved it, it is a bit more cerebral and has a lot more utility than the warrior while retaining a lot of the visceral feel in combat.  It's now my my pick for release.

Just started playing bw3 this morning.  I had originally no desire to play a silvari, but I have got to say they did a pretty awesome job with this race.  Both the character creation options and the creatures you fight against are pretty amazing.

I'm pretty impressed with both new races.  Played an assura guardian up to 9, switched over to a silvary elementalist and am really enjoying both areas.

My problem with the higher FPS is the lighting is clearly false (wrong angles & shadows - chosen for film instead of realism in current movies) and distinction between the actors and the set becomes very obvious.   This could probably be mitigated with a really good set and more realistic lighting (including shadows!). If anybody gets it right I think Jackson's a good bet, however I'll believe it when I see it.

After poking around a bit, I agree the child forums are a bad idea.  I spend a bunch of time in off-topic, I spend almost no time in R&P unless I"m otherwise directed there.  Unless i click into R&P & use the 'mark all topics read', the Off topic forum will not show if I have unread posts in it in the main forum list. 

There are actually three icon states, no color for no new posts, light blue for new posts in the child forum, and dark blue for new posts in the parent forum.  I think the only combination that doesn't show differently is new posts in the child forum when there are also new posts in the main board.

Does that work in the BlackDay layout? because, I'm not seeing it. 

As for the merge, if we can get some of the filtering options that have been mentioned, I'd be happy.  But as others have said, sorting through through the chaff to find the interesting posts is annoying. 

It might make sense to create a forum to hold the long lived posts so they don't constantly scroll off the page using moderators discretion to move the posts or some voting method for the move. Although I'm not sure if that sounds as good in writing as it did in my head.

I filled out one of the closed beta survey's where they asked about my opinions of the game, if I'd purchase on release, and if I'd recommend it. I essentially said "this game is made by funcom, no way am I giving you guys any money for it until its been out quite a long time, if then".

while I know I'm in the minority I don't like having the PC and Console games merged mainly because now it takes longer to find what you are looking for. 

I took a look at the 'new blood' thread and only 2 people seemed for merging them, with Razgon a possible but he stated he could see there still be a separation between the two.  Most people who aren't thrilled with it didn't speak up until afterwards, probably because they didn't get a chance to or were expecting a deeper discussion.  I count 5 of them, with two possibles.

that said, since the merging is done I'm guessing there isn't a way to un-merge things.

Yeah, I didn't realize the 'new blood' thread was an actual active discussion on how to merge the threads.  It seemed like it was just a brainstorming session and then BANG!, thread merge.  I'm not really a fan of the console & PC forums being merged as it is now more cumbersome to sort through to the posts I'm interested in. I have no interest in non PC posts  so having a way to sort down to PC only would be nice.  Or, have a way we can check boxes to mark threads read or unread, I can quickly go through and check everything not PC, mark read, then peruse the PC threads after.  Or not.  It isn't like there are so many posts I have to scroll back pages to find anything.

So, you can officially put me in the 'not a fan' camp, however, it isn't like I'll be leaving the boards over it or anything.

I'm involved in a few beta's which have been tiding me over, however have been pretty much game-less. Its a sad state to be in.  crybaby

The game is improving, and I really like the theme and story, however even with the improvements the combat feels clunky to me - I think it may have something to do with how skills are timed when a key-press is made, I'm not sure.    The game isn't as fluid feeling as AOC, which I think is unfortunate.

Second question to anyone using companions or henchmen, how do you deal with the annoying game mechanic of friendly fire? As a ranged mage type I have been seriously debating dumping my companion as it's more a hinderance than a help now. He has a penchant for stepping right in front of my spells and in narrow corridors makes targeting an enemy more difficult than it should be. Had one battle against a Bandit Chieftan I should have easily won but could not launch any attacks in fear of hitting my companion.
If you complete the Azura Shrine quest, you'll have the option of getting a mage companion.  For the reasons you mentioned, she makes a great compliment for your own mage.  She never gets in the way, and you both can nuke the crap out of anything that opposes you both.

I have a mage henchman I got from a different quest and he's an idiot.  So unless the AI is better with her, then the henchmen being a mage doesn't automatically make them great. He steps into my line of fire all the time and having him around pretty much means I have to forgo AOE spells.

Did anyone else see the "Important Information about your Account" email from Bioware and think for a moment that it might be a beta invite?  As irrational as it sounds, I was...dissapointed to discover it was just a communication about changing passwords soon.  Boo.   


I was hopeful, then I was wondering if it was a well executed phishing scam.  Then I was annoyed - the new restrictions on passwords actually make them less secure than they were before due to new limitations on characters.

Although it looks damn cool, I'm going to wait a while for patches. Fool me once...

I'll wait on patches & mods.  I'm not sure what their deal is, but it always feels like they know they don't have to finish things properly because modders will do it for them.  Take character models; they been making these games for how long now and they have yet to make a decent body or face model.

I wonder if they accidentally played the latest Resident Evil instead of this in a theater if anyone would realize it?

You are all such haters!

Love the RE series, love the Underworld series!  The only thing better than Kate Beckinsale and/or Milla Jovovovovich is if you put them both together in the same movie.  And clone each of them!  And make them fight zombie dogs.  There's always room for zombie dogs.

You mean the only thing better OTHER than a Kate Bekinsale & Milla Jovovovich love scene.   drool
