Beta Highlight

Post  Xuie on Wed May 02, 2012 11:24 pm

Sooooo, a couple of days have now passed since the first Beta weekend wrapped up, and I'm just wondering what the highlight(s) was/were for you guys.

I myself found that I'm an explorer junkie, on my Norn I quickly explored all of Wayfarer Foothills, Snowden Drifts, Hoelbrak, Divinity's Reach and Lion's Arch, as well as most of the Charr areas. Out of all those places I think the area I liked the most were the ruins of 'Old' Lion's Arch submerged in the bay, as well as finding Stormcaller in the Black Citadel.

Of course, there were so many other things I found enjoyable, my time playing the Ranger and Guardian are pretty high up on the list too. Not to mention WvW.

So yeah, what was your favourite moment/aspect of the beta?

Beta fun

Yes, the explorer came out in me too. I know it did with YWW and Platinum Foil too. I started to gather lots of materials to learn crafting but I didnt get very far with that one really.

Theres certainly lots to learn and it would be good to get a broad range of skills and profs when it all goes live.

my main goal for the beta is to try and work out how to set up my key bindings etc.
during the first beta i mainly played guardian and the controls werent much different to what i use in gw1. but during the stresstest i briefly tried thief with pistols - that means learning how to kite while shooting. activating skills while running was one of the few things i liked about aion.

also, single word names are exciting (at least for me) i have a few names that i'm going to try and snatch before anyone else takes them on launch day. Smile

I didn't get a chance to play this weekend, but was there any improvement in how the game ran? There was a substantial difference for me between how well it ran between BW1 and BW2

More fun and new Races

Post  Zilken Zatin on Mon Jul 23, 2012 1:22 pm

It was good fun. A finally a chance to see the Asuran and Sylvari areas... which were gorgeous!!!!
Did the sprint explring thing again and covered lots of ground. This helped getting XP up and therefore new skill slots.

Once again didnt really get to crafting so suspect gonna be spending time on that later.

Had a few drop outs connection wise for no obvious reason, dunno if it was my ISP (other devices didnt have a problem) but hey ho, sent the crash report either way.

Heres to August 25th!!!!!!!!

WOOHOO!!!!
