Yeah sorry, I baited you with the crappy title didn’t I?
Ofc WOW isn’t dead, its got plenty of people paying up and playing the game. But no longer am I one of those people. I gave up on the carrot on a stick gear chase that is WOW.
I got tired of the reputations, the factions, the tier 13 14 15 16 … To much of the same over and over.
So that left me hungry for an online game. And it so happens I still had Guild Wars 2 installed on my computer. So that is what I have been up to for the past two weeks.
And it’s scary to witness how much of a noob I was again in GW2.
Lucky for me my gaming buddy is still very present in the game, and is one of the Gunnar’s Hold WvW strongholders. She helped me settle in and I recently found a nice little guild to hang with.
Due to my nature, I’ve been swapping and trying out all the different professions in the game.
My main character is an Engineer, and I chose the flamethrower as my favorite weapon. A lot of hardcore people would now be screaming ‘noob’ or ‘go nades’, but thank god I don’t have to listen to them.
Yes the flamethrower does less damage than grenades, but it suits my playstyle. And I just hate the grenade spam builds … my wrists can’t handle that any more :-).
