I got to spend a bit of time in Guild Wars 2 again recently for the first time in months! But there is the feeling that I’ve been having almost every single time that I logged on in the past year or so that I’ve missed so much and I have no idea where or how to find information on what I can or should catch up on in the game.
The good part – it is Guild Wars 2 we’re talking about, after all – is that there is nothing that I have to do and nothing like levels or gear that I need to catch up. It’s just things that I feel I should do or that would be convenient to have (done). For example, I’ve got the raptor mount unlocked as well as the springer and the skimmer one. But that’s it. There is a wiki page showing the other mounts as well as short descriptions on how to get them. I guess that is something I can work on to have some kind of goal. I’m wondering if I need any of these mounts. Because if somebody who didn’t have any of the mounts asked me if they were necessary, then I would say that the springer one kind of is. In most cases, you can just try and find paths to get to your goal, but being able to just jump up on your springer mount saves a lot of time!
Most of my characters don’t have their elite specializations unlocked and I feel that it takes ages to do so… I don’t think I would even want to do that for every single profession, just the ones I like playing (my mesmer and warrior should be fine… I think… but there’s the engineer and the thief).
There is something about cats and the home instances? And what is it with those chairs? Should I finish the living world episodes…?
I remember trying to start with getting the Jackal mount, but I didn’t get far with the required Heart… it’s been a long time ago, so I should probably try again. But do I even need that mount?
So basically, what I am wondering: will I need anything to enjoy myself in the upcoming expansion or could any character who didn’t buy any other expansion (content) still happily enjoy that one? Is there anything I am missing that I really want (the cats… although it’s not dogs, sadly…).
