Rift: Waiting for the expansion with the primalist

Starfall Prophecy, the next expansion in Rift, will launch on November 16. That's not too far away now! So whenever I log in with my main character, my cleric, I just don't feel too motivated playing her. Since I bought the primalist last month, I thought I should probably play her a bit more. She … Continue reading Rift: Waiting for the expansion with the primalist

Why the rush? – Blaugust Day 16

I was so close to level 18 with my spellslinger, that I headed off to a nearby quest hub, grabbed all the quests I saw, killed whatever had the quest-icon next to its head and ran back as fast as my Aurin's legs could take her, just so I could finally get this new level. … Continue reading Why the rush? – Blaugust Day 16

My gaming update

Day no. 6 and I already need to add a "filler post". I had planned to post about my dimension in Rift tonight, but due to a horrible back ache, I cannot spend any lengthy amount of time typing. So instead, I'll just tell you what I've been up to lately in terms of gaming. … Continue reading My gaming update

I am the “eternal soldier” kind of Guild Wars 2 player

ArenaNet currently offers Guild Wars 2 for 50 % off until November 9 - and to celebrate that (or in order to direct more people to that site, I guess), they added a little quiz: What kind of Guild Wars 2 player are you? My result was this: You're a... Eternal Soldier You know what … Continue reading I am the “eternal soldier” kind of Guild Wars 2 player

Weapon Master…

We have successfully moved and most of our stuff is in the new place. I have also been ill for the last three weeks - yes, my timing is impeccable. However, now that most things have settled, it is time to call for an end of our summer break and you'll see me blogging here … Continue reading Weapon Master…

Pondering about which profession to choose…

When I wrote about my favourite profession in Guild Wars 2, I was looking at the topic from a pure PvE point of view. This entry is about WvW now. I used to play World of Warcraft on a PvP server and I always hated it. As soon as I got the chance to get … Continue reading Pondering about which profession to choose…

GW2 Combat Mesmer

Seriously now, mesmer or warrior?

Before the release of Guild Wars 2, I had already asked myself whether I wanted the warrior or the mesmer profession for my main character. Oddly enough, I am not the only person wondering about this choice as I have regularly seen readers come to our blog because of the very same "dilemma". The game … Continue reading Seriously now, mesmer or warrior?

Ask Nerdy Bookahs

It's time for another "Ask Nerdy Bookahs". We have looked at the questions in the search terms that led people to our blog for which we know we do not have fitting entries and we're trying to answer those questions now. Do I need to have played Guild Wars to play Guild Wars 2? Technically, … Continue reading Ask Nerdy Bookahs

Guild Wars 2: Regions by level

I was curious where I could go with my level and found it a bit difficult to spot the level range on the map. I know I can always "downlevel" to zones below my level. That means that the "1-15" does not tell you to leave Plains of Ashford once you're level 16 or 17. … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Regions by level

GW2: Will it really lack endgame?

Update July 13, 2012: There's an interview on Twitch.tv with Eric Flannum and Colin Johanson where they're talking about endgame in Guild Wars 2. :) I have seen several people talk about whether Guild Wars 2 has an endgame and whether it needs one. Some articles/discussions are a bit older, others are newer. Let me … Continue reading GW2: Will it really lack endgame?
