Right I've got this downloaded, activated and ready to go. Which server do I want to jump on and someone recommend a character class for a n00B!

 

I'll be about all day tomorrow, will be able to get on some of Saturday and possibly some of Sunday too.

So I like this. It's only my 2nd MMO type game the first being TOR. Played about 4 hours tonight with Mike and Jimbo, but it wasn't until near the end of my time with the game that it really started to click. The irony is that I didn't realise I didn't have to click as much as I was clicking.....

 

I think I do need to spend some more time with it before I decide to invest, but I am swaying towards buy it.After all it is subscription free, but now so is Star Wars..... I like that you can join in on other peoples story quests, and vice versa. Not only do you get extra XP but you get to see parts that you wouldn't necessarily have done without a whole new play through. The whole world looks lovely, amazingly detailed and there are lots of Vistas to be found, (think Assassins Creed viewpoints and you get the idea.) These seem to be the most frustrating part of the game with their dogy platform mechanics. I'm sure Mike will boast about doing it first time on one of these in Ahsford Plains!

 

I'm playing as a Char dog cat type thing ranger. Mike is a guardian with a massive hammer(possibly a euphimism) , Jimbo just ran in swinging his weapon about(fnar). Between us we managed to twat loads of different types of monsters. It all gets so involved with daily achievements for killing x amount of this monster, y amounts of different types of monster. I can see where OCD would be a problem. Don't let Martha near this game!!

 

There are also loads of daily events, you'll just be exploring an area and NEW EVENT NEARBY pops up on your screen, so you go check it out. You do that one, and it can lead into another and another, etc....... This is not a game to be playing when you're about to go to bed.

 

What I'm describing is probably the same as many other MMO type games out there but hey ho. I'm a PC n00B all over again having not really touched PC gaming in a big way for nearly a decade.

 

If anyone else is on the trial for the weekend we're on the desolation server, I'll definitely be about tomorrow day time for a few hours, and possibly Sunday evening too. After all I need to take advantage of the free trial as much as possible,someone just needs to tell my long suffering wife that I possibly have a new gaming addiction and she can blame Jimbo

Awesome. I am probably going to level one of my other characters, and run it over to you. An all charr guild will be boring.

CHARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

 

I just went to upgrade to the full game and the only options it's giving me are pay by CC or Paypal, no option to insert a serial key. Hopefully this wil change after the trial is up!

For those of you buying it and are on Desolation, join the Beer and Burgers guild, that's the one me and some people from work are in. The guild isn't active as such, but me and the one guy from work play it most nights.

OK! I've finished the free trial, and bought the code from Simply Games. I'm probably being thick as fuck but I cannot for the life of me see where I'm supposed to enter the retail code to upgrade to the full game. Can anyone help out?

 

I've googled it and all I've found are people complaining after applying the free code to their already active full accounts and finding them not working.

I think you might have to register the code first, then attach the account you set up to it maybe? I bought a serial key online, activated it on arena net's website, then assigned my existing GW account to it.

 

It is a bit of a mess though to be honest.

K Cheers. I'll give this a go. It's ridiculous you can't just log in to your account and add the serial code. That would just be too easy. poc gaming FTW!

1 week into my MMO addiction.

 

It's ridiculous. Jimbo and I hit our daily quota kill, then the clock struck midnight and it reset. MUST KILL THEM ALL AGAIN!

 

I've just put another 4 hours into this tonight and I haven't finished yet. 4 hours, 1 story mission. The rest was spent rounding up minotaurs, or collecting scrap metal. Or having Cinnamon rolls cooked for me. Don't ask. I fucking love this game and I'm so glad I got a PC that can play it.

Glad you are enjoying it!

 

Hit 55 yesterday, won't get to play any more until Monday as going to the Mrs for the weekend.

 

I'm loving the tongue in cheek dialogue in this game, take this one for example, could it be a sneaky joke about "hairy pie"?

Well I hit lvl55 the other week and have barely touched it since, not feeling any forum love for this game, not seen or heard from a single soul. Good thing there's no subscription, otherwise I would be tempted to cancel it and then would lose all interest.

We never got around to sorting out you buying/sending me Project Diva f for me, so you can deduct the ~£30 or whatever it costs from mailing me that if you want? I will be going shopping probably tomorrow so can grab a copy for you then if you really want it, just let me know.

So I'm totally addicted to this. I've hardly touched the story. Hit level 25 yesterday with my Charrrrr ranger.

 

I'm off from Xmas eve through to 2nd and will realistically be able to play from the 27th if anyone is up for a bit(read a lot) of this. Be nice to do some of the harder group areas with you all. I'll definitely be levelled higher by then!

Wouldn't mind doing the lvl30 dungeon again as soon as you are high enough a level. Me and my workmate are both 55 so have all our skill slots unlocked, which will make it easier, even if we are down-levelled to 30.
