Alright, one day down, two to go. The video is being converted and uploaded as I type this up, and it’ll be added…eventually. In the meantime, let’s go over what you’ll hear in the video and more. And sadly, my camera did not hold a charge for whatever reason so I was unable to get any video, so, I’m pretty ragey…if that’s an actual word.
First off, as mentioned so many times before, Friday was a day for Guild Wars 2. First thing in through the gate and both my father and I headed straight to the Alienware booth where Guild Wars 2 was and we both made Norn guardians at level 1. Now, while we weren’t blown away with the starting area (how can you, you don’t have enough time to stop and admire the beautiful world) the guardian was a blast because, if you’re a GW vet, you’ll notice right away some elements from professions in the original Guild Wars and there’s a couple of them. You could say it’s a magical coalition of Guild Wars fun mixed into one class.
And this is where you would be watching the video showing off the devs playing an early-to-mid level guardian and thief (charr and human respectively), but you’ll have to settle for my recount, also, it was on Justin.tv so, it’s on the internet in places. Go find it. Anyway, the guardian really picks up at level 27 and it has wards that can immobilize foes amongst other holy-spirit spells and the thief. Well, the thief does it’s thing by stabbing people in the face or shooting them in the face. Criticals were abound as the thief moved with grace and precision and quickly switching between daggers in both hands and pistols in both hands. I love both so it’s hard to say I have a favorite set. My father says playing a thief with a bow was fun, but I was too busy stabbing and shooting enemies to try it out.
OH, right. After all that fun, we made our way to the super-awesome
ArenaNet NCSoft party two hours before it started, which in hindsight, was a good idea. Free booze and a playthrough of GW2 (IN CHAIRS!) with a raffle for very nice stuff that I didn’t win all happened, and it was a blast, but at that point I felt like I was dying..or just coming down with a cold. Keep in mind, the week before getting to Boston, the time I spent sleeping was radical and short and almost non-exsistence, so I’m already worn down from bad habits. But, that did not stop me from meeting up with other fine folks of the Guild Wars community and it was a blast.
And then we got back to the hotel and
died passed out.
