Not actual real life games, but things that could one day become games.

Guild Wars 2 approacheth

Postby random » Wed Aug 15, 2012 1:12 pm

The Guild Wars 2 launch is almost upon us. The official launch date is August 28th. But that's only for the unprepared. Those select warriors who possess the cunning and foresight to pre-order the game will be able to start their adventure on the 25th. A full three days ahead of everyone else!

In case you wish to be prepared, you can find pre-order links for the version you're interested in here: https://buy.guildwars2.com/en/

I'd like to use this thread to see who is planning to play, and to coordinate a server home.

Needless to say, I'll be playing when early access begins. In between MechWarrior battles. ;)

Cheers.

I'll be playing and propose the Fort Aspenwood server (only because that is the only server name I remember).

I'm going to be playing on the Sanctum of Rall with a couple of RL friends and their guild, Gaiscioch*. Since GW2 has the ability to belong to multiple guilds at once and I believe will also have strong multi-guild alliance functions post-launch, I would propose Sanctum of Rall.

Can't wait until early launch!

*Gaisciochis the guild that had a strong outpouring of support for their member OldRoar that had press about on the likes of Kotaku and several MMO blogs. They are a guild similar in playstyle and demographic of players to WC. As I understand it, they have been keen on guild alliances in the past in previous games and will continue that trend in GW2.

I just named a server at random, so Sanctum of Rall is as good as any other server.

Tonight at midnight is the starting point for folks who pre-purchased the game. If you pre-ordered the game you get to start on Monday morning at 12:01am.

The server we'll meet up on is: Sanctum of Rall.

Respond to the thread with your list of character names as you get into the game and get going.

See you in game!

I'm playing Toklat, an Asura Engineer. I took the Jeweler and Huntsman skills. I don't really know enough to say I'd that was wise or not. Time will tell.

I've setup the Wicked Claw guild. Ping Toklat for an invite.

I've also created a Sylvari theif named Tokora.

Cheers.

is it possible to have toons on multiple servers?

I joined one of my RL friends on Dragon(somthing-or-other) and didn't see this thread until just a wee bit ago.

I don't believe so. The game is really built around your account, and not your toons. The state clearly multiple times that you need to pick your server with care, and it costs gems to change.

I purchased GW2. I have not had much time to play. I am on the Jade Quarry server right now with some friends. Ash has posed a great question that I do not know the answer to. I have not had any time to experiment with Ash's question. Anyone else know the answer?

Arg. I like the ability being able to game with diff RL Friends on diff servers.
Is it even possible to kill all toons and then start up on a different server?

For the moment, you can transfer for free using the world change button in the lower left (cost is 0 gems, cooldown is 0 days). This will be fee based in the near future (perhaps the very near future), but there is a grace period they've setup to allow everyone to get established.

Beyond that, I'm not sure what happens if you delete all characters.

I was under the impression that everyone got one free server transfer.

They are supposedly going to allow playing on other realms for free with you friends. There will be some restrictions as to what you can do. I think the example given was no WvWvW if you're guesting on a server.

Also, I found this interactive world map which shows all the points of interest per zone. It was tremendously helpful for me to find the last quest hub in the Wayfarer Foothills.

Enjoy!

Somehow I totally missed that Madd was playing on a different server.

If he has friends on a different server, we should join him. He's on the server Jade Quary.

Server transfers are still free. On the character selection screen, click the World Select button. Scroll down to the Jade Quary server and select transfer. You'll be logged out and your characters will be transfered.

Enjoy!
