As the title says, I'm looking for people to play GW2 with, I've been playing on and off since launch, and I love the game to bits, but alot of people I used to play with have left for other games, If you're new to the game I'll gladly help you out or answer any questions you might have, old players like myself is of course welcome aswell ^^
PM me if interested, I'm up for doing Discord/Skype, but can keep to text aswell.

I've moved around and traveled a lot in the past few years, so I've just been making due with my phone and tablet. I'm saving up for a nice PC though. Guild Wars and The Sims are waiting for me

Never could get into Guild Wars 2 myself, but my brothers liked it a lot. They lost interest when some of the updates started majorly screwing around with the classes and the power balance between the classes. Is it better now?

I haven't noticed any problems with the power balance atleast in the structured pvp, which i spend the most time in, can't say for how that goes for World vs world or Pve though :<.

Expansion update

Announcing Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire

https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/announcing-guild-wars-2-path-of-fire/

I've heard about this game a lot before and recently got back playing some MMOs. For those who have been playing this game recently, is it too late for new players?

Definitely not too late for new players. Since the non-expansion content went F2P, there's a constant influx of new players to the game. If you're on the fence, I highly recommend giving that a go to give yourself a more informed opinion before dropping money on the expansions. Free accounts do have a number of restrictions on them, mind.

Interesting.

Do you happen to know how grinding works in this show for speciifc levels? Or how long it takes?
I used to play another popular MMORPG and the grinding was really boring.

Depending on your definition of grinding and your experience with it in other MMO's, GW2 takes a slightly different approach to leveling and puts a lot more emphasis on free roaming the in-game world than forcing you on a linear trail of quest lines. Although this has been known to throw a lot of players off who are more familiar with the MMO constantly informing you where you need to go next.

Getting to max level usually takes 1-3 weeks for someone new that actively plays. With leveling up characters, the game encourages you to discover and complete hearts (hearts are GW2's questing mechanic and give the most XP) and Dynamic Events, rather than grinding the same mobs in your zone constantly to gain XP. So you're always doing something a little different on your way to max level, and it tends to progress at a fairly steady rate as your level gets higher, rather than incrementally increasing as you approach max level. Also, the key to enjoying GW2 as a new player has always been to enjoy the process of leveling up rather than racing to max level, as there's a lot to do on the way.

If grinding is something you enjoy doing, it only really becomes a thing when you want to start doing high end dungeons (called Tier 4 Fractals) or start gathering crafting materials for some of the more fancy looking cosmetic armours and weapons in the game, particularly the top tier known as 'Legendary' and will take a good few months of play to craft

Hope the above information helps!
