How is the PVP in this game so far?

I don't like MMO's unless the PVP is good, especially if there are good opportunities to grief other players. The reason I quit wow is because they made griefing harder

This is why we can't have nice things.

I never played GW1, nor Warhammer.

What are the main differences I should expect from shadowbane? (or even wow.)

I remember having some good times in shadowbane. I remember getting banned from basically every public trainer city on my coix thief for stealing craploads of money from their owners. And my neph doomsayer was just godly.

Actually in WoW, even though I was horde, I was really good friends with the alliance players. We would have this clique where the best of alliance PvPer's knew and were friends were with the best horde PvPer's.

Once you made the "who's who" list, you wouldn't gank the other good PvPer's, you'd just watch them gank players of your faction and they'd watch you gank theirs, and then you'd all have a good laugh

I was notorious on my server for entering Stormwind solo and just killing every pvp flagged player I could find without ever dying. The alliance players who knew me would come on vent and ask me to gank other alliance players that were on their sh*tlist.

I would do really mean things to people (e.g. killing hunters pets while they're fighting a group of mobs and watching them struggle to stay alive, or using typhoon to knock people off of their flying mounts so they'd fall and die, or tricking people to follow me to where your spirit can't reach your corps to resurrect, and then killing them) but it was all in good fun

And then there were the holiday events, which on PvP servers were always littered with the bones of dead players...it was beautiful...always cracked me up too. Sadly blizzard killed that, which is why I left.

-

Anyways I'm having a look at GW, the PvP system looks interesting (have my eye on a Charr Thief)...only thing is, how "grindy" is this game? Same ol' "kill and fetch" quests as all other RPG's, or have they changed that?

After watching a bunch of videos on this, I really like the way the combat system works.

It isn't like wow in that it is hugely dependent upon healers and preventing your enemy from being able to do anything at all (vis a vis, crowd control) which is ultimately a really stupid model. Instead it is about actively blocking, dodging, knowing the right time to attack, and properly timing your self heals. Very good.

However it seems apparent that there's no world pvp. The WvWvW system they have is more or less the equivalent of just a really big WoW style battleground. If they'd fix that I'd be interested. I just like it so that when you're in the world doing whatever it is you need to do, you could encounter a real combat scenario (e.g. where the threat of death is real, whereas vs NPC's its almost guaranteed victory) at any time, or you could initiate one at any time.

If they'd fix that I'd be interested, e.g. having PvP servers.

Oh 7 hrs ran pretty fast.. Needed more time!!

Kept playing my Guardian. New Fav weapons for solo scepter and focus. shield and mace for groups so I can heal them. and also took armor and weapon crafting.

I like crafting in this game. Everything you need for the current items are listed, easy to find.

found a good spot for copper mining but soon others found it too then it gets harder to get your mats for crafting.

Can't wait for the next beta gotta lvl up my crafting

I didn't realize this game was pushed back AGAIN until December of this year. WTF!? This game has already been pushed back 2 years.

Sure glad they started pre-orders almost a year in advance so they get people to buy into a beta to fix their broken game. Pretty ****ty if you ask me. Now I know no one forced us to buy this game, yet we thought it would be out in about a month in a half and then they pull this.
