After midterms are done on Friday and I get back to my apartment on Saturday evening after going home for a free meal and free laundry (parents ftw!!1!), I plan on spending a large chunk of my 10 days of spring break in this game.

Is that preview weekend on 3/24 a non-PVP event?

I was at Best Buy earlier and almost picked up the $10 preorder of Factions. It came with some exclusive in-game items (probably nothing all that great) plus some other cool stuff (I can't really remember what, but it definitely seemed like it was worth the money), plus, keys for you and a friend to get into beta events as well as a free trial key to give to someone else for the first game (or you if you haven't played the first game) and the ability to start playing a day before the in-store release of the game, which I thought was pretty cool.

My brother was telling me this last update they had nerfed EVERYTHING. And made farming gryphons next to impossible. He wasn't happy with the game at all.

Holy crap...you guys weren't kidding about this update being enormous. I've had the GW client open since I posted the last message and it's already downloaded like 30 MB before the program opened, and now, on the login screen, it' up to 256MB! This is crazy!

EDIT: Wow...380MB and going.

That little Z or lightning bolt + the MB amount IS an indicator of downloading, right? I've noticed that in the game for some time now and always just figured that thing was downloading the patches and whatnot.

EDIT 2: Good lord! 545MB. How big is this?!

It's preloading all of factions, so it's safe to assume that it's pretty dang huge!

Holy C*** I didnt let it finish downloading at login screen nowits 545MB+? rather big.

I think one of the effects the latest skill balance changes had was trying to make other builds and professions match in effectiveness with b/p ranger groups entering Tombs UW .PyroNuker and Warrior skills mostly been boosted imo.Rodgort's Invocation fries them extra crispy now.

Recently its been all about barrage/pet rangers + one MM and/or a Monk groups forming up to go get their, incresingly getting cheaper in price, green drops.You needed to wait alot to get yourself in a team if you were not a b/p (before update). Seems like b/p is the fastest way to do it.I wanted a bigger slice too so I made myself a R/Me he's been a 20 with a 19 pet since divinity coast mission, still a long way to go for him.

EDIT:imo green drops are getting less and less exciting unless you get a Victo Shield, but the challenge in hoh is still there and gives you a sense of accomplishment when you finish it, even when you get no drops.

I don't understand why it's preloading factions. It would make sense to do so if I put in a preorder key or something, but I haven't. So, if I was not going to play the beta event on the 24th nor buy Factions when it is released, I'd have all this extra HDD space taken up for nothing?

That's just bad form.

Just guessing here.I have read somewhere that you can still continue to play original guildwars without buying Factions but people who have installed both might grow stronger than you because of the new gears they are likely to get from Cantha world.This would only make sense if they can bring those gears back to Tyria, so updates might have something to do with situations where you need to see Cantha related objects/skills on your Tyria only client.

I know something like this happened/is going to happen in CoH/CoV too, when player controlled heroes and villains meet.

Bingo.

Everyone needs to preload factions, because even if you don't play the factions campaign, people from the factions side of things will still be in the original game aswell, and you need that content supported.
