Well...Best Buy had NWN2 back in stock, so I went with that instead. I guess GW is going ot have to wait a bit...hopefully they have it on sale soon, down to maybe $40 or something, and I'll snag it then.

i really would like to play this game, but i dont go for PvP.. i just like grouping and questing against hard foes like in WoW.

i dont think it would sustain me, would it?

Sure...there are tons of quests in the PvE side of the game, but you're capped at level 20, and in the case of Factions, that comes pretty damned quick.

The games are fun, but if you're looking for a Diablo-like experience (crazy weapons and armor), you're going to be disappointed.

yeah, i figured that. shame, i really like the art style. it has a nice mix of different influences, and i like the way combat looks.


we need more actionMMO's, where you are rewarded for player skill in combat, and less on who has teh axe of firey death+22 (although they are cool too)

There are lots of boss battles in GW, especially in Nightfall. And there are areas which are similar to the raid dungeons in WoW. The elite missions in Factions are extremely long dungeons which you try to complete with a team larger than usual (12 players that is... not much compared to WoW's 40 player dungeons, but these elite missions feels pretty chaotic as well). Personally I'm not fond of those dungeons since they take literally hours to complete.

If you're looking for a MMO which is based on skill (and not about being a higher level than everybody else or having that uber +45 Axe of Doom) this is the ONLY MMO you'll ever find which is like that.

There's lots of talk about GW being purely about PvP and that's just a big lie. There's far more PvE content than PvP content. It's just that the game excels at PvP compared to all other MMOs. But it has a ton of fun pve content as well (which is especially true now as Nightfall is released)

There are 14-day trial keys in the collector's edition of Factions and Nightfall...maybe someone here could hook you up.
