i hated the realm of torment. so much so that by the tiem i go to the last guy, i just paid someone to run that mission becasue i couldnt stand it anymore.

it stupid becasue every area has a different degen on you, which by itself is fine, but when the enemies are level 28 and outnumber your (or have an equal party size), it just doesnt seem fair.

I'm with you on that. I've never had nearly as much trouble with heros and henchmen as I have in torment. And is THE MAIN REASON I did not buy eye of the north. I have no interest in playing content that is not atleast reasonably possible by a good henchi/hero group. I wouldn't mind it if bosses were epic and required humans, but trash and explorable areas? no thanks.

tbh realm of torment was a pain the first time that I went there, but I've done it recently with heroes/henchmen and I didn't find it hard.
Oh and gwen's areas are easily doable with heroes/henchmen, even in hard mode. Some dungeons are nearly impossible to do without several other human players in your group, but the explorable areas are easily doable.
I mainly play paragon and I usually take a variant of sab's build, a hero build that I strongly advice you to try, it's very effective in pve.

Nice... I guess I will need a miracle or some Knight In Shinning Armor to help me get through it. I am about to just give up.

something u should know.

guild wars isnt a proper mmo

its more of an online rpg where u can form a party.

i say start off with prophecies (normal guild wars). Factions n Night Fall are good but not as good to start off on.

Thanks for that, so any suggestions on a good MMORPG? ... im getting really bored with first person shooters & im looking for somthing alittle different!

I really fancy GW though, from reading this thread it sounds good, ive heard WOW is full of children & bots?
