I don't know, not too far...past The Breaking or whatever and just in that general area where everyting was like level 8-10. My brother and I were the only two playing together and it was just too difficult. We kept getting mobbed by like 4-8 level 8s or more and getting our asses handed too us. I got annoyed, then a new computer and never re-installed the game.

Sums up my experience with the game. The whole time I was playing I was thinking how I'd rather be playing WoW.

It just sucks because GW has so much potential, but it isn't taking off like it could/should. Making it easier to solo or at least go with only another person, would be awesome.

Having actual item vendors would also be fantastic.

Having more POWERFUL items and weapons would be great.

An interface that gave stats would be incredibly helpful.

The lack of goals and time/reward was why I stopped playing. I felt like I was not accomplishing anything and frankly the controls and interface are very clunky. Ah well can't please everyone.

superklye, Ninjaman09, I would really recommend that you give the game another shot. The Searing is about ~5% into the game, you've just begun for heaven's sake! I agree that the game is hard, but IMHO I am a very bad gamer with horrid reflexes and concentration, and even I have been able to adapt. I have a few suggestions:
- This game was NOT meant to be soloed. You can pick up henchmen at all towns post-searing. That said, the game is an order of magnitude more fun with pick-up-groups.
- Make sure you have a primary Monk in your group at all times, henchman or otherwise, otherwise you will die. Incidentally, most 1337 solo farming builds are also centered around Monks.
- Don't get overwhelmed by the side-quests. There are just too many of them, and if you start doing all of 'em, you will lose interest pretty quick. Stick to the primary quests and the Missions. The Missions are what advance the game's storyline. IMHO most of the GW missions have been designed very well and are thoroughly fun to play (very different from regular quests, *much* more fast-paced).
- I agree with your point about item vendors. You do have powerful weapons, but the drops are very rare. Even if you have the most powerful weapon in the game, though, you *will* die if you don't have a Monk in your team. Also, weapons matter pretty much only for Warriors and Rangers.
- Overall, this game is a lot about how you use your skills.

Hope you enjoy it

I think I'll give it another shot. Maybe over Thanksgiving or Christmas. I mean, I bought it and it's no monthly fee...I've got nothing to lose but time.

Cool angshuman, maybe I will give it another go. But I'm gonna have to burn out on WoW first.

I "beat" the game about a month after the release... after that it seemed pointless to play. I still loved doing PvE but it was kind of dumb because there was nothing to look for to want.


Is there any point in PvE? Any better gear to look for? because last time i played, there was no such thing as "better" gear... just crappy vendor stuff I already have.

there is lots of newer gear deoending on how long ago you played. and for me, sorrow furnace is okay, but the REAL fun is on Underworld. it is enourmous and i love exploring down there. it forces you to work as a team.

I installed this game and played for a couiple of days. Just couldn't get in to it. Wondering if I should give it a go again.

Is it soloable? After dealing with wow's community I'm just looking for a game where I can do my own thing lol and not deal with all of the rejects.
