    World of Warcraft: Dragon Desperation

    Major systems? What qualifies for this? There was an abundance of superfluous, shitty systems in Shadowlands. Then you had Azerite and the visions in Battle. Legendaries in Legion, and M+. Ashran Valley and so forth. Warfronts or whatever they were called in bofa. If M+ doesn't qualify as a...

    Warhammer Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader - turn-based Warhammer 40k RPG from Owlcat Games

    That dude wrote "Unremembered Empire" I don't know about that. That was seriously a tough "read" in audiobook format.

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    That whitewashing is pretty braindead. I never touched GW1, I sorta regret it based on the feedback in this thread but realistically, usually when an MMO is past it's prime, it's over. That's one of the shitty things about online games. Even in regards to WoW, vanilla private servers used to...

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    I disagree on both, but to each his own. That canyon area in Path of Fire had the most fun traversal I personally felt. I actually had a blast just running through on the raptor/bunny/manta ray and dodging the undead mobs. I found Heart of Thorns maps to be kind of painful to traverse but...

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    On the one hand, you have to unlock dumb shit like bag space and pay for the wholly unnecessary living world content. On the other hand, there is only one gear treadmill for PvE and WvW, and you can literally do max level arena pvp with any class at level 2. You don't even have to level toons...

    Bough of Melandru is the one you want, comes with an extra infusion slot iirc. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bough_of_Melandru

    World of Warcraft: Dragon Desperation

    I'm just going to say, one of the most incredible feelings for me on WoW (and one of the few things I liked about vanilla) was starting a Forsaken character and starting in Silver pine and going into the Undercity for the first time. Holy shit, they nailed the atmosphere. The Burtonesque...

    Decline CDPR ruined the games industry by exposing what it truly is.

    This post oof ouch Is there a reason every time I see the word Epic I get indescribable phantom pains?

    World of Warcraft: Dragon Desperation

    They appear to be making some appreciable rumblings for the new xpac. Notably, they are talking about pvp conquest gear scaling to a set level. This doesn't entirely remove the hamster wheel, as you still need a full set, but it is an improvement. Shadowlands was weird because it was bracketed...

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    This is what makes both WoW and GW2 difficult to play. Half of it is rolling the FOTM lottery or just dealing with getting shit on. There are loads of dead talents in GW2, including PvP split talents that have 20 second ICD in PvE with a 300s ICD in PvP, making them virtually unusable in PvP...

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    When it comes to furries, at least the Charr are pretty metal, and actually by far the least gay faction in the game. They'd probably fit in in old world Warhammer. The mount system in Path of Fire and particularly the vertical environment traversal is remarkable. Side note - I have seen a...

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    They never do, though. And it still wouldn't make any sense as most encounters have either adds, multiple bosses and/or tank swaps, necessitating at least two tanks. Let me know when a find a good MMO.

    The Guild Wars 2 Thread

    Absolutely nothing about the holy Trinity makes any sense in the context of class fantasy. Arguably, it is a necessary game design element, but class fantasy? And to be honest, no, it isn't even really necessary, GW2 completely dispensed with it. Do you seriously think the dragon beating down...
