The first one i bought was factions, i didnt like the storyline or the asian theme but when iut got to the luxons and kurzicks it got really good, probably the most impressive landscapes in the whole of guild wars and i loved the competition between the 2 factions, nightfall for me i disliked the scenery a lot untill desolation but the stor<line was much better than factions, phrophecies i liked the fact that u could run anywhere pretty much and people didnt have to do the whole storyline.

If a friend asked me, I would say get nightfall. Its got the most attention right now, and you can get prophecies later for cheap.

Personally I have all three and would recommend all three... you need it for metagame. But for now if only 1 then nightfall just because thats the current focus.

FYI, my local Sam's Club has all 3 games (and the Prophecies is the GotY version) in a special pack for $99.99.

Just throwing this out there:

While I agree that Nightfall is a very polished game, both in flow as well as the Heroes addition... I have to ask you people who are suggesting Nightfall as the first campaign to new players, do you -really- want new players throwing themselves against Jennur's Horde, or worse, the entire Realm of Torment?

I know experienced PvEers that raged at the Realm of Torment--not because it was unbeatable, but rather because it just wasn't fun. If some players like high-end insanity like that, good for them... but I personally wouldn't wish Realm of Torment exploration on a new player.

Experienced players know what skills to put on their monk heroes, or understand the power of AI interrupts, how to build an effective MM on the Master of Whispers (assuming they picked him! Remember, new Nightfall-only players can't get Olias!), and so forth.

New players who are just figuring out the usefulness of Protective Spirit and Broad Head Arrow? :/ Not so much.

I would say buy prophecies first, get use to playing it then buy nightfall. once ur getting into pvp play, buy factions and its a short storyline then ur up for pvp play. btw...nightfall is based in a north african place, not egypt-ur thinkin of another game called nightfall but is not guild wars.

The first one I got was Prophecies but that was mostly because it was £10 at a time when Nightfall wasn't out and Factions was still £30+ :P

I would recommend either Nightfall or Prophecies like most of the people in this thread, the only thing I haven't liked much about Nightfall was the Sunspear point grind, although I got 500-1000 very quickly on my Dervish at the Issnur Isles and Mehtani Keys

Personally, I feel Factions was the best, then Prophecies, then Nightfall.

I'm big on environment and setting in games, I got sick and tired of how so much of Elona looks the same, while Factions and Prophecies had wonderful contrast and areas.

Prophecies would have come first, however, I felt it was too long and drawn out. Honestly, Factions is just about the right length. If you disagree, keep in mind I'm the kind of player who does every quest and gets Bonus/Masters on every mission before progressing (even the Mursaat missions before you're infused =D)

So that's my take on things, if you don't know what to buy I'd suggest Nightfall as you'll find the most help and groups along the way.

I wouldn't suggest buying any GW versions. Everytime they add anything new to the game it causes many bugs in previous versions. Then you run into the patches creating new bugs , then the next patch creates new bugs ....

The seriousness of the server lag issues are growing daily instead of getting any better, but what do they do about it ?

GW solution that seems most prevelent is throwing another special event weekend at you and then causing more bugs. How many times can you disguise attempts at fixing bugs as a "special event download" ?

To further explain my reason for "no suggestion" would be that the game is in a perpetual Beta status. The streaming data insures that you will never have the same game that you purchased in the store and will always be subject to glitches that are caused by untested updates to the game. While other game companies advertise "beta" releases and sometimes pay people to test them. Guild Wars makes you pay and then force you to become a tester.

Cool

I personally got prohcies first then got nightfall and then factions, and heres my sum of the three. Prohcies has the best board out off them all and gets especially good after Yac. Nightfall for me was the best because you get heros and the missions are a little less boring, i have most of my characters started in nightfall. Factions has the best drops by far but i don't like it that much because its easy to get to the mainland and once you do your screawed unless you have beaton all of the quests on the mainland because as soon as you hop across the pond you face level 20-22's, so my advise to you is either get nightfall or prohcies first,its probably better to get nightfall though.

I only looked at the table, but Grind for Proph isn't "low" by any means.

Thanks so much Inde!!! (btw Nice chart)

If you're a PvEer like myself, i definitely recommend prophecies as a start if you're new to MMORPGs even though Guild Wars it not considered a MMO by everyone, it's cheaper and the learning curve is very smooth. If you have some experience with MMOs i recommend Nightfall, you'll get into the action earlier. On the storyline side, i believe prophecies storyline was the best one. In any case don't buy Factions as your first Guild Wars.

Man.. I wish I would've ran across this site and post yesterday. I'm a wow player, or was, and was looking for a new game last night so I see Prophecies and Factions and as far as I knew factions was the newest Gw so I got it. Didn't know anything about Nf and didn't think it would be wise to buy the original Gw when I figured everybody played Factions so... lol so far I don't find Factions hard at all, but it's pretty confusing at the moment. My chars lvl 13 already but I still don't know that much about the game... I guess it'll come in time just like it did with Wow, I couldn't name how many times in that game when I 1st started I said "screw this it's too much to learn". Anyways, after reading this post I think I'm gonna try to get ahold of Prophecies and play it all the way through before I go any further in Factions, just to learn more about wth I'm doing. Nice post though, good info for a noob

im new to guild wars and have little mmorpg experience. I am just wondering if the quests in guild wars are boring and draggy (pointless traveling, repetitive, etc)! Also which Guild Wars game will have the most people playing (please rank from top to lowest)? Thanks!!

You guys might not agree with me but i think the faction is by far the easiest to start with. Altho proph. is a good chapter, it is pretty damn long in the beggining and many newbie might want to stop playing GW just because of it.

The first chapter i brought was faction. I made a ranger and had a lot of fun. A few month later I bought NF wich was Highly addicting and insanly fun. Then I brought proph, It was soooo boring, receive and average of 100 exp for quest harder and alot longer then those in Faction that gives 1,500 exp... If I would've have started by proph i would've most likely stop playing GW by now.
In addition Faction and NF character are way richer then proph one.

Facion starts to be fun when you reach level 20 since you're gonna die badly if you're not 20, yet achieving lvl 20 takes less then less then 5 day of playing (heck, its possible in 1 day...).

Nightfall start to be fun second after the tutorial mish. You get hero and start with enought cash to get some skills.

Proph. start to be fun once you arrive to kryta but if you dont get run, IT TAKES TIME. Also you normally only achieve lvl 20 around the last quarter of the game.

Go with Faction or NF.

Prophecies has one advantadge- skill quests. They give u a sense of growing.
But its excruciantingly slow leveling, you will only see the Elite skills quite late, the AP quests are late, very loooooooooooooong missions and by no means easy.

Factions is fast paced, but not very interesting, the city landscape is quite annoying and the Flood...er... Aflicted are ugly enemies. The good is lvl 20 comes soon, good money good xp, lvl 20 henchies quite soon.

Nightfall have heroes, and heroes are smarter than most players. Problem is new players wont have many skils to equip them nor the experience to do good builds.

If u starting with a friend, by all means go nightfall. Its quite enjoyable with a friend (all are, but nightfall seems designed for it).

An advice, start with a Warrior or Monk. Rangers and Dervish are good 1st character too.

Stay way from Mesmers, Assassins and Ritualists.
