Default Hello

Hi, I started this game about 40 days ago~, wasted about 20 days on a necro, and the rest on my ranger. I thought of buying guild wars, so I bought Nightfall seeing that it was the newest and would have the greatest focus. I literally learned the whole game through my ranger, with the very helpful tutorial quests. I simply loved it, and it went smooth, I finished the whole campaign with 81% explored of whole Elona recently. Then I thought that if I actually bought prophecies it would be much better. Why? Much because most skills in the builds posted of recommended are either prophecies. Not only that, but proph as stated by thread starter is a much longer game which gets the player more experience and helps him/her general game play. In addition, these are chapters, and starting from 1 would be more fun wouldn't it? I'm getting proph next week.

This is my own opinion, you might have a completely different one.

I'm still umming and arring about which version to get. Note I have up to £17 to spend, saving money to upgrade to DX10 for Crysis. Guild Wars will be a sort of midway point between now and Crysis' release, I have literally nothing to do atm. I used to play WoW, but I got bored of the grinding in TBC.

I'm fairly experienced with raids, I had a full t2 character but I never enjoyed it. Raiding was like a chore, I prefer the PvP side of things but I like a good story, Oblivion <3.

So my first idea was Prophecies and then I saw that some people thought I should start out with Nightfall. Yet I saw that it is more high-level content related, and gets into raids or whatever (does GW have raids? :/). If that is so, i'm sure Prophecies is for me, so could anyone clear up the 'high-level content' in Nightfall?

Thanks very much

Factions is probably the best to start because you lvl very fast there

Well, I forgot to say this...

I've played all 3 versions of Guild Wars at my friends house. I liked Prophecies as much as Nightfall and found Factions crap. It didn't seem to have any reason for doing the things you were doing, you just did them.

I decided to get Prophecies as it is the cheapest and its always nice to start with the original stuff.

Actually later Factions missions have a much bigger ghost town problem than Prophecies. At least in my recent experience.

If you can't decide, try all three!!! I not sure about all areas, but my local Sam's Club has a cluster pack of all three games for $49, which is less than buying any one individually at a gaming store.

Well great :P I went to a Gamestop, and was going to get Prophecies, without knowing a darn thing about the game.

Dude there said he played Guild Wars, and had all three and he loved Factions the best, so he convinced me to get it.. Now I have no idea what I am doing! :P Lord. I get into the main city after doing the little Mantid Killing thing and then have NO IDEA what I am doing 0_o Get killed alot in the first open area I get to, even with 4 henchmen.

*sigh* This is what I get for wasting my store credit on that. BAH! Guess I am gonna have to wait till next week and get Prophecies. BAH.

Well, I already have Prophecies but not Factions or Nightfall.

I was wondering which would be the better to buy in terms of features/items etc. I was leaning towards Factions because I like the asian style more than the african/eqypt one. Although, I wouldn't what to get it if say Nightfall had some must have features/items in it over factions.

Hi just like to say, if anyone after a certain chapter of GW and live in the UK. Games* is selling Factions and Nighfall for £19.99 each (*In Manchester but could be anywhere else as well). And HMV* is selling Prophecies for £9.99 (again in Manchester). Worth check it out at this prices, even if you live in a different part of the UK.

Thank you.

Well, I decided to go with Nightfall, it was on sale for cheap where I got it so I figured I'd take it while I can since Factions seems to be even cheaper and I can pick it up anytime I have some spare cash.

I was looking at the PlayNC site. They had the 3 "campaigns", and they also had 3 "PVP" versions that seemed to correspond 1-for-1 with the campaigns. If I bought the Prophesies, would I also have to buy the PvP version in order to eventually play PvP, or could I just buy the Prophesies campaign, and then play through it to level 20 and be able to play PvP? The same question goes for the other campaigns. Do you have to buy the campaign and also the PvP edition for that compaign?

No you don't need to buy the PvP edition if you own prophecies. The PvP edition just lets you play PvP and unlocks all the skills. If you own Prophecies you will unlock skills just by playing the game and can also do PvP. The same is true of the other campaigns.

So here I am...

Few things.

I am an EX-WoW player. I was the best PVP player for my classes in all the classes I played. I'm not trying to brag, I was seriously named the best on our forums. I'm just very good at learning all the classes and best deafeating and predicting a human enemy.

I also enjoy playing with friends.
I'd like a more PVP-oreintated game in the end, but also a game that I can sit down, play with my friend, and we can level and all together.

I probably won't want factions. Though, most PVP orientated, I like to introduce myself to the game before I dive into PVP.

So...nightfall or prophecies?

Also...at end game, what do you do? How does the PVP system work? Do you just do it with no reward? I'm ignorant on all that involved Guild wars.

I have all three but if two were taken away I'd say let me keep my Prophecies. The most fun and best times were from the first chapter.
