Thanks, Mark

My first post... so whew - here we go....

I have been playing Prophecies since... hmmm Factions came out.. - always on a budget - where GW excels having no monthly fee... anyway... to the point...

I just payed £25 for the complete GW (AmazonUK or PLAY). Proph, Factions, NF AND GweN (EoTN)- now that IS a bargain, especially as there is still no date for GW2 yet.

Interesting that many players still prefer Nightfall - I was going to start out with Rit/Necro in factions... purely from the following the series perspective... - but maybe I should look to Nightfall and then go back... I can take heroes with me right???

Great to be in an active forum for once

I finally got DSL out on the edge of nowhere where I live about 5 months ago. I used to play Neverwinter Nights 2 before & thought GW looked interesting. I did the math & figured out that at around $30 per chapter, it was cheaper to get the Trilogy that just came out at $50. (You might be able to find it even cheaper now.)

I liked it so much that I also got EotN.

www.NewEgg.com had specials going on a couple of weeks ago, probably still does.
Proph Platinum was $12.99 (includes EoTN)
Factions was $9.99
free shipping, no tax (US)

Nightfalls is not easy to find cheap. gamersloot.net sells a key only for $18.99, but I don't know if they are legit.

That would make the whole thing for $42.

You probably don't get some of the bells and whistles (bonus weapons, fire imp, ....) but that doesn't make a difference in your gameplay.

the other option is to get Nightfall from the online store ($30) and you definitely get the fire imp with this one, and still cheaper than a boxed set. the manuals are available on the main web site should you care to read them.

You should buy all games, Because you cant do ANYTHING in the pvp world without all 4, and not much even in PvE without all 4.

I have nightfall now, and IF i buy EOTN only now, what profession is best to play in PVP and PVE to be good? You know because of lack of skills from the first two chapters. So i guess dervish and paragon? Will i be able to get ALL skills for dervish and paragon if i have only NF and EOTN?

Because people say i will suck without ALL chapters.

Hey guys, I'm going to buy the trilogy but I'm wondering.... does this mean after I install all of them, will it be one big 'world' or will I have to play each chapter differently?

It'll be one big world, sort of - well you can take your characters between the campaigns so its practially one big world. But spread over 3 maps.

If you're only interested in PvP and not at all in PvE, get the PvP Access kit. Here's a comparison I wrote on a help thread:

On a PvP Access Kit:
Play with PvP-only characters. All campaigns and expansion professions, skills, items able to be unlocked.
Play any class, any secondary.
Unlocking insignias, runes, weapon mods, skills once = unlock for all characters made.
Hit 'J' command to create all your equipment.
Enter PvP. Learn PvP. Play PvP.

Buying Campaigns and playing with PvE and PvP characters:
Play with both PvE and PvP-only characters. Only things that can be unlocked depends on the campaigns and expansions purchased.
Play any class, pay to unlock secondary profession with PvE characters.
Unlocking insignias, runes, weapon mods, skills once = unlock for account and heroes, BUT does not make it instantly available on another PvE character made. It is available on a PvP character made.
You can unlock by playing PvE and buying things to unlock or quest for it. You can PvP with a PvP character, gain factions, unlock, but that's doing the same as if you had a PvP only account.
You can only use 'J' command on PvP-only characters. If you want to use a PvE character to PvP you will have to collect all the equipment needed to PvP well and have all the right skills available. Which will be time costly as well as costly on the GW gold.
Enter PvE. Enter PvP. Learn PvE. Learn PvP. Play PvE. Play PvP.

From this point on I'm talking about a PvP only account:

You get more skills by using the Balthazar factions you gain from PvPing. 1k, 1.5k, 3k Balth faction unlocks range of items and skills (3k & 6k for heroes). Unlocking something is account wide. So say you unlocked an ele skill/item on your Elementalist, when you make a Necromancer that skill/item is available to be used.
Balth faction is now much easier to gain with the daily Zaishen Combat quests in Temple of Balthazar. It's now faster to unlock things for a PvP only account, just watch your Balth limit when you PvP and turn in for the zaishen reward. You start out with a 10k Balth Faction cap, gaining ranks in PvP titles increases that limit.

What you do when you buy the PvP access kit is find out what items (inscriptions, runes, insignias, weapon mods) and skills you need in order to run a useful build in PvP. Don't waste the free unlocks on useless things. An idea of where to start with builds: http://pvx.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Another good thing to do is to observe, hit 'B,' PvP matches. Watch what people are using in Guild vs Guild and Heroes' Ascent. Continue PvPing and observing, join any guild that does any PvP to further learn how things work.

If you only pvp you only need to worry about the PvP versions of skills. GW adjusted some skills so it's not too powerful in PvP, so there're PvP versions of normal skills. GW added PvE skills only for PvE side only.

The [xxx] Unlock Pack is just a quicker way of unlocking things so people have a faster start in creating [items & skills for builds]. It's like paying $20 for 2 weeks of pvp to unlock things. The zaishen quests help greatly in reducing the time to gain balth faction so up to you whether or not you want to pay to unlock or not.

If you want to PvP only, don't waste time trying to unlock with PvE. I play PvE as well as PvP, and if you're relying on PvE to unlock the things you need for PvP you'll be wasting too much time. In PvE, the things you unlock by identifying items are random, buying unidentified gold items to unlock items will be costly for random IDs, buying skills as a way to unlock is costly, doing quests to unlock skills is time consuming. If you want to make PvE character to PvP with there're many more things to do.

More of the specifics on official wiki: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Main_Page

Default GW2 around the corner ...

Assuming GW2 comes out this year, do those of you familiar with the game feel it would be worthwhile to buy any of the original series or to just hold off? I've read that GW really isn't soloable (at least in many places, not enough to complete missions), and if many players migrate to the new game, the original may become difficult to play.

I have other things I can do before GW2, and don't want to waste my money unnecessarily, but would love to play if this trilogy + EOTN will remain viable. Thanks for any help.

I'd say GW2 is around a few corners. You wouldn't be wasting your money, especially if you plan on purchasing GW2. The original will provide you with the story that the sequel is built upon, and it's a really enjoyable experience as well. Most of the people that say it's dead are the ones that have been playing since release. For a new player, there is still plenty of content to sift though and enjoy.

Thanks, that's helpful. I guess my main concern isn't how enjoyable the content would be, but rather how many people would still be around. Not enjoyable if I can't complete quests due to lack of teammates. Sounds like I'll give it a whirl, though, with the Prophecies+EOTN first.

Eye of the North is a good choice, because you are able to acquire heroes for your party to fill in the gaps left by real players. There is a 3 hero cap per person, so all you would need is another player to bring their heroes and you have got yourself a fairly adequate team. Of course if you don't have another person available, there are henchmen in every town to even out the party. Henchmen are less favorable than heroes, though, since you can't customize their skills or armor.

And the release dates listed in stores have said it would come out end of oct 08...

The release dates stores give are almost never right.
