Are you forced into picking one of the elite specialisations if you want to compete in high end content? From what i've read, you are, which is very disappointing because the elite specs often don't line up with the original. The ranger ones for instance play nothing like a ranger.

I would also like to add that with a mesmer you can switch to survivability instantly by merely changing how you play; keep illusions up and move around and enemies will either have a hard time hitting you or may not even fight you. I would also like to add that in a mere aesthetic sence, the mesmer is imo the most brutal because when you shatter illusions and the enemy dies, that's like they die because their mind got destroyed. Freaking horrifying when you think about it.

Imo, "this is too complex for beginners" is bad advice. The best time to learn complexity in a job is while levelling through the story naturally. That beginner that took a warrior at first, only to switch to thief later is going to that difficulty jump _way_ harder than if they just started there in the first place. "Newbs pick a simple class" only applies if you're boosting.

If you're thinking about starting gw2 in 2021 but you're unsure, try it for sure. the game feels more alive than it did months after launch, no kidding. no zone is dead, there's people EVERYWHERE and the community is super helpful in general. it's also not a nightmare to catch up on or miss out on. there's 2 expansions, one that adds a hang glider to use and the other adds mounts. besides that there is no gear treadmill so you don't have to catch up on anything starting fresh :)

Man, before I moved to Japan, this game was my life. I remember being so angry about Elementalists being focused in all specs about the interweaving of the attunements. I wanted to play only lightning because lightning is the coolest element for magic ever, so sad that it was useless to "main" an element that as not fire/earth.

@Heroic Flamingo Sadly there are a couple of times when they are just removed, even during fights. If you enter a new map or instance they are removed but that is ok.

I remember maining mesmer many years ago when Heart of Thorns was only in development. This was a hard class to level with i almost quit 2 or 3 times. But in PvP hoo boy. I remember there was a condition build which made your clones put debuffs on people when destroyed. So you see some warrior running at you, you jump, switch, dodge, evade, create army of clones, he cleaves them all and dies to bleed and poison. The skill ceiling was insane.

Well to the Guild Wars community 😀 Thief just has a steeper learning curve as you have to manage initiative which means you have to think more about when to use skills whereas most classes just work on cooldowns so you can pretty much use skills whenever they recharge ☺️

Starting to watch your videos- love how you break things down. I think my only desire would be to have a pretty quick run through of the professions- (as opposed to the super in depth one!) that maybe tells us what "class" from other games they are most like to play. Someone said Rev was like DK and DH mixed- and that jumped out as a great way to sell professions.

same problem here and it's gotten to a point where I'm losing interest in the game which is a shame since there is so much good content to discover. I know a lot of people suggest to just switch between them, but that just doesn't feel right to me. I need one "main" and I noticed that when I try to force myself to stick to one class, I tend to enjoy it more after some time. But still, I never really stick to one in the long term and it's driving me crazy. In general I'm quite jumpy, one day I feel like I want to be a powerful mage, the next I want to be a melee rogue. Also I'm afraid of playing more difficult classes like elementalist, cause people might expect me to perform at a certain level.

If you have a decent build, there's no reason why you can't use that for everything! However, there are certain skills and specializations which are better or worse in PvP or PvE so you will be at a disadvantage to someone who has specific builds for different game types 😃 I would say you can certainly play one class for all game modes but having a build template for PvE and one for PvP is advised 😊

Wow this looks so much fun tho. I've never thought an mmorpg can has that much different classes and specialization and unique play style. Graphics looks legit, armor style look damn cool, I think fashion is a thing in this game, and looks a lot to explore. I've tried many mmos (teso, ffxiv, bdo, etc), however I only play wow regularly yet quit during bfa, but gw2 really grows in me and I was looking to play an mmo. I suppose it's not a p2w game either so if it's then I really would love to give it a try. For a first time player, according the impression that I had from your video, I really liked Elementalist, Necromancer, Guardian, Mesmer and Revenant.

Hey man ☺️ as your wife is playing as a ranger, Guardian potentially would be a good match as you can tank the enemies and buff yourself up ☺️ however, if you're not sold on that class, you could ask her to stick on a tanky pet like a bear and play as a spellcaster as you have suggested! Mesmer is a hell of a lot of fun but can take a bit of practice and be a bit squishy! I would say Necromancer is always a good shout. It's quick and easy to learn, enjoyable to play and surprisingly tanky for a spellcaster 😃

Do not play this game. Reasons that no youtuber mention 1. old old old crap engine, no matter how good your pc is, you will struggle with graphic. 2. PVP bots everywhere! any pvp below platinum are basically half players, half bots. 3.extremely slow pve update. 4. no wvw update for years. I am not going talking about this game have basically no balance at all. New to game? you will get a match with a guy title with . Without covid lockdown, this game would die in 2021, Arena already fired a lot of developers.

Super helpful! I just finished installing GW2 and I was trying to decide, having a hard time, but your video helped a lot! I'm definitely going to start with a Necromancer, looks really fun.

Hey man, I think I speak a bit more about it in this video - https://youtu.be/021FbBfujiU 😃 There are two different types of PvP, structured PvP which is arena combat which is predominantly 5v5 but there are 2v2 arena matches as well. Then you have world PvP which is where three servers take part in a large scale war to take control of points on the map 😃

I haven't played in a few years due to losing interest after things just felt ignored for years, aside from PVE. What positive changes has the game made in two years over all? Has the story improved? Is our character still written to be flat and monotone? Was WvW ever fixed or improved upon? aside from the mount. Any new dungeons beyond Arah and vanilla game? Fractals and Raids do not count. any new customization options for Charr and non human races?

I just started playing GW2 and I leveled up a Mesmer/Chronomancer. Completed the main story and working through Path of Fire. I enjoy Chrono, but I would prefer something a little tankier/more self-sustainable for PvE and Open World. After watching a bunch of guides and gameplay videos I've narrowed it down to: Reaper/Scourge Necromancer, Renegade Revenant and Firebrand Guardian. Would love more experienced player's input, as I have a level 80 boost I'm itching to use. I'm leaning Reaper, but the other two look excellent as well.

@Heroic Flamingo Hey I super appreciate the feedback! I used the boost on a Necromancer and started the PoF content. What a world of difference it made, and I haven't even gotten to Reaper yet!

As someone who's main character is also a Chrono, I would say that the Reaper should tick all of the boxes you are looking for! It's a lot tankier than the Mesmer and a hell of a lot of fun to play 😃

Lol first class I dove into was the thief and I can profess they are a bit difficult compared to others but I would consider elementalists harder to play and I love the mesmers I just cannot play them because of the purple butterflies

I started GW2 after quitting WoW, got initially hooked and purchased the expansions too. But after playing an year and completing fractals i felt empty, like i am not doing anything worth spending 3-4 hours a day, besides there was no joy. Moved to ffxiv in January; enjoying it alot. Nothing wrong with this game though, still way better than WoW.

@Mixes I meant the content is not very 'diverse' or enjoyable in GW2 once you do it all; on the contrary ffxiv is still fun because of the huge content sack.

@Heroic Flamingo Hahah no offense, mostly people speak too fast which makes it sometimes hard to follow, especially since English isn't my native language. So I like it better when someone talks more calm and slowly, just 0.25x faster was the perfect speed for impatient me while still understanding it very well. xD

Ugh I still don’t know what class I wanna play I’m new to pc but not mmo I find it kinda hard to move but also use my skills all at the same time I’ll eventually get the hang of it I’ve tried guardian engineer and necro I may try out thief but I’m undecided I’ve played characters up to about 20 to kinda get a feel for them but I’m just not sure

It's such a difficult choice to make I know! I definitely wouldn't recommend a Thief if you're still quite new with the game and struggling with all the buttons! Perhaps check out the leveling build guides I'm doing on my channel for a better idea of how to play a specific class ☺️ at the end of the day, you should go with whatever one you enjoy the most and you'll eventually get better 😃
