So I’ve spent a few hundred hours playing the first guild wars. It was sort of my main game after I stopped playing TF2 and before I started playing League. It was pretty good.
Now I recently purchased GW2. It was… interesting. I played for 5 hours today. I kept wondering when the tutorial would end, but then I realized that there was no tutorial – the game was just really simple and bad. They completely revamped the skills so that you couldn’t have your own unique build anymore. You would just spam the same simple spells and grind stuff. I just hit level 10 and I’m using the same few spells and it’s getting boring. Maybe the end game is better, but this was a big problem in GW1 that it would take forever for you to get appropriately leveled.
