  1. Well we aren't even sure if they look like ents. All we have to go on is that people who like ents and people who like elves will be happy. Doesn't really give much as to what they look like. My guess is a mix of the old design and the Sidhe from the cancelled Guild Wars Utopia project: http://wiki.guildwars.com/images/c/c8/SidheFemale.jpg http://wiki.guildwars.com/images/f/f0/SidheMale.jpg
  2. According to Kristen Perry, the person in charge of the Sylvari redesign, they now should appeal to people who either want the look of an elf like creature or the look of an ent style creature. So the new design is somewhere between an elf and an ent. We shall see next week when they do Sylvari week and give out all the lore. As for PvP, once gamescom comes around there are going to be a ton of videos about the stuff.
  3. If your mind is blown now I'm afraid of what will happen when gamescom comes around. They are showing off PvP, Sylvari, and Asura at that convention for the first time.
  4. Guild Wars 2 PvP has been known for a while. Both types of PvP are separate from the PvE content Structured PvP (Tournaments) - 5 on 5 fights - lobby style matchmaking systems - capture the flag, take the objective style maps - has both ranked and unranked - level does not matter. everyone is auto leveled to 80 and has access to all skills for their profession. Un-Structured PvP (World vs World vs World) - 100's of players from three servers fighting against each - three servers that rotate every two weeks - each map is broken down into four sections (one for each server and then a middle map that acts as a crossroad) - level does matter here. so yes, you can have level 5's teamed up fighting a level 80 - dynamic events within the PvP maps (this is also hinted at for the 5 on 5 tournament maps) Some other facts: - you can level from 1 to 80 strictly though PvP (both structured and un-structured) - PvP has it's own gear sets separate from PvE - three sided (yes, it is kind of sad it has taken this long for a game developer to do DAoC style PvP again)

    Professions =D

    @Blazek. Just a heads up - traditional tanks and healers are gone in this game (HOLY TRINITY IS DEAD AND GONE HERE). So go with whatever profession you like the playstyle of the most. From what we know of the aggro system (it's similar to GW1) is that the mobs always go for the squishy's first. The heavy armor professions (warrior and guardian) have no taunt ability. You need teamwork to keep the mobs from beating on the poor squishy. With healing, there are no abilities that directly target an ally. The three group heal skills we know of are: Elementalist (water attunement - healing rain, aoe, stand in to get health back), Warrior (banner - stand near to get health back), and the Engineer (healing turret - sprays out a mist that regenerates the health of those nearby). ArenaNet has stated that every class will have a skill like this in addition to their own self heal. Profession breakdown based on playstyles: 1) Elementalist - likes to blow things up with magic 2) Warrior - likes to bash things in the face with a variety of weapons 3) Ranger - pet class, ranged damage dealer, nature 4) Necromancer - pet class, loves using the power of death and disease to wreak havoc 5) Guardian - likes to bash things in the face with the help of magic 6) Thief - steals things from the enemy and stabs them in the back 7) Engineer - likes to blow things up with technology Every class can fulfill the roles of support, control, and damage, no need to worry about the skills.

    Professions =D

    Me personally? I'm playing a Mesmer in Guild Wars 2. Yes, yes, I know Mesmer isn't officially out yet but there is way too much evidence pointing at its return: - purple fan lady concept art (every profession has a color associated with it, the Mesmer is purple) - lots of developers hints at 'mind tricks' in the game - the oh so famous quote: of the last two professions (this was said before the engineer release) one would be new (engineer) and one would be a returning profession (Mesmer) - Monk, Dervish, Assassin, Paragon, and Ritualist (the other old GW professions) will not be returning due to ArenaNet not visiting Cantha or Elona and having no dedicated healer As for how the Mesmer will play in GW2? I have no idea. It's probably going to be flashy and very visual.

  13. Oh dear, then we may not see her around for a while. Last time someone did that they disappeared for a week...

    Just a suggestion. If she gets an interview can we have her and Doom do a duet? They both can sing, I'm curious how they would be together. On a more serious note. Kyree! Your application is 3 pages... well, guess that's a sign we all like you and want you to be a part of the guild.
