looks like an interesting expansion and I'll certainly be getting it.

GW2 is still a great game. Just wish I had more time to play.

I'm all for buying the expansion pack for GW2. I'm fascinated by the idea of guild halls and all that entails. I'm not so happy about the idea of more jumping. I know what they're trying with the more up and down style of maps, but from a non-jumping champion point of view, its all daunting.

I really want the new class and any and all new armors that will be coming out with this. More dress up options please!

Yes of course!!

Its at that low point where you (or atleast I) have pretty much done everything you can/want.
Besides doing daily's and Guild Events, thats pretty much it for me.

So I am really really looking forward to new stuff to do and to explore.
New Area's, new Proffesion, Guild Halls and yes Jumping Puzzles and hopefully much much more.

If there'd be a separate Guildhall module I could download and install instead of the whole game, I'd be sure to get it.

Then I could just hang out and idle there, as a decorative piece.


-Do we have steam_id thread somewhere here?

Don't think so. Probably need one though.

GW2 HOT Purchase Link

The price is higher than I had expected and it looks like we have to buy a new character slot separately (or pony up for deluxe) to play the new class. I'm trying really hard not to feel super disappointed.

Huh. That's pricey. Maybe I won't be getting it right away.

I was planning on getting it, but two things bother me: first, the price being as much as it is. I understand that comes with the core game, which leads me to the second point... I am really irritated that there is no option to buy just the expansion as their was with the first game. That means someone who buys this "expansion" gets all the same content that I will get, but it'll cost me the price of the original purchase plus this expansion. Now one can argue that my original purchase gave me a couple years of gaming that they didn't get, which I do understand. It wouldn't sting quite so much if they did something like give us a character slot for being a loyal customer.

In the end though, it comes down to the fact that I simply don't have enough time to play much anymore. For the price, I would expect as much content as the original game had, which I don't see happening. And since I won't have as much time to play this lesser content, it doesn't seem like a good value to me. If I didn't have a baby to tend to 24 hours a day, it might be a different story lol.

I'm with you 100%...minus the baby. Hopefully they see the light and add some sort of expansion price point. Otherwise, they're not getting my money til the thing goes on sale/drops in price.

I'll be getting it for sure, I'm still pretty active in the game as of today. I've never dropped real $$ on the gem store ever or on game extras, so I don't mind spending a little coin to get, what I am sure will be $60 worth of content, at least from the expansion. I'll probably go deluxe.

With the change to everyone no matter the version getting a slot (or two if you buy the $75 or $99 versions), I'll probably get one. Not sure if I'll get one for the second acct. I may wait and see what the expansion holds before buying the second copy.

The addition of a character slot for existing customers is enough to make me feel appreciated. I went ahead and prepurchased. This isn't the first time ANet has screwed up its customer relations which is a shame since they obviously do care. They need to run some of these things past focus groups or something.

That is expensive at £34.99.

I've been time limited so far this year as job has been manic so have contented myself with (relatively short) stints playing Steam games on and off, and even those I have played less the last couple of months.

So I don't see me pre-purchasing sadly. Probably wait until launch and wait to hear what the guild and wider player base feedback is like. I do want to support the developer so I do anticipate eventually getting it but not likely to be first off the starter block this time round
