    is drakes on a plain the one where you get a scythe that's actually a banana on a stick

    yes

    that is precisely what it is

    and then Koss starts bitching about the Balthazar-blasted drakes on the Balthazar-blasted plain

    I used the banana scythe with my mesmer and killed people with Illusionary Weaponry in the level 10 and under arena

    every expansion has added something crazy to the skills mix

    like Assassins could suddenly teleport to enemies or allies and they have to do their attacks in a certain sequence (lead, off-hand, dual, etc)

    and Ritualist could summon spirits that not only gave buffs to the party but were half-decent tanks against NPC enemies

    Paragons introduced the shouts/chants/echos

    Dervish the multi-hit attack and the avatars

    I haven't gotten it yet :(

    apparently it's super popular in PvP

    so jealous

    it was amazing

    one of the most "wow" experiences of PAX for sure

    and the skills all seemed really cool

    I was actually pretty unimpressed with the elite skills they had available

    they were both "turn into some sort of weather and move around for fifteen seconds"

    which is COOL, but considering they're cutting down on the number of skills in the game, I hope there aren't many clones

    I don't know I guess the last MMO I played was WoW, and it was a LONG time ago even then but the mobility aspect of GW2 was really neat to me

    like even that elementalist flip-back skill was a departure from what I was used to

    what skills was that flip-back one?

    like a lot of people hear the 8-skill limit and go "what ewwww" but they don't really consider that the guild wars skills aren't at all like the ones you see in other MMORPGs

    The skill combo I came up with that I'm proudest of (not saying I'm the originator but I definitely hadn't seen anyone else use it) was

    Grasping Was Kuurong (ritualist elite spell, makes you hold an urn that does nothing until you drop it, at which point it knocks down all enemies in the area and they take damage)
    Destruction (ritualist summon spirit, does nothing for 20 seconds then explodes, dealing damage proportional to how long it lived)
    Swap (assassin spell, makes you switch places with targeted spirit)
    Rupture Soul (Ritualist spell, target spirit explodes, dealing damage and blinding nearby enemies)


    I'd put up the spirit of destruction, hold the ashes, run into an enemy group and Swap. You can't teleport while holding items, so it'd force me to drop the ashes, pinning enemies right next to where Destruction suddenly was. And then I'd blow it up

    the elementalist (I'm pretty sure it was the elementalist) had an ability that made him flip backwards like 15 feet, leaving a trail of fire that damages the opposition

    what's the unique attribute each class has?

    Strength, Expertise, Fast Casting, Energy Storage, Divine Favour, Soul Reaping...

    I can't remember the ones for the other four classes

    I think it was like 20 seconds. It would either immediately win a random arenas fight or fail horribly depending on my teammates

    I took a couple support spells in the other slots

    I don't know if it'll be possible to tell until the beta comes out

    they've said that it won't be as instanced, so that sounds interesting

    In the demo there were about twenty people taking on a big dragon but it wasn't clear if they were all supposed to be player controlled or if they were NPCs

    Okay, I went through the Hall of Monuments Calculator (linked in OP).

    Easiest titles to get are Eternal Hero/Protector of Tyria/Cantha/Elona... and by easy I mean it's actually feasible.

    That, and armor. Looks like I'll be trying to rush my characters through to get various bits of armor. I reckon my Necro and Ranger are overdue for some 15k goodness so they're next in line.

    Monument armor for my Neco and Ritualist and Assassin

    Asuran for my Ranger

    Gladiator for my Warrior

    Luxon for my Elementalist

    and my Monk won't get 15k armor because the only armor I like is what she's got

    Oh hey I didn't notice this thread until now. I love me some Guild Wars and still play every now and then! Mostly been working on raising my Kurzick faction and buying amber so I can get my Kurzick armor statue, and also doing the War in Kryta stuff to get an Oppressor weapon.

    Currently at 20 points for my hall! I'm determined to at least hit the 30 point mark.

    Feel free to add me to the list! I'm always up for Guild Warsing and helping people do things. "Morroc Lenotre" is my main


    e: oh shit, I totally forgot about the Halloween quests. I better get on that.

    Also, to people who have never Guild Wars'ed but want to after seeing this thread, you can actually get all three campaigns and the expansion for relatively cheap! Eye of the North is $8 on Amazon right now~ The Trilogy goes up and down, lowest I've seen it was around $25

    Guild Wars Trilogy: http://www.amazon.com/Guild-Wars-Trilogy-Pc/dp/B001DI6O6C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1287991444&sr=8-1

    Erics just posted links to said available prices too. :P

    This game is awesome fun, honestly. If I hadn't played 1000+ hours and been a little burnt out, I would still be giving it a good run through at the moment.

    Hell, I still periodically pick up my Ritualist to run through the Factions campaign I never finished.

    Fantastic
