    Alright, that's it!

    After vaguely following/trying to ignore this thread, I'm just going to have to prepurchase this game and get in on the upcoming beta weekend. A couple questions if you guys will indulge me...

    1. If I prepurchase in the next couple days I will indeed be included in this weekend's beta weekend, right? Or did I already miss the boat on that?

    2. Are all races and classes available? Level restrictions?

    3. I’m assuming beta characters will be wiped for release, but several recent games have been bucking that trend. So are these throwaway characters or permanent?

    4. What’s looking like the most and least popular classes so far? I know this is a bullshit, useless question people ask, but you can’t fight your own nature, am I right?

    5. How much fun am I going to have? A lot, right?

    1. Should be able to with no problem.

    2. Yes all races and classes. No level restrictions but the highest zone is new and will only have content to 35 or so. So you'd have to grind in all the lower areas or go to WuvWuv to get higher than that. A feat that would be hard to do in a weekend anyway.

    3. throwaway.

    4. It's actually pretty even. Whatever you play you'll see a lot of.

    5. All the fun will belong to you. ALL of it.

    Just to note: sylvari and asura races are not available.

    Does anyone have an idea of how large the client download is?

  • TolerantZeroTolerantZero Registered User regular
    Looking at the .dat file, I'm guessing approximately 13.4 gigs.

    That's not including the 1.5+ gig patch I'm downloading now.

    Is this a complete client redownload or something? Eyeballing it to 7-8 gigs.

    Look on the bright side! This means there'll be less to download later, when the full game comes out.

    Although now I'm starting to think 25 gigs was an underestimation of the entire game's size.

I got a code and applied it to my account, but it changed my username (was a certain 4 digit number before and now it's a different 4 digit number). I am curious as to whether or not it applied correctly and I will still have access to my character from BWE1.

    Hmm, that sounds like a pretty weird issue. Support goes through http://support.guildwars2.com/

    Thanks for the info, guys. Looking at the census chart, it DOES look pretty even class wise. I'm a little surprised engineer is the least played class. I thought a lot of people were excited about them.

    The complexity and perceived lack of turret power is probably turning people off. Plus the technological focus is not everyone's cup of tea.

    It's going to be my first alt though and still has a chance at becoming my main. I usually way over analyse class choice.

    There's a bigger patch out? I recently ran my launcher and it updated what I thought was a patch from stress test.

  • TolerantZeroTolerantZero Registered User regular
    Yeah, it must have been recent. I'm at 3.2 gigs right now.

    I think they put it through today. I'm at 3.8gb so far, so it is a pretty major update.

    Current GW2 folder is 14gb total.

    Thanks. The link on your website:

    Here's hoping I don't lose sound after 1-5 minutes forcing me to restart the client to get it back anymore.

    Guys, I know this was an issue last time but please leave WaM alone about tech support issues. I'm sure WaM loves us all and wants us all to have a great experience but she is here as a forum member first, not an arenanet dev. Please take support issues up the proper channels first. (Last time she answered a few tech support things, she got her box flooded on the forums, not so fun).

    Looking forward to the weekend. Almost done downloading the updates to the client.

    I tried. But their proper channel was broken. Fortunately, WaM was able to provide me with a correct link to their support channel.

    I'm just putting it out there as a general statement to hopefully stop Wam's box from getting flooded again.

    Yeah it is a thin little bar around the top edge of the health bubble. Clear, but small enough that it isn't taking up more space than necessary.

    That makes room over the right side of the skill bar for the boons, which now also show the duration. 8-)

    I'm going to assume that everyone in this thread had to download the client twice because the first time they selected "Run" instead of "Save."

    Please don't contradict this assumption.
