    So I tried playing some of this after not having played an MMO for like 4 years. I played EQ for a very long time then WoW for a pretty long time.

    First couple hours of this was... familiar. There were a couple neat things like just being able to do quests with anyone in the area and some of the abilities seemed interesting but nothing really drew me in yet. I know better not to judge by the early content in games like these, but is there a particular time people think it really starts to click?

    For the record I made a thief.

    Since there is no "healer" or "tank" class eventually knowing how your character works best is the key to victory in dungeons and pvp. When to move in and do some damage, when to fall back to recover or help your buddies up off the ground. Things like that. It is much more actiony than other MMOs. For instance, for most abilities, even if there is a cast or focus bar you can keep moving around (just not do the evade tumble, that'll break the casting)

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    Does that do anything other than make you show up on the map?

    So I’ll preface this by saying I LOVE the skimpy armor skins that scholars get.

    That said – the majority of the medium armor skins in the game are full on coats. There are some skimpyish options later in the game (T3 human racial is SICK, as is the armor skin in the thief trailer video) but nothing compared to what heavy and light get (light even at level 1).

    Heavy and light seem to get tons of skimpy options while sub 80 adventurers are stuck looking like nuns on the run. Heavy armor even has a fishnet look for one of the leggings. I mean c’mon if they can get plate fishnet can’t we get some leather strappy goodness? (think 5th element but leather )

    LOVE the game so far but would really like to see some more options for those trampy thief types out there!

    Thanks Anet!

    P.S. Should I be ashamed that the first suggestion post I’ve made in my 10+ years of MMO gaming is to ask for skimpier armor. My mamma would be proud!

    P.P.S. I would gladly PAY for combat enabled skins in the Gem store that gave us some more options

    It lets you make squads in WvWvW, if I remember it right, which makes grouping up into a zerg easier.

    showing up on the minimap is ridiculously important if you know how to prioritize WvW targets, because more often than not you're going to get a load of people both following you and listening to what you say.

    Maximus has actually gotten better in recent days; NICE yanked PTX into the summit guild and the level of co-op between guilds has increased immensely as a result. Knowing where the zerg is and what it's doing helps immensely and frees so many smaller teams up for other, equally important objectives.

    Patch notes for Oct. 7:
    General
    Fixed a bug in targeting that was causing left-dragging to deselect/select targets incorrectly.
    Fixed a bug in targeting that was allowing users to deselect all targets using the select next target functionality.
    Fixed a bug with human female sword and pistol animations.
    Fixed a bug that was causing quickness to get stuck on players and enemies indefinitely.
    Fixed the Mystic Forge recipe for Melandru’s Gaze that was rewarding the Mystic Staff instead.
    Fixed a potential bug with skill challenge conversations not closing for all parties speaking with the NPC.
    Fixed a bug in weaponsmith Destroyer recipes being swapped for Valkyrie and Berserker weapons.
    Fixed the Mystic Forge recipes for platinum and mithril ingot conversion taking cloth bolts instead of the appropriate ingots. This also fixes the issue with linen and silk bolt conversion recipes sometimes rewarding ingots.
    Fixed the Mystic Forge recipe for Immobulus requiring a defunct item. It now requires giant eyes instead.
    Fixed a bug with Rune of Divinity that was causing it to do 50% more critical damage than listed.
    Removed laughing audio from crafting stations in Divinity’s Reach.
    Raised the maximum karma limit.
    Superior Rune of the Adventurer is now set to give 50% of endurance on heal.
    The character select screen now reflects hidden armor choices.
    Updated Rune of Earth and Rune of the Grove to have a 25% chance to grant 4 seconds of protection and 30-second recharge for superior runes, with 45-second recharge for major runes.
    We’ve relaxed our anti-exploiting system for loot and events.

    Camera
    We’ve updated the camera to reduce the amount of camera smoothing currently in the game in order to lower the frequency of related bugs. We’re still looking into other camera issues, but we decided to make this quick change because it greatly improves the gameplay experience.

    Events
    Fixed a bug that could block “Escort Order of Whispers agents to Jormabakke Stead” in Snowden Drifts from restarting.
    Fixed a bug that could cause duplicate versions of Agent Briathell to spawn in Snowden Drifts.
    Fixed a bug that could prevent the repair event for “Cascade Bridge” in Lornar’s Pass from triggering.

    Dungeons

    Caudecus’s Manor
    Closed map exploits.
    Updated the reward vendor for Caudecus’s Manor to include the missing exotic light helmet.

    Citadel of Flame
    Closed map exploits.

    Twilight Arbor
    Upper Spider Path: Increased the attack range of the Nightmare Tree. The area attack and its effect now take place at the same location.
    Nightmare Tree Spider Path: The area attack now correctly does damage at the point of the effect.
    Forward Upper Husk Path: Added damage to the Nightmare Tree’s immobilize skill. Also added damage to the Nightmare Tree egg launch skill.

    Story
    Reduced the health of the final boss in “The Source of Orr.”
    Forging the Pact: Implemented changes to ensure that the cave section completes reliably.
    Pets and Walls Make Stronger Kraals: Fix for possible stall during the taming step.

    Battle of Fort Trinity:
    You cannot pick up the water orb until you defeat all of the saboteurs.
    It’s no longer possible to trap players by closing the fortress doors on them.
    Fixed a stall during “Retake the docks” objective.
    Fixed a stall if players did not choose a greatest fear earlier in Chapter 7.

    Lines of Communication: Batanga will now help you fight the Arcane Eye.
    Fixing Blame: Warmaster Gurnn should now kick off his cutscene correctly.
    Fixed a rare bug in “Shards of Orr” where Herboza would not become visible.

    World versus World
    The northernmost keep in all homelands has had its collision adjusted on the inner western gate.
    Numerous items have been disabled for use in World versus World to prevent exploits and imbalances. This includes the Experimental Teleportation Gun, ettin gunk, drake eggs, seed turrets, and more.
    Fixed WvW Orb of Power duplication on player disconnect.

    Profession
    Attributes gained from traits now apply to the downed state.

    Elementalist

    Signets of Earth, Fire, and Water: These signest have been updated to not fire at targets behind the player.
    Signet of Fire: This skill is now able to hit targets at its indicated range.
    Signet of Air: This skill now displays a hovering signet effect over the user when activated.
    Whirlpool: This skill’s damage has been decreased by 33%.

    Engineer
    Grenade Kit: Grenade skills now have the same cast time underwater as they do on land.
    Explosives Trait Grenadier: This trait now gives a bonus to underwater grenade skills.
    Big Ol’ Bomb: This skill has been updated to be a blast finisher.

    Guardian
    We are moving towards retaliation being more of a counter to taking many hits rather than a general boon to keep up all the time. We also wanted to improve the combo finisher of the guardian, so we reorganized guardian greatsword skills to the following:
    Skill 2: Whirling Wrath (10 second recharge)
    Skill 3: Leap of Faith (15 second recharge)
    Skill 4: Symbol of Wrath (20 second recharge)
    Updated Bane Signet and Signet of Wrath so they can’t be fired at targets behind the player.
    Updated Signet of Judgment to apply three seconds of retaliation upon activation with or without traits.
    Decreased the activation time of Signet of Judgment.

    Mesmer

    Phantasmal Duelist: Increased recharge to 20 seconds.
    Phantasmal Swordsman: Increased recharge to 18 seconds.

    Necromancer
    Updated Chillblains to properly function with the Greater Marks trait.
    Signet of Spite can now be cast while on the move.

    Ranger
    Crossfire: Increased casting time by 40 milliseconds. This was done to fix some glitches in the animation that caused problems with this skill.
    Removed the broken audio that played with Natural Healing whenever pets were in combat.

    Thief
    Pistol Whip: Reduced damage by 15%.
    Basilisk Venom: Increased stun duration to 1.5 seconds. Stun breakers now work on this skill.

    Someone in shrub chat earlier tonight thought the thief changes were buffs. They also typed "suck a dick arena net" in all caps spaced across multiple lines and repeatedly told Zoel he's shit at video games or something. I don't know who they are on the forums, but they seemed real upset. Or maybe they were joking. Hard to tell.
