Guild Wars 2 - My characters.

Guild Wars 2 has an amazing and immerse story but it can be played without entering any of that! The game just integrates very well all aspects of any gamer player style.

In this post I'll only focus on my characters build and story. Because I already have a document almost ready on Google Drive, I'll embed it here so I won't need to rearrange it for this article. Here is the direct access to the document.

For my first year playing the game go here.

Without further ado here goes:

Guild Wars 2 - My first year.

The earliest I have heard of Guild Wars 2 was during the Beta test weekend back in March 30, 2012. It was love at first sight!

The presented game had two fundamental characteristics that mean a lot to me: deliciously astonishing visuals, and freedom of play style.

Yes. There are plenty of games - especially MMOs - with those characteristics but none had, so far, the ability of really catching my eye and encompass almost fully my player style; history immersion and the possibility to play as I choose - or as my schedule allows.

(Here is a small sample of the games in which I entered and played just to see what they were about.)

Before that Beta test weekend I had never heard of the Guild Wars world. Since the game requires purchase with real money (after that playing is free of charge), I struggled with the decision of buying it until August, 2013; I now realize that that was a huge mistake! :)

In the meantime I entertained myself almost exclusively with a free-to-play MMO, that is also close to my heart: Ragnarok 2 (Here are my characters status so far.)

Ragnarok Online 2

Ragnarok Online 2 has become my second favourite MMORPG since early 2012 when I first heard of it (for the record and according to Wikipedia it was released in Korea in March 26, 2012). Was the first one which I played for the longest period of time. I made several attempts to bypass the country block put in place by AsiaSoft. Although it was possible I had no luck - the further I've been able to go was to character creation...

Ragnarok Online 2 Open Beta was released for North America and Europe by Gravity in April 2013. I have already watched game-play videos and wasted no time to jump in and give it a try. It was the first time I embarked on a levelling spree. Was very enjoyable although finding the right party for dungeons was very hard since my choice was to become a Beastmaster.
