Blood of the Master

Although, I'd recomend doing the skill quests.... (Try this site for quest help)

If anyone needs help from a ranger who's finished the game with green weaponry and the best armour in the game, add Varlo Marine , then if i'm on i'll be glad to help you.

Lots.  I don't know when you quit, but since the game began we've had two new, big PvE areas added (Grenth's Footprint/Sorrow's Furnace and the new Tombs of the Primeval Kings) plus a whole bunch of funky new items.

I got to about Yak's Bend with a W/Mo and it just became repetitive. I'm beginning to believe that it's more like a D2 copy than what it was suppose to be.

The first half of the game isn't all that enjoyable; it's when you get to the jungle, then the desert, that things become interesting.  Especially when you toss in the elite skills...

Yeah, but since my friends stopped playing, I really have no desire to go past Yak's Bend. Even with a full set of henchies it is painful to get through there.

I was looking into getting this (yes, I know I'm a year late).

Is there going to be another price drop soon?

Or should I just not bother with the original at all, and just get factions when it comes out?

Unlikely.  Price has metastasised at £17.99 in the UK and around $30 in the US.

Nothing's stopping you just getting Factions, and you can always buy the original later and add it to your account if you want the extra content.  I think it's going to be better value buying GW and then Factions, as you probably won't want to play the large amount of low-end content in GW after doing the high-end stuff in GW:F.  OTOH, if you buy Factions first you'll have access to all eight professions instead of just six.  Swings and roundabouts, do as you will.

Get the original first, then get Factions later this month/year. You really should do the low end before the high end stuff.

Factions does have its low end stuff.  However, it's designed to ramp you up to level 20 quite quickly (which is why the quests now showing up in LA have such big XP rewards - so people can cross over more readily).

Sorry, I don't know US sellers so I can't run a search.  I've just heard that it's selling at that price.  

One word of advice, though - don't buy a used copy.  It's worthless as the key can only be used once, and even if by chance you get the account passcode you'll be banned for violation of the EULA if caught.

Sorry; it's a habit I've acquired on busier boards where the chances of someone posting while you're composing are much greater.  I don't want to lose the habit either, so as not to get screwed up on those boards, but I'll strive to keep it to the absolute minimum needed for context.

If anyone who is new to the game needs some help, I'm more than willing... :D

<grins evilly>

If you've only just got a lvl15 E/Mo to LA, you're new to the game.

I have lvl20 toons at all stages of the game, and I also have a bunch of junk I don't need.  Add Sergeant Angua to your friends list, and whisper me some time.  Help and slightly janky items will be supplied.

Good for you - a lot of people get stuck on Elona because they have no clue.

Dunes of Despair is trivially easy.  Just do it with henchmen.  Ignore the Siege Wurms, stay close to the Hero and keep an eye out - no worries.

Thirsty River can be tough if you don't know what you're doing, but with a semi-decent party it's not too hard.  The trick is to time your runs, and to kill the bosses in the right order.  

In the second area (the one with two bosses), run straight ahead at the start - nobody go right or aggro any packs there.  Kill the pack outside, then go into the Temple and take out the Priest.  Once he's dead the rest of the pack won't respawn, so get everyone inside the temple and kill the bad guys.  Then head outside and wait for a time 15 seconds before a two-minute breakpoint (1:45, 3:45 etc).  Timed right, you won't kill an enemy before the clock rolls over the breakpoint and so you'll have two full minutes to wipe out the guards and the Priest.

The last area has three bosses, which is tougher but oddly also easier.  As soon as you start, turn right and run the entire party straight into the first Temple - ignore the guards.  Kill the Priest, then hole up in the Temple killing things.  After that it's the same as before - wait for 2x+1:45, then charge into the Temple and kill the Priest.

The last boss is tricker, because he's a Monk boss.  Kill the party of guards outside, then head into the Temple.  This time, though, you want to have some of the party attack the boss instead of all piling on the Priest.  You do this to make the boss heal himself instead of the Priest, making it easier to kill the Priest.  Once the Priest is dead, kill the boss.

Also, if you're a Ranger, Warrior or a Monk you should bring a Signet of Capture on this mission.  The Mesmer and Necro elites are naff and the Ele elite has been nerfed, but Word of Healing is the single best healing spell in the game and the Warrior and Ranger elites are both excellent energy management skills.

I bought Guild Wars when it first came out (preordered, too!). We got two copies so that the man and I could play together. That lasted about a week then we both got crazy bored of it. Maybe I didn't really give it a chance, I don't know. I just really didn't like it at all.

Thankyou, although i found out what the problem was. Although all my virus and antispyware etc was all configured for GW, when Zone Alarm updated it set its internet security to the highest level, so my computer was in "stealh mode". I had to drop it back down to medium so that my computer could be seen. YAY GW!
