Well looks who’s back playing some GW2. My self imposed absence for more than two years finally ended this past week. Thanks to the beta weekend event, i was able to get my hands on the Revenant for the first time, which i really enjoyed. So much so that it persuaded me to actually purchase the expansion which drops in about a month or so. I’m currently on hiatus from WoW so it was perfect timing. I craved an MMO to play and there it was staring at me, calling out my name.
I’d be lying if i said i hadn’t missed certain aspects of the game these years away. To this day i still believe GW2 has the best leveling experience of any MMO i’ve played. The game world didn’t let me down when i logged in again. Perhaps it was due to being on a high population server but there were so many people out and about. I absolutely love how active the game seems thanks to all the events going on in every map. Even the low level zones were pretty active when i ran through them. Your experience may vary of course.
Unfortunately it was also a sad day as i decided to put my Thief and his unicorn bow in semi-retirement for a while. I’m not sure what possessed me to level one and make it my main in the first place. I’ve always been a fan of plate wearing classes in every MMO in the past. I’m definitely not sure what convinced me to farm my butt off for that legendary bow either. Well, that’s not true. I mean look at that mystical steed and try not to be amazed or giddy. Sure it’s ridiculous and over the top but that’s what makes it so amazing. For now, i’m setting my sights on Revenant. Stay gold ponyboy.
