No, but i am getting it for myself soon enough.

It looks very interesting, and my freind plays it nonstop.

Guild Wars, the first one, is excellent for about two months, depending on how into PvP you are.

Factions is more PvP oriented, but it's also just an all around good add-on.

Nightfall I hear is superb as well, adding more for the PvE side of things. Plan on picking it up soon.

I play GW: Prophecies (the first one) and still enjoy it, mostly.

Also, this thread probably belongs in the Video Games section.

I've just picked it up and really like it. I'm not into PvP that much so I play it like a regular RPG, like Diablo.

I picked up Prphecies for a tenner and am still only about a quarter of the way through, so it gets a big thumbs up from me :twisted:

i just installed GW Nightfall.

I didnt have any problems until i had to name my character.

The "this name doesnt require more than one words" or w/e thing wont turn to a green checkmark, and i cant hit create.

I have all three of the Guild Wars game as does my son. We play them together and are working to finish Factions together so we can both get started on nightfall.

I want to get nightfall but when I got factions it sort of took over my life and got addictive and during exam time thats not good.

I just picked up Nightfall and so far it's pretty good. If anyone wants to look me up in game, my Dervish is Somerset Lopez.

Likewise, in Prophesies, I usually play as Antioch Kinstar.

Since I just got Nightfall, expect me to be playing quite a lot. I go by EST, so you'll find me on between 3pm and 2am most days.

I used to play often but for some reason I stopped. This was before any of the expansions came out. I left around level 18 and 1/2 and was a Warrior/Ranger, whos pet somehow disappeared and I didn't ever figure out how to get it back.

Anyway, I was thinking about getting one or a few of the expansions soon so that I can hopefully getback into the game. If anyone has any of them and would like to sort of sum them up or give your personal opinion of them that would be great.

I haven't played a lot of Factions, but from what I've heard it's good, but not great. It's heavily shifted towards the PvP side of things, introducing Alliance battles vying for physical game territory. The outcomes of the AvA battles between the two factions (the Luxons and the Kurzicks) effect the game map. Pretty cool.

Nightfall, so far, is really damn good. The advent of the hero system is certainly a perk. They're essentially henchmen that you can equip their items and skills and change their attributes and such. You can order them around as well. Very, very good for soloing. On the otherside of things, the campaign is incredibly long, weighing in at 20 new missions over a game map that rivals the size of Prophecies. Almost. As well, the it's got an insane level of difficulty at times. Certainly welcomed.

They've also been doing a lot of tweaking of stuff and prettying up the interface and just changing stuff for the better. It's a completely different game than I used to play a year ago.


If anyone's interested, I started a guild with this guy a couple days ago. We're looking for a bunch of people and plan on doing a lot of GvG and eventually take on the Hall of Heroes.

Catch me in game if you're interested in the guild or just want to go kill shit.

Antioch Kinstar (R/Mo20) beat the Prophecies campaign and has 70% of the map explored, so if you need a run anywhere, I can do it. Hell, I've even ran Drok's successfully a couple times.

Somerset Lopez (D/E 10) is my current Nightfall character. He just runs up and does area damage. Excellent at crowd control, terrible at bosses.

Ya, I think I might have to pick up Nightfall. It sounds good and even the other expansions sound good too. I will check them out and if I get them it will probably be tomorrow since I gotta go out anyway. I am up for anytime, even tomorrow night if you guys want.

I think my old character's name was Master Mercenary, but if I got Nightfall I would probably make a new character anyway. I will keep in touch with you two in this topic and let you know if I am getting Nightfall and/or the other expansions. I think I am though.

Alright, well I got Nightfall today so i have the original and Nightfall. I started a new dervish character named Giran Nola and he is level 3 in the Nightfall campaign. I decided to take a little break but anyway, I hope we all can play together. I won't be playing a ton though, just when I can.

Sick deal. My D/E is level 15, almost 16, and is on the last Istani mission.

Kourna, here I come. Eventually I'll get him over to Tyria and my Ranger over into Elona.
