So I have this story to tell and figured I'd share it here.
I was working on the Goemm's Lab Puzzle Achievement, which is pretty tedious. I was on the Chilly section of the puzzle and noticed a dead character waiting to be resurrected. Started to resurrect him as another player hopped up behind me. The player on the ground says "Wait!" right as I start to resurrect, and all of a sudden I get blasted by a chunk of ice. I noticed the Ice Elemental elite up on the platform ahead and jump my way over to kill it.
I did all these crazy jumps and had a dodge that almost sent me off the edge, and the player that was behind me resurrected the guy on the ground and we're all about to kill it, then all of a sudden I'm flying off the platform. Turns out the monster had a knock back. I felt SO cool managing all that, then it didn't matter anyway. Ha ha!
I've been having such a blast with this game. My Elementalist is level 25. I've been going through all of the starter areas and only have the Charr area left. Then I'll move onto the level 15 zones.
I also played around with the Black Lion Trading Company, which is the cash shop. It turns out you can trade gold (in-game currency) for the diamonds (what real money becomes) or vice-versa, which I thought was pretty cool. I spent the $50 for the 4000 diamonds and spent the majority of it expanding the amount of bags I could carry (think WoW bags). The most of my diamonds went towards dyes and to turn my Asura into a little pirate.
I don't normally spend $$ in cash shops. But I decided to spend as much as I would have to purchase the game. Since I received my copy as a gift.
I finally finished all of the starter zones the other day and started working on the level 15-25 level zones. After doing the starting zones along with some crafting I'm currently level 32! I also found a few more dye, including Brick, which is an incredibly pretty red. My character's starting to look pretty awesome as well.
Thinking about trying out the level 30 dungeon. Maybe tomorrow, though.
I am slowly getting around to pve and exploring the world, but I just can't stop WvW. I am just having too much fun in there. I made a Char engineer, who is currently lvl 12 I think, on northern shimmerpeaks.
As for a picture, my guy looks pretty boring at the moment lol. He's just covered in brown leather.
I haven't tried WvW yet, I've mostly been questing and gathering all of the Point of Interests and Vistas, as well as the jumping puzzles in each zone. I'm going to try out the level 30 Catacombs dungeon tonight, I think. If I can find a group for it.
Looks really cool! I'm jealous of the black dye. I manage to find some white dye, though. That was a pretty awesome moment. I kind of feel like the guy from Assassins Creed running around in this outfit, haha.
I started up a Thief and like it so far. I've been trying out the different weapons they can use and so far my favorite is the double pistols!
