    Exclamation GWOnline was in the Press Beta, ask your questions here!

    So for those of you who may have missed it, GWOnline.net was in the Guild Wars 2 press beta this last weekend. After the embargo lifts later today we will start flooding you with articles and gameplay footage, it will take all week to get everything published!

    Meanwhile, we are also doing a Q&A session with you our community, and this is it!

    You can start asking your questions already now, and we will do our best to answer after the embargo lifts. At the end of the week we will make an article out of some of the questions and answers in this thread, so here is your chance at GWO main page fame!

    [EDIT] Some things we are not allowed to talk about, so some questions will alas be left unanswered. Such questions will be answered with "No comment" so you know it is no use nagging about it.

    Oh, and the people who were on our beta team this time, and thus are allowed to answer questions without breaking NDA are:
    CMEPTb, Gorani, Lady Rhonwyn, teina, Fae, satomz, Thalanor Thornhale, Alaris, Rushster and myself.

    InbeforeAlaris... Racial skills?

    Anything on crafting? I'm not really interested in it, but I realized yesterday I know nothing about it.

    As GW1 players, what are your thoughts on all that crap we heard about combat being boring?

    I will answer that one right away: Rhonwyn an me tinkered around with that. We made videos on the actual crafting and experimenting for recipes and will write about that in our blogs for the main page.
    I think we both gave it a "thumbs up", despite the small problems that surfaced.

    Racial skills?
    The Norn had summons, which I did not unlock in PVE - I had my own Elementalist summon which I liked and documented in an upcoming video too.

    That will be something worth discussing! CM has written about the subject for a blog. There is light & shadow, but I don't want to go into detail just yet.

    Absolutely!

    Edit:

    Oh, what Lensor forgot to mention, there are things we're sadly not allowed to talk about. Please don't shoot the messenger!

    I'm thinking of making a Wizard with Magic Missile and Arcane Torrent, do you think I should pick the 15% arcane damage rune which would also benefit Magic Missile, or just go for 175% damage on Torrent?

    ..oh, you meant gw2 questions, right.


    What changed from last beta to now?

    What things aren't you allowed to talk about?

    You can talk about not talking about them right??

    On the off-chance that that well put question goes unanswered - Did you meet 'Wikka' at the upper asuran gate in Divinity's Reach?

    We can't talk about things that were still very much under development. Sadly, that includes the in-game store.


    But for the rest, ask away!

    No new racial skill we haven't heard of afaik, but I only tried Charr ones. By the time I realized I could try other races' racial skills, it was too late to do it.

    Actually, I didn't get the list of stuff I am not allowed to talk about. Please send that over asap.

    Racial skills? Oh well, I only found out about those traits about an hour before I logged off

    I think I won't do that, or you'll be hammered with PM's!

    No, I mean, I was in the press beta, and I need to know what I'm not supposed to talk about otherwise I might say something that's under NDA.

    I'm not really worried though, as what I'll be saying I assume is safe.
