2 years ago#1
Just opened the game for the first time, very excited, but I'm become suddenly nervous at the first decision of the game. World Selection.
I'm nervous because it says you cannot change Worlds, (unless you pay a fee) which scares me. I'd rather not make my first decision a very bad one, and select a world notoriously filled with jerks, or a too quiet/too busy world.
I'd generally like some help explaining this as well please, because it surprises me that they confine you to one world for your entire gaming experience, no chance to meet new players and interact with real world friends who may be on a different server/world.

Thanks in advance.

I'd like to know this too.
Do I have to be in the same world to play with other people I want to play with? Or can I just transfer for a little time whenever I want

You can guest on any server for all pve. Your world only really decides your wvwvw server.

Your world selection isn't really that permanent of a decision. You can "guest" on any server you wish to (which basically is the same thing as playing on it), only your WvW server is really determined by your home world.

That said, you can change your world at any time for a gem fee. Gems can be bought with real cash or ingame currency.

okay great! thanks for the help.
So i guess there isn't a world that you wouldn't recommend avoiding then?

Just a note, you can't guest on EU servers if you're on an NA server and vice-versa.

Some people don't seem to read the last line of my posts because they think it's a signature. No. THIS IS A SIGNATURE!
