Haven't played this game in several months now and I remember the starting areas were very populated. You would be running into other players all the time while doing events and heart quests. But I remember areas getting less and less populated as you got into the higher leveled areas and wandering around without seeing a player at all.
Is it still like that? Is there a certain area that is always more populated with higher leveled players? Are people just doing WvWvW stuff?
What exactly is in the next update? Sorry I haven't been following the game at all. You mention guilds...do I have to be in one to take advantage of whatever the next update is?
The next update is feb 26th. Should be the next chapter of the Living Story campaign and also they are releasing guild features. You will also be able to customize what your dailies are. Hit the link on your gw2 launcher to read about it.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 94
Queensdale = Shing Jea Monastery. Queensdale is where you go if you want your GW2 experience to be an avatar-based instant messenger (ABIM). ABIMs are stupid. I like human characters very much but I get out of Queensdale as quick as possible.
Oh, if you're new to GW Shing Jea Monastery was a starting area in GW1 where people went to chat all day. The degenerate kind of chat.
