Still at it

I am still enjoying this huge world in Guild Wars 2.  I have 33% of the world map completed.  Look and you can see Olfr’s armor steadly getting better looking as I adventure around and level him up.  I’ve gone with silver armor with gold trim since the beginning to try to keep it realistic looking.  It kind of looks like the armor for the King’s Guard from Game of Thrones.  Hail Joffrey!

Underwater adventures

I have to say the underwater areas in Guild Wars 2 are pretty awesome.  So what if my chainmail clad viking would sink like a rock to the bottom if this was realistic at all.  The graphics look great underwater with alternating sun rays and bubbles and sharks and frogmen swimming around.  I realized one thing that I am really enjoying over Everquest 2.  It’s being able to move mobs around during combat.  Not just training them backwards either.  In GW2 I can kick mobs back, I can rifle butt them back, I can do a fearsome warrior shout that sends them running, or my favorite I can do a huge stomp that sends them all flying.  Basically the combat is a blast.  Olfr is level 36 now and I’ve been playing with a couple co-workers.  One is a Norn Ranger aka Beastlord which I approve.  The other is a human Necromancer.  Olfr Smash !!
