18 – Builds and Forges and Trinities Oh My!

Say hello to our special guest Shokenaw, who expects to keep exploring and finding beautiful things in the world. Zach will keep doing whatever he feels like, Vayne loves finding references to GW1 and recovering captured waypoints, Nick just wants to do dungeons, and Travis can’t figure out whether to play an alt or stick with his ranger. Also: tips on building your character traits, the mystic forge is slightly predictable, and a heated discussion of *gasp* the trinity! (or lack thereof). Shokenaw’s Blog

Guild Wars 2 wins stuff, beta client isn’t really a beta client, ArenaNet proves they rule at biking, Colin puts some rumors to bed but lets them stay up all night, GW2 purcahses are region locks, Travis has some fun with sound effects – annoys audience, Dances, and jumping puzzles. Hey Stephen, the video you asked about with Colin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzDti9XxHFs Justin’s tool that analysis the Guild Wars 2 market and lets you know what makes the most sense to craft: http://giygas.justinvanderheide.com/

ArenaNet gives us a glimpse of the servers going live, times you can expect to get in-game during launch, deep Mesmer and Necro discussions regarding “pets”, the economy of Guild Wars 2 along with learning curves, steam rolling dungeons for armor, mounts??  Hm.

14 – Travis Smart. Races Easy.

Another stress test, of course more jumping puzzle discussion, we make up a new race (when I say we I mean Vayne), why can’t we find a profession and stick with it?  Questions with listeners!
