trjp: A few suggestions
1. Consider moving to a new server. The one you are on may be a low-pop one
2. You can automatically deposit all crafting items (well, except for a few unique ones you get early on). Do that regularly
3. Carry a few salvage kits to salvage anything called "Salvage item" or anything you don't intend to sell (early on, probably nothing. By the end, most everything :p)
4. Whenever you see a merchant, go and sell junk. That will auto-sell all the junk
5. Anything left over after auto-selling and depositing is equipment or a quest item. Destroy quest items you don't need and either use, sell, or salvage equipmentSteam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Then I looked up a crafting levelling guide, realised what a huge grind it would be to do it optimally, thought fuck it and just crafted what I wanted to use. This is how I feel playing GW2, but if you are the sort of person that is compelled to complete every achievement, tick every box, there might just be way too much of it.

Well, that's the end of Spec Ops: The Line.
Now I'm confused.

Finished BioShock Infinite 1999 mode, also the third time I've finished the game.
Holy crap it's good.
Guess I'll return to The Secret World... also there's a new 1.7 patch for Percursors I want to dig into. And maybe I should finally beat Pathologic? Choices.

Thanks for the GW2 tips but the game just isn't for me - I've poured 1000s of hours into WoW, I love the game - this is a shadow of it.
It's packed-to-the-ceiling with bullshit. My time in WoW really tailed-off when achievements appeared there but here there are times when I feels everything is tailored around them!
GW2 has other issues too - stupid shit like areas which respawn so fast you go from fighting 1 guy to the next to the next and the first 2 reappear and leap in and so on.
You also move like a snail with piles - I'm tired of lumbering around at about 2mph - I'm tired of slopes which my gran could climb but my character can't and so on.
Oh and Sonic Periscopes - whoever put those in I hope gets cancer of the arsehole - seriously, fuck them and their entire families...
"Here's an idea - a turret with massive range and a knockback - that will be brilliant"
p.s. In about 8 hours there was one moment which made me smile - the Norns singing "Splish Splash, 4 norns in a bath" - otherwise it's a fucking grim game ram-packed with earnest and tiresome characters - it's like a really bad SyFy series, it's almost unwatchable.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge. Bretty good! Playing solo, with the elf girl. It's like Gears of War with bows. The visuals swing between hilarious heavy metal fantasy and Witcher-esque atmosphere.
I'm in a village straight out of the first Witcher right now and I'm surprised an American dev can pull off something like this. American fantasy always has a fake Disneyland feel whereas you could tell me this is made in Poland and I'd believe you. It lacks polish anyway.
It also features the darkest dungeons outside of the Souls series.
I enjoy the main characters. They're not particularly funny or clever, they just feel a bit more real than most.
Let me put it this way: it's infinitely better than LOTR: War in the North, but it's not as good as The First Templar. I know Brian Fargo isn't pleased with it but I'm charmed by its fantasy B-movie style and the gameplay is enjoyable enough. A good bargain bin purchase. If I'm not mistaken our good friend Althea also liked it.

I agree, Hunted was better than I expected. It's not, uh, a particularly good game, but not many games do the fantasy action thing. And War in the North is putrid, unfortunately.
Precursors patch: Fan made. Here's the link. http://www.patches-scrolls.com/precursors.php#tp17
Here's how you get Precursors running:
Download the Fan Improvement pack through the Beamdog client (should include the game files, make sure it's around 8gigs)
Download patch 1.7 (above), and install it.

@trjp: Try playing an asura guardian. Serious suggestion.

I made a half-assed arena somewhere in Dwarf Fortress. I had the dwarves to drag Troglodytes and other unsellable oddities by the hair to stuff them in a single cage before releasing them, running wild. Sent in the guards instead of my main melee squad and they got shredded in seconds, so I had to send in the big guys to diffuse the situation. Oops.Art blog here.
Stuffed with pokemon doodles. And arse. Enter at your own risk.

As for overflow servers, I haven't been struck by that unfortunate phenomenon (yet). It really seems like a wrongheaded idea for an MMO, just like culling (when that was finally explained to me I was like WTF).
As for stuff requiring a group, I find that a lot can just be achieved with judicious use of kiting. Never got to do any kiting on my WoW warrior, but I sure as shit do on my GW2 warrior.
As for all the crafting "crap", you can deposit that straight to your bank from anywhere, as long as you don't have a massive amount of whatever it is. That helps A LOT with the clutter.

SPOILERS for Baldur's Gate 2
Doing personal quest for Keldorn. The lawful good Paladin. Paragon of virtue, Justice embodied. Actually he is not better than punks which litter streets. Holy shit, I haven't been pissed at a npc in a game in a long time. That bastard is never home, his kid doesnt like him, his wife is broken from years of neglect. Of course she found another man. Apparently a fine, good man. What our Paladin does? Abuse his power and thrusts his wife into prison for life and hangs the lover from a rope. Two innocent lives destroyed, a child will grow up without father and mother. Just out of spite.
Now this kind of behaviour irritates me greatly. I invested too much into him so for now he stays in my group. He is my main tank (took over that role from Minsc) and heaviest melee fighter. Can not survive without his sword and his paladin powers.
Yet at the end of the game I am gonna leave him somewhere in different plane. with crappy dagger and no armour. So he can suffer for he is one of the most evil characters in the game. A dragon who burns town is much better than him as the dragon knows that he is evil. Keldorn dares to believe he is good.

He takes the "lawful" part of his alignment seriously. One of the better characters in the game, I think.

Destroying every team in my path. The Stanley Cup will be within my grasp soon. It's inevitable.

The main conflict of every paladin is the question of whether to be lawful or to be good because you often cannot have both. I believe Keldorn's personal quest does that rather well."Reason is the madness of the strongest"
