Catching up with some interesting stuff we missed last week before E3 goes completely gonzoid, Adam noted that Arenanet have released more info on Guild Wars 2. In a continuation of what they’ve been doing before, it explores one system and dissects one character class. The system is the Traits, which are advantage-style bonuses you can add to your character’s skills to supplement your build. Read here. Secondly, they reveal the genre-staple of the warrior. Ah, hitting. Will we ever be bored of the hitting? Lots of details on their core mechanics and various uses of weapon types – from hammers to rifles – and a whole load of new videos showing off some attacks. WHICH FOLLOW!
Stomping your big stompy stomp-foot! (aka Floor hitting)
My favourite kind of hitting is pub-hitting for drinks, but doesn’t seem to be an option yet.
Yeah, despite the somewhat questionable character combat-barks, I’m actually impressed at how excited Guild Wars 2 – trad fantasy and all – is making me.
