I’m only just re-settling into life after vacation (woe is me, I know), but I’ve already spent another ten or so hours steeped inside of ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2. No, I’m nowhere near the cap, and yes I still can’t get into WvW unless I’m online for 2-3 hours, but I’ll be damned if I’m still not having plenty of fun with everything else the game has to offer. There may be folks who are less than impressed. We have a few of them here on our forums. I can appreciate their views even if I don’t share them. For my own value, GW2 has been the most fun I’ve had with a launched MMO since 2004. That’s a long time to wait for something that really grabs you, but I’m glad it has. You can read last week’s Review in Progress Part 2 if you’d like. And then let’s dive into some other aspects this week: crafting, the Trading Post, and the UI in general. Plus some other niggling complaints I might have.
