PAX Approaches!

Earlier this week, I landed in the US to have a last break from work and study before I knuckle down to University in October. Part of my tour of the West coast will include a visit to Seattle and the Penny Arcade Expo in the last week of August. I’ve started arranging my timetable for the expo since the panel schedule went live today. Hopefully I’ll find some time to get my hands on the games being shown across the expo between all those talks! (Stoked for the Giant Bomb, Tested, Guild Wars 2 and Yogscast panels!)

Of course, one of the main reasons I’ve chosen to go to PAX is to play Guild Wars 2. What I haven’t decided yet are which races and professions I’d like to play most. So much choice is sometimes a bad thing, y’know!

Since ArenaNet announced all five races as playable in the Gamescom and PAX demos, I’ve been hit by an indecisiveness that just won’t budge. Naturally, I’d love to try all the combinations available, but that isn’t exactly an option available to any attendee. With PvP and a new Orrian undead section available, too, there are even more options to consider.

So, instead of plucking random combinations from a hat, I’d like you, my readers, to pick for me. Just leave a comment, twitter message or email telling me which race, profession and scenario (low/mid level PvE and/or PvP) you’d like to see and I’ll play/record the requests with the highest “votes”.

I’ll definitely write-up my experiences here on the blog, and include snapshots or video clips where I can. If I’m able to meet up with some fellow bloggers/guildmates attending the expo, I’ll try to record their playtime, too!

    So far I’ve had requests for:

    Asura engineer – PvP x2
    Asura warrior – PvE
    Charr necromancer – PvE
    Charr ranger – PvE
    Human ranger – PvE
    Norn warrior – PvP
    Norn thief – PvP
    Sylvari engineer – PvP x 2
    Sylvari elementalist – PvE
    Sylvari guardian – PvE x2
    Sylvari guardian – PvP

    Keep them coming, duders!

    I recommend playing the Thief in PvE, I found it extremely enjoyable. Be aware if you play human, norn or charr you’ll be put in the starter area automatically, so if you want a midlevel experience choose asura or sylvari. PvP its all the same.

    Sylvari Necromancer would be fun to see, thanks.
