While after needing some down time from League of Legends I have gone back to Guild Wars 2 and in doing so I have found myself a new Guild, which has been really good as they are really friendly and active. They are constantly offering to help you and wanting to do things together which for me is what makes the game. While doing some guild missions with them I noticed a shortage of Elementalist’s (Ellie) so I thought as I was spending time to level a Warrior that had already started a few months ago I would take a break and try the ranged class so that I could give the guild some utility.
Although I have to admit other Characters I have leveled e.g. Guardian I abused the Tome of Knowledge when they were running the event where they destroyed Lions Arch. I hadn’t really concentrated on leveling and would go around doing dailies and random things to level. Now this time around I want to rush to 80 but I also want to get most if not all the way points and to my horror it is possible to do that but the way the dailies now work makes them harder to someone who is leveling in my opinion. Before the dailies were something that for the most part you could pick up anywhere so where ever you were you could do them now not so much. You need to go to certain areas and do certain things which I can see the point. It mean’s you can’t just farm lower level areas to get your dailies done anymore and also for newer players it makes them move to other areas more often, so it does make a lot of sense, however this change to me has hampered the players that are leveling alts. I know it’s a bit of a rant but that’s my findings.
As for the class the Ellie I have been really enjoying it to be honest, I have been trying out the different play styles i.e. the different weapon sets and so far for leveling a think that the Scepter and Dagger are the way to go but can see me settling on a Staff. The Ellie is one of the classes that can’t have two weapons sets so you have to keep swapping them out before the fight. It will be interesting to see how this character develops for me and where I am going to use it because WvW are always low on them too on my server so you could see me there.
I also have no doubt there will be more content based around this character. If you have any tips for the Ellie feel free to let me know in a comment down below.
