GWOnline uploaded a few beta videos today (as well as update to their beta video playlist) that are sure to sate the thirst of you hungry Memsers. There is also a short video of random NPC banter, the music of World v World, and seated jumping! Not only have Tyrians evolved enough to learn how to jump, they’ve also mastered jumping while in a seated position. This most likely the result of genetic mutation via the splicing of frog DNA with their own. I blame the Engineers.
The first 2 videos are a 2 part series of structured PvP from the perspective of a Mesmer. The matches are roughly 20 minutes long and are on both the newest map and the familiar Kyhlo.
The Mesmer’s weapon of choice is the staff, which is a nice change from the usual greatsword (which is quite awesome to see a clothy use a monster sword). Not a lot of dodging, but it’s not a professional, and of course the game is still in beta. Also, beware of giant bear mauling.
Check out the full article for all the videos.
The Battle of Khylo map is where our second video takes place; Same set up but without the giant bear. Same lack of dodging, but overall a good watch if you want to see a staff Mesmer go at it in PvP. Both of these videos finish in under 15 minutes, showing the brief fast-paced nature of instanced PvP.
This last video is a jumble of assorted clips. The random NPC banter is quite humorous, as well as the seated jumping. The music is also quite fantastic sounding and is only a small taste of the overall soundtrack.
