Since now all Beta Weekends are through, this guide shows you ways to handle the stress and anticipation towards the release of Guild Wars 2.
But so that the advice can be customised to your personal preferences a questionnaire-diagram hybrid was devised. This form was developed under the supervision of a team of asuran psychologists to approximate your Guild Wars 2 devotion but not yet tested on lower life-forms. If you feel disturbed by the depth of the questions asked it is suggested to pause the questionnaire and breath deeply while looking at pictures of cute puppies.
Using the values derived from the diagram, use the corresponding advice to easen the hard-ship of waiting.
1: Since you are rather liberal about which games you play. I suggest Runescape and Farmville as price-worthy alternatives.
2: You seem like someone new to the Guild Wars universe and look like you could need some guidance. For frequent and high-quality content, I unbiasedly suggest you enjoy the guides, news coverage and profession columns at guildwarsinsider.com. Click the link to go to that site. It’s a pretty good site.
3: When starving, I guess one will also eat rotten fruit. You have the bulk of the internet before you! And while I’m sure you have already seen everything worthwhile, there is still more Guild Wars 2 coverage than any single man can take in. Just be careful! Too much exposure to a lack of quality can cause uncontrolled drooling and may leave you staring blankly for hours.
4: It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Mr. Theorycraft and Dr. Tinfoil-Hat! I’m sure you’ll have a great time for the next couple of weeks. On a related note: Guild Wars 2 Guru is a highly reliable source of information!
5: Well, you’ve got the game client… Just in case you’re an expert in cryptology, go for cracking the game! While you’re at it, would you mind programming the much desired observation tool? For those not as talented, I suggest throwing a currency of your choice at the login screen.
With these tips I am sure the last long weeks before the long awaited release will go by practically unnoticed!
