3.0 out of 5 stars An Introduction, 28 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Guild Wars 2 Signature Series Guide (Paperback)
I guess individual receptions to this guide are informed by expectations.
I was hoping for something encyclopaedic; but, ultimately, for the level 80s, this guide isn't much more than a very pretty trip down memory lane.
Sure, everything you need is freely available online, but wouldn't it be nice to have it all together in a handy guide next to your keyboard (or bed!)?
I would have loved a comprehensive guide to finding every Ranger pet, and a walkthrough of the vistas and jumping puzzles, and a few pages on recipes and crafting at the mystic forge, and a guide to crafting every legendary, and a little bit on dragons and spawn rates and some info on the champions and maybe even some suggested strategies, and details of karma merchants and their gear and gear stats - but none of this stuff is covered.
Maybe the nature of a world which is subject to inexorable balancing and evolution precludes the possibility of a 'finished' guide?

Provided you are not expecting anything other than a gorgeous and perfunctory introduction to this amazing world, and you don't mind the thin pages, this is a wonderful buy.
