Rosie chasing after a tennis ball has nothing on me chasing titles. Title hound? Me?? Nooooo....*stuffs lists and lists and more lists under the bed*
But there is a unique problem to chasing goals, you reach them. In Gw1, the vast amount of stuff to do was hemmed in by the amount of time required to get them. My best-est friend in the whole world set the Kurzick title as what she really really wanted to do in-game. A whopping 10 million faction. Yikes! It took her over a year to do. Not because she was lazy, but that was the amount of time it took a hard-working, life outside of game player to finish.
In Gw2, there are dozens of titles, but the PvE ones seem kinda bland maybe? I know I know, they took out the grind and for the most part that makes me want to dance a jig on a siamoth, but where does that leave players who finish the PvE stuff? Rolling alts I get. It is fun to go and learn and do via different methods. Dabbling in Wubs and sPvP wont appeal to everyone. So what does an alt-aholic do when all the titles are maxed, and the armor is purchased, and you are farting rainbows through epic proportions of Orrian dead??
I would say maxing out your crafting professions, but at the moment that is hardly a challenge. Seriously. I did that with only a gold to my name and got to almost level 300. That will change I am sure as prices and supply equalize.
How about getting all of the Legendary? Let me put it this way. Those are epically insane to get. At least right now. I can see getting one maybe two for Sia and letting the rest of my gals languish in not-so-cool hell. As much as I love doing stuffs, and rat-packing, that task is a bit daunting even for me...
Now I am most likely balking at nothing, being as I am such an old hand at GW2, I mean it has been a month released, surely I have seen everything there is to see right?? Nothing can surprise me at this point right? *sprinkle that last with salt peoples*
Well goals or no goals, I has a plan for the eventual boredom of the game: Grab some friends, hit the highway, and watch charr catapult cows. Yep. Anyone here good at algebra? I need the formula for a 425lb cow launched from a wooden catapult and the velocity of 15 FPS, adjusting for server load and capacity. *grin*
Where do you see yourself in-game in a year? Two years? 8 years?
Why being chased by cows, of course!
