Guild Wars 2 Beta Mac Client announces a beta version of the OS X client for Guild Wars 2 is now available, allowing Mac owners to play ArenaNet's MMORPG sequel, with one purchase entitling players to play on both systems. Word is:

The Mac Beta is available to anyone who has purchased or purchases Guild Wars 2. All you need is an active Guild Wars 2 account to download the Mac Beta client. Just log in to and click Download Client to get started. If you have any questions, check out our Mac FAQ.

Keep in mind as you play the Mac Beta that it is a beta product. Performance and system requirements arenít finalized. Review the beta hardware specification, and understand that your overall experience will be better when we release the final version. Even though itís a beta, the Mac client does connect to the same live environment that the PC client connects to.
To bring Guild Wars 2 to the Mac, ArenaNet worked with our partners at TransGaming, whose Cider technology allows us to mirror the game experience as closely as possible between the PC and Mac. This means that future updates to Guild Wars 2 will be available for both platforms simultaneously.

In PvP, a Thief is awesome. In PvE... not so much.

I actually submitted a bug report on the personal story quests. It was titled "NOT EVERYONE PLAYS A FRAKKING WARRIOR!!! HELLO??!!"
I'm not sure it'll get much attention, but it felt good typing it.

I'm leveling a Warrior and a Guardian basically side by side, and it's just completely insane how much more survivability they have. The Guardian STARTS with regeneration! It's just always on! The Warrior can get the signet for it at level 5. You know when the Thief gets the opportunity for regeneration? Oh that's right, NEVER!


I had an issue with one story mission as my ranger, involves a large group of undead attacking you and some pirate npc's. The pirates lasted all of 3 seconds so I was swarmed. I can usually handle most PvE situations but a 10 on 1 zombie gang rape was a bit much, took a couple tries to complete it. All the other missions were easy as pie so combined with your experience it sounds like some balance work is definitely needed.

Yeah I did that mission too. I was lucky, because the pirates and undead zerged away from the beach, so once the pirates had all died and the next wave of undead came in, the undead were standing on the beach while I was ressing the pirates 100 feet away.

All the missions get like that. "Oh, hai, you're alone! Here, deal with a dozen destroyers all at once! HAR HAR HAR Oh you're dead. Oh well!"

Just the fucking burning AoE from a dozen destroyers kills you in about half a second flat. They haven't even ATTACKED you at that point yet...
