The Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Checklist

And so the great wait begins… Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend will start at 3am Saturday, GMT+8 time. As usual, we will be camping to jump right into the game the moment it goes live. Not a single minute wasted! We only have 36 hours to try out everything!

We here at Yakisoba have prepared a simple to do list for the beta!

1. Stock up

Head to your nearest supermarket and stock up on food and drinks! Best to get food that won’t dirty your fingers while you game. Snackbars, chocolate bars, wang wang, etc are the best. Get your drinks in 1.5ml bottles, cheaper and you don’t have to keep refilling!

2. Sleep

Go sleep. Catch at least 5 hours sleep, so sleep at 10pm! It’s going to be difficult, but that extra pre-gaming sleep will serve you well in the marathon!

3. Get Mumble

Details on how to get Mumble can be found here. Tsubaki will be on Mumble at 2.45am, together with all the other members who will be doing the marathon. As soon as the Guild get created (which we can make immediately after your first cutscene), we can start adding you into the guild. Chatting and partying up together will make your Guild Wars 2 experience a very enjoyable one, and you probably won’t feel sleepy.

4. Game on!

Important to note: We will be rolling on Sea of Sorrows server. Make sure you don’t mess this up!

And let the 1st Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend begin! Remember to read this bunch of tips before you play, it’s pretty damn useful for anyone who is jumping into Guild Wars 2 for the first time. And a word of advice from Tsubaki: Unlearn whatever thing you know about MMORPGs, Guild Wars 2 does everything differently and you will need to do alot of relearning at least for the early levels.
