      Guild Wars is undoubtedly one of the best massively multiplayer online role playing game. Factions is the second campaign of this great game which has a total of three campaigns and one expansion. Before going on to factions let me tell you about the Game Guild Wars.

      Guild Wars is primarily a player vs player game but it also has a very interesting story line. The level limit is only 20 in this game which is considerably lower than other games. Leveling up is really easy and you can reach level 20 in just a few days but reaching the final level is just the beginning of the game since 90% of the game is played after you have reached level 20. There are a total of 10 classes in Guild Wars : 6 classes in the original Guild Wars, 2 classes in Factions and 2 more classes in the last campaign Nightfall.

      What I love about the game is its diversity. No two classes

      are the same. No two people of the same class are the same, this seems impossible but it is true. I will explain how… Every character can have two classes, one primary and the other secondary. There are a total of 10 classes so you can imagine how many class combinations are possible. This in itself would have made the game diverse but this is not the reason the game is so liked by everyone. Each and every class has over a hundred skills and you can only choose 8 out of them at a time. Now imagine the number of skills a character can have, 2 classes = more than 200 skills.

      Since you know the general premise of the game I will move on to the factions campaign.

      The Factions campaign introduces two new classes; the Assassin and the Ritualist. These two classes add a whole new dimension to the game.

      The Assassin is an offensive melee character which a ...

      • high attack speed and dangerous poisoning skills. Assassin also have the power of shadows and can travel warp themselves instantly from one place to another. I personally began this game with Assassin as my primary class. I will not say that it is a easy class to master since they are quite vulnerable against ranged offensive classes like the necromancer. An Assassins strong point is that it can kill really fast and retreat.

        The Ritualist is a character I have not tried but I have seen my friends play it. It is mainly a ranged support type class. They use spirits to help them and can really be a pain to the other team since they are so difficult to kill. The spirits can cause a lot of damage to the other team and can also heal and buff allies. It takes quite a lot of skill to play but once you have mastered it you are force to be reckoned with. They do

        not have any real weaknesses but they can be killed with a bit of teamwork.

        The factions campaign has a wonderful story line with an Asian theme. I do not remember the exact story but it is about a long dead man who has returned and is spreading a disease which is causing normal humans to turn into ugly ferocious monster. You have to collect the items with which you can kill him.

        Guild Wars unlike many other massively multiplayer online role playing game is based completely on skill. An experienced player can easily be beaten by a relatively new player if the new player has better player skill.

        Guild Wars is free to play but you have to buy the game. This makes it even better as other good MMORPG’s always charge a monthly subscription fees.

        This is my favorite game and I play it regularly. If you like playing online role playing games I’d strongly suggest you have a look at the game.
