Some Perspective: A Vanguard Re-review
Generally it's good to consider the whole game when doing a review. I think Ralsu and Dalmarus just got served.
You've read Ralsu's review. Then you read Dalmarus' view. Now, check out Machail's Vanguard review! What is different about this review is that for the first time ever, actual Ancient Port Warehouse raiding is reviewed!
Raid content is a challenge. A very big challenge. The creatures
in APW are unlike any you've seen anywhere else in game. The trash mobs
have a lot of hit points and take a good raid team to take out. They'll
throw a few tricks at you, like AEs when you least expect it. Every mob in
this dungeon has a learning curve to it. Some steeper than others.
