Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I've been playing all the beta events and I am stoked for the release on the 28th /25th for us prebookers). It's the first actual fantasy MMO I've enjoyed and liked the style of. The races (technically, species) are unique and the professions are very nicely diverse. So to the point that I have a hard time choosing what I will play as with as some of my later character choices.

I've already decided on starting as a Human female Guardian and going for a tanky build so that I can be the support tank for my guild. That and I love their abilities with the weapons.


Anyone else been playing the betas or just simply looking forward to it?

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I've had fun with the betas and I'm definitely going to play when it comes out
I mostly played as a Norn Ranger, and I like it a lot
I'm also looking forward to playing with my old Guild Wars guild again

Also plan on playing. Played the first one, and have also been playing all the betas as well.

I've been looking forward to Guild Wars 2 for quite awhile. I pre-purchased back in April and participated in all of the beta weekends. I've purposedly not played more than an hour or so each time so there's plenty of new stuff to do in all areas when the game goes live.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

Im really looking forward to this one. The Betas were great, I played all sorts of professions and honestly each one had some appeal. Im pretty sure I'll start with a Gaurdian, but a warrior isnt out of the question either.

I love the fact you can send crafting materials to a special "vault", then pull them out when you are at a crafting station.

Those are the two I was torn on. I ended up going with a human Guardian.

This was from fighting the Shadow Behemoth last night. This game often looks like a painting.

Also liked this one:

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I had fun this weekend with the head start. Aside from overflow and party frustrations I think the launch is going well so far.
I've got 2 characters up to around level 11 and I had some fun with my guild mates adventuring into dangerously high level areas

my main guy is a Norn Ranger (rides again! ) and I also have a Human Guardian. I haven't seriously tried the other professions, but so far the one's I've tried are really fun to play.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

So..how is it? I should be buying it this week. Planning to make a female blood legion Charr, but have to read some more on the lore.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I have a level 16 charr ranger and a lvl 18 Asura Necro. The necro is my favorite by far. The ranger is OK but am not really liking the spell tree progression as the character will level . I also started a human ele which I tried in beta and really liked. I'm pretty sure the necro will be my main.

The only time I had trouble with lag of any kind was on the first day. So far grouping has gone really well. The few times we end up on diff overflow we seem to travel to the main map pretty quickly and end up together usually within a few minutes.

I can't wait to get high enough to run my first dungeon. Will be fun to see

That's great, glad to hear a good report. How many characters can you have per server?
