That's great, glad to hear a good report. How many characters can you have per server?
5, but you can buy more character slots.
My main is a female human engineer, with with the huntsman and leatherworking proffesions.
Small tip, buy some harvesting tools asap, you can start harvesting food, wood and metal from the get-go.

It is not a per server thing but a game thing. You get so many character slots to begin with and then you can actually purchase additional slots through the in-game store. Once you pick a home world all your characters are assgined to that world (server) but you can play cross server anytime with friends which is nice and join cross server guilds as well .

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I like the game so far. It has a cool art style and the gameplay actually feels fun! My problem with it so far is there's too little to do in-between levels. Your personal quest is the most fun thing to do but they make you wait multiple levels between each iteration of it. But ... the smaller quests are quite rare so you end up grinding quite a bit. Then again, it's hard to argue with an MMO that has no subscription fee.

Are you doing the world events? I noticed they upped the xp quite a bit several days ago so I am no longer outleveling the hearts for quests. I have not had to do any grinding at all. So far the leveling is going very smoothly but I do the events if they are in the area. Oh and harvesting stuff gives you xp as well so I harvest all I can.

Yeah, I would try to participate in any world events going around if you're having trouble with keeping leveled for content. With the level downscaling in game, it's worth it even if you've "leveled past it". Plus, a lot of them are a blast. The game really rewards exploration.

Yes, I am. I'm still finding that there should be more quests to do that aren't hearts or world events though.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

A friend of mine and I have been having a lot of fun duoing monsters across the world. If anyone is interested in grouping with us or potentially looking into guilding up, we're on North America server Tarnished Coast.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

Sorry guys for not reporting back sooner.

In short: I LOVE THIS GAME.

I'm at level 52 with my female human guardian now, and thus far it's been fantastic. I've spent most of my time in PvE just exploring. I can't believe how fun it is just doing that, I haven't had this much fun exploring since I played "Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" in '98. All the races are awesome. The Skritt are hilarious and the Quaggans are incredibly charming.

Tried some sPvP yesterday for the first time since release. Played a bit with my build (which you can do in the lobby without paying any ingame currency btw) and found a really good one for my Guardian for sPvP. Ended up owning with my brother for most of the eight matches we played. WvWvW is great, but I haven't played a huge amount since release I have to admit. Mostly because there was some balancing issues to start with, but that's been handled now.

I've also filled my all my character slots, did that pretty quickly to have some decent names for them. I currently have:

-Female Azura Elementalist
-Female Sylvari Engineeer
-Male Charr Ranger
-Male Norn Thief

Thus far I've enjoyed playing with of them, but my Guardian is definitely my main.

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

I am also finally getting the knack of the crafting thing and am actually getting levels just doing that too. Now that I have figured out how to do that properly with "discovery" it's actually kind of fun.

Yeah, crafting is lots of fun. I'm also loving some of the world events that branch out into larger storylines. Those are really cool ...

Re: Anyone else looking forawrd to Guild Wars 2?

anyone been doing endgame content? like dungeons, raids? Just wondering what there is after level 80 and maxing my professions. I still have a way to go, but just curious, cause once people get to 80 if there isn't much left to do people tend to leave in droves......
