I guess I'll play a female Norn Ranger because I love Vikings, Hunters and Females
Btw I love the music
Norn women look pretty damn good...

I found the picture of the female Elementalist to be pretty awesome, but I can't get the image out of my head of a female Norn Guardian... Kinda like a Valkyrie.

Okay, so after checking out the info linked in this thread I am so totally going to give this game a shot. One thing I noticed is the way they're doing support classes, which is to say that their support abilities are active applications of force on the battlefield just in a way beyond direct damage attacks. Considering my class in WoW has been totally buggered by Blizzard's version of a support class (ie: "gimped healer"), it really highlights the difference in gameplay.

From what I've seen the environments are just amazing. I dearly hope the cities look as good in game as they do in the screenshots.

Everything about the game seems amazing. Help kill something, you get experience! See someone else harvesting a node for crafting? You can too!

I know, I love it. But seriously, reading about this game actually makes me a bit angry, because the game I'm currently playing and paying for seems downright regressive by comparison.

I cancelled my subscription ages ago. It was a six-month recurring so it lasted until mid July, but I really got bored playing WoW by mid-June. I don't think I'll be investing in a Pay to Play game for quite some time, which is definitely why Guild Wars 2 is starting to appeal to me.

Also looking forward to Diablo 3, but GW2 just has more.

Thanks for the video! An excellent watch so far. I have to say, the city feels overwhelming in size and scope though. That's not quite a positive comment either, as I find when a game has a super huge, massive city, I will often try to avoid it for the sake of retaining my limited sanity.

Well that's why you have your own private instanced district in the city.

Yes, but I'm quite certain that, at some point, I'll have to venture into that much larger city in order to craft goods, buy and sell stuff from vendors, come across event breadcrumb trails, etc... A city that size will take hours to get acclimated with.

A Charr Thief will be the closest thing to a Tauren Rogue we've got. I must make one someday.

You know... this may be a super newb move, but hell, we all start somewhere...


I've been reading up on the Wiki all day and, so far, I haven't seen a thing about guilds or guild-like organizations players can make and be a part of... Is there a reason for that, such as it hasn't been released yet or are guilds more akin to a pre-made in-game faction or something?

I don't know much either, but there is a short snippet on Guilds on the Wiki.

Ah, thanks! Still kind of wondering if they'll be player-made or preset by in-game and in-lore guilds.

From the preset in GW, it's likely they'll be player-made.

Their cities are all massive since they wanted to capture the fact that they are the main bastions of the races.

Here's another city, Lions Arch.

Isn't Lion's Arch neutral and open to all races, rather than belonging to any specific one? I understand from the lore it once was a very prominent human city, but that it isn't anymore.

Yea I think it's neutral now as it was re-built.

Here's the video of the Charr's Black Citadel which is very steam punkish.

Think this is pretty neat:

Apparently there will be race specific armor and of course 'normal' armor.
