    I'm excited for the skins and loot in dungeons, but I hope some of the huge open world bosses have some sort of unique loot/token that can be exchanged for armor and weapons that are specific to that boss.

    Not sure how it would work though seeing as events that lead up to the boss would be a large chain and you would need to repeat the chain to get enough tokens for the gear.
    They're specifically avoiding that so people don't grind for a specific event, or get mad at people who are preventing that event. You just get gold, xp and karma (a lot of it!) like every other event. It's possible you could open up a new merchant that sells unique loot that way though.

    Well I guess the GW2 "endgame(though anyone can join)" will probably be the dragons, which is what the story is themed around, having read the books etc. Arenanet didn't want to limit anyone, so I don't think there will be any "endgame" that will require you to be X skilled and Y geared. It will mostly just require people working together.

    Don't know about anyone else but I found grinding in MMO's relaxing/therapeutic at times, just play some nice music and do some quests.

    I've been using the wanderer armor since the very beginning. I think I upped it to +5 though. Currently I'm on Gwyn.

    But the times when it wasn't relaxing were pure hell, am I correct?

    I wouldn't say pure hell, but mundane, I see your point.
    Was always cool playing WoW at night cruising around Zangamarsh or Netherstorm with some ambient music back in the Burning Crusade days.

    Probably the stats, since you can get stone things that let you change the look of your armor to that of any other armor you've found.

    *Shut up and take my money!* principle? I agree.
    When GW2 is released I'll buy it, get me some char slots, and see what else is worth buying.

    Even if the collectors edition was +10$ and only came with a piece of paper that said thanks I'd still get it over the normal edition.

    That said, I'm hoping for a soundtrack, some sort of physical object (t-shirt etc.) and in-game extra.

    I recall them saying somewhere that there will be a signup to every new beta event and that previous signups carry over.

    Other than that, your only hope is to pretty much find someone from ArenaNet and bend over.

    Also, it was 72+ hours.

    Well considering there has already been a press beta, and they already did signups for another beta, and I THINK there was another one before press, there are already 3. I also recall reading that more are coming through the months.

    I don't think they will have more sign ups until those million people who did sign up have been gone through.

    They might have another sign-up opportunity, but as far as I know if you signed up already then you're signed up for all beta events.

    Although because so many people signed up they might not bother opening signups again, and just take a different group from the original signups because they hate you and you personally, Killuah.

    Edited:

    I changed computers since I signed up. I hope that won't matter too much.
    It does, you're not getting into the beta now.

    Sorry.
