    Do people really need a guide for a character creation?

    This really holds no extra info. When you go to character creation, this has 0 added value.

    Edited:

    It would be more interesting to know what differences there are when you pick those other traits, on "how you handle things", and heritage, and such.

    This guy can't be playing GW2 now right? Has to be a recording...

    http://www.own3d.tv/live#/live/282623
    I just saw someone say, "It's much better optimized from last beta". Conclusion that it must be a recording.

    Edited:

    Do they rotate the servers you play against daily in WvWvW? Or was that just for the BWE they did so?
    I believe that it's every two weeks when they declare a winner. Then is pushes you up against two other winning servers.

    I guess they wanted to switch it in the middle of the beta so people could see how it transitions.

    The reason we had trouble getting people on the same server is because Anvil Rock became full, and some FPers couldnt join. I announced in the steam chat, in this thread, in the guild, and as an announcement through the steam group, that US players can switch to Moledune.
    Not everybody did. I am guessing that players were too busy playing to check the thread.
    Next time we choose a server, it is not going to be one with a major community on it, because those got full extremely quickly.

    how often do you see item for item trading in the first place in mmos

    its almost always item for money, and the marketplace already accomplishes that

    i dont disagree though, not having a trading system was kind of awkward
    I see it all the time, whatchu talkin' 'bout? And with GW2, people are going to want to trade minis around.

    But next time we choose a server, it's going to be at release, and they're all going to be full. Hell, I don't even know if we'll be able to freely reselect our world then, even with the wipe. It kept me on Fort Aspen from the ST, and everything was supposedly wiped.

    I saw you mention switching to Moledune on here, guild chat and on Steam chat but I still saw several people staying on Anvil (including me). I still got to hang out with a few FP'ers on Anvil at the time. The main reason I didn't switch at first is because I heard that there were a lot of issues and possible down time when you did so. I didn't want to miss a second of gameplay. Although I did switch near the end of the beta to hang out with the other FP'ers who did switch.

    I was browsing the GW2 forums and found this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yGGFBki6-E&t=1m11s
    (I would [video][/video] it but that doesn't work with time URL's)

    The pictures show exactly what I want to experience in my game. To explore the world with my friends. Get together in a large group and just venture fourth into the unknown. Eventually doing stupid stuff that we can tell stories about years to come.

    Who's with me?

    Your server stays the same between betas, judging from the fact it stayed from the ST, and there was a wipe after that. So, sure, if you want to pay.

    Engineers have a lot of control and stuff but nothing that really stands out damage wise, playing one myself i just loved WvW using the Grenade Mine and Bomb kits while defending, and the flame thrower while not much damage wise using the blowback is really fun, it's like being a pyro in TF2 all over again except for..........y'know no M1+W

    amazing fun with daggers great escape utilities not many things for buffing allies really the slows duration is pretty slow unless you use pistol or sword , i thought bow was pretty weak in my opinion only used it for the teleport in skill 5 if you go back to the page before i got a pvp vid of thief i did so you can see that i used dagger dagger mostly

    it was also a completely different paced calss compared to every other one in gw2 though because of initiative, was a lot of fun switching from offensive to defensive

    what i used pretty much http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#t;ffp...baa;bbcY;ZVSZb

    will be able to do a lot better next beta weekend now i know how to properly use backstab a lot of my clips i used the stealth crit bonus for high deathblossom.

    I had a change of heart.

    I was playing the beta wrong, I just kept leveling my guy and pretty much only played theif.

    Then I did some World vs World vs World.

    Gonna play the shit out of this, probably main a warrior or guardian.

    Wow, this game wasn't even on my radar until I read the OP.
    No subscriptions?
    No point-and-click combat?
    It's almost as if it's my dream MMO.
    Gonna buy it as soon as I have money.
