I spent an hour trying to find out what I wanted to be, its sooooo difficult.

In the end I decided to go for Norn Warrior, Norn are known for there ability to transform into animals such as the Bear, Snow Leopard, Wolf etc at lvl 30, only 11 more lvls for me

I went with Ranger, my brother is an Engineer. Both enjoying it.

Can't believe i've only explored 8% of the world, it's vast!

That's immense! I've been leaning towards Engineer, seems like a ton of gamestyles to be had!

Is it good? Should I play it instead of World of Warcraft?

It's different to WoW (some say in a good way, others disagree, that's opinions for you!)
I've never really got into Wow in a big way due to the subscription fee.

For around £30 one-off payment I'd say give it a go. What have you got to lose (apart from £30 obviously) - If you're a fan of MMORPG's then I'm sure you'd like this. The advantage is that this is subscription free, so you can play as much or as little as you like when you feel like it. I've played GW(1) for years off and on and am now playing this and loving it.

Guardian (level 34) here by the way.

thanks was waiting for it to drop below 30, HOT.

Absolutely fantastic game.

Every other MMO feels ancient and desperately boring after playing GW2. Its just that good.

110 hours played over 12 days so far and counting...

Level 67 elementalist here, amazing game, story is great, gameplay is great. I haven't had to 'grind' once. since you get exp from doing most things, if you find yourself a too low a level there's a lot to do to make things better; dynamic events, quests, crafting, PVP, even just exploring, I've never found myself with nothing to do. Only problem is there are still bugs in game, with things going wrong every so often and the servers have glitched a number of times, kicking me out of the game. Quite infuriating at times but after another 30 mins of play, all is forgiven!

Definitely worth it for this price!

Played as warrior found it a bit dull now as a engie much better try every class.

Awesome, just ordered thanks!

Thanks. Been waiting for a below £30 price.

Good price, will wait for reported issues to calm down.

Yeah that's a good idea. It's been a good launch in comparison to other MMOs but still had issues. Things are speeding up though, the trading post and overflow issues have been improved a lot.

I went for elementalist too. Ive spent over an hour deleting and re-creating characters. Still not sure who i like I fancy warrior so probably going back to it. Cheers Didnt know they transform into animals

It has calmed down. It's a great time to join.

i must have a different GW2 to a lot of people, it feels so rubbish to play, the movement is terrible, the graphics are worse than WoW. I was playing Tera but i think that needs to go F2P to survive, graphically Tera is brilliant and the combat system is really fun.

Maybe i didn't give GW2 long enough but the first impression was a very bad one.

Hello , do they ship the case with the cd and the code ? Or they send you the serial code through email?

I played the original guild wars and its expansions from day one release, and thought the game was absolute brilliant and still several years from release the original is still great, however im still a bit disappointed with the 2nd instalment, with no outposts no missions no guild battles in context as the previous game, im afraid the game has lost its appeal to me, however people delving into the guild wars franchise for the first time don't let this put you off, the second game is a masterpiece and for a one off payment of £30 or so for years of great content its a bargain.

WoW fanboy here, anti-other-mmos. But WvWvW looks so good, tempted.

As an ex-WOW addict, I've been looking for a game to replace WOW for a coupleyears now. Am hoping this might be it. Never played the original GW, but heard a lot of good things about it and by all accounts this is at least as good.

Order placed. Too good to miss out on at this price - thanks!

Awesome game.

You beeping genius. Thanks!

Part of my birthday present sorted - I knew I was right not to have pre ordered

All I need now is Borderlands 2 and Darksiders 2 < £25 on Xbox... <£20 would be even better... Wish I hadn't missed the Argos misprice :'(

Big thanks from me too!!!

Now I am only missing Starcraft 2!!!

Basically believe most of the hype, the game definately delivers. It's definately better looking than WoW (although expect random frame rate issues on ultra until there are finished optimised drivers and game updates) in just about every way, very little in the way of console grade texturing. You still have the action bar with cooldowns that just about all MMO games use but combat is greatly enhanced with manual dodging control... so it feels less like WoW's stale lock and button bash method and a lot more fun.

Comparisons to GW1 will find it totally eclipses it, proper auction house (everything can be bought with ingame currency so micro transactions is purely time saving), decent combat mechanics, better art style, reasonable voice acting, brilliant music and custom playlist options for your own tunes, crafting is done quite well although it'll be months before the market settles down.

I have no problem saying this is better than all the big name MMOs I've played over the last 10 years, just don't expect genre changing stuff from it as it's more streamlining and tweaking stuff that all the other games did badly.

If you are a diehard PvP fan this game also unlocks you to max level on day zero for all PvP and worldvsWorld raids, leveling is purely for PvE traits and skills, you can unlock all the weapon attacks in 20 minutes for any character... so you get all the good stuff very early on with only the skill/traits buff unlocks reserved for leveling, making the game a lot more casual for MMO noobs while the pros can pretty much jump straight to what they find fun and not a grind.

In PvE every area on the map has auto grading for levels, so if you happen to hit lv80 in a week it makes zero difference to PvE as it drops you down to balance so eliminates all issues redoing lower areas, and respawn rates are quite good for crafting materials.

oh and the Admins are very strict over cheating and glitch abusers.. so if you are a abuser/bot user/etc... your account gets perma banned...lol

So what doesn't the game do well?
1. The usual launch issues of video drivers not being perfected so frame rates can be iffy with no reason in places
2. Servers being full ship you into overflow duplicate servers quite often when changing zones with ques
3. Party managing is still broken (can't stay as a party if not all in same server instance... that needs a lot of work as very annoying if a party has a member in overflow the whole team should migrate but they dont..old GW1 had selectable instances...GW2 currently hasn't tackled that yet.. but they are rolling out server upgrades so the issue will pass soon enough.
4. Doesn't support Dx11 features as far as I can tell... so that keeps it shy of best looking MMO out.

Great game IMHO.

I played the original for some years and the whole GW2 PvE is better for my two pennys worth. In the original a lot of the PvE required you to have a party and when your guild are offline running around with NPCs trying to complete the solo quests wasn't that great. In GW2 the events system works really well and the whole game does feel much less focussed on partying up in PvE - it still helps but isn't essential. Again in the original partying up with your guild members to go through PvP (HoH etc.) was pretty much essential but with WvW it's not, so for newcomers without guilds you can still get in on all the PvP action.

Whether your more of a PvE or PvP fan this is a cracking game and well worth 29 quid. Highway72's comment is well worth reading too. For me it's more fun that WoW as it feels less of a grind. Hope to see you all on fissure of woe server soon as we need all the help we can get!

Try greenmangaming. They have a code for 25% off all digital downloads (GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G) and are selling Borderlands for £29.99 which makes it around £22.50 with the code.

You clearly bought GW1, or you're just trolling.

Also tip for any new players. Gandara and Desolation are the 2 main PvP servers, with Desolation being brutal in WvW. Gandara also dominate it most of the time as well, unless Desolation get matched, in which case they get raped, like everyone else.

Also no rush to 80 you can enjoy it. Much love for this game wvwvw is lots of fun!

why am i trolling? it looks poor and plays poors. Ive played MMO's for 13 years and have tried many many different ones, its just my opinion and i would not recommend the game to people.
