I'll probably pre order tonight. Do I still get early access?

So what do you guys think about professions?

I'm leaning towards either a Necromancer or a Thief.

I just recieved my last chance to get in early email from ncsoft

I love #5 about the wolves!

I often feel like such a scum mercenary, anyone with a bit of gold and an exclamation mark over their head can make me go and wipe out a whole village of peaceful orcs.

So if there are no gear grinds, what's the end game once you level cap? Achievements? Collecting skills?

I will start up this weekend. I don't think there will be a major rush to level-cap due to the scaling of levels for the different zones. We do have a guild site already up and members are welcome to join now.

Want a game that gets rid of the gear grind? check
Want a game that levels the field in PvP? check
Want a game without the standard kill and loot quests? check
Want a game where classes dont have set roles(ie heals, tank, etc)? check
Want a game that designed to just be fun? check

Alright, I need an honest DSLR opinion. How does this compare vs things like WOW, D2, D3, Torchlight etc. You can base your answer off whatever reason game mechanics, story, pvp, etc etc. Thanks ^_^

You can search through our conversations or take my word on it, it's different than all those games. It's def an evolution to the MMO game genre. Def will be a great solid game.

But heading on vacation so probably won't be posting much.

Im just concerned about PvP

All the videos Ive watched indicate PvP engagements last anywhere from 5min to forever.

The cool thing with this game is that there is no monthly fee. If you don't have time to play it, or want to wait, it will always be there later. I just started back on GW1 that I bought when it first came out, and I have access to it still with my account. If that makes a difference.

This next month will be great for gamers. D3 1.0.4, GW2, MoP patch, TL2 to name a few. Looks like the competition is benefiting us gamers... I like it.

I feel the same way, got ripped off by SWTOR CE. Only bought digital edition of GW2 this time around. I think the 20% off is still around

I'm really contemplating picking this game up. It does look intriguing. I just have a bad taste in my mouth after plopping 80 dollars on SWTOR. I don't want to do the same with this one.

anyone who played the last several days in the limited beta/stress test... do WvWvW?... is the rubberbanding gone?

From what i have been reading its a case by case basis depending on video card and drivers. I am running a GTX460 with the last 29x.xx drivers and only had an fps drop in really large fights with lots of effects. (Q6600 core quad)

in the beta, the only place to get gems (whether cash or gold) was trough the trading post (Anet store). They apparently have a formula that varies the (gold) price per gem depending on the demand and availability.

The devs indicated that they will have a set amount coming into the economy so this will make the gold costs of gems (exchange rate - gold -> gems or gems -> gold) constantly fluctuate.

The cash option is set, however.
