    After 3 BWE's I still can't say that I have a fraction of what the game world offers but felt like their was a good medium dose of steam punk. You definitely will want to lean on picking either Asura or Char.

    See you in Tyria!

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Bah, consider yourself lucky.  I tried to pay a friend 20 dollars to take D3 off of my hands and he insisted I give him at least 40 or keep it myself.

    I would say char for the Black Citidal feels very steam punk the Asura feel techy and there fun to play more tech involed with them. I played a char in BWE1 and that felt very very steam punk with all the moving parts in there town.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Charr area is steampunky.

    Asura area is techie.

    I would recommend trying out several professions with as many different weapons and utilities as possible.  I am going with two professions at launch that in other games I would not play but for some reason they fit me in GW2.  If you are into guns Engineers get pistols and rifles, Warriors get rifles, Thieves get pistols, and Mesmers can offhand a pistol.  But racial choice also effects things as Charr have access to a Charzooka and Asuran have access to Golems.

    Welcome to the game and after you create that first character and do the kid in the candy store thing (the game is gorgeous) take a deep breath and sloooow down.  I was shocked to discover that I missed over half of the area I started in with my first character just because I was in such a hurry to complete hearts.

    But I doubt there will be enough adults to keep us kids in line. LOL

     

     

    I have not started any research.

    I don't care about being on a realm that dominates Wv...well, maybe a little, but I do want a healthy population.

     

     

    WOOHOO more fun for us then

     

    as for the research might I suggest my article http://www.mmorpg.com/blogs/swordmark45/072012/23485_Guild-Wars-2-Planning-your-characters-personal-stories

    as for server population you could look at  http://www.gw2guilds.org/ and see if this is any help also

    A MMO is like life. It is something to cherish and enjoy upon in it journey. So why race to the end of it. In life at the end you die.

    Hey! Thanks for the site references.
    I'm pretty well set on a Charr Engineer at this point.

    As far as a server, I'm researching guilds now, I've always had a better time in guilds that were run by people my own age who aren't afraid to deal with drama swiftly.


    incidentally, I noticed:

    The focus on hardcore RP makes me laugh. I wonder what their definition of hardcore RP is.

    Geezer, Colin Johanson recorded a personal message for you and asked me to pass it on. Unfortunately he hadn't been to makeup before recording, but he felt it was too important to wait...
