I play both, and both are great games. GW2 is by far more relaxing. TSW has more flavor.
Don't worry about all the theory crafting, at least at first. Follow a beginner deck build and learn from there. You are not going to get a handle on the mechanics in one day, so just relax and enjoy.
And if it gets to be too much, go back to GW2 for a while, that is what I do.
TSW is not a game focused on exploration. Sure, there's some and the areas you visit are beautiful in their own way, but they're also quite small and everything that matters is easy to find. Combat is not as polished as GW2's, but there's more customization invloved.
I'd say buy it. It's a unique games that's actually more similar to GW1 than it is to GW2. Besides, it's almost too cheap nowadays.

Originally posted by tomis16 Hey guys I'm planning to buy TSW next week, but I'd like to hear actual players about the current status of the game first. I'm currently having fun with GW2 (which, to me, it's a nice game, not the revelation of the MMOs of course, but a nice game anyway, I have 120+ hours and i'm still enjoying it), and I wanted this one to play aswell since I really like the lore and the setting of the game, since i'm a little bit bored of Fantasy-themed MMOs, been playing them for a while. I really enjoy PVE, and I kinda like the gear-grinding thing like WoW for example (I like the satisfaction of getting a hard earned new piece of gear lol). Crafting is not something I love, neither I hate. And I play some PVP from time to time, just for the fun of it, nothing too serious. I love to get lost in a immersive world (that's what I love about GW2). And I love true open world. So, is this game for me? What about the current state of the game? And is the open world nice? The combat? Thanks in advice for anyone willing to help me!
If you want an immersive open world then no, it's not for you. The zones feel quite limited and boxed in. However the quests are quite immersive and fun. The dungeons are fun for a while, and its fun to play with the skill sets. But yeah, if open world / exploration is your focus then TSW is quite lacking.
