So like the title says...ARR promotes grouping from what I've been reading. It has some challenging content, then against does GW2. But how hardcore is this game. How long will it take to beat the content? Are there death penalties? Just curious. I'm currently playing GW2 casually on and off. My friend is trying to get me to look at this game. So that's what im doing. I'm an old EQ1 fan.
