I found the way Guilds (as in the internal group or band of people, not the name of the game) to be interesting.

A character can belong to multiple guilds, but only represent 1 at a time. So you can join and be apart of a number to guilds, but select which one you want to represent through the guild page.

I think GW2 will likely be a long time favorite. no sub fee's and they are blending a lot of the best attributes from all the major names.

The one down side I've found is the trading system. There is none. You have to mail items to one another. But that's a minor issue to me, you don't even have to find a mailbox anywhere. You can just click the icon on your UI and you can get your mail. Still it's a little weird to not be able to directly trade people. They said this method was chosen to alleviate trade scams,so now you have to COD to trade for gold.
You can mail your items to the person and they show in in seconds. So it's almost just like the usual trade. I kind of like what I've seen of the auction house though. It will take some getting used to, but being able to do auctions from anywhere is a nice feature.

It is fast, and like you mentioned you can access it from anywhere. However if you sell items on the AH, if I remember correctly you have to go to the AH trader dude (I forget his name) to get your money.

I am debating whether or not I should get this game. I hope they come out with some kind of free trial. What really interests me is the open PvP which is similar to DAoC RvR.

I don't expect the free trials to be for quite a while. I'm trying to remember if they did any free trials for GW1...

The open world vs world pvp sounds pretty cool, and does interest me as well.

Which come to think of it, I don't think they have tested that yet...

That would be an awesome stress test, Here's to hoping

I signed up for the beta a long time ago but never got an invite. Hopefully they do another beta weekend before it launches.

I may be wrong, but I think you can bid on stuff from wherever you are, and I *think* you get paid in the mail, but if you buy stuff, then you have to go to the Trading Post to pick it up. I didn't get much time to mess with that stuff. Last Beta weekend I shared my account with a friend and spent my time trying different races and professions.

There will be no more Betas before it launches, but if you pre-purchase you can get in on any stress tests I believe. Last one was last Thursday. They announced it the night before I think. 4 hours of play time starting noon Pacific.

Oh, I just remembered I also like to create a HOT female character and name her Jaylbate. Keep an eye out for her! (Might be hard to find in GW2 because there are SO MANY hot females in the games!)

FYI, There's a stress scheduled for tomorrow 12:00 - 4pm PST.


I knew there was some reason the trading post guy was there...

I am thinking about putting my accounts (the wife and I) and Sorrower's Furnace. The 3 day head start is going to be EPIC.
