4)can u cross the river without using the bridge ? and have contact with water?

For example in guildwars outdoors arent streamed ,but individual atached levels ,with long loading times.THis take away the flow and some of the realism in the game,on the positive side you can go virtually as far as your eyes can see unless your are in a coast.
I had to go in to work. I meant to only take half a day off but ended up going a few hours over that. So, someone else will have to answer some of them or I can later tonight since I have some stuff to do after work.

I did go through the water without using the bridge. You can swim in the water, go underwater, etc.
