Yes I'm afraid that my WoW addiction would prevent me from ever truly immersing myself in GW...but then again, for no monthly fee, I'll hold my breath until it's released.

Are you talking to me? If so, hey, thanks a lot! I'll download the client once I get home from work.

Well I've played about 7 hours of it now and I don't think I'll bother with it much more. I expect that it would be more noob friendly when you have a manual to go with it but it really was frustrating to get into. Some of the objects you collect I had no clue what to do with, some quests were just too ambiguous and the locator for where to go to complete quest was annoying. Is there anyway to get this to show in the full map? Although I do admit I am hardly an RPG junky.

Why does everything cost so much? And yet sell for so cheap, why do I want a crappy weapon that will cost 100gold and a few of my items? I only got up to level 7 and I got to the stage where I wasn't gaining any xp from low level enemies, so it forced me to go further outward to get xp :/

Graphics however were very nice in almost every regard while it ran brilliantly with virtually no load times between zones. Monsters look nice and seem varied.

Not sure what is up with the skills trainers, you go to trainer A whom you have gotten skills off who sends you to trainer B to get more skills, but you have skills from trainer B, and ironincally he sends you back to trainer A.

I didn't even join a guild and only half the time did I actually team up with anyone but it was fun at times nonetheless. Even though I had heard this game wasn't rewarding you on time spent I see exactly that, it takes a long time to go anywhere unless there is a city nearby. 7 hours for level 7 is really slow but I think the max is level 20 so it's not too bad. Perhaps I need to join a guild and just fight other guilds or something?

I went down to the river and kill a couple of things. Then went and played WOW till 2am. Maybe I will lose intrest in WOW by the time this game is released. I am just to distraced to care.

I will say the graphics are damn nice. Better than WOW.

Haha, they ended the beta by killing everybody in the towns by the evil Gwen

I enjoyed it enough, got to level 12, spent twice that many hours doing it. Died too many times lol. I didn't do much PvP (academy and some in the gladiators arena) mostly did just lots of coop missions which I thought were great when you get a good team together and start owning.

I have said it about 4 times now and I'll say it again, guildwars sucks. It is honestly so boring it is mind numbing, the only reason there is so much interest is because there is no monthly fee. Trust me this game does not come close to WOW in anyway.

They did improve upon a lot of things that really annoyed me in the initial beta. I'm still probably not going to buy it, though. It was still kinda boring.

LOL, I did the same thing! I actually only played GW for like 3 hours before quitting and getting back to WoW. It's neat and pretty, but it's not nearly as good and I'm afraid nothing is going to break the stranglehold WoW has on me.

Also it was kinda boring, like sat and vamp said.
