My understanding is that reaching the level cap of 20 is not an indication of the length of the game at all. ArenaNet wanted the focus to not be on "leveling up" or seeing how high a level you could reach, hence the cap of 20. I've only played about 12 hours or so and am almost at level 9. However, I know that I'm nowhere near the end of the single player game. I just recently started in the post-searing part of the game.

Yes, the percentage hit icon that you see in the upper left will then go away. Seems like a way for the game engine to nudge you to get back to town and buy whatever you might need to boost your armor, etc.

Did you know if their developers have future plans to make this game a never ending quest.. with future patches to the game content as it happens with others MORPG games.?

From what I've read, it sounds like there are big plans for a number of expansion packs to Guild Wars. These would not be free but not sure what kind of price range they would be in. I'll try to find out where I read that.

Cool.. i dont mind paying for mission packs..because thats optional.. what i never liked is the montly fees..

BTw.. saw some very nice looking Castles in the game ,can you enter them ? or they are they just there only for the eye candy. ?

BTW..
Found some updates that will be done to the game.. very soon.. in a patch.. maybe it was posted before.. here they are..

http://www.guildwars.com/news/gameupdates.html

Can't wait to get my hands on this game..

A side note.. RAge3d is also hooked with GW.. they have their own clan.. maybe we can fight againts them .

I hit lvl20 and now fighting in the hell of somewhat (the left buttom island). Well, one of the benefits of being lvl20 to me is that you are more easy to capture elite skills from the monsters, thats an important part of the game.

How i see this game? Other from questing, your main objective is to get the skills that you want, probably as many as prossible.

And you need to get to Drokanr (forget spelling) to get your last armor, not counting those 15k.

I've finished all the quests inside the primer. I'm trying to take on the Charr pre-searing and getting my ass-kicked. Damnit the game just went down. P-E-N-I-S!!!!!

Ok.. This is one of the best review have seen.. cleared almost all my questions..

http://www.scifi-rpgs.com/guild-wars-review.html

It does a quick but straighforward comparison between GW and the more traditional MMORPGS games.

Interestingly.. ARENAnet developers of GW (made with some ex-bioware WOW developers) have plans to upgrade the game to the next chapter every 6 months ,and the game already released is just chapter 1. so there should be a chapter 2 late in the year with some others ~ 100 hours of gameplay. if things go well with no delays

The game consist of 25 single player cooperative online missions with 3 multiplayer massive PVP modes.., an as already have been said before players with TOP places PVP mode will have access to extra game unique "single player" multi cooperative online Role playing missions .. with cool new stuff as long as they are on the top players in Guildwars world. this alone is enough motivation for the people to continue improving their skills and their characters combos... but leave behind the people less skilled in combat modes//

That's a pretty good system...however..where the hell do you buy new armor and stuff?! All I can find are merchants who sell sh*t, customizers, and then crafters. Don't they have someone who just sells weapons without needing to have 5 iron ingots and this other crap to craft an item?

How did you get past the north wall to find that guy? There was that level you had to pull, but the gate closed way before you could get down to it.

And yeah, it got hard. fast.

You have to party up with someone to get through that door.
