So what are some of the prof combinations you would recommend for my 2nd char? I have only used my w/r thus far. It would have been smarter I'm assuming to start out with w/mo but oh well, I didn't read into it a lot before starting the game. w/r isn't too bad because I like having a pet however at level 19 I haven't found much to do with my Ranger skills.

My vote would be for Ranger/Monk. You are already somewhat familiar with some of the Ranger skills. It would allow you to learn some Monk skills without straying too far from what you already are familiar with. If you are wanting to get into something totally crazy, try Ranger/Mesmer, the ultimate interrupter. I will go out on a limb and say you will never have as much fun as being an interrupter, or unstoppable trapper.

With the Ranger/Mesmer combo, you can use Mantra of Resolve to keep you from being interrupted when trapping. You won't get MoR until late in the game, but you'll love it when you do. It's so fun running up behind people (in PvP) or monsters and trapping away while they can do nothing about it

What is later at night? We have an Aussie in our guild, and he's usually on at the same time we are. He's usually having lunch when it's like 11PM here, but we don't mind. Like I said in an earlier post, we have guild members and guild friends from all across the globe. I don't believe that you "must" find a Korean or Austrailian guild. Best of luck in your hunt

W/R can be quite interesting, more interesting then most of the typical wammos.I may even try changing my secondary Monk to Ranger when I get bored with my war sometime in the future.

I suppose you already use Troll Unguent that is a strong HP regen.

Try this, use a quick axe and the sweet "Apply Poison" from your ranger skills use it before engaging each group that way you have your enemies on either HP degen (poison) or deep wound or both! (yummy), pretty effective in PvE... in fact its a killer.W/R can double as a good Droknar runner too.Pets cannot help a high level warrior that much imo.

About second character, I made a fire elementalist after seeing how much fun zoomy was having with his fire ele and I dont regret that decision (thanks for the inspiration zoomy).After you had earned all your skills you just need to take a break from playing your fire ele once in a while to prevent feeling like a Damage Dealer bot!

E/Me for dodging interrupts while being able to equip more Glyphs and Triple or even Quad MS if you ever want to try it.("Quad anything" has a nice buzz ring to it nowadays with all the talk about Quad Core CPUs/Quad SLI and now Quad MS. :b )

I just played for about an hour and a half and I honestly forgot how fun this game is. I was playing my Ranger/Elementalist and while I'm still lacking any really solid Elementalist skills, it was still pretty fun to use varying combos of the ranger skills I have.

I have to admit: level 20 henchmen KICK ASS. I just went out into Talus Chute and was beating up on pretty much everything that came my way. It was decent XP, too.
