Lets get into business. Guild Wars was my first "MMO" and when I started playing it, I was 15 years old. Nowadays, when I'm 20+, I still enjoy playing it. And I sure am waiting eagerly for Arenanets next big game: Guild Wars 2.
Guild Wars 2 changes almost everything that was in original Guild Wars. Its a whole different game, not an expansion first of all, and if you didn't like Guild Wars back in the days, you might like this one (though that might work also opposite). Anet has not stated release date yet, but it will propably come out in 2012. Lets just hope it comes before judgement day so we have some time trying it out. In GW2, there is not one race to play (human), there are 5 of them:
These 5 races can all choose from 8 professions which to play:
Thief, Ranger, Guardian, Warrior, Elementalist and Necromancer. There are 2 yet to be announced professions, and one of them are suggested to be Mesmer. On of the interesting aspects of the game is that there are no profession specialised for healing. All of the profession can heal in some way, but there is also that thing that you cannot target your allies directly with your skills.
I will left all the rest of the game mechanics for wikipedia obviously, and now I will bring in some info that you cannot find there. Annual PAX East ended few days ago, and GW2 was in a big role there. you can see some gameplay footage of the norn area, guardian and thief playing and stuff like that in youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=guild+wars+2+pax+east&aq=f ).
There are also useful forum that will give you a chance to discuss your opinions of the game and news Anet publishes: http://www.guildwars2guru.com/forum/
From now on, I will start giving you guys info from the game as it comes out and I hope you can get as much out of it as possible.
ps. I will propably play human ranger or charr/norn warrior in the game, they look so furious :DD
