To any wondering if they should give GW2 a go, i would say go for it best mmo atm for me.

Each time i log in and play a little bit of WoW in me dies.  Dynamic events tho done before with Warhammer online this is how upcoming mmos should stick too no more grinding single mobs to level up dynamci events makes it fun to grind. Server overflow if the realm is full GW will send you to the overflow servers so you can start playing as soon as you log in. With weapons you learn they give different combat skills 5 per weapon class i didn't know this as i never kept tabs on the game when in development and my biggest moan about GW2 before its release was how we only get 5 skills to use  but now realising each weapon class has its own skills. Brilliant.  Oh and the Charr dance is the all black haka yeah i stopped to go grab a cuppa and left my Charr warrior dancing with a bunch of random dancers in Kryta came back and notice the Charr warrior was performing the all black Haka. Haha

I read in chat last night @80 there is only one dungeon and no world raids yet but there is plenty to do that its not a problem, i hope not cause that is what killed Conan Online mmo nothing to do once you hit end level so people left in droves.  Here's hoping there is more dungeons and maybe a raid to come out in later patches.  Haven't tried pvp yet too low.

So far the Thief is my favorite, but ive also rolled a Ranger, Warrior + hammer = smash everything and win and Engineer = gunslinger mad hatter with heals. Its gonna take me a while to get to 80 cause they're all good to play that i cannot stick to just one. Get all four to 80 ya reckon?

Great game

Only thing about the Engineer is he's a bit quishy, is your engineer a high level if so whats he like at surviving. I enjoy using the engineer as a healer.

Add your own music to GW2!

Make a play list of each song i use VLC media player then save the song in /my documents/Guildwars2/music folder.

The game currently recognizes eight playlists: Ambient, Battle, BossBattle, City, Crafting, MainMenu, NightTime, Underwater.

Playlist formats - .asx .m3u .pls .wax .wpl
Audio types - .aiff .flac .mp3 .ogg .wav

So if i wanted a song to play during the MainMenu i would save it as this

Filename - MainMenu
Save as type - .m3u

making sure its saved in the GW2 music folder. Load up the game and your song should play during the main menu. There is nothing more epic than having the Bee Gees Staying Alive song playing during a Boss Battle. Haha

Ive replaced GW2 music with Conan the Barbarian sound tracks,  some music from Morrowind and some bee gees songs for the lols.

The music "trick" works and is awesome. Cheers for the music suggestions too! Haha I love how the Bee Gees plays when you don't expect it to due to the shock (distraction) of how big the monster is. Definitely adds to the atmosphere.

GW2 Server..

Is there a popular server for New Zealand players associated with GW2 ?
Maybe one that covers East Australia/NZ/West USA with a low ping rate..

Kaos have you given up on GW2 in favour of WoW, if so why?
