Hey guys.... I have a couple of questions about gw2 that hopefully some of you can answer. I have watched quite a bit of videos and read a bunch about it ( Definately looking forward to playing it full time) but I just have a few questions I'd like answered.
1- From what you guys have seen...are the mechanics of gw2 similar to gw1 or is it radically different. Reason being is that i would like to get a "head start" on learning how to play with Gw1.
2- Concerning transition between zones/regions..... something ( dont recall exactly what) has led me to believe that transitions will occur via portals only. For example i wont be able to cross a river ( elywnn forest >duskwood) but instead i would have to find a portal that leads me to the next zone. This is not a loading screen complaint...the question merely being will I go over a hill for example ( at any point on that hill), hit a loading screen, and be on that same hill but in the next region.....or will i run into a wall of mountains and have to look for a portal.
If it is the portal case, i believe that will take away a great deal from an open world feel.
3- What will the view distance be compared to WOW..... if possible using WOW terms. Will i be able to see stormwinds towers from Darkshire for example?
4- is Q2 2012 the general estimated consensus release time?
Thnx in advance every1
