    Probably because it's a versatile class and performs well. Also has some of the most visually appealing spells.

    Elementalist - I'm pretty sure it's not, where did you see this?

    Not sure where they got that information though. Can't be based off of what people played in the BWE, since there were no asura/sylvari in the BWEs.

    The engineer followed by the mesmer are probably the two weakest professions in the game imo and need the most balance work. The guardian is currently overtuned in sPvP (Disturbing survivability + point control) and the ele is currently strong in PvP while also making explorables hundreds of times easier. The 4 classes with the most balance complaints (that I heard about) positive or negative are also the top 2 and bottom 2 classes. The results aren't all too surprising, really.

    All right. Haven't really cared about PvP balance, honestly, so I had no idea. Still think the Engineer is the most entertaining class to play out of all the ones I've tried so far, and no amount of "it's weak and underpowered" will make me feel otherwise. Enjoyment > power.

    I was just pointing out that it's a common occurrence. The more powerful classes/professions in MMOs tend to be the more played. Especially if that MMO is just starting out and the power difference is already being talked about, since people generally don't have a huge attachment to a class/profession they are currently playing.

    Yeah, I didn't mean the latter half to sound like it was directed at you specifically. More of a general "so what if X profession can do Y% better, I'm still having fun" kind of attitude I'm feeling whenever I put that flamethrower backpack on.

    Which version are you guys buying? Digital deluxe just gets a pet and one time use items only. Anything am missing? Just checking if am missing something serious here if I buy normal copy.

    You can buy the normal one, and upgrade to the deluxe version at a later time if you want and going for the deluxe myself.

    Buying the standard edition personally. Might potentially upgrade to Deluxe at a later date, but as it looks now, I feel the extra stuff isn't value for money.

    Does anyone know when the next beta weekend will take place? I hope that the stress test they just had didn't count...

    Also kudos to the OP, this thread is very informative

    New person here.

    I just had a few questions, so i thought asking the folks you have probably played the game is best.

    1. How many levels have you covered in total in the beta?

    2. How are the personal stories and cutscenes in your opinion?

    3. How explore is Lion's Arch, and the other cities? You see all these homes and huge places, but just how much of it can you explore?

    Personally, my highest level character was only level 17. Some people in the beta leveled all the way to cap, but there is only content up to level 30 for PvE in the past betas. In total, I've probably accumulated 40-50 levels across all characters.

    2. How are the personal stories and cutscenes in your opinion?
    I found the personal story (Blood Legion Charr) to be quite interesting. It was decent motivation to level outside of just having fun out in the world. The cutscenes need more emoting from the characters, I have no problem with the characters presenting themselves in this very comic "cut out" style, it just needs more expression.

    3. How explore is Lion's Arch, and the other cities? You see all these homes and huge places, but just how much of it can you explore?
    I can't say much about lion's arch, but I can tell you that it is huge. I barely even scratched the surface of what I could have explored on my Charr.

    I did however fully explore the Charr city, the Black Citadel, and it's quite big as well. I can't recall a building I couldn't enter and rarely did something feel like "just scenery". In most cases if it was there, I could explore it.

    fantastic post, i honestly wasnt too sure about GW2 as i havnt looked into it and i didnt play GW1, the main reason i play wow is for the pvp play style (which right about now has been shit for a long time) there's alot of information here that i would have never found or known which woulda ultimately made me not get the game, but i think i am now, i like the idea they are trying to make it less of a grind and everyone is boosted to the same level makes the whole thing worth a try.
