    Character Slots and vanity items, yes. Later in game patches to add things? No. Expansions? Yes.

    Items? What kind of items? If you're talking XP boosters, crafting skillup boosters, etc, then yes you can buy those. If you're talking anything that can/will give you an advantage in game over someone who really hasn't bought it (omg levelling up cooking), then no. Those will not be charged for, because those types of advantages don't exist.

    You can buy awesome armor skins though, to put ontop of your currently existing gear.

    No monthly subscription. Patches are free. Expansions are not. Dungeons are free. Items are free. Some cosmetic skins cost gems, most do not. Character slots cost gems. Gems can be bought for real money or the in-game currency (copper, silver, gold).

    Hopefully this answers all your questions.

    I'm not completely sold on this game, yet... Is there any way to try it out? Demo, trial etc?

    Unless you have a financial problem give it a go the game is really good especially on a decent pc. That comes from a 6 years wow player addicted to the bone on wow and still active in it.

    Gw 2 isnt Aion etc. Its a magnificent world and game i am having tons of fun so far.

    There are a few rightful QQ threads/posts mainly about some bugs (auction house, instance server bugs - those seem to be fixed today - and guild chat buging out)) but overall the experience is fantastic and the downtime + bugs overall are minimal.Leveling wise the game is 10 X harder then WoW btw. You have to be careful dont over pull, you die in instances etc.

    Havent played to much with the crafting system yet but from a quick look it seems interesting also. You have to discover things you get xp etc.

    Since a friend got the game today, and home server moves are still free I was wondering if you keep your characters if you move, or if you need to start all over again, could anyone enlighten me by giving the answer? =)

    Home server is account based so wherever you move to, all of your characters will be there.

    So, how exactly do I gain access to legendary weapons?

    I was hoping to read through this when I have the chance, as I'm not sold on the game yet and want to increase my understanding of it before I make a decision.

    How accurate is the information in the OP? Have things changed since it was made, or is it still an accurate overview of game features?

    The overview is very accurate. If there's any misinformation, it's down to itty bitty details.

    Most of them will have played gw1 and got only cosmetical armor. I didn't played gw 1 and my armor on my lvl 32 ist that fancy either. But you can alsways dye it and thus give you the imagine of a complete new tier I love to play with the colors to match my inviroment, as I choose a scoundrel characterized toon.

    Hi, i am level 80 and have 42k karma but i can't find a set piece that i want to buy, they all have toughness/viltality, is there a guide or info somewhere showing all the tier karma vendors sell?

    From the 5 or 6 level 80 vendors i have seen selling tier by world bosses none of them have tier with full dps stats, is this just the way of it and i must decide on a set with toughness ertc?

    They will charge for expansions. Full expansions.

    Me and some couple of friends are going to have a lan-party sooner or later, and we was wondering the idea of playing GW2. I played GW1 for a decent amount of time, and I found it quit fun until I started on WoW which blowed my mind.

    Is Guild Wars 2 worth it? Is it worth the time and money? And is it fun with friends? Is it viable for grouping up and pew pew?

    Read the first post of this thread and form your own opinion, rather than relying on the opinions of others. That's my advice.

    This close after launch, this forum is buzzing with people who enjoy the game as well as people who see the game as a threat to their own respective games, who then proceed to spew down furious hatred upon GW2. Chances are, whatever opinion you read (including mine) will be heavily biased and might end up disappointing you if you decide to get/not get the game because of them.

    Well said. And I agree, there's always people who will hate a new MMO, especially one like this, because it takes away their friends and other players from their current MMO's. Read the first post indeed and form your own opinion, because that post has loads of information, it's a very nice post!

    The region you buy it in (USA/Europe) and the region you register it in must match. After you create/register your account/key, you can play on any servers from anywhere, regardless of the region you bought it in or play from. That is, if you buy a US copy, you have to register it from the US region (which, more accurately, is the non-EU region), but you can play on EU servers. Or vice versa.

    I have a few questions myself too.

    If you don't like the first server you chose, can you transfer easily? I don't want to transfer my chars, I can make new ones, but I understood there's this system of a home server so this is what I was asking about, can I set my home server to another server?

    And second, I'm looking for a server that does have some better PvP teams, for those battleground things but also WvsW, as it stands out the server I chose kind of sucks from that aspect unfortunately quite a lot, to the point it's not very enjoyable at all. I'm in Europe. And don't want the top server in WvsW or something I just want one that doesn't suck.
