    You have at least 3 months until launch so you have enough time to get 30-35/50. There are some very helpful threads in this forum regarding the acquiring of points so check those out.

    Guild Wars 2 is MUCH different then Guild Wars 1. If your going into guild wars 1 expecting anything like Guild Wars 2 is showing you will be disappointed. If you want some cosmetic gear and titles that some people wont have in Guild wars 2 you can do something called HOM. You can get items and such for your guild wars 2 character.

    Great for Tyria lore and HoM at tbe very least. Depending on ur time committments you should be able to get 30 HoM if you follow a good guide.

    Understandable, You could always meet fans here to you know. There is a Guild Recruitment Sticky here also. That's a great way of meeting people. Personally i found it hard to make friends in Guild Wars 1, I found Even with the Alliance system they had it was tough. Best way to know how the community will be is keep reading these forums and Guild wars 2 guru's forums.

    Guild Wars 2 is going to have a community made up of players from a lot of different mmo's because it's bringing something very new to the table.

    What it also says its the finale chapter ib4 gw2, they actually seem to wrap it up, and that tells me we are getting closer (or hoping)

    Hey Kael! =D

    There are still many people playing this game, even though I recon a lot have left it. I for one, consider this one of the better games I've played (although there are some parts I don''t like. But that's life ;D ). Is there a healthy community? Well, I am not so sure about this, as I like to play for myself and kinda ignore the social parts here... Regarding last question, see below.

    It depends on what you mean with "worth it". If you're in for it for the sole purpose of getting the items? Then I would say no!
    ~I'd save that money for the GW2 in-game shop to buy costumes!!! (Yes... I'm that kinda guy)~

    However, if you are interested in the lore and a decent play through and story, I would really suggest it! As mentioned by someone, the GW2 launch is ~~3'ish months away (but I honestly do not know) so I hink time is least of your problems xD. I don't know how much of the GW lore they will weave into GW2. If you're interested in lore only but don't wanna buy the game, I think they have two books (can someone confirm this?) for it. I haven't read them yet, but they're both on the way in the mail here

    I for one, will be playing (and have waited) long time for GW2... I am not often on GW anymore (Had some incidents with my account being compromised that made it so) but if you'd like a play-partner now and then (if you're buying) just throw me a PM.

    About that... I do think the current community is only a portion of what the GW2 will consist off... With the new release of such a hugely anticipated game, I would assume you get both ends of the straw in this subject. I do agree though, getting friends to play with, will definitively (in my case) increase the game play for me =)

    That's what I have to say fr today!


    Oh, one last thing!!!
    STOP! It's hammertime!


    Ok, one very last thing!
