So I'm about to start out in GW1 getting HoM decked out for GW2. I've only briefly played GW1 trial before. I've looked around a bit and the guide I'm most likely to follow is: http://dragonseason.com/Home/tabid/5...Monuments.aspx
But now I'm wondering: Do any of you experienced GW1 players have any suggestions on good main/secondary professions, as well as maybe skills I should get. As I've understood it, it's only worth buying the skills in the game you really need to save money for armors later on etc. Do you have any suggestions? The guide says I should start out with Nightfall, then Factions to line up the Phoenix pet leveling so that it's 20 when I get to the Eye of the North expansion. Should I choose Ranger as a main or secondary right away? I'm most likely not going to do much grouping if avoidable. Any suggestions on great solo professions/builds?
Thanks a lot.
