    I assume when you say "so that I won't ever get out of practice" you mean keep your mods up to date?
    This is the tale not of the Horde as it exists today, a loose organization of orc,tauren,forsaken,troll, and blood elf, but of the rise of the very first Horde. Its birth, like that of any infant, was marked by blood and pain, and its harsh cries for life meant death to its enemies.

    The elite areas in Aion were pretty clearly marked. The only time died in that game was by other players who were rifting, before they nerfed all of that to hell.

    Actually I have to use archived mods for 1.12, 3.3, and 4.0

    So, no

    I played panda world for like 2 hours @ release last night. Loved it.

    Played WvW in GW2 for about 4 hours solid last night, waiting for Panda release. Loved it.

    Im liking both games. They are different. So I can stomach both. easily.

    I don't remember them being marked, but it's been so long since I've played it, I'll just defer to your knowledge. Maybe I just died thinking I could solo it, and wasn't able to, or something. At any rate, Aion is still the only game I remember going "wtf" at the leveling

    I'm just curious

    What did you do in WvW for 4 hours, that kept you entertained?

    WoWs combat was already to slow for me 2 years ago when I left the game for good and haven't played sense. TO much RNG for its combat and very boring story (my opinion) which has gone to to shit over the years.Guild War 2 has offered me a active combat system that I love and I do not look back at buying it.

    Probably WvWed. It's quite fun.

    Well I mean it was pretty obvious the areas were for groups. I suppose I can see people wandering without noticing. I used to solo some of them on my ranger, took a while but it was doable.

    Only game I remember dying a lot was on my assassin in Age of Conan. Especially in Khitai (kara korum and the environmental debuffs, ugh).

    I like the style of WoW over GW2 even with its older engine.

    I want to love GW2 because it is the superior game in many formats, especially PvP, but the bugs, WvW queues and lag really show how rushed out the door it was.

    I fear even if AN do fix these issues (which they seem in no hurry to do so), they are going to lose a big chunk of their player back to games like WoW due to how little they actually resolved in the first month and the poor impression that would leave.

    I don't think that is such an issue with GW2 due to the payment model.

    I think WoW looks a million times better than GW2, I've always liked the Warcraft art style, and never cared too much for the trying to be realistic Asian looking games' art styles, but that's really a subjective opinion

    Objectively, Guild Wars 2 has better graphics

    I was going to make a post like this, so I'm glad this one is already going. I tried asking in chat if anyone else was having trouble adjusting back to WoW after GW2, but no one responded. I kept trying to hit "f" to loot things or "r" to run. I wanted to double tap dodge when running lol. I even found myself listening to more NPC dialogue because I was expecting it to go somewhere. I chased after an NPC, but it didn't take me to a new quest I didn't hate the xpac though; I really liked the zone and the Asian setting. I like both games, and I wish there was a way to combine them. I really like GW2's version of "questing" and rewarding exploration. I'll be trying out WoW for awhile and then probably come back to GW2 for a little too.

    Absolutely you can. If you aren't dying, you're either never facing mobs higher than your level, or pulling 1 at a time, or simply hiding in DE zergs to get your experience.

    This is true in most MMO's, and it's certainly true here. There's no level gating for quest availability here.. move into the next zone a few levels early and have at it.

    I had the same graphical problems with WoW after playing SWTOR for a couple months.

    After eight years, the graphics on a game will be outdated even with four expansion packs.

    The thing I found hardest to adapt to again, was not being able to press F to loot/interact/mine. Also, dodge.

    Actually I was running around in Iron Reaches last night at level 50 pulling 2 or more level 57 mobs at a time and not taking a single hit while meleeing them down. Lets not pretend like leveling content is any less trivial in one game than the next, especially when you can effectively have 100% avoidance by just using your movement keys.

    Maybe it depends on which Class you play, but as far as Warriors and Rangers go, you can pull like 5 mobs that are all higher level than you, and still never die, as long as you run around in circles

    Sorry, but here are many pro and cons that are comprehensible, but to call gw2 combat faster is way off. o_0 When you call that you can move, have to move on the fly - its the same in wow. When you talk about GCD's, they are even faster in wow. When you talk about that, the most time in gw2 you have to idle autohit afk, either because it would be stupid to waste combo finisher in a good grp without existing combo field or because other abilities do less damage - I really cant understand you.
    When you come from wow to gw2 I would understand a complain about the flat cmobat system, but never about rng, procs or something else.

    GW2 combat system have its position and good arguments, but only in its own world and never in view of the fact of speed or complexity.

    For those of us able to do this, it will seem like an easy game. I enjoy that part as it is dependent on your skill and not a dice roll. Tera is an even easier game due to this kind of mechanic.
