What do you like in Guild Wars 2 and dislike?
x Map Design - I love the fact that they made the game look great visually and made it seem like it has a lot of character, each area looks different than the previous area.
x Dynamic Fighting - Dodging attacks instead of just staying in one spot pressing a few buttons is pretty refreshing and increases the skill cap.
x Community - Honestly, from the limited amount I have played the game so far, the community actually seems nice which is good to see because I've come from WoW which is filled with tools lol.
x PvP - WvW is pretty cool and different.
x Removing the 'holy trinity' - I remember having to wait SO long to find the right mix of healers and Tanks in WoW, at least this allows most players in though there are profession preferences from what I have read which ensures that the DEVS need to make sure your profession is balanced or in a good spot or another profession will be chosen. Rangers from what I have heard suck in terms of damage and there is no point in bringing them over a Warrior. In WoW, if your class had crap DPS you could sometimes to a spec which could be viable or go healer/tank with your class if you were a hybrid. In this it seems if your profession lacks damage, there is nothing you can do about it and you are forced to be mediocre even if you play your class flawlessly where you see a warrior who is average do better than you and offer more to the group.
x Lack of Raids - For me its partly what made WoW special, the raiding environment in a 10/25 man was pretty epic and downing those bosses in big raids was pretty epic.
x The movement - It's something WoW does pretty flawlessly IMO, the movement/animation in this game does not seem as good and sharp.
x The terrible introduction - It does not do a good job of introducing noobs to the game in terms of questing (where to quest) and basic things such as where to go for what, how to sell things etc etc.
x The Story - It seems ridiculously corny in many areas though I have only started the Human Story (level 28 atm). Though I do enjoy the cut scenes and how your decisions impact the story. Also I thought we would be able to see more of Ascalon City apart from the ruined walls. It plays such a big part in the lore so that would have been cool.
BARE in mind, I have just started the game so these views could change in the future.
