Most of you won't care but I figured I want to share my experiences with the community.
Last month I was totally bored with WoW and wanted something new to play so I went to the GW2 website, knowing little about the game from the previous beta. I saw it was on sale 50 bucks for the 70 bucks value or whatever, so I figured what the hell.
I logged on in GW2, and haven't logged on WoW since. I just love all the choices I have and all the freedoms I have in that game! I was bored and didn't feel like killing stuff so I explored Lion's arch fully did the 3 puzzles and bam got almost 2 levels. The next time I wanted to farm some copper for lvling armorsmithing and walking around the low lvl areas I kept seeing events poping up, figured why not go and kill a few things while I take a break from farming and again while farming bam almost 2 levels.
I love the scaling down levels, I can go exploring different low lvl zones and actually do the quests while exploring and still level. I feel like they designed it very well.
I love the jumping puzzles! I would pay 60 bucks just for expansion with jumping puzzles.
I love how exploring is rewarded (not like WoW, after wall walking was removed).
Most of all I like the community, people seem much friendlier than WoW and asking noobish questions is ok in /map and you don't get trolled as in WoW.
Figured I'd share my first impressions.
