with the upcoming free weekend I decided to give GW2 a shot and would like to get you to answer some questions. But first a quick intro - I used to play GW1 a lot, went to WoW after that. I have played one of the open beta weekends for GW2 but I kinda went in blind, made a sylvari masmer (used to play a lot of Me/N in GW1 pvp) and had a rough time while playing till 10lvl, after that I mage charr necro and that went a little better, at the end of the beta I did play a little of the asura elementalist and that also didn't really work for me.
Now, once you have learned all that - questions:
1 - Which class would you recommend for me to test during the weekend? I won't have infinite amount of time, maybe 3-4h each day so I guess that is one or two classes I can test out - which ones would you recommend, at this time I would prefer something that kills mobs fast without me being "dead" too much
2 - In terms of story what would you suggest? - I assume story is based on race? So which one in your opinion is interesting? I did sylvari till 10lvl (didn't like the story), a bit of charr and a bit of asura.
3 - During the weekend should I bother with things like crafting? Is there anything to gain from it on such a low levels, or should I just focus on playing and leveling?
Generally this might sound a bit cheesy but I would like relatively easy and fun play through over the weekend and would like your help to achieve just that. If you want me to give you more info about my previous experience, just ask - I'll answer
thanks so much in advance and lets see the suggestions rolling
