I would recommend to the OP a few things. Nothing to feel forced into doing but goals to achieve.
-Level to 80
-Find a guild that runs dungeons or pvp whatever you prefer
-Save up for a legendary, this is a big goal but something to work towards when you enter in the game at max level.
-Level a crafting profession, they are largely useless unless you want to get ascended gear
I personally just pvp since I'm largely anti-social and have a hard time forming groups to farm gold and fractles.
