Hi GW2 players,
I played and enjoyed GW2 back when it first launched (well, maybe a month or two after launch actually), but haven't logged in for a long long time.
I'd like to check it out again, but I'm not very enthusiastic about going back to my original characters. I can't recall them very well, but I think I had a warrior that got close to the level cap, plus a few others --- thief, guardian, engineer maybe --- in their 20s or 30s. So yeah, it's been so long that I've completely lost any sort of connection to them. Can barely remember the first thing about their playstyle mechanics, or their special stories, or the lore behind the maps and the NPCs etc. No idea what server I was playing on.
So I was considering deleting them all and starting over fresh.
I recall seeing that a lot of stuff is now account-wide, rather than tied to a character .. so this should be manageable, right? I can retain any stuff that I "unlocked" back in the day? Such as inventory space or bank slots or whatever it was called? And all of those cabbages and mint leaves and logs that I collected will still be available to a new character?
If anyone has any tips or suggestions or warnings, I'd appreciate hearing about it.
