    Using general movement, I would realistically only be able to reach "V" in the middle of movement/dps/everything else if I went with my thumb (which has the tendency to hit "C" just as often if I try like that).

    I dunno, it might be different for ESDF gamers, but for WASD, that just doesn't work for me.

    Now, stay with me a moment. Do you also put your heals on "E"?

    After reading that I get the feeling that if anything makes this game fail it will be this. Could be similar to Lineage 2.

    Kel, Jigain, you've got it all wrong. Q is heals, E is elite, V is dodge. Of course, v is easy for me since rarely do I actually use my index finger for much while gaming, aside for hitting f for looting :P So using it to dodge works perfectly for me. And my index finger drifts naturally to v unless I'm forcing my fingers to the home row.
    Oh, and alt-{1-3} for utils

    A.Net already intentionally did that. I wouldn't sweat it too much.

    I suspect it's part of the reason why there is next to no downtime on the servers. I'd rather patch occasionally than have weekly 8 hour downtimes.

    Also arenanet fixes bugs quite frequently and fast, so often and update is necessary, somethings do slip past them at time though, but it's getting to a good place now i'd say regarding bugs and such

    Relevant tot the discussion a few pages back on GW2 botting:

    Quote Originally Posted by Colin Johanson
    Hey folks,

    Since it has been a few weeks since we gave an update on this, just wanted to quickly update where we stand. We recently hired an entire new team of people with one mission in mind: operation bot destruction.

    They’ve been getting everything in place to accomplish our goal of making botting, hacking, spamming, and malicious behavior as non-existent as possible in Gw2. In the last few weeks, over 10,000 bot accounts were banned from the game alone. Another area of massive improvement has been in account security, where our two-factor authentication as well as your password changes have led to account thefts dropping to a tiny rate. A vast majority of account thieves use those accounts to run bots and/or perform RMT transactions, so our serious beefing up of account security has led to fewer bots, and most importantly fewer stolen accounts. That being said, we have massive improvements on the way in the next couple of weeks that help us detect, verify, and remove botters.

    What we don’t want to do is have someone report you as botting, we ban the account, the bot appeals, and we have no data to prove they were botting on file so we have to give them the account back. Ensuring we have 100% clear data on bots that’s incredibly easy for our GM team to quickly verify, and when an appeal is submitted verify within seconds if the person was truly botting is our most important goal. We don’t want to ban people who were not botting, and we want to keep the people who are permanently locked out.

    Bottom line: We’re doing ok, but we know we can and need to do much better on this front and are putting massive resources behind ensuring we have a permanent solution to this issue. You’ll see a dramatic improvement in this area in the next few weeks as our remaining detection and bot destruction tools and staff come online.

    We’ll continue to keep updating on this front as we go forward, but rest assured we are aware of issues folks are raising and take them incredibly seriously. From FOV to bots, account restoration to more awesome stuff to do at level 80 we have teams working like mad on all of these fronts.

    Source.

    Depends on what type of progress. If you are looking for power progression then no, it's not for that (level 80 exotics have the same statistical value as a legendary does).

    I'm looking for progression that tells me why I do what I do. When you leveled, you progressed to 80, and almost no matter what you did, you would get XP, so you knew you were doing progress. In level 80, you still get XP, and you still get skill points, but with all zones available to you, and everything else, what are you progressing to? What is it that makes running around the Iron Marches, doing what I want to, not a complete waste of my time, over being in Orr, or doing dungeons?

    Yes, if you want to call it that.

    Nothing. There is a hard cap to character power progression.

    After that it's just personal amusement, accomplishment and vanity.

    Maybe you revisit Iron Marches because the environment is cool, the story/history is interesting, some fun events happen there, you're just out exploring or beating up baddies-- all for it's own sake.

    You can buy cultural weapon skins or save it as part of the ingredients for getting a legendary. I've bought the Centaur and Ebon Vanguard weapons skins with my karma.

    Free world transfers are going to be limited to once per week starting on Nov. 1st. About time.

    We heard your questions about extending the Halloween event for those of you affected by Sandy. Unfortunately we cannot do that, but the reason why we can’t is exciting: We are preparing for our big November update, which will start on November 15, and there will be content that will be in the game prior to that, leading up to the event. But we also want to use this moment to remind you all that your personal safety is much more important than any computer game. If you could be affected by the storm, please listen to the authorities and take every precaution to ensure you and your loved ones are safe. Tyria will still be there once the storm is over.
    Well I'll be damned.

    I bought the condition karma gear for my Thief. I knew I wasn't gonna get a legendary anytime soon and since I WvW I know I would have enough karma again by the time I get all the other pieces needed. I reskinned most of it to Vigil armor, so it doesn't look like a dress.

    Don't want to start a new thread for this, but what's the situation of FoV (Field of View) in the game? Will it be improved like adding a slider for FoV in the options, or is changing the FoV impossible, due to game mechanics, like the UI etc.?
