I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure they said exploration is handled similar to how it is in WoW.
Vanquishing sucks ass too.
Who is John Galt?
Been looking through the thread, have to say I'm REALLY excited about Guild Wars 2. It will definitely bring a much-needed fresh breath of air into the Internet, or at least I hope so, because it looks very promising!
As for the races, I must admit it'll be hard to choose. I'm usually a guy who goes for small races, but the Asura race looks a bit... strange to me. I'm no fan of elf-like characters either, so it'll probably be Human, Norn or Charr.
Also, the cool thing about the Asura, is unlike a lot of other games with small races, they aren't disrespectfully treated as comic relief.
They plan to dominate Tyria, and think they're better than other races >
I'd laugh my ass off if Sylvarri weeks was before Asura week.
