    I'm stuck between warrior and thief for my main, I always play the warrior/rogue type classes in MMO's, but I know in GW2 they will play nothing like them, so it's a tough choice that will be made during beta.

    That said, my Warrior will be a Charr, and my Thief will be either Human or Sylvari. Sylvari if I can make one look like Caithe.

    Personally I think researching a game too much before it's released makes the game less fun once I actually get to play it, so I really just casually read the overall info without looking at the more detailed class descriptions, and just decide once I see the classes during character creation. You'll usually know if you like the playstyle of a certain class within the first few levels, so it's it's really bad you can always start again. I plan on playing everything anyway.

    Charr Warrior or Charr/Human Guardian. Engineer and Mesmer seem really cool as well.

    Think I'd go with a Warrior primarily though as I've grown rather tired of the "Holy Warrior" archetype after several years as a boring, no-good too-easy-for-its-own-good Paladin in WoW and I want to play something offensive for once. I'm not completely 100 on what exactly the Guardian is, all I know is that it apparently uses defensive magic, has a shield and wears plate, which is very Paladin-like.

    Your Guardian can be offensive or defensive as you like, since you select the weapon for skills and your utilitys.
    With that said, the guardian is better played in groups rather than solo, atleast that's what ImperfectBlock said after playing Warrior/Guardian on demos.

    I don't know what combinations I'll play. I think I might just try them all limited only by the number of slots allowed without having to buy them.
    I'm still thinking about it...

    Charr Warrior, followed by a Sylvari Guardian or an Asura Engineer/Elementalist. No names as of yet, since I'm so terrible with them.

    I...don't think I'll have a main character. This'll probably be the first game where I really go alt-crazy.

    I'll definitely have one character for each profession. I need to see what they'll look like before I can give them a name, but I was thinking something along the lines of:

    Female Norn Warrior
    Male Norn Elementalist
    Female Charr Engineer
    Male Human Thief
    Male Human Ranger
    Fe/Male Asura (I go back and forth on this one a lot) Necromancer
    Female Sylvari Mesmer(?)
    Male Sylvari Guardian

    I'm thinkin' my final roster will probably look something like that. Perhaps I'll choose a "main" out of what I find the most fun when I start, but who knows!

    Thanks a ton for that info; been wondering why the hell PvX was still recommending "By Ural's Hammer!" for damage buffs.

    After that, I'm hoping for some of Balthazar's Bitter, or Dwayna's Draught.

    Yep, you can even win gear from doing minigames like that.

    Foci that look like beer steins like in GW1? That'd be awesome.

    Question here.

    Does anyone know how the PvP armour rewards will work? I know for 5v5 you join in, get up'd to 80 with skills + stats, but when we're rewarded from PvP via cosmetic armour, do we need level 80 to use it, or can we just use it no matter what?

    Since I know some people will only PvP, then sometimes go out to DE's to earn some quick cash etc, so how does this armour work? Since if we can get it at any level, when we're out in PvE it's going to have to have some kind of scaling stats or something as you level.

    I hope someone understands what I actually mean.

    Lyssa's Lager... Melandru's Malt

    Took me way too long to think of those.

    Better than I was getting; Lyssa's Pale was the best I had, sadly.

    ...What about Kormir, though?

    Doesn't really fit, I'm afraid, a keg being a container rather than a specific type. :/
