    MoP wont compete with GW2 because it cant. GW2 is like any other B2P game out there. Deus Ex didnt interfere with my Raiding in WoW, Skyrim didnt, Fable 3 didnt, Witcher 2 didnt. Im going to be purchasing both games and going to enjoy every inch of both.

    I have a quick question: I have seen a lot of videos where classes have a resource that is drained when casting spells/ dodging. I thought they removed all resources and replaced it with only a dodge bar? Are these videos just old?

    Some might still have the energy system that was removed.

    Judging by two elementalist videos from about 10 and 5 months ago, the old one has what looks like a mana bar that is drained when spells are used. But the newer video shows the bar with a dodge icon beside and is not drained when spells are cast. Not sure how much other classes may have changed between videos.

    I think there's a number professions that still have an energy bar now, like the thief's Initiative. Not sure on any others...too many changes lol. My GW2 encyclopedia is getting rusty.

    Initiative is a different thing altogether, what I'm referring to is the blue mana bar I've seen in a few videos. In some videos it is a dodge bar and others its a blue mana bar. I was wondering if this mana bar was removed for all classes or if some still have it.

    All skills have internal cooldowns now to use and some skills are affected by class resources like initiative for the thief and adrenaline for the warrior.

    The Dodge bar has replaced the Energy bar which used to be a bar that kept players from performing too many activities without taking a break. It was a way to keep players from experiencing content too fast and rushing the game. You could buy potions to recover the blue energy bar. The devs relised that this wouldnt sit well with the players and scrapped it in favor of the Dodge bar which only goes down when u dodge and refills slowly. The dodge brings a useful combat tool that can be used in tactical situations like avoiding big incoming attacks.

    My understanding is that yes, it was removed. I'll see if I can find a source for that though.

    Oh, sorry I misread.
    Yes, it's gone I believe it's managed by cooldowns now

    I know I'll be making guild asura only though I'm afraid
    I'm sure you know already, but there won't be separate servers for roleplay or pvp. I'll just join a RP guild as well...and a pvp one. Love the multiple guilds feature.

    Yeah I would like some lore too. I wan't to know if a thief is always a thief (sounds dumb lol) or if I made a thief could I just be a military scout or something? I just don't think it makes sense for a sylvari or a norn to be actual thieves that steal to survive. I am pretty sure races other than humans don't have social classes as well.

    Join the order of whispers That should fulfill all your spying needs. The charr ash legion would work well too.
    I feel like thieves are spies as well...what with the shadowmelding n all.

    I was thinking of joining the order of whispers, they seem way cool. I think the durmand priory fits my characters story more though, they seem cool too but there isn't really much we know about them right now.

    I personally can't wait to run around Tyria on my elementalist discovering ancient tomes for durmand priory I like to think maybe I'll read the wrong one and wake up another elder dragon.

    No, it's not doable without grind.

    You can buy a lot of the stuff to get the points but as a new player you won't have any cash for it, so you will need to grind.
