    I'd like to see what the Warrior, Guardian and Revant specializations will be. I like Ranger currently, but the nature magic orientation shown as Druid doesn't appeal a lot to me.

    I'm a front line/melee type player. Magic is lame.

    Well that wasn't hard, got me quite hyped.
    Time to start leveling my alts to 80. Really love how smooth it is to take a break from the game and just play when you feel like it, since there is no sub fee.
    Heyoo!

    Hang gliding, collections for legendary precursors and new legendaries, and greatsword necro were my favorite parts. :P I'm so excited. I hope they give us some info on the release date and the price sometime soon.

    I saw a spear.... I SAW A SPEARR ON LAAAAAAAANDDD.

    Man I hope it comes to warrior (or mesmer, but doubtful).

    Not really mounts, hang gliding is a mastery you learn through some kind of challenges. In b4 custom glider wings in the gem store :P


    I'm pretty excited about the new WvW map and mechanics. Was chatting recently with someone that was talking about getting discouraged when they lost their objectives after upgrading them, I said "If you kept the objectives, it would be a whole different game." WvW whole new game with GW2HoT!

    To be honest, what I'm most excited for is the Lore Mastery. In every game I play I'm a huge lore nerd, and this is really the first game to seem to add a progression path for this sort of player. I thought WoW's archaeology was going to be this, but it was a major letdown. I hope GW2 succeeds.

    Sounds pretty nifty. Time to start saving up those Tomes of Knowledge for as fast a levelling of the new prof as possible.

    I almost want to say that thieves get rifles. I saw a thief like character with a rifle in the trailer but it could have been an engineer.

    I think that was a playable build 6 weeks from now for PAX East. I don't think that means a release 6 weeks from now. Hopefully I'm wrong.
