    i was having DL problems then after a but it just started working. i keep re opening it to update. i cant wait for the sylvari ^_^ i love how they are plants. also their areas are so beautiful. it kinda sucks they are wiping our old chars before this beta but then again gives a chance to start new chars an try out new things. i like how GW2 doesnt use the usual human,elf,dwarf,undead races. also i hope the engineer update is used in this beta. i really like using the engineer.

    Well I don't know much about GW lore but aren't the undead pretty much the super bad guys? I mean, as it is right now it seems like all the races are "good" guys in their own way.

    as far as i know the undead were only in part of prophecies and the end part of NF from GW1. i played the necro a bit last beta and it was fun nothing too incredible imo. also idk if it gets better later but in my experience minions suck. they die so fast and do little damage. ranger is the pet class lol

    The undead were just kind of there as a "decoy massive villain" in GW1 prophecies. They're really only as evil as their masters. The only major threat undead villains have been The Lich, who really only used his minions for small scale things and chose to manipulate people instead to further his goals (GW1 Prophecies) and Palawa Joko (GW1 Nightfall), who doesn't really do anything "evil" in GW1 although in between GW1 and GW2 he conquers all of Elona and killed the Sunspears and made many of them part of his army, some willingly and some by force.

    I'd say in GW2 the only true villains we know of so far are POSSIBLY the dragons ( we don't know if they are outright evil, although it is safe to assume they do not give a damn about the other races and the sylvari are basically natures response to the awakening of the dragons), The Flame Legion who were basically the entire reason for the actions of the Charr in GW1 but are now branded as outcasts and untrustworthy in GW2............and they seem to embrace that, and finally the Nightmare Court. The Nightmare Court is a splinter group of Sylvari who worship the dark parts of the "Dream" and seek to bring other sylvari to their side no matter the cost, in fact their goal is to corrupt the Pale Tree itself.

    http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Elder_Dragon

    http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Flame_Legion

    http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Nightmare_Court

    Also, worth noting that the reason female charr were never seen in GW1 is because the Flame Legion view woman as inferior. In fact, the female Charr were the ones that gave the final push that forced the Flame Legion to surrender completely. As a result, female charr are once again considered equal and fight along side the males as the Flame Legion no longer had power over anything.

    also the sons of svanir in GW 2 are what the norn are fighting against. and the asura are fighting against the inquest. then the humans fight against the centaurs.

    Just curious, is playing a different race harder to play with your friends? (i.e I want to be human, he wants to be charr) or will it be easy to see and meet up to play with each other regardless of race?

    any race can go to other race homelands. u just have to find out where your race's land converges with his. in the last bwe i saw a lot of norn in the charr area and a few norn in the human area.

    Lol the cash shop looks like crap.

    Anyone got any fast-paced pvp videos from the beta? I really don't want GW2 to become a generic mmorpg click and press buttons on 1 mob style...... I need interaction and moveability with my character and pull mobs and aoe on them all........ not just kill 1 mob at a time.....


    Thanks if so, I'll might buy it when it comes out :P

    It is rather fast paced in both PvP and PvE. Mobility is crucial to the combat in GW2, more so because of the lack of dedicated healers and tankers, so you can't just sit back and perform 1 simple rotation.

    If you rescue me, I'll be your friend forever.
