Did you play in the stress test yesterday? I am playing on Tarnished Coast. Our guild(based from the Video Games Open section of the rpg.net forums) is Vagabonds Grifters And Orphans.

Oh, and headstart for prepurchase is August 25, not the 26th. 3AM EST.

As of BWE3, I've tried all the professions. Mesmer was the one I was least interested in, but is easily in the top three of what I am going to play. My least favorite were thief and ranger. A Sylvari Warrior will still be my main.

I did play in the stress test for the full 4 hours. My first taste of GW2. Played a thief and then a Ranger, in the starting area. Mostly I was just running about Divinity something or ever to get used to the mechanics of using a mouse to control movement with.

Not sure what are server our guild will eventually be on. We have 43 that will play, currently, max out at 50 or so.

Your guild sounds a bit familiar but not sure where I heard the name. My guild is The Mistwalkers.

Not sure where you heard the name. We just settled on it last week. I doubt it's from somewhere else. Video Games Open->VGO->Vagabonds Grifters And Orphans. What do you mean using your mouse to move around? WASD and right mouse click to turn?

I rebound move forward to S, and strafing left/right to A/D.

Must have been a different guild. I just thought Vagabond sounded familiar.

I have always used the arrow keys for movement. I never could get used to WASD. And with the right hand on the arrow keys the camera to turn was harder to do because my right hand was already busy with the arrow keys.

Obviously not ideal but it always worked for me. So GW2, my right hand will be on the mouse at all times, including a run macro on one of the mouse buttons. So I was just trying to get used to it since its new to me.

Another stress test tomorrow afternoon. 3pm-7pm EST. I'm at work during this one, so no fun for me.

Headstart has gone pretty well. Biggest issue so far is the Trading Post being down. Hopefully they get it fixed pretty soon. Filled all my character slots on launch, with my main being the last one. Petroc, Level 16 Sylvari Warrior.

I'm interested in how the WvWvW turns out more than anything. Keep me up to date.

I haven't tried sPVP or WvW yet, maybe tonight. So far I have an 8 Ranger, 5 Thief and 2 Engineer. One of my guild mates is like 35 now and I've seen a level 40. I don't understand the point in leveling so fast.

We're on Tarnished Coast, I think that's how ya spell it.
