Not sure if anyone has a thread elsewhere but I'm in the beta this weekend. It is AWESOME!!! As I know there are several fans of GW1, I will offer in invite to the guild I set up - Shadowline. Contact me via IMs or in game. LordMattson in game. Lord0Mattson on AIM or Lord_mattson on MSN.
The changes to the game are fairly easy to adapt to and its feels so much larger then in the past. The theif is a far more durable version of the assassin. The necromancer doesn't need corpses to be nasty. The norn are awesome to play as. Skills are a lot tighter and its just fun meddling about in the game. I now vanish once more to get food and burn the remainder of my day off.
