    Post Guild Wars 2 Information Thread

    Intro: When I bought GW2 I honestly had no idea if it would run well enough to be playable and I was a little bit worried since it it's not a small investment. I searched BG for related posts and didn't came across much, so I myself posted a new thread. And finally after spending some time with the game, I decided to write this for any new GW2 players who may come here.

    This thread will always be incomplete. I'll add or update things from time to time.

    Account:
    1. You'll need to enter your serial key when you register for the account.
    2. Your email is considered your account name.
    3. No, you can't get rid of the 4 digit number at the end of your display name.
    4. No, you can't change your display name. Whether you like it or not, you're stuck with it, like coc village name.

    Client:
    5. Select carefully where you want to keep the client, the game'll be downloaded there. Be careful that you haven't selected temp folder.
    6. The client will create a .dat file where the downloaded files will be kept (at least, while downloading them).
    7. The client is not registry dependent. You can move it anywhere you like, but be sure to also move the files that have gw2 in the name.
    8. You can start playing when your download reaches somewhere near 39% (it can vary, look for 'playable' meter.)
    9. When you start playing, it does not download in the background.

    Server:
    10. Homeworld (US/EU) selection is important. You can't change it for free and restricted to 1 week per transition.
    11. EU server latency: 350 - 400ms (average)
    12. US server latency: 300ms (average) therefore, US servers are recommended.
    13. You can't join 'Full' servers. Choose from remaining 'Very High' population servers. Lower population is better but see next point.
    14. Avoid regional servers ([FR], [GE], [SP]) if you wish to choose EU homeworld, even if they have lower population.
    15. Forget about WvWvW for now.
    16. Changing homeworld costs 1800 gems. You'll start with 0.
    17. You can 'guest' to other servers, within the selected homeworld. So for US choosers, EU is out of the question and vice-versa.

    Character:
    18. If you have no previous experience with this type of mmos, I recommend warrior profession.
    19. Take your time customizing your character, so you won't regret Later.

    Gameplay:
    20. Don't just start completing quests one after another. Learn to control your character well, specially master dodge.
    21. You're free to customize keys to your liking - in fact, I recommend it.
    22. Double press movement keys for dodge. It's easier than pressing V.
    23. Take time reading tutorial messages that pops up from time to time. The game won't hold your hands, you'll need to learn it.

    Apparently the number of people who bought this game is not very high, and fewer still play the game. In other words, it's not popular enough around here.

    the people who started with WoW, can never really commit to any other mmo. Its like we tried GW, Wild Star, Elder scroll, SWTOR.. but we keep quitting. GW2 is awesome imo.

    Its just [EB]. Not Elite B[a]stard or anything like that.
