    I just walked in to Borders one day in early August and asked about the release date. They looked it up, noted that it was not going to be stocked at that store but told me that it was already available to order it through the online Boarders store. I went home, placed my order and it arrived on the 11th of August.

    Mesmers has also been confirmed but the developers, but its just not 'official' yet ^^

    I hope they give a decent amount of chracter customization options, like body, the main reason I didnt make males was they were for the most part fugly beefcakes.

    I imagine it would be fairly involved as most are these days.

    Yeah most of my characters were female. The female armor/costumes are so much more detailed. :p

    I heard necros were confirmed too. Necros and Mesmers are my 2 fav classes from the original so im absolutely stoked!
    N/Me is probably the most original pvp class ive ever played in an MMO.

    It's titles farming that bore the crap out of me.

    GW1 was mainly about pvp, if you didnt have 7 other friends to get serious about GVG i can see why the game wouldve got boring.

    I disagree. I spent most of my time farming in underworld and running missions. Never enjoyed PvP/GvG in Guild Wars.

    Even though i spent about a year with a heavy PvP guild... i spent most of my time farming/help outfitting guild mates for their PvP/GvG/Alliance battles.

    In other news. Goats of Ascalon arrived in a parcel today.

    Time to read!!!!!

    arent they just the same skills as GW1?

    it's just in 3d.

    the minions exploding is just a Death Magic Skill.

    Raising and exploading zombies/ghouls/etc is pretty much a staple of any necro char in any fantasy game. I'm pretty sure a large portion of skills from GW1 will return in some form or another.

    The differences will come in the use of those skills. IE the fact that different minions do different things when raised and different things again when detonated.
