    I actually hope this isn't true. I don't mind the storyline continuing, but if you are able to use things in GW2 that you had in any of the toher games, I may not get it. I want it to be stand alone. The reason I don't play GW anymore is because of those add-on packs and GWEN. I didn't get them, and I felt left out / disadvantaged because of it. No way am I getting a game where you really need to have purchased four other things to take full advantage of it.

    You fellas need to check out the Wiki I posted a couple of posts back.
    I think your concerns and questions would be better addressed there.

    http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Guild_Wars_2

    The previously posted link has none of this info, for some reason... so read this, click the links, and get informed. :)

    Ok, Lurk. After reading the last link you posted, I feel much better about GW2.

    I still hope it isn't like Wow, and it appears that it won't be, though some things will be leaning a little that way, apparently. Still, what I see looks good. Looks like it may not be released for another year, however.

    There are alot of features that will be new and some they will carry over.

    I look forward to these.

    Controls

    The control system is going to be significantly changed (in particular mouse movement in the form "click to move" will be removed from the game), however target locking will still function. Guild Wars 2 will introduce a Z-axis to the game which will allow characters to jump over obstacles. Actions which have characters interacting with the environment, such as sliding, climbing trees and swimming will also be introduced.

    Companions

    The system of companions and allies is being reworked. Companions will have customization similar to Heroes. Players will be allowed to bring a single companion with them, who will not take up a party slot and are considered an extension of the character. When a player chooses not to bring a companion, their character will instead be buffed so that they will not be disadvantaged by not bringing a companion.

    This would be sweet.
    Features under consideration

    * Pet stable


    I look forward to this new game.
