I approach it more like an ARPG with MMO trappings and find it pretty damned fun.

A lot of labelled MMO's are like that. Face it the genre and it's players really struggle with "What is a mmo?". To me all I need is multiplayer RPG's. I can take several variations of it and don't hammer myself into a small segment.

The one thing very different though is you don't have to group running DE's to get rewards. That is very different then ARPG's typically, which are small groups running exclusive content.

GW1 to me played much more like a ARPG, it was basically a 3rd person Diablo. FWIW I think Diablo 3 should have been 3rd person and not overhead, being 2012. But when you only release once every 10 years...

Other mmo's that really strike me as ARPG's: Vindictus, C9 or Dragons Nest. They are basically Diablo in a 3rd person perspective and accepting that, they aren't too shabby. C9 being way too easy though.
