Alright, bit the bullet and got the game today. Probably won't have time to play until this weekend, but I joined Tarnished Coast and will try to get into the guild once I can.

Does the game run slow, btw? I was getting 20 fps on my fairly beast work computer (Radeon HD 5850, SSD, 8 Gig RAM, 6 core Xeon @3.33Ghz) and most stuff was set to medium as far as I could tell. Admittedly it was set to 2500x1600 resolution, so that may have something to do with it.

I just hope my home internet connection can handle it. If not, I guess I may have to move.

Btw, anyone have a suggestion on what character/build to play first? I never played the betas, and it's been a LONG time since I last played Guild Wars. From a review I read, it seems a thief with ranged weapons gets lots of fun little tricks in combat.

Are the races typically better suited for one thing or another, or does it not really matter? Ie, is a Charr Thief just as good as an Asura one?


Yup, races are all even. Thieves are fun, but most classes seem about equally viable. I haven't found one that really seems harder than others. Just remember to dodge when you can, hehe.

My laptop and my desktop (when it was working, anyway) both get really good FPS, but I have mega systems, so your mileage may vary. My wife's PC seems to be getting good FPS, and it's a very low-middle range gaming PC. Her stuff is auto-detected though, so I don't know what settings she has. Mine are all maxed.
