I'm curious, what are the events and stuff like? Is it generic kill mobs type stuff or is there a bit more variety? I'm having a hard time imagining someone doing more than the Rift style crap but would love to hear if ANet went any further creatively in quest design.

There's sort of 2-3 in an area... and 1 is "dynamic".

When you go to a heart shaped area, there's an NPC that needs something done. It usually involves 2 or 3 optional things to complete. Like one of the starter areas for the Norn, you can either get fish out of a fish trap and feed the bear cubs, disable bear traps that appear in the area, or kill off mobs that are hunting the bears in the area.

As you are working on that... a dynamic event may trigger where tons of these humanoid mobs try to invade, and you have to help defend the bears. (To give a bit of background, when you start a Norn Character, there are 4 animals that are revered, Raven, Bear, Wolf, and Snow Leopard... so 4 of the heart areas in the starter zone involve those as part of the Norn Lore).

A heart Area, is just a location on the map. when you complete "helping out" the NPC in that area, the heart becomes solid on the map.

Now, some of the areas have 2 states for the dynamic event. The invading mobs have already taken over, and you need to clear them out to get things back to normal... or things are normal and the invading mobs are about to attack when the event starts. A combination of the amount of people in the area and sometimes doing the "heart area" quest triggers the dynamic event. It kind of depends on the area. Not super different from each other... but the triggers are subtly different.

The cool thing is that it's all pure coop. No forming a group... just participate. No kill stealing... no ninja looting (yes, there is looting the dead mobs)... people helping each other out by reviving them / rezzing them (everyone can rez), and the rewards for the event are automatically doled out to everyone at the end of the event, depending on your participation level... (Gold, Silver, Bronze) which gives EXP, Karma, and Gold (The latter two being currency).
