How is everyones RAM usage during this game? If I decide to buy this I'm going to have to buy more RAM. This thing is eating up over 2gb of RAM. I've never had this problem with any of my other games but it's definitely an issue.

I went on Anet forums... elementalist section...sounds like people are saying Guardians don't die, thieves do insane spike damage - basically one shoting them, and that warriors are hard to kill and also do a lot of damage as well...basically in between guardian and thief.

lol...balancing an MMO is crazy hard....

People saying Elementalist is the hardest to master and takes the most skill to play correctly. You have to work harder than the other professions. I agree.

I'm still going with the profession that seems the most fun to play...elementalist. I trust Anet will adjust as needed, if not now - later.

I was just playing WvWvW for a few hours on my elementalist and it wasn't that bad. The big thing is just memorizing all of the skills that you have and switching between each of your skill sets. Like depending on how the enemy is set up it's better to use AoE spells (water/fire) but if they are spread out and moving then you should go with air. Pretty much you just got to get comfortable with all of your skills. The big issue is just being able to do enough damage which is definitely tough. Air spikes usually do pretty well in that department.

For the sPvP with an elementalist, one of the best setups was double daggers because of the extremely high mobility, but you had to really play in a hit and run style. Unlike WvW where a staff or scepter setup would work well for the range and AoE, its almost impossible to survive, or reliably hit people in the arenas without a dagger offhand (ride the lightning is basically the best escape skill in the game, 1200 range charge that does not need to be targeted, and moves faster than any of the other charge skills, as well as the fire charge skill that leaves a burning trail, and the air knockback+swiftness to kite melee. Most of the maps have you fighting in close quarters anyways, so skills like the earth dagger skill (can't remember the name, but slot 5, you charge it up and its a point blank AoE that has a larger radius the longer you hold the skill) and all the defensive bubbles and the water self heal in 5 are just too good to give up.

Scepter main hand got fixed with this beta, so it could possibly be a viable alternative, but I haven't put too much time into it yet. Dragons tooth, which was your biggest attack used to not hit moving enemies since there was a 3 second delay and it would land where they were, not where they were going, and you couldn't manually ground target, but now the tooth seems to angle itself automatically to follow your target (partially at least). This makes scepter a possible pvp weapon that does more then just control enemy movement by dropping lots of delayed aoes around them (shatterstone, dragons tooth, the earth one)

It seems like the PvP will be very fun, thats what I spent most of the other betas playing, tried just about every class for a few hours to get a feel of all of them and their possible weapon combinations. Guardian in BWE1 was a lot more ridiculous than it is now. There seems to be 3 base health tiers, Elementalist and Thief have 10.8k health with no vitality gear/traits, putting them at the bottom, Ranger, Mesmer, and Engineer sit at ~17k base health, which means most will have 18-20k depending on rune and amulet choices, Warrior, Necro and Guardian were at 22k base health, with most of their gear having some sort of vitality, putting them at 24-26k health. Guardians got moved down to the second tier in BWE2 though, so they are not longer invincible when they run a staff and scepter+shield setup. In BWE1 a guildy and I were running support guardian+hybrid warrior and we 2v5ed in clocktower and won because the guardian was able to put out so much healing with the elite, on top of the huge survivability the hybrid warrior spec has (two consecutive endure pains for 10s of complete immunity), but BWE2 fixed that by making guardians a viable target instead of being nearly immortal healing tanks when run in a support role. Things are getting balanced, and Anet has had a pretty good track record for PvP skill balance, so I have high hopes for a good competitive game in the future.

Are there any server info that we can find here which is more US base player? Issue with me is the people login only when I'm sleeping. lol I will have a hard time to find a East coast guild in those servers.

Exact same with me, everyone seems to be going to US servers but being from England the time difference means i'll likely be offline when its busy and online when its empty :/

no offense but none of your class balance assessments are any good. a collective of 9 and a half disjointed days where professions worked differently 1/3 of the time is nothing. especially since there's a learning curve and build variety among classes. remember new waves of people in each beta = new waves of the same initial reaction to every adjustment necessary from not having a laundry list of quests to grab when you log in to classes with many different builds.
