Seeing from ALOT of threads and such how Anet REALLY needs to split the game skills as nerfing it for PvP is making it even worse for PvE content which i cant understand

Levelling in Factions ensures you hit AT LEAST level 17 by the time you leave noob island. Also, the only titles that absolutely require money are the three consumable titles, which cost ~2m each last time I seriously played (3+ years ago >.>). If anything, your lack of skills on a new account is far more prohibitive than your lack of money. It's better to play through all 3 campaigns and the expansion and then focus on titles.

Interesting, I'm still freaking out a bit. I did the "test" in gw2 account spot, changed my password, and it DID change the password on my orig guild wars account as well, so hopefully this is a sign that they know both of these accounts are mine, and can be linked with HoM when they add it in. Still soooo paranoid though, was a fair amount of work.

Uh oh.... something funky, now the HoM calc dont recognize any of my character names ugghhhhhhhhhhhh

The same way they did with GW1.
They don't HAVE to have the buyshop, it's there because they're aiming higher than they did GW1, not because they need it to keep the lights on.

It doesn't matter. Races are on completely equal footing. There are some racial skills but they are supposed to be balanced towards fun and a little behind the power curve instead of being competitive. I'm not even sure if you can use the racial skills in sPvP.

I like to drop the elixir gun 5 skill which is a aoe of effect regen very early in big fights, ify you noticed I believe I was using elixir B also which gives allies swiftness, might and a small other buff.
On the grenades its really fun but sometimes they are hard to aim. I love the toolbelt skill from using grenades though, it hits like a truck for 1.5k-3k.

Personally its a little overwhelming at first swapping between my main weapon (pistol/shield), elixir gun and then grenades.

The pistol/shield has a great ability is using the number 3 skill for blinding/confusion and the number 2 is pretty beefy damage. The shield throw is a great interuption skill to stop someone from finishing off you're teammate.
Grenades is all around great, number 3 is a excellent AOE blind which makes the opponents next attack miss, the poison grenade does great DoT damage and the aoe chill grenade is pretty fun to use.
Elixir gun is all about support, dropping the number 5 skill is a aoe regen, the number 3 skill also does a poison type attack while removing conditions from allies.

Overall its really fun, the damage isn't as big as I'd like but I provide a lot of boons and control effects to keep the enemy away or blinded.

I have not played Guild Wars and haven't seen any videos of GW2 (my internet is really bad so it would take ages). Could anyone let me know if this game is PvP or PvE oriented? Is it a grindfest?

Basically, I liked WoW TBC (minus the faction reputation farming) and WotLK where there was challenge in PvE and PvP.

Do you need to PvE to have success in PvP? Are there Arena-like tournaments?

After 2 weeks of Cata, WoW is dead for me and if this is a viable alternative, I am willing to give it a shot.

You can play instanced pvp matches as soon as you hit level 1 and do the first quest.. to do world vs world you need to level up, it levels you to the max level but only gives you the skills you have in in the pve side of the game.

The game has a straight leveling curve, it doesn't get harder and longer to level as you progress
