There are free server transfers for a while after launch so you might be able to join him later. You can play with him across servers whenever you want by "guesting" over to that server. You can do everything buy WvWvW with people on other servers. All of your characters do have to be on one server though.

I think so. I tried to join a full server in a BWE and it eventually dropped back down to high so I could join it. Don't know if that was them raising population caps or just less people playing.

Remember you can switch those out for other professions at any time and you DO NOT lose your progress. So you can do every profession if you want.

EDIT - Does anybody know how we can claim our HoM rewards? I don't have the funny portal stone that they said we should have...
For those players that have linked their Guild Wars accounts and do not see a Portal Stone in their inventory, please try the following to obtain a Portal Stone:

1) In Lion's Arch, head northwest into Hooligan’s Route.
2) At the Undermarket Point of Interest, find the charr karma merchant named Scornheart.
3) View Scornheart’s offerings and, on the second panel, select the Hall of Monuments Portal Stone. The stone is available at no cost.
4) Use the Portal Stone to access the ruins of the Hall of Monuments.

(Haven't tried it myself)

Ya....

Thanks Arenanet for opening up the servers 3 hours early as they said they would (try). I did manage to create 2 classes with 2 names i wanted the most

Got an asian (well....kinda) looking thief, another is an caucasian looking guardian biggrin.gif


Can somebody confirm whether the game is CPU bound? Are there performance review coming out that are specifically (or if they have a detailed section on it at least) about performance impact from CPU changes / overclock?

i left home for work while the computer was installing the new 304.79 driver. If the game is indeed CPU intensive, AND if I come home to find that the performance is still not perfect with the new driver, I just might stop being a lazy brick and actually start OCing my 2500K....

When going from my 4.3ghz OC back to default I seem to drop about 5-7fps or sometimes I will get huge dips down from 80fps to like 56 when looking into the distance. But with the oc it seems to never drop below 75fps in the little test run I did. (I ran around a mountain to test) I have most settings on High @1080p btw.

It took a few seconds and im on an SSD. If you're on a HDD give it a bit longer.

I wasn't able to get into the OCN server Fort w/e. Hopefully I'll be able to move out of where i'm @ and get into a PvP server.

Inner War - Norn Necromancer
Temporary Pain - Charr Warrior
Never Denied - Sylvari Thief (Main)
