I know it's not quite the same because you don't feel like you're getting the whole scope but... there is a rear view camera bind that can alleviate that "watch your back" lag.

Thinking of trying it my portrait surround setup.
Officially there is no support. Cut scenes tend to get cut in half with bad -vert.

Since the game rewards you for everything you do, there is nothing wrong with farming a certain mob for crafting drops.

I do exactly that, and I never have enough fine mats to get the last 20 levels until the next tier. And I do not consider farming one mob fun.

My fine mats are tough to come by for armorsmithing. I'm actually always stocked up on metals, but I guess that makes sense since you need base metals for a lot of different profs, but most of the fine mats are used in multiple too. I would have no way to level something else that also used those fine mats since I am always out of them.

On the other hand, I have hundreds of discovery recipes and tons of vender available mats for cooking. I'm enjoying leveling cooking and searching the world for rare foods. It just feels much more varried and really shows off the discovery system better IMO.

I have Tailoring and jeweler, and thankfully jeweler doesn't use the fine mats. I have no problem keeping jeweler at my level most of the time I have more gems then I need so I can upgrade them to the next tier of gems.

Got to 36 last night on my Guardian, having a ton of fun with it. Starting using sword + torch. I think that's my new favorite weapon combo for now.

Still having problems receiving mail though. I still haven't gotten 3 items I purchased through the gemstore several days ago and things guildies sent me still have not arrived. I submitted a bug report Saturday. Hope it get's fixed soon. 2 more days will make about a week that my mail has been bugged like this.

So far I'm not really enjoying the main story too much. WoW quest stories were awesome. RO story was kind of funny. FF had some pretty good role playing stories too. So far GW2 story has been putting me to sleep. The quest characters don't have much to say and are lacking the lore that takes me out of the role playing aspects of the game. Overall, I'm finding myself having a hard time accepting the fantasy world in which the game was created. I'm only level 6 so maybe this will fix itself as I play more.
For now, I just need some direction. Took me forever to figure out that I had to hold right click just to walk around. I was trying to use the number keys and avoid the mouse. Looks like I will break out my G13 for this game. Playing as a elementalist if that helps any. Prefer using a two handed staff as I like large spells.
Another question. Skill points. If I have 1 skill under the 7 button can I have another skill under that button as well or is it one or the other? I didn't want to waste any of my limited skill points on skills that I couldn't use together.

your elementalist story reflects the choices you made during the creation process (the diety you follow, hero, piece of armor given to you, etc). the game takes place long after the events of the first game. i do not know if you played any of it, but much of it seems to stem from the first one, building on it this time around.

Skills 1-5 change depending on what weapon is equipped, and i think are general core skills. the utility skills (6-0) do not change based on weapons, but can be changed between battles. you can only have one utility skill per slot at one time. you can get multiple utility skills using your points, but can only hold 4 at one time. skills 6-0 can be switched around, too (skill in 7 can be in slot 6). hope this helps a bit.

This game has loads of lore behind it. There is a game, 3 expansions, and multiple books about the lore. The game really doesn't go back to square one for new players, so I imagine you would be lacking quite a bit of lore if you didn't play the first game. I guess you can fault it a little for that since it really doesn't lend itself well to people who don't know a little about GW already, but maybe some reading on the wiki would help make the world feel more alive for you and fill you in on the backstory.

Break out that G13 and get VERY comfortable with it. I've never heard of anyone playing MMO's without a mouse, and this game makes it even more difficult than previous MMO's since there is so much movement in the combat.

I'm not sure what you are asking about the 7 button. If you put two skills on 7, how would it know which one you want to use when you press 7? One button gets 1 spell, so if you want to use two you have to put them on 7 and 8. You can change what 7 does outside of combat so if you buy a skill and don't like it, you can just flip it out for a different spell. Bascially you get to pick 7, 8, and 9 as any three skills from your skills page and you can change them out as you see fit. 0 can only be an elite skill.

Does anyone else have terrible FPS drops? I can literally go from having 60-90 in some zones to having 30 flat in wvwvw, pretty lame imo considering the video cards I own should be up to the task.

I get that a lot too. Just have to give GW2 some time to sort it out I guess.

Officially there is no support. Cut scenes tend to get cut in half with bad -vert.

I haven't experienced this problem with triple screen, the support in GW2 is excellent (especially compared to some other recently released mmo's), the cut scenes move the characters to the outside screens off of the background but really is looks fine that way. And in normal gaming it runs very very well on triples, my sig rig running max settings 5760x1080 mainly around 50+FPS, drops to mid 30's in large WvWvW battles.
