My brother wants this game, but it is sold out online. Is there anywhere I can download the installer on the meantime? I leave my PC on 24/7 downloading and have ran out of things to download lol.

1) Why the low exp. from killing enemies? I seriously get like 2 exp. for everything. Level 80 must be impossible/improbable.
2) What's with the quests that randomly show up that everyone runs to? WTH is going on? I got a bronze medal for leaving my computer to pee?
3) So we don't turn in quests anymore? We just approach a heart, click some stuff, and get sent an embarrassingly low amount of money?
4) If I want to progress in the game, do I just keep following the spinning green blob on my map?

1) killing is not the primary way to earn exp in this game. I think even gathering materials give more exp per node than killing stuff. If you haven't bought a mining pick, a sickle, and an chopping axe already, go do it now. Make sure you have all three with you at all times. If you see a resource node, go get it. The resource nodes are specifically for you; someone else already gathering the resource doesn't make it disappear for you.

Another way of earning exp is by crafting stuff. Pick up two to assist with leveling. You can switch different crafting professions for a small fee from what I hear. The exp you get is pro-rated. Leveling one to max will get you 10 levels. So theoretically if you have unlimited amount of materials, you can level all eight crafts to max and go from 1-80 without ever leaving the city.

2) this game has random/semi-random/set Events that show up. The events are one of the standard ways to earn exp. You get bronze/silver/gold rating depending on how much you participated in the event, which directly affect your exp reward I believe. Sometimes, I just go up to an event, hit a couple mobs, then leave. Some time later, I would get a message saying the event completed/failed, and I get a bronze rating, but still a decent amount of exp. I have seen some people who just camp their character at one of the more popular event areas, and get free exp overnight.

3) Events will automatically grant you exp when it completes/fails. The more static "quests" show up as Hearts on your map, but even for those, you can just complete them without "turning in"; you automatically get exp and rewards when you complete those.

4) green sign is the main story line. Follow it to progress through the story. You can't follow it all the time, because there are level gaps between them. The idea is, you follow the main story for a bit, go do something else, and come back to the main story once you're high leveled enough for the next part. Completing each step in the story does give you a very nice amount of exp.

I'll try to answer these as best as I can as I'm still only level 17.

1) I'm not too sure on this one, maybe it's to get people to do the events and stuff rather than sitting around grinding on mobs
2) Those random "quests" are called Events, every area has a bunch of them and they're really quick and easy and they usually give around 2 bars of experience
3) correct you don't do quests and turn them in, you find hearts and do what are basically errands like kill certain mobs or clear out traps, again doesn't take long and usually nets around 2 bars also
4) the spinning green blob are story quests, so if you want to progress through the story you have to go to those and do what it says

Thank you. One last question:

Will the Gw2Setup.exe download the files needed to my computer and let me choose when to install (like Diablo III) or will that installer basically install the game as it downloads the 13 GB like Battlefield 3 or Steam Games?

Reason I ask is because the computer I will leave on all day to download is a computer dedicated only for downloading. I think it has an Athlon X2 from 4 years ago.

How to pick a server? I just read Darkhaven seems legit, with lots of WvW, but hows everywhere else?

Warriors are AoE monsters if you ball the mob up right. They deal AoE with their standard melee autoattacks, aswell as with several skills on their bars. They also have fairly decent ranged AoE with Longbow.

 

Thief is more oriented toward one on one combat.
