Guild Wars 2 is the only MMO that provides this sandbox style map completion system that I know of and at the same time delivers epic graphics and sceneries.

On a side note, got the new driver and honestly I don't think there's much of a difference..Maybe with reflections set to "terrain and sky"? At around 56-70 fps atm. Wish I could get a stable 60 but IDK if that's asking too much..Never thought an MMO would stress my GTX 680 this much lol.

I'm just not understanding how some of y'all with top end cards are getting the same performance I am with a 560ti.

I miss stealing people's garlic in town and hiding until guards couldn't be called. Then taunting the person I stole from to flag on me so I could kill them with the deadly poisoned newb dagger in my backpack (people never expect the thief to fight back in town). Aww no garlic? You can't cure that poison and now I get all the gear on you. The good old UO days.

People can barely figure out how to play GW2 and it only makes slight (in the grand scheme) changes and people are running around with their pants on their heads confused about how to play their classes. As much as this seems completely the opposite of GW2, I kinda miss that end of the spectrum sometimes. It might just be nostalgia, but there aren't exactly many modern options in this genre right now. Maybe that Arch Age game? People seem excited about that but I haven't done much research on it.

Mortal Online.. It had a pretty rough launch and appears to still be a bugged out mess. Surprised it's still going.

At the end, there was a semi hard champ (underwater) and a rare chest that gave about 4 or so items. Nothing major, but I had fun and it took about 20 minutes.

During the first week of release, upon completion a chest would spawn for everyone that participated, so you'd be literally swimming in a sea of chests, all lootable of course. I filled my bags many times with that.

How does GW2 fit into this? I never played GW1, but have tried almost every MMORPG ever made prior to a year or two ago.

This response may be a bit late, but I'm in the same age bracket as you and I LOVE GW2. I played UO and EQ when they first came out, haven't touched a modern MMO since. WoW is complete filth IMO, as are most modern MMOs. WoW, etc...are great for people with plenty of time on their hands. GW2 is different, it can be completely casual. I play in short spurts, one hour is typical, sometimes I get sucked in by the big events. But generally, its really easy to log out and walk away. The game is great for soloing and those that don't have a ton of time on their hands. At no point does this game feel like a grind to me. I'm level 40 and its taken me a month. I can't comment on PvP, I am waiting to get closer to 80 to test those waters...

Did you change anything in NVIDIA settings or do anything different? What are ur in game settings? I'm desperate here, GW2 is the first game I've been playing with my sig rig and I gotta admit I'm not blown away performance wise..I mean IDK if it's the DX9, or if it's the game's coding, or if I'm doing anything wrong or whatever..Starting to think I have a faulty card or something..:|

+1 for this. Couldn't have said it any better.

Best part of GW2 for people with not a lot of time is the daily achievement. You get a massive chunk of exp for completing the daily requirements. So if you only play an hour a day, you can easily maximize exp in that hour. You'll be 80 in no time after playing like that for a few weeks.

And also there isn't too much difference in gear. The difference between rare and exotic is minimal. No time to grind for exotic gear? Get rare gear instead. And exotic gears are not even that hard to get. You don't need to spend massive amount of time to grind for the best gear to compete.
