wow and guild wars are entirely different styled game.

Its not about gear in GW, its about building and using skills that compliment your skills and your allies skills.

You have hundreds of skills to pick from in guild wars, but can only use so many when you are adventuring, so you need to pick and choose from various ones.

Also Guild wars has a storyline you can follow, one that goes through all the expansions, and its pretty decent.

Wow is checkers, GW is chess, more or less. Both require you to think, but they require you to think differently.

Niether is better than the other, i personally prefered GW when i played it, and i am looking forward to guild wars 2. As it builds upon the first, and they dropped the holy trinity in GW2. Its all about tactics now, instead of how much health you can heal, or how fast you can dps. Every class will be changing their role on the fly as a battle progresses in GW2, one moment a warrior will be attempted to tank, and sudden a fresh wave of attackers come out and start harassing your allies, so you change to your bow and become and aoe nuker to help cut them down, while the elementalist who was doing support debuffing and buffing changes to fire attunement to spread aoe damage. They have dozens upon dozens of skills that compliment each other from different classes. An elementalist can put down a wall of fire to damage enemies running through it, then your allied warrior and run into it and do a whirlwind attack and it will start flinging fireballs out. To be successful in GW2, they are going to require groups to be resourceful and for each person to realize that their are no required roles and they should be changing as the scenario changes along with it. There is no healer class, there is no healer class, there is no tanking class, there is no support class. Each class can do anything based on the skills and weapons they choose to use. An elementalist can become a tank by changing his skills and attunements, A warrior can change from dps dual wielding to disruptor by bringing out his mace and shield allowing him to knock enemies down and stun them.

Wait for GW2 is what i am saying.
