As anyone that knows me knows, I once was a huge MMO player. Originally, I played a lot of Asheron’s Call and World of Warcraft, but I’ve also dabbled in many of the other online games as well. I had played the original Guild Wars for a few months back when it initially released. And due to my relationship with IGN, I was lucky enough to beta test Guild Wars 2, but I never got too far with either game. Last month, Guild Wars 2 announced that they were going free-to-play in preparation for an upcoming expansion, so I thought I’d download it and take it for a spin.
The game starts off much like every other MMO. I was placed in a starter town, and a bunch of onscreen tool tips held my hand as I ran around the map. I saved some farmers, collected some tools for the workers, and performed other minor tasks. Somewhere around level 5, I ran into a large group of players that happened to be passing through. Brother Drake invited me to join their RP adventure as they trek across the lands.
