|My new Asuran Mesmer, Zinjin. The graphics rock!|
To be honest, we have not been to concerned about crafting, skills, who is OP or not, or even loot. We were having a blast and enjoying ourselves. GW2 will now be our "bowling night" activity if you will. This is important to me, to us. My buds and I talk about all sorts of this while playing. Our jobs, families, idiots, sports, or we just do something crazy and enjoy the moment. For example, we use to play devilsaur aggro tag in Ungoro crater and see who could survive longest; we'd easily spend an hour just laughing at how crazy we were being. It was great though because it was a stress outlet, and we all need one. This is why I'm looking forward to playing GW2. It's a moment to put yourself into a story, an adventure. You can be as brave or as cowardly as you want. You can be the king or the pauper. You can be with friends who are geographically separated or you can be alone. Steve put is best, "You can be anything that you wanna be."

Update: Got my new rig and HOLY COW!!! GW2 is gorgeous! I have all the setting maxed out and I still can't get over it. I spent more time looking at water, floating particles, trees, and spell effects. It is wonderful to just takeina game and pace it the way I want to.
Excellent job ANet. Excellent job.
