why do all the 'beginnings' links tell me I'm leaving facebook?

Ah, it's the syntax at the end. If you remove that it works fine.

I'm liking the look of the thief, but then I originally bought Guild Wars for the Assassin class. I'm wondering what a Sylari Thief would be like...

Oh, and who do I need to kill for them to reveal the Mesmer class already?

No worries. I don't have a facebook account so it some times gives problems since it's so integrated into everything.

There was a "?type=flv" on the end of the link that was the problem. I edited your post to get rid of it and it works fine now.

Alrighty np. Thanks for finding out what the problem was. Others might have had the same problem as well.

no worries, glad to help. I'm a mod here too. ;) So, yeah, Sylvari Thief might be fun.

SBX you sound (and look) like Gadd when Livia leaves him for you.

Gadd asked at the final cutscene at no one in particular the end of Finding the Bloodstone something about who he had to kill to get some help.

Scholar - Mesmer
Adventurer - whatever

"We've gone from the most basic professions and gone into the stranger ones; the ones that break our rules," says Eric Flannum. "We've got two more unannounced, and those are quite different in the way that they play."

Ok, this definitely sounds like the Mesmer and probably an Engineer/Golemancer type of class. Which means they'll both probably horribly complex and hard to play, but also breaking all the rules so fun as well. For now I'm going to wait on the random executions for not delivering the Mesmer class already, but that's only because I'm intrigued as to how complex/interesting they're going to be.
