Dang. If only I lived in Europe. Looks like a lot of great stuff to watch for.

Hummm, interesting. I like that the different classes use the same weapon different ways. Makes perfect sense that a Ranger and a Warrior would use a great sword from each other, and from the Guardian.

I wonder if Mesmers will get to use Swords for Illusionary Weapon. I really hope so. I loved the concept art from the first game with the mesmers weilding the rapiers.

I have edited the OP. If you haven't visited the GuildWars2 guru link you really really should.

The new trailer is nice. I also like the look of the character creation system. APB's looks to have been better, but it's still good.

It's still missing something though. I'm not quite sure what though...

The character creator isn't finished yet. There are some options not available at the demo.

I know, but APB's, despite being perhaps the greatest disaster in gaming history, had the best character creation engine that I've ever seen.

I didn't see this video on the list, but it's my favorite from the weekend --> http://www.youtube.com/user/wwwWARTOWERde#p/u/7/Stfx0Lk0qQ4

I'm not that big on the Charr, but one thing I saw in there is the inability to reuse the same item. For instance, when he goes to set up his second weapon set, all he can equip is a short sword? Why can he not reuse the shield he's got?

Thanks Light! I had not seen this video linked anywhere.

Looks to be a primary weapon set and a secondary weapon set. Anything put in the secondary slots will replace what is in the primary slot when switching weapons. Don't have anything in the offhand secondary slot and the shield in the primary slot stays where it is when the set is switched.
Right after he puts the short sword in the secondary weapon slot he then switches to that set. He now swings a sword and has the shield.

Game looks absolutely amazing.

My favorite video so far,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0nCHPl_mEU&NR=1

epic dragon battle, outside, that anyone could join. that's what I like to see.

let's hope there are more of these, and the world is more sandbox than GW1.

GW2 will be a Theme Park with Sandbox elements. Dynamic Events will have Sandbox feel to them. And there will be over 1000 different Dynamic Events. The Theme Park feel comes from the Personal Story which are similar to GW1 Missions.
I would say GW2 will be a hybrid with the best elements of both.

This is a much better video of the boss fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1JfSbKjHHI&feature=feedu

Yeah, listened to alot of the dev conversations today. Those dynamic events look/sound great. I liked some of the other videos that showed other ways to make the world more "alive." Really looking forward to it.

Curious to see how the guild dynamics are also in game.
