I never played the first GW because it was mainly PVP and I hate that. I just want to PVE and craft. Does this game have enough PVE to sustain our PVE guild?

sure does:) would actually say as of now until PVP is more fleshed out this game has more to offer in PVE than PVP.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Im typically an all PvP player and avoid PvE as much as possible. Like 80-90% PvP and 10-20% PvE, more if possible (like in WAR).

I spent nearly 300 hours in GW2 across all my toons, and was the complete opposite of normal. Spent roughly 80-85% of my time in PvE. Theres plenty to do if you take the time to do everything the game has to offer rather than focusing on just 1 thing (like rushing to 80 as fast as possible) and ignoring the rest.

Sure, there are hundreds of hours of just PvE.

That said, the first expansion wont really hurt at all but my guilds mainly PvE and we still have plenty to do. I do have an 80 thief with like half the gear exoctic and a warrior lvl 38 but I still havnt even done all the dungeons yet.

Plenty of stuff to do but it doesnt really have EQ/WoWs tiered raid gear so getting a geared up character is faster here.

Go for it, great game and if you for some reasons dont agree with that /taste matters after all) you will at least get to see what the buzz is about.

You can level and fully gear by
Doing outdoor pve
Doing crafting
Doing WvW pvp
Doing dungeons

There is also spvp, but that has you automatically leveled and let's you equip pvp gear of your choice for free.

If you do PvE just because you find it fun well GW2 has a lot for you, I mean, i'm 100% full exotics and I haven't done half of the dungeons, there's just so many if you consider each path it's own dungeon. 8 dungeons with a total of  8 story modes and 25 explorable paths. You've also got 100% world completion that you could try to achieve and if you really want to undertake a monumental feat of PvE you can go for you legendary weapon which will take you more than a month to get.

The only thing you need from pvp is 500 badges of honor to buy the gift of battle for the legendary weapons (if you chose to try and get one), even then, you might be able to just buy it on the trade post.

Actually the first GW wasn't mainly pvp.

There was a full fledged pve component which was pretty enjoyable.

 I think you can get those from the jumping puzzles in WvW, you don't even need to PvP for them.

Sustain for how many months? That would be needed to more accuretely give you a decent reply.

This game is a PvE paradise, and I haven't even touched a dungeon yet.  There is so much to do and explore, and the level scaling makes teaming with your friends/guildies super easy.  If you love PvE and fantasy MMOs then you likely won't be bored with this game for some time.

If you want 100% map completion you have to explore the WvWvW zones other than that there are plenty of things to do in PVE.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

I just hit 475 hours played today.

Of that time, I may have spent 2 hours in sPvP and 10 hours in World vs. World. There are still areas of the world I haven't seen and I haven't touched a single dungeon yet. So, yeah, you can just PvE and get hundreds of hours+ of play time.

My current character is level 75 and I only have 40% world completion. There is a good amount of content that isn't accounted for in the world completion metric. That should give you some idea of the depth and breadth of PvE content. My first character to level 80 got there in 135 hours and I now have over 225 hours played time for that toon, almost entirely PvE (99%). I still have places I haven't been with that character and things I haven't done.

This game offers more for PvE players than any MMO since WoW. When you consider the effect that level scaling has on broadening the amount of content that is viable to you as you level and the nature of Dynamic Events, it may actually offer more for PvE players than Vanilla WoW did at launch.

I can agree with above posters. Ended up at level cap kinda by accident with one character, only have done 2 dungeons with him and I sit around 41% of the world explored.

I have other characters that I'm currently working on and even going through areas that my first character have been too, I'm seeing new things each time. I either tag along with guildies/random ppl or venture off solo exploring. Tons of things to do and see in the world.

I haven't really gotten around to crafting much thus far (you even gain xp for that, infact you can just about reach level cap from what I hear), but guildies seem to dig it for what they launched with. I expect even more armor/weapon recipes to hit in future updates.

My guild in particular spends alot of time together in WvW. It's especially fun for us holding out supply camps. There are some issues with WvW atm but I expect them to be ironed out in the months to come. I played the original guild wars and anet was pretty good about fixing stuff.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

If your looking for a PvE experience... GW2 will be a bit disapointing. The leveling experience is about the most substance you get in that field which can get boring (depends on tastes, I got bored on my first toon a bit and after my second I just have 0 motivation to even bother again). Otherwise, the only thing you have to do is farm mobs for money or farm dungeons. Theres really not that much outside the generick standerd 'achievement/exploring/yada yada' deal. Its meant more around PvP for stuff to do so not liking it, its probably not the choice for you unless your really big on the leveling, which depends really if the style they do it is fun to you. For me it was just lack luster but your view might vary. :)

Thanks for all the replies so far. Several of you mentioned WvW, what exactly is that and what does it consist of? Also, a lot of you mention dungeons, are these like instances? Are they level specific? I take it they require a certain sized group?

As an ardent supporter and avid Siege type of PvP player in DAoC and GW2 I have still yet to find myself involved in on anything other then a once a week skirmish setting because I have so much fun in PvE.  All I can say is if you are really into exploration, then GW2 is the game for you.  At this point, 1.5 months later, all I ever do is Dynamic Events and exploring the world.  Doing EbonHawke as we speak.  First time there and its amazing.
