lol.. sounds exactly like my experience.

No, it didn't get better, played until 40 or so then requested and got refund, which I have to admit was a generous act by Anet.

yeah.. a 2 hour trial would have been nice.

The ranger is the most boring of all, I guess they wanted the ranger to be the typical ranger/hunter from other games. Elemental is meh, all the attunements feel artificial and fabricated. 

I've played the guardian and I don't really understand what he's about. 

In fact I don't understand what the whole combat is about. It's all about boons apparently, boons, debuffs and buffs. And they're all extremely short when applied. 

I think the engineer is a good choice actually, for sake of variety.

 

depends what class you play and what spec you are as combat will be about differn't things for differn't classes/specs

Yes but how much do specs change to your playstyle? And I'm not just talking about which buttons you hit. I've learned that to play the elemental correctly you have to keep switching between attunements to reach full potential. So whatever spec it is you play in, you'll do the same thing but perhaps follow another sequence.

I've been off games for a while. There are a ton of people on here like me, played EQ early 2000s, had a little encounter with WoW. from then on, mmorpgs have been getting worse and worse.. Eve online wasnt too bad, but i never really gave it much of a chance. I might go back to Eve and give it a try actually.

what type of class do you normally play in MMOs might give better idea of what class you may like in GW2

well classtype doesnt really matter to me. sometimes I'm warrior, actually more times than not I usually tank. I also like ranger and magic classes.

 

*edit

I mean so far it has just been quest after quest. I'm not sure why every mmorpg does this now. I spent 30 minutes watering corn and feeding cows in guildwars 2.. partying up to kill certain mobs (without the drive to complete a quest) is something i would look forward to

if you are following another sequence how are you doing the same thing?

yes you are going to push buttons and mobs will die like all games but in how you do it you have a lot of playstyles..

for example most classes are proficient in both melee styles and ranged. Most can do condition or burst, some rely on avoidance some on causing blinds, stuns, dazes and more control playstyle then some rely on more distractions like mesmer.. my mesmer has completely differn't playstyles depending on how i build her and what weapon sets I use, how i use my illusions, what illusions i use and how I'm traited will very much determine how I play my class

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

It's a stellar themepark, if that is what you are looking for.  An increasing number of people are burned out on them and want more.  We're all waiting for some of these new games with more emergent gameplay coming this year and next year.

Honestly, I find LOTRO to be a better themepark because it doesn't feel as contrived and linear  as GW2 feels.

ANet keeps talking about how they want GW2 to feel like a living world, but the more they try, the less it does IMO.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

guardian sounds like a good fit for you, warrior may also be your style as well in this game but i'd definitely try out guardian

It's possible you just actually wasted your $60. Is it becuase of the game? No, it's becuase of your taste and what you like in a game.  Plenty of people like me didn't waste our $60 becuase we find the game fun.  Don't get me wrong, it sucks to waste money on games.  I felt I wasted money on The Secret World, Eve, and Age of Conan but that's how it goes. 

Like others suggested, try other classes and races but I have a feeling if the game didn't even hook you by level 4 it probably isn't going to be  a game you like.  I have a RL friend that didn't make it to level 5, but he is also one of those that calls all MMOs a WoW clone.  I think he even said AoC was a WoW clone, so there you go.  Either way, good luck.

I tried every class and I never did fully enjoy the game. Necromancer almost got me hooked, but it still ended up being the same old dull content.

Different playstyle to me is having different strengths, which comes with different weaknesses.

And they need to be so different that it affects your whole behavior towards players and npc's and world in general.

And those conditions are so short that I can't see how it affects a fight. Perhaps It's to fast paced for me.

which gw2 classes very much has in many ways.. but yes the boons and conditions are somewhat short in duration(can be traited to last a bit longer overall) but as you said the game is very fast paced

It depends on why you don't like it.  If you hate theme parks, then no, it's no going to get better for you.  If you're annoyed that you don't have enough options in combat, then at level 4, you have no skill choices, no weapon switching, no traits, and a bunch of other restrictions, and yes, that does ease up as you get higher level.  While it would be ridiculous to say that you need to get to 80 before you can judge, level 4 is awfully low.

I would say level 10 or 15 is good enough to get a food feel  for what the game is like. thats not a rediculous number to reach and you can probably do it in the first hour or two.

yea 10-15 is good level to judge the combat.. 15 will give you a couple trait points to see how that goes and by then you will have a couple utility skills and weapon swapping at least

The engineer class is quite boring until you get your first utility skills, which come later in the game. Roll another character, if not right away, you can take a break before you do. Its not like you have a subscription running.

If you you aren't really into the game from the start you're best bet is to just walk away, because leveling is as good as it gets.  The game only goes downhill when you reach its non-existent endgame.

So you posted to say it's not your cup of tea.

Okay then, you can't please everyone, that would be very boring. Maybe do a little more research before you buy. In all honesty $60 is not that much, that's dinner and drinks in one evening at that. It's all about perspective.
