I read explore this explore that.
I'm level 28 and am doing a level appropriate area. I try to explore and found two events. Which consisted of yet another escort mission and a defend the town mission. I've seen them and other events loop now for dozens of times.
I also found a vendor under water which sold the same crap as other vendors. And I found another event underwater which consisted of beating him in a fight. That's it after several hours in one area and killing the same creatures over and over and over and over. Good thing the combat is fun but it's getting to me, since I'm not getting any new weapons skills anymore.
I'm hitting a wall here. I look everywhere but I know I will not find loot in structures and such and the events I find are either escort, kill a boss or defend a town. I don't really care when I find a "hidden" cave or structures since there never is anything to find there anyway. I don't consider finding a hidden cave in itself discovering..this is not 1992. I played Fallout NV and Skyrim.
Like I said I'm getting close to hitting a wall and slowly am less happy to log in, I need some positive words and reassurance there really is stuff to discover (please tell me WHAT) and events will get better..
I have not really an interest in pvp (right now) and stopepd crafting because it drained all my silver.
I'm actually curious what would happen if the centaurs would win an event.
Would we see them slaughtering the civilians?
Would the town be festered by spawning centaurs?
Would there be an event where we must recapture the town?

I triggered three events myself (lvl26) and it is a lot more fun that way. Somehow I feel responsible for the outcome when I triggered it.
Once I had to speak to a NPC to trigger the event, the other two times the NPC approach me.
I don't really like walking around the map seeing events triggered by other people, especially when you see the same 5 going off in a loop.

Yes you can get the materials for free. BUT if you craft those materials you will be making less money then if you did not craft the materails and sold them on thier own. AKA you will make less money when you craft. (at least at low level)

hehe, if you noticed I did not talk down about the combat. In fact I think it is much better then in Skyrim. I'm very impressed with the combat especially since it is an mmo. It is like they combined traditional mmorpg combat (press 1,6,2,4,8,2,4,zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) with a 3th prson action game like Devil may cry (need a controller for this)

I don't know but I doubt it get's any better at level 325 crafting. Here are some thread about the subject with some interesting thoughts and theories.

I was not talking about selling to the vendor, I'm not that far gone.
Generally, crafted items sell for less then the materials needed to craft them (especialy fangs, blood and stuff) on the Trade post. There are several threads about this on here jsut check it out.

Why can't I open doors? Why can't I have loot in cabinets (which I can open)?
Why can't I have NPC's moving their mouth when speaking?
It's 2012. I can play GTA 3 on my phone ffs.

The game is EIGHT years old, what do you want?
Released at the same time as GTA San Andreas it is ANCIENT. We didn't even have ps3 and Xbox360 at that time, people were playing on the ZX Spectrum back then.
No one forced you to spend over a 1000 (Holy shit that much) on a videogame.
I don't get it. Alright the combat is cool but in every other aspect it is far inferior to a single player RPG like Falout NV or Skyrim.
I think it's the idea of playng with other people online in the same world. Not that I interact with them except seeing them run around and occasionaly shoot at the same enemies as me.
If this was a singleplayer RPG it would get extremely low reviews. No world loot. Can't open doors. Can't open cabinets. (One of the things that makes Bethesda (Obsidian) RPG's so good is missing 100%)
A lot of static NPC's. Personal quests cut scenes are laughable, no real story in hearts and events. Speaking with NPC's menu/system is poor. Events repeating in a loop all the time. NPC's dissapearing when you follow them (trying to follow up on events, wasn't that the idea?) NPC's spawning before my eyes all the time.
Two faction NPC's standing 10 meters apart not shooting each other. areas without anything to do but kill NPC's (no loot and missions remember), I really could go on.
They don't even make use of the fact you are in a world with thousands (hundreds) of others. There is no socializing, you just see other people shooting at the same enemies which scale in difficulty anyway. Crafting is a joke to (crating materials cost more then the finished item) so there goes another reason to interact with people.
Still, I'm enjoying the crap hell out of this game, I'm more addicted then when I played Fallout:NV which I consider to be the best game ever made. I don't get WHY though.
Probably the worst Customer Service of all-time

I have not played the other games the OP mentioned but to me GW2 plays like an action game like Devil may cry.
When I play melee I don't even use the targeting system but manually swing my sword at the enemy, which involves aim.
And if I want to do a special move the targetign system is in place to make sure I hit the enemy.
I love it, it's a very nice hybrid which makes use of both systems. And yu can tweak it fairly well in options even.
Then again I'm used to static fighting in mmorpg's when you could stand still and just press 1,4,3,7,etc.
I have no idea what the op is on about. I never lose my target unless I set another one.
I think the combat is extremely well down (almost Devil may cry style) and am having a blast fighting my way through the world. I even started paying attention to the dailies.
I do agree with you having all weapon skills in the beginning with NO unlocks what so ever is stupid. I already want new weapons and new skills and I just started...
NO. I stopped crafting and sold the items instead. I never made so much money then before. Within 5 minutes I had tripled my silver amount.
I tried to keep up my craftt level with my character level. HA. Not only did I loose a shitload of money by not selling the materials but also had to buy extra material. It was bleeding me dry FAST. Plus the dropped weapons (Huntsman) I already had were mostly just as good or better then what I could craft for my level anyway. (huntsman goes in steps of 5, so 5/10/15/20 but dropped weapons can have any level. So your better of buying dropped weapons for your precise character level anyway)
I do not see the point in crafting (at least not now with the prices).
You can buy any weapon for cheap so why craft at all? Not for the xp I hope, that would be silly.
And if you ever want some kind of custom weapon why not order one from a crafter. Expensive but with all the money you saved by not crafting not a problem I'd reckon.
Besides, crafting SUCKS with the discovery system.
I bought some gems to turn into gold to pay for leveling crafting.
Then I noticed leveling is done with discovery.. Which means I have to keep a list with what I need to craft, which components I already have, etc. etc. Plus a whole lot of running between the market and crafting station. AND a LOT of inventory/bank juggling.
So I said fuck that and sold some of my more expensive stuff which was left after leveling Huntsman to 75.
I started with 14 silver because I spend 10 silver on crafting items. After 5 minutes I made 71 silver!!!
Most I ever had was 30 Silver. I know what I'm NOT going to do, and that's crafting!
If I ever want something custom I will ask other crafters to take custom order, great way to meet new people to.
Just made another 23 silver..
I'm level 24 by the way..
So here is a hot tip if you want money.
DON'T CRAFT. Sell your looted and farmed stuff on the TP.
Hit 80 today: Big turnoff on leveling alts in all the same level 25+ zones

I managed to get to from level 15 to 24 on only one 15-25 area. Kessex hills. And I didn't even do all the hearts yet and certainly not all events. I did craft to level 50 though. No story quests, no pvp.
I think it is certainly possible to only do 1 level appopriate zone per character but just make sure you do other things to get xp.
Stop exploring for a while and catch up your level before continuing.

Oh please. Because it is divided in zones everything feels compact and nothing like the OP described. You people should stop spouting nonsence about GW2.
Another game with massive worlds (not much to do though) was SWG.
I actually think they design games these days where there has to be something to do every 20 meters. GW2 is like that. Fallout NV also. I don't mind walking for 5 minutes without discovering something. If you discover to much it all makes it seem meaningless.
I want to feel like an adventurer; when I discovered a structure with a quest in SWG after 10 minutes going in a random direction on my speederbike (probably more distance travelled then from east to west on the whole GW2 map) I felt like I really discovered something no one else had.
I think SWG had to litte to discover for the size of the world but there is a middle ground somewhere.
This is exactly why I stopped playing Wow (after a few weeks)
Crafting COSTS money instead of making it (in general)
BUT in GW2 atleast the crafted weapons/armor are as good as the dropped ones.
So hopefully there will be money to be made once the market settles down and on higher level items.
I just used up a lot of items (scales, blood, etc.) and bought logs etc. from the TP to get to level 50 in crafting. Only to find out the stuff I can craft is to low for my level.. Keeping up crafting level to make gear for your character level seems mighty expensie right now.
I think I'm gonna stop crafting and just buy the gear :(
Plus I have most of the gear I need anyway from drops and otherwise I could buy them with karma points. PLUS for example you can't craft a level 21 bow (only 20/25/30/35/etc.) but they do drop. (with higher stats then a crafted lvl 20 bow)
Right now it seems like WOW unfortunatly and crafting is pointless.
