Keep it up EvilGeek. If you got time, maybe you could put somewhere there, that the World does take place in a large persistent world and perhaps make a comparison that it is not like the setup in GW1, others may not be aware of this huge difference.

Building and battling Gunpla is merely a hobby. Unlike the Mobile Suit Gundam story, we're not in a state of war, and we don't have to put our lives on the line. It's just played for pleasure. You're absolutely right. But... No, for that very reason people can be enthralled by Gunpla and Gunpla Battle. Because they like it, they can take it seriously. — Ramba Ral

I added a brief paragraph near the very beginning to make that clear :)

I also added links to info from the official blog about the extended experience and links to the Necromancer skill videos.

Not a lot of real news, not surprising as they've been busy with conventions, but I'm hoping we'll get something new soon.

Thanks! I never liked GW1 because of this...well and a few other things. After reading this I have really started looking forward to GW2. I have finally found a game that looks really good and I will purchase! :)

You rock a lot for putting this together.

Some news from New York Comic Con today:
 
Combat:
Eric: We want GW2 combat to live in the moment where
you're constantly monitoring the battlefield and actively adjusting to what's
going on.
 
Dungeons:
Eric: Every dungeon has a unique armor and weapon set. At
the end of a run, you get a token so you can exchange for the exact piece you
want
 
On Professions:
 
Remaining four professions: at least one is a returning
profession, at least one is similar with a different name, and at least one is
new.
 
Auction House:
There will be an auction house. This will have both
in-game and web parts, and will be a really robust and cool feature.

I dont remember hearing this part before, thats interesting, I would expect something like a dervish paragon mix; some one who uses spears but enchants themselves and allies as well. A Paladin like class then?

Hmmm, I'm expecting a return of the mesmer class, so maybe that's the one with the different name?

As for speculations, I also heard people talk a lot about assassin, so with mesmer and assassin, the quota of returning profession and similar profession with a different name could be filled.

 

... we should be expecting another class reveal sometime soon.
