I've lvl 20's from launch. Started again as new character because I've been away so long I have no idea what is going on. I cant seem to do much with the new classes, but am having a lot of fun with necro, warrior and ele at the moment. Henchman AI is better, not great but better.
I started with nothing, and I still have most of it
I'm not a complete idiot... Some parts are still on backorder.
The Dervish is like the WoW Paladin seal/judge system, done right.
If you avoid the enchantdump skills, you can just treat the enchants as self buffs pretty much. Life also gets much easier once you gain access to : http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Faithful_Intervention It's like having a persistent enchant on you, without the -1 mana regen attached to it. Makes using those "If you are currently enchanted" abilities much easier.
