Let me tell you all about one of the most obvious holes in the Guild Wars 2 PvP armor. No, it’s not the infrequent balance changes. No, it’s not the lack of diverse game modes. No no no, it’s not the lack of communication or support for the PvP modes. Let’s get down to an even more basic level feature than that: I’m talking about simple one-on-one duels. Now please, put down your pitchforks and torches, count backwards from 10, and just give me a chance to make a case for its inclusion. I’ve had this debate dozens of times with friends and foes alike, so I’ll do my best to address the multiple concerns I’ve heard against it. But first, let me tell you why it would be great for Guild Wars 2.

It’s been more than 7 months since Steven touched on PVP and metabattle. He proposed that jumping on the metabattle bandwagon could make you the PvP problem but I’ve been swinging swords on various accounts over recent months and I don’t think PvP really needs a moratorium on metabattle.

Updated in November 2015: Welcome to Guild Wars 2, new players! :) With the exception of the image of Lion’s Arch, this guide is up-to-date. *** After you have created your character, you will be in a short tutorial. This is in an instanced area where switching is not possible yet. Play through it first and defeat the boss at the end. If you bought Guild Wars 2, then you’re ready to switch to whatever area you would like to go once you are out of the tutorial.

All races’ cities are connected with each other through asura portals in Lion’s Arch. So if you want to get to another starter area, you need to go to Lion’s Arch first.
