i can try yes...hmm lets see...when i get on though there is usually no one really on cause of my schedule but with Guild Wars the game is quite soloable so far...its a weird game like a neverending LDoN...you have the entire zone to yourself, eliminating KSing...and every mob respawns when you zone...some aspects of the game are better then EQ, but you cant compete with 6 years of EQ development if your game just came out, but the game is really neat...ill keep my EQ account open for some months to come and ill stop by every now and then

Blackbane has a twin in GW.

I'm in the exact same situation as Ominox. I am finding GW to be *much* more attuned to my lifestyle than endgame EQ. The arrival of GW has thus finally pushed BB into quasi-retirement. I too will not surrender my account to EBAY, and I suspect I will pop on as BB every now and then because I'll miss everyone in CN. As for flagging, raids, and the never-ending-pursuit of better gear yada yada, I'm basically done.

As an aside, I concur that GW is very different from EQ, and the all-instanced gameworld (outside of cities) takes some getting used to. Also, people who really enjoy crafting might not care for GW since all you can do is harvest raw materials from drops to give to NPCs to make no-drop armor for you. Since BB and I don't craft, no biggie for me. Finally, GW stresses tactics over playtime commitment. People who invest loads of time in the game have a larger palette of skills from which to select for his/her 8 slots (like spell slots) for a mission or PvP battle, can enjoy a wide variety in play styles from session to session, but aren't necessarily that much more UBER overall than a more casual player. Hence, casual players like me can still do very well in Player vs Player via savvy tactics. THerefore, hard core MMORPGers who savor the satisfaction of being the uberest tank or fastest flowing thought character around and are willing to spend the hours farming might not like GW much either.

As for me, when life gives me 45 minutes to log on, I pick up a quest, hire some computer-controlled henchmen to complement my class (if no other player in the vicinity would like to join me on the same quest), and roll out into the wild to rock n roll. If I die, I'm back in town with all my stuff and no xp loss. Works for me.
