My wife just bought GW2 for Christmas for us to play! Yes, I know I am lucky. We have another friend that is already playing but he is willing to relocate to join us.
We are older IRL and have been playing games together since DAOC.
We will PVE, but only as a means to an end. We really enjoy PVP and look forward to WvWvW fights as well. We are in Central US time zone and our play will vary greatly depending on the other commitments we have.
Any servers/guild recommendations would be appreciated.
