Perhaps a wow vs GW comparison. If this is silly, let me know but I was looking through the professions and (having never played a GW game before) would like some comparisons I'm more familiar with. Some of the professions seem to line up very nicely with WoW classes, and some don't. I just wanted to get some knowledgeable input before I settled in on a choice for the beta weekend. I didn't read EVERYTHING on the wiki, but I did look over the profession pages. Is it silly to think of it in terms of tank, dps, and healer? Several seem to possible hybrids
A second questions is what is the character creation process like? What should we know going in? It appears to be
Race > Profession > traits?
Any other wiki pages I should have looked at?
Guardian - tank?
Warrior - like a arms warrior in WoW, dps w/ some defensive
Engineer - Not sure if there is a comparison, but looks like a hybrid dps/healer
Ranger - hunter
Thief - rogue
Elementalist - mage
Mesmer - not sure if there is a comparison
Necromancer - sorta warlock
Still confused on how traits are going to work. Do you select one? Multiple?
