Last Friday, I asked the Massively readers to choose which game I'll be beginning my adventures, and Guild Wars has won with almost 24% of the vote. Now that we have a game chosen, let's move on to character creation, class specialization and initial direction.
In Guild Wars, players get to initially choose what type of character they will be: PvE (Roleplaying) or PvP-only. The PvE characters are played much as your run-of-the-mill RPG character, with level progression, storyline quests and the like, but PvP-only characters are a bit different. They start at max level (20) and are confined to the PvP arenas. Their items and skills are restricted to those previously unlocked on your account through the advancement of a PvE character, or through the purchase of PvP unlock packs on the Guild Wars store.
