Fans got plenty of the latter yesterday, thanks to an interview with several of the Guild Wars 2 devs over at Univers Virtuels. It's a great interview full of tantalizing small details about skills, weapons, gameplay, and more. Jotun, for example, can throw their sword and create a "Jotun Sword" environmental effect. The sword becomes fair game, meaning that if you can get to it first, you can attack with it.
That was just one of the many new details. The complete interview is full of little pieces of information like this, and while none of it is quite on the scale of a class reveal or beta date, it's an exciting read for the Guild Wars 2 community.
