The Guardian is such a beast class in GW2.
Extremely powerful support class with tons of DPS if you use the right weapon. The staff is just ridiculous, the giant buff you can give everyone around you with the AOE globe heal and big no cooldown AOE damage for support, and then a 2H greatsword just plain demolishes DPS wise, and then you have your hybird Shield/mace or in my case shield/Scepter, which is awesome.
The game is pretty social with how the questing works, except nobody seems to want to talk to me. I mean like, a few times now I've whispered someone for some reason or another, and nobody replies. It could be because my character name is "Manly Princess" but I don't think that's it, as it has happened on a different character too.
Having a lot of fun with it.
