A MMORPG game that is constantly fighting against WOW. Though it has only been created a few years ago, thousands of people play every hour. There are 4 game extensions. The 3 current main ones are Prophecies, Nightfall, and Factions. The other one is Eye Of The North, and its for high levelled characters, seeming to be a sequel to prophecies. There are many Proffessions, which are:

Unfortunately, alot of noob's like to play guild wars, so be on the lookout whenever you create a team or whenever you start chatting.

There are also 2 main playing types which are RP and PVP. The difference in RP and PVP in Guild Wars is that RP are characters that start as lvl 1 or 2. They can explore everywhere and have to do missions and fight, also getting elite armor. PVP is for ABing or unlocking skills. You only get main armour and you can only go in PVP areas. You can't do missions or quests and this is mostly used for Allaince Battling, which is a big help to your guild.

Unlike WOW, Guild Wars is very fun to play and you can easily exit out of it anytime except when in a mission. Though, WOW and GW have their good points, none is superior to the other except in opinions.
When your in guild wars alot of people use ingame terms e.g.

Blade: Hey, whats your build?
Kayden: *gives build* sorry man, I'm still unlocking my nec skills so my build sucks.
Blade: Well in the mish your good enough to protect Togo.
Jeffree: Lets meet in GH to AB!Kurz rox! Lux sux.
Kameron: Kay. My friend is a lux tho so try not to say that alot.
MiMi: It's fine. I think im gonna visit isles though while you practice for the AB battle cause I need to choose my guild hall. I'll meet up in a few, good luck against the luxons.
Mimi: We pwn
Jeffree: ugh im going on my war, he has good armour.

Although different in concept to other MMORPGs, Guild Wars has proved to be a creditable and righteous game for people familiar with the genre. Even newbies will find this game all sorts of fun, as it is not hard to learn the basics of the game.
The main jobs available thus far are:

You can combine to have any one as a primary/secondary job and get attributes from both (but only the special attribute of your primary job).
Quests are a lot of fun and the graphics are a delight.

I've been malspending my money playing FFXI, a game in which you payed a monthly fee and you had so much of a hard time getting Gil (FFXI currency) that 90% of the people actually buy it online... This sort of nonsense is not seen in Guild Wars. Get this game if you're a fan of the likes of World of Warcraft.
I've been playing Guild Wars for a month now, it's great!

Like any MMORPG, Guild Wars has features such as an advanced Battle system, PvP, quests, missions, and varying monsters.

Unlike ANY MMORPG, Guild Wars is 100% free, with no monthly fee. And yet, the graphics still blow Blizzard's World of Warcraft totally away. It is definately worth the wait, and will arrive finally at our doors on the 28th of April.
I play Guild Wars online using Arena.net's server. I really like Guild Wars.

A free MMORPG that focuses on Group combat as opposed to solo play. The game contains six classes that range from Warrior to Elementalist (Wizard) The game is based on playing for fun, not leveling to get an uberpowerful charecter. The game is still in beta and will be released April 28th. The game is only playable on special weekends termed beta weekends.
Oh man, the next beta isn't until april....... I'm SO BORED!
Dude, your elementalist ROCKS!
I can't wait to get to Lion's Arch.
I like Old Ascalon Better!
