Sounds kinda cool, I am trying to decide if I'll buy it. Honestly though, I love the item hunt/grind and would rather do that than "mine some rocks, or trees".
First - you can play GW2 the way you want it. No need to craft if you don't want to. When I feel nostalgic about D2 I wear a full set of the Pirate (you even yell "Yarr" when you get hit and summon a parrot - but mostly you get 45% MF) and eat some consumables for an extra MF bonus. Then I go farm undead on a beach in the undead lands (highest level). From time to time an event spawns near - usually event = more foes = more loot. You can get valuable stuff this way.
I have a guildmate who spent his first weeks of game trading. He was still low level but made about 60 gold (that's huge) out of playing the market - he really enjoyed it apparently - bought all the mini pets from the gem shop too. Now he started playing his toon.
There are no role players. No healers - technically any class can do all : DPS, healing and CC. For healing you generally should look after yourself - but people will help. As a ranger I have a signet that draws all conditions from my teammates to my pet (poor thing). Engineers can deploy turrets for AoE healing while Guardians use protective banners. And so on.
Did two of the dungeons (lvl 50 and 60) with PuGs - absolutely great experience. Sure we died a bit since we had no idea what was inside - but we managed to find ways to defeat our foes. Once after a TPK we decided to switch our skills to focus on condition removal and interrupts - worked great.
Also - at some point one of the 5 people in the team disconnected. Guess what - he was returned to us on relog and we were able to finish the quest - amazing idea....
To answer some of you questions: the endgame is not PvP - PvP is the "parallel game". Endgame will be dungeon runs and farming resources to craft the "legendary" items. These items are insanely hard to make, yet they are roughly 10% only better than the more accessible "exotic" ones.
In Team PvP - you are automatically maxed level and you can get for free the best items available in the PvE game - obviously, you cannot use them in PvE.
Obviously someone has not played GW2 but I think its you.
World vs world does not level you.
You keep all your items, skills and levels.
If you are going to say a game is bad, you might actually quote factual information from it. WoW troll.
