I''m not a PVP-oriented player, but the PvE is great. I have one character at level 71 and another one at level 40-something, and I'm loving the possibilities. Each one of them is with a different order of Tyria, and from different races (an Asura and a Sylvari), and the storyline is quite different.
If I had to complain, I'd say that efficiently crafting requires an insane amount of raw materials (which you have to get by killing lots of enemies, mining, cutting down trees or simply buying them in the Black Lion market, which requires that you have enough gold, which requires...)
Anyways, the game is great, very cooperative, most of the players are nice people (right, They revive you for earning xP, but, who cares) and the dynamic events are great. I helped defeat a HUGE undead dragon yesterday, and even when I was only doing support, I got my share of the action. It was great.
