Won't be able to hit 30 by tonight, but maybe by next week. 

Clearly.  This is not an issue.  We could always give WvW a shot.  That's a group activity that effectively doesn't have party limits, and might help us determine if we want to stay on Tarnished Coast.

So I had a few meandering thoughts now that we're about 5 days in.

Speaking personally, my goal at this point is to focus my attention entirely on one character so that any time I spend on the game can be focused benefits to one character until at least level 80.  I fully expect I will to roll more characters (I can totally see myself getting a PvP Elementalist if nothing else in the future), but for the time being I don't want to repeat the huge mistake I made in GW1 where my time was spread over so many characters that I got burned out before getting even half way through Prophecies and didn't have a campaign done to show for it for years. That's not to say that I don't think other people playing multiple characters is bad/wrong, it's just I want to avoid it as being a bit of a alt-person got me into trouble in a lot of other games, especially since you needed to roll alts to play with your friends before, and you don't need to here.

On the set of my own goals, I'm more worried about playing with others, helping others, than I am my own rate of progression, so if I'm saying "does anyone want company," I don't mean to imply you need my help, I'm just offering to be social rather than solo focusing on my own stuff to maintain a level advantage or something like that.  That said I completely respect if you are doing something you want to clear on your own.  Speaking for myself, the only content I want to do alone is my personal story content.  I don't even remotely run the risk of having someone else's choices affect my personal story and I don't find watching someone else play through a stage of my story for me particularly interesting either, so unless I end up needing back up I'd rather wait until I'm alone to do those. Otherwise, I welcome any company while working on map clearing.

I am greatly looking forward to dungeon content. I'll be fun to see how the group dynamic plays out when we can't just rely on the map zerg to overcome challenges. I also want to try the sPvP sometime where I have at least one other person with me on vent to coordinate with.

I still think we had bad luck with the WvW.  It reminded me a lot like how Alterac Valley felt the first time I played it.  I was big, confusing, and nothing anyone was doing made sense.  I also don't think our server is going to put the kind of guild support behind this thing to do it right which doesn't help either.  I'm really not sure about staying on Tarnished Coast.

I've got a couple of different alts, but it's mostly to get the names/characters in the system than anything else.  I really enjoyed those particular classes though, so I am looking forward to leveling them at some point -- will try to keep my ranger up with everyone else for group stuff though.

Regarding PvP -- when I first heard about the WvW stuff, I was a little put off because it kind of reminded me of Factions.  But watching the videos that ANet has put up has made me want to try it.  I would kind of like to give it a shot or two with Tarnished Coast to see if we can get our server together, but if people are following an unofficial sort of restriction regarding RP vs PvP, well.........yarg.  Maybe we should move?  I just don't know.

So question, has anyone else had issues in their personal story where after you have some confrontational conversational cutscene (say that 3 times fast), the game throws you back into the world and then spawns the mobs that'll attack you which then auto aggro on you giving you about 2 seconds to figure out what's going on before you're downed? Cause I gotta tell you, this has happened a minimum of 3 times already. It's really fucking frustrating. I have next to zero time to prepare for the battle or even activate abilities before I'm dead. This further complicates things when I have some NPC's helping me cause I'll die, respawn and come back to the battle to find them dead also. Oh boy, now I get to fight a battle where I've been disadvantaged stat wise and where it expected me to have a partner helping me.

O.o  No.  That's never happened to me.  Hell I had one time I did a cutscene and then had to wait for the game to flip over the guy I was talking to into an enemy so I could fight them and had him ignore an attack because he hadn't been flipped yet.

I have had to evade roll pretty quick at the start of a fight to avoid a beat down, but yeah I've not had this problem.   I am starting to wonder if Guardian is an EZMODE as I thought it was or if Human Noble is personal story EZMode because personal story has been more or less easy, and I remember having a much harder time on other classes/stories during the BWEs (though during the BWE's I did the fight fight vs Berselack in the Sylvari with a Thief and using sword/pistol it was COMICALLY easy.  MoFo never hit me he was blinded/dazed that often).

The only personal story issue I've had is I had one where it had two different scripting glitchs that stopped me from being able to finish it (a Vigil quest if you're curious).  Once the foes did stopped spawning so the "Final wave" never showed up and the story never progressed.  The other time one of the NPCs that wasn't supposed to do die didn't get back up after a part of the story so I couldn't talk to them and nothing happened there either.  I'm sure these are simple glitches they'll fix with time though.

Maybe I'll try some more early evading to see if it'll knock a few off of me for aggro. Single or just two guys is no big deal for me. Stuns, vanishes, and what not easily handle them (being a thief I suspected just one or two guys is no big deal). It's just those multi aggro mobs with no warning blow me up. It might be because I'm a theif making this harder. I also might just be doing something wrong. I'll have to play around with some other methods. I don't want to have to rely on people to help me throw my personal story (though I'm certainly not against help).

I will say i've noticed that, in general, getting surprise blown up by large packs of mobs is a thing is this game.  It happens to me too, though it tends to happen in events more so than personal story.  There were some spots in the Asuran zone I was helping Grace with where the amount of Inquest mobs that flood an area suddenly and without warning in some spots was just absurd.  It's become my habit anytime I start losing more than a little health per second for me to Evade Roll and flee first, identify the situation and fight back later.  Anything else against large crowds like that tends to get me killed.
