PVS GW2: A Guild Wars 2 Introduction for Warcraft Players

Guild Wars 2 VS WoWGood Morning citizens of Azeroth. If you’re here, it’s likely because you are deciding if you should give Guild Wars 2 a try. Good for you, you’re asking the right questions. Let’s start with some of the broad basics that GW2 differs from WoW, then work our way down to the finer points.

Firstly, to get it out of the way, let’s discuss price. World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is $40, plus the monthly subscription of $15 – making it $55 for the month you buy the expansion, or $220 over the course of a year.

PVS WoW: Mists of Pandaria Cinematic Trailer

Mists of Pandaria CinematicIt’s been a few months since we’ve reported on anything relating to World of Warcraft; Mainly because there isn’t enough hours in the day to play every game we’d like. However, with this new Cinematic for Mists of Pandaria I think we need to go back and see what all the commotion is about. I mean Blizzard Truly does an amazing job with the Cinematics, which keeps bringing us back to Azeroth (Even when we know that we shouldn’t).
