    I was thinking of firing up my account and checking you all out. I haven't bought the new expansion so may just do that and boost to 80. One question, if I delete one of my current characters will that name be immediately available to me on a new character I create on your server? I seem to remember this being possible, but it's been a few years. Thanks!

    I never tried myself but looks like from the wiki that your name is reserved for 24h once deleted:
    • Names are reserved for your account for 24 hours after deleting the character.
    (from here: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Character )

    Also if you plan on getting HoT I would suggest doing it right now since it's currently 50% (which is kinda rare)

    I was able to delete one and re-make immediately, but DON'T DO THAT. Your character will have some birthday packages in the mail, log in, grab those, bank them, THEN delete if you want to.

    Yeah, I've done it before, as soon as you delete the toon, you can turn right around and use the name on the new toon. But yes check for your rewards first :)

    Picking up HoT, and it recommends some items to buy such as living world season 2 for $16. Should I also buy this?

    It gives you the option to earn more tyrian mastery points once you're level 80, which are kind of difficult to come by. If you have the extra 16$ i would say buy it. Plus the story is cool if you're like Zawr and the LORE gives you the wiggles.

    pve wise it doesn't really matter all the classes once you learn them can roll pve. So I'd say play what catches your eye. I also played thru the levels the first time just to learn the game. Used the boost on my 2nd or 3rd toon.

    You can test as many classes as you like at 80 before committing to the level 80 boost. Back in the early days I played a Elementalist and a Necro. I'm thinking of going Thief this time around!

    Grimm I honestly would just go relatively slow at first, actually read stuff and learn the story, all joking about Zawr aside, i really do like it. I also would try and do the dungeons as they come up if I were to do it again. They aren't necessary, but they are fun. If you just want to powerlevel, pick out a level appropriate area and just hammer down on the events. and do world bosses. Great XP that way.
