GW2 needs tutorials like this. There are some elements of the game that are just not intuitive esp. for players from other MMOs.
This is a helpful first step. It's particularly good how they emphasize the need to use dodge (Don't laugh, there's NOTHING in the game that explains the dodge mechanic save in the Heart of the Mists PvP lobby. I've had friends play the game without ever knowing characters could dodge until I explained it to them).
It's also useful how dynamic events as the main way to see content is emphasized. They really should have mentioned big DEs can show up on the mini-map.
Unfortunately, this kind of thing still needs to be in the game not on websites outside of it. In-game information is worth more than all the Youtube vids, gamesite interviews, wiki articles, Twitter tweets, Facebook posts and every other form of out-of-game communication.
Not everyone who plays GW2 may use Twitter. Not everyone who plays GW2 may check the wikis or forums.
Everyone who plays GW2 logs onto the game. Information like what is in this tutorial needs to be presented there first and foremost.
