Honestly, GW2 was fun during leveling, but I stopped playing a week before the rift expansion, and haven't looks back or felt any urge to play gw2, the things I want in a game are not in gw2 and there is just some things in gw2 that actually are a step backwards instead of forwards in today's mmo's (eg- loading screens for every zone).
I am now playing Rift again, and while they still stick to quests and gear progression, Rift does things right that GW2 should have done (eg. event notifications in chat and on the map). I prefer the traditional tank/healer in dungeons raids, I enjoy raids because its a bigger team work effort - GW2 dungeons sounded like they would be fun, but I found I hated them, The new rift dungeons so far are more challenging/fun/rewarding that gw2 dungeons - this is personal preference, I just found gw2 dungeons to be a spam fest of deaths, running about and no real structure to be able to enjoy the bosses mechanics, it feels like most of the bosses in gw2 revolve around dodge.
I am still keeping tab on gw2 but only to see if things change for the better, at this moment however I feel while GW2 has potential to become greater, unless they at least take things like map loading screens away and improve farming/money gain, I am not quite keen on returning. I respect their intention of anti farming, but they are just doing a neopets where they are forcing everyone to rely on being a trading post professional in order to make money, I hate that.
