I realize there are many players who accept this boring grind of leveling as normal, but I am not one of them. It is my opinion that restricting trait unlocks as they now plan to do makes a bad system of character building worse, and I refuse to participate in their new model.
Have you ever played a game with any challenge to it at all? ever? GW2 is the fastest leveling game I've ever played. I got 9 level 80's in the same time that it would take to get one character maybe to max level in older games. Good grief, you ought to find yourself a game where they had out free max level toons at login.
