Finally go beta access and this is pretty darn fun: it's definitely shaping up to dethrone DOTA2 as my favourite MOBA.

A valid point, but I think your estimate is way too low. I mean think about; do you really think they will be removing the ONE actual form of tangible build customization for this new profession? They can't even weapon swap so there goes that. Having anything less than ten legends (minimum) is way too restrictive and will only result in endless clone builds. ...

GW2 is designed, from the ground up, to massively limit build customization.
The potential for build variety will most likely be the result of energy management: the same way that the same thief pistol build can be played completely differently based on the skills you waste your initiative on, the same way spending energy will allow you to differently play with your set of skills. Of course, since the skills will be poorly designed and balanced, each legend will have a certain rotation, completely negating build variety, but the potential for it will be there, allowing PvE snowflakes to live out their uniqueness.

I don't get the desire to not get exotics at the very least? I dinged 80 on my thief last night and just bought them mostly exotics. So easy and fast, plus you can get the gold from leveling pretty much.
Exotics are not BiS and if I am not getting BiS, I might as well get the cheapest one that still gets the job done. Well that AND it should look pretty (hence why I sometimes go with rares): I am not an animal. :P

My core lvl gear 80 is zerker masterwork or rares. I don't even bother with exotics, let alone ascended.
Now, since they said that they aren't planning on raising the level cap, I might put some more thought into gear; but I'll see what the situation is once HoT drops. If green/rares end up being sufficient I'll keep on trucking with those: otherwise, I'll go with the cheapest sufficient option.
