A friend has been trying to convince me to try it, but between servers, factions (they want to go elves, but I prefer the charr/worgen), labour points, crafting to get top gear, ... it sounds too MMO for me to even bother trying it out.

I imagine if I enjoy GW2 for its non-MMO qualities, Archage is probably a bit of an unlikely candidate for me to enjoy?

To be honest, the only stinky MMO part of this game I experienced yet is the god damn questing. And I didn't enjoy that in GW2, either. Labour Points aren't usual for MMOs at all and same goes for crafting for top gear (that's actually the same as in GW2 when you think about it).

I think you will like this game if you like open PvP, free roaming/exploring and crafting/farming (as in getting farms to grow your stuff). If you think that the Heart/DE system is much better than traditional questing then you will probably don't like the leveling experience, although you will get experience for exploring, harvesting and crafting just as in GW2.
In general, I don't really know what you mean by talking about non-MMO qualities of GW2 because it's full of MMO stuff, just more subtile I guess.

What if you destroyed the items from the first part and then found out that in the second part you need them to create a backpack that feeds on Bloodstone Dust?

Wasn't their "remove old players and get new ones on board instead"-approach the one they used from the very beginning when they decided to abandon the GW community? I think the improvements to the first time experience are pretty much in line with this.

Well, that's what all those criers "I get equipment dropped that my class can't use qq" get. I sincerely hope it's not for max level.
