In Topic: Is GW2 dead now or is it just the forums?

What I miss seeing is things like "show us your collections", "show us your titles", "funniest thing someone said in game", "how's the game treating you today?". You know, all those fun little threads people used to post regularly in. There's nothing to talk about when there's nothing that's fun, exciting, mystical, etc. I don't know, I just don't think GW2 is a lot to talk about.
There are similar threads on the official forums (I haven't been getting involved on reddit) - however, the official forums are also a lot quieter than they were a year or so ago. There's just... not as much to discuss, really.

In Topic: mesmer or elemental more useful mostly in pve?

Both have their advantages. Eles are probably more straightforward in dealing damage and might stacking, but on the other hand, they don't really bring a lot that other classes can't (conjured weapons are often quite appreciated in the current meta, though) and one of their stronger DPS options got nerfed recently. Mesmers, on the other hand, bring more unique stuff to the table, with Time Warp being of particular interest for times when you really want to pump up the DPS of the party as a whole. I don't expect there will be many players who'll turn one down.

If you want to go mesmer, I'd recommend doing so. What's regarded as top-tier can shift, but I don't think anyone considers mesmers to be bottom-tier.

In MMOs and other games with a multiplayer architecture, there is an alternative form of death - when there is content that you'd like to do, but can't due to not being able to get enough other people to do it.

In Topic: Charr legions

Storyline-wise, they don't have any practical effect after the first chapter, apart from which NPCs you have helping you in the second and third chapters.

Basically, it boils down to this (and you'll see this early enough on that it's less of a spoiler than the blurbs of many novels):

The Blood Legion PC focuses on a conflict within their unit.

The Iron Legion PC's story focuses on an invention of theirs.

The Ash Legion PC's storyline is essentially counterterrorism.

The official forums seem to have slowed down a bit as well, although it's hard to specify a cause.

I'm pretty sure player numbers are dropping, albeit hidden by features such as the megaserver... but while it may be dying, it's a slow death, and the megaserver system means that if you're playing at peak times you're probably going to see a decent population regardless. While unfortunately I'd hesitate to recommend anyone to buy in at this stage, if you already have the game, there's no reason not to jump back in.
