Hes talking about post-searing (I think its called that). When you are done with pre-searing which is like a training ground for people who are justing getting used to the game. When you decide to continue on you actually get into the game or more into the story. Then you can have groups up to 4 and then later up to 6.

Kinda hard to explain but once you leave pre-searing you will understand.

It's not really the "real" game..its more of like an advancement into the game. So no need to rush..just take your time and enjoy what you can and just continue on whenever you feel like it

He was referring to Post Searing.

In guild wars there are two phrases 'pre searing' and 'post searing' used to refer to the Ascalon City Region.

You will know what the searing is when it happens, I wont spoil it.

Pre searing is the more solo type area where you run around, do a few quests, and get all your beginners skills. After your ready you talk to Sir Tydus and enter the academy. Shortly afterward the searing occurrs.

Now after that you are now in 'post searing' Ascalon. It is where the true 'Missions' begin. The quests you have done before then are just that, quests. Missions are the actual storyline progression of the game.
