I just got Guild Wars for my birthday and there's a couple questions I'd like to ask.
1- What are the best four characters to make so that you have all of the eight classes, at least primary or secondary? I can adapt my play style to each, what I have a hard time coming up with is which to have as a primary and which to do as a secondary and such, and which pairings would work the best. Right now all I have is a Ranger Monk, the only reason I got monk was so I could resurrect a teammate, otherwise I spend most of my skills towards Beast Mastery. I'm willing to replace him with something else, though.
2- Is it possible to have a one-person guild? Do you get to make your own design for the cape or do you have to pick? I've got a cape design I really want and can't think of anyone I'd want in a guild with me. Maybe if I met people I liked later on I'd invite them, but at the start I'd rather have my own guild. I won't worry much about guilds until I've beaten the game.
3- What should you do an expert salvage on and what should you do normal salvage on and what should you sell instead of salvage? Lately I've been salvaging everything and then selling to the material traders, but keeping some materials for crafting armor.
4- Is there a page that says the easiest place to find X item? Like when you find a collector that wants a certain item, and then which monster(s) drop it and where you can find the easiest place to kill lots of those. For instance, I was killing Moss Spiders for almost an hour and never got a Spider Leg, until I gave up and went to do another quest and found the giant spiders which do drop spider legs.
5- What all kind of pets can you have instead of the original cat? I've seen a few in the arena and was wondering.
