Hi, I recently came back to GW after a ~2 year hiatus. Back then I was a heavy PvE player and my plan was to unlock as many skills and items through PvE as I could so that I'd have the freedom to play several different professions in PvP. However, I never got past occasional RAs and ABs. I played a little HA but was limited to shoddy pick-up IWAY or blood spike groups because I was unranked.
Anyways, coming back after being away for so long I've noticed that I'm even more clueless now than I was back then. My long-term goal is to be able to play respectable GvG, but for now I'm just trying to learn all the basic nuances and to-knows about PvP. At the moment I am mostly playing ABs and a few RAs--I find AB a bit more forgiving in terms of your performance affecting the outcome of the match. I also try and watch broadcasted GvG matches occasionally but usually am kind of lost as to what's going on or what I should be looking for.
So now I'm just wondering what things I should participate in to move toward GvG-style PvP..
What area of PvP should I play in after ABs and RAs?
Would you recommend TAs or HA?
How do you begin to get involved in GvG or find a guild willing to let you in?
I can't really think of many more questions although I'm pretty sure there's stuff I'm missing or questions that haven't come to mind, so please just offer any information that may be helpful. Thanks.
