If you are horrible at MMO's then that's good, because Guild Wars is not an MMO. It's also pretty solo centric at this point aside from Factions and the end of GWEN. I suggest getting it if you want something different. It's a good game. It's not about weapons or armor like WoW. It's about getting new skills and abilities and creating and trying out different skill builds with them. I say give it a shot if you're interested. The Trilogy pack is always on sale somewhere and is a hell of a deal. If you pick it up I suggest starting in either Prophecies (the original) or Nightfall as they are much more newbie friendly than Factions is.
The game isn't dead or anything, just it's not as filled as it used to be. A lot of the end game stuff isn't run nearly as much as it used to and the game is slowly losing it's population. I still play it on occasion but most of the big guilds and stuff have evaporated.
And with Guild Wars 2 just on the horizon for late 2010/2011 it really isn't worth it to invest too much time into the original Guild Wars.
