There WAS one right? I've never played Guild Wars 1 and I have relative experience with some MMO type games and I've played Diablo 3 a lot when it came out. Yet a lot of the mechanics, menus and whatnot in Guild Wars 2 seem completely alien and strange to me.
The combat, while heralded as a great mix of action and MMO baffled me. Do you still have to target things with a mouse? When I'm near an enemy or something is attacking me it seems to be a dice roll at this point if I attack just once or if my guy will revert to auto attacking. Sometimes he doesn even aim at the enemy who's standing directly behind me. After I think 2 hours of gameplay I realized that each type of weapon has it's own skillset. Imagine my surprise as I switched from a single hammer on my guardian to a two handed longsword and started hitting 2 for my healing aura strike and my guy just stood there.
I'm sure with time I'll get used to everything but so far it hasn't been extremely noobie friendly despite all the tool tips that pop up everywhere.
