The GW2 PvP scene is going to grow with the new changes to sPvP (spectator mode, revised tourney ticket system), so if you've been interested in that then I think right now is a good time to be playing. As for the PvE endgame, grinding dungeons/fractals and doing dailies for skins/pets is pretty much all there is to do at the moment.
Regardless of what in the game interests you, in the end what keeps me (and many of the others who still regularly play) going is playing and hanging out with friends. Most of the regulars on the Lincoln Force mumble still play the game because we just like hanging out and chatting about inane things while running around the world.
My recommendation though is to go with the Order of Whispers since they're themed to fit your class, but honestly you can just go with any order you like. Each of the orders has a unique story arc, but they all eventually tie back together. They also all have quests where you have to kill a bunch of things, so your best bet is to stock up on vitality gear or use utility skills that give you a bit more survivability.
@xven: This guide is now somewhat outdated as the token prices of dungeon armor have changed, and it also doesn't contain anything about the laurel/fractal gear.
Best/easiest way to get exotic gear sets of the most commonly used stats (AC for power/vitality/toughness, CoF for power/prec/crit dmg) is still to run dungeons. Run fractal dailies (10, 20, etc) for chances to get ascended rings/tokens to redeem for ascended rings, and of course complete regular dailies/monthlies to get laurels to redeem for ascended amulets and rings.
@triple07: The guild has been fairly quiet lately, but with the play-as-you-like nature of the game the active roster fills up for major updates and special events. The core active people in the guild all hang out on the guild mumble (even when we're not playing GW2), so if you want people to listen to and chat/hang out with as you level, join the mumble craziness! Caution: Your sanity and sobriety is not guaranteed to remain during karaoke nights.
If you want help while leveling, class/build advice, nonsense talk about games (or just nonsense talk in general), dungeon partners, just hop on the mumble and say hi!
In a good dungeon group all classes are viable, but obviously some classes are just more versatile and powerful than others in a PvE setting. Unfortunately, since ANet primarily wants to balance around PvP, none of this will probably be changing. Warriors and Guardians are powerful in the current PvE setting, and can carry a group of incompetent pug players through a lot of the explorables. This shouldn't stop you from playing an engineer, necro, ranger, or a mesmer if you find them fun however. Just keep in mind that they're just not as powerful in PvE as the aforementioned classes you're considering.
For now I advise just playing around with the different classes and figure out which class you like the best. Rather than worrying about which class is the most viable at endgame, figure out which class you have the most fun with.
