Update for August 24th: Headstart access tomorrow!
Fri August 24th, 2012
For those of you who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2, headstart access begins August 25th at midnight pacific time (GMT-7:00), instead of the official release date of August 28th. It makes you wonder if this is soft launch really just a pre-release beta disguised as an early launch. But no character data will be wiped before official launch, so this is as good as launch for those of us with headstart access. So enjoy!
Also, feel free to stop by our community forum
and post about your expectations for launch, or how you are planning for your guild to function, or what will be your first goal once in-game!
We can't wait to see you in the world of Tyria. See you tomorrow.

New Chat and Shoutbox!
Mon April 30th, 2012
You can access the chat via the new link on the top navbar, when
you're logged into the forum. You can also use the shoutbox directly
from any page in the forum. The shoutbox is located below the statistics
at the bottom of the page (above the copyright). The new Chat module
has a number of chat rooms available for ad-hoc RP, and a private
channel (not visible from the shoutbox) for community chat. Though not
as responsive as Skype or other chat clients, this could easily be used
for community events and other social interactive needs. Here's a
screenshot of the main chat window.

without having to remember to check back often.
