Kinda makes you wonder why there wasn't a single-player mode available. Nothing complicated like transferring SP characters to online servers; just something that would let people play without a ready internet connection.
I actually like this part; it's Single Player when I want it to be, but I can quickly add other players to help on a quest. (or just jump in the arena for a random team battle)
How far have you gotten with your characters? I'm sitting at level 7 with a Ranger/Mesmer, pre-Searing, and about ready to go across the wall, I think. I could've gone yesterday, but I was indulging my powergamer tendencies -- trying (and failing) to find more than two trainers for each profession...
I got my Mesmer/Ranger to 8 before going to the Academy. There should be 3 trainers per profession, as far as I know. There were definitely 3 Rangers and I'm sure I had 3 Mesmers.
-Aidan is by himself far south end of map (Wizards Folly) in a dead end area.
-Master Renke(?) is near a Rezz shrine and an Animal Trainer east of Wizards Folly, but south of Fort Ranik (area name escapes me)
-Final ranger is on a ridgeline south of Fort Ranik immediately east of a large bridge. (if you know where the healing fountain is, it's the 2d bridge when heading towards Ft. Ranik. Fountain is between the two Rangers
-My first one was immediately outside the gate I believe. (near Gwen*)
-Lady Althea is just up the road from the gate next to the ampitheatre
-Vassar(?) is in Foibles Fair outpost at the edge of the snow line, south/southwest of Wizards Folly.
* Gwen unlocks quests if you let her follow you and will occaisionally heal you. You'll see her talk about Mack the bull (talk to Lady Althea) and also apples from Mary Malone (talk to Mary south of Fort Ranik)and I thought there was a third, but I can't think of it now.
