You might as well just start over since getting from levels 1-20 is just the beginning of the game and then you have a bunch of questing to do from there to get better gear and skills and such and it'll be a nice little refresher on how to play.

That being said, I've decided to give this another try since I only made it to the second world in Nightfall and quit because my N/A wasn't working out like I wanted it to. I will probably roll a Necro again but maybe try something more conventional... or do the exact same thing again. We'll see.

...on second thought this game is waaaaay too slow compared to GW2.

I suppose you mean combat-wise because everything else is a long and boring chore in GW2.

In a game where combat is all you're really doing, that's huge. Yes, you can farm dungeons and DEs and wander around aimlessly to get 100% exploration but, outside of zergs (which... admittedly do happen a lot,) the regular combat is both fast-paced and engaging. Trying to play the original after this was pretty difficult to the point that I stopped almost immediately.

One of the problems this game has now is that the vast majority of people will never have been exposed to the organised pvp side, and will probably never be. I have it on good authority that it's pretty much just syncers now, bar perhaps a dozen or so, in both gvg and HA.
The combat is definitely not slow at all in gvg, in particular. While it's not the best solution, just downloading one of rawr's mAT videos will show how fast paced it can be, especially if it has the ventrilo session added on.

Guild Wars at it's peak and Guild Wars now are two very different things. The variety of PvP options all sounded pretty fun but by the time I got to it it was just random four on four which was boring since over half of the time everyone says "oh no, they have two monks, resign."

As for PvE, it is definitely slower than GW2 so I don't see the point in trying to start that up again.

4v4 with 2 monks is actually bad and a team with 1 monk should beat them
