I'm pretty much expecting them to make it very WoW/Diablo like with high end items and making it gear based. However catering to crybabies, matt's, and others by making all high end items avaliable for purchase. Then to ensure the cash flow contiues expect 'mini-expansions' for say $10 every 2 months or so that introduces better weapons/items then a real expansion once a year offering new areas/skills/classes/story.
Also possibily one or two SF esque pay for updates opening new farming areas, that will be nerfed when the next update comes.
or at the very least, that's what I'd do if I were a company that doesn't care about customer satisfaction due to ignorance and thinking as long as yes man are allowed to talk and all others are silenced that i'm doing a good job.

Anet is making HoM account based now, which mean all title and dedicated weapons and art can be shared togerther at GW2. Is certain GW2 will have new weapons, but neeed atleast 2-4 months of time to unravel the games, so why not prospect to use tormented or destroyer weapons? There great skins. Most pvp players main is pve, i mean comon u telling me pvp can't make pve? seriously i mean is so common sense, and more importantly displaying ur achievement like r3 champion+, r8hero+, and etc..
How do PvP-Only characters record their victory ? Dude i never know guild wars have such feature indicating how many wins or stuff u win? or perhaps u mean Guild?
