My friend has been playing this and I decided to buy it just now but shes not available for me to ask her what server shes on. I do know the handle she uses on all her games so is there a way I can search for players to find her character and server?

"Y" and add her to your friends list. When your friend is on, she will show up with a green dot next to her name.

I"m not so sure about the server stuff. I do know my daughter plays on my server and her boyfriend plays on a US server and he managed to get over to our server yesterday so they could game together. (We're all US, I just prefer to game with Europeans, much less annoying than Americans and better at PvP without being jerks about it.)

Ok I just logged into the game for the first time and I see the server select screen. I see what looks like a contacts icon on the top left but I can't click on it before it makes me choose a server. When I choose a server i get a message about it becoming my permanent home so does this mean I wont be able to switch servers without paying after i choose one? Please help :/

Just do it! :D You can convert in-game gold to gems (Which is the currency for buying stuff on the trading store). Don't worry so much, please.

Edit: Oh right, yes you can indeed switch servers later. For gems.

Well I asked on the GW2 forums and apperantly server transfers are currently free so I can just transfer over when she is on. Thanks for the replies though.
