Love Thy Mini Map
I am sure that you all know what a mini map is, but it is vitally important that you play close attention to the one in Guild Wars 2. You need to learn all the different markings so that at just a glance you know where your buddies. Also you can put a marker on any places you want to go to. Just hold shift and click the map.
You can also draw things on the mini map. I guess you could use this to draw offensive pictures to your friends, but it is also a great way to get messages to each other and work out a strategy.
Call In The Troops
If you find your self in trouble, lost or you want to lead your buddies into the heart of battle then you can let them know exactly where you are by holding ALT and clicking the map. This will let your friends know exactly where you are.
Finding Your Loot
One very frustrating thing can be when you are on a quest that requires you to find multiple items and for the love of god there are just some you cannot find. Well chances are that they are already laying on the ground. If you press the ALT key it will put the names of all the things you can interact with on the screen. Learn this tip very fast as it can save you a ton of time just wandering around.
Leading By Example
Being the leader can be very cool and probably something that you should not jump into right away, but if you do make sure you are leading your friends well. This is a vital thing to learn in tough battles and in multi player. Make sure you let your friends know who they need to be attacking. To do this you just highlight the target you want to kill and then press control-t.
Play With Your Friends
Guild Wars 2 does have a great community, but many people take this stuff real serious so try and organise games with people who are around the same skill level as you or with your real life friends. As you are more likely to have better patience with them.
The last tip I want to give you is to have fun and stick with the game. Guild Wars 2 is tons of fun once you get the hang of it. Let me just ask that when you are great at the game that you take the time to help a noob out here and there.
