    When there are large bodies of water in a game, what kind of interaction do players usually get with them? We’re used to simple interactions like swimming on the surface or fishing, but we know the world under the water is just as lively as on land, but many games never show us what beneath the surface. Well step into the next generation of water adventures where Guild Wars 2 is making all the rights moves to bring us down into the deep with unique combat, monsters, cities and races. We’ll show you how the developers have crafted this unique underwater experience.

    Well, what do you guys think? There's a lot to like about underwater combat and exploration in Guild Wars 2, especially with the amount of content being shown already. It may seem weird at first, but swimming is just as natural as walking. If you're not convinced yet, you'll just have to try it out yourselves when beta hits.

    good read ( new here btw ) if you guys want to look into some of the underwater races here is the krait http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Krait They have an interesting culture and even a religion lol

    "The krait are a serpentine, xenophobic, aquatic race that lives along and within the Tarnished Coast, though originally from the Unending Ocean.[1] They are slavers who build shark-guarded, undersea towers, which house their air-breathing slaves which they keep as a food source."

    I can't wait to check that out - and the Krait culture definitely sounds interesting. So do the underwater towers...

    Another cool thing is that your movement speed wont be any slower when swimming underwater i believe, In other games they made you move a lot slower which i highly disliked.
