I like the idea of a centralized location, even without much to talk about, it's fun to get to know others that are planning on being the same class as you. Even if there are so many different options out there that we don't know about. Plus, if we learn each others mistakes before we even get out of the gate, it'll make the entire playing experience much nicer. I know I made many mistakes in the classes I've made plus the crafting choices I made with those classes. It's fun to get other's ideas and opinions.

Just my take on things
