Guild Wars 2 EU Players

Guild Wars 2 is a couple of days from the beginning of the Headstart programme. I know some of us have taken up the mantle on setting up the details of an "official" NA server, but what about the EU players out there?

Here is the current list of EU servers, as per the Guild Wars 2 wiki:

English

  • Aurora Glade
  • Blacktide
  • Desolation
  • Far Shiverpeaks
  • Fissure of Woe
  • Gandara
  • Gunnar's Hold
  • Piken Square
  • Ring of Fire
  • Ruins of Surmia
  • Seafarer's Rest
  • Underworld
  • Vabbi
  • Whiteside Ridge

French

  • Augury Rock
  • Fort Ranik
  • Jade Sea
  • Vizunah Square

German

  • Abaddon's Mouth
  • Drakkar Lake
  • Elona Reach
  • Kodash
  • Riverside

Spanish

  • Baruch Bay

So for those EU players planning on setting their home server on an EU server, where and why? Same goes for the EU players planning to play on NA servers. Also, from what I've read, while there are NA and EU keys, the "region locking" is mainly for account validation. EU players will be able to select NA servers as their home servers and vice versa. EU players will see EU servers first and NA servers second, however.

Lynith has also written a nice "mini-wiki" on Guild Wars 2, which can be found here.
