The GW2 beta is starting very soon. You can run this game on your intel Mac by installing Windows via Bootcamp. Just be sure you read up which version of Windows your MacOS supports. My understanding is that MacOS 6&7 support Windows 7. MacOS5 supports Vista. However I've not verified this 100% See this Apple Bootcamp Article. Guild Wars 2 promises to be an innovative new approach to MMORPGs. The traditional MMORPG trinity of Tank, Healer, Damage roles have been tossed. There are no dedicated tanks or healers. In fact, according to what I've read, the best heal skills are self heals. There is no traditional "Tank-Grabs-Aggro" mechanism in the game. If you are unfamiliar, (Aggro= Aggravate), a character's ability to grab the attention of an in-game character and make it attack you and only you, the Tank, while receiving almost constant healing and support from other party members during the fight. In GW2, Aggro is based on proximity and it is reported that some mobs have unique Aggro A.I.! For example: Healing & Death in GW2- This article provides a strong indication that GW2 is not going to be cookie cutter MMO. I find this very interesting as to how it will actually play out while grouping. Will there be a defacto healer? NO. Self heals are the best.
