Actually you can play GW2 for free now: Guild Wars 2 Free You can give it a try and see if you like it.
I have a free account in addition to 2 paid accounts. (One from before the Heart of Thorns expansion.) And the Level 80 boost you can just ignore. I still have mine. I prefer leveling up the hard way. 😛 They constantly give exp boosts, so i have huge store of them on both my big accounts and never really use them.
Mesmer is amazing to play. I have a max level one. Great fun.
