Guild Wars: Factions - Preview Weekend

Guild Wars: Factions first impressions. Here are my random notes after playing about with Guild Wars: Factions over the weekend. I didn't end up playing for long, as I found out what I needed to know pretty quickly. The ritualist is not at all what I was expecting.
