I'd say, stick with WoW and see what the future holds because as far as I'm concerned I wasted a good $70-$80 of my money on that game plus the subscription. And then I just came crawling back to WoW anyway so it was rather pointless.
Guild wars 2 is just over the horizon!

It is largely a PvP game as the word is going, and there are no dungeons or instances in the game. Only territory wars.
This is not true. There are instances in Aion, maybe about 30 of them!! Although you cannot enter the first instance until lvl 25. Alot of the game is PvE, as you get to higher levels there is indeed alot of PvP. You are pretty free to choose whether you want to focus on PvP or PvE. Although even doing PvE you will get 'ganked'. This means players of the other race will come and hunt you down. Presently I've only reached lvl 43 out of the max 50. After lvl 40, leveling takes awhile and is done mostly in groups in instances. You cannot level your character by doing PvP because PvP gives you abyss points, which can be used to buy gear which makes your toon especially good at PvP. Another big feature of the PvP is fortress raids which are cool, although there can be so many people you have to turn down the graphics or else lag alot. Overall it's a pretty fun game, I played WOW also and I think it's alot like WOW. Although perhaps my favorite thing about Aion is that you have wings and can fly. Also I should tell you that you cannot fly in every map area, although flying is still an awesome addition for an mmo. An unfortunate thing is that Aion has problems with gold sellers, bots, and accounts getting hacked.
Vittoro- MMOs do tend to demand alot of playing-time in order to get far in the game. IMHO, there are worse things one could do with ones time, but I find if I play the MMO too much then I might neglect other important things to do.
