My GW2 runs fine so I am not going to bother but if you get lag it might actually help it run smoother (probably less stuff to process from the DAT file after they cleaned it up over the BWEs)

I'd say optional, my game ran perfect this stress test and I did not repair or reinstall.

Are we going to have to uninstall the beta client to install the live client for headstart?

Nope, you'll just have to keep updating the client you're currently using.

You will not. Just keep it updated and you'll be good to go for launch!

It's hard to say because gw is pretty bad about a seemingly small change being 5k files. But off the top of my head 2 BWE's and a few stress tests, mostly the changes have been small amount of bug fixes and optimization of how the game is processed. The gem shop changed names, there's a few dye changes and the talent point system went to a tiered thing to prevent over powered builds. Honestly though I know there's been more I just can't think of them now

Speaking of smoother gameplay... for nVidia users, there is supposedly a new driver coming out the 15th or 21st that specifically addresses GW2 performance.

Hmm mine seems to be okay... Now I'm thinking I want to reinstall on my desktop though, I can just leave in run overnight. :P

I honestly don't think this actually downloads anything it just seems to reorganize the files in the gw.dat file, at very least I didn't notice any files being downloaded.
