Hey your AOE cast tip can be improved.

Go to options and set 'Fast Cast Ground Targetting' to On

Then one button click will place the AOE wherever your mouse is, no need to press twice an easier way is built into the game.

Oh and if you want a serious boost of xp without grinding try this handy tip.

Enemies give you bonus XP depending on how long they've been alive. Kill mobs in areas that people are in all the time and you'll get a standard amount of XP, actively seek out enemies that haven't been killed in a while, non threatening yellows and enemies at the very edges of maps and you can pick up quadruple the xp for each enemy killed easily. In starting zones this can be as much as 40xp a kill, not too shabby at all.

Give it a try you'll be surprised, I doubt you'll look at a deer in the same way once you know they're holding lots of tasty xp.

Good tips, helped out a lot.

Does anyone know how to claim your legacy items if you've tied in your GW 1 account with GW 2's? I can see I have all the titles I gained from GW 1, but I'm not sure how or where to obtain the items.
