Guild Wars 2 - Guild Wars Wiki (GWW)
Wiki for GW2. Pretty good amount of info on the game, which should help those "slow-on-the-uptake" players like myself get started.
Professions | Guild Wars 2
So far (I think it's final by now) there are 8 professions planned for Guild Wars 2. I'm really liking the ranger profession, which has the official description:

The ranger is a jack-of-all-trades and a master of them all as well, relying on his keen eye, steady hand, or the power of nature itself. A master of ranged combat, the ranger is capable of striking unwitting foes from a distance with his bow. With a stable of pets at his command, a ranger can adapt to his opponents' strengths and weaknesses.
Races | Guild Wars 2
GW2 will have 5 races and from the official website it looks like a Norn is a natural choice for a female ranger.

The norn are a race of valiant, shape-changing barbarians. Boisterous, strong-willed, and passionate, the norn are an independent people that swear fealty to no single being. They thrive in their mountain stronghold by the sharpness of their senses, the quickness of their wits, and the strength of their massive forearms. They are guided in this world by their Spirits of the Wild, who embody the virtues of the mightiest beasts. As a people, they are quick to anger, even quicker to smile, and treat each new day as a personal challenge. They drink and feast and hunt with equal gusto, and fear few things. They are steadfast allies and implacable foes.
