The combat system is pretty involved compared to, say, WoW. You can roll to dodge attacks and many skills combo interestingly with others, not just within your own profession (of which there are 8 different ones -- Guild Wars 2's name for classes, by the way). In the PvP environment, positioning, timing and reflexes are just as important as knowledge of the game, your class and so-called skill rotations which makes for an interesting experience. It's fairly balanced but that's an ongoing experiment. ArenaNet (the developers) are still actively working on the game and release patches and new content pretty regularly.
On top of that it has lots of different storylines depending on your race and the choices you make both during character selection and the game. In the end you all work towards defeating the Elder Dragon Zhaitan but much of the earlygame "singleplayer" (which you can play with other people too though) varies heavily.
And it's got a pretty deep crafting system. I never used it (no patience) but a lot of people I know told me that they enjoyed making their own gear, amulets, food, etc.
EDIT: It's also pretty. Prettier than any other MMORPG on the market, I think (on par/better than TERA and The Old Republic doesn't even come close).
As long as what they're selling is not just a straight power-up (IE cash items being far better comparably to default items) or parts of the game that should already be IN the game (IE game modes and such), I'm fine with it. Cosmetic items, side grades, boosts, those are all fine.

Old Republic if you enjoy good interactive dialogue and story in your games like Bioware always has.
Planetside 2 if you're looking for a giant First Person Shooter MMO involving vehicles, bases and a lot of cooperative play with friends usually.
Guild Wars 2 is pretty much an upgraded and friendlier version of WoW, however you do need to pay an initial 60$ for it, however it has no monthly fees.
