Ten Officially Sanctioned Guild Wars 2 Screenshots

As I mentioned in my questions and answers post, I'm not allowed to share my own screenshots of the Guild Wars 2 beta weekend with you folks, so Arenanet and NCsoft provided me with ten official screens vaguely connected to this weekend's experience.

How vaguely connected? The top shot here shows an Asura thief, a race / profession combination that wasn't available to play this past weekend.

Flip through the gallery for the official shots and official descriptions of things I may or may not have officially seen over the past three days.
