Why not check it out and see if anything catches you about the state of the game now?

Its completely different (and better IMO) than in the past. Plus if you've been away that long, you have a ton of stuff you could do

The developers don’t have a great track record atm imo, the game has been starving for significant content for years and the player base isn’t too big. I think you’d have more fun just waiting for everyone to hop back on the boat for an xpac so the game will feel fruitful. It’s like playing at the end of a wow xpac rn except its been four years since their last xpac instead of two.

That's the great thing about GW2 though, you can just hop back in at any time. You may want/ need to look at current builds (on metabattle or snowcrows whichever resource you prefer), but even then unless you're trying to hop into fractals/raids/pvp, you'll be fine running whatever you want

The whole "lack of content" argument really doesn't apply to you as you haven't been playing for 5 years. So, you really have a ton that you can do.

Sure you can play in a dying community but why do that now when you can hop on and have better social interactions at the start of a confirmed xpac, like I would assume people play MMOs to play with people and right now the most you’ll get out of gw2 is elitist raid groups or mentally afk meta farmers.

I mean, the community is in no way "dying"... that's literally a meme. Every single MMO ever loses players over time. But yes, you are right that the population waxes and wanes when there is new content/ time between content, and right now we are between content.

If the only people you're interacting with in game are, as you say, "elitist raid groups or mentally afk meta farmers", then it may be time to seek out other people to play along side. You can always look for a guild who completes parts of the game that you enjoy/ that you vibe with. People are always recruiting through reddit/ through the official forums. There are even raid training guilds if you want to raid but feel like the scene is too difficult to break in to as a new raider.
