I started a GW2 character a while back, not sure which server. Did not get very far and had to stop playing because of health issues and never got back to it. So to my question. Can I delete that character and start another and be able to pick a new server to play on or is my whole account stuck on the server my first character is on? If I can change servers this way what server is the TR guild on? I looked on the CBE forums but there is no sticky with info about the guild and what server its on.

Guild Wars 2 Official Wiki wrote:Transferring
To transfer to a different world, go to the character selection screen (using F12 or when you first logon) and select the desired world; you will be logged out while the game makes these changes, which might take 5-30 minutes. You can transfer once every seven days at a cost determined by the destination server population.
Medium: 500 Gems
High: 1000 Gems
Very High: 1800 Gems
The transfer fee is only charged if you have characters on your account; in other words, if your account has no characters or you delete all existing characters first, you will be prompted to select a new home world after creating a new character, free of charge.
Guesting allows you to play with friends on other worlds in the same region without paying a fee. To guest in another world, navigate to the World Selection window on character selection. Select the world you wish to guest and then the Guest button next to the Transfer button. The game will ask you to confirm. A symbol will be placed next to the world, indicating you are now guesting in that world. Guesting only applies until your character logs out but you may log in to any world you are eligible to guest on as many times as you wish with no restriction. If you wish to change to a different character, you will have to pick the guest world again. Players may guest in up to two worlds at a time and the guesting period lasts for 24 hours. Once the guesting period expires, you are free to choose to guest in that world or choose a different world. Influence you earn while guesting accrues to your guild on your home world.
There are some restrictions and limitations to guesting. You retain bonuses from your guild based on your home world. Players on North American home worlds cannot guest on European worlds or vice versa. You cannot participate in World versus World for that world, you will be moved back to your home world. You will not receive any Power of the Mists bonuses while guesting. [verification requested] Guesting on worlds that are full or highly populated increases your risk of being put into an overflow map.
There are three situations in which you can play with people in other worlds without guesting to their server. You must be in the same party and everyone must be from the same region (US or EU).
Any overflow shard — right-click on a character's name in the party menu and choose, join in [zone].
Dungeons — to enter the same instance, all five party members must be in the zone that contains the dungeon before entering. This now also applies to the Fractals of the Mists.
Personal stories — with the same restriction as for dungeons.
