I am amazed and what im seeing from guild wars 2. The characters and scenery has made me consider a career in game art/level design(which ever its called haha) Im a senior in high school right now but wanted to know what does it take to have a successful career in this field?

A amazing portfolio and art knolodge to back it up. Before you spend a lot of money (say 60k) or time (say 6+ years doing at least one finished price every day in a sketch book or speed model in zbrush or 3d program of choice ) go take a generalist art class like drawing 101 at your local community college. If you still enjoy it seek career from there. You may find u love the product but hate the process.
