I get my daily for PvE in WvW, so it may as well be a WvW daily.
There was some mention of a “WvW progression path” in one of the dev’s blog post. Not many details however. But still, why do you feel the need to do the dailies? The rewards aren’t that useful if you only ever do WvW.
I feel the need to do the daily for laurels to get the ascended gear that as far as I can tell is better than level 80 exotic gear. As it is, the likelyhood of me getting ascended rings is slim and none since I don’t have a single character (out of 6 80’s) that can go above fractal 3. I just am not into that content, I have done fotm a few times but it isn’t what I like personally.
Really, I wouldn’t care a lick about ascended gear if people couldn’t come into WvW with it on. However, I’m a realist, Anet isn’t going to suddenly stop ascended gear production, they aren’t likely to remove it from WvW use. If anything, there will be full suits of it at some future point and when the time comes that I am losing to people based on stats and gear and nothing that has to do with skill it will kill this game for me.
Otherwise, yes they have mentioned (ambiguously) some sort of WvW progression path and I, and my guildies, are waiting in anticipation, hoping for good news.
@Rising Dusk – While I could do the daily in WvW so long as it doesn’t include crafting now, I would still choose to do resource collection on the PvE side of the house because I need T6 mats in abundance.
You can still do your daily even if it does have crafting. Go to your borderlands and refine 10 ingots or something and you have it done. The only thing you legit cannot do is the “Visit a Laurel Merchant” achievement, which just requires you step into any of the cities for a hot minute.
That said, February is supposed to be some big hotshot WvW patch month, which will hopefully see some WvW progression and maybe some ascended items earned from WvW. If that comes to pass, you won’t have to worry too much about losing fights due to stat differentials.
