Thank you. What a shame.
So if you collect 10 golden fractal relents and dump 100 ectos into the conversion recipe you still only get an exotic?
(edited by A OK.8276)
I have a feeling that is correct. I will wait for confirmation though.
Is the gold fractal chest you buy from Bling-9009Ascended or Exotic? The vendor says ascended but the wiki says exotic. I have been fooled by thing’s like this from anet before.
I accidentally consumed my tomes before consuming my scroll to level to 20. can i delete this character and refund them somehow? I cant believe i screwed this up.
Hi, I just heard your cry for help. I just want to know on what kind of unbound greatsword you want. Is it an exotic, rare, or precursor? What level is it for?
I’m making either twilight or sunrise this week I have the mats for both. If someone has the other one we could forge eternity together then reap the tewards
Does the trade with a friend to make eternity trick still work (I don’t see why not, but you never know).
Also, would anyone be willing to send me an unbound greatsword so I could send them back eternity. I am going to make either sunrise or twilight this week and would like to get the most out of it. I would probably send someone in hopes I wouldn’t get ripped off. Of course the person who gets eternity gets the better deal but there are trust issues with these kinds of transactions.
I’m only asking the forums because I have no friends… haha.
New it was something extraordinary. With as many people as there is in this community strange outliers are bound to happen.
So let me ask you some things…
Did you buy HoT or not?
Did you contact support demanding a refund, on the grounds that you were not going to purchase the expansion + core game until you were refunded the cost of the core game?
If you went to anet…. told them you are not going to buy the expansion + the core game until you are refunded for the core game…..
then they refund you for the core game, and you don’t uphold your end of the deal and buy the expansion + core package…. you didn’t uphold your end of the bargain.
Until you make the purchase, you were basically refunded for the game, and no longer have the game until you buy it again.
Oh snap. That would be funny
Something fishy is happening here. I am awaiting information from the mothers ship.
So I have been working on finding a nice compromise for everyone with regards to the original “play how you want” crowd and the new “I want a trinity” crowd.
When I look at the issue I originally did not understand why some kind of trinity or credit for playing a healer mini game was wanted by this vocal minority. Then suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks… what these people are missing is the feeling of being needed!
In light of this I am working on a website (and maybe an overlay of some kind) which mimics the looking for group tool and party chat window. What this tool will do is put up fake lfg’s trying to find a healer or tanks for fictional content then you could join and in the fake chat window bots could thank you for whatever you joined up for. Things like, “Omg thanks for being a meat sheild! This game is design so that someone has to fill that boring role!” Or, “You’re the best at watching my health bar, we should party up again sometime.”
While all that goes on in the background you can have fun playing this game and go back to it whenever miss being needed by the cool kid crowd. Get that fix then jump back into looking for group with the party description " All welcome" and enjoy paying however you want!
I am being serious about this. I am working on it now.
It’s not difficult if every weapon just has 2 modes.
Hammer + Jalis/Ventari: ranged, like now
Hammer + Shiro/Mallyx: melee+cleave
or vice versa.
Love this idea. It will never be done in game because game designers don’t like to take a step back. But still this would make reverent the most exciting class to play Imo
Don’t be afraid to get in there a tag a boss/mob every now and again. Multitasking is rewarded in this game.
I won’t be switching to a toon who uses an off hand. Specialized? Because you can use a sheild and maybe a utility doesn’t mean anything. Should have been 5 weapon skills. Even of you only get a shield one of the main hand existing weapon skill should have changed.
Wow so this is an intended feature? What an intersting way to add more challanging group content. Personally I don’t like it but I can see where some would… similar to the Holy trinity.
What OP is asking is just not going to happen, at most they will announce something like the 3 day head start for the original launch if even that (the economy could suffer if they did that maybe, so they might not).
The economy is going to go crazy regardless. People with inside information always stock up and fix prices way before us losers ever find out.
I have had pretty good luck with fractals.. even level 20-31. Also pvp. I’ve had 2 drop recently. I think they were rank chests
Why do so many people seem to over exaggerate time-scales. It’s not been 6 months since Jan 24th, nor has it been 8 weeks since May the 14th.
5.25 months and 7.57 weeks. These guys need to get there time scales checked! That type of inaccuracy is unacceptable in a modern society… we would be no better than filthy apes.
I’m getting excited for other specializations they will probably make me switch which class i play. I’m getting tired of guardian again and you won’t see me wield a bow I can tell you that.
Yes your missing the part were cheep tricks like double hp do not in any way come close to meeting anyone’s expectations of challenging group content.
And I think you are missing the part where challenging doesn’t mean everyone will accomplish the goal. It’s means those who are good will
What about killing 3 worms within a few minutes of each other. Each worm with its own unique mechanic to kill? That sounds like a good challenging event!
Weapon swaps and kits? Get those fingers warmed up!!
I’m not tired of it. I think it’s fun.
I thought they should change a single weapon for elites that only get an off hand or main hand weapon.it would be nice to get 5 weapon skills each and really get some build diversity and maybe some synergy with under utilized weapons. That was before they announced the Chronomancer. Oh well,maybe next time.
I would walk away and never look back
That was tight…
I’m a fan of this humor. I like that you listed professions and everything!
You guys should post your builds! I wonder what they could be??
This will be fixed in a hurry. Group events like teq have been turned into a laughing stock.
You need the minor for shouts greatsword and reapershroud. Can’t cherry pick one or the other…. don’t have to rush shouts though
Good point. Oh well
it seems like they just upright stopped the reveals. They WERE supposed to continue after the ventari legend. then just didn’t do it anymore.
Perhaps they simply haven’t finalized the other elite specializations yet and aren’t ready to talk about them. I mean, if you’re to believe the datamining, they presumably changed the Elementalist weapon from one-handed sword to warhorn.
After the Dragonhunter reveal fiasco I don’t blame them for taking their time on the next batches.
I just hope that they will publish the elite specializations before the datamininers do. The name of my main’s elite spec was already datamined.
I agree… I doubt they have finalized a few of the specs. Considering the snore fest that was Dragonhunter, they may put more time into presentation of the specs as well. The only difference between Reaper and Dragon hunter is the Polish and story. They both are just a weapon and utility from another class.
HoT won’t be out for a long time regardless of how much polish they put on the weekly specs but I hope they keep putting out good quality hype so the newbies just don’t walk away after the summer.
I feel like the temptest is coming up tomorrow. I like watching the forums explode with opinions from our elected representatives for the community
All my character names are made from using a phone keyboard letters and my social insurance number as the digits! That way no one will have the same name as me.
One of the more clever things I’ve come up with
I play pvp and pve and I prefer the buffed traits in both modes. I didn’t and still don’t use meta builds and u can still use the same weapons and play style as before… actually a couple niche weapons get used in some situations because they received buffs.
At the end if the day I have exactly the same amount of fun playing the game. Having 2 points in explosives for whatever reason didn’t make my experience any different.
I am hopeful that the new system continues to grow and get better. If any of the traits seem useless maybe they will get replace quicker. Only time will tell. I’m glad the garbage is gone and I will continue to enjoy the game base in content and competition… not quantity.
Offical PvF to Zerker Elitist Translator is here.
He ran at least 150 difficulty 49 fractals, as well as a minimum of 150 difficulty 50 fractals.
For ~105-113 of the 49s he received rare/exotic rewards with a few interspersed ascended rewards.
For ~105-113 of the 50s he received blue/green rewards with a few interspersed exotic rewards, which seem to have occurred at a rate similar to precursors.
I am curious, with weapons that have a dmg range of 100, you do a minimum of 5x that amount of hits(500+) where you decrease as many of the factors that affect outgoing damage when testing a coefficient and quite possibly you do upwards of 1000 hits. Since I’ve seen 1 precursor drop in nearly 3 years of slaughtering mobs, I’m going to assume that precursor drop rates are irrelevant to the drop rate of exotics on fractal 50s, pretty sure that was a hyperbolic statement.
That’s why the zerker elitest’s pay you the big bucks!
This op is OP. 0/10. Sounds like a l2b issue ( learn to buy). GG and QQ… I’ll be honest I have no idea what I’m talking about….
Could they say in the opening cinematif that the hero received a visitation from rylock when they were young and he taught them how to weild powers from the mists? It would be only future Rylock who would know this information. The only issue might be glints power being welded all the time. I really skipped all the cinimatics and didn’t pay much attention to the story much in living season two… does everyone know the story of glint or is it lost knowledge?
Ps I don’t watch the cinimatics because a lot of them were missing subs and I’m hearing impaired… might wanna fix that.

Tempest is awesome. You need to look it up.
Don’t need to. I’m well aware of the various meanings of the word tempest. I’m also aware many people like it. Still… in my opinion is sounds like a marvel superheroine.
Seems a bit silly. Why should Braham even bother becoming a “Dragon Hunter”? Why not just become a ranger instead?
nailed it. I remember hearing a lot of Ideas for gardian specializations that were pretty cool and interestingly conceived. If they had a Cool idea behind the concept I would probably Be way mere excited.
90% of people expecteda great sword and a reaper specialization, could’ve been super boring but they had a cool plan and a totally great idea to change the profession mechanic. Dragonhunter seems lackluster. The reality is anet probably asked them self what do each profession eed? What weapon can do that conceivably… great let’s use that. Maybe if no one could come up with something cool for long bow you guys should have just made an off hand dagger a long range weapon. Not like it matters in this game anyways.
I’m sure this will all blow over after a month of HoT but this still has been an interesting point of conversation for gw2 fans. Although functionality is important and guardians got what they needed most (arguably) it seems as though creativity rules above all else.
Side bar… how is there no thread like this over temptest? That name seems weaker and more boring to me… not to mention overly feminine… possibly even sailor moon anime feminine.
The accessories are mostly a mix of 2 sets of stats. They would need another recipe for them… or allow 5 items in the toilet.
I guess they could have just some of the recipes craft able too. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for it. This just might have held them back.
I use axe/sword and sword/shield. I fin people have trouble dealing with blocks reflects gap closers and the bursts. Everyone expects you to pull out a longbow. I catch a lot of meta jerks sleeping.
I’m ok with offhand torch. Fire and gunpowder could equal burst and blinds. Like a Sapper.
Perfect balance is boring anyways. Everyone 1v1 fighting for 10 minutes is boring. I like having to adapt and that in some situations I have no chance. I have been having with the burst hero mesmers when the patch dropped but last night I figured some stuff out… brought a couple gap closers a couple blinds and blocks and all of a sudden I was turning those same mesmers into red and purple dust. A good mesmer can still get away or if I don’t see them comming im dead but that’s not the point. For what I’m trying to do in conquest (win with points) that’s all the ballance I need.
I just love how all these no-names are suddenly appearing telling pillars/veterans of the community “L2P” because their favourite insta-gank spec/class is suddenly not only viable but faceroll easy to play.
Honestly, anyone who thinks this current iteration of damage/balance is okay has no interest in the health of GW2’s competitive game mode, and is only interested in their instagib fun which is all PvP is right now.
Although I enjoy the new trait changes I do find these people increadably annoying. I get that bursting damage from stealth at max range brings you pleasure Mesmer. I will eventually find a build that will make you go back to wvw again.
This is how the game was at launch, High burst reaction based combat. if you played at launch you will adept pretty quick. Those 15 min fights never belonged in this game. The game is simply not designed around it.
Not to be rude but if your looking for that style of combat there are plenty of other games out there that follow it. There are very few action based combat games so please don’t ruin this one. (again)
I agree. I like the craziness. Feels more action packed. I think this will improve map rotations because a bunker won’t last forever at home and you have to pick your fights. Fund new ways to midi gate damage, close gaps, sustain or but damage. Team fights needs need lots of utility to counteract how punchy everyone is.
Don’t worry about new players they will adapt to it as well, they don’t have to be able to 1v1 sface roll vets on a point because of cheese builds. There are other ways to be useful. Bring some team support, get with amother mid point attacker and get out there. People are built to adapt.
In solo que? Or was this unranked you played against a party of 4?
I’m hoping this all turns out. I like the idea that you have to sacrifice a little. I wonder if limiting builds to specialists in one or two aspects of the game rather than being all rounders of the celestial age. Might make team composition and strategy more important in conquest. Not really ideal for me since I can’t really get into team play but could be good for the game.
This patch is a shame. This is the end of gw2 pvp.
Perhaps a bit too dramatic. I’m ok with the changes and I’m not even a burst theif that seems to think he got much better at pvp overnight. I like the glass cannons for of the solo fights and the support most classes can bring to team fights. I’m still working on some builds but it seems some of my more quirky builds are finding a place in some situations. Overall it’s fun.
I think we just have to be on our toes again until we find that synergy in the builds you like to run (or wait unil someone makes a build for you on metabattle) I know for now I don’t mess with mesmers 1v1… but that’s just the builds I run. There are people out there that think burst mesmers are weak… I guess that’s the point of having classes and build rather than perfect balance.
