Aurora crafting?

Aurora is mostly collections. You can skip the hardest part (in my opinion), which is the achievement completions for each map, by doing the reward track for those maps in PvP for the gear reward associated with the collection.

You must complete the first part of the story mode for each associated map before you can do the PvP reward track though. Regardless, you will still need a lot of the map currencies from each map (which you can get small amount of in the associated PvP reward tracks if I’m not mistaken). Other than that, you do a lot of PvE running around and boss killing, etc. It’s like most legendary weapon collections in that respect.

Achievements and collections are account wide. As far as I know, all crafting items and precursors are account bound perhaps with the exception of equipping the precursors. That’s easily checked by reading the hover-over tooltip though.

I’ve done plenty of these. A lot of the time they aren’t advertised after a certain time because they’re full.

Yeah, I’m happy I had some ore left over from farming for Nevermore materials. I also don’t know why it had to be that specific mat.

Legendary Weapons Still Requiring HoT

Yeah, follow an HP train and you’ll get completion quick. They also buffed nodes for gathering the required map-specific materials to show up around major event areas. When I did Nevermore last year it was much more of a grind. Plus, the masteries are a one-time thing and then you can just skip that headache for the next legend you want from the HoT set. Working on The Shining Blade now myself actually. Best of luck!

Need advice for my legend weapon

You can change stats anytime with a legendary weapon, that’s the glory of it! Right-click it from your hero panel (H) on the equipment tab to change them.

I actually enjoyed this. It makes you play other types of content whether you think you’ll like it or not. I actually liked it more than I thought. Might not play it often, but I’ll definitely come back for some other reward tracks.

Why the lapse between demo and rollout?

Probably still polishing things up. It’s likely that the demo is mostly for hype while they’re still solving some bugs and implementing minor visual improvements in later areas. However, they could also take the feedback of a larger sample of the population into consideration for changes to the end product.

Why did you pre-purchase Path of Fire?

Looking forward to the continued story. I would hate to stop now when there’s more to see and do. Plus, this is only the second expansion but the first was enormous in terms of what it brought to the table. Plus there are likely to be new legendaries eventually. Totally looking forward to seeing what they look like. >_<

Is anyone HAPPY with the new elites??

I’m happy for a potentially simplified elementalist. Also excited because I’m working on The Shining Blade…

Looking forward to trying something new with my ele. Might actually put the effort in to craft bolt eventually now.
