This sounds like an amazing raid group and so so much fun, I would love to be a part of it, I have legendary armor 500+ LI, all challengemode clear, full legendary guardian, please invite.
“As with legendary weapons, each piece of the legendary armor will let you select its stats from any of those available in the game when you’re out of combat. If you want to use Yassith’s headpiece with Zojja’s tassets and Ahamid’s boots, it’s as simple as clicking on that armor piece and selecting those stats.
Take the example I run into on a regular basis: as a warrior, I normally run a Phalanx Strength build, using a set of ascended armor with berserker stats and Superior Runes of the Scholar. However, sometimes a fight calls for me to run a condition build. This requires a separate set of armor with different stats and different runes.
Legendary armor with selectable stats would address the need for two sets of armor with different stats—but what about the runes? Don’t worry, we have you covered.
When you apply an upgrade (rune or infusion) to a piece of legendary armor and there is already an upgrade in the slot you have selected, the existing upgrade will be moved to your inventory and the new upgrade will replace it. Simple as that.”
Will this also apply to Legendary weapons, at the start of the next patch? That would be an amazing QoL feature and make the weapons a time investement that is truely worth it!

Personally I think that each living world episode was better than the one previous to it, this patch especially trumped A Crack In The Ice by far, I like how the patches have alot of small detail, and in this patch, especially, I really appreciate all the nods to things the community have been speculating about; tying up the early Human personal story to the white mantle, adding a map we knew was in the game files for a long time (even though its not the same), the hidden room in Caudecus’s Manor.
The new zone is intricate in detail and again a piece of art, the events are fun and it feels like what you’re tried to achieve: a warzone. The buff in the new map is a nice nod to GW1 Ebon Vanguard Assassin skill.
The only gripe I have, as a player who has sunk many many hours in this game, is that there is no collection achievement or any sort of “zone mastery” achievement. I would really like to see collections come in to the new zones, that reward a title or an aura, so that players can recognize that you’ve truely mastered and played the zone and should possibly know all about it. (This could include certain achievements, and locking all the different karma vendor items) I think this would also tie alot of people over untill the next patch release.
Overall, this was my favorite patch in the full 4+ years that i’ve been playing the game, keep up the good stuff!
So, yesterday we got up to Samarog 66% phase (actually 41%), having to force our full team to go condi and overall playing builds that were not 100% comfortable with, is this fight bug, is there some mechanic we’re not figuring out, or is there something we haven’t found out yet?
It seems highly unlikely to me that you need 8 condi’s to actually clear the fight.
Another thing that im wondering is the fixation, which seems to swap back and forth, giving you almost no chance to keep Guldhem and Rigom apart.
Anyone know the way?
Being put into matches with people having no clue, after placement matches this has kept happening to me, and with no clue I mean people running into DH traps, people comming up with bullkitten strategies like leaving points so that they’ll get decapped.
Already done with this season.
Cause a certain build is still alive and well…
I left last month (I played around 6 hours a day), left due to the sorry mess that PVP is in an truely thinking vanilla gw2 pvp was better. The devs remove amulets because one build is overpowered, then forget that theres other builds using the amulet that is completely screwed.
I was a 4 year player of this franchise with over 14k hours logged, I also tend to think that PVP is what keeps a majority of the players playing untill the next patch, and when doing it on GW2, im not having fun anymore.
Anet, please do something about your horrible balance, be it introducing a “Core Only” game-mode, or proper balance. Powercreep like this is not fun for anyone.
Maybe a bit late, but Arah 4 also has loads of client crashes, Lyssa crashed all of us, and bloodstone crashed 3 of us, seems to have something to do with the illusion spawning mechanic.
Can confirm, unranked games are pretty balanced and fun atm :P
Cause how can a solo-quer expect decent matchmaking?
Anyone else been encountering Wings of Resolve simply leaping you to your target, instead of where you targeted it?
This has happened to me several times now where I leap behind me or to where my target is, but not actually where I am
I’d actually want something tied to Bloodstone Fen, Dry Top had the ambrite weapon collection, Silverwastes the Carapace Armor collection. Bloodstone Fen just feels kind of meh, they don’t have to go out of their way to create a whole weaponset.
Could just add a collection for getting all minis/bloodstone jewelery, slap +10 AP on it and a title and it’d feel more like “Hey, i’ve mastered this zone and got the collection for it!”
Oh kitten . Well, no it was Bloodstone Fen collection.. but…
maybe we can get something arranged, wink wink nudge nudge.
I’ve actually said the same thing after the raid’s ending, anet has seemed to be setting this story up all the way since launch, most people I talk to are more interested in the white mantle/ lazarus than they are interested in going for another dragons. Anet doesnt seem capable of making the dragons a very threatening antagonist. It also seems highly likely to me, at this point, that Lazarus will be the main antagonist for a looooong time to come, especially because we’ve already seen what happens when too much magic releases into the world and this will only become worse.
Hyped for the future of the story, hoping we’re going to focus more on villains with actual personality than forces of nature.
While Bloodstone Fen is a fun zone, I feel like it lacks something; a reason to go back to it.
Sure, theres the T6 mats and all, which is very nice, but at the end of the day I feel liek theres still no incentive to actually go to the zone.
So I was thinking, maybe Anet should add a collection to collect the ascended items in BF aswell as the minis, this collection could just reward AP and a title, so that those who have gotten the items can show off they have “mastered the zone”?
===TO BE CONTINUED ====
What do they have to feel nervous about?
A few hours later we passed Fort Salma, I could feel that the guards and caravan leader were growing more tense. I feel like, even though its been hours, that we have been walking for years!
I wonder why they are nervous, The seraph currently attend to more pressing matters, what with the Mordrem Incursions.
We took refuge in the foothills overlooking Fort Salma, two of the company went out to hunt moa, one is on the look out.
I’m excited, soon enough i will get to be with those who share my beliefs, I will not feel like an outcast anymore, be able to give my all for Kryta, elevate her back to greatness.
…But that’s it for today, Lyss. Dinner is ready. I’ll try and converse with the others, perhaps they’d wish to share a tale or two!
The Road Leading West.
We travelled Lion’s Road Westward.
It took us a long hike before reaching what used to be a wide open field, nowadays, there’s rubble there from the tower errected by the mix of Krait and Nightmare Court. In the lake you can still see it’s remains.
This is but one of the blights left upon the land, the blame given solely to miss management of the kingdom.
About our company:
We are a group of seven, a caravan leader, three guards, me, and two civillians.
i don’t know the names of everyone, they seem not to talk much about themselves.
I was told not to speak with the other two, but I cant help but wonder if they are headed towards the same destination.
I cant shake the feeling that these two people have had something horrible happen to them, I want to help them.
I will try to speak with them, they look malnourished, dehydrated, in need of a smile.
If need be, i’ll try and get them some food.
I shall name you “Lyss”, for now, you are going to keep me company on my travels west. From now on, every day I shall write within you. Consider you my sister.
If something were to happen to me, You shall be my Legacy, My retelling of the events that are to unfold in the following days.
I left Triskell today….
They knocked on my door earlier than arranged.
I had thought I had plenty of time to pack some things before heading out, yet, as I opened the door, They told me I had about five minutes to pack my things.
They were an unsavory type. I indentified them as bandits, dressed in red and black, bandanas to conceil their identities. They bore makeshift weapons, held together by leather straps.
I picked what I could, my heart filled with bliss, I was going there, a place unlike any other, to work with them, to cure Kryta of the sickness inflicted upon it.
(edited by Excell.1042)
This is the diary of my character by the name of Ilya Galatheon, a young Krytan woman who is part of the White Mantle, the story is made to give more detail into the character which I roleplay on Piken Square.
This story will follow the character on her journey towards the Stronghold of the Faithful, before the events of Heart of Thorns, and in particular the story of the Forsaken Thicket unfolds.
This story with the intention to have people experience the story from another perspective; it is intended to give an insight on how Religious Fanaticism and brainwashing can impact an innocent person into doing things against their instinct.
I want to thank Arena Net for inspiring me to write the story, the style of the images was inspired by their facebook posts in preparation of Raid Wing 3.
So, with the obvious return of the White Mantle, and the comming patch (probarbly) dealing with them, aswell as the fact that the raid already kind of concluded with us learning the white mantle are back and rising again, will raid characters have different dialogue and interactions than characters that didnt complete the raid.
It would seem really illogical to me if my character is gonna be dumbstruck when someone tells him the white mantle has risen, something i’m fairly sure he’s figured out right now.
And im sure plenty of people who were raiding would feel the same ;P
Lets say it like this, -if- anet scrapped new legendary weapons because they thought too little players would involve themselves in the content, the chances of these things happening are saddly zero as im sure theres more people trying to go for legendaries than there are people roleplaying :p
- Possibility of creating a description of your character by clicking the name (a lot of MMO’s have this!)
- Option of turning armor-glow and/or weapon-glow off.
- Dyeing of tonics.
- Choice of animation (for example choosing between male and female sitting animation, walking animation, class animation.)
- More possibilities for beards, horns and ears in some races. Maybe scars? Tattoos?
- Capes and/or cloaks.
- Possible pet-option. Meaning not a pet that is available in combat, but a mere model of something in-game to walk beside you.
Massive problems here that the fact that the game is still experiencing a heavy content drought, I would not really like to see these changes, not because I wouldnt want them but because most of these things seem like they need new systems to develope, and that would make stuff like Living World take even longer.
Also, two of these things logistically is not “drag and drop” into the game;
Animations are set on a rig that could be varying from male characters to female characters, so the animations will just break.
The ability to change class animations would be ridiculous in pvp where reading of animations is essential, also, imagine movement animations to be buggy as all hell, with their hitboxes not actually lining up with the animation.
Capes have been worked on before and asked for for the longest time and it seems like there was no progress on them.
Still nice ideas, tho
Am I the only one who feels like the gamemode as it stands right now is not fun anymore?
Half of the time a match seems to be decided before it even started, the elite specs got so much sustain/damage/cc/condi on them that it feels like a cluster—— of skills and that there is no more strategy involved in actually playing pvp.
Would there even be a chance for anet to still fix the gamemode as a whole or is it better to just quit gw2 alltogether?
Here we go again boiis! OP sucked at dodging, Op was like “Oh kitten predictable tell on trueshot” trueshot hit op, op got hit for 2k, started panicing and running around, triggerd ToF and kept hitting it for a few times, got downed.
OP: “Anet plz nerf guardian so OP right now, plz cant handle guardian too stronk QQ”
Anet: “Okay we gib nerf lelelelelel guard too hard 2 dodge we make trueshot even more worthless”
*Trueshot has had it’s damage reduced by an additional 20%
*Wings of Resolve now shows the back item you are wearing
I actually bought HoT and actually played the elitespec, most of which I find really ridiculous in pvp, its like base specs on steroids with very little knowledge over classes still going on, as I said, I feel like it’s a 1 shot meta with classes basically just being on steroids and people being carried by imbalance
Really, the powercreep in HoT is not fun, its constantly being ruined by one shot and cheap moments, for the love of god add a core pvp mode so that those who actually enjoy longer matches that actually feel like “I died and it was my fault because I didnt do this or this right” instead of “I died because things are currently massively imbalanced and 1shot”
Please for the love of god do this
Im currently farming the same nodes on different character, this seems to work pretty well but nothing amazing, still looking at 4 hours of grind at this rate
Well, if i’ve been farming mushrooms for the past 2 hours and I only got 2/10 milks so far, something is wrong >.>
I know, made Rodgorts Flame, that was less ridiculous than this *@!# can understand tier 2 being grindy, after all you need to pay for something. But tier 3 shouldnt be grindy, it should be fun.
What mushrooms are you harvesting? it seems I get more on portobello mushroom than standard mushroom, so im guessing the high level mushroom nodes give the most?
Im finding maybe 3 every 10 mushrooms I harvest..
Because i dont care much for gold, i want to experience what they came up with with pre crafting and +9 AP is nice to me, however I do not like being forced into a grindwall after spending that amount.
So, for the t3 legendary collection for The Energizer you need to make indigo Mushroom Milkshake which costs 10 drops of indigo mushroom milk, having seen the ridiculously low droprate on the mushrooms I dread the worst,
Do I really need to collect 250 indigo mushrooms that are an incredibly low drop chance for a legendary precursor that I could’ve bought 3 times?
Or am I going to assume this is a bugged collection part that just wasnt intended to drop so low?
Either way, i’d love some dev response!
wiki say scholar mozzi do research for me anet said it would be souldbound but it not soulbound i dont kno what happenet here
ok so i do rotgortvlame coll, i finsih it after long hard heros jorney. I finish. i spent 300g on rotgort vlam ok? so i then go craft rotgort vlam ok! i say “so cool” i make rodgort vlam 300g on tp. then i see i can sell rotgort vlam i see it 177g on TP i can sell craft rotgort vlam i craft because it soulbind it not soulbind wtf i want 123g back cus this not soulbind. plz fix.
Welcome to the current Guildwars 2, where Rangers become healers, where Mesmers become tanks and where Guardians.. well.. theres only one playstyle for us: Reroll Warrior!
In all honesty, when you come to think of it it is kind of ridiculous how the LOWEST base health of all the heavy armored classes does the LOWEST damage and is also the most worthless class in raids (Even if fully specced into DPS you still never outdps classes like Ele/Warrior/Revenant) So yay.. here’s to hoping we’ll become more viable soon.
Hey there, I’ve been wondering for awhile now,
If an account has been pretty much inactive for a long time already, can you request said name to be unlocked? In my case i’ve been wanting to use a certain name for a very long time, but it was in use, so I added the person to my FL and send them a kind mail requesting if perhaps they’d be okay to delete said name.
However, said player is never online!
By no means do I wish to sound entitled, just wondering ^^
Anyone know how to exactly obtain the Leystone armor?
I’ve got like 5 coat boxes from mouth of mordremoth, and 4 leg boxes from blighted tower event.
Wiki says the blighted tower events can drop any box aside from coats, can someone confirm this? :P
Well yeah, they’re gonna add the whole collection over 3 raid wings and THEN we’ll be able to make the legendary armor set, thats quite nice, makes it so that you have to complete the entire raid, and have time to actually do it in a good phase. My guild is currently on Sabetha, we dont have a set 10 man group and swap between players, seeing as Sabetha only needs to be killed once thats really good for smaller guilds ((Especially when you realize you have to kill gorseval 5 times and get 10 ectoplasmic thingies from the spirit wood aswell))
Besides, this is a nice thing to look forward to, considering that this means that you need to complete a whole raid to finish legendary armor, not just 1 wing and get 2 parts! ^^
Cant seem to get the Extra Shiny Auric Sliver and the Exalted Research notes, is this RNG or just bugged?
Anyone else here feels like getting those 300 auric dusts for 1 weapon ((equals about 10-15 succesful meta completions)) is waaaayyy too much?
I mean, not only do you need 300 dusts, you get anywhere from 15-30 if you open all chests below tarir. But you also need to pay 208 aurrilium, aswell as 500 aurrilium to even get a recipe, that means that you can maybe get a 2h weapon via crafting once every 20 hours, considering tarir battle is on a 2 hour timer?
Am I the only one who thinks this is a bit too much grind?
AFTER 99 DEATHS AND 2 AND A HALF HOURS OF RUNNING, EXCY MADE IT TO ARAH! THE PUNCHLINE: OF THE ESTIMATED 100 DEATHS! HE REACHED IT WITH 99! TYRIA, SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT EXCY THE ADVENTURER!
On the Journey, at the end of Malchor’s Leap, Excy found it was time for an asura party, and thus, with the help of two locals, he started one, after all, after 63 deaths, he had to laugh at the face of the undead dragon of death, and make the final stretch.. and for that.. you need morale.
Making it through the Straits of Devastation, Excy managed to look back and laugh at the armies of risen which had tried to wear him down, the truth is.. Excy wasnt worn down so easily..
Death count: 56
Excy hadnt made it far before once more walking into trouble, he found a way into Orr, through a swamp filled with the living, undead navy, all of which were out for Excy’s ears. And they got Excy. But… the greatest of minds couldnt get Excy down.
Death Count: 34
Excy had made it through Orr, reaching Fort Trinity, he quickly took in the sight for he heard of the credit-devouring monster that lived inside the fort. After that. He made off, as quick as his little feet could take him, deeper into orr.
P.S, he was also called pact commander by random npcs((Anet fix plz this is breaking my emersion))
