Keep in mind one important thing.Gear stats will stay the same as now.There won’t be any significant difference in it.The only thing that will make it special is how it looks.
Remember this is not Rift,Swtor,wow or something similar.In thos game you can't buy things with achievement points and GW2 already has a great design which can allow you to buy things with those points.They can be used for something why should you only collect them?
Tier 1 - Gear and weapons: White,Green,Blue,Rare,exotic / 1-79 leveling braket
1.Normal mobs - white,blue gear
2.Elite mobs - greemngear
3.Champion mobs - rare gear
4.Currency - exotic gear (this is exotic gear is specific only for 1-79lvl.You can’t buy this gear with the same currencies for 80lvl because then it is different colour)
a)Tokens from:jumping puzzles,WvW,story mode dungeons
b)Reputation:X1a - buy with silver
5.Crafting - current model(discover thing by experimenting)
You need very little currency to buy things.For instance 20lvl buys things for 100+ karma,43lvl for 500+ karma,67lvl for 750+ karma
If you buy with silver you will need reputation.
Tier 2 - Gear and weapons:Blue / lower 80lvl braket
1.Chests - DE,WvW,Puzzles,Story mode dungeons
2.Reputation:X1b - buy with gold gear
3.Crafting – current model (discover thing by experimenting)
Tier 3 – Gear and weapons:Rare / higher 80lvl braket
1.Curency – rare(yellows)
a)Tokens from: jumping puzzles,WvW,story mode dungeons
b)Reputation:X1c - buy with gold gear and weapons
2.Crafting – current model(discover thing by experimenting)
3.Chest – Explorable dungeons
Tier 4 – Gear and weapons:Exotic / upper 80lvl braket
1)Tokens from Explorable dungeons
2)Reputation: X1d – buy with gold recipes to make gear
Tier 5 – Gear and weapons:Uniques and Legendairies
1)Uniques – black gear only.Those epicks are equivalent of legendairie weapons but for gear.
a)Reputation:X1e - you buy Unique gear with a lot achievement points
b)Crafting – recipes which drop from chests in:Explorable dungeons,DE,jumping puzzles,WvW .It can Drop from farming trees,mines,vegetables,fruits too.BUT and it is a big one.Each farming method has a drop chance.For instance if you farm trees,mines there will be 1% drop chance.So if you do things which are more harder the drop chance will increase and be bigger.
DE,puzzles,WvW will be 5%, Explorables – 10% drop chance .Once you have the recipe you will need materials for the item.They are found in the open world.Uniques are profession specific.This gear will be made different than legendairy weapons. It will not need hundreds of materials.Unique gear will be hard to find the recipe but not hard to make the item.
2)Legendairy weapons only - I won’t change anything from the current model.They will be the same as now.
So here is how you improve your self.
1st you get leveling gear then you hit 80 and start doing for instance DE,WvW,dungeons,Jumping puzzles for gear which drops only from chests and is in “Lower 80lvl braket”.While you farm that gear you receive karma,tokens ,reputation with which you can buy things from “Higher 80lvl braket” BUT they are not easy to get.You will need atleast a week of farming to receive full set.Until then you already will be fully gear from “Lower 80lvl bracket” and you will have enough currency to buy things from the “Higher 80lvl braket”
In “leveling braket” for example you need only 700 karma,for “Higher 80lvl braket” you will need 5k+ karma.
I have made 5 Tiers of gear which means there are 5 models of gear.Each one of them brings different farming models.
1st is leveling gear model.
2nd is 80lvl gearing model NOT based on currency like karma or tokens
3rd is 80lvl gearing model based on currency for instance karma and tokens
4th is 80lvl gearing model which is made for people that want to have a challenge or just like to farm
5th is 80lvl gearing model and it’s the hardest to do(Legendairy weapons and Unique gear)
Numbers 4 and 5 are harder to do and are not meant for everyone.Dungeons will be meant for challenge.Reputations where you buy things for Achievement points are for people who like to farm.
