Just completed my monthly achivement to get thos 10 vials of karma and poped a karma booster first b4 drinking and wow. I can get some of that lev 80 exotics now and not grind the event grind over and over for karma. I wanted to hurry and do that before they figure its too good and nerf the amount of karma recieved or the karma booster effecting the vials.

It did take alot of salvaging lol

Salvaging isn't my problem.  It's the WvW kills.  >_<

Ya know I thought that would be a issue when I looked at requirements on wiki, but then when I logged on I had them accomplished. I don't wvw a whole lot, and shure dont seem to have that manny kills, but I guess tags for my traps and barrage must count as kills when they die. I sure didn't get that manny loot bags from enemies or tokens.

Yep as long as monthly forces you to WvW, I will never get it :(

OH well what do you do.

yea i would rather it be like 10k karma earned in wvw instead of kills. I mean any one can solo take the little flag guys on the road. And kill Dolyaks. Taking keeps and supply camps would just get ya there sooner.

Eh, it's not so bad.  Just stand on a castle wall with a longbow or find a siege weapon and pretend it's PvE.

Yea, 50 kills is not much at all to get in a month.  If you can get on an arrow cart while defending you should be able to get credit for kills quickly.

Or just stick with the zerg and try to tag as many people you can.

Hey, I got my 50 easy and I'm the biggest PvP scrub ever. Stick with the Zerg, as the man said.

Well maybe I will give it a try, I have all the other monthly done except for that one.

Thanks for the advice, and also thanks to the other posts below Dahk's post.

I may try out both options and see if I can stand one long enough to get the 50 kills.

This. You can do it in less than a day, it's everything else that takes the whole month.

Yeah, I didn't have a problem with the WvWvW kills last month, either. As was said, if you stick with the zerg and tag, you'll get them pretty quickly. Bring a ranged weapon, preferrably with AOE skills, and just try to hit as many things as possible.

My problem was the salvaging. I had something like 200 to go with a week left in the month, so I gave up. If they remove that, I may try again, but I do not think I will ever be able to salvage that many items without buying trash off the TP.

This depends on your WvW matchup.  BG vs ET vs HoD is a joke right now.  We're basically being spawn camped.

The other parts of the monthly are long done for me.

The 50 wvw kills. Are they player kills or also NPCs that you see standing around?

I never done wvw except mapping the areas and I have 15 kills although I don't remmeber killing that many actual players. I think while running around mapping I killed 3 or 4 but for sure not 15

Thanks a head for any reply.

Pretty much.  I've yet to get 1 kill in WvW because I've never been or done it yet.  Only time is when we are forced to for 100% map completion.  I still think it dumb to make Monthly AND World completion force us into WvW when one doesn't want to bother with it.

This is a good question I would like to know this as well.

If you do WvW I am sure it is. I don't really like WvW so, that makes it hard for me.

For me all the others are very very easy and quick.

But, like I posted before I will take the advice of the two options for setting on a wall and picking off people and I will also try the zerg out and see how that goes. Hopefully I can do one or the other long enough to get the 50 then leave and so something I like to do.

I personally don't like PvP and don't like having it forced on me to complete some task to get a reward from the game.

As long as you're in a more superior zerg on a winning server, the WvW kills are the easiest. I just barely scratched it out last month because I was on a losing server and I played during non-peak hours. I might WvW the next couple nights, see if i can't get those kills before the end of the month.

And NPC kills do not count towards the monthly kills. Because they're not "invaders". I know this because I went around killing NPCs, pack dolyaks, and guards trying to get it but the ticker never moved. has to be player characters.

I think the same thing every month but I have no problem getting the kills needed and it's great to "FINISH THEM", you just gotta take the time and be sure to group up with someone.

Player kills. They aren't planting player kills, or deathmatch player kills, they're tags. You simply deal 4-6% of their health and when they die after being downed you get exp, a player kill gets added to your records, and you have a chance at getting loot.

If you honestly have that much difficulty getting them buy an arrow cart and place it in a tower that is going to be contested soon. You can easily rack up the 50 necessary kills in about 15 minutes if you're on a contested tower next to the enemy's spawn.

ugg this months achievment change bites. like 5 or so dungeon completions. I hope thats not the entire dungeon, I wonder if its story mode will count also. I usly only get like 30 to 45 mins to play so not sure if I willbe able to complete dungeons.
the other ones have ??? not sure what they will be.

Oh and just a bit of wvw this morning with the zerg and I got 16 kills added to achievment so its not that hard.

One path counts as 1/5:

Did AC all 3 ways and it says 3/5 now ;)
So the paths should count
http://www.guildwars...ement-dungeons/

If you and the party know the dungeon 30-45 mins is viable. Caudecus Manor is pretty straightforward on routes 1 and 3.

I usually get the WvW by the end of the first whole week off the month.  Dungeon completions is a bit trickier, but also not too hard.
It's the salvaging that kills me, since I'm lvl 80 I have a hard time justifying the need for that much mithril and elder logs (they also sell for dirt cheap on the TP because of this).
Well, I do have to clear the rest of the charr areas so I guess I'll be using them alot that way.

Made my 50 kills in 3hrs more or less, just follow the zerg and tag as much ppl as possible, to gain the kill is not important that you actually kill your target, tag is enough (like in pve) you will get rewarded anyway if the target dies by someone's else hand ;)

ps: i'm a staff ele, so easy ahahah :D
