I don't really agree that it's gambling xD. But thats subjective anyway.

On the plus side, you can buy them at the trading post and most of the skins aren't too expensive. But yeah, I'm getting sick of random things from chests, just let me buy what I want to buy. I feel like I wasted gems on buying one of these chests, I would have gladly spent it on something my character could actually USE... Oh well.

It's worse because all those chests and keys you saved? Nothing.

Also probably unrelated to Consortium Chests, but someone linked a piece of Legendary armor in map chat today. It begins.

There's also a tiki shield skin that looks pretty amazing. I'll post a screenie once I'm home.

Edit: Chests can also be recycled, ala mad king chests - 3 shoulder/mask skins of the same type + the three items that drop from them [shell fragments, fruit and flowers, iirc] get you a new chest.

This game is seriously lacking pretty, sleek, elegant and realistic weapon and armour skins.
And it isn't getting any better. This not very hopeful for the ascended gear looks -.-

The mini karka trio are adorable :D

I'm hoping they will drop to such a degree that I'm able to buy them from the TP if I get unlucky with drops.

I'm also hoping that no one else likes them :P

Good to know:

All the items found in the Consortium Chest can also be obtained as rare drops from any creature from the new Lost Shores event.

Legendary Armor has been linkable since release.

I am real disappointed in the lethargic attempts they make to add new items to the Gemstore. The sad part is I have gems, and want to spend them, but nothing appeals to me. Either I buy a chest to get random junk or buy more dyes. Let me buy the weapons skins and the pets directly. For the mad King I did buy a few items, but nothing I felt real justified besides the costumes being fun. I am giving them to the Holiday Event to appeal to me otherwise Im going to cash out and not spend any real money. I bought gems in late beta expecting  they would be more frequent with the gemstore.

Look Anet, I'm not buying armor from you until you make something that isn't hideous.

Why not just let us get more Gw1 armors? I'd like some mesmer elite noble, elite enchanter, or Deldrimor, for example.

They all look pretty bad to be honest.
Anet went downhill in regards of skins since GW1.

I agree wholeheartedly. It's nice to see fun stuff, but I would like to see something for those that prefer not to have odd looking shoulders and bottle-shaped focus etc. Pretty, sleek and elegant doesn't seem to be figuring in ANet's mind at the moment.....fan girl as I am, and admire them as I do, I would like to see a wider variety, and not just out of chests either.

Haha yes sometimes I wonder if the extra stats isn't just an indirect & sneaky way to make us buy more fine transmutation stones. And to make sure we do that they don't dare to just trust on the "great looks" of the new stuff - so they also added some extra stats so people will want them nevertheless. Just in case players would think them (for example) bulky and hideous.

My 2c.

And oh yes, GW mesmer armour!! .. GW2 is a pretty game but I haven't seen anything equal to that! Why not have some nice profession specific sets? Now that would be an incentive!
