The gear tiers just piss me off in general.

I'd prefer to see:

Whites - removed
Blues - sub-80 weapons
Green - 80, standard skins
Yellow - 80, rare skins
Orange - removed
Pink - removed
Purple - removed

Then just make your yellows available in a variety of different ways, including dungeon tokens, random drops, etc...

What the hell is wrong with that?

1350 fractal relics is not expensive. First of all it doesn't cost Gold and doing Fractals is really good money. Secondly, by the time you even need an ascended backpiece you would've had that many tokens already anyways and by then you also will need the Ascended backpiece to have Agony resist. Complaining about not liking grinding is one thing but be logical about it.

And when did we need Ascended gear to become competitive in WvW play? As you guys have said, it's hard to get them and those people who wanted them and put in the effort have them. Also 250 Ectos is not a lot, but 500 is. In Fractals and Cursed Shore, Rares drop like candy and you can salvage them to get 1-3 Ectos each.

Personally, I'm enjoying climbing the difficulty levels of Fractals. It really puts every classes build to the test and pushes team work.

Okay i accept your opinion about throwing away all the other tiers.. But can you explain why having two tiers is a good idea?

Grinding for something you don't actually need and then complaining about it. Well, makes sense.

Did you just not read the thread or what? >.< if you want to actually get further in fractals you DO need it.

But that's only to get deeper you need it, only reason, no real reward (sure better drops and whatnot, but nothing but just getting deeper to be deeper)

From 8 daily level 10+ chests I got 6 rings, and from 3 daily level 20+ chests I got 1 ring and 1 Fractal Greatsword. In total 11 daily chests and got 7 rings + Fractal Greatsword, Only 3 runs I got nothing. Plus at the time I went to level 20+ I had enough fractals to buy the back item and almost the ascended gift. I think the worst parts are :

-The 250 Globs of Ectoplasm needed to make the infused version of the back item.
-The 100 T6 materials to create infusions, and you cannot take out infusions once applied to an item.
-All the Bank space needed to keep all the loot (Globs, relics, rings, etc etc).

That was awfully lucky of you.

I went through 10 dailies before seeing a single Ascended ring drop.

And I didn't want to spend 50 ecto to craft a back piece. (When that would just cut into the 250 needed to upgrade it to "infused")

Fortunately, they recently made that change with pristine relics and allowing you to buy a ring...

But yeah, I was fed up with running fractals over and over again for RNG grind and seeing everyone else get a ring.

I'm a little over halfway to an Ascended fractal capacitor...  Then I'll be able to move on up to level 20 and try to fight the RNG for the Fractal weapons I want.

(I have a feeling that Fractal weapons will be upgradeable to Ascended weapons with the January/February patches.)

The only two tiers I want are sub-80, and 80. Or you could remove leveling all together and just have one tier, but that would be a pretty drastic change.

Before I actually started grinding for the fractal capacitor I thought the amount of ectos and fractal relics it required was insane but soon I discovered that you could get ectos rather easily by doing the daily fractal run (usually at least 1 rare and/or gold worth 3-4 ectos, sometimes you get much luckier ie. get a lodestone drop) and same goes for the relics. Simply by doing a daily level 10 run you could get more than 50 relics (can't remember the exact amount).

A lot of people will say it's a waste of gold to get the final version of the fractal capacitor but I personally am going for it simply for the looks. Shiny ftw.

Im a bit confused by the different levels of ascended gear.

An uninfused item can have a +5 resistance added yes? You can then infuse that and it will have an inherent +5, plus an additional slot for another +5 giving you 10 resistance for one item. Is that correct?

If so then I don't see myself grinding 250 ecto for just an additional +5 agony resistance...

That's correct.

You can get +10 resistance on a single infused item.  (Currently, it's possible that they'll introduce infusions with higher agony resistance...  As they've stated these are just the first of the infusions and they're the lowest rarity.  Imagine "Ascended" level infusions.)

This amounts to a total possible resistance of +30 currently.

Only back pieces require ecto to upgrade.  Rings upgrade with account-bound Ascended materials from the Fractals.  (or, alternatively, infused rings also start dropping at daily level 20)
