I feel this needs more awareness since alot of people could be blowing out thousands of relics and hundreds of ecto's plus alot more and find out later they could of got the stats they wanted if they waited....

We do plan on adding more stat combo to existing ascended item types as well as adding more stat combos to new types.

So we will get more ascended stats eventually....better late communicating than never I guess but sad its taken them months to finally tell us...

No idea when and what stats though....hopefully they will confirm and clarify.

I have seen the post and realize Anet may plan to eventually add them.

What I have a problem with and want to know the answer to is why three types of Ascended items lack Precision, Healing, and Winter as primary attributes?

Winter

I don't even... what? I saw this term floating around a few days ago, what is it exactly?

More on topic: I forged my back a month ago and infused it with 75 relics. It's enabled me to more easily do fotm 26 so I have no complaints if they add a new one (my pseudotanky Guardian has the Valkyrie back: Power/CritDmg/Vit)

I think by "Winter" they mean the boon duration from the Snowflake jewellery or something. It's unique to that jewellery.

So basically we are working to an age where exotics will be worthless if ascended is going to be even more powerful... Anyone dreading that we can buy ascended stuff via the store at some point ?

I don't get it. How hard could it possibly be to create some new items? This is something that would take 1 hour of development time, tops.

I'm yet again dumbfounded by Arena Net...

Straight up buying gear that is BiS at the time? Not really, no. At some point, after they released another tier of armor between ascended and legendary, I could see them offering ascended gear as a shortcut to people to catch up with what the majority of player is doing in game. Arguably, that's called called convenience. Players can either work to get to the best gear or pay a price and get it faster.
On the other hand, MMOs are all about progression, a never ending journey, so maybe ANet won't offer players gear progression skips because they want every player to experience the game to its full extent and prevent newer players from ruining high end gear runs by just buying the appropriate equipment. People are already upset that there is no reliable way to check a player's experience with a certain kind of dungeon(mostly fotm for now). Sure, that can be easily solved with publicly visible statistics(i.e. completed dungeon levels), but that's going off topic.

I don't know, I could see them going either way right now.

I hope the next ascended stats will have combinations already in the game. My condi ele really doesn't need Condi/Precsision/Toughness.

Yeah thats why im kind of surprised Anet have not communicated it more or properly announced it, loads of players have probably wasted ecto's and materials on stats they probably never wanted and didnt know they could wait for new stats...

I just hope they give us more information and some sort of ETA...
