At least it is consuming one refugee child's drawing, and not just a refugee kid.

I like it, hope to see more.

Just went through and read all of your webcomics since it started a few years ago, and wow.  This is awesomely clever, and its really fun how you tie in all the various aspects of GW2, especially a side of things that we may not really think about all that often.

It was also quite enjoyable going through from the beginning and seeing the changes happen as more and more of the game information was released (like the revamp of how the Sylvari looked, or how the Asura was drawn).  The story-line is pretty amusing with how it toys with the 4th wall and makes it a major plot-point, instead of just ignoring it...but at the same time, it stays believable.

Hope to see more, but I can fully understand the whole "GW2 takes up a lot of time" thing, as there have been times where I'll hop online and tell myself I have a few things I want to get don....EVENT! And 3 hours later I'm looking at the clock and asking myself where the time ran away to...

@actionjack - LOL.  That could have made for a funny comic too.

Have a good vacation!   Stay out of trouble ;)

@Loperdos - Thank you!   It's really cool to hear from people who discover the comic and read it all at once.   I've done the same with webcomics I've discovered and I still find it odd to think now other people are doing it for comic I made.   I'm particularly in reactions of new readers now since the game has been out for half a year and much of the comic was done before we knew many details.

I'm glad you like the comic.   I am planning on returning to Dynamic Events and going through the story I have in mind.  But like you say, logging into GW2 can make large chunks of time suddenly disappear :)

Whoops, it's been a while since I checked and I didn't see the post.  Thanks! Glad you liked the comic :)

I am really wanting to doing more comic art again.   I have several ideas for Toll's Spawn the Dragon and I feel really bad that I left Dynamic Events hanging like that.  

I'll have to see about reaching a stabilization point.  I'm not certainly trying for a legendary so logging onto the game will only be for guild missions.   And dailies.   And the occasional WvW.   And finishing the story mode dungeons.   And the Living Story.  And getting zone completion.

Yeah, I know what you mean on legendaries. If they reach the point at which normal people with real lives can reasonably hope to get one, I'll start looking. (Actually, there is a way I could get one right now; real money -> gems -> gold -> legendary. Problem is, the "real money" part of the equation is somewhere around $1000, and the concept of spending that kind of money on a digital item that could be accidentally deleted tomorrow, for all I know, is completely alien to me.)

Plus, if you do that, where's the sense of achievement?

Y'know, if more people bought legendaries through the gem market, that would drop the price of gems and make it easier to get, well, everything in the gem shop without spending real money yourself.

*cough* I mean, what's the problem? People spend thousands on jewellery, after all, and that can only be shown off to people you meet in person, most of which won't even notice anyway. A legendary can be shown to members of the GW2 community all over the world! Go onnnn, you know you want to! :devil:

Yeah, I understand the sense of achievement, but there's the point where it gets ridiculous, you know? If it takes 500 or whatever hours to grind up a legendary, I'd rather use that time on something else.

I suppose there needs to be those kind of timesinks or else people will complain.  

I'll be happy just getting some Exotics for by main but even those look obnoxious, though I suppose they are nothing unusual for other MMOs.  I just keep thinking about how MMO players forget how ridiculously complicated their games are until they try to explain all the mechanics to people who have never played.    The gear grind in GW2 is the top end of that, I can just imagine the look of some of my friend's faces if I described what was needed  :)

On another note, I may experiment with Windowed mode to see if I can do creative stuff while waiting for the dragons or other events to spawn.  We'll see how that goes.

I really should. I typed /age last weekend in game.

Never, never do that.   Ever.

How're things going AJ? :)  Things have gotten much quieter in the Library.

You guys are giving me nothing to do. You should all be ashamed!
