I am guessing this could have been thrown in the "how many points do you have", but since it wasn't, here's a new thread.

A bit of a spoiler:
http://wiki.guildwar...iki/Achievement

At 1k achievement points we get access to our first Zenith weapon skin. So the question is, which of the rewards did you unlock and which ones do you plan on unlocking next.




I started with the shield.
I think the next one will be the greatsword, but I still have a day or two to ponder about it. I am also quite intrigued by the hammer, the bows, the torch and the focus, but I don't have enough points to unlock them all, so this is still a bit in the air.
I also plan on going with the Radiant set: I am not the biggest fan of either, but it seems like the Radiant set could potentially be used by my guardian whereas I see no use for CoF 2.0. Although with the helmet being given for 9k points, it really doesn't matter that much since it will take forever (of I ever get there) to unlock it.

I got up to 5k. I've got like 5366 points. I'm still getting the chests thought. Barely log in so I am a bit behind.

I want the daggers, so that I can give them to my ele :)

Aye, although I am not the biggest fan of daggers, the weapons you can use in your main and off-hand seem like a sweet option!

Staff, going for Shield next. Then I don't know. Torch and GS/Sword looks nice but I actually never use them (well I use GS/Sword on my warrior to some extent but they doesn't fit him style wise). Will see.

Shortbow. I'll likely go for Dagger or Staff next.

Took the axe first. I am planning to pick dagger, warhorn and focus next, so I can fully equip my necro with zenith weapons.

By the way, shield was a good pick, imo it is the best looking zenith skin. Too bad I have no char constantly using one (only engineer but he doesn't count - stupid kits :( )

Trident, of course! :P

Seriously now, my first picks are dagger and hammer, since I can't find many regular skins I like for these weapons. I think my 3rd choice will be a staff. I have no idea after that... maybe sword?

I like the look of the shield and bows as well, but I'm not using them constantly on any of my chars.

1st: Dagger

Zenith is the perfect looking caster-type dagger for my female human elementalist aesthetically and conceptually as a focus to channel elemental energy. Pairing them up only adds to the visual splendour.

2nd: Uncertain

In my opinion the Zenith skins have a thematically caster-type appeal to them, as such sort of torn between staff, sceptre and focus. However, I could see the gread sword skin fitting in with my Sylvari Guardian who is currently wearing cultural armour with plans to obtain the Twightlight armour set.

I went with axe first because I transitioned my warrior to using dual axes after the balance patch but couldn't really find any skins I really liked. I will probably grab Dagger next as I use Dagger on both my Ele and my Necro in addition to my Thief.  Probably staff after that.

The bows and the shield are definitely the coolest looking but I don't use those much.

As far as the armors, I will definitely be getting the Radiant gloves because there are plenty of fire themed gloves and I think the Radiant gloves will look good on my Guardian as well as won;t look too bad armoring up a medium armor class.

As far as shoulders I am still torn because they both look amazing. Helm when I get there I will decide because neither of them have a strong appeal to me and I would rather have the option to take both shoulder instead, but I will probably either complete the Radiant set if I pick those shoulders or else take the Inferno helm to pair with the shoulders in a volcanic/terror armor scheme on either my warrior or my necro/elem.

Greatsword for my Mesmer.

Then the Staff also for my Mesmer.

My Mesmer has been making out like a bandit with Wings skins last week and two new Weapon skins this week. :)

I have not yet picked my Zenith weapon since I don't really know who gets what.  I've got 8 characters at 80 now and 4 of them have pretty set outfits.  That said here's a fun little rundown for the value-added of each weapon:

5 Sword has the most users, 5 classes use it as a mainhand and 2 classes can additionally use it as an offhand.
4 Dagger has only 3 classes that use it mainhand but 4 classes that use it offhand.
4 Staff, Scepter, Greatsword and Focus all have 4 classes that use them
3 Warhorn, Axe, Shield and Pistol have 3 classes each (Pistol has 2 mainhand, 3 offhand while axe has 3 main, 2 off)
2 Both Bows, Rifle, Hammer and Mace have a mere 2 classes that use them (though Mace has 2 main, and 1 off)

Daggers first, because the majority of my characters can use daggers.  I only have 2k points, so at the moment I can only pick one more skin, and that's what I'm unsure on.

I was thinking about either the Greatsword, Sword, or Shortbow.  My mesmer would be able to use the greatsword as well as the sword,  while my thief would be able to use the shortbow as well as the sword.  There's also the issue of whether or not sword/sword on a mesmer works for me, but that's a whole other topic to bring up in the Mesmer forums.

I accidentally misclicked and took the scepter skin instead of the sword...
My 80s are a warrior and mesmer, my other characters are thief and ranger.
;_;

I really like the longbow's looks.

I unlocked the daggers at no cost from my points, not planning to unlock anything with my points as I am not impressed by anything in this update. I am pleased that we can now spend those point but I'm keeping them for later hoping we get better skins eventually, otherwise what a waste.

You don't "spend" them.  The points are kept.  You just unlock stuff.

Edit: Got the torch.  Don't use it much, but I already have skins I like on most of my characters.  Next will probably be the dagger or the scepter.

I'm tearing hair trying to decide which to take first.
Long Bow? YES.... but I only got one character that uses it...
Sword then? But long bow apparently has nicer trail effects...

I need to punch a dragon.

Priority from top to bottom:

1. Sceptre (Because there is a terrible lack of nice ones that fit a Guardian)
2. Staff
3. Probably mace
4. GS (Not really liking it, but it'd look nice enough on my Mesmer)
5. Undecided.

8786 points here, got the staff, and dagger so far. Next will probably be greatsword then pistols. Radiant for the armors though, hellfire I'm not sure about, already have the CoF set, maybe it makes that one look better?

Think the Hellfire goes well with the CoF Armor skins - but that's also the problem, had a quick glimpse and so far, those seem the only parts it really mixes well with :(

Wow, just realized that on Monday, we'll have to decide whether we want the radiant Armor Gloves OR the hellfire ones.

So if you hoped for both sets to appease your inner fashionista, have fun going for the 18.000 Achievement Points. Was too good to be true, I guess. Still - what a dick move on ANet's part. 6 damn armor skins in close to 9 months and you won't even get those...
