Just curious. I want to use them for ascended accessories but my friends tell me it's waste of ectos to do that since we're already doing guild missions every week and we'll get them eventually anyway.

I spent 100 laurels getting an amulet and two rings for my main character (got my accessories with commendations, because they're waaaay too expensive with laurels). Since then I've been putting all of my laurels into heavy material bags. Even if it's only 3 t6 mats per day, that's steady progress towards my legendary.

Been using them on ascended earrings and amulets for my two most-played characters. But now that this is done, I'm just saving them up for... whatever :P

To be honest, I use my laurels to get t6 mats, and then sell them on the TP... I get roughly 1g per laurel... That was how I got my Golden title.

So I tried this today. I spent 75 laurels and got 40 gold return. It actually averages 50-60 silver more than it does 1 gold per laurel.

Then I spent 1.3 million karma on orrian boxes. Let's just say there's no money in there and I got a million karma returned. I didn't bother spending that. I got a grand total of 5 gold out of that.

Currently? I'm spending my Laurels on UnID Dyes, and then selling said UnID dyes for money that's going into my first Cultural set, after that it'll probably either be the same system, or switching to Material Bags for a future (4 years off at my rate) Legendary.

It's possible they did it before the Jubilee patch since prices of mats seems to have really dropped as a result of how easy it is to farm them in the lower level gauntlet thing.

Laurels actually disappear surprisingly quickly once you start to outfit a few toons with an ascended amulet and two ascended rings. It's a 100 laurels per set. I always wish to have more laurels.

Because you don't need to pug for laurels. It's surprisingly hard to find a good Fractals team these days.

If I see one more berserker warrior think he's immortal and "It's only level 10!" and try to solo all the dredge, I will never party with a warrior again.

After buying a couple of amulets & infusions for two characters, I'm just saving them now. I'm not sure why.  I'm at 125 or so.

I probably should spend them on other trinkets because they might be made obsolete by a new path to better gear.

Saving Laurels, my main has full ascended jewelery & backpack spending laurels for alts makes no sense so i will wait and see my guess would be that they will be useful when ascended weapons/armor shows up !
Anyway game is set in certain way that doesn`t do anything to promote playing with alts on contrary does everything to prevent you from that, so pick one and stuck with it, everything you earn will be used for that character anyway !!!

I used mine to outfit my main with Ascended Rings and Amulet, and upgrades for each.  The rest are in my wallet.  I suspect they'll eventually release more items to spend them on, at which point I'll be happy to have saved as many as I could.

First I got ascended rings, since I rarely got to run Fractals - and I don't like it too much. Then I saved up for Chauncy von Snuffles. After that I got a lot of WvW badges from AP chests, so I got my alt warrior ascended gear too, since it was a good deal to use badges + laurels. Now I don't know what I'll get next, I have about 30+.
