Hi all.

I'm a bit miffed that this is a gem store finisher, when it is blatantly better than the r80 dragon finisher.

Why was this not the r80 finisher? Gw1 had great rank emotes at the higher tiers. Gw2 is lackluster and personally the only ones I like are Shark and Phoenix.

Seems a bit cheap imo, to make a gem buyable finisher of the same creature type far better than the one you "work" (in the loosest sense of the word - it's so easy now) for.

Because GW2 has awful sPvP that doesn't even compare to GW1.

A-Net knows that, which is why they turned sPvP into a way to farm transmute charges, books and PvE loot for your alts.

Either way the rank fnishers aren't meant to be flashy but rather to show status. That's why they have to be semi-serious imo. Say what you will, but the likes of Llama finishers should never be a representation of PvP rank.

I think it is personal, as some prefer the Rank 80 finisher as it is now...

Though I share your sentiment Andemius... The gem-store dragon looks in my very humble opinion a lot better than the current Rank 80 one - especially since this one is a lackluster compared to the Shark (which is arguable the best one in the game)...

Though if anything, I will not get it... I will spend my gems on a Llama finisher instead, as I missed out on that last ToL due to a crash in our team :P

I post stuff nailed it. GW2 pvp is far away from the awesome GW1 pvp. That's why they made GW2 pvp farm for useful items for  Pvers

Money.

As long as players keep buying gem cards, the devs will keep putting the most interesting stylistic options in the gem store. And the reverse is true, too. It's income.

I understand the sentiment and the desire to voice your dislike of the addition, but this doesn't really lend itself to any sort of discussion other than wanting validation for your complaint. If you want to recreate this thread with the goal to try and create a discussion sparked by this, PM me and we will make that work. Currently, this is more of a blog post than a thread topic.

Why hello there forumite. Would you like me to review some moderation you did not agree with? Never fear! PM is here! Want to be a better poster? Check on this link! And this one!
