I love the blues and greens. Deep Glacial Teal looks a lot like Midnight Teal.

Hmmm...these events are great...new content is great...more gear variety to treadmill for is great...but, ummm...what about the problems with existing content? What about the lack of mechanical specificity in the info to many traits and skills? What about your sPvP community who were promised e-sport quality and still don't even have an observer mode? What about the problems with crafting being irrelevant now that ascended gear exists? The list goes on and on...

All I'm getting at is the PvE fanbase seems to get all the attention whilst everyone else is a second class player who they'll get to at some indefinite time...after they make more PvE content...

I see that kind of complaint all the time, from both PVE and PVP oriented players. One side is all grumpy because the other is getting some attention from the devs, then the other side gets attention and the first is grumpy. It doesn't need to be that way. Both sides get attention, and neither side gets everything fixed. I'm a PVE player, and I think it's great when PVP gets things fixed. I don't see it as taking away from my interests, and don't understand why anyone would think it does. Can you explain why you feel that way? I'd really like to understand.

Can't people just shut up about nerfing AoE damage?
They have NEVER IN ANY WAY OR FORM said that they will nerf AoE damage.

Yes, they did, in part one of the livestream.

So I'm stuck between two looks and I need an outside perspective on which one looks better.  I've been going back and forth along with dye options all night I think my eyes are going to bleed out.

So without further ado, which one?

The second one, definitely.

Well it kind of sucks to have them actually saying 'great area of effect damage' is part of the intended class design for Elementalists one minute, then 'oh btw we're going to nerf AoE' the next...

Couldn't make their minds up? :mellow:

It'll hit the FotM DD damage sure, but it'll hit us players who prefer staff even worse as practically every staff ability is AoE... Surely they may as well totally rework the entire staff skill set if they decide to pummel AoE into the ground?

This is what Anet does: proclaim something as pretty fantastic, then nerf it into the ground. Let it sit for several months, than give it a few grudging buffs and say it's working as intended. I have to wonder if they've learned anything at all from GW1.
