I would add to this the fact that you only get tier 6 materials in orr. Arenanet has to spread ALL tier mats to ALL zones, otherwise you'll feel stupid not farming in orr because you get the most money out of the materials you get there. What I mean by this is: a lvl1 grub should have the possibility of looting tier 6 mats, and a lvl 80 risen should have the possibility to loot tier 1 mats. Of course the loot tables should differ according to difficulty, but the loot for mats has to be redistributed across all level range mobs.
Everyone from every guild I join seems to be quitting rapidly.
I'm just sharing my findings with the world. The game is boring, and for a game that took this long, I'd expect more than 35 NPCs to fight.
90% of the bosses are humanoids
The ice beast boss in the wayfarer foothills? All the bosses in the tutorials? The Shadow Behemoth? KOL The Giant? The bosses in orr? Shades? All with unique skins Never heard of them? Oh and RISEN are all reskins, yes? You haven't seen al risen then. Play the game properly, stop your propaganda.
You are such a troll.
Add to that the fact you are missing so many mobs in your list. Are you employed by Blizzard or what?
Well the more traits you can put into your character the better it will do in PvE (for example dungeons) and in PvP (WvWvW). I'd buy it in any case, simply because it feels like there would be something important missing.
But your topic question is "do you need the 2nd trait book?" and not the 3rd . Because I am interested if you can just buy Trait book 1 and 3 and skip the 2nd... to save 1 g. Is that possible?
That is a very good question. I am wondering the same thing...
I hope you realised that the T3 cultural armor is not exotic but rare. What does this mean? Crafted armor and god armor from karma vendors have better stats, and you can get those much cheaper. So buying the T3 cultural armor is for PURELY cosmetic reasons. You can get armor much cheaper elsewhere. And yes, the god armor I find very awesome looking on certain characters.
T3 cultural armor is purely cosmetic, so you don't have to grind in order to play the game,as it were. SPVP? Oh right you get all items for free.. WvW? Oh right you are kicked up to lvl 80.
If you want to look awesome, then you need to work for it by playing the game. I think that is a very good design philosophy.
