Will dungeon armor be obtainable with the new rewards system?

21 January 2013 - 04:42 PM

Does anyone know this for sure yet, one way or the other? There are so few endgame armor skins available to me since I rarely have time for 1.5-2+ hour playsessions at a time, nevermind grinding those for days/weeks.

Anyone miss having true outposts?

When I think back to GW1, I think of the nostalgia factor of Droknar's Forge, Marhan's Grotto (remember the icy floor?), Ascalon City, Kaineng, Yak's Bend, and many of the other outposts. They were memorable, had functional use, and were social.

I miss that in GW2 - there is only one true hub (LA), and the rest of the cities, while very pretty, are empty. Adding to that, the cities are gigantic to the point that 95% of their area has no purpose other than POI and waypoint completion. On the other hand, outposts in GW1 were compact enough that if you had to run from corner to corner, it wasn't a chore and you actually had a REASON for going from one end to another (i.e. not to go up a bunch of steps just to see some NPCs at a 'bar' in LA).

Does anyone else agree? Would love to see the return of outposts besides just the 'generic rectangle with a merchant, armor repairer, and waypoints'

Best sigil for a high precision elementalist?

Which sigils are you guys using for crit builds? My guess would be sigil of strength; unfortunately those are extremely expensive :(

Haven't gotten a rare drop in days

21 November 2012 - 04:24 PM

I have spent on average 2 hours a day for the last week in Orr, Frostgorge, the new explorable zone, and a 60-65 area of a Charr zone. I have not gotten a single rare drop and I use 26% food, 5 travelers runes, and a superior sigil of luck.

What am I doing wrong? I never had this issue before drop rates were supposedly 'fixed' last weekend.  I also don't want to spend an hour trying to find a level 2 fractals group.

There's no way I could have any farming penalties on me, I don't play enough nor do I farm one area for a long time.

Elementalist tips for the fractal dungeons

1. Use a staff.

2. If you are standing in a red circle, dodge. If you don't dodge, it is not going to end well. Seriously, Elementalists don't have enough health or armor to withstand two hits inside a red circle. Insta-deaths are also fairly common. And this was on level 1.

3. Condition removal is extremely helpful.

Feel free to add more.
