Something would be nice. There always was a niche in GW1 for this type of competition. Imo just as relevant as any sPVP/WvW  stats.

Been a while.....

Like Quaker noted dual channel is the way to go....2 4g sitcks 1600mhz, prices have been going up

I see that in your part list you have a Micro center price on the PSU....1st that's not really a great price...check out slickdeals.com from time to time for better deals. Second if you have  a Micro Center within driving distance.....w/o question get your  CPU/Mobo combo there. an i-5 3570k goes for 169.99 with $40 off compatible mobo.SO for an i5-3570k and an asrock pro4 you'd only spend 10buck more than what's in your list.

Again check SD for GPU prices. The  GPU you listed was just $176 not too long ago, which is $33 you could spend elsewhere.

Just a final note..the i5-3570k can run GW2 ok so you can afford to shop around for better GPU prices.

i don't think that answers my question, because again, in your case you're getting an exotic back in the RANGE of 70-80. if you were getting a level 80 exotic back putting level 70s in, then sure, your method wins by a landslide. but since you have a 10 level gap that your exotics could fall in, i'm just wondering if that chance is much different than getting something back between two tiers and ONLY level 80. not to mention, your method is roughly twice as expensive per attempt.

i'm not even saying you're wrong, i'm just saying i'd want more concrete evidence. lol. for example, if there are a total of 100 exotic staves between 70-80 and 400 rare and exotic staves combined at level 80, then yeah, your method would be better. but i'd need proof of that, especially since, like i said, yours is more expensive to do. lol.

yeah, that's all i'm saying. but again, your method could be better if there are fewer exotic choices between 70-80 than there are rare/exotic at 80. i just honestly don't know if there are. lol.

also, i used staves in the example because i'm still hunting for The Legend. > :(

Just to see if what you are saying is/was an outcome I threw some exo's into the forge......3 lvl 70 shields and 1 lvl 80......in return I got a lvl 78<---not 80, etched bulwark of accuracy. At 1st I was excited as the name implies as it's the req for the corrupted bulwark...but it's lvl 78 and only sells fo 1g-ish and not the 17ish that the 80 sells for.

So as it turns out throwing the lower level exos isn't as good since you have the chance of non 80 lvl return, which is not part of the same loot table as precursor.

In Topic: when will 660ti price drop?

Just my guess but maybe it will coincide with the release of the 8800 series?

In Topic: How my Ban for Snowflake is different and unjustified!

04 January 2013 - 04:21 PM

I love how most all the arguments try comparing the snowflake jewelry to crafted items using t5 mats. "It's the same!" NO it's not. If it were, then it would require 15 snowflakes and you'd lose them 100% of the time with every salvage (price is irrelevant).

Or..."The market stabilized itself"...yes the market for these few items did, BUT it was not simply contained to these few. It created effects all throughout the market, not to mention the potential effects that the gains allowed.

Also we will hear prices, not average prices, but always end prices. There will a mysterious bypass of using gifts/uglies to obtain snowflakes vs buying directly once prices rose. Ofc this is an attempt to lessen the perceived benefit.

All in all those who tried this a few times didn't get banned. It was the ones that did this A LOT in a relatively short amount of time. That combination of time/number is an indication in itself, that this was exploitative. I have zero sympathy for ppl banned. I however do feel for ppl that had nothing to do with the exploit and had guild leaders etc banned, thus being indirectly effected.
