The event reward doesn't update but the purple numbers that flash on your screen when you complete an event (along with the experience and gold etc) will represent the correct, increased amount of karma that you earned.
The real problem is that there are no cosmetic rewards that actually make a statement.
- Got a dungeon armor? You could just have WP-zerged it or exploited, or even bought your way to those tokens.
- Tier 3 cultural? You could have bought gold for real money.
- Legendary? Nothing legendary about this except the amount of grind required to obtain one, and the RNG luck factor associated with it. Either that or you just bought it with real money, same as T3.
Cosmetic rewards is not about having a cool-ass armor, it's about what achievement you have to perform to attain that armor. Currently in GW2 there is nothing at all that is challenging, and thus, the cosmetic armor as progression can never work. Really, the only cosmetics I would actually be impressed by in GW2 is if someone would have a full set of Fractal weapons, but again that comes down to RNG as well.
Cosmetic progression does not lie in the cosmetics itself, it lies in what message those cosmetics convey.
Hahahahaha stop posting.
Why does it matter what you think of other peoples armour or weapons?
