In Topic: Rares... recommendation what to do with them?

I don't know about this, but does BL kit guarantee an ecto?

BL kits have a 50% rare rate, master and mystic have a 25% rare rate.  Neither guarantees an ecto.

If you're just salvaging the rares to save up ectos for your own use, by all means use whichever you have.  BL kit will give you double the ectos in the long run.

But ... if you're salvaging those rares with the intent to sell the ectos, you will lose money (compared to just selling the rares on the TP) unless you're using Black Lion salvage kits.

Of course, if you're buying gems with gold to get the BL kits, you're probably losing even more gold.  I'm not doing the math for that lol.  BL kits are a once in awhile bonus for me to make a quick few gold, if I happen to get a mystic key and open a lucky chest.

Keep in mind that you'll only profit from salvaging and selling the ectos over just selling the rare itself if you're using Black Lion salvage kits.  I burned 4 gold to test this with master salvage kits.

If you have BL salvage kits: salvage any 70+ rare for ectos.
No BL kits, item sells for less than the price of 1 ecto on TP: use a master kit and salvage it.
No BL kits, item sells for more than the price of 1 ecto on TP: sell item on TP.
Don't care about money loss and want to gamble on mystic forge? Save up rares for chance (12%) for an exotic.

In Topic: Anyone find any great looking axes?

I'm a huge fan of the guild axes.  20s for the skin if your guild has unlocked the guild weaponsmith.

then you start noticing every thread has a "no queue in primetime" or "where did people go" etc etc..

i'm sitting here shocked, wondering.. what happened? it's one thing for 1 or 2 or 3 servers to go from High to Full..

but to literally go from that many FULL servers to 1 being "Full" ??

.......did arenanet ban a buncha accounts or something?! ...what's going on

That would be the Canadians.  It's Thanksgiving weekend up here.

In Topic: Grouping Questions

If you're grouped for a DE, you share all mob tags with your groupmates. I do this all the time for a huge bonus to loot.
