Can't you also turn in 1000 shells for the Exotic accessory (the one they gave out during event)? It seems to be about the equal of the tri-forge pendant (different slot, ofc), so I could see prices rise more...who knows.
Was there really that much gold given out? Precursors and 20-slot bags are not money.
lol, really? Last I saw, some went to the highest bidder for 2-300g quickly after rewards were out...and some still are being sold. The transfer of money from people who don't want (more) gems to people who do want them is almost undoubtedly the reason gems are on the rise. I saw 5 dusks, 3 dawns, and 6 legends pinged during the two runs I was able to make through the event. That alone is at least 2800g in new hands. Whether those player keep the precursor (and have their previously saved money free to spend) or sold immediately...I'm willing to bet a large sum that quite a few invested in gems for the future.
That doesn't even touch all the 5-15g awards given to most of the playerbase. Free money and content players likely leading to lots of gems purchased.

Why is removing RNG a good thing? GW1 survived 7+ years being primarily a RNG driven game. I didn't see nearly the amount of bitching there regarding Crystalline Greatswords, Magma shields (pre-inscribable), etc. as I do now.
Legendary = LEGENDARY. I don't want to see everyone walking around with them.
Agreed. Within a couple months, GW2 already has far more legendaries than GW1 had perfect r8 crystallines or magmas in its entire existence.
