In Topic: Equipment Preview Status

I love how within the course of a day they went from saying "previewing armor that wasn't for your profession wasn't intended because it's buggy" to "we're just touching it up." Oh Anet you're doing a wonderful job with this game... [/sarcasm]

In Topic: Question about AC weapon skins.

It glows like the NPC's at night. However, it's kind of buggy and doesn't always work.

In Topic: Why is mesmer "best support class" in the game

23 September 2012 - 01:24 PM

Mesmer support comes purely out of clones. The load that clones take off the team's back is insanely overlooked. Not to mention the crowd control with a Greatsword + Ethereal Fields (Confusion combos) is absurdly good.

Considering that when you trade gems for gold, you're actually trading your gems for another player's gold (you are not buying gold from ANet, people)...please explain to me how this argument even makes sense. You cannot trade gems for gold if players do not have gold that they're willing to give up for gems, after all.

You pay Anet real money for gems.
You take the gems and convert them into gold.
Anet profits.

then

People convert their gold into gems.
Conversion rate drops.
You pay Anet real money for even more gems.
You take the gems and convert them into gold.
Anet profits.

The conversion rate is so low now they can rake in dough from people buying gems for gold. Before you say "well you don't have to do that" or "nobody will do that" go find the guy in the Legendary thread who dumped $1200 into the gem store.

For me, it's the principle. Anything profitable is immediately getting hit by Anet's nerfgun and it's become pretty obvious the gem store is playing a role in that. What incentive do I have to grind out a Legendary or a Dungeon reward for months when I could spend those months fully geared, enjoying my favorite aspect of the game in WvW? If Anet nerfs everything in sight, there's no way in my right mind I'm gonna sit down and say "I'm gonna spend x months purely grinding in my free time to get a shiny skin." Making something hard to get is one thing, making something a totally obnoxious grind when you advertised the game as "grind free" (You can't take the grind out of MMOs but don't advertise like you can) is a completely different thing.

Keep in mind, I'm in not in any rush to get anything special.
