So, there you have it. Your beloved ArenaNet caved in and listened to all those who wanted a gear treadmill. On top of that you now have a gear gating system too! Soon there will be lots and lots of new content requiring you to have newer and better Ascended gear. This addition clearly shows that ArenaNet doesn't care about their current playerbase (the ones who do not need another carrot on a stick) and which audience they are catering to. Now, enjoy your new gear treadmill MMO with gear gating for all future content!

This is just the beginning. If you think this is bad, you're in for a shock in the next few months. Just wait for the Seraphim gear, Tier 12.

Too bad that I cannot find a way to delete this account. If anyone knows how to, let me know. It's appreciated.

In Topic: Does German version support cases?

Does anyone have an idea who translated the game to German (and other languages). I highly doubt that it was done by a professional country or German native speakers. The word order, structure is way too bad for that.
Another prime example is Kanaxai's Edge being translated as Kanaxai Vorteil in the german version of Guild Wars Factions. How can they make such a huge translation mistake? It's a sword, a blade, an edge and certainly not related to "Having the edge".

There's also a miniature called Mini Seraph Heavy Guard in GW2. Heavy in the sense of heavily armored. Was translated as "Schwerer-Miniatur-Seraphen-W├Ąchter", being worded this way basically says that the miniature itself is heavy. And yes, the abundance of hyphens. They are literally everywhere.

Yes, you're right. I'm just kinda suspicious after all this Ascended gear stuff. I'll stop speculating now.

You clearly didn't read the post I linked with my reply, we were talking about a situation where gear, skill & timing are the same, not just having the same gear. I hate being gear dependent, but I'd rather have better gear than having to depend on say, a skill critting or not.

Also, I come from GW1, played it for about 5-6 years or so. I also played Aion, Ragnarok Online & Lineage 2.
The last three were very gear dependent, so please, next time you judge someone, try to use your brain first ;)
Seem to have misread something there. My apologies.
