Afraid not. If gear is equal it becomes a matter of skill. You have to act faster than your opponent, outsmart them, play better. Not a matter of sole luck. Something GW2 was all about up until now, as it seems.

But seeing you say something like this tells me that you and the many ex-WoW/Aion/TOR/Rift etc players who QQed about GW2 not having a gear treadmill, are very satisfied with this outcome.
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 ;)

Legendaries are better than Exotics. Have you even seen them?

Legendaries do the same dmg as exotic i swear you people are idiots there only used for the skin and when you transmute the skin on a item that has the states you want they become exotic. The real problem people have with the new gear is that it will be a must have to keep up with new content ot stay at the top gear you can get for stuff like WvW cause its slightly better then exotic i shouldn't even say slightly better is better no if and or buts about it


#2063773 Baby Quaggans Walk the Plank!

Posted Lady Elvea on 05 November 2012 - 11:24 PM

Due to a recent explosion in Quaggan breeding, an effort to cull was made at the Diverse Ledges diving board in Lion's Arch. What better way than sticking to the pirate tradition of making them walk the plank... and help them the rest of the way?

#2037564 Black Lion Chest Halloween R & D Thread

Posted Linfang on 23 October 2012 - 04:07 PM

They make more money if you could outright buy the skins on the market for a good chunk of gems. Sure you might get a few people dropping $50+ into the gemshop to buy keys but yours best off having 1000+ people dropping $5 for a skin.

Am I the only one who couldn't care less about this halloween Greatsword?
I mean it just really doesn't fit in the game, it's way to modern to fit in.. :(

#1989296 Sunrise crafted on Mesmer

Posted Kalanree on 03 October 2012 - 04:25 PM

Good Day everyone,

Today, at around 16:25 GMT +1 I crafted my very own legendary Greatsword Sunrise!


Posted Image

Posted Image

Conclusions:

1. Spatial Surge does NOT change.
2. Mirror Blade DOES change. You throw your Greatsword of Choice instead of the purple one. (Please refer to either the videos or the screenshots a few posts below)
3. Mind Stab does NOT change.
4. Phantasmal Berzerker does NOT change.
5. Illusionary Wave does NOT change.

This happens when you transmute your Legendary:

However:
The Illusions you summon carry your Greatsword of Choice as well. They leave the same Footprints as you do, they have the same Aura as you do. (They are you, after all :) )



EDIT as of 27.10.

Small videos showing a few fights versus Mobs. One is in Orr (Cursed Shore), the other one is in Sparkfly Fen, as the lighting there seems to be much nicer to Sunrise.






EDIT as of 3.11.

Congratulations to Sinnacle for completing his Twilight and instantly uploading a video of it!

#1985400 Long awaited [The Bifrost]... Real World First :) since 23/9

Posted XalkyriezzZ on 02 October 2012 - 04:43 AM

I actually gotten the mats & everything ready since 23/9 on Sunday Night but was denied/delayed due to bugged event @ Strait of Devastation for the Temple of Balthazar Karma vendor to exchange for last remaining Obsidian shards I need. And later on the silly patch that make new Obisidian shards doesnt stack with the old one, Which is offically the World First. Proof: http://www.guildwars...40#entry1960755

In before - No lifer, Big Fat Nerd, Yes, I'm a nolifer + bigfatnerd, but thats what I call Determination & Commitment.

- www.twitch.tv/xalkyriez


Hi, I'm Xalkyrie [SYNAPSE] from Henge of Denvari, unless someone with concrete evidence that they have obtain any legendary weapon eariler than 23/9, I shall hereby proclaim that my Bifrost is the -REAL-In-before-bugged-token- World First. :)


Here are the background knowledge and details /"dairy" on my journey of obtaining [The Bifrost]: (long post ahead)

I'd had been so much looking forward to this game since its beta period, especially after since BWE3, I quitted D3 shortly (I shall not explain why) and focusing/studying/reading up on GW2.
I played during beta and therefore I do have early knowlegde of the game over most people. I knew that legendary would be hard to obtain and require lots of time and commitment, thus it would be one of my foremost goal in game.

During Beta, making of a legendary is slightly easier before Arenanet decided to change them before game went live and making it harder(via more mats req). But it has not deter us from finding out the new recipe, credit to those who spent time&effort to find them out.(guru forumers) ^^

Before deciding on which weapon should I make, its gonna depend on what class/profession I play, and since I've been playing an Elementalist and loved it during BWE2&3 and due to higher skill cap req, I've decided to make Elementalist during live too. And since I feel that staff is the most overall weapon choice for PvE/WvW, I chose to make it as my target as Legendary.

---
Aug 25th: Headstart for those Preorder peeps, of coz I'm one of them! IIRC, I'd reach level80 with few friends one day before the game offically released, thats about 50-55hrs gameplay. Definitely not the fastest but yeah..

Since I'm making Staff, I know that my crafting would need to be Cooking/Artificers and therefore shortly after level 80 I max those 2 crafts. I got myself a fullset of yellow MF gear crafted by my friend and made an exotic MF staff for myself too since I knows that these will help in a long run of grinding/farming!

Okay heres the breakdown of mats and how I got them:

*DISCLAIMER**, I did not buy any Gem and convert them to gold at any time, neither do I buy any gold from anybody/goldseller. Only Me & Myself got access to MY account. (maybe GM of Anet too) If you see me move, it means I am controlling it. In another words, I don't bot neither do I get other to play for me.*

$GOLDs$ -  As I mentioned, I do know about putting 4x kv70+ rares/exotics in mystic forget for a chance of exotics/legendary base. Note that I didn't try any of 4x rares as I don't like gambling.. I play the mystic forge !! rawr~ I only put in 4x 70+ EXOTICS for a confirmed lv80 exotics, price of a 70+ exotics during the 1st-2nd week of the game was like 20s-40s buy order(note* I only do Staff), lv80 price @ around 4g and some special skin could fetch higher price, its profit no matter whether legendary base came out for me or not. I didn't count but I believe I've at least made 50+ exotics out of it until like 3rd week or so when each lv70+ cost 50s or more I stopped.
(I am fully aware of my shitluck and therefore I did not get my legendary base myself, infact I got mine from Trading Post like on the 1st week for 26g2s buy order when most people did not have that kind of money)
Posted Image
please note that the screenshot was taken on 25/9, so you minus 14days ago.

I don't really consider myself as TP master but I do "do good" in playing TP, one of the most profit items was Platinum Doubloon, which was 1.7s+ when the TP was working, i bought about 60+ and put in bank and TOTALLY forgot about it until few days ago before I gather up all my mats... ^^.

Secondly was that Gift of Energy that was req for Gift of Bifrost previously, on beta it req 250 gossamer scrap and that I also bought quite a few when it was around 2.8sBO, soon after someone bought the recipe, it was discovered to have changed to crystalline dust series.. and thus it all became profits ^_^v. I also did some flipping of minor stuff here and there.

Of course, those money that I made aren't really enough for all the mats req, I could afford my own 100x Icy runestone, my base weapon, 2x 10g gift recipe about 80% of t6 bluemats and about 400 ectos(about 200+ is farmed from karma, others is bought with gold from TP), but the remaining was borrow/pool by group of friends of mine in game and some guildies.

%KARMAs% - Well, I farmed my karma mostly from Cursed Shore Dynamic Events like a boss with a group!! Members of HoD most probably seen me before at CS during oceanic time at those events ^^. I got a lot of Karma from WvW too while farming badges, especially those match-up where we vs-ing good tier server, they provide lots of back and forth action and thus alot of karma and invaders to kill for badges! PvP defence of Keep/castle is awesome :)

I gained about on average 7-8k per hr w/o booster and 50% more with boosters, I did not use boosters until the last 3days of sick farming which at that point I had my clovers ready and going for my last 525k Karma.
I would probably write up a guide sometime on Karma Farming after awhile.

(*NOTE* farming in CS is a !@#$ing tedious and boring, I literally windowed mode my GW2 and watch Detective Conan anime on my other half of screen.. watched over 170+ episodes while doing it.. tell me about it,in order to maximise my karma gain per hr, I did not just semi afk @ either 3 of the WP, I opened my map and did WP-ing to nearest WP and do all events + those that need to be activated, I did them too. I also wrote this stuff at the very last 2days of Karma farming! YES I wrote all this before I actually got it! zomg hax)

Gift of Mastery:

Bloodstone Shard - I guess thats never a issues with the requirement of 100% map completion.

250 Obsidian Shards - This is my last of last items required for this whole process. Check out above on how I farmed my karma. Beware of bugged event..... ...... .... ..

Gifts of Exploration - Did them shortly after reaching the level cap, got mine like 2days after Guildy Slin aka misterslin got his world 1st. Not hard and its fun!

Gift of Battle - 500 WvW badges. Did I mention I was from [Synapse] ? lol Our guild rockz and especially most of the match-up we vs-ing are good tier server, they provide lots of back and forth action and thus alot badges! And I also did my daily JumpPuzzle of Borderlands almost everyday if possible on last few hours of matchup where opposite server has mostly given up.

Gift of Fortune:

Gift of Magic- Just cost some golds (Check above on Gold) and some pooling of mats from my guildies/friends for the last bit. (about 5-10% only)

Gift of Might- Same as Gift of Magic

250 Globs of Ectoplasm - Got some from the last bit of my gold and remaining from friends/guildies. Used most that I've farmed against the ultimate Mystic Clovers Boss.

77 Mystic Clovers - Ultimate boss of this whole process, I did about 23x the 10recipe, I lucked out my last 3tries as my ecto was used up, my result can be viewed at one of the post here http://www.guildwars...utcome-changed/

Gift of Bifrost:

Gift of Enegry - Changed from previously cloths to now dust, easier &amp; cheaper <3,

Gift of Color - I knew this recipe req Unidentified Dyes so I kept all my Unid dyes from start. I also reminds my friends to keep them for me althought some doesn't even give a shit but I still love them <3

100 Icy runestone: Check above how I got my gold above

Sigil of nullification: just buy from TP.

The Legend of Rage: Got it from TP via buy order of 26g2s during 1st week of working TP period where not much people have that kind of amount of gold which I did.


Special Thanks

Same here. Being a huge fan of everything related to Jormag, just gotta get my hands on this.
Chances are it results in this though: http://www.gw2db.com...the-hydromancer
It's basically just a shard of ice. There's a few on the TP too.

It looks like the Mystic Forge/Other Weapons page was updated to include Jormag's Breath of Ice! 1 scroll, 50 coins, 250 orich sword blades, 20 glacial 'lonestones' (supposed to be lodestone, but it's typo'd in the game) 100 sword blades and 20 corrupted lodestones. That... is a lot of orich. Dx

Edit: The Wiki was since updated to correct the recipe with 20 Corrupted Lodestones, not 20 Glacial Lonestones, and the number of Orich Sword Blades has been reduced to 100.
