Thank you for your reply as well sir.

In response: Eh, your prerogative I suppose. Here are some confusions/counterarguments I would put forward:

I hate running dungeons so i make gold only by the TP. I just made 300 gold profit with buying/selling (not flipping) one item. In my opinion it's just stupid to pay real money for a tool that does the same as some free tools on the internet.  
1: A few things here.

First, I don't know if there is a difference between buying/selling and "flipping". As far as my vocabulary goes, "flipping" is buying low, selling high. Unless "flipping" is specifically using buy orders and sell orders as opposed to buying at the listed price and selling at the listed price, I know of no difference.

Second, I personally find your 300 gold claim hard to believe. Using buy orders and sell orders... Ok, sure. But since you specifically claimed you weren't "flipping", its harder to believe. I'll leave that one aside though since I wouldn't know.

Finally, I agree that it would be stupid to pay for something that is free somewhere else, but that's not the case. Gold Wars 2 has, from my personal experience with it, a much more advanced, clean, tool rich environment. The idea and rationale behind paying for it is that the time that you save by using Gold Wars 2 over other sites could be used to make real money, thereby paying for itself. If you would rather not pay for it, that's your choice, but bashing a legitimate tool just because you don't like that you would have to pay for it is dishonest. Now if you've payed for it before, and you find it to be no more helpful than free tools, then go on making statements, but support them with comparisons at least. It is your job to prove a claim, not for anyone else to disprove it.

If one is not interested in the TP and the economy of GW2, i would say: pay real money and go flip yourselp a couple of copper coins.

That really sounds like fun......

2: If one was not interested in the TP and the economy of GW2, I highly doubt that they would even know such tools existed, let alone use them or pay for one. If by this you mean to say that if you use this tool, then you must not be truely interested in the economy of Guild Wars 2, then you are over generalizing things. As an analogy, a normal person and a stock broker can both be interested and invested in the stock market, but since the normal person only understands the general principles to making money (buy low, sell high), they use tools to help them out. However, even though the stock broker could manually look through all the stocks every day, he too could benefit from using a stock market tool. The same applies to the TP in game, to a point where the analogy is almost exact. Both newbies and experts of the TP can benefit from this tool, perhaps the experts most of all since they can better interpret the data.

The guys behind goldwars are making the profit here. I find it very strange that they can post there progapanda here.
Flipping is not simple. Making gold takes time and effort.

I mean, have you used the tool? It sounds like you haven't used it, both because you sound disgusted by it (or at least the price) and because you sound like you don't play the TP much. But it really does simplify things.

Furthermore, "propaganda" seems unnecessarily mean. This guy writing his blogs is advertising a tool that he uses as a part of the blog, that's it. He also advertises the use of alternative (read, "free") TP tools. I find it extremely hard to believe that there is an ulterior motive in here somewhere on the part of Gold Wars 2.

To be brutally honest, by bashing Gold Wars 2, you make it seem like either you have some ulterior motive that involves making them look bad, or you're just cranky :P.

In Topic: Why the S/P hate?

07 June 2013 - 04:39 AM

To expand upon what the poster above me has said, it is not only boring, but has been completely analyzed to oblivion. Nothing has changed with the set since the pistol whip nerf, and before that nerf it was extremely popular (as opposed to just useful now) so everyone knows what it does. But recently S/D has been altered by ANet and many people enjoy the more mobile style of play, so its getting much attention. Ask anyone which is the better trash clearer, S/P or S/D, anyone not kidding themselves will say S/P. The only reason its not being "shown love" atm is because there's none to show, it's already been shown.

This kind of applies to D/D and D/P, with the exception that D/P hasn't been changed recently by ANet. People just find the more mobile playstyle more enjoyable and so people are testing the waters with it.

In Topic: Leap of Faith + Blind Exposure still bugged?

21 May 2013 - 07:23 PM

Maybe your right, it may have to do with the cleave nature of it. Other skills like sword 2 blind in an AoE, but they don't cleave.

In Topic: What is each classes "Job" in a dungeon?

07 May 2013 - 09:11 PM

While I'm someone who believes in the "play what you like" philosophy, each profession has certain things they excel at and benefit from specializing in. In my opinion, this is how it goes generally for dungeons:

WARRIOR: Cleave damage, general offensive support
GUARDIAN: Defensive support (this can include keeping aggro via high toughness)
MESMER: Unique offensive support, reflection, distractions
ELEMENTALIST: General boon support, Aoe damage
RANGER: Damage, Healing Spring,
ENGINEER: AoE Damage or Healing
NECROMANCER: Condition or Direct Damage
THEIF: Long duration stealths, stealth rezzing, damage

I'm probably missing something in there but that's my take on it.
