Farming gold - Am I doing it right?

17 November 2012 - 07:35 PM

Hello.

Long story short: everything in the game is expensive. I'm having a hard time getting a good amount of gold for things like T3 racial armors or now the ascended things. My two crafting jobs aren't at 400, also because it costs lot of money to level them and I kinda get exasperated.

I have a full exotic set.

5 pieces with Superior Rune of the Traveler for 10%, 15%, 25% magic find

1 piece with Superior Rune of the pirate for +10% magic find

1 weapon with superior sigil of luck, for +0.6% magic find per kill up to 25 for 15%

And I also eat +~30% magic find food.

For a total of 75% magic find (or 105% if I eat something get all my kills with my weapon)... I think.

I ran the fractal of the mist yesterday, got only a bunch of green/blue. I spend lot of time with Plinxx or the tunnel at the Cursed Shore, still a bunch of green and lots of blue. I got lucky only once by getting 3 rares and it was because I found a 10% chance for rare item guild banner... But it never happened again, even if I reused the banner.

I know that if I want to be very lucky, I should have > 100% magic find, but I don't know what else to wear or to use to get better things. I never got above 10 gold and I'm tired of being poor lol. My objectives to get the T3 Asura armor, along with now the ascended items (and someday a legendary) seem further everyday. :|

So, anything else I should wear/do? What's the fastest way to earn gold?

Thanks!

Eclipse?

22 October 2012 - 05:57 PM

Hello!

I was walking around Gendarren Field when I noticed something odd in the sky:

So, as you can see, it looks like an eclipse (or the beginning of). Odd enough, my three friends weren't seeing this, I was the only one whose moon was hiding part of the sun. It lasted only a few seconds... Afterward, the moon turned red and continued its way upward:

So, what's your take on this? Is it related to Halloween? Is it some kind of random sky event? Anybody else experienced this?

Event reward now scaled?

Noobish question.

I remember weeks ago, whereas I was around level 40, if I did an event in a 1-17 area like Queensdale, I got something like 63 coppers...Today I did an event in the same area (I'm now 76) and got 1 silver and 40 copper as a reward.

Did they change anything or it was always like that and I just never noticed?

Thanks!

Two questions!

Hello.

Two questions.
1. There is the shatterer, the sunless and I know there is a third ice-themed dragon. My question is: where is the third one?
Dumb me, I forgot to check the wiki before asking. I answered my own question. Still need an answer for number 2 though.

2. Picture below. I remember seeing this cave in the first trailer. Yet I completed every charr zone, from lvl 5 to 70 and I don't recall seeing it at all. Maybe I missed it, but is it in the game at all?

Thank you! :)

Red dye on chest armor => pink?

20 September 2012 - 03:23 PM

Hello.

I posted this on GW2's official forum and got no answer. I would like your opinion/explanation on something.

So I bought the red dye on the trading post a few year days ago, but for an unknown reason, when I apply it on the chest armor part, it gets a different hue, more pinkish.

I don't know if it's supposed to do this, because even the square for the dye appears differently (it's subtle, but the other red squares are more bright), it kinda ruins the whole purpose of using a "red" dye. I didn't try with other color though, but at first glance, red seems to be the most touched by this. I tried it on three different armors and the town clothes: they're all touched by this.

So, is it a bug or...? Any advice?
Thanks!
