In Topic: So Andrew Macleod Threw His Jughead Crown In On Ascended and Gear Score / Checks

11 January 2013 - 01:06 AM

First off, Andy is a good guy from an absurdly kind family (his mom is a freakin' saint) who worked extremely hard to get where he is. Paranoia about anything that guy says is totally misguided. And it's McLeod...

Second, so much freakin' fail in this thread... ANet isn't Enron. They're gamers like anyone of us, and they sure as hell aren't in it for the $$!

So give it a rest!

In Topic: 4vs30? No problem

Awesome :) Love that kinda stuff. Very WP! Of course, it requires the other guys to be overconfident, but then I love that "oh shizbit!" moment when they realize that they've been screwing around too long and now they're dead :P

They needed a focus mesmer. Or a ballista. Or A D/D tank elementalist. Or just someone to pull/push you guy off.

My bro and I won a pair of 2v10+s at the SW borderlands "sparta" at the entrance to the supply camp (not in the camp, just at the entrance). His staff necro + ballista and my D/D tanky ele were able to CC enough to lock them down for crazy ballista goodness. Baby aggro ended up losing us the 3rd try :P

In Topic: Why no exotic culturals?

I don't understand why people talk as if TStones have to be bough with RL $$.

Everything that can be bought with cash can be bought with in game gold, and vice-versa. I've bought 4K+ gems with in game gold.

In Topic: Getting game, eng my first choice is it worth it?

There are strong Engineer builds for every game mode, which is why I think it's a top class. The only other class that is as capable in all game modes is the Mesmer (portal and time warp are very handy for dungeons).

In Topic: What is a good, sustained income rate for non-speculative TP trading?

There isn't a single "non-speculative" TP way to make gold.
Should there be one everyone would do it untill it's gone.

QFT, however, they do come and go, as in a method will be worthless one week, hugely profitable for a few days, then worthless again. They're not senseless: they're always based on trading gold for time taken to transform a good into another. So when people cycle off a method, it starts to increase in value again. I've bounced between $$ making methods many times.

As far as the method that was getting me 40g/hour, that definitely dried up (though 10g/hour is still quite doable). Also, after this snowflake business, I'm not sure yet how Anet would view the method, so I've shelved it for the time being, and won't be posting it (if they decide it's ban-able, and I shared it, I get banned :().

I don't think it's against the EULA, as I can't see how it would damage the economy. It's not a crafting loop, like the snowflake was (though it wasn't entirely, either, as it burned through mithril ore, which is why I'm shying away from this again). Nor is it a bug.

As it is, I have enough $$ to buy what I want, so I'm not doing much on the TP anymore. We'll see how Ascended gear changes all that :)
