#2230710 Bye Bye Magic Find Gear... I'm Kinda Relieved, are you?

Posted Captain Bulldozer on 03 September 2013 - 12:57 AM

I actually think their Magic Find "solution" doesn't go far enough.  Instead of them just removing it from gear, I would honestly prefer it be removed from the game entirely (and the drop rates be made actually reasonable).  I have never seen, nor do I see now a reason that one person should have a better chance at good drops than another person, other than that given by simply playing the game more.  Setting drops to be crappy by default and then making players actively work to not have crappy drops (whether it's through account bound MF, or consumable MF, or just about any other form of MF) is grindy poor design in my opinion.

well that sucks.  Could this be because NCsoft is taking over ANET???
No! People leave, moved, pushed out, laid off and its none our business to know why he left or laid off on what terms. We need to stop all these conspiracy theories to know why he left. Just leave him alone and let him live his life, yes, he has been laid off but this isnt news and none our business to begin with! >.>  Yes,it's sad to see him go but life goes on!

Oh lord:  I just read someone's guess in the forums that it's really an "impostor queen" who has been recently replaced - probably meaning the real queen was kidnapped and we still have to rescue her - and that's so sad it could be true.  Not to mention the tie-in with all the watchwork illusion junk.

That's just dumb enough to work.  :)

I'd feel sorry for anyone dumb enough t try and kidnap the "poor, weak queen" when said queen happens to be a ridiculously powerful, intelligent Mesmer who is guarded by an equally powerful Mesmer. I'd mention Logan too but that idiot is easy to fool.

If they add a scene with someone making an attempt on Jenna I'm hoping they show humanities true strength by her proving she doesn't need to be rescued/protected by any "Heroes".

Watch the entire video.

I watched a significant portion of it.  But its nine minutes+ long and half of it is him talking about how this AH is more complex then WoWs.  Its almost 2 minutes into the video before he actually starts talking about what the video is about.  Frankly, its about 7 minutes too long and is describing a pretty simple concept that most of us have already figured out on our own.

A video is just a bad way to portray this type of information, and a written guide would be much faster and more effective at communicating this info.

The problem with playing the TP is that if you start telling everyone your methods it immediately stops becoming profitable.

I am honestly really torn about the price of T6 mats.  On one hand, it sucks that it's such a grind for so little improvement - like you said.  On the other hand, farming T6 mats would be a great way to solve the problem you mention above:  that other players could actually make some money without just TP PvP.

Of course, if a casual player could make money that way then a hardcore player could still make more...  Maybe that doesn't solve anything.

Anet needs so stick content in zones that will keep casual players in those zones.  Make this content lucrative for casual players and all.  That way they can enjoy staying in zones while getting loot to sell to hardcore players, etc, etc....

To me, this is a casuals game that doesn't really appeal to as many casual players as it should.  Anet needs to help casual players, which in turn will help hardcore players like myself.

Stopped reading right there. What a joke.
What I'm getting from his statements, and I could be reading what I want to into them, so grain of salt: they never said there would be no vertical progression. They intend to pursue vertical progression at a glacial pace, using ascended items, which will be the highest tier for the foreseeable future. They realize that making ascended available solely via FotM was a mistake and intend to make components available throughout the game/from multiple playstyles.

So, in essence, there is grind for the best stats on an extra slow treadmill-anything you do repetitively could be considered grind-but it's "not grind" in that you get to grind how you want to.

That's my perception, anyway. Anyone else care to chime in?

Also, there's nothing to be gained by not reading, the least we can do is let ANet have their say, then respond. You don't want to go all Two Minutes Hate without the best possible appraisal of the situation, do you?

Asking for community feedback was a smart move. My favorite, however, is this question.


No one likes Trahearne. He's a spotlight stealing salad-head and when do we get to kill him?

I dont understand much
But I want to know How you played 1175 Hours On One Character.
And 1172 Across ALL your chracters?

I'm inclined to think that the character time count started on the head start  but for some reason the account time count didn't start until actual release. But thats just a theory?

As to the OP:
Anet has stated a few times since the last update that they're still working on dungeons and are going to be changing how loot and tokens work in a future update to make them a more enjoyable experience (yay!) So thats one thing down :P

I have to say that the fact that the trading post is the best way to make money annoys the --- out of me. I'm someone who really enjoys the exploration side of the game and it bugs me that even though I'm out there experiencing the actual game content, it is people who sit there fiddling with the trading post who are getting the best gear and making the most gold. It ends up feeling as though Anet places little value on actually taking part in all of this content they've implemented >.>

#2087317 More precursors in peoples hands = Prices up?

Posted Thunderhead on 19 November 2012 - 11:35 AM

They will go back up. Logic dictates that the few rich players simply buy the precursors at half or more price then sell them at the original. It's what I would do, and what everyone with an eye for the market would do. The only thing acomplished here is to deepen the pockets of the already rich players out there, essentially handing them more monopoly on the Precursor market.

I see the people in-game whining about Arah being closed and yet when one of the pre-events starts a few minutes later and you ask them to join they refuse. And then the event fails and those people whine about it again.
Using anecdotal evidence as grounds for sweeping generalisations makes for great arguments!

You know, I've no idea where people are getting this "ANet have poor customer service" from, I'm yet to see anything on the web about how bad its been through the company's life, and I for one have had excellent customer service, also the reason they ask for so much info from you is so you can prove its you.

I've known a french gaming company to ask for a picture of your driving licence before they help you, now thats bad customer service, and illegal in some parts of Europe.

Don't jump to conclusion when someone already have legendary means they spent a crap load of cash. I bought my legendary for 40G like a bit after the first week release. Did TP flpping for 80% of my gold and if you farmed Cursed Shore for 1 million karma that should netted you roughly 120-150 gold just by selling the loots that's not even included the rare items you pick up.

I am pretty close to my 2nd and 3rd legendary right now too, just need 400-500k karma for each then I am good to go. The karma is probably the hardest part, the exploration is the annoying part. If you know how to play the market gold is very easy to come by without even touching the gem store or resort to rmt.

For people who didn't play the market when the game was first released and focused on pvp or other things it is hard to say gold is very easy to come by. However, I've been farming for about 2.5 weeks without any help and all I need is my precursor weapon like many other people. The market is much harder to play now and has resulted in me losing alot of gold already, so telling someone to play the market to make gold easily isn't true because it is a gamble now more than ever. The people I know that have a precursor either got lucky with the forge/drop, exploited early in release, or worked the tp in its infancy.
