Dude, its pixels on a screen.  Games are a man made construct.  They have no bearing over the realm of the divine.  Their rules exist outside our own, you can kill, loot, pillage, steal, deceive in a game, and it will not have RL consequences. Remember God made man, man made games.  God did not make games.

And I thought it was my comp!  Hopefully they resolve this soon, been using my little bro's ranger to spam traps at the bosses so I can get credit, my screen stops when the boss spawns, skips to like 3-4 frames, then reverts back when hes dead.  Not much of a battle.  Sometimes I just hope my attacks register and that my chest appears, and that my game doesn't crash or my computer doesn't explode.

It would be nice if they fixed it because my little bro knows the world bosses now and keeps asking if he can fight them and actually see their animation and skill set.

This was never this bad a few weeks ago.

In Topic: How do ectos fit into the lore?

Centuries ago heroes, explorers, and hunters alike would enter the underworld to slaughter ghostly scarabs, referred to as Smite Crawlers by humans, repeatedly to obtain this mystical substance called ectoplasm. Most of them were monks with 55 HP who would let the scarabs beat up on them until their own attacks killed them through their holy retribution.  These monks flooded the market with these globs of magical residue, reducing its rarity, and the essence of this ghostly ectoplasm began to infect random objects like a plague.  But it chose only the rarer items to infect apparently, and now after two hundred years, even the most mundane, ugly, and useless rare items can yield this substance, if harvested correctly.

I hate how people tell me playing the TP I can make good money.  I want to make money playing the game, not the in game version of ebay.  Why can no one understand this?  I'm not a MMO stock broker, and I would hate myself if I was.  I am a gamer, I play games.

I really like the game play and environment of GW2, and so do my little bro and his friend who play as alts on my account, but the fact is that it is too expensive to travel and repair and to difficult to recoup the costs.  GW1 stood in complete opposition to they way this game operates.  Low level cap, max stat items available from collectors if you wanted, or cheap to craft.  This game just feels like it is slowly betraying us all.

The games economy shouldn't impact the game itself for the casual player..  Its a game.  You play it.  You don't live it, you don't politicize the economic environment of it.  You just play it, and have FUN(a term that is absent from most games these days). I shouldn't have to worry about something that doesn't impact me, I don't use the trading post, I don't pretend I'm some sort of MMO economist.  Like the OP, I have a full time job and a business to run, I have a family to take care of, and also like the OP, I wish I had some funny money to spend on drugs and hookers.  But I can't.  So I play short bursts of an MMO for fun, level a bit, tinker with my character, and I don't want to have to walk through half a zone to get where I need to go for the next DE, Heart, POI, etc.  I should be able to port for free, like GW1, so I can do what quest or zone I want, when I want, on my terms.  Just because they can't create a stable economy and need to sell gems for gold like a bunch of Chinese scammers so people have to buy 1000+ keys to open their chests doesn't mean I should suffer, or other people with actual responsibilities need to suffer.  This is a fantasy world.  In 8 years or so like GW1, it will fade into the past.  It shouldn't feel like I am living in the real world, I have enough financial responsibility to deal with.
