In Topic: World Transfer Sale

12 October 2013 - 02:40 PM

WTF cutting price to transfer to servers that allready have 1+ hour wvw queues? Do they even know what is going on? Get a damn clue and start doing something for those of us sticking with the same server since prelaunch.

Hi

I'm 90% of the way there on making Twilight. For me, what gives it its worth is the pursuit of it. To quote a great man, "Things that come too easily, we value too little".

If I was to just have bought it...I would forever be reminded that someone ELSE did all the work and all I got was this shiny sword to run around with that wasn't really mine.

I took the time to craft rare swords, forge them and get Dusk to come out. Was I incredibly lucky? Sure, but I will always remember the night that it happened.

I say to you, don't buy it. Earn it. You will be so much happier.





And if you never ever get it, you will still have the memories of trying.

Just to make this absolutely certain, there is no way I am paying that much money for an item when I am not even sure I'll be playing for another year. Its the equivalent of 2 months of rent for me.

But, if I where to buy it with gold and not *earn* it like people like to state, let me just say that the very real money used to buy an item was actually earned in its own right - I might not have gone through various caves and/or slain people from other countries for it, but I bloody well worked my ass off for it, so the accomplishment is there - for me at least.

This will be the last comment for me on the thread, as I allready got my answer in the 2nd reply or so - but as allready stated, thanks for the replies and input, allways fun to see how people oppinions differ on such matters.

Not to mention the big elephant in the room, no matter how much money you're willing to throw at your screen you still have to go and get the Gift of Exploration and the Gift of Thorns which sounds like it would be an issue for someone who hates PvE as much as you do. So you're going to be stuck doing some content PvE content regardless

Eh, no I wouldnt - I would be buying the actual legendary off the tradehouse, not the mats for it. Besides I allready have 2xgift of exploration, back from the first month of release - funny enough it was most likely during my time spend getting 100% completion I decided the pve content was utter rubbish ^^

not suggesting you do that, because buying a legendary defeats the purpose, but it is really cheap comparatively.

Just out of curiosity, how exactly would buying a legendary defeat the purpose of it? The only purpose I would ever consider buying one would be for the fun and enjoyment it would bring me.

Do you like the game so much you are willing to spend that amount of money? If yes, do it. If not, don't.

This, absolutely this. Doesnt matter what anyone else says/feels about it - all that matters is if its worth it for you. If I knew for certain I would still be playing the game a year from now, I'd buy the bow for sure.

And thanks for the various oppinions on the matter.
