#2147122 Help Warden Scourejaw run the Prison Quarry

Posted dawdler on 21 January 2013 - 05:53 AM

Not only "bandits", we commit genocide against the Dredge, Skritt, Grawl, whatever just for the fun of it. Not sure why this would stand out...

Imagine if you where sitting in your house watching TV and suddenly someone kick the door in yelling I'M A GUARDIAN, I HAVE COME TO HELP YOU!!! and proceed to kick all your furniture, unscrew your lightbulbs and kill your entire family because they caught aggro.

Hehe I use that on my warrior too.
Me to, as a warrior, great for resing and saving my butt. The healing tree is fun too but less useful except in a few situations.

Back on topic...
"So how long before DE's & Champs are removed ?"
WHAT?
Never-ever would be my answer and I wonder how anyone could even ask this question?!


#2110339 Diminished Returns Account Bound..?

Posted Athena SoF on 07 December 2012 - 04:44 AM

From personal experience there seems to be a 2 hour DR period.  So if you do path 1 on one character and then 2 hours later do path 1 on a different character you should receive 60 tokens on each character.

If you do path 1 back-to-back on two different characters immediately (without waiting 2 hours) you will receive 60 the first time and 30 on your alt, as opposed to 20 if you had repeated the path 1 on the same character.

#2103453 Fractals, Again?

Posted MrCats on 01 December 2012 - 12:36 PM

Anyone else kinda annoyed they put fractals in the monthly requirement again? The WvW stuff i'm ok with, it's 50 kills. You can get that in about 4 hours if you tried hard enough but with the fractals it seems as if i need to spend half that amount just to find a group to get in the dungeon to begin with. I like the dungeon sure, it's different than the rest but could we just have general monthly requirements so thoose who also want the reward but dislike dungeons or WvW don't have to play the parts of the game they didn't want too? Like total events, total enemy kills, distance travelled etc. I understand why they put fractals in for November, it just came out, it was something different.

My experience with the fractals was patchy at best, failed groups, permanent DC, people couldn't get back in, turned into a fail group, try again, lfg with the 50 other people in that little part of Lions Arch etc.

What do you think about it? (The requirement, not fractals themselves)


#2104723 Seems like we'll get a big content patch on January/February

Posted Dark on 02 December 2012 - 04:55 PM

Maybe they will actually do SOMETHING to WvW for once..


#2104139 Where has everyone gone?

Posted Leoveo on 02 December 2012 - 12:11 AM

The new gear grind doesn't really affect me. All i do is wvw and i don't do the fractals which means i don't need this ascension gear. Legendary items to me look ridiculous and i swapped the skin out for a lvl 40 skin. Admittedly this is due to the new ascended level stats on the legendary but other than that i would never have gone for the legendary weapons. Really i don't see what the fuss is about but i came here for pvp so i guess i'm a rarity.

It makes me laugh when people say there's nothing to do when 75% of my server's borderlands are held by enemy factions. It amazes me everytime that a jumping puzzle takes priority until the jumping puzzle entrance is zerged by enemy forces. I just fail to see how PvE is meant to entertain someone for months on end in any situation, then again i never played wow.


#2101182 Dye drop rate now way too low

Posted Traveller on 29 November 2012 - 03:33 PM

I wish they would just make them account bound already, like it was originally imagined. The whole logic of making characters "unique" was pretty moot to begin with since people just buy the same dyes for alts mostly anyway. It's pretty much another goldsink they wanted to add in the game, I guess, or an attempt to make people buy dye packs from the gemstore. While I understand the need for goldsinks, I feel that in this case they are looking the dye system the wrong way.

I would actually buy more dyes if they made it account-wide, since I know every future character benefits from it also.

#2098043 the mistakes Anet admitted

Posted Maarius on 27 November 2012 - 12:55 PM

I just want to point out a few things which were interesting in the latest AMA with Chris Whiteside. They admitted some mistakes here but there is reason for hope that things will get corrected.

Chris about the implementation of Ascended gear only from Fractal-Runs:

Quote

for example full Ascended gear will be introduced over a long period of time and will be earn able through lots of different parts/activities of the game. We had intended for example for the first release of acsended items come from other parts of the game but sadly it did not work out this way. Moving forward this is how it will work however.
...and his solution that this will be corrected in the future updates.

Quote

In regard to gear checks specifically all increases in the power curve will be minimal and therefore there should be no straying from the intended power curve that you see in the game now, in terms of trajectory.

In regard to gated content via gear then i think that this is something we are going to give more thought to. Specifically if the reward at the end of the activity applies to players that are not just looking to do a specific type of content. Note that this statement is somewhat contradictory to the philosophy laid out above if the required items do not drop elsewhere or the ultimate rewards don't either. This is something we are going to fix.

+from another answer:
In retrospect Ascended should have been deployed pre launch and earn able throughout most activities in the game (which is how we are moving forward).

he admitts that they are aware of certain grind situations in the game, no PR talk here... he plays with open cards and states a honest answer + looking for solutions

Quote

I do however feel that we do have to be very careful in regard to progression design turning into grind and i believe there are some instances of this kind of grind that predate the launch of the game. It is for this reason that we are looking to revamp some aspects of the game whilst connecting other parts increase the overall experience of fun in our progression mechanics.


there was this discussion about "minimal grind". A user stated:

Quote

With regard to minimal Grind, how is going from 5 Ectos to 50 Ectos for a piece of gear minimal? 5 T6 items to 250 T6 items, minimal?
Chris answers:

Quote

Good point Nacho. We are currently discussing these particular items and it is fair to say that we don't want have such big hikes in requirements moving forward.
they totally see it the same way we do, and they plan to fix this, just as they fixed the dungeon tokens which now are much less grindier than before.

And just to reiterate, the time in the week when most people log on regularly is not necessarily the same thing as the time when the most people could log on for a special event.
This.

I do nightouts on friday & saturday nights playing the game, hell I stay awake till 5am and I live in Asia. On sundays its just impossible, many of us have work/school to go to on mondays when the other side of the world is playing with TP with the shinies they just collected from the "one-time event".

I still love this game, and just purchased gems for a new character yesterday. But as an Asian who was asleep at the time of the event as I had to wake up early for work, I feel disappointed that I'm treated as a lower class citizen. I am still hoping they'd learn from this and adopt a better strategy for the future events, and would definitely buy more gems to support them. Maybe I wouldn't have been so disappointed if the rewards weren't that great, so I wouldn't feel like I missed something or if they repeated the event one more time for the alternate timezones so I wouldn't feel like left out.

Sorry but if you are 3 months into the game and don't even have full exotic you probably don't really care about how well you perform in PvE.

Now there is nothing wrong with this. I just wouldn't want to have someone who doesn't care in any of my dungeon groups.

Absolutely terrible logic.
