Resource for Weapon Skins

02 November 2012 - 06:01 PM

I'm hoping I selected the proper forum for this.

While deciding on the armor skins that I want to use on my 80 thief I came across a few good resources (mostly linked from forums here or reddit) that show what full armor sets look like on various sexes/races.  One example that I used quite a bit is gw2armor.

What I'd like to know is if anyone has found a similar resource for weapon skins, particularly daggers.  I saw a thread in the forum with several suggestions from different folks, which was a good start.  What I'm really looking for is a way to quickly view a lot of dagger skins so that I can make note of which ones to discount and which to preview in-game.

Also, can anyone confirm whether or not weapon effects are displayed in the preview pane?  I don't believe they are, but I also haven't had a dagger with any real effects yet.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Blackgate - Looking for Active Guild

I believe I've found a guild and am no longer looking.

Since it appears that I'm unable to delete the thread, I'm editing it accordingly.

Thanks,

Cursed Shore Farming with Thief

09 October 2012 - 05:23 PM

I recently reached 80 with my thief and am looking to start farming in Orr for Gold, Rares, and Karma.  I'm having some trouble, so I thought I'd reach out and try to get some advice on how best to proceed.

My most immediate problem is that in Dynamic Events, especiallly the ones where you have to protect an outpost from waves of enemies, I can't seem to tag the majority of mobs.  The veterans and champoions live long enough for me to do enough damage to, but the normal fodder die without giving me any loot or XP.

At the moment, I'm running with the build that I leveled with.  I used the Condition (Death Blossom) variant of Minion's Thief Build, but with the Short Bow in my swap slot instead of P/P. ( http://www.guildwars...le-thief-build/ )  It worked great for leveling, and I have no problems while roaming the map.  I'm just not sure whether or not there is a build that is more efficient at tagging groups of mobs.

There's also the very real possibility that I'm doing it wrong.  Cluster Bomb just feels too slow - it takes a split second to fire, plus it has to travel.  In that time, most of the enemies are usually already dead.  I also tried setting full caltrops down where they spawn, but my results haven't been much better.  I haven't tried Death Blossom, I'm not exactly sure how tagging works, and the enemies might not live long enough for the bleeds to tick.  In fights where spawns move, I often don't have enough time to get into DB range of an enemy before it drops, so SB feels like my best bet.

Dagger Storm is effective, but it obviously can't be used as often as initiative-based attacks.

I'm also unsure whether or not my gear factors into this.  I don't have any level 80 epics yet, I'm running around in what I've been able to find or buy cheaply from the TP.  Mostly Rampager with a piece or two of Carrion for Vitality.  Trinkets are Coral.  I'm not running any runes because I wasn't sure how long I'd have the gear before replacing it with higher tier gear, and I didn't want to waste a lot of gold buying them.  I wanted to use Magic Find runes anyway, so they wouldn't be providing too much of a boost to my stats.

Any suggestions or information would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tiny Totems, Tiny Fangs, Tiny Claws, and Bone Chips

01 September 2012 - 07:47 PM

I'm looking for a decent place to farm Tiny Totems, Tiny Fangs, Tiny Claws, and Bone Chips.

I did a search on the forum and came up with some general ideas (Humanoids might drop this, animals might drop that), but nothing terribly specific.  One location I tried from a post gave me some blood, but not any of the others I'm looking for.

I know that bags which drop off of humanoids have a chance to give crafting materials, but I'd rather not go farming monsters for a chance of a chance of getting something I can use.  Especially since I've already farmed Bandithaunt Caverns for a couple hours for Jute and Leather, and hadn't received enough of any of the fine mateirals that I didn't still have to farm for them.

I know small scales were pretty easy, got them off of the Baraccudas in Lake Delavan.  So was Glittering Dust, the Ascalon City Ruins are full of ghosts that drop them.  Especially if you get an event!  Weak Blood from Harpies at Altar's Windings, and Venom Sacs from the bees in Shaemoor Fields during the event where the bull goes crazy.

I just haven't yet found a mob type that reliably drops any of the three of these, so I was looking to see if anyone else had.

Farming Rawhide Leather Scraps

29 August 2012 - 04:58 PM

I apologize for creating a new thread for this, but I didn't want to hijack the most closely related thread I found (same question, but in relation to Jute).

Where are people having good luck gathering a lot of Rawhide Leather Scraps?

I've been running the Bandithaunt Caverns in Queensdale.  While it gives me Leather Scraps, it certainly feels like I get significantly more Jute.  This is still useful as a Leatherworker, but what I really need is a place to farm Rawhide Leather Scraps.

Yes, I am salvaging anything that even looks like it might yield a crafting resource.

I have no problem investing time into farming, I just want to make sure that I'm in the right place for the resource I need.  If there is somewhere better for Leather, I'd love some input.

Thanks.
