Basically it is like this.  Meet Dave.  Dave is an expert bartender who can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about any *tail imaginable or any beer wine or spirit.   But he hasn't worked in six years and lives in his mom's driveway in a 1974 Ford van.

You are moving a couch one day when Dave says oh hey let me help you with that all I do is live in a van and I know a lot about booze but I don't actually do anything.  And he says it with a really nasal lisp.

Then suddenly the heavens open up and a beam of light shines down on Dave and gives him the power to shoot lightning bolts out of his ass.  He uses this amazing new power exactly once to save a kitten from being baked into a pie.  The three largest governments on earth are so taken with Dave they dissolve their laws and pledge allegiance to him.

And Dave decides he likes you so now every soldier in the world is told you are Dave's personal slave.  Dave makes you clip his toenails and pick up his dry cleaning but h also makes you solve world hunger, cure AIDS, end racism and regulate the temperature of the planet.

With each assignment completed everyone talks more about how great Dave is and he becomes king of earth.

But that rug really tied the room together...did it not?

Yeah, I was gonna say... 2k max? No way. I'm hitting smiliar numbers to Lucav under the same circumstances. 2k's on the lower end. :\

You left out a part of the screen, that hit might have just been the last hit of the auto.

I've used Axe on full out glass cannons of all kinds, the first hit has 183 base power it surely does not hit for more than 1.8k-2.2k.

Would you mind holding off posting stuff like this till you can make what you say accurate? I'm saying this for both your benefit and the benefit of the others here who are getting a little tired of comments like this that are disproven within moments of you posting.

I understand you want to have your input and you're trying to help people out, but you're not really helping. :\

#2091867 3 months in and now hate paying for armor repair/travel.

In beta weekends I found this charge to severly handicap my ability to solo areas beyond starting areas. They have reduced the cost for both of these at earlier levels so, at launch, I was willing to give it a chance to grow on me. But now that I am lvl 80 it is again too much. And before you WoW players chime in and say how much more it costs in that game for these two usless expenses, I have never played any MMO but Guildwars... and I expect there is a reason for that.

I work for 8 hrs per day so I can have a house and feed my wife and kids. I love my family and enjoy my house. In a fantasy world I would pay my mortgage, put food on the table and then have the rest of my money to use for hobbies, go on vacation, drugs, hookers... whatever I decide to spend it on. But in reality I have to pay taxes, pay for gas to and from work and pay insurance on my car and my house. I also have to pay a monthly charge on natural gas and electricity in addition to what I use (I live in Canada so I can't just cut it off and not use any).

The point is I get far to much reality in real life. I have yet to find a person that says they enjoy these extra burdens placed on us players. Sure there are those that say they are use to it and have learned to manage their funds but as I play this game more, this involuntary spending of my cash is going to be what drives me back to GW1.

I have my share of usless drops and lagged events but I can easily get past those. I Don't understand how other ex-Guildwars players don't rip Anet a new one for putting so much effort into taking the best aspects of all games on the market but failing to bring along one of the greatest things about their own game and, in fact, draging such a negative function into this game simply because all the other games do it.

Paying for travel and repairing armor sucks. If it wasn't for this I would love this game. I hope people don't reply to this with ways around these chagres like the travel to Lion's Arch through the mists trick or easy places to farm where you don't die. I am against ANY charge for travel and armor repair. It really hurts those of us that like to choose what we spend our money on.
