On the article:
Chris verified my fears that stronger gear was being released, and that it would be rarer...despite earlier promises of the company.
I SINCERELY hope I'm wrong, but I've decided to just sit the event this weekend out. Already uninstalled for the moment, we'll see if those of you still holding out hope still have it after the weekend. Hopefully I'll find a reason to come back.
Sorry if I didn't word it right, but I'm referring to stats and people worry about getting better with those stats. Also the fact that people are worried about being on par
I'm NOT trying to be snide, rude, or condescending. I am actually asking this question because it's answer greatly impacts your statement about titles... Did you play Guild Wars 1?
The reason I ask... yes. Making a title for 1,000 Ogre kills is actually enough for me to go slaughter 1,000 Ogres. Heck, sometime you should ask my wife about 'pumpkins' (I might have gotten a little crazy for that title). It's something I can work towards, that I can show off, that I can be silly about. But I never HAVE to do it. I never HAVE to kill 1 single ogre to clear out every Risen in Orr. To forge the mighty twilight. To see Zhaitan fall.
Are you a Mark Twain fan? My wife is pregnant, and we've decided on the name 'Sawyer', which has inspired me to dust the book off and give it a read. There's a qoute that I just realized sums up my feelings perfectly:
'...Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do and that Play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do'. Ascendant = Work. Ogre Slayer = Play.
