I have to agree, this is excellent advice, especially so for the Cured Thick Leather Squares which are at the cheapest possible price right now.
One of the most profitable materials to craft right now are the Elonian Leather Squares with all the speculations going on to prepare for the Ascended Armor patch. And Elonian Leather Squares need Spool of Thick Elonian Cord which in turn, need Cured Thick Leather Squares and you can only craft one Spool of Thick Elonian Cord per day. Many people are preparing for Ascended Armor by buying lots of Elonian Leather Squares.
Even if you don't care about Ascended armor, you can still make a lot of gold just by crafting and selling Elonian Leather Square itself since the demand now is a lot higher than its crafting cost.
What do you think?
Not too concerned, this is along the same lines as what people were saying about ectos when ascended weapons were coming out, OMG THEY WILL HIT 60s BUY NOW OR BE LEFT BEHIND! it was such a joke, ectos capped out at 42 silver and fell back to 30 within 4 days. With it being gated, which it most likely will be for at least the first month of it being out it will stop any sort of 'run' on the TP for these items, anyone buying them up now is foolhardy and frankly people should have been saving for them.

So an update with zero new and/or interesting content for players like myself who don't do fractal runs.
Good job Arena Net. I'll check back in on your game sometime next year.
Yes, because on a bi-weekly basis you can please the whole crowd at the same time... Meaning people who like to zerg get their zerg content, people who like mini-games get that, people who strictly do Arah get a whole new and exciting path and so forth...
Even though I dislike most updates doesn't mean this is a bad move - there are a ton of people who actually do enjoy fractals, or like I do enjoy them but just don't do them enough simply because it is hopefully was not rewarding enough...
Edit: I did hope for a little more beef to it personally though... iirc, they made the first fractals in like a month or so... now they released three with nothing much to add, aside from some changes that may(?) change some things for fractals...
I am definitely excited for this. I haven't done fractals in a while (I think i only got to fractal level 8 or so) but I've been waiting for the new fractal so I can jump back in with fellow fairly unexperienced fractal ppl!
I'm cautiously optimistic about this and overall I like the sounds of it. I feel bad for a few of my friends/guildmates that were level 45+ since they seem to be getting a kick in the face for their hard work in the past, but for everyone else this sounds like an improvement.
*Mazinger - please go eat a Snickers, you're more bitter sounding than a Siberian dill pickle.
I rather play bejeweled then ever playing candy crush at all. Its the same as candy crush but without the monetization, its just a tile matching game, i've seen hundreds of them online.
Plus, i dont want to spam my friends to get them to play a stupid game.
While I agree with you 100%, bejeweled isn't taking in an estimated $875,382USD per day. Something about Candy Crush makes it irresistible and very profitable regardless of the fact that people like you and I are smart enough to not fall for that crap.
I think as a community we are approaching battered spouse syndrome territory.
No matter how many lackluster updates are released, we stick around hoping this time Anet will treat us right.
Here's the conclusion everyone should internalize: 2 week cycles aren't enough time to produce meaningful content updates. Now the question becomes: Is beating the same stuff with the same stick for a slightly different reason enough to keep playing.
My relationship with GW2 is much happier than most. Sure, we fight sometimes, but the make up part is worth it. Other players might want to consider a divorce. There is so much animosity, I dont know if they would like GW2, even if they did everything their way. I can work through my differences with GW2 for the foreseeable future. So far most of the improvements to GW2 are exactly what we have been asking for. And if they take a step backward, its ok, because they are still moving in the right direction.
From my perspective, GW2 is still a solid game. I'm not the biggest fan of this update, but its not as bad as southsun a year ago. LS, to me, is like pizza or sex. When its good, its really good. But when its bad, its still pretty good.
I have just find one face that suits me well. My first idea was necromancer female inspired by Eve from Guild Wars 1 (henchmen with white hairs) I spent a lot of time in character creator, and after some mix-matching with different faces and sliders, I take up this tweaked face for my necro girl.. And I am happy with her. I just think that for human females are 1 or 2 great looking faces, others looks like Asian-Manga/Dunnohowtocallit/ faces... :-/
