In Topic: Twilight Assault and Free Trial Week

Kind of surprising that there's so much talk about story -- I kind of stopped paying attention to the GW2 plot about 5 missions into my personal story. The gameplay is great, but the game narrative has always been less than competent.

In Topic: New Celestial Armor: Does it work with the Engineer?

Hmmm, while I do have a rampagers/zerk grenade setup for dungeoneering, I am definitely going to run Celestial for my every day overworld wandering and general play. It's way, way, way better than other MF armor, and facilitates broad skill changes on the fly. Sometimes it's fun to flip between rifle, bombs, pistols, flamethrower, etc etc etc on the go (mostly for fun factor). This is the headache free solution to being competent enough at everything to enjoy it all in one session.

With a 20/20/0/20/10 or 20/20/0/10/20 build and Celestial, I can run everything but grenades without changing gear or retraiting with solid numbers, and to be honest, I'm really, really sick of grenades anyway. :P Those can stay in the dungeon.

So, I see Celestial as a convenience set. If I am playing around with trash in Orr or doing group events or grabbing daily, doing completion, etc, nothing could be better.

In Topic: Talisman!

Heh, I do love Talisman. Thanks for the find! I'm curious about how it works single player.

In Topic: What are you spending your Laurels on?

13 May 2013 - 06:44 PM

Have 5 alts... just going to get an ascended amulet with a utility infusion for each. Don't hope for much more, as that will easily take a year or more.

I may get into fractals for rings, but generally don't like pugging for 5 man content, and far prefer to just play with my GF or close friends when they're on. Therefore, ascended largely isn't for me, so I'm trying to ignore it and be happy without it.

I may pick up Chauncey some time far in the future. Top hats are classy.

In Topic: So what is with these CoF Elitist Mentality?

If you want to run at a super-competitive level, get a dedicated group. Don't PUG and scream at everyone because they haven't spent 10k hours running the same dungeon over and over like you have.

News flash: Other people are not playing the game for your convenience. If you are going to roll random people, don't be a douche -- realize that other people are coming to the game with different expectations of the experience.

The elitism in dungeon PUGs really is pretty disgusting. Ultimately it's going to have to be something ANet fixes though.
