#2228821 So if you don't have the map all discovered you're screwed for events?

Posted Kurosov on 25 August 2013 - 09:47 PM

How is this even a question or an issue?

If you haven't been somewhere something happens then you can't do said thing till you get there.

It's not like they can contain all content to one starting area to be "fair" as we have 5 of them.

Easiest way now is to farm champs and use the money to buy them. In the end it is easier to farm something profitable and use the money to buy what you need than it is to farm something less profitable in the hope a few of these will drop, as odds are they won't. Then there's the joy of diminishing returns to contend with. I saved these up as I found them over the last year not knowing what they might be good for and never had more than 5 of them. I am a heavy farmer with 5 level 80s all leveled through PVE or crafting. Do the math.

I know this doesn't answer your question but I trust you can see that return over time is better for the one option than the other.

#2227109 [x-post] The Death of Alts

Posted Koral de Kryta on 17 August 2013 - 01:38 AM

I have 3 level 80 alts that I play with; Elementalist, Thief and Guardian (I wanted one of each armor type/class). Although I do play with my Ele/Thief more often, I still do play with my guardian enough to consider it worthwhile to have leveled her.

Although it is annoying having for example my Ele at award level 31 in Fractals, and my Thief 6, I also think it makes you practice and spend time with these alternate characters, the same way as you did with your original one. All Anet are doing is basically FORCING you to be a better example of your class by making you work on alts, just like you did your main character.

True things that you all know but never acknowledge:

1) Other people play the game, A-net does not have a duty to cater specifically to your needs.

2) Some of those people (See: The majority) are hurt by the negative impact on the economy that reward flooding creates.

3) If you can get a potentially unlimited number of laurels (or tokens, or whatever) per day (limited only by the number of characters you have) then the value of the things that can be bought by laurels decreases. This includes T6 materials, armour, rings, amulets, miniatures and so on.

4) Those players who have jobs and such can't play 24 hours a day.

5) This means that when they acquire in game items their value has been hugely diminished by those players who can play 24 hours a day.

6) Things start to suck for them, they then leave. True things about them leaving include: They have disposable income and are the ones sustaining the game, they are the ones you want to sell your items to, and they make up the majority of the player base.

7) As a side note Fractals are obviously locked that way because your 1000 hours of Warrior play doesn't translate to 1000 hours of Ranger play, I seriously do not fancy getting a party together only to find that someone in the party for a lvl 48 fractal has just rolled their Ranger and has no clue what to do with it.

You all know full well why the game is designed this way, I can only assume you are being intentionally difficult and actively trying not to see the point; if you didn't know then my apologies and I hope the above helps.

It's true though that people who complain about GW2 being unfriendly to alts are whining because they have to work twice as hard for their rewards.

If you ask me, one should expect that.

People complain about what a pain it is to gear their alts to the same level as their main that I wonder if an alt...........is actually being mistreated as another main.

The bulk of your work should go to your main.

Your alt can do the same things, but if you don't find the game fun as you use a different playstyle to complete content, then it's prob time to step away until such time when it DOES become fun.

After all, if you roll an alternate than that should imply that you enjoy the game. If you're whining that you have to work twice as hard then you are rolling an alt for the wrong reason.

Sorry but it's true.

Alts should be leveled and geared in moderation. It's an alternate. Not your main. Quit treating your alternates like another main is my advice.
They'll all get to the same place soon enough.

If it feels like work, then stop and take a break.

My question is what's the rush? Why do people want to gear alts so fast?

That whole process should be the fun part IMO. You're using a diff class, playing a diff way.

So like, what......are people late for the next raid?

Oh wait....... ;)

And concerning dungeons, they can be done in rares. Cmon now........

Again, what's the rush do get everyone in exotics? Take your time with it. Enjoy the ride.

#2225833 Champions farm at Frostgorge Sound

Posted Rytlock Bigpaw on 12 August 2013 - 01:12 PM

If this isn´t the right place to post, please can any moderator change it to the right place? Thank you!

Hello all.

This is a quick guide to show all the champions farm at Frostgorge Sound.

The general start in this route farm is near Drakkar Waypoint (rigth in the north west corner of the map). Here you kill 3 champions as you can see in this image : http://postimg.org/image/y7n4fzwp1/ . Starting by the fish (letter A), then you go to letter B to kill the kodan. Always check the black circle cause the kodan roams around, if you didn´t find it go back to letter B cause he spwans there. After the kodan you have "dog" (it looks like a dog) with is number C.

Well basically most servers only do this 3 bosses, but there is more. On Desolation we do at least 6 bosses each run and sometimes we can manage to do 10 (due to the aetherblade event and quaggan).


So after the dog we have the wurm (letter D). You don´t need to use the waypoint to the wurm. Just swim to it. After you kill the wurm get the waypoint to Earthshake Waypoint.


As you can see in the image above run to the location with the E letter to kill the troll. Keep in mind if your computer is slow you might wanna skip this champion.

After the troll get the waypoint to Skyheight Steading Waypoint.


Kill the drake (letter F). Most runs will have only 6 champions (from A to F). But in some runs the quaggan champion also spw (black circle). And while this story live is quicking (queen´s Jubile, you also have the Aetherblade event). The aetherblade event spws 2 champions. Then after that event, another event will appear with another more powerfull champion that rewards a chest. The Aetherblade event is the red circle in the map.

After you are donne here (drake, aetherblade or quaggan) go back do Drakkar waypoint to kill the fish and start the route again.

Medium profit per hour is around 5 gold.

Keep in mind these farms can change from server to server.

#2225327 [PSA] Karma Spender Daily Bugged

Posted Graka on 09 August 2013 - 04:36 PM

The amount of whining about this both here and on the official forums is beyond amazing to me. This is a one point achivement, which no one can do in the game, NO ONE. You will not be behind anyone else, no one has an advantage over you cause they got it and you didn't. Its a simple mistake which they are working to rectify, the fact people are losing their mind over 1 achivement point that the entire community can't get tells me more about the state of the people complaining than it does about Anet.

For those even saying that it should have been tested and never should have happened. Are you seriously delusional? Ever tried writing computer programming and making sure not even 1 mistake happens before it goes live? It never happens, this is why there are bug fixes and patches for everything, and before you try to say Well in the good ol days of cartriges there wasnt any bugs, thats not true there were plenty, most people call them secret rooms and such now. And PTR's arnt a solution, tons of MMO's run PTR's and you know what happens, when the game patch goes live, oh look tons of bugs and things that need to be fixed.

This is just ridiculous that this is being blown out of proportion as if its the end of Guild Wars 2.

#2224811 Queen's Jubilee - Patch Notes (6 August 2013)

Posted Whiteone on 06 August 2013 - 11:57 PM

Am I the only one who's fallen in love with the Queen's Gauntlet? This is what GW2 has been missing since release. Proper boss mechanics that force you to actually play your class and use the combat system aka dance&dodge. Finally some proper boss skills that aren't just "onehit lol l2dodge".

I mean okay, at some points this is still pretty much a damage race. But for me this is clearly the highlight of this event. I didn't watch or read anything beforehand and just beat Liadri on my guardian alt. At some point I had to rethink, swap skills and even buy a weapon specifically for one encounter.
And damn, that was fun. As someone said in this thread, I am now looking forward to throwing in some gambits next or trying it with other classes.

I am so hoping Anet brings us more in this style.Demanding encounters for players looking for a challenge in pve. Not for farming or shiny stuff but for the sake of competition against others or yourself.

#2223965 [Answered] Where to "Event" level 70-80?

Posted Loperdos on 03 August 2013 - 02:02 PM

I've actually found Fireheart Rise to be a pretty decent area to level from 70-80 (even though its a 60-70 zone).  The event(s) right around CoF respawn relatively quickly and there are quite a few people there most of the time on my server, Sanctum of Rall.

#2221831 Sanctum Sprint and why the GW2 community is truly awesome

Posted DarkGhostGizmoXx on 24 July 2013 - 06:47 PM

I tired Sanctum Sprint for the first time yesterday...I spent ages on it (coming 11 or 12 every time) and my group kept checking that everyone had the achievement. I felt too bad to tell them I didn't, because it would mean them waiting for AGES for me to get to to the finish line...I still had a great time though, the race is really fun, and I don't care about getting the achievement.

The best part was when someone joined who was just as bad as me, we had so much fun at the back...I couldn't control my char at one point because I was laughing so much at how much we kept falling off! (Seriously, I swear there's some kind of magnet that attracts me off the side of the track) :D

#2221459 What's your GW2 Net Worth?

Posted Illein on 23 July 2013 - 03:44 PM

Not enough to be done, yet too much to complain. I'd say across all characters my account's net worth is probably around ~ Wait, you're weeding out the poors to only hack profitable accounts, aren't you?

So not gonna tell you!

#2221416 GW2 guru NOT one of the top ten sites for GW2 players?

That's probably because most of the constructive complaints on the official forums are locked/ deleted and users banned.

I'm not saying Guru is bad, after all, I use the forums daily, but I don't think it appeals to the majority of people who play GW2.

While the official forms are definitely a lot more harsh, they don't outright stop discussion and criticism of the game.  Only when things are needlessly hostile do they tend to lock topics or edit posts and that's because it just dissolves into nothing but childish bickering.  Sadly, that's exactly what Guru has become.  People aren't more open or constructive here, just a lot more negative, jaded and often aggressive. Guru used to be the number one forum for discussing Guild Wars, but the community has become so unfriendly and bitter that there's simply just much better places to go.

And don't mistake that for meaning I expect everyone to love the game and praise everything about it, there's certainly plenty of room for criticism, just not to the overwhelming extent you see here.

#2219619 GW2 guru NOT one of the top ten sites for GW2 players?

Posted davadude on 16 July 2013 - 12:11 AM

The reasons are simple:
  • The article aims to highlight the lesser known sites.  Ask anybody about a GW2 site, and the first one that pops up is almost always Guru or a Curse related site.
  • Guru does not focus as much on resources (save for the GW2DB) or TP statistics as other websites.  That article aims at providing resources about the game to players.  Hence why GW2Wiki is on there.
  • Guru is known for having a strict moderation team (although i have yet to ever see anything out of the ordinary be done, Khalija and team keep it clean but not restricted).
  • Any discussion about the game is overshadowed by the conspiracies, "professional analysis" threads and constant bickering and circle-based reasoning discussions on the same topics over and over again by the same group of people.  You really think fans will come to a forum like that to have an interesting discussion about parts of the game they enjoy?  Of course not.

Probably the most outstanding reasons.  *goes back to enjoying vacation*

How could you deem it a process when a same identical set of activities could simultaneously be considered to be "grinding" to one player, yet not to another player?
