I haven't read much about the warrior changes, is it for WvW and PvP only? Or does it apply to PvE as well? I wish they'd address the Guardian's speed. It seems every class has a trait or signet to increase their speed. Guardians only have 2 skills and a staff attack that gives small 3-6 second swiftness boosts. You can be left in the dust in zerg rushes. Thankfully everyone is using their skills that grant swiftness to those around them, but still, trying to catch up can be hell.

I'm excited about the trading post and crafting menu revamps.

It doesn't say it is for PVP only so I'm assuming it includes pve. Are there many skill differences in pvp? I know gw1 eliminated some elites from pvp and changed some skills specifically for pvp, and when you switched to that mode you'd see the differences in your skill bar. But I haven't noticed any references yet to pvp or wvw skill changes in gw2. I should look it up.

This patch is making changes to the guardians elite skills but it doesn't say what changes exactly.

It looks like its PvE changes. I haven't played PvP because I get destroyed most the time on one vs. one in WvW. The Guardian elite skills are pretty crappy, that's why I stick with my Mistfire Wolf.

My brother mentioned the same thing. He said PVP is basically full of the equivalent of 100 star battlefield veterans sitting on shit buckets. Its so one sided that you either have to stop playing PVE and dedicate all your time to become a PVP expert or you don't have a chance at all. He did seem to like the WvW tho.

Season 2!? What was season 1? :confused: I need to go read the wiki. :P

 

*edit*

 

Oh! I thought the living story was something different and ended with The Dragon's Reach Part 2 and we were getting some massive new content already. ^_^; This is what happens to me when I post on my phone while watching a movie. XD

I was hoping they'd do the Halloween event again. I see everyone with cool titles and Halloween gear from time to time in the game.

I wish my charr was level 80 already. Conditions don't usually bother my necro. I have no problem removing, inflicting or eating Conditions for hp. Almost every skill I have is condition related. Depending on my skill setup I can transfer all conditions from all allies to myself, then transfer them to an enemy and then spread the conditions on that enemy to all others in the area. Lol. And then I can go into plague form and inflict all enemies with a variety of conditions for 20 seconds, and then repeat. XD

When you get to 80, you'll find that the skills and moves that you were accustomed to dominating no longer do so. XD The lvl 80 Risen can continually inflict conditions as fast as you can remove them. You may benefit from not having cool downs, but they will drain your meter fast. Fighting mobs becomes deadly. The Mordrem inflict agony, which the the most deadly of all conditions. My Greatsword of the Sunless does it as well and I love it. Its kind of like poison or bleed out except it lasts longer and takes life away a lot faster. I think Agony is only in living world, Tequatl, and Fractals of the Mist. Infusions are the only way to gain agony resistance in which I have none. I want to actually get a legendary weapon before spending that amount of time on any infusion.

Lol. That's cool, my condition setup is only good in a group of ppl anyway. My standard power build is decent enough for my range level but in higher areas I get dominated on easily. I think I'm going to get some new gear on the trading post. A few basic things like better accessories and what not for a few silver each. I realized that my charr doesn't have a single earring equipped and he's already level 57. Those must drop about as often as an under water breather.

They don't drop at all I think. Do you visit the karma merchant at each heart when you complete their task? They generally sell stuff like that. It sucks that you cant salvage it when you find something better, but its more wallet friendly to do so. The heart vendors always sell a cheap and an expensive version of each trinket, the latter sometimes behing double the price of the cheaper one. I didn't buy a single wearable upgrade from the TP. I got them from karma vendors, laurel vendors, and the WvW tourney rewards.

Ah.. I was under the impression I should save all my karma points until I hit level 80 to buy some armor with. Ive only spent maybe 10 karma since I've owned the game. Since those heart merchants only take karma I've been ignoring them. ^_^;

XD You're such a hoarder! You'll need about 500k karma to buy a complete exotic set. But once you hit 80, doing world boss trains and the temples of orr will get you what you need pretty fast.

Gold/Silver/Copper are much more rare and accumulate 1000x slower than karma. I probably get 50k-100k of karma a week doing level 80 stuff.

Wow. O_O I'm not a hoarder in real life but in games I definitely am. I'm really bad with my in game items for all games that I play. Especially rpg games. I had probably 10,000 items in FF7. X_x I'm glad gw2 has a "sell junk" option. I didn't realize at first and I ended up putting 30+ bone fragments and something else in my bank thinking that I'd need them for something eventually. ^_^;

Or a Mithril node.... -_-; I guess I won't be playing AW today. I gotta knock out this story and explore the new area of Silverwastes.

 

EDIT: UGH... what a cliffhanger! You're lucky you'll get to play most of these consecutively until you catch up....

It looks like the new nodes are only "very rare drops" from black lion chests. I'm not going to buy a bunch of keys with actual money just for a chance of getting one. But these new ones are sellable. Ppl were listing then at around 700 gold a piece last night. The mystic forge node is apparently the most common one. Those were 33 gold as of last night.

Guild Wars 2 Living World Season 2 continues January 13th!

 

Interesting, Logan enters the fray. Trahearne has played a very small part. Rytlock has had the most epic part of the story so far. Caithe recently joined adding more questions than answers... and now Logan enters Living World. He's always had a close bond with Caithe... it will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

      Tuesday my favorite festival of all time for GW2 comes back. I'm more hyped to play than I have been in a very long time. I was a n00b when this festival first debuted, and I'm sure a lot of nostalgia boosts it's memory for me, but even then, I remember feeling that Halloween and Wintersday paled in comparison. When the year spun back around and it didn't come back I was disappointed. Labyrinthine Cliffs is going to be much easier to traverse without the need of the aspect crystals, but the Dolyak Race should still be funny. I'm looking forward to the additions they've made, and I'm ready to grind out Boss Blitz. I hope they've scaled up the bosses properly and made the rewards worth grinding so it doesn't become a ghost town if people go back to Istan.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.
