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.

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.

      The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.

      I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
