  1. I made a legendary greatsword today in Guild Wars 2, Sunrise.. and then I combined it with my Twilight and made the most expensive greatsword in the game, Eternity. :D

      On a side note, I visited the GW2 forums today out of curiosity since I haven't been in forever. Its so funny to see how Thief is talked about like Necros were for the longest time, Necro is loved and adored now. XD If only Ele got knocked off their perch it would be amazing. Even on reddit when someone asks what class to play, the Ele mains come chiming in with their ele master race blah blah. Ah I got to experience what it was like to be at the top for 3 days with #SymbolicAvenger #Guardsway2015. XD

      Lol. Ever since I stopped playing pvp I stopped looking at the official forums. I remember the warrior forum being salty for a year but now the condi warrior is good again.. but only in pvp unless we get accessories with stats only obtainable from LSW2 achievements or from the raid. Imagine if berserker stats accessories were only available by completing every jumping puzzle in the game instead of from the laurel vendor. -_-; anet needs to rethink what they consider rewards.

      Ele is probably still the best because you only need one build for it to be strong. As a warrior I have to keep swapping my build depending on what content I play because warrior traits are a mess. Most of the time if I'm solo I'll stick with one build, but if I'm in a dungeon I keep swapping between 2 trait lines and re-equipping my warhorn depending on if one part requires skipping mobs.

      I would recommend reaper for everyone. Just set it with berserker stats and have fun.

  2. Fairy Tail is officially ending. Only 10 chapters left. This writer turned this series into garbage plot lines. :windows: I'm genuinely pissed at this manga now. Not because favorite characters are being killed off like most manga/animes do at the end.. Not that any main characters at this point are in any real threat of dying since every character seems to be immortal. Being mad like that would be a good thing since it means I feel for the characters and the overall plot.. But instead I'm mad because the writer threw so many random plot lines into the story over the last year that its become laughable like a bad soap opera. All long term plot lines are pretty much negated and last minute characters and plot lines now resolve everything.. something that was just revealed 10 chapters ago now solves half the danger to the planet that has been build up as an ultimate power throughout the last 400 chapters. wtf.

    I'll compare this to DBZ. Imagine all that build up how powerful Freeza was.. but then right before Goku is going to fight him, Krillin found some magic orb and then Bulma kicked it at Freeza and killed him. No big fight with Goku, no planet namek getting destroyed.. hell, Goku never even met Freeza. Thats the equivalent of what just happened. WTF.

      lol. I'm surprised there are still 9 chapters left. Unless some enemy comes back to life to do another fight (this would not surprise me at all), then these last 9 chapters are all basically going to be an epilogue since there are no enemies left to fight.

      I do a bit of smoking during the summer... and had the same problem last year. The best solution I found was to add a separate coal pan under my water pan, that way it was using it's own heat source, and keeping the water at a more stable temp. Still had to add more water every hour, though...:(

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thanks for the suggestion. I made some modifications to my smoker last weekend, but I haven't had a chance to try using it again. I added a new thermometer, a damper to the bottom to allow me to control airflow, and 3 bolts to the charcoal pan to place a grate on so the ash doesn't choke out the air flow.

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I was also using royal oak lump charcoal.. turns out the lump charcoal was burning very hot and fast, especially since I couldn't restrict air flow. Also, the lump really added a strong smoke flavor. Way too much. So I'll be trying out kingsford blue briquettes next time. Next time I use the smoker, I'll take pictures to upload so you can see what it looks like.

  5. I noticed Fairy Tail on netflix now has 48 episodes, so I checked out the last couple to see a major fight scene. Good fight.. but not the best VAs and its only in stereo. My fansubs have surround sound. Damn netflix going cheap on the audio.

      I think this is one of the reasons Funi VAs sound the same so often. Some of them have a wide range of voices, but they are doing so many projects at once, its too mush of a hassle to change it up a lot

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Plus, it would be difficult to get back into character on a series you haven't worked on in a while waiting on Funi purchases more seasons of it. Heck, even Bevis on the last season of Bevis and Butthead sounded a bit different after such a long hiatus.

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I can believe that. Funi acquires new series and seasons so frequently, they probably have all their VAs on a monday thru friday 9-5 schedule.

      Hmmm, I think that's why I liked Archer. He wasn't bogged down by the rules and was willing to make choices he felt was necessary to further, sadly, humanity's goals in space. I will admit he also dragged the series down quite a bit (more so in later seasons) but overall I thought he was a generally well thought out character. Heh, you should play STO Sledge if you like the Defiant. It's got an extremely powerful little brother called the Phantom Intel Escort and it's a da...

      ...mn fine ship (which will never be seen in any show unless they decide to make another Star Trek series set in the original universe). Sadly I turned mine in for a bigger badder ship known as the Manticore Heavy Destroyer but that Phantom is still a nice ship (and it comes with cloaking too). The wonders a 30 some year jump in the timeline does for technology (STO takes place 30 some years after the event of Star Trek Nemesis (about 22 years after the destruction of Romulus)).

      Yep.. same thing was happening today. I tried the 40x scope with the L96 for the first time today to. It was pointless with the rubberbanding at distance. That and without a range finder, I really couldn't tell where the bullet was landing because of the massive arch the bullet travels at for that gun. I need the SRR.

      there is one boss that spawns a healing turret for herself and shes impossible to beat with too many people because her turret scales up as well and she gains all her health back before it gets destroyed. It takes 45 minutes with a decent group that at least splits into 2... but most times it takes an hour or more to beat all the bosses. I generally don't jump in unless the healing turret boss is already down when I arrive.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      All the Bosses are level 80, and the cool part is everyone is scaled up to 80 in that area... so everyone can have a fair chance to contribute. After all bosses are downed a donation fund is set up and you can donate a little or a lot. You get the same amount of XP even with the smallest donation (1 silver). The boss blitz starts once the set amount is achieved.

  12. My older brother doesn't have a PS4 yet and with Destiny no longer needing beta codes, I decided to try it on PS3.. It uses my characters, controller settings, etc. from when I was playing on PS4. Its like I logged into a lower graphics version of the same game.

  13. I saw this article on my local news this morning stating that Trump is losing NY by 30 points now. He says the media is corrupt and hes only going to lose if the system is rigged. The thing is tho hes really loosing NY because he has no presence here. I've seen numerous Clinton commercials over the last month and I've gotten 3 phone calls from the DNC asking for donations and support. But there has been absolutely zero pro Trump commercials. Nothing from super pacs or from his own campaign. And those commercials against trump are pretty damning to his credibility. I know Trump says the media is corrupt but unless he actually pays the media companies for commercial time hes setting himself up for a loss. I'm actually starting to think he wants to loose on purpose at this point. If he has no interest in even trying to win his home state I don't see how hes going to win this election at all. Its so odd to see more commercials from my local republican representative trying to win his re-election and not see a single commercial for someone running for president.

      Honestly he'd be wasting time in NY. Republicans never win there, and probably never will again. NY and CA for Democrats is like the south for Republicans. He has to win Ohio, Florida, Virginia and NC to win. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/pow-its-just-a-2-point-race-clinton-38-trump-36/article/2599471 polling data is all over the place, but everything could change one way or the other with the debates. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      NY has voted democratic for i think the last 9 presidential elections. I figured if any republican had a chance at flipping it, it would have been trump. But it looks like he's ignoring this state, at least for now. This could easily turn into a tied race at any point. I agree that the debates will be huge deciding factors for alot of ppl.

    4. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      He has the best chance, and it would be a killing blow to Hillary to win NY. I don't see it happening. I want to say Reagan was the last to win NY and CA for that matter.

  14. My OCD has gotten the better of me again. I've been marathoning Guild Wars 2 so I can finish making the legendary raven staff Nevermore. The process of making this has so many parts and is so time consuming. I'm definitely finishing this now. Its definitely the most difficult and time consuming thing I've done in this game but its making me feel a real connection to the weapon. When I see other ppl that have it I'll know they went on that same journey. Its a pretty cool feeling. Its a bit of a shame the newer legendary weapons won't be made in the same way, but if they were I know I wouldn't put this much time into another one. The tier 4 collection is crazy.. I got a Raven egg, imbued it with power from numerous places, made an incubation chamber, hatched it and now I'm feeding it and teaching it to fly by doing specific events with alot of gliding. This is a cool experience. :D Once I'm done raising it, it'll actually become part of my living weapon. :D

      Nier and ME have been relaxing after I grinded out machined weapons. I'm taking a break until LWS3. I'll get in some SAB here and there, but that took a toll on me.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I finished up my Gift of the Raven. I still have to turn it into the Gift of Nevermore which isn't difficult at all at this point. I wanted that part done before SAB started. I hope they patched the exploit of selling tribulation runs. They allowed the selling of trib runs last year but said they would patch it. Since they allowed it I went ahead and bought all the runs of world 2 that I needed to get all the green weapon skins and the red SAB infusion. If its not patched I might feel torn about buying all the runs I'd need for the yellow skins just to get the blue SAB infusion.. I'd feel torn about it because I'm a bit burned out on infusions now, but the blue one would actually look decent with my fractal back piece. XD But I also have just enough gold left to finish Nevermore.. lol. I hope it's patched. XD

      Make sure to do your daily 3 SAB events like last year for the multiple daily meta achieve. I got a late start on it last year and only got 1 of the kaiser weapon skins. If we do the SAB daily every day this festival we should be able to get at least 2 kaiser / crimson skins. I'm really interested in seeing what the big SAB reward track chest will have for pvp or wvw. If the finisher is in there as a reward I'll start doing my pvp again.

      I mention Naruto and One Piece since they're the only other long running series I've cared about. I guess Berserk should be included to but its only a long running series because the guy makes 1-2 chapters every 5 years. -_-; i tried reading hajime no ippo but f*ck that. It's somehow longer than one piece and shows no sign of ending. I loved the anime tho. 

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Considering what I know of One Piece I'd have to agree as it's quite obvious he's working toward a set goal (I still need to sit down and watch it as well as get caught back up on the manga (I believe I got to chapter 30 or 40 before I quit reading due to other concerns) as everything he does feels planned (by what I've read and heard from others). I can't comment much on Naruto as the only chapter I've read is the final one but again it seemed he knew where he was going from the get go (the anime on the other hand didn't seem like it knew where it was going).

      Yea, I need to get back into reading Berserk (I stopped reading at volume 9 but I do have up to volume 35 downloaded) and start reading Five Star Stories (you think Berserk is bad, the author for FSS went on a 9 year hiatus before he started up again in 2015 (stopped in 2006) and the manga has been going on since 1986, I think he's currently on hiatus again).

      The Jedi Knight games are amazing... well I never played the 1st one. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy are very very good games. Way ahead of their time in saber combat. If those games are in that package. I recommend it.

      When you start reading a series, you go along not know what to expect and it's only the stories that have 'substance' make it, for me at least. FT is formulaic, regressive and I found myself not 'waiting' for the next manga episode to release. The plot or writing doesn't interest me anymore. Must like Bleach after the Soul Society arc, I didn't bother.

So I don't know if everyone is scaled up to do it or if its only for level 80 players that already beat the main story. Dungeons require 5 people to defeat... but I've done with with 3 and even 2 people before... its a pain in the ass without 5. If I'm on when you guys get to that point and need and extra man for a dungeon, I'll be glad to assist.

      Sounds like fun. I'll be getting on there this weekend for sure.

      Turns out its only for level 80 players, but as long as I log in during the event I can get it unlocked to accomplish later.. I think thats how it works.

      Oh! Those guys. They remind me of the centaurs. Sentient creatures like those frog guys. The centaurs had a story line in gw1. I'm surprised they are nothing but a warrior race with slaves now.

      I often hear NPC chatter about being weary of the alliance with the Charr, and someone always reminds the crowd the Centaurs are the real enemy.

      If you hang around the black citadel long enough you'll hear the young cubs talking about how stinky the humans are and why they're even allowed in the city. Usually an adult tells them, yes.. I know they stink but we need their help with the dragons. The Charr have their hands full with the human ghosts of Ascalon, thats probably what kept their disgust of humans strong after all these years and new generations.
