  1. Well I guess I put off buying a video card for too long. All the prices have skyrocketed by 50% or higher because of some bullshit ethereum mining thing. I'm def not paying these prices. I was planning on doing it next month when I financially had a chance to do so. I guess I'll have to hope my video card last a bit longer.

  3. The older I get, the more I dislike the general public. I was never Mr. Popular in school because I kept to myself and felt that the upper echelon of the social order was so trivial. I can befriend just about anyone of any type of values/background. But overall my circle of friends is pretty small, and always has been.

    I say all that to say this... holy shit why are people so fucking stupid on the internet? I'm pretty new to this whole reddit/facebook groups thing. I remember running around anime forums as a 14-15 year old shooting off at the mouth like I was hot shit... but these are grown ass adults that don't have a fucking clue what they are talking about, nor do they want to learn.

    I see all these morons on the GW2 facebook group asking dumbshit questions you can easily look up yourself on wiki or youtube... The GW2 community has the best community of YT guide makers of any game... quite literally there are the most pointless guides for even the biggest imbeciles.  Taking 5 steps in a straight line from a waypoint to get to a POI? You better believe there is a YT video on how to do it! Just type in the name of the POI and at least 5-6 20 sec-1min videos will pop up. You could have tabbed out of GW2, or pulled out your phone and looked that bullshit up and got it done w/o wasting your time posting a question in a facebook group and waiting for someone to respond. I mean what the actual fuck? Then they get butthurt when someone posts the link to the wiki, and people actually coddle this fool like we shouldn't tell him to try harder to help himself? I almost left the group because of that because it was the second time in two days I saw it. Kumbaya shit pisses me off, and as a society its lead to the everything is offensive/racist/bigoted/cruel. Sometimes people have to feel like people think they're stupid to better themselves. Its called learning the hard way, and I've done a lot of it myself.

    Then you have assholes telling you about the class you main, and they have no fucking clue how the class works.... because they don't even play it. They main another class. Its obvious by what they're spewing out, by leaving out various aspects of the class while giving out vague descriptions... then a lot of times saying something that's completely false.

    But this is just a side note really, what set me off on this rant today is another facebook group. I'm a EDC nut. I own multiple guns, pocket knives, and flashlights. I recently got into a group about a particular brand of knife I enjoy. Overall its a great group that gives me good ideas about future purchases I might make. I recently ordered a knife that is an upgraded version exclusive from a certain knife retailer. It has a high tier quality blade steel, making the knife double the cost of the standard version. Even then at $80, this steel is normally only found on pocket knives that are $220-400. Its one hell of a deal. So this new guy that joined the group asks in a comment reply why would anyone pay double the price for this knife when he got it for way less. I explained to him what the deal was, because that's what the group is for... sharing knowledge and opinions. He never responded so I figured he understood and moved on.... then later down the comments I see him ask the question again... -_-; Another member tells him about the steel, and I follow up explaining that its an exclusive version of the knife only sold by that particular retailer, and I even go into why that steel is special and its characteristics. Once again no acknowledgement. He later makes his own post, posting the basic version of this knife that he owns, and someone asks him what version it is, and he states he just found out that there are more than one version of his knife and asks AGAIN why is there a one doubled in price.... this all took place in the span of 17 hours. I mean did you not fucking read mine and other peoples explanation? You read it enough to know there was more than one version! Holy shit.... Why are you so fucking ignorant? Is your mental retention that bad? How did you even manage make it back to the facebook group two days in a row?

    I'm not really raging, even though it sounds like it. It just bothers me that people act this helpless. The internet has made people even more lazy despite the fact that there is a wealth of knowledge to be had. I've learned a shit ton using it, whether it be about science, history, or my very own hobbies. I mean how do these people even pay their internet bill? Did they post on their ISP's forum to ask how to do it? Google is a powerful tool to find quick answers to everything. It requires way less clicks. Use groups and reddit for opinion discussion... not for basic questions that you need to find on your own. You just look like someone that could drown in the shower.

  4. I wish amazon would indicate if something is being shipped from out of country. The last 2 items I've purchased were both prime eligible and both gave the impression there would be 2 day shipping, until I get to the checkout and 'free 2 day shipping' has a delivery date of 1 week later. Still no indication as to why until I get the UPS tracking number and find out the item is being shipped from Canada. I haven't had anything from amazon actually arrive in 2 days in over 8 months.

      Honestly no, it's all hypocrisy. We could have a lotto if it went to schools. People are more open to it now. The problem is every time there is a proposal, the government wants it to go into the state general fund... So they can fatten their pockets. So when it gets voted down they do the "the people have spoken and don't want a lotto". -_-;

      There is plenty of titty bars and porn/adult toy shops around here. Honestly I don't know how they stay in business when you can order everything discretely online. There was a Asian brothel across from the mall for 20 years running as a "massage parlor". It even had an ad in the paper when newspapers were still viable. XD everyone knew it was a whore house, but I heard they use to give a lot of inside information to law enforcement so they turned a blind eye. A few months ago it closed down and a ton of Asians showed up in the crook book with all the mug shots. I don't know if they do that in your state, but we even have a Facebook page called "Arrested in Mobile" that posts all the mug shots as they get booked. XD

  7. So the Stormblood Early Access is fucking broke and everyone in NA trying to play the story is locked behind a mission no one can do due to SE dropping the fucking ball because of server congestion (or that's what they're saying, I've been waiting since 7 am to finish the god damn quest. Finally gave up since I can't get into the instance to do it). GG SE, I'm pretty sure if you get it fixed it's just going to break on Tuesday when SB officially launches. I forsee many angry customers and a lot of rage quitters. On a side not Samurai is fucking amazing and I think, once the story is finished on my Ninja, I'm switching jobs again. The amount of dps and damage this job can put out at 50 is enormous so I'm expecting great things from it at 70.

    On a much better note I finally got around to trying out Black Desert Online tonight. Gotta say besides being a freaking beautiful game it's actually pretty fun and addicting. Really like how the combat plays out with all of its combos. Definitely worth the $10 entry fee (that is if you're computer can run it, I'm running on high settings and not having any real issues). I think I found my new game to fuck around in when I run out of things to do in FFXIV (if I ever do x.x).

      I don't know how you do it with our arm rests. But I don't use the computer for more than 10-15 minutes a day in what I do. I spend my off days and off time in front of a PC. 2600 hours of Guild Wars 2, I couldn't imagine not resting my elbows on arm rests to support my arm up to the mouse and keyboard. I have a tray too. But I also have a $300 comfort PC chair that I can recline in and still reach the mouse and keyboard. The chair is everything. In 19 years I've gone through 2. I'm about to have to buy another one because this one wasn't as good as my last and its falling apart. But buying a chair every 7-8 years, I rather spend the money. There is nothing like sitting in a cheap shitty chair for a few hours, no matter what you're doing... its pure hell.

      I don't know what the general feeling is of being there, but outside of NY, its pretty much renown for its insane taxation on everything. Even its football teams don't play in NY.

      Florida can afford not to have sales tax because the whole state is a tourist attraction. There are multiple cities to visit, 800 miles of beaches, Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, 2 MLB teams, 2 NBA teams, 3 NFL teams, and 2 NHL teams. There is just endless amounts of revenue coming into it. The same goes for Texas.

      Government tends to ruin a lot of things, to where it benefits states that aren't fucking up. Like where I live, we don't have a state lotto or even Powerball/Mega Millions. Its a "sin" derp derp derp. So people go to church on Sunday, and then drive over to Pensacola 45 minutes away and buy lotto tickets, or dive to New Orleans and buy lotto tickets. I'm sure people in northern AL drive across the state line to Georgia to get theirs. We can't have casinos? Well Biloxi MS will gladly take all of AL's money for that too. Some things we're so far in the past on, other states are enjoying the benefits of it. You're not going to stop anyone from being "immoral" with their money, they'll just go somewhere that will let them. But hey, if you win, AL will be more than glad to tax you on that.

      I ordered my k-cups in bulk for the longest time because it saved me money. I use to buy gear like knives, flashlights, cellphone accessories, etc. Now I go elsewhere. 

      Yeah, in AL they ask if you've made any online purchases and I always click no. I spend less than $500 a year on stuff I normally can't get in this state, or my city at least. They get plenty of my sales tax as it is.

      I wonder if it has to do with your location being in NY, amazon selects the closest shipper geographically. You should click on the seller and see where the company is based, and then pick a different seller from the more options list.  This has only happened to me once, and what made me mad about it, is they still sent me tracking info that was fake and said it was out for delivery 3 for three days.

      I'm not sure If I'll renew my prime membership this go around. Amazon started charging sales tax in my state, and many other states so they could build brick & mortar stores eventually. I know they have build brick and mortar book stores in some places, and now they have bought Whole Foods. Most the stuff I like to buy I could buy elsewhere tax free. I'd be willing to wait a few more days if it shaves $10-25 off a big ticket item. I only got prime for its 2-day shipping, I don't use any of the other services... but if I'm going to start using other retailers to buy the stuff and avoid the sales tax, I don't see much point to amazon anymore. It was a stupid move on their part.

  11. Condi'ed out my Rev WvW style. I need 2 earrings and I'll be fully ascended. Cost me 400g to do for the armor. I already had the mace/axe/staff to stat swap. I didn't get to test it out because I spent 4 hours farming AB for Superior Runes of Durability. But it gave me a chance to learn the class more. I have 20k HP, a ton of toughness, and I can rack up 4k ticks of torment and confusion on vets. Getting rolled on by arrowheads only takes 15% of my HP. XD I can't wait to give this a shot tomorrow night with what I have.

      Yeah I'm sticking with Dire Guard... this shit is so OP it should be illegal. XD Purging Flames does 10k damage? WTF? I nuked some guy overlooking a gate we were flame ramming. He didn't expect it and just got insta downed and melted. I have 22.5k HP. I played for a little bit in JQBL with a small squad of about 7. Is always fun when someone comes to attack you like a DD, thinking your an AH Frontline, and you drop that burn on them and they freak out and run away. I watched 3 people just run from me when I dropped purging flames on them. Most of the time it kills them if they aren't a warrior or rev. XD I had a Warrior do GS3 off a ledge just so I couldn't get his bag. Judges Intervention also adds to it as well, because I got someone that was with him and jumped on their corpse thinking they could 2v1 me. XD 

      I tried to play in a big zerg on EB, but I couldn't get into the squad because it was full. I did ok, but I wasn't getting any of the group support so when my stability and cleanse ran out I often got gravity welled... damn FA loves their mesmers. Its pretty annoying... the whole condi meta is a bit absurd. I'd die and WP only to have 5-6 bags in my inventory from people that died from my flame nuke. WvW should really be put on its own mode with a PvP type class builder. Burn guard is way more OP in WvW than it is in PvP. I mean, I can launch 5k ticks of burning without purging flames. Condi needs to be toned down a lot, but I'll keep abusing the shit out of it until its fixed. Dire gear is super cheap... and the trinkets are cheap too because Tequatl's fang and Amulet of Triple Curiosity are both Dire. The rings are 3g each, and you'll spend about 6-7g on the armor. Luckily I kept the 2 level 80 back pieces from the druid stone asc back collection and got a exotic dire back going too. I could give the other one to my necro if i wanted to try Dire Reaper.

      After playing Warrior for a few hours, Its fun until you get exploited for your weaknesses. What I can't stand about warrior is how vulnerable you are from the back side. I'd often find myself getting melted by some asshole DD that was waiting for an opportunity to kill someone that strayed out or got CCed and fell behind. I guess I'm spoiled by Guardian that can deploy Staff 5 behind yourself, drop a trap, purging flames, ageis, or renewed focus to stop a burst from behind.

      Having to dedicate the whole utility to stability is crazy. FA had a ton of Mesmer tonight and I kept getting gravity welled and melted by condi bombs. None of the guards were dropping purging flames to help with this, and Warriors condi cleanse is pretty shit. At least with rev, I can keep stacking resistance duration and mega heal off condi bombs. Hopefully that changes with Spellbreaker. Even Cloud Fly died a few times it was that bad.

      If all the qT speculation is right, guardian is going to replace Chrono as top support. Mirage is going to be a dps class. If the permaswiftness is 10 targets, Firebrand is def going to be wanted in WvW. I'm already feeling the burning nerf coming. If firebrand can sustain burn damage after stacking it like base guard already can, it will be a blast for a few weeks. You might as well craft another full set of ascended heavy armor. Just avoid meta runes that are locked behind some map or dungeon. The fractal infusion remover should work on WvW infusions. You can alter the stats and give it to whoever when a meta is formed after the expac releases.

      Yes, because Firebrand most likely will need vipers armor and I can just give it to my guard when the expac comes out. Or give it to spell breaker and stat swap my guardian, or swap with Rev if it becomes power. Although I think SB for Rev will be a condi range option. Having 2 sets of heavy ascended armor serves to give me options for the future, which is why I made it. I didn't destroy my revs exotic armor like I normally do for that reason.

      So after testing this tonight, it's def a love hate relationship. Rev is nothing in zergs without guards. You have access to as little stability as Necro. If you get CCed and condi bombed, you're dead. This was pretty frustrating. Solovic is normally a good comm, but he was having a bad night... then Cloud Fly showed up and we starting destroying. This dude is the best commander JQ has. I never seen him have a bad night. I started getting stability and was able to drop my condi bombs. We took back everything we lost on JQBL in 30 min, and crushed FA like a bug in every zerg fight. I don't know how he does it.

      I think this is a roaming class though. Before it all went down I was running around for participation and I destroyed 2 mesmers, and ele, and a warrior. They couldn't deal with my torment, the ele killed themselves from my confusion.

      Oh a third note, damn I'd be pissed as fuck too if my favorite game was screwed because of something so simple. It's happened in GW2 before. Generally it gets fixed fairly quickly, but sometimes it takes longer. I say its simple, but behind the scenes its probably some oversight that caused a complete trainwreck in the code.

      GW2 can be grundy depending on what it is, but once you get a fully ascended set of gear, you're done. It doesn't go any higher and never will. They'll add more vertical progression with each release, but the devs have committed to the gear will and level cap never going past 80. And if a new meta arises, it's pretty inexpensive to stat swap your gear. Legendary gear is the same tier as ascended with the QoL of free stat swapping. 

      Don't get me started on destiny. It was worst than any MMO. "Crafting" or more like buying bullshit from the gunsmith was a joke and the RNG was shit. With no lesser equipment that was at least comparable that you could craft or buy through grinding mats, it was a depressing system. I may have gotten a lot of great drops, but I never got Gjally til they sold it before nerf, and I never got Fatebringer despite numerous VoG runs when I got a group. Then when I got The Messanger from ToO, they took a shit on it and all my gear for the expac. Yeah fuck that.

The amount of dps and damage this job can put out at 50 is enormous so I'm expecting great things from it at 70.

    On a much better note I finally got around to trying out Black Desert Online tonight. Gotta say besides being a freaking beautiful game it's actually pretty fun and addicting. Really like how the combat plays out with all of its combos. Definitely worth the $10 entry fee (that is if you're computer can run it, I'm running on high settings and not having any real issues). I think I found my new game to fuck around in when I run out of things to do in FFXIV (if I ever do x.x).

      I get too committed to games like that and end up spending money like crazy. I love how BDO looks, but every YT video I watch whether the commentator loves it or hates it, they both say its grindy as fuck and pretty much a never ending gear treadmill. I don't want to commit to something like that. Its great for people that have time to stay ahead of the curve. Shit, I probably spent a good $300 on the cash shop when I was into BnS, then I got vertigo and fell so far behind that no one on my server was doing the low level quests so I couldn't beat any of the world bosses and gave up on the game. I have an unhealthy addiction to cash shop cosmetics. I've probably spent another $100-200 on Overwatch loot boxes. XD As Sledge knows from GW2. My luck is pretty damn good for most RNG boxes... its good enough to keep me spending money. If I had Sledge's luck, I'd never buy loot boxes. XDXD I can't really comment how much I've spent on GW2. Is probably over $600-700 over a three year span of $20-30 here and there.

  21. My top 5 games I've played since last E3.

    1. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    2. NieR: Automata
    3. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
    4. Ratchet & Clank
    5. Battlefield 1 Campaign

    That's pretty loose because technically Uncharted 4 came out a month before last E3, but I didn't play it until a few months after it came out. I tried not to put multiplayer/MMOs in there, but so little games impressed me enough into a purchase, this is the list I was left with. BF1's Campaign was pretty damn good though, despite my grudge against the MP as a whole, I can't overlook that. The episodic nature of it really worked well, and the finale of each were really epic. Kudos to DICE for finally making a competent single player experience outside of Bad Company. 

    My first 2 are leaps and bounds above the rest of the list. Uncharted 4 was outstanding, but in my heart and mind, I can't find it to be super memorable. This is because I played 1-4 in 5-6 days, and a lot of it jumbles to together into one big game. While 4 had amazing visuals, and more polished controls, it was more of the same from the last 3. But honestly that's not bad at all. The story and characters I loved very much, which caused me to buy the 4th immediately after beating the collection.

    Zelda brought something completely new to the series, while keeping it very familiar. It's a masterpiece I hope everyone gets to enjoy. NeiR was just something new and refreshing from the norm. Despite its many flaws, its one of my favorite games of all time. I didn't think I'd like having to play through multiple times to get the real ending, but I actually did. The combat, story, and above all the music was just spectacular. It's def one of those games that not enough people will get to play because it fell through the cracks.

  22. I'll give credit where its due. Microsoft had a pretty good E3 presentation. But sadly for them the XBox One X is like the Wii U in title. Its going to get them screwed up. On top of that what percentage of the base is going to be using 4k? $500 is steep. Its like the Goldstar 3DO... unnecessarily ahead of its time. They had some time exclusive stuff, but Sony had real exclusives like Spider-Man, Days Gone, and of course God of War.

  24. World versus World in Guild Wars 2 is fun again. I've played a little over an hour a night for the last 2 nights and I haven't had that much fun in WvW since I was power leveling my second character almost 3 years ago. I think I'll upload a video later tomorrow. The zerg rushes are real. XD I saved a couple videos but the one I really wanted didn't save for some reason. We had a full on battle of 3 armies, so epic. XD

      He must have a good network of scouts on discord because he always knows where to go to stop the enemies from taking the keeps and where the enemy siege is when we take something. The Borderland hoping was great. After we crushed them on FABL, they came back again and we destroyed them and then chased the rest across the map killing more to teach them a lesson. XD we were even killing them in the water. I'm glad you got to experience his commanding. That food he drops helps too with the 20% less damage from condi and when stunned.

      I might only ever play when Cloud Fly is commanding. This dude is a beast. XD We were dominating in JQBL and FABL. We held the keep on both. The FA keep was fully upgraded, and FA wanted it back. With constant barrages from our superior arrow carts and catas, we held for a long time but then they got numbers from somewhere. They started breaking in and we were only a squad of about 33. We were able to fend them off and repair the walls, but we finally ran out of supply. They showed up with Golems next.  Cloud called in team chat for EB to come help. We popped an emergency WP that doesn't get contested and the JQ army flooded in and we crushed them. It was so epic. That's the old fights I remember. The desperation with defeat looming and reinforcements charging in to save the day. I also got my first legendary spike.

      I starting using my rev to help with the condi bombing. I'm not quite sure how it works, I just know it provides resistance for the group. Sometimes I can stand there with 15 conditions on me and lose no HP, I need to figure out how resistance works, and how/if it procs. The meta calls for marauder armor with durability runes. I don't feel like spending that gold just yet. I have zerker armor and went with DD runes which have toughness and power. My first test was helping a JQ player cap a camp, he was being 2v1ed and I showed up and demolished an Ele and Engi. Their attack damage was laughable, especially since I can constantly regen HP with Glint. From then on I was impressed. I died a few times, because I have no idea what I'm really doing in group fights. I just know I can provide constant might, swiftness, and boon duration to everyone. I know I can corrupt boons on enemies, and protect the group from condi bombs. Plus one of Glint's facets gives me perma swift to keep up with the zerg. I'll probably make this my WvW character. I might wait til the expac to commit to the meta.
