Sell Emblems of the Avenger for other WvW currency?

If you're like me and semi-seriously do WvW on any semblance of regular basis, you probably also have a number of the Emblem of the Avenger sitting in your bank. Or you did, but you deleted them. The sheer number of player kills you do in a squad ensures you get a bunch of them, and they do nothing but sit there unless you plan on making untold numbers of Conflux.

The idea: the Skirmish vendor that sells the triumphant hero/mistforged hero armour/weapons also allows you to trade in your vast numbers of emblems for WvW currencies. As each emblem is 100 kills, it should trade for half that.

So,1 Emblem = 50 Memories of Battle, OR 50 Badges of Honor, OR either 50 of the Heroic tokens, OR 50 skirmishing tickets. Or maybe even a jug of karma, or reward track boost for whatever.

This ensures that even the most diehard players of WvW can trade the surplus for something useful to them. All I know is that I personally won't be evolving 10+ Slumbering Conflux to the ball-wielding full Conflux.

    I don't think they'll allow for skirmish ticket conversion. Badge of honor / tribute maybe or reward track progress, with testimonies of heroics or memories of battle much less likely.

  • Danikat.8537Danikat.8537 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    I'm not sure about the numbers proposed in the OP, for a start I don't think 50 skirmish tickets is equal to 50 badges of honour, badges are much, much easier to obtain so it should give more badges than tickets (and I'd probably suggest reducing the number of tickets rather than increasing the badges).

    But I absolutely agree that it would be better to have something to do with these other than store them indefinitely or delete them. Even if it was just the option to sell it for 30 silver like the legendary spike. Destroying them is annoying, and it feels like a real waste to destroy what's supposed to be a good drop, but like the OP I'm unlikely to ever use them, certainly not all the ones I can get.

    (Sometimes I wish newer legendary collecitons worked like the weapons where you can't get the drops until you choose to activate the collection. I've got all these odd bits of different legendary collections from raids, WvW and probably other places which I don't want to get rid of, just in case I decide to use them, but for now they're just taking up space. I suppose the point is to encourage us to make the legendaries, but it's kind of annoying.)

  • I agree that I may have been over-ambitious with the high values of the currencies. Hell, I would even take a coin value at this point. I just don't have a need for the extensive amounts of them I've got and will continue to get. Plus I would rather be able to trade the surplus than just delete them.

    It would be neat if they had a vendor value of 1 gold each, could be used in future WvW 'collections', or be traded in for Potions of WvW experience.

  • Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    I concur with whoever said that 50 of each of those things doesn't make sense, but it would be nice to have something to do with the items now that I've made the legendary, especially if there's a legendary armory coming.

    I would rather some kind of rewards we can use them as currency for... some new weapon skins... something really high quality... charge me 100 Emblems each.
    Either that or let me vendor them for a gold each. Would go a long way to putting some profit in the game mode.

    Love, love, LOVE the idea of trading in large amounts for unique skins.

    Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    I agree, I dont have any plans to go after any legendary trinkets (not until you can turn off all their ugly effects) and I don't like very limited use items especially common ones that just end up getting stockpiled in massive numbers reasonably quickly.

    Bottles of Airship Oil and the other HoT mats like it are another big offender to this too.. they just pile up rapidly and you can't sell them or trade them so im constantly deleting them and it's very annoying.
    Make em useful or allow us to sell or trade them for something else.

  • I'll be happy to just get rid of them for copper.

    play wvw if u want wvw currencies. but if you get what you want, then i want the raid currencies exchangeable for the loads and loads of wvw currencies i have.

  • Turkeyspit.3965Turkeyspit.3965 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    At the very very VERY least, let us consume them for 100 Karma each or something. There is just zero reason to have to either stack these in storage, or destroy them. At least Legendary Spikes can be vendored for 30s each.

  • Taylan.2187Taylan.2187 Member ✭✭✭

    There should definitely be a way to use them up / sell them, even if just for a tiny benefit like 10 silver each.

    I dunno.... I really enjoy the map and everything but it just doesnt really feel like WvW to me unless there's some blowhard on discord telling me to empower and a half dozen forum threads complaining about having to actually play it to get the rewards.

    Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    Since there seems to be some confusion, the OP is talking about this item: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Emblem_of_the_Avenger

    The only way to get it is by killing 100 players in WvW, so it's not available in any other game mode. Currently it's only use is in upgrading the WvW legendary ring Slumbering Conflux to the version with effects. Which means anyone who plays WvW regularly is going to end up with far more of them than they need.

    At the moment it can't be sold to merchants, converted into any other currency or used for anything except upgrading the legendary and deleting it requires you to type the name out, which makes extras annoying to get rid of. Adding the ability to convert it into a currency would solve that problem, and making it a WvW currency ensures you're not getting something you can't currently get from exactly the same activity which gives you the Emblem of the Avenger.

    Yes! I agree it should be a vendor trade item.

    It would be better if even they give something like "consume to get 3 WvW tickets" or at least 3 badges of honor.

  • I don't mind the various ideas and points here. But I don't think having WvW items being able to be converted into anything other than coins, karma, or WvW currencies (of indeterminate nature) is wise. You can't get raid tokens in Fractals, PvP, or WvW, and it's best that way. Keep endgame modes separate to allow them to be their own agencies.

    But what do I know? I'm just the dork on the forums moaning about an emblem. XD

    OR ... just make the achievement two-time only, so you get them for your rings and make the "new" repeatable achievement drop no rewards.
    This way you get your two emblems for your rings, your bank stays clean and ANet doesn't have to come up with some currency conversion, which inevitably will be a shot in the foot, because people always complain and/or find a way to exploit it.

    Or take the easy way out and make them cost 1 silver, so we can vendor them.
    Those things are NOT there to make money off of them. And intentional mass killing, zerging, feeding... should not get rewarded.

    10s being because Wvw items are wvw items and we know what is gonna happen to stuff that is suggested.

    Well they're good for boasting how many kills you got.

    Guess you should be able to trade 1 of them for same stuff as whats included in skirmish chests. Nothing like 50 memories of battle... That would crash the market.

    Emblem of conqueror should be worth more tho. Kills are so easy to leech. You can easily get above 300 kills in 1 hour during good times. Same number for objectives is less than 15 (1 objective per 4 min, sentries don't count).

    Create A one time reward track that takes 10 of them each time to unlock.
    Reward track should have a fairly decent loot table. I was thinking something with twice the amount of mystic clovers and some good material drops. Something similar to the "Glory To The XXXX Achievements" in No Quarter.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • I can sort of see where some people who are worried about the market are coming from, but I stand my ground on the Memories of Battle. The PvP equivalent is cheap as chips, and drop at the sneeze of a skritt. There is no reason why we shouldn't be able to have an alternative way to get more MoB.

    It's a little gold item you end up with in your inventory when you kill 100 players in WvW. It can be used to make the new legendary rings. Many of us who play WvW a lot, now have more Emblems of the Avenger than we have ring fingers on all of our alts. Yes, we could take time to delete them (which is mildly obnoxious), but there is this fear that Anet will come up with something else that these might be used for. If items can be be sold to a vendor, then at least it 'feels' like we won't be hit later with another legendary item that might take a large quantity of these.

    If say a legendary Avenger shield comes out that costs 2000 of these, and I've been able to get 5 copper from them, well then I can feel relieved that I at least got 20 silver out of the batch, and I can tell myself that I didn't want to spend a ton of gold on mats, anyway. However, if I cleared bank space the day before Anet announces such an item, it would be maddening. I have had Anet do that sort of thing to me, and probably so have others (I swear, Anet devs watch my account, and then giggle over how to mess with me..."See! She deleted them, yesterday! Let's announce that new legendary, today!" BUAHAHAHA)

    I don't think that's wise. After all, that's a PvE item. This is for WvW.
