27 days left until 2019

What goals are you trying to finish before the end of the year?

I'm working on completing my Warbringer WvW back piece. Still need a few more skirmish tickets, but should have everything I need by Christmas week.

    No interesting economy changes

    They just overhauled the sigil|rune system, which affected all sorts of things, including the prices of ecto. A lot of people made good money from that change and it's become much easier to manage bags of loot, which itself has economic implications.

    Almost no new legendaries

    They have consistently released a new legendary with new living world episodes. There are new armor skins with legendary-like glows, new infusions, and other new shinies.

    Living world drags out

    It's been released at about the same pace since about six months after HoT launched. An episode every 2-4 months. I'm not saying that's fast (it's not for me either), but (a) it's much faster than the pre-HoT & post-HoT content droughts and (b) it's been status quo for nearly 3 years. That's not a recent change to the game.

    My main aim was to decorate the guild hall before wintersday. It cost me 200g but its done to a decent standard if not quite how i wanted.

    All other goals are moved to next year since my motivation is low and i have a lot of games to smash through alongside festival content this month

  • Not aiming for the new year, but my current goal is to finish up ascended armor. Need gloves, helm, boots, leggings for my ranger. Got everything else. It's a slow trek.

    I am hoping Wintersday brings a minimum of 400AP, so I can get my 30k Chest before new year.

    The above was written as part of an attempt to waste time.

    I finally pushed myself to go back into the PoF maps last week (had quit at the entrance to the Domain of Vabbi for the past year) and face the onslaught of unfun, unending enemy encounters and horrid, unskippable dialogue story instances and their issues just to complete the story, which was a requirement in order to begin the griffon collections. Finished it and the collections to get the griffon unlocked, so that's finally done with now.

    I'm not in any hurry to slog through any of the LS story release instances now (had enough of unskippable and horrendous story for this year), let alone delve into more hyper-aggressive enemy-packed maps just to get the beetle, so finish mapping Domain of Vabbi and pick up one or two mastery points I had skipped might be something I will try to try to force myself to get done before the start of 2019.

    Might not though - I do not find spending hours slaughtering a specific type of enemy to finally get a single rng item drop, then do it all over again with each of several other specific type of enemy until I get lucky on them also, just so I can get one mastery point and complete the map to be very fun at all...

    Kibble for Hamsters is on sale again at PetCo, if there's one near you.
    (More seriously: sorry about your machine. Maybe some unknown rich relative will show up offering you a nice Amazon gift certificate soon.)

    Aww...that's a nice, if unlikely, thought. Thank you.
    Hopefully, a friend is coming by (after Christmas, but before New Year's) to look at it. I hope he can solve the issue.

    I would say the only specific goal I have is to hit 29K AP. I'm pretty close, around 100 ap to go, so I'm betting Wintersday will provide the AP boost I need. (I really want to hit 30K for the Radiant chest, but that ain't happening this month). Beyond that, just continuing to have fun playing the game, doing achieves and collections, hanging out with friends.

  • Trying to muster the courage to finish my first leggo, only need 600 iron ores, but i got caught in completing achievements and trying to find a raiding guild for ma reaper, so i intend to finish those before next year then we'll see XD!

    Nothing. No new meaningful additions to the story means my attention is elsewhere until a more substantial side story or the next Living World episode is announced.

  • Going to finish the collections for hope and astralaria. And finally learn 100cm.

  • Frankly, I'm just amazed that I've lived this long. I remember believing that I'd never make it to 2000, the way I was living back then. To be sitting here in 2018 is amazing enough, to think that I might actually see 2019 makes anything I may want to do here sort of irrelevant. In the spirit of the topic though, maybe get my revenant to cap, once I shake this cold.

  • Scrabbling enough gold together to buy enough gems for the last 5-pack of Distant Lands mount skins. I seem to be a mount skin junkie.

    I just finished Xiuquatl, so now I'm going for https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Celestial_Infusion_(Blue) :) Then probably next year the next episode will be released with a new legendary weapon (Greatsword/Longbow), so that will be my first 2019 goal.

    The amount of APs in the Halloween event was INSANE! I hope it will be as much for the Wintersday!

    Working on 2 ascended heavy sets for my last 2 ladies sans the pink stuff. working being the operative word. won't be finished this year. Most of my end game has been crafting.
    I play the game in fits and starts. One minute farming my butt off and the next doing dailies and not much else. Wintersday will be like every year so not overly hyped for that one. At the moment i'm in the 'not much else club'
    Also been upgrading our GH and we just finished all the buildings. Wish GH's had a TP in them.

  • Taelac.7036Taelac.7036 Member ✭✭✭

    I've finished most of my goals for this year and am mostly in dailies-and-festivals mode. I do hope to finish taking my necro through the PoF storyline to finish the banner backpiece achievements before the year's out. I'd like to pull together another hundred gold for my savings toward one of my goals for next year (the catmander tag, minis and home instance cats, which I am planning to pick up to celebrate hitting 1000g on-hand again).

    I'll probably add a Wintersday goal or two when I see what changes this year brings. Maybe I'll see if I can master the middle-difficulty path on the WD jumping puzzle.

    Good luck, have fun.

    December's always crazy with work and life stuff until the last week of the year. I'll be happy if I have time to race rollerbeetles and complete dailies one or twice a week.

    Oh boy. Expansion map completion I guess. Mostly the HOT maps because I really hate them and want to get them done so I never have to see them again.

    I am on the hunt for exclusive dyes wink wink

  • In no particular order:

    • Saving materials for (hopefully) the release of a Legendary Bow early 2019.
    • Possibly making Legendary armour from WvW.
    • Gaining enough AP to reach the next (25.5K) reward during Wintersday.
    • Reaching Platinum rank in WvW - only mode I seem to log on for anymore.

    Nothing. I am extremely bored and I don't even log in for daily rewards. I'll come back sometime but at the moment I am glued to the OLED screen on which I play console games. I have quite a bit of a backlog I want to finish.

    Ah, but Halloween brought a ton of new Annuals to do (what Arden was referencing), I’m hoping Wintersday has been given the same treatment.

    no, as you can see, he takes the time to press shift at te first letter of every sentece creating the 'eFFECT'. he's intentionally writing like this :)

    I mean, if we're talking about achievments, than we got quite a few to do (mostly doing same stuff all over again though), however, if we're talking about new available AP, we got 50 (for completing annual achis) and some extra which nested also around 50 i think ? I may be wrong but i belive it was around that number.
    Edit: Oh and, Wintersday is definetly getting same treatment, otherwise most people will just ignore annual achis (i did last year, since they gave litteraly nothing).

    Or...the 'Caps Lock' key was pressed inadvertantly, and the poster is someone that 'hunts and pecks', and doesn't look at the screen while typing, or before pressing the 'Enter' key.

    My main goal is staying alive. For no particular reason, just because I like my metabolism running.
    Also, having all my presents for the kids and wife. Uhm, yeah.

    If your question was related to ingame stuff: doing dailies, doing races, scratch my head and wait for good stuff to come.
