First of all, about 90% of my time i spent in WVW
For quite some time i'm working, gathering etc on my legendary WVW armor.
At this moment I got all the aquired stuff, ( 6x gift of war dedication, prowess, prosperity).
This alone is quite some work to do.
Now im facing another very demotivating 'thread'.
To buy the 6 aquired acended armor pieces at the Skirmish Supervisor; in total I need 200 Grand Master markshards.
You get 1 shard in wvw participation for bronze, silver, gold reward.
So 3 every week, which is about 9 hours gameplay.
It wil take you 67 (!) weeks to get the 200 required shards by grinding the bronze, silver, gold reward
10 shards give 1 grandmaster tailor shard for light legendary armor. The same for medium and heavy.
You need handarmor (3), foot (3), shoulders (3), head (3), leggings (4), chest (4). In total 20.
At this moment I got the hand and leg armor.
Since you CANNOT buy the mark shards nor the tailor marks at the tradingpost. It's reall not worth working on wvw legendary.
If I finish this project it would have taken me about 2.5 years!!!!! And still about 1 year to go?!! ):'0
I think this need to be rebalanced by ANET
1 Mark per item is MORE than enough.
I looking forward to the replys.
Have fun in the game.
