    To be honest, it should really have been just “Yes” and “No” as the only options based on the phrasing of what’s being asked. Adding more options than what’s really needed isn’t a great idea.

    If whether the rings are attuned/infused:

    • Infused only
    • Attuned only
    • Infused and Attuned
    • Not Infused or Attuned

    Any other option would just be clutter/noise from gaining anything meaningful.

    That was supposed to be option 2 but I suppose that should have been no lol.

    Also you can get infused from the skirmish merchant. I think you need pve masteries to attune but no fractals should be needed for either. They can pick any stat.

    Think he was just trying to be funny with most of the answers, but yeah these are the appropriate options.

    And to explain to people who may not know:
    Attuned - requires throwing into the mystic toilet - 1 Ascended Ring, 1 Agonized Essence, 1 +1 Agony Infusion, 1 Philosopher's Stone. This would be fairly easy for everyone to do.

    Infused - requires throwing into the mystic toilet - 1 Ascended Ring, 5 Vial of Condensed Mists Essence, 3 Glob of Coagulated Mists Essence, 1 Shard of Crystallized Mists Essence. This requires you to run fractals for the mist drops or to earn the fractal relics to purchase them. You cannot earn these mats in wvw, but you can buy the infused wvw rings with skirmish tickets and then attune it for the 3 infusion slots.

    I believe infused rings can also drop as loot, but don't really remember, it's been a while since I paid attention to ring drops for me.

    How long will it take him?

    Those that are saying no, you do understand that it gives you (Rings being infused and attuned) up to tier 5 food stats? Like +60 for power or condo or toughness.?

    That’s just for the rings. Including the armor and weapons brings it up another +40.

    Back piece, and accessory adds +15 more....

    I mean, don’t take it. But the +5’s can be bought with laurels. Add in a +1% damage to guards, lords and supervisors, for each of the infusions...

    Well.. or don’t.

    Well, that is part of the point of the thread, as it seems kinda obscure and I want people to know about it.

    Incidentally fractal dropped rings are kinda sucky because only core stats. Zerker is always nice but most of it is just salvage fodder.

    As I was mostly away when PoF came out I didn't notice them for a while. I also know people would rather not pve.

    Tbh anyone that plays WvW semi regularly probably has enough tickets for the WvW rings. Adding the third infusion with the mystic forge is pretty simple after that.

  • Yes, I have infused and attuned rings

    okay... most of these answer options are pretty useless. i'm not even sure now how a maxed out ascended ring looks - mine have only 2 infusion slots. (because was cheap to make.)

    i think there are three possible, but idk how to get the last. and i can only guess about what attuned means. normally i thought attuned is the slot where u put sigils in weapons / runes in armor. ascended rings don't have that... or?

    therefore, i think none of these answers would suit for me :bleep_bloop:

    /// after a second read... "Are your rings** fully infused?" as question and **"Yes, but my rings are **not **attuned or infused" doesn't make any sense, does it?

    Attuning requires a pve mastery, but it's a top level mastery that only requires 2 points and doesn't actually require any playing of fractals. Doing so allows you to slot one additional infusion in a ring, which gives a small stat boost.

    Each ring can hold up to 3 infusions. One comes with each ascended ring, and infuse/attune adds one more each. A lot of times people don't bother with the infusing step because it is overpriced and requires fractal mats, although wvw sells its own version of infused rings.

    As long as I've played this game since as early as you could before launch, my whole time has been almost entirely half assed while watching tv at the same time so I don't know half of the things I've gotten done. I'm also bad in that I don't know what a lot of my own skills are called but I know the icon and what they do for me. I know I got as much mastery as I could some place and put an extra slot of something on both my rings. That was all I could do without having to spend a bunch of time in modes I don't like. So in short, I'm not sure which option to chose on that poll.

    Yes, I have infused and attuned rings

    I love min/maxing - fully decked out in gear whenever possible. If I'm out of laurels I'll spend the tickets on WvW stat infusions - primarily bloodstone/mist trinkets as they allow for selectable stats whenever you want.

    For anyone that plays both PvP/WvW wanting asc trinks I recommend spending the PvP version for mist trinks (same with the Mist Capacitor PvP ONLY as its cheaper to reslect stats this way as opposed to spending memories of battle). Another reason was a while ago they mentioned WvW tickets probably having more uses later (skin/weapon set etc) on so may as well save them...

    ah well, so i have infused rings, but i don't understand - how is attuning an infused ring expensive? it costs the same as adding the 2nd slot, which is kinda nothing - unless i misinterpreted something here. i only use the WvW-infusions tho, since they are cheap and the others from the fractals... well, require doing fractals. i did bunch of those, but i'm really not into that. they are just repetitive farming runs :sleeping:

    edit: i'm kinda maximizing fetishist, so my main aims were always getting ascended gear + as many infusion slots as possible, but i found the wikis always pretty confusing in terms of "upgrading stuff".

    also, the upgrading costs are weird. some mats you gets flooded with, others are rare; i feel WvW is overall a good material farm though.

    Attuning isn't expensive. It's the cheaper option to add an infusion slot to a ring with only 1 slot. It is infusing that has always been more expensive, but that's not so much an issue anymore since one can buy infused rings with 2 slots now in WvW.

    The commemorative sprockets from the memory boxes can be traded in for the fractal bits to infuse rings and back pieces if someone isn't interested in grinding fractals.

    i have enemy models on "standard models" so i don't get distracted by the glowing stuff. all u see is the red/blue etc from that one infusion thingy that way; only downpart is that u never know if u fought someone before, but on the other hand provides better fps and less lag most of the time.

    Very cool. It helps enough that it’s basically a full time food buff. Could it be a difference in a fight? Maybe.

    Skill will do more, but it’s a nice buff to help. And maybe it gives you more time each fight to learn from each fight.

  • Yes, I have infused and attuned rings

    as one of the newer players, i built up a warrior, rev, firebrand, scrapper (and their two other elite specs for roaming) for and with mostly WvW, and i kinda have to say there there is a dmg difference... my newest is the rev and has still not full gear on, but between the lv40 trinkets that the rev did wear from leveling (chars older, just not used it) and a switchover to zerker + ascended trinkets yet, there surely is a difference.

    i really like that ascended gear isn't soulbound, but then again i switch chars too frequent and therefore run most time still a "underequipped" char... it would be easier if all trinkets and gear you own would be available to dis-equip / re-equip all the time in the "equipment"-tab, but guess that would make it a bit too easy for players (that don't have each ascended piece ten times)? :pensive:
