As I look onto the Eternal Battlegrounds from my perch on Stonemist, and reminisce about the battles I've fought and the wars I've won, it came to my attention that there is currently something rotten in the state of WvW. I sat there in agony, wracking my brain as to what could have been the issue, when finally it came to me, in a fit of brilliance. With gusto I rushed to my quarters, and retrieved my calendar from beneath a mountain of my belongings. With fanatical speed I flipped past the months dates blurring together as I reached my goal. December of 2018. Scanning the page my finger lands on a date I've circled in bloodstone red, the 11th of December. Inscribed in the small square which seemed as big as the world to me at the time, were the simple words, "Shattered Aegis: The damage of this trait has been increased by 20% in PvE only. This trait can no longer critically hit.". With a blur it all dawned on me, as if the revelation was in front of my eyes this entire time. Throwing away the calendar I rushed to the Siege Provisioner and pleaded to borrow his abacus. As the small beads clicked and clacked and my finger carved through the dirt, my maths came to a final conclusion. It has been Four Hundred and Three days since shattered aegis was nerfed. 403. Three small digits that opened my eyes to everything in such a simple way. I come to you today brothers to inform you of what I've discovered, and that without the trait to bind us, we will continue to spiral into depravity.
