It's been said before, but after seeing it for myself I'm going to say it again. I was going to start crafting ascended gear, but going through the sheer amount of chancy, and difficult to get junk - it's just making my head spin. I don't know if having dyslexia is part of the issue, but it doesn't help with how many steps is needed. After awhile it all runs together, and turns into gibberish.
I've given up on trying to do raids. And as for fractals, after my last experience I'm staying away from those. I'm not sure what to do now.
