    The dumpest thing? Not powerleveling a character to 80 at launch and buy a massive ammount of gems, only managed to get 6000 gems as a lvl 30 character

    Believing precursors actually drop?
    No, but seriously. I sold a permanent hair style contract to buy a precursor and a headstart in the materials.
    Kind of regret it since i don't use the skin or its stat change ability

    They do drop, I got the axe whilst doing an activity in the verdant brink.

    LIES! DECEIT!

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    I don't remember any Anet interventions;
    Salvaging a precursor in my early days of playing 5yrs ago, because I didn’t know what it was.

    Jumping from a high point expecting to be able to glide, not seeing the glider disabled icon appear... or pre core Tyria enabled gliding.

    Selling something cheaply only to see it skyrocket in price days/weeks later.

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

    Fortunately I've yet to need Anet intervention for my mistakes.

    One obnoxius thing I keep doing is expecting to use gliding or mounts when I am in the Home instance gathering nodes, or play in older story-instances, which leads me to take unnecessary fall damage a bunch of times. :p Brain, when will you learn!!

  • I decided I wanted to try Marshal stats on my Weaver so I crafted 6 insignia's so I could swap the stats on my current set of ascended gear... Problem is, I crafted 6 Nadijeh's Marshal Insignia's (ascended) instead of 6 Insignia's of the Spearmarshal (exotic)... 18 damask patches... RIP.

  • In an excess of optimism, I purchased storage panels I couldn't use. Apparently I thought the Account Vault -- which I still think of as the Xunlai Chest ;) -- had unlimited (or at least greatly expandable) real estate and I just needed to pop in a few more in order to have allll the storage I needed. Right.

    (CS helped me out.)

    I never thought I would see a GM here. Thanks for your courage Gaile!

    Used a 100g recipe (Keeper's Staff?) on a character that couldn't make it. This was long before recipes went account-wide. I may have gotten a second one to replace it, expecting that to be the case forever :/

    I didn't get intervention for that.

    Deciding Immobulus would be my final scepter and ultimate goal to craft, back when it was worth 2000 gold.

    Stack thousands of silver and gold ingots looking forward for a price increase in HoT... and then at PoF... still waiting.

    Acquired many stacks of refined T6 leather in hopes for a price increase after HoT. It did rise! But I sold it right away for a rather small profit compared to what I could have gotten later. Talking about hundreds of gold, if not a thousand.

    Bought a variety of black lion weapon skins over time and held on to them, since it seemed to work for easy money. Their prices never increased, in fact they dropped.

    I'm sure I'm missing a lot more.

    Along those lines, I tried buying up supply of a fairly expensive item in hopes of adjusting the price upwards.
    Instead, the market corrected the other direction. HARD. If I were more paranoid I'd say I walked into a trap.

    How does that work, do you like just walk over there at lunch time with some dohnuts and be all, hey wanna hook me up, I made a boo boo, or do they actually make you fill out the same forum as us :p

    On another point, we should have way more storage than we do ;) maybe you could nudge someone about that...

  • Well, yeah. I still shake my head about this one. When GW2 was released, I played the pre release and then for about a month an a half. So, until about mid November or so. I was having trouble wrapping my mind around the game. But one thing I was sure about, the TP was evil and just a way for Anet to steal my gold.(face palm) Anywho, I walked away from the game due to work, I was traveling, off and on for about a year. I spent very little time home and hotel connections just suck. But on a rare occasion, in Mid March, I was home and decided to play for the weekend. I got a precursor drop, the sword. Woot right? Well, no. I was dirt poor, maybe a gold to my name at that point. I saw the thing that said, used in the crafting of a legendary weapon" and thought to myself, I am never going to do that (7 legendries later), so I sold it to the merchant because the TP was evil. I am not even sure I could have afforded the listing price. I forgot all about it until 2 years later when I got my second pre drop. I don't talk about it much and for all intense purposes I refer to my second drop as my first. Do'uh
