I think I've earned a title. I don't have a single legendary, so I became one. (Part two)

I think I've earned this. This took a LOT of work, time, and my own money in many paypal expenditures.
I literally don't have the attention span for the big farming things like legendaries. I managed to make one precursor once and that took me forever and cost wayyy more gold than it was worth!
I'm happy though! Wherever I go people ask me "HOW?!?!?" and follow me around.
This is Guild Wars 2 to me.
Thanks to anyone who sees this and likes it! :)

    There you go, I think it was where you were hosting the images. I guess the forums wants trusted sources, like Imgur, to show images.

    I'm sure it's OK, probably burnt out the pixels on the centre of his monitor by now.

    Well, that's one way to make an obese character. Looks like a green meatball with legs. 😂

  • I do believe 'Grossly Incandescent' would be an appropriate title for what you've accomplished here.

  • Rhyse.8179Rhyse.8179 Member ✭✭✭

    Please tell me your character name is "JJ Abrams."

  • rather than "JJ Abrams" I'm really hoping it's a variation of "Pacman"

    Man, there's a lot of anger there. I love how I look. I don't care if others think it's in poor taste...to me this took a REALLY long time. I've been slowly evolving my character with whatever skins I could find. I've been earning infusions. I did all this with a direct purpose in mind originally (I play bunker tank in WvW, and I find it psychologically aggroes players to attack me, allowing me to do my job).
    This isn't "for the lols"
    It's because I truly have put in a ton of time and effort for a goal.

    I cant see how skins matter at all since you cant see them with that light show going on, this is one reason in favor to make infusions only seen on the player end, if you want a disco ball go for it but it wont hurt anyone else.

    How does it feel to play with 2 FPS average?

    I started with skins. When I get home from work I'll make a video or post some pics or something. I don't get why Reddit is filled with so many haters. It doesn't hurt anyone, I've never had a complaint, people are always asking me how I did it and what it takes. Some redditors are demanding infusion restrictions...like seriously? Combined with achievements and other in game content I've also put about $1,300 into this character.

    This is a picture at my maximum, nearly optimal glow (some zones you can take advantage of where the lighting generators are) but without all the special temporary effects applied it's significantly less. I've had arena net guild members ask me how I did it and tell them but I don't tell other players all the secrets, because I don't want it to be nerfed.

    I can play for hours and not see someone bright. So I don't get the issue. :/

    There's several other much more obnoxious effects in the game.

  • I'm also a casual player lol I just don't have the attention span for legendaries like others.

    Literally never have an fps drop. Don't even know how people can. :/

    As a WvW player primarily I have to say: kitten..,,, that is truly brilliant in EVERY sense of the word....

  • Hey you worked for it, you can wear the look all you want even if it is a bit of an eyesore.... granted an unique one.... You go you...."Shine bright like a diamond" (or supernova ;) )

  • I think the more infusions you have on, the less likely interacting with NPCs actually works.

    I had to google it to find the reference. I feel old. I'd rather go for a "Shine on you crazy diamond".
    Because the OP is also a bit crazy (no offense, a good madness :D ). I wouldn't be able to see the enemies and time my dodges with all that light (and that's also why I wish I could hide animations and glowing effects from other players, legendaries included), but if you can fight without issue, I'm glad that you reached your goal :)
