    “Precursors actually drop from creatures”
    Thats just complete skritt talk. Anet puts a few on the trading post, and when you hear rumours of people who got precursors dropped, they got one from a dev with the contract that they have to say “it dropped from a creature”

    They actually do have a miniscule chance to drop from creatures, and players in my guild have gotten them that way. The bit about Anet putting them on the TP is absurd.
    Before they added collections, most came from the MF by tossing in 4 rares or 4 exotics. Since release I've gotten 5 precursors that way, and I usually try upconverts with lower value level 75+ rares & exotics about 3 to 5 times a week on average. I got 1 other pre from a PvP rank-up chest so they can come from those as well. So there are various ways to get them in game, but the odds are really, really low.

    Sorry to say, but then people in your guild were approached by anet and given precursors, with the instruction to pretend it dropped from a creature

    That's just being silly. Mobs can drop them, or at least they did at one time. I haven't heard of anyone getting one from a mob drop recently, but at least during the first few years a few people got them that way.

    That's how I got Storm. /shrug
    Bound it right when Wardrobe came out to unlock the skin. ..didn't see the other text until after I bound it, so I went ahead and made it, sold it, and bought a merchant contract and hair contract. :3

    Well if they want to duel, don't do it in World V World, an open battle where my objective is to kill the enemy. The literal reason for the game mode :P

    Just thought of another:
    I was tagged up doing a world boss, helping low level players, A few others and myself were mounted and a random guy ran up to us (around level 20) and said:

    We had to explain mounts were not pay to win and in fact, part of the game, unlockable by playing the story. It went on for some time.

    To be fair, you have to buy the PoF expansion to have access to these unlockable mounts.

    To be fair, every MMO includes "pay to win elements" in expansions, as in expansions raise your level and thus make you more powerful. Expansions were never factored into pay to win ever, in any MMO. No one calls WoW pay to win, even though without buying the new expansion you're behind in power. Expansions are your buy in for the game. Cash shop purchases are pay to win if you can buy power.

    This isn't remotely true. There have even been a few examples saved to video.

    It's a pretty common situation when drop rates are a million to one: most people won't get the drop, a tiny number of players will.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    I've had a precursor drop from a creature and my wife has had two. One was from a ogre in WvW. They can drop from anything that can drop an exotic 80.

    Heard these doozies from a supposedly experienced player I met a couple years ago...

    After suggesting that they use a nearby crafting station to access their bank:
    "I don't have crafting trained on any of my characters, so I can't access those."

    After finally convincing them to try it anyways:
    "Wow, I never knew I could access my bank from this. Even the materials! Just a sec while I deposit those too."

    After asking about why they don't just use the Deposit All option for mats, then realizing they don't know what I'm talking about, and finally explaining there's the Deposit All option under the gear symbol above the inventory window, or they could right click to deposit a selected stack of mats in their inventory:
    "WHAT! YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I've been manually depositing all this stuff ever since I started playing."

    I came from GuildWars1, so the bank was named "Xunlai chest", I played a free account manually leveling to 80, very slowly, never could figure out where the Xunlai chest was, I used the deposit all, but due to limited bag space, no Trading post, I deleted black lion tickets/scraps, a ton of random things, someone showed me where the bank was after I was level 80, was nice finding all those mats.

    This is not absurd, it's just true.

    It is absurd. There are some things in the game I will never be able to do, there are things others will not be able to. There could be any number of reasons why someone cannot accomplish something; physical limitations, time constraints, etc, and even with trying over and over, I or they may still not complete it. To have someone automatically conclude that the reason is because they are not good or need to learn to play is dismissive and callous.

    From this perspective. But I see another point here: Overcome a challenge. Without learning a pattern or some rules, you won't be able. Learning something is a general rule in life. You could argument that you don't like to learn during leisure time but what I see is a development in gaming in general that everything has to be served on a silver platter. People feel eligible to get everything they want without any hassle or 'work'. I remember playing games back in the 90ies and I couldn't finish a lot of games on all those consoles, but if I did I had the feeling of achievement and joy to finally overcome the intricacies. This is - for me - an important part of gaming: the challenge. Not always and I surely don't need it anytime. But a game can't serve every purpose and every need.

    As of short: git gud etc. is absolutely true: people are lazy and don't want to learn anything and they want it fast without hassle. And that's why games get toned down and get streamlined which I think is the downfall of gaming in general. At least there are a lot of indie games which do the opposite. Also, there are a lot of videos from noobs playing Dark Souls and overcome the hardest parts in the game out of will, and that's a great thing.
