  1. While I agree that Mirage is busted, these permastealthed deadeyes are a meme build that doesn't do enough damage to kill any of my toons.I seriously end up just walking away from them. Engaging them is nothing but getting trolled.I don't see how any heavy armored toon in WvW is having a problem with them. With a little toughness and vit they litterally become mosquitos buzzing in your ear.
  2. You don't need max participation to get the Gift. Progress is faster at higher tiers but you gain reward track progress even at Tier 1 participation, which you can easily get (and maintain) it by doing exactly what you listed - capturing points, killing veterans and players. Or you can use the dailies to get potions which progress the reward track by a fixed amount even if you're not in WvW at the time. @mindcircus.1506 said: You don't seem to understand the difference between "punish" and "not reward". I take that as a punishment. Lets say i farm max participation in 2 minutes and then lea
  3. You don't seem to understand the difference between "punish" and "not reward".
  4. Also important to add that the WvW dailies are often much faster and easier than the PvE ones. Big Spender, aside, it's usually much faster and easier to get Monument Master, Land Claimer, and Veteran Creature Slayer than it is to get Event Completer or Activity Participation.
  5. Yesterday I logged in and got 8 Mystic Coins, then I took 9 minutes and did my dailies.Ten mins, ten gold. This game throws money at you. I don't understand why I constantly see posts like yours.
  6. No one has ever had to grind WvW.Many have chosen to in order to chase a reward.
  7. @Kallist.5917 said: They are meant to expose you to a wide variety of activities in this game, not to give you a reason to farm your favorite mode over and over.The fact you don't understand this is surprising.
  8. Scrapper is a tank spec in PvE. You mitigate hits with control via stuns knockdowns and blocks.In WvW Scrapper is a capable small group roamer via utilities and in a zerg, a very efficient group condition cleanser. The "problem" with Scrapper is that it is not a simple option. If you look at the builds others have posted here they rely on combo fields to really do the magic. Because it is not braindead easy like Scourge or Mirage, and because the current PvE meta is still about Chrono tanking, people don't always see the value in it. If you want a good spec to carry less skilled DPS players t
  9. You seem to have a problem understanding the difference between "not rewarding" and "punishing".That said, this conversation is about two years old and brings nothing new to the table.
  10. Go play Wildstar for a few hours and see how it should be done in an MMO.That said, as you mentioned, we already have two housing options in this game. A third is not needed.
  11. Good point actually. I'm not GW1 vet, so the whole Envoy thing isn't quite clear for me. Envoys are the guides for the dead that are tied specifically to Canthan lore. In Tyria (and most probably Elona as well, seeing the PoF story) their role is replaced by Grenth's servants (like the Reapers and the Judge). @"mindcircus.1506" said:If you want Legendary Armor, do something Legendary. Get together nine of your friends, watch videos, tune your build, and gear up as best you can.

  12. There is a significant number of players who only do world bosses one after the other. And I don't mean Teq or Triple Trouble. I mean they taxi from one low threat "Press 1" encounter to the next like Shadow Behemoth, the Karka Queen, Jungle Wurm ect. They have tons of fun doing it, but mainly it's a reason to be social, fire off dance emotes and drop Fun Boxes. Nothing at all wrong with it, but they are literally just hopping from one boss they autoattack to the next, stopping only to RP in a quaagan tonic. Do you think this playstyle should also have a path to legendary armor? Do you think s
  13. No it is not.In a Sandbox game the players create the world and narrative through their actions. Examples of this are EVE Online, Black Desert and the now defunct Star Wars Galaxies. GW2 is a Theme Park MMO in which the developers create the world and narrative like World of Warcraft or Star Wars The Old Republic. In GW2 we see a castle that is already built and are told Jennah is the Queen. Then we are given a story about why she lives in the castle. In a Sandbox MMO the players are given the tools to build the castle and their actions and influence among other players indicate if they are t
  14. Sounds great for the game, that should be encouraged. Can you think of a reason why it shouldn't? Why not? Now I know you're just trolling.

  16. Wow. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed! I don't know anything about video editing, so I just hit record and then upload. What you see on my channel is exactly what happened in the game. No special effects or anything cut out. Yeah that's what was impressive. You could have focused on a bounty that was a little more isolated to make it easier, but seeing you handle all the other mobs like the hydras in the first video at the same time was what made that great to me.Good stuff. I'm going to try it today at some point on one of my toons.
  17. Super impressive videos, I watched a few and I have to say that is really great stuff. I expected to find some heavily cherry-picked footage, but it's clear this is a good build and skill.Mostly skill.I am inspired. Thanks.
  18. In my experience, it usually hovers between 500g and 800g. What difference does it make if I pay ANET to let me auto complete the hearts of if I pay another player to do them for me? Is it really that important that someone manually completes them? The difference is that getting someone else to "do it for you" requires you to give your login information to them which is against the TOS.
  19. Why Mag? Do you have a burning desire to get farmed all day and then run emotes to people that you take out 3v1?
  20. The flaw in your logic is right here. You pull a number like "9/10" out of the air and make a supposition about their needs and actions that is inaccurate.I'm a pretty average player, I personally sell my t4 mats. If you drive the price lower with afk farming, then when I go to cash out by selling them at TP then I make less money. If you were actively playing the game then awesome....but you aren't. You're autoattacking, tabbing out and making sure you are only active enough to respond to a GM.If Anet recognized this as a viable playstyle, then awesome.But they don't.If they did there would b

  22. If you are a player not working on a legendary, the materials you gather are worth much less because of these "players". The price of any materials that drop while you play normally has been lowered when you go to TP them. This argument that these people are "helping" others is false.
