  1. nope. You can however use an infusion extraction device to extract it and reuse it e.g. on a different character. Just so it doesnt go completely to waste.
  2. yeah nerf the flavour of the month!! how dare they not let mewin when I smash my head against the keyboard!!! (less salty reaction: Balance is a goal that in its essence is unreachable. I still do not understand why people always want something done with the opposing team when they are the one who performed badly. Balancing things that are OP is important, but it should not be the thing you should focus on. focus on getting better!)
  3. A few remarks Jade sea in GW2 has a major spoiler. I find it a bit unfair to judge this as a break of lore before the actual story is released. The most important reason for the difference between Echovald and the jade sea would be what happened to it and what it originally was. The forest was a forest untill it petrified. Allready during GW1 we saw some return of plantlife. It is likely that it returned to a forest over this amount of time. Just look at how Tjernobile changed in recent years and how it will look over 200 years if we leave it alone. The nature of the landscape is ideal
  4. The only thing NFT stands for in my abbreviation list is Not Fit for Tyria! As a side note: It is very easy to call people who are critical, stupid or uninformed. But as mentioned. Being a crazy fanboy of crypto currency, you should also know that the opposite can be true as well. Crypto currency as a concept is very interesting and the technology is very interesting, however the negative side effects show also it's darkness. when someone is over-enthousiastic about it, it shows they are ill-informed when the downsides of the technology are very much visable.
  5. I do not think there will ever be a Guild Wars 3 The simple reason is that Tyria as we know it is done. All it will be is: Player 1: I want the game to go to Ascalon Player 2: I want the game to go to the Crystal Desert Players 3: I want the game to go to Shing Jae Player 4: I want the game to go to Shing Jae, but like it was in GW1 cause I disliked Shing Jae in GW2 etc. etc. We are allready walking in an update copy of GW1. How many versions of Tyria do you want? The only way to make clear that Tyria is done is when they create a different world and start a new story all
  6. I've quoted two parts of your post that are most relevant in my opinion. In short: you are judging a system based on a story a friend told you? Every story told has a sender and a medium. Both are telling one side of this story. There is also the side of the person who has been harassing your friend and off course, Arenanet's side of the story. first off all, I symphatise to your friend for having a bad experience and I symphatise with you on losing a friend. I'm a great fan of Harry Potter and my favourite quote is "Off course it is happening inside your mind, but how on earth does i
  7. Everything is possible. But I think it is important to make a difference between the margonites in GW1 and the original margonites. The ones in GW1 where all demons enslaved by abadon. Although they still exist, I doubt they will return as their story has been told and is over. A different aspect are the original margonites. We know very little about them. afaik it is unknown if some of them survived or if there are any traces of them in the world. It would be nice to have that part of lore further explored, but I still do not think it will happen in EoD or in a LS directly afterwards
  8. I understand the frustration, but there is also such thing as privacy. Let's use the hacked account example. You report illegal activities. Anet sees it is a hacked account and might even alert the original owner that his security is breached. The original owner takes steps to improve his personal online security and regains control over his account. All you see is that this account is still active. But do you think it is ok for them to tell the reporter what happened? Or give any information beyond: "Thanks,. we'll look into it" (which is what they are allready saying). Another thing no
  9. There is no such thing that makes one luyckier then others unless it is the statistical luck anyone can have. On a rare occasion I also met people who seems to be extremely lucky. They also had very simular behavioral profiles Obviously, some people can be extremely lucky. Statistics even demand this. But it also happens that people are not always honest about their wealth and luck. I never questioned them and if needed I congratulated them when they where once more "lucky". For the rest I kept up the respect and ignored it.
  10. To me there are three reasons to take a port and one to reduce tipping. 1: I really can't do the puzzle ever: 5g 2: It is a really annoying puzzle. I managed it in the past, but it is a daily: 2,5g 3: I can easily do this, but a port is present and it is convinient: 50s When the port is given by mesmer whom I doubt he/she did it herself (e.g. when the port is done by a mesmer being member of a certain guild in EU), the tip is reduced by 50%
  11. the heart of the priory is a very easy one. Very close to the waypoint.
  12. I think they do enough, but the issue is hard to resolve. You say you see multiple accounts doing it. But how are you sure it is the same account over and over and still used for botting? The way botting accounts work is that they are part of a bigger issue called goldselling. The organisations behind them operate on many accounts and it is calculated that many of them are also removed over time. Some examples: 1: They obtain accounts using hacked accounts. These are existing accounts, but hacked by botters and then used to bot. 2: They create new accounts using stolen credit card
  13. I've always been a big fan of Babylon five. It took me three years to climb from underneath my rock and find out that one of my favourite actors from that show voiced my main toon in GW2
  14. "progress for the sake of progress should be discouraged." I know who said this, but it is true. You should not desire progress when there is no need to have such progress. There can be a ton of opinions why you think arenanet could do better, but they are irrellevant if the other stakeholders are happy. There are as usual three stakeholders involved. 1: the owners/investors. They want to make enough profit> 2: the customers. They want to play a fun game 3: the employees. They want to have a job that gives sattisfaction Each of us has small part in being a single customer (a
  15. I think you mean joining a different shard of an open world map. There is an option to change shards. You need to be in a party or squad with someone in the shard you want to join and then you can right-click his name and choose "join in". The main issue people have is that this often does not work as they want to do it with popular shards. I think two things should be explained better here. First is how the dynamics of shards work. Shards are created and abanded on demand. So if a map gains popularity, there is a new shard created. When popularity drops, some shards are drained a
