You're letting people optimize the fun out of the game. The verdant brink meta never gets done because the map is full of people sitting AFK. There could be plenty of people interested in the full met

I miss times when i could get VB meta to t5 several times a day, it's probably unpopular opinion but i think that first part of VB meta is best meta-event in a game for a player that want be actively

Also, regardless of whether or not it helps the meta, anything that lets you AFK and farm gold is unhealthy for the game. Even if you aren't AFK, which is technically bannable but seemingly unenforced

There are those on their necro who can farm endlessly without being at their computer as the game allows their minions to reset their inactivity timer. Is that legit?

 

 

It's absolutely legit because A-Net directly said, yes it's ok

What's not ok is to use a 3rd party tool

Exploits are declared by A-Net and nobody else.

 

LoL Found the guy making thousands of gold multiboxing bauble farm. 

Relax, chief.  I never said otherwise and this is clearly not an exploit.  Still, ANet should really do something about it as multibox AFK farm is not a good look and it's gotten to the point where it regularly disrupts the normal flow of the map.

Guess someone's pissed at heralds,lol. You can complete T4s on other weeks too, why do it during bauble week? Plus this is one more reason why gw2 is a casual game, though its not much gold you get some gold while also working irl.

 

What i hate, and absolutely despise in a game is multi boxing, I seen many players with multiple accounts just afk farming.

Just accusing people of illegal actions like AFK is going nowhere.

It also violates at least 2 rules of conduct and this is the point where the mods usually close the thread

It's a good thing I didn't do any of that.  But I'm sure we'd like to stop further discussion against bauble farming.  There's a lot of gold on the line here!

Until A-Net says otherwise it's legal


And yet it’s something people are still able to do in the game. There’s no backtracking for you or the other poster. 
 

They don’t need to explicitly state every exact scenario imaginable in order for them all to be against the rules.

Not sure you know how the cash shop and gems work.

The Gems bought with gold, are already paid for with real cash by someone.

Whoever owns those gems after that purchase is not of their concern.

My point is, they are missing out on Gem sales. Why spend money in the cash shop if you can just bot with no consequence?

That's why players are supposed to report such activity.  Only Anet can determine whether or not such things are against the rules.

Report and move on.  I really can't believe that this thread has gone on as long as it has.

That doesn't even matter.  It wasn't against the rules the other times they killed farms like this.  Once it grows to a certain proportion, it's clearly not intended and they usually get around to fixing it sooner or later.  For example, the engi turret farm in the centaur village.  They added those frequent area effects to force people to not stand in one place AFK farming.

Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t. Regardless, this wasn’t the point of my post.

The fact that this has been on the general forum page for all this time means anet is going to nerf it. So like doric farm, istan farm , every other farm it will be nerfed into oblivion. 

Why? Unlike those this is only one week out of three and not something that can be done constantly.

*Sigh* Every gem paid for with gold in the store is bought by someone else for real life money.  Yes, there are the gems from achievements, but that's every 5k AP and it's only $5 worth of gems.  It's in no way, shape, or form going to change the price of gems even considering all the players above  30k AP (which would be 3k gems that comes out to $37.50 USD or not even the box cost of the game when it initially launched.)  All these bots, afkers, etc. do is drive up the cost of gold to gems which, in turn, makes it more appealing  for people to mass buy gems and turn them into gold (Or just  turn what they have left in their wallet into gold.)
