firehawk.3986 Posted March 3 Share Posted March 3 Let me preface this rant by saying I'm still playing the game. I started back in Guild Wars 1 beta and enjoy the game and the community. I was initially ecstatic when I saw that ANet added the Mythic Weapon Choice box to the Black Lion Statuette vendor - until I saw the item lists for 150 Black Lion Statuettes (~1 statue per Black Lion Chest with a low chance for more). For reference, prior methods to obtain the skins included 2000 gem packages, as well as the Elite Weapons Voucher (for 1200 gems), which was only available for one day during last year's March sale. While some could argue the idea of the "Mythic" set is to be tough/difficult to get, this price doesn't even come close to being in line with the previous prices of the skins. It takes, quite literally, thousands of gold (more than most Legendary weapons) in order to get a single Mythic skin. Anet-Chelsea (designer of some of the Gen 2 Legendary weapons and the Mythic set) even commented that legendary weapons, such as Pharus, have much more going for them than their Mythic weapon counterparts. This would indicate that the Mythic weapons should be cheaper to acquire than a Legendary weapons, but that doesn't add up with current pricing. I would honestly be happy if the Elite Weapons Voucher made a come-back in the March sales or was available at a similar pricing to what it was originally, 1200 gems/weapon. I know this was still considered high priced by many on Reddit and in-game last year, but it's leagues ahead of the current ~8400 gems/weapon price. 2 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
