    One of the best moments from the personal story of GW2, and it's entirely missable as its on a branching path. You get reacquainted with an old relic from GW1... most folks won't care about spoilers but just in case.

    For those of us that haven't played GW1, what's the relic?

    It's what the charr used to destroy/conquer the human kingdom of Ascalon (during the intro to the original Guild Wars) before they headed south toward Orr. The modern (GW2) charr nation is built on those ruins, although much of the land has become more pleasant again.

    It turned this into this.

    And the lesson is: don't steal from Charr.

    Custom bits and pieces. Mostly the Dark set with Tier 2 human cultural shoulders.

    You can get a lv 80 set cheap in Orr from Karma venders. Not max stats but very good.

    It's basically the Guild Wars equivalent of a nuclear bomb.
    And you get to use it against the Elder Dragons if you pick the Priory's attack plan in Orr.

    I wish they did a better job in hinting at what the object was, still, all of the story missions are pretty sweet from what I've seen.

    I liked the storymode until about level 60 or so when you tag along with Trehearne or whatever his name is. Dude is a really wooden voice actor and fighting Risen after Risen after Risen with my Mesmer was not fun. I enjoyed the smaller stories a lot more, like the one where I got to
    discover that a future me had destroyed the world by unleashing the Steam Creatures and that I had to stop him

    ^-- Um, maybe put that in spoiler tags? Especially since this is the screenshot thread, not the GW2 thread?

    Yeah, same. My charr worked her way up from nothing to command, then The Prophecy says Trahearne is the chosen one and he's given his sword and command on a silver plate while I play squire.
    Having a difficult time finishing the +75 personal story, because I've both lost interest in what's going on and because fighting Risen after Risen got old a long time ago. I don't think my character has actually had speaking lines in several missions now...

    You should really finish up the story, the last couple arcs for the invasion of Orr are pretty fantastic. Here's my character getting ready to lead a squad of sylvari snipers to go headshot some giants.

    I don't actually agree with that critique, especially since you get a huge amount of respect from pretty much all the big shots of GW2 post Claw Island.

    Human. I've heard some people claim T-Jesus comes outta left field for non-Sylvari, but I didn't think so.
    It takes at least six or seven missions to even get to the, "you are chosen to cleanse Orr," plot. And that role nothing to do so much with battling the Dragons, that's your job.

    Basically regardless of race, your status as the number two guy in the whole Pact works very well for an MMO. You're a badass, everyone knows it. You're the one who leads the impossible missions. Trahearne is the guy who has to deal with all the boring politics, and inspirational crap. I just get to stab dragons in the face.

    In most cases. They have some restrictions though. Currently you cant transmog a legendary. I hope they change this, because it's some bullshit.

    Yeah. I wanted the lightsaber graphic, but the only one that's one-handed is a world BoE drop that sells for crazy cash.

    Monks can use one-handed swords, by the way. I am hoping to dual-wield if I can get a second slicer from Horseman.

    I saw a dude the other day with dual swords from the horseman. Both 470's, not transmogged. That's insanely lucky; or maybe monks/rogues have a higher drop rate or something? Either way I was pretty jealous. I had considered leveling my rogue to 89 to get those but decided nah.

    I haven't seen anything, sword or helmet on my guys this holiday yet. In fact my pally hasn't ever even seen the str ring drop, let alone lose it.

    No I have been trying every day but I havent got one yet. Just a bunch of Sinister Squashlings (which I already know) and some plate (which I cant use).

    I got one sword on day two or three, and haven't seen one since then.

    On the other hand, I got like two or three of those damn helms.
