    Well I'm already a 350 armorsmith. I'll probably just finish leveling it to 400 and get my armor that way. I have about 40k karma and 20 silver in my name.

    I'm waiting for people to talk about the drop rates of HW items before opening mine. Which also means I'll know it's safe to open.

    A level 80 can kit themselves out in full masterwork (green) equipment for less than 50 silver total.

    I've managed to upgrade three pieces to rare (yellow), at a cost of about 5g total. It would probably take 10g for a complete rare (yellow) set at level 80.

    Exotics (gold/orange) are ridiculous in cost.

    From live feed:

    ...
    - New locations

    They said we'd get that in updates for GW 1, and we only got Sorrows Furnace and a PVE reworking of some PvP maps for Tombs when they moved all PvP to the Battle Isles. Granted, they went all out on Sorrows Furnace with two locations, new weapon types (uniques), and a totally new boss with a unique mechanic for fighting it, but still.

    I'll believe this when I see it. I was very disappointed when I saw such a huge amount of the Tyria map unused.

    How does Putrid Mark work exactly? Does it effect all foes and allies in area, or just some? And if there's like one ally and three foes, does it remove all conditions from the ally and copy them to all three foes?

    Also, more generally, what are good necromancer builds for pve/dungeons/wvw? Conditions - build with scepter/dagger + staff, BiP+epidemic etc seems obvious, what else is good?

    Is the general consensus that you're going to be buying Black Lion Keys? I don't mind plopping some money down here and there, but if it gets to be that you more or less need to do it, that would dampen my spirits.

    I like that you can trade gems for gold. I bought $20 worth of gems and turned in 100 gems for 50sp on my newbie little character. I felt like a baller. This makes gold sellers pretty much a thing of the past. I'd rather people who want to buy gold in the game do so while supporting said game rather than some off-shore sweat shop.

    You can buy a full level 80 rare armour set for ~70 silver, add in another 40 silver for 3 weapons (2 hander + 1 main + off hand). You can easily kit yourself out for 1.2 G with rares.

    You can get 1 G by mining all the orichalcum ore nodes once a day.

    10g for a complete yellow set?! what

    What were you buying? Yellows range from 20s-50s

    Six armor peices and three weapons at 20 to 50s each. Call that 2 to 3g.

    Plus signets and runes (total of six runes and three signets) all of which cost another 20 to 50s each, closer to 50s for the popular ones like Berserker's. That's another 2 to 4g right there.

    And dont forget you also need five accessories (two earrings, two rings, one amulet) all of which are 30 to 50s each. Add in another 2 to 3g.

    And finally, one low level stone for the back slot plugin. (This is essentially free. I mention it only because many people dont realize you can slot in a any single-stat stone for a tiny tiny additional boost.)

    On the other hand, crafting at a skill of 375+ most definitely is not free; I'd estimate around 3 to 5g to get that level (I think going from 350 to 375 was nearly 1g) plus cloth and trophies for the rare armor itself.

    If you were incredibly frugal, took the lowest cost pieces on the BLTP, didn't craft a thing, took completely general non-stacked stats and and were okay with looking like a clown, you might be able to get a full set of rares for as low as 5 or 6g. I would suggest that a set of matched Masterworks would be more effective for a lot less gold, but that's just me.

    For me specifically, I really wanted one particular armor skin, so I dropped 1g 88s on one merchant piece. No, that's not typical and not completely cost-effective, but I like playing Dress-Up Barbie in-game.

    Maybe I'm just incredibly bad at shopping.

    So then it's far better, if I am going to buy gems, to spend them on vanity items? Rather than opening Black Lion Chests in hopes of finding a rare?

    How much gold do you generally get in game per $1 on gems?

    Well, from Gw2spidy:
    100 gems sells for 55 s 41 c .
    100 gems costs 76 s 70 c to buy.
    100 gems costs 1.25 USD to buy.
    1 g costs 2.26 USD to buy through gems.

    I believe it's technically cheaper to buy from botters (closer to 1-2g/$1 I think), but obviously that's not something we'd like to support.

    There's been an overall trend of rising costs for gems though. In fact, the more gold/inflation botters inject into the game, the more valuable gems become, thus they end up driving themselves out of the market.

    76s is the high end for gold>gems... I got a batch closer to 68s last night (Char slot #8! Altitis cured!)


    On an unrelated note, I have begun transitioning chars to repping NICE. Yay for spots being open!

    Does anyone have a link to that spreadsheet with all the armours and what stats they have? It has been posted before but I can't find it.

    I want to find an armour set that is Power/Toughness/Condition damage or something close to it.

    Lord knows I'd like a do-over on getting a chance to fight some of you guys. I should be ~70 by then and I'll try not to have terribad gear for the occasion.

    If you guys end up with enough free slots in [NICE] to start considering adding people on other servers, I'm game to form a group of resistance fighters on Maguuma. :D

    Oh, you know what it is. Whenever I have used it the channeling has always been interrupted so the effect rarely ever revived me, but this time when I used it I was reviving myself from falling damage and there wasn't anything to interrupt me.

    Or something.

    In my experience, the only time I ever rally with 4 is when whatever killed me wanders off after something (else) shiny.

    Also I don't know if the other down skills interrupt the channel because I am pounding on those. It may be that I don't know how to fall on the ground properly.

    3+4 on guardian can sometimes put me over if the dps is low enough.

    It's a channel channel. You can't do anything else while doing it. Also if you take damage it stops.

    Pretty much...

    The only class I can reliably rally as is Mesmer, since they have a decoy, plus great dps when downed. (As a condition build, once your staff is on cooldown for 4/5, you may as well be downed and lobbing mass confuse)

    Necromancers can often rally as well since their #1 downed skill is a channelled life steal which often out paces any damage a single enemy will do to you. More than one enemy will still brutally finish you though.

    I've also had a situation where I was downed on my ranger and called my pet bear over to revive me. The bear sat through two enemies bashing on it and another two bashing on me for a couple of minutes (I went to get a drink) after which I still wasn't defeated and was almost back to full.

    It feels like they've fixed this a bit. My 1 down-state attack feel slower.


    A bunch of the downstates (Necro, Ranger, Guardian and Mesmer for sure) are just about waiting for your 3 to get off cooldown and then it's ass-kicking time.

    Especially Mesmer. Holy fuck the Phantasmal Rogue is a fucking BEAST.
