    And you can get transmutation stones quite easily from completing areas. I got 3 for use on gear up to level 79 for completing the little bits in Rata Sum and another for completing daily rewards.

    We went through and previewed all the dungeon / racial armour over the weekend. I've already got sets picked out for 2 of my characters:

    Edit: annoyingly there was no way to preview two one-handed weapons, otherwise my Warrior would have a groovy looking axe from another set which I apparently forgot to take a picture of







    The greatest thing about the transmutation stones is it frees the designers up to be way more creative and adventurous in some of their armour designs, as it doesn't matter as much if 99% of people think a set is shit, they can just get the bonus and switch appearance.

    That being said I was fairly surprise by how generic a lot of the designs were.

    Yeh I love the transmutation stones. I rarely like the look of 'epic' or 'legendary' armour, most of the time it just looks far too ridiculous for my taste. Although that's probably because Blizzard's armour designers were God awful. Most of the time I liked the look of 'green' or 'blue' armour sets more but could never wear them because of the awful stats.

    One of the things I like most about the armour sets is the sheer range of appearance you can get, whether you want to go for the barely clothed sex object look or actually wear some proper armour it's possible on any character.

    After chatting with squirrel last night I was having a go designing a logo for the steam group. This is what I've come up with so far.

    Not overly happy with them but thought I'd throw them out for feedback

    Yeh the first one is really good. Maybe it would be better if Horace was 'reversed', coming in from the side and facing the dragon, if if you know what I mean.

    It would just be perfect if there was a bear guild emblem ingame.

    Good shout. Still not overly happy. But lacking inspiration so see what you make of this.

    Agreed. It did occur to me that technically there is what I think is supposed to be a bear print:



    We could use that I guess

    You give me way to much credit. We can thank John's mighty talents for horace, which I just re touched up, and whichever legend at Anet did the GW2 'two'

    Bear paw looks nice.
    Is that bear looking badger a guild symbol?

    Ideas:
    - keep the original style for the dragon-two (as in keep it red) and maybe play with the color for Horace so it fits better. Or colorize the two with something that fits better with brown.
    - tattoo the dragon-two on Horace directly

    That bear paw is not bad, but it lacks the oompf of the unicorn.

    vs

    Of these two, I feel like the first one is better ... the second one leaves a large black mass down the centre of the image which draws the eye in too much. Maybe if there was a different, lighter background behind Horace, but then things start to get a bit busy.

    Also, unicorn is better! It's more unique and distinct, and is more typical of a heraldic device.

    Could we get rid of the black? seems like it could be filled with the red.

    Have to say I prefer the bear paw, the unicorn is a bit Brony-ish

    How would it look if we exchanged the black with white? That would be a bit more in the direction of the official GW2 symbol. Might conflict with the Horace's lovely brown skin though.

    And is there something GW2 related that we could... attach to Horace? Like an Elementalist's headpiece for example.

    I was a bit bored, so I thought I would take a swing at an emblem, the idea was to make it look like the signet icons for the game.

    Hm, I'm not sure if black, red, white is a good colour combination for our guild flag. :P Apart from that, very good idea in my opinion. Maybe something more alike to this:

    Are you suggesting the green and gold for the colour palette?

    I was just keeping in colour theme with what has been posted previously, if anyone has any further suggestions I can easily make changes.

    There's a steam group? :O

    I did toy with the idea of a signet ring impression, but my efforts always ended up rubbish. Dammit if only I had a 3D printer, I could effectively create a horus head signet ring and take a real photo of it pressed into wax

    Well Red, White and Black kind of are the RPS colours (as well as the nazi party). I guess technically RPS colours are more Silver, Maroon and Black
