    More like, stock up on transmutation stones since there will be hardly any ascended skins.

    Glad we're getting the legendary upgrades though, and the return of SAB should be fun.

    thankfully I got my legendary before the price went up

    so stat bonus, infusion slot and a sigil slot, when are they rolloing out Ascended sigils?

    I see they are staggering the release of Ascended equipment to [create a more effective gold sink] help people focus on what's needed first.

    But we still don't know what is happening to all those named exotics, surely they should get a stat boost too, or at least the option to ascend them.

    still, might make my quest for the Wings of Dwayna somewhat cheaper.

    Squirrel/Kinch : It's less needing help in the instance, though that will of course be welcome, and more being able to open it without grinding the prerequisites first, before the gods of time gated content cast me into the Abyss. Seem to have secured wifi access now that doesn't involve me lurking somewhat dodgilly in the supermarket, so will be able to read up on new patch before it goes live. 3 more days on the beach, see you Sunday.

    Hey, enjoy the sun! As I've mentioned, I am available for grouping shenanigans and can also open up the instance.

    Concerning the new gold sink: I'll wait and see how expensive the new crafting tier and the ascended items are before deciding on a reaction. For people pursuing a Legendary weapon there is literally no reason any more to buy existing Precursors anymore. Prices have risen even more and crafted Precursors as well as new Legendaries are around the corner. But of course people aren't sensible.

    Will do the final push on the legendary next month. Have the T6 mats gone up in price much? Hopefully the icy runestones are still 1g I left them till last as they were most inflation proof!

    I'll never get a legendary at this rate ^^

    But ascended weapons dissapoint me somewhat, the content isn't there that needs them and we're still lacking new dungeons/fractals/map zones/pvp modes, etc. that actually constitute things to do other than more grind.

    You get it for every character that turns 1 year, even if the message says "account activation". Don't know if this is a bug, but it was the way they handled it in GW1. And yes, nobody has a use for (more than one) Mini Queen Jennah and the experience scrolls are pretty pointless for most people.

    Looks like I might lose out on the fashion contest by a single vote!

    It'd be much appreciated if just one person hopped on over there and posted a nice comment in my favour!

    Many thanks!

    What I mean is that I got the present twice in each of my alt, one yesterday and one today, same message, same content. And yes they could have randomised the minis at least!

    Looks like they were re-sending them because of a bug.

    Re ascended weapons and their exotic counterparts. If I were designing this system, I'd add -- in addition to ascended weapons themselves -- some method to "ascend" an existing weapon. This could easily be tied into the new crafting system -- a "gift of weapon ascension" that requires a certain discipline -- and could therefore be time-gated as much as they like. If they don't do something like this, then we're going to be left with hundreds of great skins that will only be best-in-slot if one is willing to spend a transmutation crystal. Of course, that may be part of their plan to drive more gem store sales...

    I'll be back in-game tonight, so see you soon

    I guess it depends how fast or difficult it is to get ascended gear. If its account time gated, and takes a month, then you may well earn transmutation crystals as fast through daily bonuses etc. if its substantially faster then you may need to put up with naff skins or purchase crystals which would be a shame.

    Weren't we all supposed to get 200 gems? Or was that for the character birthdays?

    I haven't had any presents despite playing since pre-launch. ArenaNet forgot my birthday, it seems.

    The birthday stuff seems char bound instead of account, so make sure you're on a character created a year ago.

    Beyond that there were some reports of not getting presents but I thought that'd been fixed now.

    For the fashion contest: HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE thanks for the additional votes folks!

    GameSkinny said that the winner is due to be announced today, but they didn't say when or when voting was supposed to close, so I hope the push at the end was enough to win!

    For the birthday thing: Still haven't gotten a gift but I forgot when I created Seigous lol! Well it's not a big deal anyway given what all you guys got...

    Got birthday gifts on both of my oldest characters today. They were created about a week apart, so I guess the system is a little bit wonky. Not much use for the experience scrolls now that I have 7 characters above lvl 20 and no spare slots, but hey, free stuff!
