    Squirrel; making an event of it sounds amusing, there might be some annoyance if you don't get one but on the plus side misery shared is good and it's generally more amusing to do things like this together.

    I shall re-download what I need tonight (hopefully just the last 1-2 patches) then maybe this weekend for losing all our money and/or dignity if you're still up for it :P

    Please let us listen in as the tension unfolds... Am sure we can get a crowd together too Perhaps a big string of toileting the random crap we have but don't use from the guild bank up to superiors... and/or upgrading the default siege equipment?

    It's a deal apricot. However I cannot say if I can make it this weekend, maybe Sunday night. I would need to put up loads of buy offers too. 3 cheap Exotics and a Mystic Forge Stone are the way to go, I would assume?

    Mystic forge stones are bad, they change the type to anything so you can put in say 3 swords and a stone and get a piece of armour out.

    I think assuming a 5-1 quality upgrade exotic items are a bit of a better sell atm assuming you can get them for around 1.25g

    and yes, the gamble is stupid, but watching the precursor prices keep rising and rising as fast as I can actually get money and knowing how low a priority the crafting of them is now I don't have a lot to lose as any part of me that was highly invested in the game has whittled away over the past few months so maybe I would stop playing after losing the cash but considering anet are doing little to help me have goals in the game that's happening anyways.

    Halloween preview:
    http://www.mmorpg.com/newsroom.cfm/r...ober-15th.html

    Considering the amount of recycled stuff there, it looks a little light. (The recycled stuff will be fun, but I thought the idea was that it would allow them to do additional stuff alongside festivals.) I guess there'll be more in the second-half-of-Halloween update.

    Wish I'd kept my spare candy corn.

    Buying extra character slots is something I would advise against at this point, the game has been steering into a pretty alt-unfriendly direction for some time now (soulbound stuff, ascended items, etc.) and you would be better off finding that one class you like the most and investing in a "main" character. This comes from someone who has played all classes to 80, several times with some classes, and loves trying out a lot of different classes and playstyles. Alts are a goldsink.

    Bag slots are not very cost efficient and there is not a whole lot of stuff you'd want to carry around with you anyway besides character specific gear sets (2 or 3 maybe?) and a bit of food and harvesting items. Same goes for bank tabs I suppose, although there is something to be said for having an additional 2 or 3 for convenience. Anything above that - get a couple of personal guilds and buy the 50 slot vault for a few gold.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that extra bank space doesn't mean a whole lot if it is only there to be eaten up by new inventory spam like XP scrolls or that diorama. Also, more bank space doesn't add to a) combat stats and b) playing experience / fun.

    Editedit: Come to think of it - legendaries don't do that either (adding fun that is), but still!

    I thought legendaries/ascended had jewel/sigil slot and an infusion slot - so therefore slightly better than an exotic?

    It is a bit weird - they seem to have spent quite a lot of effort on making it so that you can play any character you want and share the rewards across your account (shared bank, account wide achievements, most loot being unbound etc.) which is nice and alt friendly but if you want to gear up multiple max level characters it suddenly becomes hideously expensive and time consuming. I haven't levelled everything but I got 6 characters to level 80 with a couple deleted along the way and recently decided to only bother equipping the two I play the most and let the others languish, which feels like a shame.

    Anyway, thanks for the replies about GW1, I'll have a go at it once I've finished up my bigger goals in GW2. Speaking of which, I'll run out of time consuming stuff to do pretty soon which actually feels like a nice bit of a break rather than a lack of content. I'm such a casual these days.

    I only have 3 alts at 80 and I'm happy this way. Until they offer a new race/class I don't see myself investing in more alts. I will give ascended to my main alt who does fractals and the others we'll keep their boring exotic.

    Not true - if you put in 3 weapons and a stone you'll definitely get a weapon out. That's as far as it goes though. So you can put in 3 torches and get out dusk, or 3 greatswords and get a focus

    Ok my mistake, doesn't change things much though I guess if you're going for a particular thing (like I will be).

    I'm still scared to do it and would normally never consider anything so luck based but I dunno if I can be bothered just sitting around waiting for anet to implement something I want.
