Yes, I will buy gear. No, I won't waste it on an asura :P
Kids these days...
In my time we had to kill a god, create a new one and bring the mats on the bags for a full primeval set!
OT: Dunno, still too soon for me to think about it.
"The world is filled with lies! Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not commit adultary. These are all lies, deceptions. I don't want to be killed. I don't want to be victim of theft. That is why they use lies like justice and moral to protect their weak selves. The original truth is the survival of the fittest. One must devour it all, wether it be other humans, wealth, power or the world itself! All hail Britannia!" - Charles vi Britannia
to answer your question yes i already have 4000 gems waiting for me and will be purchasing even more and get cosmetic stuff along with other quality of life things
hmm, you should've added Krytan armorset as I wanted to see that on an Asura
Well, that's what I get for skipping the last few stress tests. Was that the only piece added, or were there more?
And I probably will, eventually. If I ever get a bunch of extra cash laying around or something, I may buy a single set of armor to transmute over my current stuff.
In case you're wondering how asura look in the other armors:

I'm really big on aesthetics so if something goes on to that store that I think looks badass I will probably buy it.
Ideally, I felt like all the elite armors from GW1 should only be available to original GW1 players that earned them. Instead we get the river-dance shoes from pre-Searing... erm.
Overall, I am really unhappy with how Anet are handling their cash shop in GW2. And I say that as a whale more than willing to swallow up frivolous virtual trinkets. But implementation and effect is the opposite of awesome for me.
How do you make the aviator shades non-wearable in combat from GW1? My mind breaks.

I've got a question: If you buy the gear through the gemstore, do you only get 1 copy of it or do you get a set for each of your characters? Is it a 1 character use only thing?
I'll try to stay clear of the gem-store for the first few weeks until I figure out what I want and what's worth buying.
I think by purchasing cool stuff early on in the game you're ruining your play-experience because a lot of stuff will feel unrewarding.
It's like jumping into Diablo already wearing the best gear.
I won't buy anything at all for the first couple of months.
