Fencers, I have to say I understand now why you said to buy gathering tools with karma. :P (Although, I still haven't found a one-stop shop for that.)
I do think the waypoint fees are too high, especially when the monetary reward for doing events usually doesn't cover the cost of porting there. So, I also choose to walk everywhere. The only exception being Orr because it's such a pain to navigate.
Yeah, no, F that. :P Even post-nerf Orr I won't bother with, especially when they have annoying 'road blocks' like that one escort event in Straits where you have to destroy the gate. I think I managed to find a way around that once? Or how about getting knocked off that little bridge by a catapult in Malchor's Leap right when you're approaching the Cursed Shore portal? Rage. I also hate krait with a white hot passion, they are my least favorite creature in the game.
I'm not happy about it, but I save more sanity sucking up the price of porting. Besides, there's only one place to be in all of Orr anyway unless you're doing map completion.
I find Malchor's Leap to be the most interesting of the three Orr zones. Kind of a shame that it's the least populated.
I surprisingly agree. Unfortunately, I never see anyone out there other than farmers or people doing map completion and very few events are soloable, I've tried. Well, the only people I see in Straits are doing Balthazar. I can only assume the big meta event in Malchor's Leap just isn't really worth anyone bothering in comparison to events in the other two zones.
This looks good the guild rushes might (unexpectedly) be the best part, I'm thinking this would be a fun thing to also do when not transformed to a chicken or other animal just have your weapons stripped and chased by evil beasts and monsters with your only option being to run for dear life
