    Well, in the case of the jungle wyrm it is by far the weakest of all the farmed world bosses I've encountered. It is often dead within 2 seconds of not even having fully spawned yet. Not even the Svanir shaman goes down that fast. Conversely, the Golem boss in Mount Maelstrom is a long fight compared to most of the other bosses and without having any periods of time where you can't attack, like SB for example. I have actually logged off at the beginning of the golem fight, logged into an alt to do another world boss, and logged back to the golem not even at 50% yet. I don't know what makes it so different, but jungle wyrm could definitely use an infusion of its sturdiness.

    Jungle Wurm is terrible yeah. What I do is, the moment he comes out of the ground just start spamming 1. Doesn't matter if you don't see his HP in your screen - just spam 1

    Does anyone here have Volcanus, the greatsword? I'm trying to farm the lodestones for it but after like 30 runs in CoF and ages with destroyer slaying, i haven't found a single one yet. Any ideas?

    Do you run in max Magic Find gear? That's the only reason why I think you'd not have any so far. You could try wasting all your unused karma on Lost Orrian Jewelry Boxes but that has an extremely low chance of dropping charged loadstones as well. The GW2 wiki has some info on who drops them.

    My bad, forgot to say that i'm running for molten and destroyer lodestones and im running with 80% magic find, lodestones drop from chests in CoF and magic find doesn't affect chests so yeah...

    Why DO people farm them?
    Belief can become reality!

    Because they don't know better or don't like doing dungeons/events.

    I'm giving up on farming them, i'd rather farm gold and karma, buy thousands of orrian jewerly boxes and hope for the best, i got 1 molten lodestone out of 17 jewelry boxes yesterday so yeah, i'll just have to grind karma.

    What salvage kits do you guys and gals use for rares? I normally sell my rares on the TP but have decided to start salvaging them for ectos.

  13. #31353
    The cheapest ones that come in stacks of 25.

    Black Lion's aren't worth it for rares - someone did something like 800 rares recently with both kits and it worked out to like .15 more ectos with the BL kit so it's not worth the gold cost.

    I use the Master kits for rares and use the BL kits I get from dailies on exotics with a decent rune. Buy the exotic at .85 of the rune selling price, strip & sell the rune -free ectos- no biggie if RNG skips one.
    Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all.

    I use the mystic salvage kit, pretty decent if u ask me.

    eh I'm bored so I'm making random builds

    Theif weakness build:

    http://intothemists.com/calc/?build=...RX6;2KJW7XoHAg

    Gear is power precision gear with a mix of healing power till acceptable levels and toughness

    Eat rare veggie pizza for +40% condition duration with that plus sigil of weakness plus trait line you should get 90% condition duration which means weakness will work on bosses (it cuts the duration in half on bosses or something)

    Offhand pistol for blind when venoms are down also since it's main hand dagger your leap finisher will put you in stealth with black powder. Shortbow is foe aoe - put a poison patch down to inflict weakness then spam cluster bomb for damage and blast finisher will produce more weakness.

    It might be better to do d/d because blind making weakness redundant thus gaining cloak and dagger though I'm not sure why cloak and dagger could be better and heartblossom will never be used since you have shortbow.

    Is there any way to tell what server you're guesting on? Everything I've thought to try either only shows what servers others (guild/friends) are on or doesn't say anything at all (char/social pane).
