    The wiki still says that some events scale up to 100. I actually thought they were talking about trying to make it scale even higher after launch.

    Got 5 crystals from a BLC shortly after the game was launched, never seen any since then... :/

    Transmutation Stones were known as Basic Transmutation Stones, while
    Transmutation Crystals were known as Fine Transmutation Stones.

    This was changed with the March update.

    Does anyone know of a EU server that has Grenth up? I would like to buy some boots there and our server seems to have stopped doing it after the new timers were released.

    I saw that but it unfortunately doesn't tell you when it's been taken. That said, a group on my realm took it down today so I was able to get the boots and save myself 5g in the process.

    I discovered this site on the state of the temples. Was trying to find uncontested Balthazar for the Hell that is Orr map completion (again). :P

    Anyone seen the "leaked" armor set and hairstyle?

    Edit: I was kind of hoping they'd add Kasmeer's face to character creation like they did Rox's horns.

    Thanks, this is brilliant. Just what the doctor ordered.

    Just ran into the buggiest content i have ever seen in any mmo ever. The Conscript the Dead Ships part of the personal story. It is laughable how bugged this is.

    Bug 1. Right at the start all 12 mobs spawn on the small dinghy you start on. As an Elly you last 1.2 seconds. After many deaths i was down to my pants with no gloves and hat. Forgot if you leave to repair you have to start from scratch. Same again but i took a repair canister this time.

    Cleared the second boat no problem.

    Bug 2. On the third boat wave after wave came before i had a chance to kill the one before. Like wave 1 ---> 4 seconds later ---->wave 2. So captain and 6 mobs to deal with and all my npcs dead. I got wiped out and restart at the check point. Oh look they all spawned on the small dinghy at the start. More death followed by kiting for ages. Another repair canister used.

    Bug 3. On the fourth boat my npcs just stand there like trees as i have to deal with risen hyleks who can some how spit poison at me from over 1200 yards. Pretty hard but i get to the last captain. Now the sucker punch..

    Bug 4. The fucking captain spawns with two guards who are green npcs. So i kill the captain but cant complete the quest as you have to clear the ship. Pretty hard to do when the two unattackable frog bastards are standing there.

    So all the time and hassle for a quest i cant complete. The best part is a quick check of the interwebz tells me most of the bugs have been here for over 5 months. That was how far back the complaints go back on the official forums over most of this shit. So now i am snookered. That was my only real goal in the game so far. To complete my personal story. So just an fyi for anyone nearing that point in the personal story. AVOID THE NAVAL OPTION WHEN IT COMES. You will be stuck for god knows how many months.
    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    Vaguely recall doing that & hated it, but then I`ve not liked any of the story at all. (Guild Wars story amazing, gw2 sucks the sphericals...)

    But, I did manage it.
    What weapons are you using, what traits etc?
    I paly tankyish & D/D & it works, just drags out the tediousness of it all for even longer ;p

    So I haven't played in a while, and I'm wondering do y'all mostly see random players at lvl 80 zones, or do you see a fair amount of people in the leveling areas? It just seems like the server I'm currently on, there aren't a whole lot of people around, even in say Lion's Arch.

    Just random 80s. When I see crowds of people it's usually for well farmed events or like the mystic forge/fractals areas of LA.

    Nature of the game, I suppose. GW2 is very "come & go as you please". Both in the sense of picking up/dropping the game whenever, but also in the sense that the world is set up to encourage wandering/run-by action.

    There is no real drive in the game- you just go wherever, whenever. To do, whatever.

    I am sure this is not a revelation of anything. Merely musing on the openness of GW2 in this regard and the seeming effect it has population density.

    1-20ish zones are fine anything above that just depends on what major event is on, orr is generally a dead zone on my server.

    My server is quite busy atleast... Ofc you tend to see less people on some mid maps. And if you logged in recently the chanses are that alot of people are on Southshun doing the new events / stuff.

    I have one free character slot to play with and am trying to decide whether to make a thief or an engineer. Problem is, I can't recall the last positive thing I've read about engineers. I rarely see them outside of the starting zones and I frequently see complaints about them being nerfed almost every patch. I'm willing to give engineer a shot if they have at least one good/effective spec that puts them on par with other classes.

    Thief, on the other hand, kind of looks OP. Am I right? As per usual, my play will consist predominantly of DEs/map completion/general PvE world activities.

    thiefs are really squishy to start of with

    engineers actually received some buffs, they are quite decent in my opinion
