    I found it a dissapointing wipefest, if I have to join 100+ people on vent to down a boss then Ill give it a miss, as will the vast majority of players, I don't mind relying on a handful of people but thats just too many, which is why he is downed so little. I doubt we'll see a boss that requires quite the numbers of Tequatl but hopefully they can tune it to lesser numbers, because it actually looks okay.

    I haven't PvEd in the game before despite having it since launch, only sPvP for first 5 months then quit. I made a Charr last night but only managed to get to level 9 in about 4 and a half hours since I had no idea what to do and no events were popping up, I also tried a human followed a zerg for abit which was good exp but really wasn't fun, got level 12 after like an hour with them. So is this the norm in the game for levelling or what only the human zone seemed to have this zerg which spawned loads of events but the others were just dead, I only saw 2 others in the Charr zone.

    So any tips would be great.
    See I like GW2, I played it as much as other MMOs I liked WoW and Aion (yeah Aion). But to me the biggest issue in GW2 is something most people wouldn't expect, the lower levels are completely dead. My server ET is generally low population and I leveled an alt to about 42 and literally saw 6 people the whole way through. I guested to TC because I hate leveling alone at that was a high population server and from 42 to 48 I saw 3 people.

    Although I hate hate WoW questing, I prefer WoW questing than GW2 when playing solo. No events pop up and it isn't as fun as it was at launch. Here is why I think it is a problem for GW2. I know people that quit leveling because they hated it and found no one to level with. I was watching a person leveling in GW2 on Twitch and he quit because he said there was no one around. Seems like you aren't having that much fun either. (although all MMOs suck leveling) If people are not leveling and getting to max level the game will suffer because it won't bring in new players. And that sucks because the game offers so much for free.

    I really hope they do something, like merging low level zones only. This way when a new player comes into the game they get to play with others. And they fall in love with the game and all the events and activities it has. Leave level 70+ or level 80 maps as is, but do something with low level ones. These guys have the tech, they just have to do it.

    I feel like once people get more used to the fight and understand what needs to happen it won't be so necessary to be on voice chat. Right now some people know what to do and they sort of have to direct other people, but then you have all the people who don't really read forums and stuff and all of them are learning from scratch pretty much. Once everyone gets used to it he'll go down much more often.

    Weird, my GW2's client's audio engine partly crashed. Lost all ability and environmental sound effects, music and speech was fine though.

    Apparently there seems to be some issue with these ability and environmental sound effects getting disabled while playing the game since latest patch.

    Is there no Rabid light chest or feet available for karma?

    (Looking at this: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Equi...by_stats#Karma )

    They have fixed the tablet issues! I can finally use my drawing tablet to play with.
    I've been using my tablet pen for everything I do for the past 7 years, so a mouse feels weird to me. It felt wrong using a mouse xD So I'm very grateful that is fixed.
    (Before the problem was when trying to look around, it was spinning like mad. Now it works like a proper mouse).

    Can anyone tell me what this is?

    There is also this. This is clearly the thing that cloud is yelling about.


    Only I saw those, my friend didn't. We were on world 2 zone 2 doing bauble achi for my friend who failed it on out first run (he didn't have whip).

    It's a Tribulation-only check-point system. You take a balloon from the balloon pump, and give it to the cloud.

    You're not suppose to see them when not in Tribulation mode.

    Ok, thanks for information. No way that I would ever do tribulation mode.

    So, I've noticed that I'm vendoring more and more blues and greens due to TP price not being worth selling. Seems like the burst of those items having value due to salvaging Essences of Luck is dissipating.

    I never understood why anyone would go for (High)MF, it's such a huge carrot on a stick that it should be obvious.

    One of the cheaper ways will give 19k luck/9g that means
    050% = 7g
    100% = 58g
    150% = 235
    200% = 650g
    215% = 841
    In most cases, I understand the other side's viewpoint and how they came to it, but cannot tolerate their stubbornness to not see mine (the right one).

    I made a profit going from 0% to 101% right when the Luck patch dropped (Got bored after a while) so it's not that bad.

    Alright, despite reading the wiki, I'm still confused about Fractals. Let's say my goal is to get to level 10, do I need to run 1-9 consecutively or as long as someone else in the party is at 10 can I get into 10? If I can skip levels like that, then does my personal level increase any or do I still have to do them consecutively?

    The person that starts the fractal can set the level for any level they have completed +1.
    (I have completed 35, I can set 36, 19, 28, 2, etc. Cannot set 37 or higher)

    Other party members that complete the fractal will have their level increased +1 if it is above their current level.
    (I am level 5, I completed a 9, my new level is 6)
    (I am level 35, I completed a 14, my level does not change)

    Rewards are based on your current level even if you complete a higher level fractal.
    (I am level 5, I completed a 12, my reward is 6)


    One special thing to note is there is daily tier chest for completing an even numbered fractal dungeon for each tier.
    0-9
    10-19
    20-29
    30-39 etc.
