    New Mystical Dragon finisher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLajA90_C3k
    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.

    hmmm, that finisher + ancestral outfit + the new ship in labyrinthine cliffs = Cantha soon?

    Finisher is really cool. I think it might be even the best one!

    They also added a licence allowing players to have 3 crafting skills at the same time! I'd rather have changed crafting mechanics before but well...

  4. #34924
    Sadly it's just 3 ^^; A bit expensive for that.

    I ended up buying a license. For some reasons the gold/gem rate took a massive dip last night, so I got some (relatively) cheap gems with my gold. I have Huntsman, Leatherworker and Weaponsmith all to 500 on my main, so it is a nice convenience item.

    Yeah... I saw that some precursors dipped in price, the precursor supply went up quite abit.

    Personally I don't think the 3rd license is worth it at all. I have all of the crafting at 400 or better spread around my characters so the third license on one just wouldn't make sense.

    Sort of random comment, but Warriors are too easily powerful in this game. I just got my war to 80 two days ago and it's just so much easier and more powerful than all 6 other classes I've played at 80. It is far too easy mode. The default advantages of high damage, high health and high armor are a bad balance combo. I don't worry about high skill checks being powerful, but War is just plain frickin easy an awesome-mode. In PVE, you have some of the highest DPS in game while maintaining good HP and armor. In WvWvW, I can pretty much ignore all the offensive traits to become an unstoppable Juggernaut and still push out high damage. My Guardian requires far more active play than this for far less damage.

    Meh, staff ele is also incredibly strong and comes down to pushing 2. Guardian is just a spam skills fest and then run away while you have 15 blocks and an immunity.

    I still agree that for a melee toon it's the class with the lowest skill step in point though, but that still doesn't stop people from playing the prof absolutely terribly.
    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 just find warriors incredibly boring, no doubt that they are strong though

    In PvE the only class I actually like to play is ranger since not being allowed to dodge is fun and you can do a lot for the team.

    It's cause whats his name mains warriors

    Though I never touch my mesmer anymore in PvE. The whole purpose of this class is 100% negated in PvE (interrupts and deception). I mean the new recent traits don't have any value in PvE except for maybe Bountiful disillusionment but it's not that great.

    I guess I'll try ranger but I hate pets.

    I think everyone hates pets. They don't scale with you, they hardly listen (it's a lot better now though) and if your team doesn't stack it's useless.

    Mesmers were marginal in GW1 PVE too. Anet even made an April fools joke out of the Mesmer's unwanted presence in pve groups.

    Fundamentally, Mesmers are made for PvP. The class does not "work" fully in any other context. GW1 PvP was centered around the titanic struggle between a Mesmer and Monk. All other classes were effectively enabled by the Mesmer/ Monk dichotomy.

    It was pretty glorious. I really enjoyed GW1 PvP, GW2 not one bit.

    Though I do like my GW2 Mesmer in PVE. He's a Charr in a pinstripe purple suit. Very dapper. I play it as melee. Lots of fun.

    I feel staff Ele requires more skill on my part than War does, especially considering WvW play. You're still a low health pool with low base armor.

    War just doesn't have many trade-offs for its advantages. Until they put in all those condy cleanse traits, condies were a general counter to Wars. Now they can shed condies like crazy, so I am not sure what I really have to worry about when I play War.

    Imo all wvw fights are pretty meaningless. I have a thief that uses healing gear in wvw for shitz and giggles. I just can't take that game mode seriously.

    Is it really a lot better now? I have been playing my necro a lot more lately but it still feels like there is a 5 second delay between when I tell my pet to roar and when he actually does it. Though I will say doing the Queen's gauntlet on my Ranger is much easier than my Necro, though that might just be because my Ranger has MUCH better gear.
