    So all level 80 gear have the same amount of stats? I know there is armor sets for diff playstyles like conditional dmg armor and such.

    So T3 cultural are equal with the Vigial order armor?
    is exotic armor bettet then rare stats wise or is it just cosmetic?

    Thanks!

    all level 80 armor of the same rarity has equal amount of stats.

    it goes from Junk -> Basic -> Fine -> Masterwork -> Rare -> Exotic

    Exotic is the top level of gear at the moment (there will be another level of gear called Ascended but the armor and weapons haven't been put in yet). So every level 80 exotic piece of armor will have the same amount of stats, just that they will have different allocations like condition damage, power, precision, etcetera.

    I wonder if they're going to do anything for Valentine's Day. I checked the GW1 wiki and it didn't look like they had an event for it.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    I'm planing to buy the vigial order armor when i ding 80 and then farm dungeons for the twilight arbor armor. Is this possible or have i missed something?

    Unless you're doing it for the looks, I'd suggest buying the rare crafted gear from the Trading Post instead. It'll generally be cheaper, and you have more choice on the stat distribution that you want.

    No problem lol! I did the same mistake, but I actually like the look of the vigil armor I did buy, so it was still worth it for me.

    There was only weekend/week mini events leading up to Cantha Fest in June/July in GW1.

    There was no Valentine's Day in Guild Wars 1. April Fool's Day and Talk Like A Pirate day were also mini holiday events. Easter week was a thing though- you got candy and stuff.

    Candy in GW1 = buffs.

  12. #30732
    They have the Cantha New Year at the end of this month. I very much doubt that will be in GW2 though.

  13. #30733
    Valentine's is not really a big holiday or anything (at least in my opinion) . I expect them to do something regarding Easter though, as that is as big as Christmas is. We can only wait and see

  14. #30734
    It's not a big holiday, but there's a lot of fluff you can add for it. In fact, as I recall WoW had a much bigger 'to do' with the annual V-Day event than they did for Easter (Noblegarden) for years.

    Mostly I just keep wondering when to use my BL keys. :P I read somewhere that the permanent recustomization kits were either 1) only during Wintersday or 2) had their drop chances doubled during Wintersday. So, not sure if I should bother using them when there's not some kind of event happening since most of the stuff that comes out of them is meh.

    Enjoy it. I know I did.

    Is anybody else's TP interface bugged? Mine was fine up until a day or two ago, now it's barely legible and it looks like whatever scripts it usually uses just aren't loading.

    I noticed the other day if I changed the UI size to small through the options menu that the TP text got clipped and smooshed. Returning the UI size to normal solved it.

    I tried changing the size of the UI as well as the resolution (something someone on the official forums suggested) and I'm still getting this:

    Should i go Berseker's armor or Knight's armor for my GS warrior? Is Berskerker's a little bit too glass canon?

    That definitely looks like a resolution issue, Lane.

    Are you playing in Windowed mode by chance? Does the resolution in game match the resolution for Windows?
