Announcement weekend fun 8th - 10th Sept

This weekend will provide you with two ways to double your fun: First of all, you will find that the drop rate for all experience scrolls is doubled. In addition, all XP scrolls—new and previously-acquired—will have double the duration time during the weekend event. The fun starts at Noon PDT on Friday and runs through 11:59 PDT on Sunday night.

Horray Power Leveling weekend!

Do we also get half price drok runs?

(Note, most worthless event yet)

Okay. I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I thought it was just me who thought that experience scrolls are pretty much worthless. I never really understood why they were put into the game.

I think Anet is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for event ideas now just to try and keep people around until Nightfall. I would have prefered an event where your pants randomly change colors over this. >_>'

Rubbish, I've never used a scroll there worthless, maybe if they jumped to a level every kill it would be, but otherwise worthless.

ya, that's pretty silly.

the ONLY time i've ever used scrolls is when power-leveling a friend.

edit: I think that a 'double wood planks' event would be better than this.

I think that ANet's creative well has ran dry here...

Ok mods, this one needs merging with the other ongoing thread about this weekends event.

Scrolls = sell for money

Is this another Factions only event?
I'm still a long way from completing Prophecies. Looks like I'm gonna skip Factions if all the events are only for the latest version.

Yeah, all my characters are level 20. This is pointless to me.

Only people who have any true use of this is people going for the survivor titles

Actually, I'm pretty low on skill points for some chars, so I can see a use... I'd say we can't really complain: at least we are getting events on a regular basis...

You get more than enough skill points completing the game anyway, unless of course you want to deck out one toon with every skill/elite in the entire game from every class, which is not really advisable anyway, considering that would cost 434,000g just for the core classes add another 175,000g give or take for the faction classes.

If you want to PvP it's cheaper to just use faction to unlock skills, by far.

As for power leveling "WHY?", I got to level 20 in factions in under 12 hours, just grinding the normal game away, and using henchies.

And for that matter why do you need to be power leveled to 20 anyway, do some people think this some how makes them an urber god or something? if you can't play the game and kill stuff at level 10, in noob island your pretty sad.
