He said he needed to grind his a$$ off, which to be fair, is an over-statement. And for a tormented weapon no less.
After all this time, most of us have finished Factions both sides with multiple characters in normal and hard mode too, vanquishing included. But him, he can't stand the amount of grind required to *unlock* the area.
Sorudo has a history of exaggerating grind. That's why it's starting to sound like whining.

i dont like faction farms either, am i a whiner now? he just said that he dont have the required faction, nothing more or less and he doesnt like to farm it
anyway, its a nice gift of anet, but would be a bit nicer if we could at least choose, i mean, they are customized already
ps. i'm NOT complaining, just saying it'd be nicer
Given that the weapons are customized, I don't see the harm in adding a collector for the Reverie Gift, similar to the collector for the Armbraces of Truth.

Yay easy to get Tormented weapon! Give me something to do still GW2 releases. Thanks Anet!
Opening the gift drops a Tormented weapon into the character's inventory; the type of weapon depends firstly on which profession is opening the gift, and then which Tormented weapons have not been dedicated to that account's Hall of Monuments already. If all Tormented weapons have been dedicated to an account's Hall of Monuments already, you will still receive a tormented weapon customized to your character.

As for getting 10k luxon points, it might be faster to vanquish a small luxon area like Mount Qinkai. If you have multiple characters, another option is to do a few of the fast/easy quests on a few of them to get to 10k. Don't forget that Luxon points work account wide.
It's hard to let "grind my *** off" go without comment. It was pretty nice of Anet to provide not only a nice remembrance of GW1 (thus promoting the original game which you specifically asked for, sorudo) and to make getting one of the hardest to get HOM weapons so easy to obtain. Complaining about this from a long time player seems like pretty bad form to me.

I looked at the easy Tormented weapons as a pretty significant devaluing process. I thought about it when I first heard about Tormented weapons as the reward from Reverie Gifts, and realized that the game has been out for many years. Paraphrasing what ArenaNet said about the festival hats, any enjoyment that people had about the exclusive Tormented weapons has long since passed. They've had their fun, and they had plenty of time to show off their nifty weapons (whether that came from running of DoA or simply wealth).
At this point I think the weapons could be devalued to the point of choosing your weapon, and you really wouldn't make much of an impact to the people who got their Tormented weapons the old fashioned way.
I should point out that I have no issue at all with the way the quests are currently set up. And I certainly don't want to make it sound like I'm complaining, because I'm very happy that ArenaNet took the time to do this for their playerbase. Just one little thing that I might tweak if I had executive control. (I also realize that they most likely have considered the "choose a weapon" approach and went with random for their own reasons)

Completed the quests and dragged my second account along. Few notes:
- Leaving another player at the map entrance is enough to get quest progress
- My other char had completed Prophecies, but no access to the Crystal Desert. Using the teleporter in Elona didn't work as a shortcut, had to unlock it from Prophecies
I got a tormented sword for my warrior with a sword-build, not sure if that was just lucky or the random factor is not all that random, either way I'm very happy. Haven't decided yet which character gets the tormented weapon on my main account, already have the HoM point and the frequently played chars have a tormented, destroyer or oppressor weapon already

Still waiting for sorudo to reply on all of this.
So, anyone willing to run all but the Nightfall quest for 70plat? :)
