    That's really nice to hear.

    To be honest, I'm not very interested in the back pack, but I definitely prefer to be able to buy things directly than with some horrid chest with low odds.

    Think one of the things some people are missing is that this is a prelude.

    It'll be introducing a few new things but I have a feeling "bigger" content won't be featuring until the full blown Flame and Frost event kicks in.

    Exactly like how Halloween and the Karka events were started. At least, that's how I hope it'll work. Small changes, where you wonder: was that here before?

    I hope they are able to implement as much infrastructure propping up as they can before rolling out the new content in all its glory.

    I hope they will learn that they simply can't go for more than a week between server resets given the current quality (or lack thereof) of the code. By the time a week passes, many events have ground to a halt. By the time two weeks have passed (about where we are now), every zone is filled with stalled events. Yet we'll have to endure nearly another week of this, during which time I expect even more events to bug out. Why are they letting their game degenerate into a state where it becomes darned-near unplayable? Why are we, as players, forced to resort to trying arcane workarounds to get things moving again?

    Well, this is just the intro. From what we've heard so far, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of storyline happening. If it rolls out similar to Wintersday, it'll be fine. Or maybe if they introduce a few new quests every day or something.

    But I still don't want it to be over too quick.

    Considering my alternative to this bugged events problem is WoW, where foes just stand there and do nothing... I'd say it's not that bad.

    Agreed they need to fix it regardless, but I mean, most events do work as intended... the ones that bug out though are pretty noticeable, but the game is very playable.

    For those still wondering about the whole ascended with laureals CEASAR STYLE BRAH BRAH you will be able to trade laureals for ascended rings and amulets. Backpacks will be enabled in a future update. These ascended items will not have an in-built agony resistance but they can be infused.

    Which makes sense because the in-built agony resistance is only usefull when doing high-level fractals, at which point you already got yourself an infused ascended drop from fractals anyway.

    I don't really want to break your immersion, but I believe I've seen you mention this a few times.

    The problem is that many (many) creatures do just stand around waiting for you to come along and kill them.

    I can go to Metrica Province, and find one area where there are siamoths standing by the water. What are they doing? Waiting for someone to attack. Or the mosquitoes down the way, that might move back and forth but are always there. Or the veteran troll near those mosquitoes, the one that stands by the fire all the time.

    Or you could go to Orr, and see all the Risen that just hang out, drooling on their toes until someone's unlucky enough to get close to them.

    I'm happy that GW2 has a lot of actual activity. Some things fight other things (Risen and boars/grubs in Straits of Devastation, for instance). Some things have patrol routes. Some things go kill cute little innocent critters. NPCs have paths and they may not be in the same spot all the time.

    But overall, a whole lot of things are just hanging out, waiting for you to kill them.


    What does this have to do with Flame and Frost? Well, it's-- look over there, a cup of wild coffee! Quick, after it!
