Awesome thanks! That wouldn't throw it out of balance stat wise, actually.

Also, stuck on a loading bar that stopped updating! sad

I read huge parts of it, it basically sums down to the following:

Anet -> We arent sorry about adding Ascended gear, BUT we should have done it differently, we so sowwy!

Tbh the guys answering questions are making a pretty decent impression, they seem sincere about the fact that they screwed up and in hindsight they should have rolled out ascended gear differently.

Re: Latest info about GW2

I did read some parts of it and some things are just blunt lies, so I stopped reading.

Anyhow:

Wintersday was always my favorite holiday in GW1, lets hope this one is going to be just as good.

Re: Latest info about GW2

January 28

The sky falls and the ground shakes in the lands of the north. Charr and norn refugees crawl from the wreckage of their homes in the Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau, struggling to find shelter in the south. The call goes out for volunteers to assist the victims in this time of need, when earth and sky seem to have become the enemy…

Flame and Frost: Prelude is the prologue to a multi-stage narrative that will bring big changes to Guild Wars 2 in the months to come.
New Features
Temple of the Silent Storm Week

From January 28—February 4 the regular eight-team/three-round paid tournaments will be replaced by two-team/single-round paid tournaments in the Temple of the Silent Storm map. After the week is over, we’ll add Temple of the Silent Storm to the regular rotation of both free and paid tournaments.
Improved Achievement System

We’re adding a new rotation of daily achievements to add variety and encourage you to explore the open world. You’ll get different achievements every day of the week and a new achievement tracker in the UI to make it easier to track your progress.
New Achievement Laurels

You’ll earn these brand-new laurels as a reward for daily and monthly achievements!

Redeem these laurels for rewards like the new Ascended gear and Infusions!
Guesting

With the new guesting system, you can play with friends on other worlds in the same region (North America, Europe) without changing your homeworld. Guesting is free, but going forward there will be a gem fee for transferring home worlds, so make sure you’re on the home world you want to permanently play on before 28 January!
New Utility Infusions and Ascended Amulets

We’re adding a wide range of new gear that can be purchased with the new laurels.

With 5 new Utility Infusions and 30 Ascended Amulets to choose from, there’s something for every style of player.
More Upgrades and Improvements

We’re making a ton of other improvements to the game this month, such as enhanced performance in WvW, tweaks to the dynamic level adjustment system, and UI improvements, which will be detailed in our release notes.
New Items in the Gem Store

It’s a new year, which means all-new items and a redesigned favorite in the Gem Store!

From Baby Quaggan Backpacks to Riding Brooms to the revamped Box o’ Fun, you’ll find it all in the Gem Store!

Re: Latest info about GW2

It seems to be a larger patch, roughly 6000 files. Well, obviously the patch servers are very slow in delivering the files at the moment – between 0 and 100 KB/sec download rate.

Re: Latest info about GW2

Wils, Because you're worth it wink:

Weapons now continue to grant bonus stats while bundles are equipped.

Bundles from player skills (engineer kits, elementalist conjured weapons, warrior banners) now have base damage that is consistent with the highest rarity weapons available at the level of the player.

Highest rarity... does that mean free ascended/legendary stats for engineers bundles when that comes? Most awesome!

Re: Latest info about GW2

Ascended stuff i found:

Amulets 30 Lurels each
Rings 35 Laurels each

Comes in whatever specifikations you would want it seems, seems like reasonable prices, even tho it will take 3 months to get them atleast

I'm not really happy about this:

Dungeons
Polished dungeons and removed the ability to use waypoints while any player is in combat.

That be very odd.

How hard is it get those ascended trinkets then? 1.000 Laurel? 10.000? wink

And the dailies, the only source of Luarel? Do you really have to craft for the daily?

Yes so far i think dailies/monthlies is the only source, and you do need to do crafting sometimes, but as I understand it, the dailies will change each day.

Trinkets are more than reasonably priced i think, and theres a huge selection of stats.

Re: Latest info about GW2

[rant]
I'm not happy with this. The only reason I kept doing dailies was because it came as a side effect while playing w3. Now it its something you have to do if you want to stay competitive. Why people enjoy games where they get told what to do? I don't understand. I just want to play to have a good time.
[/rant]

Of course everything is account bound? Do you get Laurel for PvP daily too?

A new, unique miniature: Chauncey von Snuffles III, who placed second in the Divinity’s Reach Fanciest Cat competition

This made me smile smile

It's nice to have some changes to the dailies, although don't think I'll be able to muster up enough laurels for anything useful.

Re: Latest info about GW2

I guess the WP limitation on dungeons will make it difficult, then again it gives more meaning to revive and not just teleport and run back as soon as you're down.
