Sorry I haven’t posted on this blog for a while. I went hiking over the weekend and the idea of writing really got away from me. I’m really pushed for time at the moment, hence the lack of original content from me.
Despite this, I am currently organising another of my huge PvE events. I’m sure a lot of people are smitten with defending Lion’s Arch at the moment, but there’s something coming up at the beginning of March which may distract you from Kryta.
As a side note, I had a very vivid nightmare last night about Scarlet drilling down beneath the city and the earth cracking open to reveal the eye of a dragon. Should that actually happen, I will consider myself a fortune teller.
If you would like slightly (!) more updates from me, you can always check out my Twitter.
"The Zodiac armor would make a good ‘avatar of Dwayna’ look," said my friend.
Five minutes later, $20 dissolved from my wallet.
That seriously looks like an avatar of a god. I haven’t seen any statues of Dwayna in a long time but hot damn, good job!
Aurora Glade everyone xD
There’s a guy on our server called Jadexi who flips the trading post and often does random community activities and gives away gold to random people, he hangs around in LA a lot, so he’s known by most people on our server.
So the AG community teamspeak decided they were going to have some fun and escort him out of the map before LA becomes under siege, with a ton of quaggan commanders xD Basically you just saw a massive swarm of commanders moving across the map and then a teeny army of quaggans with dorito’s above their heads run by, with an Asura behind them holding a SAB juke box. I am laughing so hard right now xD
This is absurd. I am really getting to the stage where I reblog everything using a quaggan tonic. For some reason I really like the aesthetic of a little quaggan body paired with the commander tag. Matches well.
Goodbye Mystic Forge
Goodbye Trading Post
Goodbye people that always stand in front of the bank.
Goodbye weekly guild suicide jump off the bank that scares the people that always stand in front of the bank.
Goodbye fishy bed
Goodbye cave pirates
Goodbye Lion’s Arch.
Hello darkness my old friend.
This wins some sort of award for being the greatest ‘Goodbye Lion’s Arch!’ post. I really love how a lot of people have taken some amazing pictures of the city, but context is everything - even if it’s just reminiscing about group suicides.
Yes another day, another video post!
This is a video introducing the impact of inflation on the Guild Wars 2 economy. It is important to note that this video is complemented by an awesomely-designed website here. The website includes interactive charts and smart little caveats like…

I gave up and traded all of my 52ish laurels for T6 mats to sell for gold (I made like 50ish g). I haven’t been able to get on any train - world boss, Frostgorge, or even Queensdale - that didn’t absolutely suck lately (I assume at least partially due to the DDoS attacks and lag) so this felt like the only way. It sucks to start over *again* on my cat tonic, but omg the Box of Chocolates is so worth it!!! Since its not a Toy she can even keep her bouquet…which only makes me want to buy another one. xD
After having it for half an hour or less, I converted more gold to buy another. I can’t have just one, its too much fun.
Yeah I don’t generally use trains for farming, especially as nowadays they are run sporadically outside of the main PvE servers. I suppose people are either prevented from playing properly as you say, or they are distracted by the new world bosses.
Personally, I’ve found that there’s a small fortune to be made running in a decent WvW zerg in Eternal Battlegrounds on a Saturday night. Seriously, it makes gearing up an 80 elementalist totally worth it.
