WoW gearing on a new raid tier: grind daily dungeons to Valor Cap (1000/week) until you have enough points to purchase gear (most expensive pieces being 2200VP) after you're locked out of your raid until the following Tuesday. Maybe get one piece a week depending on random drops+rolls

GW2 gearing forever: complete DEs for Karma. No karma or DE cap. Just do it all day. Get gear as often as you want.

WoW players: "Just another day at the office"

GW2 players: "SO MUCH GRIND OMG"

I remember being very late to 4.2 in WoW and grinding out dailies in TB and Molten Front for a month to get welfare vendor epics to boost my ilvl enough just to be able to do FL.

Gearing is and always will be pretty casual in GW. Cosmetics is where the grind lies.

Soloing UW for ectos to buy Obby back in the day? Or running people for pittances (500g/head) to buy your 15k sets (75k+mats)?

That's some vanilla GW nostalgia right thurr.


i chest runned in GW1 to make my money (found lots of perfect stat items like some axe, i forgot what the name of it was but worth alot)

also sold a ton of the bow from the forest dungeon, and lots of the weapons from the Deep

had maxed out gold (wasnt it called platinum in GW1?) on all my characters

Thats actually cheap compared to the gold prices..

I would rather pay 45k karma than 20+ gold pieces.

I farmed over 10 million LB points across all characters speed clearing DoA multiple times daily for a period of a couple years before giving away ~4500-5000 ectos to my friends/guild mates, myself. Nobody can tell me what a grind GW is because it's just not. Max gear is cheap in GW. Cosmetics are not. But basically my point was that GW so casually hands you the best of everything with little effort unless you want to look pretty, and people complain about "the grinding," when WoW is so much more suspect to that argument, and it's still not even that bad.

Just cute to me.

1k karma in under a minute? Events only give ~300 karma per, so if you're doing 3 in a minute then no wonder you got banned.


Karma booster + karma food + escort that girl who does gorilla research, then kill the giant gorilla. 440 + 440 karma in about 80 seconds depending on when you join in.


So when you said "1k karma in under a minute" you actually meant 880 karma in more than a minute? So both parts of your statement were wrong?

Two Questions: What is this karma food and is it craftable? Thanks.

I think the Karma price is too high. It should be more like 21 karma...

The "Road to Ruins" in Malchor's leap to fight Lyssa. There's 3 seals of events you need to do to get to Lyssa, 360 per event. Although if you fail to kill Lyssa, you can recycle the seals event and repeat. I'v made about 15k karma with karma boost in about 3hours.

lol that's not gonna happen. This is an MMO.

All MMOs have to have some sort of grind at some point or it will die quickly.

The karma cost is high because you're not expected to get full matching exotics right off the bat. When you get to 80, you get some pieces with karma, you get some pieces from giving materials to your buddy crafter, you get some pieces with WvW badges, you get some pieces from completing maps or getting lucky in drop, you get some pieces from the trading post...

Then your character looks really silly, so you either take the shortcut route and use transmutation stones, or you start the "endgame" of this game, which is all about making your character look as cool as possible, or at least, match. That part you won't do in an afternoon, since its the whole point of the game :)
