why is guild wars 2 adding the gear treadmill?

If they're adding new, harder content, that content SHOULD come with an upgrade. It would be insane if there wasnt an upgrade.

And if they did THAT, you people would be complaining about how Anet's too lazy to make new armors! There's now winning with you.

Can't tell if you're intentionally misreading what people are actually saying, or if you really don't have a clue.

LOLSAUCE at these poor scrubs, "OMG treadmill, this game is bad now, and anyone who says otherwise is a drone or fan-boy."

Please, do us a favor and go fall down a well.

For those of you trying to use the gaming definition of "treadmill" please for the love of gaming realize what you are saying. Do you need to run the same instances over and over to get better and better gear just to do the next highest set of dungeons?

No

Well fancy that....its not a gear treadmill.

Doubt you're going to run it as a fresh 80.

So that makes it a treadmill

He's saying that instead of creating a new gear set, they should have upgraded the old ones, right?

Exotic armor shouldn't be the end all be all.

It makes sense they are adding a new tier of armor as this will open the door for legendary armor as well for crafters.


Does it make sense that they add a new tier of armor a mere two and a half months after release?

I would run it as a fresh 80, and it wouldn't be hard, people act like its actually tough to dodge an enemy or two and understand mechanics.

and besides fresh at 80 i had mostly rares with an exotic piece or two from map completion, dunno how you play, but really not that much of an improvement to EXO from rare, and i was just dandy in TA and Arah.

IF you consider it a gear treadmill, only means you need that crutch of barely better gear to actually make it through, that or those are the prerequisites for you to be carried through a dungeon.

Came in here to post about how ascended armor is gonna become a gear treadmill...i don't even think they are considering the fundamental changes this game needs to be more fun and engaging. They just keep heaping on filler.

Basically them folding and admitting their current game idea fails.
