What to do with badges of honor,

#1Froggie48Posted 3/29/2013 8:57:06 AM
I don't feel like making my legendary, so they are of no use to me there. The Invader gear is ugly and inferior to my current gear. And I cant salvage the gear for stuff that I can sell. So do I just keep sticking them in the bank and let them gather dust?

You can get siege blueprints with them, too. If you're gaining them at such a large rate, you clearly have an interest in WvW, so this might be the best use of them for you.

The Invader gear is exotic. You cannot possibly get 'better' gear. You may not like it because it's not good for your build. But it's not crap gear.


However, you can use the badges to buy siege weapons and give that siege to one of the better commanders you run with. Which a lot of people do...

You can also save up 500 for your Gift of Jumping for your legendary. Need 500 for that.

I'm a ranger decked out in Valkyrie emblazoned armor. Which means switching to the invader armor gets me less power while giving me slightly more durability. I can already take hits decently well, so I have no reason to get anymore vitality/toughness. So it is inferior to my current gear, which is what I said.

I will definitely invest in siege equipment though as I do play WvW quite often.

I don't understand, aren't they soulbound? How can you give them to other players?

If you drop them, then anyone can pick them up.

you can now choose the type of exotic armor you want with BoH, zerker, valk, carrion etc.
about 200 + 1g max for an exotic piece which is pretty good.

Save them. With the way Anet is treating WvW as of late, it is likely they will continue to add more things you can buy with badges.
