Two weeks to craft an ascended item that is account bound. This does not include the time it takes to get from 400-500 either.

Overall this is a terrible idea IMO, and will become unbearable if agony makes its way out of fractals. I have a feeling it will, into dungeons...but that is just a guess.

Stop with the time-gated crap. Ectos were 27s yesterday and now shot up to 37s.

Yeah, they always seem to undo everything from patch to patch. Ectos were high, then they made world bosses drop weapons like candy, putting ecto into an affordable place. Now they use ectos for the MF stuff and they skyrocket, undoing the first thing.

This also messes up dust...as in it was super expensive because Orr is terrible, so they go and make it so ecto can be salvaged into dust. This equalizes the price, but now that ecto is higher, dust is going to go higher.

I do like how they coin the coming unpredictable market as 'exciting'. As exciting as implementing timers on individual mats I guess. Or rather, not exciting at all..just bad for everyone.

Anyone concerned about needing to buy transmutation stones for the ascended armors? How many ascended skins are we getting? If it's one per armor type, then I'm betting we're going to need cash shop transmutation stones to put the dungeon armor skins back onto these armors.

I have some fine transmutation stones saved up too, but once ascended armor hits that will be the death of my alts. There's only so much time I can invest into this game and the time gates are dumb.

ive been hearing a lot about this... that's BS... the different in stats wont be a huge dif. honestly, you could run around in rares or greens and still do the same in any PvE situations... only PVP would be different and its going to be a long long long time until people have full sets of ascended armor.. Don't give upon alts...as long as they have exotics your fine.

It's not so much the small stat boosts I'm worried about. It's the the once-a-day per account thought process that pisses me off. It already takes months to outfit just one character with full ascended trinkets.

seriously, I really wish this game would reward you for having alts instead of punishing you for it.
