WvWvW

I have been slowly chipping away at my legendary, and this week I worked towards completing the World vs World vs World portion – gift of battle. My server cluster isn’t that great at WvW so it was a lot of getting steamrolled by others, but I actually enjoy PvP so it wasn’t THAT painful. Each day I would just work towards the next rank in the track, and before I knew it, done. I went from rank 1 to rank 11, and got a handful of other goodies too.

I wish that the warclaw mount wasn’t tied to a track because you can only work on one at a time, but the mount also requires some other stuff, so it would have been nice to have been able to complete it. As it is, now I’ve switched tracks to the mount and I doubt I’ll be getting it any time soon because the desire to go back to WvW is not as urgent as it was while I was working on my legendary.

Ah well, it was a nice break from PvE in any case, and I’m very glad to have gotten it done.

Legendary Progress

Turns out I need some PvP-esc stuff for my legendary, so that’s what I’m working on lately. I’m hoping to get a little bit done each day so it doesn’t feel like quite as long (and painful) a slog. Our teams tend to just get rolled right over and I’ve been contemplating a WvW guild for my 5th one…

All the Jumping Puzzles

Jumping puzzles are my bane. There are so many of them! The good thing is they’re worth 10AP each, so if you go after the ones that are easier to complete, you can get a nice chunk.

For the daily it becomes a bit easier depending on which jumping puzzle you need to do. There is typically always a mesmer nearby willing to port you up to the finish line. I admit now, I have done that a time or two (or three) before. Jumping puzzles and me simply don’t get along.

More Events

The latest event has us back to killing world bosses. Kill a boss, mine a node, get a little item that sells on the black lion market for around 4 gold (at this time, I expect it will drop) and an essence you can use to make some shiny weapon skins.

The weapon skins are for the new raid zone that was just released. It’s an opportunity for those who don’t raid to get some new pretties – and I think that’s a neat idea. I have collected a handful of the essences now, but I am not sure what else I need to get the shiny skins, so I’ll need to look into that as the event progresses.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

A New Event

ArenaNet has been on top of their game lately with all of the events taking place. I can’t wait until the 7th anniversary which is quickly approaching. Not only will my characters get to celebrate another birthday, but I bet there’s some neat stuff going on (or at least I hope so).

Unique

I love how unique you can be in Guild Wars 2. Everyone says end game is Fashion Wars – and they’re not wrong.

Finally

One of my legendary pieces required me to do a collection where you could only purchase 1 piece each day – and needed 13 pieces. One came from the ground nearby, but the rest required map currency and a lot of patience. To get to the collection vendor you also had to do a map event. I decided to park an alt there for the duration of my purchases so I could skip at least that one part.

Now I’ve got a neat miniature Zinn – and my legendary update. YAY!

Spinning Motivation

There are some folks on instagram who are amazing at the craft of spinning yarn – and I hope one day I’m just as good. Look up the hashtag #spinnersofinstagram and you’ll see what I mean!

To get better at something like this you have to practice every day, just like any other skill that involves muscle memory. I’m hoping that a year from now I can look back and see a clear line of progress in my spinning, too.
