[GW2] I’m Legendary!

So what have I been up to?

I’ve been busy crafting a Legendary weapon in Guild Wars 2: The sword, Bolt!

Joining the Legendary Club is pretty much the biggest achievement of my Guild Wars 2 career. Legendary weapons have the same stats as Ascended weapons, but have the unique ability to change their stat sets at will. Crafting one is a lengthy journey that requires lots of time and lots of gold. Owning one is a status symbol thing.

I didn’t pray hard enough to RNGesus to give me a precursor drop, so I made my own luck.

$$$$$$$ daaayyuuumm $$$$$$$

The hardest part was buying the precursor, Zap. Hours and hours of Silverwastes chest farming and dungeon running.

I’d already done map completion back when the game came out. Back then I meticulously completed each map before moving onto the next because I knew I wanted to have 100% completion at some point, so might as well do it the first time so I didn’t have to come back later.

I’m thinking I probably won’t do another Legendary unless I get a random precursor drop, because the other Legendaries don’t really look cool to me.

But hey, do you think my Elementalist needs a Legendary too? I hope Heart of Thorns gives us some cool looking Legendary weapons and not just armour. I don’t really like the shooting rainbows thing that Bifrost has going on…

Song of the Day #39

I love Guild Wars 2. Do you play? Who said no?! Why not?!

Doesn’t matter. Just listen to this. “The Gamescom Trailer” song, Fear Not This Night: An anthem of hope of  the Sylvari sung by the mystical Pale Tree -butchered quote from somewhere.

JUST LISTEN OK. I HAVE IT ON REPEAT.

Guild Wars 2 Options/Hotkeys: My setup and suggestions

Whenever I get into a game, I always check the options right away. Often, there are things that you KNOW that you’ll want turned on immediately, and graphics options should be fiddled with ASAP to get the best balance between graphics and performance. Guild Wars 2 is one such game that you should adjust the options for, and if you haven’t already, or if you’re new, or if you’ve been using mostly default settings, you should open up that Options menu and get started.

In this post, I’ll post pictures of my current set-up and suggestions/explanations/advice. Some of the settings (esp. Graphics and Controls) are personal preference, or dependent on your computer (Graphics) so please keep that in mind. ^^

Let’s begin!
