Wintersday Redux

I must admit having missed the actual Wintersday  i was much releived to find that i would get a second chance. I have found that this year i actually have a goal of acquiring rainbow candy canes and candy cane shards for use on wintersday gifts or platinum which ever havent decided yet.

My cousin thinks i should use em to get gifts and open em says i might come out with quite a few items i would want and he might be right but then its not for awhile now so we shall see. I have all 8 slots filled so i figure i might as well do all the toon's quests in eye of the north for cc shards and so far its come out quite well around 150 so far and about 5 toons to go. And the snow ball fight quest i only did it with the one so i still have to do it for the others but i know what to do now....

Hopefully that goes well on the other hand destroyer cores and jotun pelts seem to be elusive for me. So far spent all day yesterday looking to try to find a way to do glints challenge but my guild doesnt seem to worry much about rainbow cc's.  Hell id figure they would be worth something since they can only be acquired during wintersday so im going to get me a stack of em come hell or high water.

Oh well back to the grindstone

The price of Z-Keys in China

Is it possible that the gold sellers in Guild Wars have tossed out the gold and went with Z-keys and ecto's? People i have talked to seem to think so. As you may well know i dont deal with ectos and z keys just not worth my time but for some it is. A friend of mine relayed that he has seen numerous ppl in the isles of balthazar (if thats its name? where the zaishen quests are located) selling enormous amounts of z-keys.

Are these hard to obtain? Im told it requires 5k balthazar points or 1 gold coin to obtain a key.

Now Im not a math person but one would be hard pressed to see someone with 600-800 z-keys

20 z-keys forr 100k platinum now i have no idea as to what that curtails but as you can see i dont see it being worth that amount.

But thats me this is just my opinion but as i stated in a previous post these keys are becoming the new platinum and when you look at it that can make disastrous for the game's economy.

Well whatever this case maybe its worth a thought i think and who knows maybe its worth it after all as long as the players are happy who cares how its obtained right?

Ranger pets what are they good for absolutly nothing

Actually they do seem to be somewhat useful at least in some cases just i cant think of anything off the top of my head where a pet actually did something other then die

which also makes me wonder how it will work in gw2 or if they will even have pets ?

though my favorite pet is the moa bird i think  though there are quite a few pets the moa just seemed cool to me this big ass bird pecking at people just something cool about that plus where are the monkey's i mean seriously i wont a monkey for a pet that would be awesome

maybe some magical poo throwing monkey with healing bah

And what is it with mini pets what robbery got all these mini pets and there really isnt anything you can do with them but show them off and people pay insane amounts of money for them well for the ones that are poular its been awhile so i aint sure what mini pets are hot items but usually its something complex like a bone dragon or mini gwen or something to that effect

But one thing id really like to see would be an auction house or wait for it add the personal stores that way instead of tons of wtb and wts you just have some dude sitting down hawking his wares through the store no mess no fuss no guarantee it wont be annoying but hey just a thought

oh well time is coming to a close

Zaishen keys and Ecto's

I was having a talk with my cousin yesterday was asking him what he would talk about in a blog mainly about guild wars.

Now i am not much interested in Z-keys or Ecto's for that matter but then he is one who loves opening that zaishen chest  either way he tells me the cost of the zkeys stays the same but yet the amount of keys you get for the same 100k price is getting less and less he tells me after 3 days the price has stayed the same but the keys have gone down.

He tells me they are going the way of ecto's and going to be the new platinum now what i dont understand is how these things can become so pricey.

Ecto's ok i can see that as they are needed for an armor set i think but keys? Granted you might get something cool out of it but youd have to have alot of keys.

he also brought up a valid point  if hero's and henchies are getting payed basically since if you run solo they take a cut of the gold and loot if they are getting payed i think the henchies should be controllable

just like the hero's are with the flags and all that he on the other hand wants better control over hero's and henchies and i honestly cant disagree with that

as it stands now the hero's can be a tad irritating you click on one enemy and the henchie wants to just keep attacking the warrior enemy even though im trying to get him to help finish off the monk that is allowing the warrior to kill us 

well i wanted to say something intelligent but all i could come up with was this so live with it

Guild Wars 2 Pipe dream or not?

After playing Guild wars for considerable time ( since 2006 ) had to look that up when nightfall came out all you heard was about Guild Wars 2 i heard in game from various people on a regular basis would hear guild wars 2 is coming just a little while longer stuff like that.

Now i know that rumors are not to be trusted. Its just interesting to me how long this game is actually taking and granted i know that the devs are working their asses off. I give props for that . But what i dont understand is how all this time and its still very vague at least as far as Im concerned the devs are almost nil on anything. you have aion that came out and still no Guild Wars 2.

It would seem to me that if a game as popular as Guild Wars Enough so i plunked down almost $200 on all the campaigns and you got efforts going out on what i would consider a mediocre game like aion.

Really? Aion? Im sorry but that game seems like a minor notch when compared to a monster such as gw2.

But then if it comes out and the game is good then bravo I will say that i dont think that gw2 should be treated  like an old car dont slap on new paint and shove it out the door

I think its very well possible that if it keeps being worked on for as long as possible it could rival wow

(fanbois everywhere are gnashing teeth as i write this Im sure)

I suppose in retrospect i could see where Aion could help fuel the cauldron as it were with funding for gw2

Well just random thinking

Grind Whats it good for ?

Honestly I've never understood "the grind" at least complaints about it .

Look at super mario bros very first one remember the old bop the turtle shell get a 100 lives and win the game trick? For those who don't ill just refresh you bop the turtle shell by jumping on it and rebounding it off a surface that caused it to ricochet back to you in effect grinding out points for 100 lives.

But one thing i always considered was going over the 100 lives you could but if you did you would go too high and it would game over you making you start from the start of the game. also it would penalize you in the japanese version by not allowing you into the 9 th world i think could be no warps but i think it was the snes that had that .

either way as the years went by i played several hundred more games. One game i always hated but played it anyways was phantasy star for the sega genesis oh man i hated that game i would never get very far in it since it was rather difficult at least for me anyway.

but games like that had a tremendous amount of what i always perceived was grind the meat and potatoes you know the actual game but that was what made the game fun final fantasy loved it ff7 eh it was ok final fantasy tactics eh liked shining force better chrono cross among others as the years have gone by and i have had a chance to play enough games i can finally say im ready for something new.

thats not to say i dont like my old games hell emulators are awesome but i have to admit playing games that have grind isnt the issue the fact that its the same old game new skin and in those games i got something of worth even if it was worth 1 cent it was something the grind has to even out honestly if i am not getting back what im expending out that's just wrong

i dont think i should feel like im working at a game i have payed for or am paying for.

i also think that the players pay for the developers paychecks and they should get their head out their asses and  rethink the way they are acting.

and yes i know ive gone off into a rant but hell this is my blog so tough

am seeing way too many companies act like they can just put out any piece of garbage and call it a game and sell it for $50 Quite honestly id like to know if they are even looking at what is going on sometimes

and to be completely honest i think its sad that a game that is almost 20 years old is more interesting then a game thats been released in the past 5 years

and yes im being vague on purpose because there are alot of games i consider garbage and i have a feeling if i leave it vague ppl will come to their own conclusion

 dang forgot

No Idea

Honestly i have no idea what this blog is for ideally i wanted to be able to talk about various games i have played or/and games i don't want to play or haven't got to play so on and so on.

But to be honest i haven't a clue what to write at the moment and given the fact that i have to go to work in about 15 minutes i doubt it will be anything more profound than this.

Here ill just say Guild wars will be a game a focus on first mainly cuz its the first mmo i ever played unless you count Diablo or ultima but that wasnt online i dont think or was that kings quest hell i dont know oh well i got to go
