OP  11/13/12 10:03:13 AM#1

I'm still grinding exotics, although I pre ordered (not pre purchased) the game. I got it a few days later than the actual release, but still.. I've played the game for long time. Took me forever to get 80 and it seems to take even longer time to grind for exotics.


Although I play quite much I've made many mistakes, for example:

  • wasting my money on crafting (~0% profit even at 400 crafting)
  • playing WvW 90% of the time once I hit 80lvl
  • not running with swarm in WvW (or even aiming for easy events)
  • not doing any dungeon grind (I've completed story modes on max 5 dungeons)
So I currently have 2 out of {god knows how many} exotics. 0 exotic weapons.
Still this is not thread to list your uber awesome money making schemes. I just want to see if you are still grinding or not.

Soo.. I'm curious if I'm the only one who is still grinding for full exotic set. Are you still grinding exotics?

Are you still grinding exotics?

I am still looking to get exotic gear, but to be honest my case is that I spvp around 70% of my playtime.

nope, got 40 or so exotics in total almost all of them was bought of the TP or crafted with mats bought through the TP, I was eventually aiming at having all different sets (like cleric,berserker etc) and all weapons (warrior) but that seems rather pointless now.

Working full time, training for a marathon and playing Pathfinder on the weekends and I hit 80, completed story plus had full set of exotics in two weeks. Game doesnt' have much to offer.

I have all my exotic armor and a staff on my elementalist but I still need all the jewelry and upgrades. I've bought all my exotic pieces from the TP. It cost all the gold I had earned getting to 80 plus all the gold I had on my level 50ish guardian alt. I would have had a lot more gold if I had known from the beginning how expensive it would be to gear up at 80 and had known various tips I only learned near the end when the gold grind became clearer.

I don't find WvW that great anyway, so I'm not really in a hurry to finish the elementalist's gear. I only play it a few times a week, so there's no rush. I'm making gold while leveling my guardian and I'll transfer that gold to my elementalist as I earn enough to buy each new exotic piece I'm lacking.

The announcement of the new Ascended gear tier further diminishes my interest in completing my set of exotics (not to mention playing the game at all).

I have 3 sets of gear with different stats and related to different builds. I still need at least 3 more t cover most of the general ways I can play my necromancer. Count MF gear too. Also few weapons of the same kind with different Sigli.

Also, working on alt basic gear -  exotic + weapons.

Notice I dont talk about skins, this will come in time. I will transmutate better (in my eyes) skins to existing gear, but this take longer then completing sets itself.

Ive never realy grind i play and enjoy having fun with the game and still have complete exotic gear and jewels, its easy.

Ive only done 1 dungeon for nightmare staff and scepter in explorable mode.

Im not conerned about gold or skins i just play and see what i gather while playing.

Game is not work you know:)

Getting karma is not realy hard, thus easy getting exotics.

I almost have a complete Orrian karma set. Really helped that you can now get liquid karma from doing daily achievement. Although if I had focused more on doing dungeons I would have had an exotic set a long time ago. I have been focusing on map completion and WorldVWorld mostly. I have 6 exotic weapons for my main, I just bought them off tp, they aren't that expensive... So it isn't at all difficult to get exotic armor in GW2, you just have to put your mind to it.

I have exotic armor and weapons on my first level 80. Only 1 set of armor, but I've swapped a few pieces around, so about the equivalent of 2 sets.

Eventually I'll grind again on another character, but not yet.

The most expensive by far was getting 6 superior runes.

Grind, hmm I thought that is one of the reasons to play GW2 because its not a grindy game. So in the end its just as grindy as all the rest.

completed my third set for my ele, 2 sets for my engi and 2 sets for my mesmer, I didnt grind anything I just play the auction house and each item is roughly 1.5 - 1.8 g except for accesories which i crafted.  Not only that but I run a guild and have geared atleast 2 - 3 people a week even more. when you work as a group its too easy.

All MMO's have some grind, the difference here is this is for LOOKS NOT for STATS. In Rift, you you want to do the harder dungeons, you have to grind out gear to be able to get a group, Does that explain it for you?

Still grinding for my second set. Ever since they added that annoying DR system to the open world (no it's not limited to the dungeons) and they screwed the pooch on the MF system I've had a difficult time getting ANY rares to drop off anything period.


And yes there is a problem with dungeons. Requiring people do dungeons for ANYTHING is not a good game plan because it further separates the community.

Already there are requests flooding the forums on their website for things like gearcheck, dps meters etc basically EVERYTHING that became such a huge problem even in WoW. Not only does this go 180 from what type of game this would be but it also does irreparable harm to the communities involved.

What I don't understand is why is it that they suddenly decided to listen to players who are 1: the minority 2: are only interested in the next shiny and will leave this game in a heartbeat for the next shiny (instead of those of us who hang around for a long time) 3: suddenly decided the best gear should only come from dungeons. What changed. Did someone get promoted over the lead dev? Was there some wallstreet buy out we're not hearing about? What?

I just hope they don't let their game become another SWTOR.

If the Ascended gear is easily obtainable that is...tokens.

I was until yesterday. Now I'm just playing lowbie alts - no point playing a level cap character in the lead-up to a new instalment on the gear treadmill being released.

I abandoned crafting early.  I also lost interest after buying cheap rares from the TP.  That gear was good enough for my needs.  I didn't enjoy dungeons enough to grind them for minor improvements and nothing else in the game held my interest long enough to want to farm better looking gear just to farm DE's for karma.


If GW2 was the only game available I would have spent a lot more time in it.  But with so many games competing for our time, it just didn't stand out enough for me.

I have no interest in getting exotics, so would that be a yes or a no?

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

My highest level character just turned 61 last night (guardian, with two other chars in the 30-40's, and one more 20something)... so I haven't even started the grind yet.. :)

What can men do against such reckless hate?
