This was the easiest leveling I've ever experienced in a game. Getting a class to level 80 should be pretty simple if you actually enjoy playing that class.

I love Thief; but it's still too boring.

It's common with me, though. For the past several years I've been happily leveling in battlegrounds.

When you give up just give me all your stuff, and your account. I'll make geeeewd use of it >:D

Next time I log in I'm either gonna dungeon if I get in good parties or farm and cook. See if I can make some of that sweet Magic find food. Later I'll make myself a full magic find set.

I got a magic find set way back, I haven't touched it in months. I kill so slow with the set that it just doesn't feel worth it.

In other news, I have decided on a new goal. I finished Jormag's Breath. I'm gonna go for Infinite Light now. 250 Charged Lodestones. The ultimate money baller weapon.

You know whats sad is that I don't want the legendary rifle I want the precursor. It has the stats I want and I can build it the way I want.

Oh and I was wondering. i was thinking of getting a full berserker set but fit defense gems (vit tough,power) into it and try to balance it. Do you think this would work out in the long run or should i just build it full glass cannon and make a knight set later.

Remember i am a engineer.

Well I'm working on that except Soldier Armour and Rampager Accessories. So I'll let you know how that pans out. Lol and Beserker Daggers... maybe.

Hey Sera, do you have weapon smiting at 400? I believe I have all the mats to make a pair of exotic Daggers.

I only have 400 in cooking, huntsman and jewels.

If by gems, you mean runes, it can help. You can be full glass cannon so long as you know how to avoid attacks. Knight's set is Power/Prec/Toughness, so if you slot it with Vit/Toughness runes, you should be relatively balanced. Glass cannon is just an issue in huge AoE fights, such as Gigantus Lupicus. You're almost guaranteed to get hit there (I take like 9-10k in one hit on my 3100ish toughness Warrior).

Alternatively, you could also build 2 sets of armor.

I have 400 in all crafts except Huntsman.

Well I have 400 Huntsman so if you ever need anything craft I'm your dude. Though I'm sure you'll have it too soon enough.

I'm just looking for someone to craft me some daggers. Would do it myself but it would take me a while to raise up weapon smiting.

Was originally going to have Bohvey craft them for me but he hasn't been on in a while and I've got these matts sitting around waiting.

Just mail me the mats (Sera.6539) and tell me which dagger you need.

Ok here is the deal.

They said that we'd get an "expansion's worth of content" between now and Feb (said that in December)

However they both used poor choices in words and people too the word "expansion" alone away from it and expected an actual expansion.

So to had to dial it back and break it down.

Basically there will be a lot of content added between Feb and March. Enough that could fill an expansion minus New land masses, races or level increases.

January will be rather small but will be some ground work set for adding in large stuff in Feb and March.

Basically they want to do some revamps and solidify the game's current state before tossing in new junk. So expect the next few patches to be FEATURE filled. (crosses fingers for guesting) Lots of features coming for WvW too particularly they've been silent about PvE but dungeon improvements seem eminent as well as some events and the like to make more maps viable. We might see the first cycling in and out of DEs, etc. Nothing solid on the PvE side but we know WvW will get some features for sure.

Plus they are working on the Culling thing.

Edit: Here we go:

Colin Johanson

"Hey guys,

Just to help provide some clarity on this, we’ll be releasing within the next couple of weeks a high level summary of our big plans for the first half of 2013 to help provide more transparency into our plans with the game going forward. This will include providing more details about our goals for the game, information about the stories and features that you’ll see in the Jan/Feb/March releases.

To set expectations accordingly, the January release will be a relatively small release that sets the table for the stories and features we plan to roll out with the Feb/March releases and beyond. Also, there will be no new race, profession, or new region with these larger Feb/March releases. One of our major goals with these releases is making our existing world as strong as possible, ensuring there are reasons to go to all the locations in the world we’ve already built, and strengthening the core game we’ve provided. In saying this will be an expansions worth of stuff in these releases, we’re talking about the number of new features that will be rolled out across PvE, WvW, and PvP in early 2013, which usually you’d only find in an expansion for a traditional MMORPG.

More details and specifics to come in the next couple of weeks, but I hope that helps provide some more insight into what to expect at a very high level."

I hope they add fun battlegrounds that expand between 5-15 player matches, in semi-open areas.

I hate how claustrophobic the current ones feel.

Also, battleground leveling would be awesome.

Make it happen and I'll have like 10 slots of alts at 80!
