My Guardian Desderata Geist hit 80 this morning while working away at the crafting bench. I was working on getting her Weaponsmithing past the 300 mark and just barely made it past.

Once I finished up my crafting though it was time to start gearing up for 80. It’s an important day because for the most part this will be the last set of armor I’ll have to pick up unless I want to min/max for a special build.

I’m going with Exotic grade armor for now and in one morning’s work I picked up a full set of Exotic armor.

I picked up my armor in a round about way. I had (emphasis on had) a bunch of Karma and Honor points in my wallet and decided that for once I’d use that instead of just working on paying for everything with hard earned currency.

All except for the Vigil skins, those guys want gold no matter how far in the story line you are. Guess that’s how they pay for all those helicopters in Orr. Continue reading

GuildWars2: Points of Interest Tomorrow With Bill Murphy

Maybe a long lost cousin?

If you’re into Guild Wars 2 you may want to check out Points of Interest the Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel this Friday (July 18) at 12pm PDT.

The skinny is that they’ll have and I quote:

Kate Welch is joined by writer Peter Fries, environment artist Tami Foote, and Environment Design Specialist Josh Foreman…

That is right along with MMORPG.com’s Bill Murphy. One of the folks over there I generally agree with.

Hopefully there will be some discussions about upcoming additional weapons and weapon skills, but who can say.

I’ll probably watch it in re-run since I’m on the Euro side of things now, but it sounds like it’s worth checking out.

GuildWars2: Quickie

Not feeling great, but wanted to give a quick updated on my Guardian’s status. Right now Desderata is sitting at just under level 65 and almost able to use the new armor set hanging out in her bags.

I’m really looking forward to logging in though and seeing what’s going on in the world. It looks like the patch that landed today includes more of those vines I saw in the Brisbane Wildlands and Kessex hills. Since they are only in those two zones I really want to know if they are working on making their way towards Lion’s Arch or if they’re going to spread into the surrounding zones.

Now with all of 15 levels before I can wander into the new zone and do more than unlock the first Waypoint I’m really starting to get antsy about learning more.

Thing is though I am going to be helping some guildies level more squishy characters with my Guardian so it might take a bit. On the upside since the story journal has been added, if we don’t get a chance to get to it now, hopefully I’ll be able to see it later.

Until next time I hope everyone is enjoying themselves wherever they find fun and friendship.
