When parsed out like this, the costs of what you get to what you spend in terms of Black Lion Chest Keys is fairly staggering. As a whole though, the actual prices and costs are next to meaningless. For example, I have a stack of revive orbs in my inventory I’ve never used. I didn’t even count the Teleport to a Friend in my gem cost simply because you can’t buy them at the Black Lion Trading Company anymore, and I have dozens of them just taking up space in my bank. The commemorative coins are essentially just 1 gold each, and the materials, which make up the majority of what I received, are frivolous, and I don’t believe anyone opens a black lion chest hoping for these “rare” materials when they dole out free Laurels by the dozens quite often, and heavy crafting bags only cost 1 laurel per bag. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2

It's also important to note that, if you don’t plan on crafting, material sales on the auction house can be very lucrative, simply by breaking down items as you go, accumulating enough of them, and then selling them in bulk. Ideally, you would do this after completely filling up your material bank slots of those particular items, but it’s entirely your call, if you wish to keep any crafting materials on hand, or if that doesn’t interest you and you’d rather have exchange those materials for Gold. In virtually all cases, yellow and orange items are worth breaking down for either the ectoplasms, which sell for a decent amount, or inscriptions when it comes to exotic weapons and gear. In most other cases, breaking down the gear is only really helpful if you want the raw materials, otherwise, you can generally make as much from selling the gear outright, plus the sigils and amulets that will eventually overrun your inventory from breaking down greens … [Read more...] about Returning to Guild Wars 2: That Pesky Itemization
See what sells, especially crafting resources like Ores. Ores can be gathered on the landscape easily and because the node is instanced to you, you’re not fighting with other players in the area to farm them. Simply start gathering what you can and start selling them regularly. A good website to keep track of the AH economy is GW2 Efficiency, which can track useful things like sales and profits. Alternatively, run the content a lot. Especially event and map meta trains that offers tons of loot bags. You can then deconstruct them for Gold and also sell them on the AH for Gold. … [Read more...] about Top 5 Guild Wars 2 New Player Tips 2019 – How To Be Effective In Guild Wars 2
Load and render times are a little more problematic to test then frame rates. Despite this, we don’t need a system that can measure down to milliseconds. We simply need to pinpoint pain issues. To this end, we took to the Path of Fire for this test. We performed a waypoint jump from Lion’s Arch to the city of Amnoon and timed the time taken from clicking the Amnoon waypoint until the cityscape finished rendering. This was repeated multiple times to ensure no issues or errant problems with the load times and compared,again, to the time to travel back to Lion’s Arch. The Number you will see here is a rounded average. Remember, we aren’t looking for the greatest precision, simply an indicator of performance bottlenecks. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Is Slow…. Is It Time for a New PC?
There are some restrictions, as was to be expected. Those are mostly to discourage spam (in mails, whispers and so on) and to encourage you to buy the game if you like it. That is, if you buy “Heart of Thorns”, your account will be upgraded to a standard account and the expansion will be unlocked. You will not have the chat and mail restrictions anymore then and you will have the regular amount of bag slots as well as 5 character slots just like everybody else. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Now Free to Play!
