Siphaed Its crazy that I havent played GW2 in over a year and people are still making arguments like this. There is nothing wrong with rewarding PvPers and it doesnt have a negative impact on you at all.

Sinaptic Veldan Siphaed in contrast to that: it was never so easy to make hugh amounts of gold in this game as it is today and just buy the stuff from th TP.

well please remember that after anet found out how easy it was for some they nerfed the hell out all situations and continue to nerf to this day.
SO those who got there first got the best and then everything went to crap. They nerfed plinx alone like 3-4 times.

Siphaed Stop separating PvE from PvP…It’s one game, and there’s no rule that says PvPers don’t play PvE or don’t appreciate PvE rewards. It’s people like you who complain and do their damnedest to create divisiveness.

Siphaed Since the launch of the game? I hope you are exaggerating… I had a legendary 3 months after launch, without getting any of its components by luck… I just farmed it through DEs. If you take years trying your “damnedest” then you’re doing something very wrong.

Caerulei Siphaed Then they should make some unique tourney skins like they did for the WvW Season.     The problem is that the Legendary weapons are items of great investment. 
 Whether you craft one yourself, or purchase one through $100’s worth of Gems, someone somewhere had to go through the long tasks required to craft one. 500 WvW badges,  world map completion, 200 skill points, and 250 Obsidian Shards (which used to mean a huge chunk of Karma spent at the Temple of Balthazar); and that is just for the Gift of Mastery, which is only 1/4th of the whole thing.  Throw in 2,000 specific T6 crafting mats, 250 Ectoplasms, 77 Mystic Clovers (which averaged another 200 Ectos, 200 Obsidian shards, Mystic Coins, and mystic reagents); there’s another 1/4th for the Gift of Fortune.  Now then for the specific there is the 500 Dungeon badges, some more rare materials depending on the crafted Legendary, 100g for the Icy Runestones, and then FINALLY the Precursor to wrap it all up in.   

There is no “force to play the game mode”.  If they want a Legendary PvE weapon, then they PvE for said weapon.  In fact, prior to the Wardrobe update, there was no such thing as Legendary weapons in PvP because they were strictly a PvE/WvW item.    It just trivializes the item.

Siphaed Most PvPers ONLY play PvP.  Giving them a chance to earn a PvE reward is actually pretty cool.  And it’s not just “Giving Away”.  Winning these tourneys is incredibly difficult and requires massive amounts of skill and coordination and time learning PvP.  All the game is doing is providing a way for PvPers to acquire the height of what PvEers do, without being forced to play the game mode they otherwise would never play.

So they’re just giving away something so heavily invested in the PvE aspects of the game to PvPers?  That seems….how do I put this? They’re giving a middle-finger to PvEers who have been trying their damnedest to try to get one of these things since the launch of the game.
