So I looked up some recipes since I was kind of stuck. Apparently not being a good cook IRL translates into not know how to make recipes in GW2. I had plenty of ingredients for these, I just didn't know exactly what to combine.

Anyways, here's a list of the more interesting things I can do.

--Strawberries and Biscuits
Nourishment (30m): 10% Magic Find.
+10 Experience from kills.
Req. Lvl. 15

--Clam Cakes
Nourishment (30m): 10% Magic Find.
+10 Experience from kills.
Req. Lvl. 25

--Veggie Burger
Nourishment (30m): +30 condition damage
+10 Experience from kills.
Req. Lvl. 20

--Sage Stuffed Mushroom
Nourishment (30m): Gain +60 condition damage for 30 seconds when you kill a foe. (This effect does not stack)
+10 Experience from kills.
Req. Lvl. 20

And my personal favorite:

--Grilled Portobello Mushroom
Nourishment (30m): +50 condition damage
+40 precision
+10 Experience from kills.
Req. Lvl. 30

Speaking of WvW, I was queued for 2hrs last night and got in just before it was time to log out. Not fun.

Our only option would be to designate WvWvW groups during non-peak hours or move to a low-pop server and lose all our influence upgrades.

Personally, I'd rather wait it out until people start slowing down on WvWvW.

Oooooh Those portobello mushrooms are nice for a thief!

What mats do you need?

So, 'Strawberries and Biscuits' and 'Clam Cakes' have the exact same buff so eating the higher level req'd makes no improvement I'm guessing. You would think that they would up the xp gain or something.

Is one of them +10 experience from kills and one +10% experience from kills? I've seen both on different foods.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 12, 2012 10:04:51 AM PDT
I agree it should be higher XP gain if the food is higher level. I think the only difference is the level requirement for using them, which is pretty silly when you consider that you'll start getting clams before you start getting strawberries.

I need 2 portobello mushrooms, 1 jar of vegetable oil, and 1 pile of salt and pepper.

Completely agree with you. Would rather wait it out. I think the queues will slow down when all the "flavor of the month" tourists move on to Neverwinter or whatever MMO comes out next.

Upgraded the guild to 100 slots since we hit 40 members last night. If you play with someone that isn't yet in a guild, ask them to join!

We're running our first +10% MF weekend this weekend and hopefully can continue each weekend in the future as well. It'll slow down progress on other upgrades, but oh well.

I'm also going to activate a +5% EXP gain buff tomorrow morning. Enjoy everyone!

Had just hit 20 last time I logged in(haven't had too much time to invest in any game for a while), but I'm hoping to run this weekend to get up higher. My level is outpacing my gear so I might have to hit the AH to see what they have. My armor and weapon smithing is grinding to a halt because I can't seem to find anything else to create in Discovery with the mats that I'm getting so I can't use that to outfit myself.

If anyone needs jewelry I'm almost at 175. I can make some pretty nice gear up to level 40 or so right now.

i think I'm going to spend my gaming time this weekend just working on crafting. I've been spending all my time just leveling and exploring, but I have a TON of mats saved up and it's about time to use them!

I think I got my thief to around 46 or so from crafting last night. I almost had the monthly achievement completed, but then this happened:

Picture 1: I was 1 jump away from climbing a tower with nothing to show for it but a rich silver vain and a nice screenshot opportunity. (no vista here folks, but it was crazy hard to get to just this point on the tower):

Picture 2: 3 seconds later:

You can get some crazy XP crafting. My last big crafting binge took me from level 71-74. About 300k worth of XP. Now I need to farm for my next binge.

I hope I have some time to play this weekend. My scehdule has been pretty crazy lately.

For anyone who wants specifc food items for this weekend, let me know tonight. You can mail the materials to my Norn (name: Nattan Shuluh) and I will send the finished product back to you directly rather than through the guild bank.

Last night I had like 74,600 XP out of 75,000 and I died while I was in what I thought was a safe area! Anyways, I'm gonna use a crafting booster to get XP. I'm almost able to make steel weapons.

Got some food recipes that significantly increase magic find while under the effects of a boon.

GL Nate! I almost had tier IV needed for the Experience Survivor monthly achievement (100k XP), died at 81.525k. So frustrating. I love it though...I am a willing glutton for that kind of punishment.

Posted on Sep 26, 2012 6:14:28 AM PDT
I hit 80k exp last night while doing some events and then realized it was far past my bedtime to continue playing.

When I sign in tonight will I need to start over for the 100k thing again? Maybe I'll go craft 20k worth of XP....

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 26, 2012 6:17:22 AM PDT
I think they fixed that, so you should be alright.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 26, 2012 6:18:59 AM PDT
I really hope so. The highest I was before this was in the 70's before I fell off that tower.
