No dave it does not.

I made level 80 over the weekend. I have 85% of the world map completed. My levels came almost completely from adventuring. My highest crafting skill is still under 75.

I have to say that I am not sure how essential crafting is in this game. Some of my gear is still 20 or so levels lower than my actual level. I was able to buy an exotic weapon off the trading post (exotic gear is given as rewards for 100% completing the higher level zones). Now, maybe my gear is less important because I am a ranger who uses ranged combat 100% of the time. It might be different if I was a melee character

Ok thanks...i'm going to check this out. Maybe it will be the excuse I finally need to build a gaming rig.

I regularly alternate between using drops, crafted weapons, and karma rewards. Crafting can certainly be viable.

Just got my monthly chest. A little XP, less than 1 silver, and 20 Mystic Coins.

That's it? Hrmph... oh well.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2012 6:27:55 PM PDT
I was EXTREMELY disappointed. I expected a few level appropriate green weapons at least.

There's a monthly chest? How do I locate it? I haven't logged in for about 1 1/2 weeks, really need to get back in there but I've started spending some serious time with Dark Souls. Ever since I've upgraded my G-card, everything runs so smooth and I've been trying to figure out what to do with the damned pendant. Trying a run without joining a covenant to see if that opens up anything.

It's accessed by doing monthly achievements. Hit 'H' and go to the Achievements tab, then click on monthly to see what you need.

It resets at the end of the calendar month, I think.

Monthly achievements just reset. I played for about an hour this morning. Running my level 70 through the Dredgehaunt area, I was able to EASILY hit my 100K survivor achievement.

Are you using the graphics fix?

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 1, 2012 5:39:56 AM PDT

I'm still stuck around 80k. My thief is too squishy to be out on her own...

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 1, 2012 6:31:30 AM PDT
How was your weekend?! Did you win and/or get wasted?

I'll help you. I had no idea it would be so easy to get once you get to high zones.

I ran into two major disappointments over the weekend.

1. I got 100% complete on every PvE zone including all cities and Lions Arch. I thought I would go for 100% world completion. Unfortunately the last 9% of Skill Points, Vistas, POIs and Waypoints are in WvWvW. I have no desire, at least at the moment, of messing with this game mode. So my hope to get 100% world completion is on hold.

2. So, because I had no more world exploration to accomplish in the PvE zones I decided to complete my personal story quest. I spent a large chunk of Saturday's play time doing the level 78 - 80 story quests. I progress and get to the final quest. I am ready to kill the big evil but I can't, because after 80 levels of play and dozens of personal story quests all completed solo I find out that you can't complete the final quest unless you are in a damn 5 man group! Really? I am required to be in a pick up group to finish my personal story quests?

Those two items frustrated me. They did not detract from the solid month of fun (over 150 hours played) but they still stung a little bit. I decided to take a little break before trying another character and purchased Torchlight II yesterday.

Not a bad weekend. We really didn't do a whole lot during the day Saturday. Went to Cabela's on the way home Sunday though, so that was pretty fun.

Didn't win anything in the casino, lost $30. They gave us more money for activities than we thought though, so we each spent like $200 on games, hehe.

I had 8-12 rum and cokes, two glasses of wine, and a gin and tonic. Then I somehow cut my head when I was (from what I've heard) trying to cram myself into the closet to "pretend I was Tom Cruise in the episode of SouthPark on scientology" while singing, "Stuck in the closet!"

So I started bleeding quite a bit... Shortly thereafter I passed out....

Then I got really sick, but at least I didn't wake up with a hangover.

It happens to the best of us.

I havnt had much time to play lately i think i played a little tuesday and got my warrior up to 18. Im hopeing to find some time tonight to jump on and do some stuff.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 1, 2012 8:11:00 AM PDT
I must not be among the best of us because I don't recall ever cutting my head while impersonating Tom Cruise. Santa Claus, yes but never Tom Cruise.

Gratz, but that kind of sucks. You should be able to get the vistas in WvWvW relatively easily. Really sucks about the final mission.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 1, 2012 10:23:08 AM PDT
Haha, awesome!

T. E. Maddox says:
Maybe I will spend some time trying to get to some of the spots in WvWvW. I did mess with it a little yesterday and got the ones in my teams territory. But, the idea of trying to sneak through enemy territory is a bit of a deterrent. Shoot, I even got killed by an invader deep in my team's territory as I went for a skill challenge. Plus, it is a little unfair for me to take up a valuable spot when I am simply trying to get to the vistas, etc.

The ending quest requiring a group is just mind boggling to me, especially when you consider that you may have to watch the cut-scene conversations happen with one of the other four player's character instead of your own.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 1, 2012 11:46:21 AM PDT
Remember that every time WvWvW resets we are often in a new area.

You can still just keep grabbing the vistas and spots within our own territory, we'll just have moved to a new place.

The hardest ones to get are the ones in the eternal battlegrounds.

I remembered to queue the MF buff this week ;)

We're closing in on 10k Influence, which means we should be able to get Economy IV soon. I need to get back into this and hit 80...

Hit 63 over the weekend and found a crapload of rares (around 8 of them). I had two identical rare corruption pistols (lvl 67) drop 10 seconds apart from each other during an event.

Fought my first dragon (during the storyline, that was awesome!). I'm going to try to get into a few more of these in the future. The dragon random events are a blast, but the server reset right as our event started. (LAME!)

I encourage everyone to try to recruit randoms they see without a guild. Often it's because the player doesn't think casual guilds exist or haven't sought one out. The more players we have, the more influence we gain, and the more likely our guild can keep everyone buffed!

Just remember, if you're going to be in the guild please represent us so that we have a steady influence gain coming in. If you recruit someone to the guild, please ask them to represent us to help with the magic find buff weekends. When recruiting someone, make sure you tell them about the +10% rare magic find buffs I try to run Friday through Sunday. It helps everyone so long as players don't abuse us for it. :)

Nate and I fought some more dragons last night.

It was pretty epic, although a little easy considering we had 50+ people (mostly level 80's deleveled) beating them down with us.

I posted a ton more screenshots with supersampling and max settings if anyone wants to take a look. This game is gorgeous:

Killed The Shatterer last night. As Capt said we had a lot of high level people so it was pretty easy.
