GW2: Farming Dry Top

by manylaughs July 21, 2014

I’m not a big fan of farming. First, it’s something I’m not that good at. Some people just seem to have a knack for it. They gather up the mobs, burn them down, then do it, again. Over and over. And that’s the other thing – It just gets tedious for me.  There’s no denying, […]

If you’re crafting, you’re probably salvaging. With some exceptions for some special rares – usually ones with special skins – and exotics, an equipment drop is usually worth more to you for the mats salvaging it will yield than what you can sell it for on the Black Lion Trading Company.

As I mentioned, I’ve been making an attempt to get a precursor, dropping rare staffs into the forge. I have a pretty good idea how this will turn out, but it’s still a good experiment. The other day, I got this: Awesome, huh? That’s the exotic staff, Deathwish. I put 4 rare Krait Crooks in […]
