IF you buy the laurel gear, the gear should be account bound due to the fact that you can’t earn laurels per character, you have to earn them for the account.

They are acc bound afaik. They turn soulbound when you equip them.

Well, they should be account bound even when you equip them. The ascended Karka backpiece is account bound even after equipping. I switched that one between my alts till I found the right character for it.

The problem is, if you have multiple toons they are so expensive that if you need to change builds after you buy them, the cost is prohibitive. If they remained account bound you could get different stats and mix and match as needed among your alts. You could buy one set and use them for all your toons if you wanted. I have 8 characters and I am currently buying the pieces one by one for each and it’s taking quite a long time.

The trouble with a kitten is that
It grows up and becomes a cat.

Yeah, that probably has more to do with the fact that the Sclerite Karka Shell is a one-off event item. After all, Fervid Censer and Toymaker’s Bag are also account bound.

Do note that the backpiece skins that you get are also all account bound on acquire.

Why not do this for all equips then ? Why not make transmuting for free ?

It’s more the time gated costs that is the problem. It takes 30 laurels just to get an amulet. To respec if they nerf your build is much more painful than buying another set of exotics. If they made it equivalent in time I wouldn’t have any objections.

At this point, if I used laurels only for my 8 toons for example, it will take about 2 and a half years to just get jewelry. There are ways to get it faster of course. But it’s still a significant amount of time to completely gear up all 8.

Equipping eight characters with full ascended trinkets:

16 Rings —> 160 highTokens FotM —> 160 days of bad luck (assuming you only go once per day)
8 Amulets —> 240 Laurels —> 6 months of daily/ monthly
8 Backpieces —> 14,800 lowTokens FotM —> 148 days (assuming you only go once per day)
16 Accessories —> 162 Guild Commendations —> 32 weeks of guild missions

so … you need 2.5y ? I think 32w are enough.

And please … do not say ascended is hard to get. There are many more exotics which are harder to get. Those are soulbound as well. Not even mentioning legendaries …

The system is fine the way it is.

16 Accessories —> 162 Guild Commendations --> 32 weeks of guild missions

It’s 192 Commendations. Also, depends on a guild. Some guilds can do full complement of missions weekly, some can do only bounties (2 commendations/week, so 96 weeks), some can’t do guild missions at all and you need to use laurels then.

Not sure where did you get 100 relics per one fractal run as well.

And please … do not say ascended is hard to get.

Nobody is saying they are hard to get. We’re talking about time.

You can buy most of those right off the TP. You can buy eq with the same stats relatively cheap, or even craft them yourself (no, not talking about Mystic Toilet “crafting”).

Yes, there is a problem.

^
Right, I mistyped 192 to 162, but calculated correctly. If your guild does not perform all guild missions guest at others. That’s what the multi-guild system is for.

100 Fractal Relics = lvl 26 run (incl lvl20 daily) … the most common one. You can get more of less ofc.

Even if you say Ascended takes so much time to buy from laurels (original issue), take the same time.
Laurels → ~6 months = ~180d
highFotM → ~160d
lowFotM → ~148d
Guild → 32w = ~224d

Getting a weapon of the mist uses 1500 orichalcum ores and 250 ectos. Assuming you’d gather 20 ori ore per day, you’d also have to invest 75d of gather … just for a single weapon for a single character. Given you want to equip all of them with 2 weapons, it’d take 1200d simply for the orichalcums.

If they nerf your build, you should still be running full Berserker anyway.

Yes, pls make them account bound. I’ve run into this issue where I bought two pieces for two characters, then decided I wanted to swap the stats (or wanted to change the utility infusion). This is not possible, I have to delete the ascended gear and do dailies for another month…

Make account bound and let us pop new infusions on if we choose (just like all other gear). And please at least let us salvage ascended gear. I have all of these ascended ring drops in my bank that no one can use the stats. I can’t sell or scrap them… >.<

Getting 2 crafted weapons (the same stats – and we’re talking about stats, not looks here) – 10 gold (at worst, likely less). Can do it in one day. Skins for all those chars can take half a year, that’s completely ok.
