March will see the release of the WuvWuv progression system, new ranks you can earn in WvW visible to all other players, and new DubVDub specific abilities/bonuses that you can earn as you rank up.

That’s great and all, but is there any word on whether or not they’re going to be adding New cosmetic gear and/or cosmetic items to WvW in March? Maybe even Ascended?

I have nothing to spend my badges on because the current gear is awful (in both stat selection and appearance). I feel like WvW should have multiple sets of gear in terms of both cosmetics and stats, just like Dungeons do. Also, it should have more prestigious options for more devoted WvWers, equivalent to Legendaries, in my opinion.

I was just curious, maybe I missed something.

They intended WvW to be a casual weekend warrior excursion for dungeon pve players, so they assumed you would have all of your dungeon gear to show off out there.

No. Just no. Keep pvp as skill based as possible. The best pvp items (stat wise) should be fairly easy to obtain by anyone.

for some people it’s not a diversion, for some people it’s not even endgame, for some people it’s the only game in town.

This
Should be able to get the same type of gear in wvw as pve and not limited. It sux have to do dungeons and now guild missions to have the same gear as regular pvers. This in itself is why some servers have low populations for wvw.

March update comes to pass, new gear is added to the game for badges, and all across the servers, shouts in /map and /team are heard…

The Jump Puzzle across all maps become the highest populated areas of the game, rams gather dust, and keeps fall to ruin from disuse.

To prevent JP abuse (beyond what it already is), reduce the badges from chests, from 10 (@ lvl 80) to 2-4, add better item drops (rares / exotics) to compensate, and increase badge drop rate from kills, so WvW’rs can actually play rather than have half the map in the JP.

I don’t see why you can’t say whether or not ascended gear will be on the list.

If it’s not, I think you guys are going to have a VERY hard time explaining why at this point.

To be honest, it makes sense and is really only “fair”

The PvE experience has had a monopoly on the ENTIRE jewelry set of ascended gear. Why not let WVW have a monopoly on the weapons for a few months? If a PvE complains they can just say “We’re working on it”, like they did to us.

Then you would forever tie WvW to pve and simply take turns with the pve player base from then on. Except, the pve players base will get to take three turns to your every one turn. That’s assuming there’s a chance w3 will get Ascended gear where more likely you’ll get a slim chance at one of the currencies to buy into one of the pve grinds.

A word of advice it should not be at similar prices to the invaders gear because that is way too expensive and doesn’t reflect the badge drop rate of the majority of players.

But I’d be happy with just fairness of acquisition across the board for all modes.

He just said it would be for badges, he didn’t relate it to wvw beyond that. I’m guessing 100 laurels and 750 badges for some ascended gloves.

I’m glad that Anet causing drama by adding a 2 tier progression, seperating the haves and the have nots, is amusing. It’s so much fun when the developers are bigger trolls than the forum goers.

A game based on ethics with no integrity is bound to end up being populated by people who aren’t worth playing with.

I get the feeling that this new gear is going to require an insane amount of badges to obtain, and those of us who don’t zerg all the time getting maximum kill tags or do the JPs every day will be screwed. I started saving badges in mid Jan and have 1250 from 20-30 hours of actual WvW play a week…that better not be one piece of armor that looks like a clown suit on a Charr.

To the people commenting on badge drop rates:

Keep in mind this latest patch fairly significantly increased drop rates. Not say the prices won’t be extremely high, but I would just give it a few days to adjust to the NEW rate of badge acquisition before you think about what may be reasonable for gear. Yes it would be great to spend the badges i’ve saved and get all the new gear as soon as it’s out, but keep in mind that so far as they have introduced gear people have had to start grinding moving forward. We have an advantage because we have “saved” badges, but that shouldnt’ get us everything instantly.

More “stats sets” is in no way indicates Ascended gear.
Since there is only one set of gear atm, they are probably going to add Berserker, Knights etc. exotics.

It would not make any sense to not reward ascended since you can and should be able to play wvw without any pve. Well the new daily system solve this somehow, but I hope they will find a way, maybe some combined solution like with the earrings. It is very vital to wvw to have progression and a advantage from participating. I mean the new system shows they understand that you need some more rewarding system and items are a great way to improve further and to bring more ppl into wvw. Just imagine how full wvw would have been if they introduced ascended in wvw with fractals together.

I wouldnt mind if existing gear skins were available for WvW players. It’s pretty kitten trying to find a group for those Arah leggings I want for one of my characters without the “Zerker only + experience”, even though a fully exotic geared player can easily get through the content.

So Badges for Dungeon armor would be nice. And please give those PvEers a means to get the invader gear without grinding badges in return. I hear the medium WvW set looks pretty nifty.

As much as I’m excited to see new items for badges, i’m a little concerned about the appearance options.

Will there be ways of getting the identical skins outside of WvW? It would be unfortunate to have an influx of people in WvW who don’t want to be playing WvW and taking up spots from those who do while spamming the jump puzzles

So, gear and cosmetics in WvW. Possibly a really bad idea.

If the cost is very high (say 1k badges for one item) it will probably reward true WvWers and discourage PVE players. If the cost is low and the new items are shiny enough the PVE mob will come to WvW maps. You know what that means

So, hopefully Anet will either discard WvW gear introduction or the price will be very high (that is, the effort/reward ratio in PVE should remain much more attractive).

There is nothing wrong with attracting PvE players to do WvW. And no, queues are not a good excuse for trying to make people not play WvW. For ArenaNet, they want everyone to do everything.

Cosmetics in WvW are a great idea. GW has always been about cosmetics and being able to get good ones in WvW should always be a thing.

It’s silly how shafted WvW players have been in regards to gear / cosmetics / use of Badges.

The badge drop rate now is way too high in WvW imo. With all the extra bags dropping now, I am not sure how anyone can still say the badge rate is too low.

But yeah, regarding the jump puzzles, they should be removed completely from W3. They take up queue space from people actually wanting to W3.
