You can still finish the monthly but just know that it won't count towards receiving Laurels.

WHAT?! Why is that? Does that not start till next month? If so screw it.

These new dailies are good and bad. I had a tough time finding 10 people to revive. Yesterday it was 6:58 I had to find 1 dead person to revive before reset. Out of no where this random player got killed by a veteran infront of me and I got my last revive for daily!

Cruise around the low-level zones and you can revive NPCs scattered all over the different areas.

Reviving allies = dead NPCs and dead real players

dead NPCs are very easy to find!

Found my own answer. Next month it will award Laurels. Forget finding 20 more JP's.

Got done the monthly last night, only to get no laurels! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

The laurel vendor I found is in LA, at the south, near where all the dungeon vendors are. He has a laurel icon over his head.

You can purchase ascended rings/amulets/infusions with 30/35 laurels.

Can those ascended laurel items be upgraded to upgraded ascended items in the mystic forge? I don't know.

Some of the infusions are non-fractals infusions: they don't have agony resistance, instead they are +MF, +Gold Find, +Karma... which is excellent and more open world focused!

Yeah I found the laurel vendor. I won't complete the Monthly incase I need to find JP's next month. I will say the JP's are pretty unique. Lots of hidden gems in the game.

the JPs I had already discovered before this month... when I returned to them I got credit for "finding" them.

you could have already found them, you just need to revisit them

F1 + Crit

very nyoce!

i don't bother trying to "finish" people off anymore

i continue to DPS then while they are down, till dead

if you try to finish them, the finish attempt does no damage, and often they can knock you down during the attempt... sometimes getting up

my fractals are at 6 now, last night in my daily run I got 1 exotic, 2 rares, 1 onyx lodestone, 2 cores... i can already see the loot getting better

the exotic was account bound so I salvaged it with a BLTP salvage kit

2 nites ago I linked to cutler what dropped from the BIG BOSS chest from fractals for me

it was like a loot pinyata

about 5-6 rare mats and gear

fractals big boss chests can drop lodestones and exotics

if you get lucky you get like 10g+ from 1 chest

BIG BOSS = Jade Maw, at the end of each even level fractals

FYI I read last night dungeons are going to be re-vamped and adjusted

no more hyper rezzing at waypoint and running back to group fight/boss fight if you die

and mobs/bosses are going to be adjusted

I was also informed by doing some reading that even though I can run a higher lever fractal (higher than my personal level), I won't get loot that's up to that level of fractal which I'm running. Good experience gain though by running higher levels, get an idea of what to expect.

Monday
Ran Fractals 8
Personal level 3
After completion personal level now 4

Tuesday
Ran Fractals 8
Personal level 4
After completion personal level now 5

Wednesday
Ran Fractals 8
Personal level 5
After completion personal level now 6

my fractals loot, is always at my own personal level, since the level being run is above me.

however, I am accomplishing 2 things. By running a higher, even fractal, i get the daily done, and I am increasing my own level.

there is absolutely no reason to run fractals on odd, or at your own level

I am getting daily done, and increasing every night

why am I not doing fractals 10 yet?

because 8 is still above my level, and 8 has no agony

agony begins at 10 (also at fractals 10, ascended gear like rings begin to drop)

no need to do that yet since I am well below 8

Laurels are ACCOUNT bound, not soulbound

Completed fractals 10 last night, where agony begins

Boss mechanics are slightly different for each boss, and additionally agony is not what I expected.

Bosses have additional attacks that cause agony damage, which cream you for like 80% of your health, and you are lucky to live thru it

it's not just a debuff that slowly ticks like I initially thought

Mobs also do different attacks that make certain jumping areas very difficult

Got 10g by completing fractals 10 last night, better loot visible already

I had a great deal of fun in WvWvW this weekend. Our server made these giant golems and pushed through the castle in the Eternal BG. Freakin' epic. We tore down the gates. Rushed the the castle while hundreds were inside trying to hold us out. We steam rolled and got in but at the last second Sea of Sorrows swarmed in and stole the castle. I was just in awe of the massive battle. Computer was about to blow up with all the people that was in there. Had to turn my graphics to low. Time to upgrade!!!

In WvW about a month ago we downed some Event boss in WvW.

He dropped alpha siege golem for me.

I then used it, and became a giant siege robot

I literally had about 50 players following me around, giving me speed boosts and portals to get me from castle to castle to attack

it was epic! the game is literally so large and so much to it there isn't enough time

still haven't touched sPvP

WvW is an entire separate game in its own

WvW needs some epic skins, and I would play it more
