comment What determines WvW river drake disposition?
Update on things that DON'T affect them, as I may have previously thought: the nearby "middle lake" sentry, and nearby southern tower.

comment Does Guild Wars 2 have micro-transactions that give competitive advantages?
Excellent post. I am not certain, however, that the +5% damage and damage reduction are active vs. players in WvW. It's pretty hard to test, but I had heard (and can find no answer on) that they only work vs. monsters. That is the description of the item. It would certainly work on objective NPCs, though, so that could be a minor "advantage".

comment Does Guild Wars 2 have micro-transactions that give competitive advantages?
This answer was accepted within two hours of the question being asked. Brian's done a significantly better job of explaining the lack of p2w in GW2 in his answer, for those of you reading this in the future.

comment How can you get your character to stop speaking?
Just want to say I'm oddly weirded out by referring to a character as "it".

comment Which sword skin is this?
I know the devs don't want us to inspect gear for stats, but I would like an inspect gear feature some day for situations like this.

comment Can I attack a World Boss, leave the area and still get a reward?
A related side note: some events require you to achieve over bronze level for the reward. I learned that as I lazily played my thief in the post-event after killing Risen Priest of Melandru; no chest for me.

A brief search would have given you your answer.

comment What's the point of non-Agony Resistance infusions?
Well-said. As a necromancer, vitality matters more than other classes because our Life Force pool is increased by vitality. Who knows how many times I've been running from a battle with 250 health left? :} And while +30 power may not sound like much, remember you also crit off that power, so it is worth something in the end.

comment Why can't I activate Steam Community ingame?
This did not work for me or my friend. Restarted Origin etc. Will just add the game as "DA:I No In-Game Blame Origin" :P

comment Is there a compelling reason to level crafting in GW2 if my character is already L80?
To echo the answer to an unasked question: indeed ascended gear is worth it. We have some lovely answers here. gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/159714/…

comment How to find enemy health in memory?
I'm very certain it's against the ToS as it can give you an advantage. I'd say forget the notion entirely, or health bars won't matter once your account is terminated.

comment How do I deal with Warrior stuns?
Seconding the "PS" - it's so vital to try out a few classes. I used to be confused by mesmers until I played one. I had no idea engineers had tool belts to just spamspamspam with. Invisible engineers, rangers, high-evade builds, they all become palpable.

comment What does GOAT or 'GOATing' mean?
In my long legacy of online gaming, and extensive time in GW/GW2 PvP, I don't believe I've once heard "goating". I know that "mountain goating" is used often in GW2, it means to scale terrain that the developers do not intend to be walkable.

comment Statistic difference between ascended and legendary?
Your aversion to the wiki is likely unwarranted, it's a very reliable resource. Legendary weapons are pretty important to GW2 and you're not going to find misinformation on the Legendary Weapon page. (at least, it won't be there for long :}) I suppose you got what you wanted in the end with Amos's superior answer, though.

comment Is ascended gear worth the effort?
+1 because many people forget about the armor values on ascended armor. I believe these defense points are equivalent to getting 1 toughness per defense.

comment What's the easiest or cheapest Ascended backpiece?
Consider the path of Mawdrey... I think you'll end up spending close (shy of 50g?) to the cost of others unless you want to farm fractals for quite some time. You'll grow a cool plant that eats bloodstone.
