Guild Wars 2

guildwars2-07-1600x1200It’s kinda funny; I have been complaining about the Dilex rate until the Phoenix Pack dropped it to a reasonable level. Hurriedly I liquidated the dilithium reserves on every single one of my toons, which left me with more Zen than I know what to do with. At the same time, for over two weeks straight I have been running dailies on each of my toons to rebuild their dilithium pool… which takes over 2.5 hours of doing nothing but clicking at various screens.

I had fully intended to use some, if not all of the Science ships that I got on Black Friday, as someone’s endgame ship.

Last night the Phoenix Prize Packs came into effect. In effective it’s a lockbox that you buy with dilithium, which gives a chance for players to pick up old event or discontinued items. I’ve included the writeup below:

T6 Escorts Comparisons

I.K.S. General Thade Bandar-log

Whew! I pretty much blew my entire Zen reserve this Black Friday, and got myself a couple of new toys. Yes I got the brand spanking new T6 Science ship bundle, but no, today I want to discuss the other bundle I got, namely the T6 Escort (Defiant) bundle. I realize it’s old news now, but having flown all three T6 escorts over the weekend, I can finally offer an informed review.
