Now that my thief, Runa Olafsdottir, is level 80 in “Guild Wars 2″ (my third character in the game to reach that point), I’ve been working on gearing her up with Exotic weapons and armor. It’s true that I actually have a decent stockpile of gold saved up, however, I didn’t want to completely drain that yet. For the gear Runa needs, which favors condition damage as a primary stat, I could either get it from one of two dungeons (via tokens from Explorable Mode) or through purchasing it on the Auction House. I opted to do so from running Citadel of Flame because doing so is at least decently fun, relatively fast for each path, and nets a decent amount of gold each time around.
Anyway, after hitting it pretty hard on Sunday and yesterday, I had enough tokens to buy three pieces of armor. While looking through the armors that were available at the merchant in Lion’s Arch, I was advised to be careful that I picked the correct thing. So, I scrolled up to make sure that what I had selected (the medium armor called “Shaman”) was what I needed, and after being distracted I scrolled back down, selected the pieces I thought were what I had before, and bought them. I then tried to transmute the pieces with the armor that had looks that I liked…
…Only to find out that I had indeed, in trying to be careful, made the mistake of picking up the wrong pieces! >.<
So, that was 540 tokens worth of gear that was completely wasted and cannot be recovered.
Well, maybe that’s not totally true. I did salvage it and got about 3 gold worth of materials out of it that I used to pick up a second Exotic pistol, but even so, that still doesn’t make up for the time running the dungeon.
Still, after hearing about a friend who accidentally salvaged a Legendary precursor item worth over 200 gold, I don’t feel quite as bad about it, but it still sucks and ultimately waned my interest yesterday evening in running the dungeon again.
Oh well, hopefully I’ll pick back up with that soon and finally get Runa geared up.
