    It’s funny to see the current prices for the weapon skins being based on how awesome the weapon looks.

    You can’t even compare the awesomeness of the Greatsword skin to the rifle skin, which makes me sad as I play a rifle primary Engineer a lot.

    I don’t know why all the skins don’t look so uber awesome as a few of the other ones.

      Supply and demand? Of course, the price will be based on how awesome the weapon looks. That said, i agree with you totally, they should make all skin equally awesome looking =)

  • TSLlol

    hahah that’s my sexy blonde mesmer with the Greatsaw! 😀 ingamename Heartbeats :3

    • Ham

      and I should care why?

  • There is a mystic forge recipe that uses 250 candy corn and 25 each of Nougat Centers, Plastic Fangs and Chattering Skulls. Not sure yet what it produces.

    • it makes the recipe for greater/superior sigil of the night or greater/superior runes of the mad king (random which one you get). The sigil is required to craft the permanent version of the 3 temporary weapons you can buy for 150 candy corns

      When I did it, I got the recipe for major sigil of the night, waste of money 🙁

      I get it, it makes your character look unique and cool to have exclusive items, while also signifying how long someone’s been playing the game. It also probably drives burst sales.
