WvW items


One time account purchases

  • One-time account purchases that contain everything you’ll need to get your feet wet in each of the eight crafting disciplines.
  • Each kit will feature a small amount of common crafting mats and fine crafting materials, enough to get you to ~ 50 in that crafting discipline.

    A month’s worth of dailies for amulets is really disappointing…means those of us with alts are going to have to wait AGES to get all our characters properly geared (unless we want to buy + upgrade triforges)

    • Don’t forget, Monthlies give you 10 laurels

      • Pessimissed

        Yeah, you can get over 40 Laurels if you play for the whole month, so it wont take that long, as you only need 30. It would take maybe 2.5 months to get an amulet and two rings, and seeing as dailies take no time at all, and after doing a month of dailies, the monthly should be done, I don’t know why you are complaining.

  • ayimera

    Curious about the class gear – wonder if they have unique skins?

    • we will know in 5 days. Right now everyone only get 1 laurel per day so.

      • Monthlies give you 10 though, someone should be able to finish their monthlies and get them, right?

        • Cat

          You won’t get laurels with Jan’s monthly. Only starting from Feb.

          • Ploopy

            So, not 5 days. Possibly 4 days 🙂

  • Darakna

    Is there any other way to earn Laurel ?
    it takes to much time to get 30 for amulet only…it”s crazy

    • Josh

      You can get the 1 from dailies and 10 for monthly. Only way to get them.

      • Pessimissed

        So far at least. But it ‘is’ the only logical way. Other achievements would make it unfair.

  • Rich

    So… basically, we’re all stuck doing fractals everyday for Rings. Then using gold to build TriForges too. Is it me or did the gear grind just get worse, not better?

    • m

      You don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to do.

      • Rich

        When one considers in the dev’s eye’s, a month of daily’s in WvW or PvE is equal to 10 daily’s in Fractals, you’d feel the pressure to “have” to do Fractals. I feel like Anet’s bastard child for preferring WvW and hating JP’s and Dungeons.

        • Deviija

          I can understand that. As someone that only plays WvW, I feel like we’ve been neglected a lot. I really am looking forward to their upcoming WvW progression updates and assorted WvW things. I hope they can deliver and deliver soon. People may spend hours doing dungeons or PvE, but spending hours doing WvW is just as arduous and down and gritty work as anything else. We should be able to get progression, ascended items, and other such things through that game mode.

  • Hyareil

    Laurel merchants aren’t located only in Lion’s Arch, there is one in each major city 🙂

  • Mr Riddle

    What about the starter kits? Anyone bought them?

  • Paul Herman

    Red Ring of Death… Awesome name for a ring, brings me back to the first Xbox 360 haha

    • CrackleSnaps

      Yeah, takes you all the way back to a few years ago…

    “Ranger box gave 1 Rare Rifle and 1 Rare Medium Leather shoulder piece”. Is this information correct? Rangers can’t use Rifles so why would it give one in the Ranger Gear Box?

    • Yes, someone else brought it and mentioned it on reddit, saying it was odd since rangers can’t use rifles.

  • Aprinz

    Does the mystic binding agent also work core -> lodestone?

    • yes, it will function exactly like bottle of elonian wine
