ohhhh will I finally be able to finish up my spinal blades without grinding mining with clockwork pick like a mad man?

Park an alt, or any characters you don’t really play, at the chest in the Not so Secret jump puzzle.
Everyday open the chest and get blade shards.
That’s how I did it.

I…didn’t even think of that. I’m gonna do that, thanks for the golden tip. ๐Ÿ™‚ I now want a red Spinal Blade, got a blue already….

Heh, wish I could sell mine. I’ve got just over a stack of spare Blade Shards. I’ve already crafted the Static Spinal Backpiece, so I don’t need any more.

You can get sprockets also from any places you face an aetherblade: not so secret JP, middle part of EOTM, Aetherblade Fractal and Captain Mai Trin Boss Fractal and Watchwork Sprocket in your home stance.

Not so secret gives 2 blade shards per day per character. Sprocket Generator* at your home stance gives 0-3 per day.

Not so Secret gives a Minimum of 2 per day, OK it’s mostly 2 per day, but up to 14 a day per character.

Blades/Shards are easy enough to get. As people have said JP chest, or use the mining pick to get sprockets and convert to blades. Its the 3 colored cores that are insanely expensive if you want to make the colored/ascended back items.

its just random events like in gw1 when they where releasing eye of the north there was MAJOR tremors in certain areas. so it will be like that maybe some ground shakes some enemies that are not usually stuff like that

Sugarsplatter says its customizable, of course it can only mean that the stats could be picked form a pool , but maybe its dieable in some layers, ahve you tried? sorry for bothering but im at job and cant access GW2 client ๐Ÿ™

Then dont know what do they mean by “Customizable Backpieces” since i dont think they would sell a Exotic/Ascended piece of gear on the cash Shop and let it be able to select it stats. but wel.. iven if its not dyeable….. INSTABUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I tried too. The art pic + what it actually looks like is mighty deceiving. Unless they haven’t added the actual dye panels because it would require more coding they haven’t finished yet. But that’s just me grasping at straws.

I looked at the datamine info for these wings and it says it’s customizable. I look at this image then the one for the cash shop and they are different colors. First dyeable back piece? Gosh I really hope so! I’d buy it in an instant!!!

That backpiece is really awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope we will see it soon in sales, along with other new items (butterfly backpacks, wyvern/tiger minies etc..)

1030380_0316 Customize your backpack!

Will they finally bring back the old engineer kit-backpacks back as obtainable backpieces, like they promised?

Anet you promised!

If back pieces are customisable and minion logic has been fixed (plus ogre wars glitches) I’ll feel that the lack of content has been worth it. Glad I saw these wings before I bought the white wings. I think they suit zodiac better.

I suspect it might be a new weapon set in Verdant Brink. Something the Pact is forced to scavenge together from scrap after the destruction of the Pact Fleet. If my guess is right, it won’t be out till HoT.

Yeah something like this. I can confirm that I found a makeshift dagger in the Beta, so I would assume it’s new skins associated with HoT.

man i totally forgot about these. but they actually made a gemstore banner for these new wings, so they might release them.

it would be cool if they are somehow reincorporating season one into the game so we can actually play it to get achievements missed.
