Ya, other than filling out that slot on the character screen for equipping a legendary, I don't see the need for one.. especially with those needs.. with all that stuff, I'd say make a legendary at least double the dps and stats of standard lvl 80 exotic.

No, they are literally *no* better than exotics in terms of stats (assuming the info out there is correct). They are purely visual.

The big rocks left in my path:

1. It's going to take a LOT more money than I'd originally anticipated; this is primarily because it's very clear that farming some of these materials is going to be impossible. The lodestones in particular represent a few hundred hours of a few hundred gold whichever way you look at it.

2. I've made absolutely zero progress on the legendary precursor front. I'm secretly hoping that ANet adds more ways to acquire these items without so much luck being involved. My guess is that it's going to be the best option to throw whatever weapons I happen upon into the forge in hopes of getting ANY precursor to sell for money--but the most likely scenario is that I'll need to use money to buy the precursor as well.

3. Mystic coins are going to be another thing I'll have to buy since the absolute fastest rate they can be acquired by any individual is 50 / month.

4. Hardened Leather seems to be incredibly rare--I need to figure out how to farm this resource. I figure leatherworkers must have a better way than I'm currently using.

5. I still have to get world completion. I'm really crossing my fingers--stats look good this week that JQ will take the green side next week in WvW which will let me get my last POI. Once I have that, it's just a matter of time invested in doing the WvW jumping puzzles to get the remaining badges. Since I could finish this any time by diving in head-first with 5 toons and getting a minimum of 20 per day, I'm not pushing it since having it now won't really get me any closer to having the legendary.

I honestly couldn't tell you; and, unless you aren't planning on playing the game anymore and you're just looking to unload a large stockpile of gold that you'll never use, I wouldn't even consider taking that much from someone. It's multiple hundreds of gold.

Yea the worst part of the legendary is the precursors. The ones Nalty and I are looking at, to buy would be a min of 600+ gold. The luck factor in getting the pre-cursors are just painful.

I was smart, and i picked stuff up early ( abliet i doubt theres a chance i have your precusors)

As for rejoining Gw2, its just somewhat boring . Im at a loss for what to do, since everythings a bit streamlined to end game. That and No 1 i know plays (and you guys are all 80 qq) .

Been fiddling around mmos for the last week trying to find a sense again.
(that and all the class's ive played on gw2 seem somewhat boring).

Im more for the venturing out and finding random things/ puzzles - but most of the Jqs seem easy cept the holiday ones.
