GW2 Academy

“I’m used to Lotro cosmetics: have equipped gear but display cosmetic gear. Can I do that in GW2? How do I change the color of the armour? Say I have the gear all set and nice looking. Then I get to lvl47 and get a nice new armour piece and swap it in. Do I loose all the coloring I applied to the old piece?”

Tapkoh commented on Episode 8:

“I said this in the chat, but that’s obviously not recorded. I stand by my claim that Factions is the best campaign to start in if you’re new to the game or in other words, it’s the most noob friendly. I didn’t say it was the best campaign, which is probably where the “disagreement” actually comes from. In fact, there is a large section of it (Kaineng City) that I just hate. It’s a pain to navigate and practically everything is small corridors and close quarters, so one good AoE (especially in HM) can easily wipe out your entire party.”
