    I have gold stockpiled since I don’t pay to heal, and I bought the shotgun, but will pass on a 2nd Lucille. Between this, picking up some good gear during Jackpot, and Decimator being unlocked tonight, I suddenly have options on what to upgrade next after having a selection of crap the past month.

    Realistically, the cost to purchase a weapon with gold should be no more than 400 Gold. Anything more than that just steers people to purchase better-valued bundles for a 25% savings vs using gold in the shop.

    Please consider the logic and make the corrections.

    You are implying it's in their interest to provide better options for their customers than spending the money that feeds their business. I hope they don't, since I like this game and want it to stay alive.

    This is an opportunity for f2p players or people who picked up the game late to get weapons they normally would have to pay for (providing they saved up on gold). It can also be used for people who bought bundles with gold in it, and can spend it on some additional weapons.

    I don't see any direct connection between this event and buying gas or healing. Only players in top guilds actually need to do that. The majority of the player base is a lot more casual, but still might spend real money on the game. Keeping top players happy is obviously important for NG too. But it is a separate concern than this event, which isn't targeting top players specifically.

    What I opposed was that Billdinger insinuated NG were irrational for not making these offers better value (using undiscounted gold price) compared to the discounted bundles for the raw gold price. I believe NG already revealed in previous posts here by staff members that the bulk of their income is from weapon bundles, so they should be careful not to lose that. I also don't see why they have to be cheaper, or why we would need/want to buy all of them rather than the ones we know we'll benefit from (or wait until they come back)

    1000 gold is too much for me personally, and I don't oppose to adjusting the prices down. Just disagree with the arguments made.

    Day 3



    Assessment: Chainsaw certainly has niche uses, and can be great when Prowling, but I have purchased one and have never used it. I would pick the Dragon’s Tongue, hands down, in most situations.

    Completely forgot about the Chainsaw. I've updated the top post.
    So far, these predictions seem to work correctly:

    - Mid TIER weapons
    - One day per class so far (no idea what will pop up on day 7).

    So we should be expecting scout, assault and shooter weapons in the next 3 days, likely from the range of Mid tier as per the top post,

    Is the chsinsaw any good?

    It is great vs Freemen and Human enemies in Guild wars... Anything with 2 health bars...
  • WellyLugaWellyLuga Member Posts: 3,046
    Yeah it's unlikely you'll be using it at high level in the challenge but you can get some good damage numbers out of it. Against GW raiders you'll not find a better weapon. It hits twice and crits reduce DR to zero. Chances are it will kill nearly anything in 1 attack.

    The Abraham bundle currently has "Old fashioned assault rifle", but I think it had something named Police assault rifle before? And then there's the golden assault rifle (also in a bundle). AFAIK neither of them have special functionality. Just good traits and "unique" skins. Hopefully they won't offer weapons like this?

    @Paste unlikely, I’m pretty sure we will keep seeing the mid tier with a twist on day 7.

    Day 4 - Spear Gun. My forcast is working well. The first post has been updated for a better readability.

    The next two days we are going to have scout and assault mid tier weapons.

    More specifically, the pattern appears to be weapons that have been available before as rewards from events, campaigns or GW shop.



    Scout - Bayonet Musket

    Assault - Forgot which was event reward item...Dixieland BBQ?

    Hunter - RPG

    I full agree with Musket. Assault - guess it's BBQ, LMG or Jar/Reconnin'. They are all of the same value. Not sure about the RPG since, since we had hunter weapon already on day 1. My gut feel is that on day 7 we will have a twist - more than one weapon probably?

    So what’s the deal with the usefulness of the Spear Gun? As far as I know, the Winter Bow is among the best shooter weapons. Is this a valid assessment?

    The speargun is supremely useful during charge shooter events but that's really the extent of it

    The speargun fires through metalheads, that's it's main viable niche.

    If it was silent it would be in standard use rather than niche... But then we know how noisy those Spears can be.

    Pretty loud, but not as loud as those rapid fire Harpoon Guns.

    Day 5



    I still have an epic one from an event a long time ago and it is useful for low- to mid-level players on some Distance maps but not very useful in the end game.

    As expected. And no surprises tomorrow.

    Right, so the only mystery now is what we will see on the day 7.
    Bundle? Better tier weapons for higher price? Armor?
