  • I'm surprised there hasn't been any horror story of...


    "The first character i deleted after they added equip pouches i totally forgot to check their equip pouch before i deleted them and..."



    I'm sure someone did it, now admit it, and share your pain ;(:D

  • I had a q8 dead bow drop and wanted to sell it at LA.

    A guy asked me to drop it on the ground which I did because I didn't know about teleports and such at the time.

    He took my bow and left, ah yea good ol bow

    Same happened to me. I bought my first “ Big “ item to flip. It was a Q9 obby edge. He wanted me to drop it so he could screen shot it and see if that was what his friend was looking for. Worst feeling ever.

  • At the beginning of GWs proph I played with my sister in pre she chose and ele I wanted to be a monk but all the hair options were horrible so I let her convince me to be a necro. Pre necro is not as strong as ele so I deleted it and made a ranger. I kept deleting characters because I thought everything was bad compared to ele.


    I gave away all of my gold ids for years because other people were working on the title and I wasn't.


    I did runs to droks and through a lot of dungeons for no charge because I figured everyone needed them and couldn't afford them. (I still have trouble valuing my time)


    I have tucked weapons away on pvp only characters heros and forgotten about them then deleted the character.


    I have stood in meteor shower more times then I am comfortable admitting.


    Before legendary defender of ascalon was a thing I took a level 16 ranger out of pre. I also took a level 18 monk out of pre after that title got put in before I ever got it on any character.

  • I don't consider this a noob moment but a mistake, but when ArenaNet created the costumes I bought the Vale Wraith, I put it in my Warrior and I completed the Factions campaign receiving a lot more damage than expected. It wasn't until I arrived at Raisu Palace that I realized I was playing without armor and only with the costume, for some reason that I don't remember I left the armor in the storage the day I bought the costume and I never checked the bag again.

  • I was about 4 months into the game and thought I knew everything about everything. I was making a nice little income selling mini pets. One late night in LA I was selling a lich. I remember one guy offering me a purple crys sword for the pet. To which I proceeded to let him know that I was smarter than that. That no purple weapon was wirth more than my gold mini pet. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    But that's very common, it's not your fault. In the past no one knew the revaluation that these things would have in the future, or that ArenaNet would make certain changes screwing the drop table of certain items. Look what happened to the Denravi Weapons, a bunch of useless items that except the sword no one wanted, and today, only because they were removed from the game, people is trying to scam and taking advantage selling them for ridiculous prices (or with the Jade Wind Orbs, or like a hundred more examples). It's like if tomorrow ArenaNet removes another item from a crafter lost in the game that nobody remembers, although the item were literally an useless shit that no one would carry around while playing, it doesn't matter, that useless shit itself would happen to be worth a fortune since that moment.

  • Bought celestial pig minis in bulk as the price was rising, came back to the game to find out they are given away for free every year... Ouch

    ah fck yeah back then 2008 u could have traded 5 normal pigs for a celestial pig. i also remember when they raised in price nearly over night.


    but imagine people also did the following :


    - the first e blade ever dropped and openly sold was q9 : if i recap completly it had offers of 2x vizu and ~1000 ectos wich was like insane back then. vizu was even rarer and more wanted then Panda.

    soon after the prices dropped to a couple hundred ectos cause UW sc was super easy.


    if he kept the e blade at least its worth more then 2x vizu and 1000e nowaways XD



    Now comes the other part with vizus. u lost quite investment on cele pigs. but imagine u invested in vizus. uuuf. trading like mutiple pandas into vizus. then come back to the game thinking u are like super rich and now u can barely effort an obsi armor. damn ^^


    Also some personal OOPSIES:

    1. I also fell for the shadow step trick (didnt knew about Ebon Escape) i even checked that he didnt had assasin class - my precious q9 +5en OS zodi axe. was a big hit for me back then. never told someone cause i was so ashamed :(

    2. I owned and sold the first ever q8/16 gold enamled shield on the market back then on WARTOWER. sold it for 275e or 475e i cant recap for sure. it was quite somemoney back then, still not a good trade from modern perspective ^^

    3. Sold a q7 duo modded plagueborn focus for 30 platin cause i thought the mods are not playable xD i for sure know it was q7 souldreaping and duo max mods. mods where not caster mods so i thought its trash ^^

    I believe we've all made bad changes at times. I remember selling a q8 insc FDS to nik for 50e or so in Kamadan (i think it was blue) and a few days later someone whispered to me ingame me saying that he had resold it here for more than double and I thought "mdfk!" xD but I don't care shit happens.
