    Heya, I was wondering where the Q7 weapons dropped back in the day?

    found a thread in which was mentioned, that q7 armor 15 shields drop from lvl 15-18 enemies nowadays, was that the lvl range for q7 max items back then?

    Also why did Axes and Hammers drop in Q7 but Bows for example didnt? And why do only swords, shields and foci still drop in q8, when the reason for the nerf was pvp balancing?

    And as the last question:

    which axe and hammer skins did actually drop in q7? i didnt see many even in high end collections of you.

    super excited to get some answers on those questions x)

    Hey, id like to sell some of the Items i gathered over the years.

    Staves:



    s2: 1a

    s7: 1a

    s26: 1a


    Scepters:


    Z 20: 20e


    Foci:


    F3: 1a

    F12: 1a

    F17: 1a


    Shields:


    SH 13: 125e

    SH 22: 25e

    SH 10: 2a

    Material Weapons:


    M14: 40e

    Inscr: (also q8 inscr stuff in there)



    I6: 20e

    OS Q8 :


    To bid just type the Weapontype and the number of the picture. F.e. second row of Staves 3rd item would be "Staff 6". (I hope it gets displayed in the same order on every screen.

    i didnt say it dropped in 2016, i said it popped up. obviously the thread i just posted states it was in the hands of a few traders before. yet it states it was one of a kind until then and you fail to bring any facts or arguments else than trying to defame me :P shows a bit , that you are out of arguments.

    in 2016 a q8 colossal scimitar was sold on this platform, quoted from a few high end traders to be 1 of a kind, so i guess "colossal scimitarS" were possible to drop in 2007, yes, but actually didnt drop in masses like you propose :P

    also q8 diamond aegises were stated to be "possible drops" but not actually dropped yet in a thread i recently read. i can try to find those 2 threads if you want.

    i'm sure you are speaking out of your ass at this point, req8 colossal scimmys popped up on the regular pre 2008-9, req8 dead swords were also one of the very common req8s that dropped from that era.


    I'm not sure if you even played during that time.

    this q8 colossal scimitar was called 1 of a kind passed through several high end collectors and approved by the communtiy aswell, idk what you are on about. you got any facts about your "q8 colossals popped in a regular basis" or are you just caping?


    and san i clearly said

    "q8 colossal scimitars and q8 diamond aegises werent present pre 2016 i think, where the first cs got thrown up .

    even if they arent unique, looking at the possible drop chance over 16 years or smth, the drop rate has to be somewhat small - even with the possibility to bot them."

    so yes i said they arent unique or anything, but shall show that there are still items that are quite rare eventhough still dropping. And i am pretty certain, that in a discussion with a few of our high end farmers and collectors, we could figure out a few items that are theoretically possibly to drop and still didnt do that.

    q8 colossal scimitars were present when HM was introduced in NF. this was 2007.

    req8 diamond aegis's also dropped along time ago.

    so first you suggest to remove bots, and then you come up with a symptom fix, which just spread the desease to other body parts? doa botting was a problem the last 2 years, but botting was a problem since the beginning of gw, drastically increasing in 2012 when they stopped caring. botters will find other ways to make money again. still the whole pcon market is supplied by botters

    even if they arent unique, looking at the possible drop chance over 16 years or smth, the drop rate has to be somewhat small - even with the possibility to bot them.

    there is literally no way to get rid of the botters. even in games where they actually invest money into fixing that issue this problem exists in a similar intensity.

    botters will just keep buying new accs, as people will keep rmt ing

    Every single game is virtual nonsense your not making any sense in your argument, you do realize Anet would never allow such thing to happen as long the game doesn't lose them money.

    As soon as they make everything obtainable then nobody WILL actually care and the game will be actually be sent to the graveyard permanently.

    Agreed.. what would be the incentive or reward if they just allowed everything to be obtainable naturally through the game? I get some players play to have to fun and don’t care about rare minis/weapons. But there is a large majority of players who strive for that reward. The hunt to find that missing weapon for their collection or saving up several years to finally get that rare mini they have always wanted. There would be a lot of upset players if they just allowed rare minis and pre nerfed weapons to be naturally obtainable again. Steven, if you’re reading this, please don’t do this lol 😭

    today there still are possible item drops, that never actually did drop cuz the chance of them dropping is insanely low. they could implement the possibility and make sure the drop rate is extremely low and more important its not botable (which is possible to do)

    My idea would be rotating builds for the foes just like in the codex arena f.e.

    this would optimaly kill most bots, while providing the players new difficulties to play against etc.

    would need some optimization and cant be fully random so builds will have at least a bit of synergy


    also this could lead to some fun developer - player interaction like back in the days when buildcontests for ha/gvg heroes were a thing

    I have no problem with you getting the title on that way. Im having a problem with you measuring with 2 different scales.

    So it’s reasonable that noobs like you can farm a title in a dead game

    Yes, because this is the only remaining legitimate way to do this.

    While it’s unreasonable that someone farms your ass with an alt ?

    Yes, because ganking is considered match-fixing i.e., cheating, and therefore illegitimate. Botting is also considered cheating.

    Hopefully me spelling it out for you helps you now to understand?

    but how are you earning your title legitimatly by your own definition, when you obviously couldnt even reach r6 without bots being active, which are the definition of cheating?

    i mean ofc you arent botting, but you are abusing a system, that is ran by bots, which makes you part of the problem, no?

    As the title states - who stands behind those new accs on legacy that sell so many rare prenerf items?

    known ppl that wanna stay unkown, ppl that come back to the game after a long break (unlikely since it just began a few months ago) or even ppl that got a hold by those items through acc hacking via game support?

    and still nobody is talking about solos.

    I didnt actually mention it in the post but my frustrations were with how open ppl were about botting or rmt even though they were in the leaderboards. Openly posting about rmt, or their main accounts with bots running in the background(while talking about the ease of monitoring bots), or even them showing the programs themselves whenever they had problems.

    I had a random sudden change of heart so it doesn't bother me as much anymore. also I met this quirky player named kiki but probs unrelated.

    I can understand this, though i personally just go with it and enjoy the game in a way i still can, which is playing the game more casual, alone or with casual people that dont need consumables and other stuff. Sucks, but you cant change it nowadays.
