I’m not sure what possessed me to log onto GW2 after a month off and plop down half of my gold on a back piece. I’m blaming it on my incessant need to organize and clean up my inventory, which was a mess the last time i logged in. My bank filled with not only fractal currency but row after row of fractal rings that I’ll never do anything with. To be fair, i had all the mats including 250 ectos for the first upgrade so all i had to buy was a second stack of them. Who am i kidding, it was for the shiny, or in this case for the sparkly.
