GW2 recipe creation system is a joke. It will be so shortlived before being plastered all over the internet making the whole "difference" between wow crafting and gw2 crafting minimal.

At least they are trying (as with everything in the game) to add some innovation.

And I had a thought. What if the recipes were randomly generated within certain perimeters for every new character you create? For instance, to make "Armor piece X" on one character it takes materials "A, B and C", but then for another character it takes, "A, C and F"???

Obviously keeping the materials and items practical. Like instead of "Iron" to make this Sword here, it's Steel. Or instead of Ashwood to make this wand, it's 3 pieces of Spruce???

Like that. That way every character will have to rediscover for that particular "alt" what the recipes are.

Just an idea.

Gay marriage in video games.

Still don't know why this is a big issue. Only so many people RP these days anyways.

Anyone know any gay characters from any of the Star Wars movies? I don't remember seeing any.

People worry about gay relationships is Star Wars?

Don't understand it myself since Star Wars has far greater 'problems'

Beatility - Chewie and Han. (What happens on the Kessel Run stays on the Kessel Run)

Incest - Luke and Leia

Pedophila - Amidala and Anakin (Amidala was grooming him from a young age)

Gay - C3PO and R2 (The driod love that needed no words)

I don't see any problem with allowing SWTOR relationships of any sort. In a universe of people from diverse backgrounds such as aquatic, eyeless, with or without tenticles, giant slugs with a fetish for slave girls, blue skinned, green skinned, skinless who cares what sex everyone is. As long as Tab A goes into Slot B, C or D and both (or more) are happy with it, let loose.

@real65rcncom because the movies showed every aspect of every culture in the whole entire Star Wars universe. We only saw Padme give birth so she must have been the only entity that gives live birth.

It's not just the lack of 'same sex' relationships in SWTOR that's irritating people, there's also the fact that getting into ANY romantic relationship at all gives you 'Dark Side' points. To me, both things are just stupid.

about the second

love means attatchment, attatchment means fear of losing it, losing it means anger. All of them lead to the Dark Side.

the Jedi of the Prequel Era are not only forbidden to have romantic attachments; they are forbidden to have familial ones. Force-sensitive children are taken from their families at a young age and brought up in the Jedi Temple, without much or any connection with their biological relatives. They are loyal and devoted to the Jedi Order because they have no other family..

Arguing about this shows you have no idea on the IP and you lack something worth being called an opinion.

@Fabius Bile I know very well the various dumb ideas Lucas put into his prequel lore, and just because Lucas thought it was a great idea doesn't make the concepts of making 'love' into a character flaw/sin for a Jedi any less stupid, sorry.

Actually, Lucas gets many cinematic traditions wrong and this is part of it; he's basically dug himself into this hole.

While it is great to be emotionally detached and have a level-head, having no family, like a Mother and Father, tends to be bad. Especially Jedis need the trait of compassion. It was this that Luke brought forth in dealing with Vader that ultimately redeemed him. Another Jedi probably would have just killed him.

@acidfwd Netherlands. Cause we're all in same-sex marriages over here, happily smoking our medicinal marihuana in our windmills while tending to our tulips.

Now where are my wooden shoes? Gotta run out to the coffee shop to fill my prescription.

@Lenn I am sure he said Netherwoods. Well, it would be awesome if he referred to an in-game zone of flat lands with gay marriages, cannabis fields and windmills.

Why do liberals insist on forcing real life social issues on a fantasy sci fi video game? It has no context in the Star Wars world.
