So this is potentially a bit problematic. Once upon a time, ArenaNet prided itself on taking the ‚??end‚?? out of endgame (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/09/15/arenanet-guild-wars-2-takes-the-end-out-of-endgame/) in Guild Wars 2. And admittedly, it‚??s not like Tyria‚??s baddest beasties and best quests are suddenly making a beeline for the back of the bus. But ArenaNet is moving full-steam ahead with that oh-so-restrictive of popular MMO practices: gear checking. Put simply, if your stuff‚??s not up to snuff, the upcoming Fractals of the Mists dungeon (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/11/13/absolutely-crabulous-guild-wars-2s-lost-shores-event/) will eventually chew you up and spit you out. The solution? A brand new ‚??Ascended‚?? gear tier that‚??ll allow for special upgrades that mitigate progress-slowing (and in tougher cases, halting) debuffs.
