Has the death of Nirvana runs affected you ?

Since NW came out I notice people have completely stop doing them, it's so strange being 2x and all, yet not seeing any WC spam for Casters and Aps Nivy teams on my server. Even more strange is that Raging Tide city no longer has Cat shops near the pathway to the elder.

Honestly it was one of those instances I was looking forward to doing and thanks to my guild they've agreed to run one so I could see what it's like...I feel so pitied.


But seriously how many of you have been really affected out there in the general player base by the lack of or no Nivy runs?

    Yes it have had a positive affect on my gameplan and those around me. Now the 2x is more fun for everyone and we can all enjoy the various aspects of the game fully. I think it was an excellent move by PWI that has made the game better for everyone playing.

    It affected me in the way that I am now camping in TT 3-x and 2-3 and meanwhile collecting the sacred Mothers Auras for the full g16 lunar set for my seeker alt...and oh well I actually do more lunar just for essences and badges and ofc some mats. I'm actually pretty happy that nirvana is dead. It was boring as hell (:

    Got at least one alt of any class above level 100.
    All decently geared and skilled (: .
    And the most important thing is: They are all fun to play ^.^ .

    Honestly I`m happy nirvana is dead, no one will even bother dragging me there anymore, only thing I hate is, it made my 400m + weapon look cheap and pretty much mainstream now that you can get g16 for under 150m (if you pay for manufacturing).

    Both positive and negative.

    Positive in that I find myself doing a lot of other things in game I didn't do quite as much. TT's, full Lunars, archo assault events, and probably WS sooner or later.

    Negative in that the game is very short on content. We have a handful of viable instances that you can join/find easily with a wc squad when you're bored. Killing Nirvana just reduced that number by 1, and while NW is awesome, it's not accessible to everyone and has a limited lifespan once the market is saturated by enough tokens. The loss of delta coin on top makes this even worse. Vana may be boring once you spam it too much, but it was still another content option.

    if you enjoyed it and looked forwards to it, its still open, go for it.

    nobody really looked forward to nirvana, or liked doing it though, they just liked the money you could make there.

    It have some pros and cons aswell

    Pro :
    If i asked someone to do something together during x2 i often heard, no im busy farming nirvana. Thats gone! Also i dont have to feel bad if i forget to get my daily keys. In fact i dont bother getting them anymore.

    Cons:
    If you not doing any kind of PvP Activity the game leak content that keep you busy. You can rush trough your BH, AEU and GBQ , maybe also PV in a really short time and after that you have no instance worth running besides TT. Thats kinda sad but thats not only a nirvana problem.

    I would love more content and dungeons to explore, where you can grab something valueable. Content, tailored to the current equipment level! Content that need a full 10 man party with mixed class to survive.
    I hate Room 38

    I actually really did enjoy Caster, and didn't run it for money.

    The only difference it has made for me is that instead of spending half the day in Caster I spend it in TT, because now I have to buy most of my Nirv mats. And TT is more boring.

    AMAZING suggestion!!! I'd go back in if this were the case.

    I guess I was a little sad... as I made and geared an alt wizard just for doing casters... but in reality.. it has been SO NICE doing something other than casters this 2x- I've done warsongs and FCs- and just regular farming. Honestly, the obsession with doing nirvana was annoying, now we can focus on other parts of the game :)

    The moment nirvana died was the moment the amount of incoming coins increased. WS/Lunar g16 molds make-sell market started up with a BANG, better geared characters instead of struggling a whole x2 to barely farm 250 raps for a g15 weapon and whatnot.b:victory

    Nation Wars or make-sell G16 molds for people are the top 2. TT mat prices have also risen on my server.

    Yeah , I am glad that nirvy is not so profitable now, but they should maybe make it where it is atleast worth doing so as to make a decnt income, even if it doesn't make you rich anymore. Maybe enact a permanet triple drop in there or something. No reason to let the area go to total waste

    Shouldn't be long untill Nw stuff is near worthless, and badges farming is headed there too at some point. I'd give it maybe 6 months to reach a saturation point.

    If people can't farm big amounts of coin maybe prices will fall on stuff as the supply and demand works itself out.

    Ask faction mates or friends to take you on 1 of their 99 keys runs.

    maybe in addition to adding vile bosses, they could have either essences at the end or like... molds maybe. Just something to make it actually worth it...

    Thought a bit about this myself, yes there are Pro's and Con's to NV becoming redundant overnight thanks to NW. But No instance should just be left to gather dust, it was put there to be used, as someone suggested already, putting in Vile Bosses for Badges might be a good idea. But how about giving some kind of EXP reward? Not a pitiful amount like 100k. But a substantial amount like 550k total at the end of the instance or like 200k Per vile boss + a badge? I'd certainly go back into NV for the Extra exp. Provided it wasn't Restricted by the community for R9/r or +10 5.0 3rd cast.... b:scorn

    The biggest negative effect of the fact people don't run nirvana now is that it makes it harder for barbs to build amber shards.

    Nirvana was the only instnace that had any chance of gaining an amber by opening a box to gain an amber.

    Tons of melee class's have drakeflames in their weapons, tons of mag class's have Iceborn in their weapons. Must be nice to have the gem needed come from a pack. Barb is the only class that can use amber gems and yet we were forgotten in packs and there is no instance outside nirvana that drops what we needs.

    It is too bad Nirv is dead.. the items from any box impacts no class the way it does a barb.

    It brought tons of enjoyment back into the game for me. I was off in gw land doing WvW but since I dont have to farm stale PvE instances 24/7 to advance my gears anymore, there's fun to be had again.

    PvP adds variability to any game, and the relatively random nature of NW teams is good enough for me. The rewards are pretty amazing too, so NWs has essentially replaced TWs as my favorite feature of PW.

    Doesn't NW make you half as much as that being your R9 and all?

    And why does a barb need ambers? I thought barbarians either used citrines or garnets.
