I have a frustrating and expensive journey ahead of me…
This weekend I finished the tier 3 collection for Ad Infinitum, I should have done this a lot sooner, but I really couldn’t be bothered with the fractals in the state they were in before the Spring 2016 patch.
Since then ANET have updated the dailies I have been doing them a lot more frequently. Fractals became enjoyable again and seemed worth doing, so I started to get back on track with the achievements.
Whilst I am working my way through the challenges, of which some I am not looking forward to, I will need to be collecting the various bits of wood and metal needed for the gifts to convert/infuse inside the relevant fractals. I will then need to get my fractal level of 84 up to 100 so I can open the required level 100 Mai Trin. (I might consider PUGing for an opener) This I am looking forward too!
There is a list of what needs to be done pasted below. I do like to get my teeth into something and to take on a challenge!
It does look like I will again have to put crafting the gifts for moot on hold, as after I have done all of this I will then need to make the required gifts to allow me to make the legendary backpack as I am far from rich.
On another Note I read on Reddit that the new hot legendaries & backpacks do not count towards the Legendary Collector achievement, It would be nice if ANET changed this as I am currently sitting on 3/5 and the backpiece would tick a further one off the list.
