Though it appears to be nothing more than a nice blue icon on the map....
....Anyone with 100 gold can become a "Commander".
A Commander which is supposed to lead their world to victory but usually just lead their group to jumping puzzles.
100 gold is not that easy to come by unless you have been working the trade market or saving every gold you earned. Yet still, I can't help but wonder about the failed logic behind allowing something which SHOULD have come from experience to be bought.
If anyone can buy Commander...how the hell am I supposed to know who actually knows what they are doing if I am new?
Instead of pratically GIVING leadership titles away, there really should have been some type of requirement set in place. To be a commander, you should have to prove yourself or...SOMETHING.
Not just be another one of Guild Wars 2 MANY "money sinks".
But to top this off... you have the end armor in WvW which cost over 1000 "Badges of Honor" for the whole set.
You get the BoHs off bags from killing players or NPCS in WvW.
Most times there is no BoHs in the bags....so hmmm...
Which makes more sense...?
Letting any random player who could have just went into WvW his first day and bought the Commander book...?
...Or buying the book with 1000s badges that at least show you are some what a veteran in WvW?
But don't worry...this is just one of the many backwards and illogical features in Guild Wars 2.
I'll get to the trade market soon enough...
