Today’s Tequatl run was especially rewarding. Look at the nice shiny I pulled out of the dragon chest!
One of the chests contained an item called “Tequatl’s Hoard”. It gives you one gold and lets you choose one ascended quality weapon (the choice of type is yours and stats are the same across all of them). At first I was unsure which type to pick because I’m still not certain if I’ll stick with my Mesmer in the future, but the items are account bound and both a staff and a greatsword will likely be of use later anyway (Guardian is one of my favourites for example and could wield both). I went with the greatsword in the end as it is my offense weapon while I use the staff for defense.
Funny how 90% of her gear is utter crap but the weapon is ascended. She’s, like, 5% more of a threat now!
