Default Wintergreen weapons

Why do people pay so much for wintergreen weapons? eg 50k+ for the spear.

Wintergreen weapons, unlike regular pepermint CC weapons, were only given to tournament xulia betting winners. There are only a limited number of them and they are inscribable, so they can be used in PvE and PvP (for example, the spear is often used as a caster spear, +5 energy, +30 fort).

people like non-max items that cannot be added to your hall of monuments, and not give any recognition in GW2 ... lol
I personally only spend big on items that i can add to my Hall of Monuments, wouldnt waste the cash on somthing no one will even know you own by gw2

Yeah but I fail to see why they don't use normal inscribable spears that are cheaper and look better.

Because they want to be crazy, and they think the spear looks better. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

But with 0 in spear mastery, you still do next to zero damage anyway.

I guess you haven't ever watched or played high level hero battles where some of the builds I've seen use barbs and all the caster heroes with spears its quite nice pressure along with being a decent caster weapon when modded properly.

I won a wintergreen bow, shield and sword. I don't suppose any of these are worth anything near what the spear is, are they?

Narsilik, if you still have your wintergreen weapon, don't be scam by other people.

Now wintergreen spear worth more than 250 ectos ! and others wintergreen weapons worth 30/50 ectos.

Take care

Granted, but it was the only one talking about wintergreen weapons. Better than opening up another topic about the same thing. Plus, I knew someone was bound to answer.

True, I was just worried that you were paying heed to the "50k+" in the OP
