Well pretty sure I tried all the fractals now. No surprise, aside from a few. Snow map was half a breath of fresh air, solid ocean arguably ok if only for the scenery. I'm gonna have to go with the dredge being the worst. Embodiment of kill a bunch of god damn mobs and then kill more that spawn.
On the other hand, I'm pretty sure Anet is going to keep their trend of ball busting mystic forge recipes and abysmal chest rates. Yes I want to spend upwards of 15g on your skins or pets because you set the god damn rate to some low bloody rate. Yes I want to repeatedly collect a full stack of powerful bloods, ectos, or whatever that's at least 20s each in price to forge something.
