[GW2] The Ticking Legendary Timer

I'm currently stuck in limbo - I am a precursor and a few measly T6 crafting materials away from finally finishing The Flameseeker Prophecies.

Unfortunately, I'm at an impasse. I've got a tonne of T6 crafting mats in my bank - each individual unit worth up to 30s. If I sold them all I'd have twice the amount I'd need to spend on my precursor, but then I'd be in a similar hole, I'd have the precursor, but none of the crafting mats I need to finish the job.

In essence, I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't. Even if I don't sell any crafting mats, when I finally reach the required amount to buy the precursor I'd still be spending every single penny I have in my bank, leaving me skint and with no money to finish off the 20 Powerful Bloods here and the 30 Vicious Claws there  (and, lets be honest, the 250 Crystalline Dusts over in the corner - FSP requires 500 overall).

I can keep trying to get a lucky drop - cycling through the meta events and throwing rares into the Mystic Toilet, but I've already got a Jade Weapon ticket drop in the past week, so I believe I might've hit my luck-quota for the quarter.

Thankfully, the price of precursor weapons is gradually coming down (fueled, I believe, by the release of the hugely useful event timer overlay and the implementation of the Karka Queen meta event which drops twice the normal number of rare items upon completion). The Chosen (the precursor I'm after) currently sits at about 250g (down from 270g a couple of weeks ago). I'm hoping I can meet the price about halfway - at 225-230g.

I promised myself that I'd have my legendary by the time my birthday rolled around. It is currently 24th June and my birthday is on the 28th July (don't forget!). If I'm going to get this done in time, then I'm going to need to make a decision - do I want to keep gambling on the M-Toilet or do I want to cash in some assets, buy the weapon and then have a more concrete goal of grinding back the mats I sold?

Either way, I'm going to be fucking poor by the time I'm blowing out my 26th candle.
