Stat blocks can be pretty cool too.
Even if I'm not an economist or a mathematician, I love stat dumps, so this Guild Wars 2 blog post talks the supply and demand, some exploits, and some pretty interesting statistics (all broken down in the chart above). For example, gender roles and how they relate to crafting.
To make up for some surplus items tossed around the trade system, Arenanet has launched a few new recipes into the Mystic Forge that make boxes, which generate random gold and items.
More importantly, responses have been made to exploits that have been making the rounds, specifically ones that generate a lot of karma or gold for no (or very little) cost. This follows the thousands of bans handed out to exploiting players earlier in the week, which it generated just a bit of controversy.
