Fractals are the one part of Guild Wars 2 PvE that I stayed away from, after some bad experiences early on in the game with some pick up groups. Now, I know a number of awesome people who are also awesome players.

My real inspiration to start playing them was the Mawdrey II back piece, though. Thanks to ArenaNET’s little “kick,” I am on the path to become a master of what is usually referred to as the hardest content in Guild Wars 2.
