Wonder if anyone can answer this for me. I took a break from the game for a while after I completed the achievements for WvW Season 1, but before the end of season 1. So I have this WvW Season 1 Reward Chest Key, but not sure how to use it. Not sure if it’s even still usable or if i should just trash it.
Thanks for the info.
Personally it doesn’t bother me either way. I can’t seriously imagine myself taking the time to go back to my home instance every day for a skill point when I get more than I know what to do with already.
I just parked an alt there. Log in. 60 seconds later finish mining. Back to my main. Too easy.
Hate to say it because I don’t appreciate the PvE elements in WvW, but the Veteran Warg and the Veteran Wurm that spawns in the borderlands seem to get the buff regularly. It was pretty easy to just swing by their locations whenever you grab south or NW camp.
Answer to my own question… just had to get to level 3 and it popped right up.
I’m trying to complete my Hint Achievements. All I have left is the Ele Attunment Hint. Can anyone tell me how to get this hint to pop?
Somebody over there needs an Achievement Award! Epic troll, man. Epic.
I am now also experiencing this bug. It’s happened while transforming at the beginning and end of Guild Rushes and while doing Temple of Melandru when you get transformed into lizards.
I got it. I got it… You need to roll a warrior.
I can see that’s the only thing that will satisfy you.
shadow return from infiltrator’s strike: 1 condition
shadow return from shadowstep: 3 conditions
signet of agility: 1 condition per nearby ally (up to 5)
trait into it: 1 condition per 3 secs of stealth
Bowl of Saffron-scented Poultry Soup: 1 condition per healing skill
That’s more than enough.
Note: The vendor at the trading post does not offer the Desert Rose or Zephyr Rucksack Skins.
Quip is a joke. Literally.
I guess it was pretty nice of Arena Net to give mesmers their own legendary weapon, theme appropriate only to them, but they could give other professions the same kindness.
I have the Quip on my engi and I love it. Every time you go from a kit to the pistol, ribbons go flying. Because we can swap between kits faster than other professions can weapon swap this produces an effect unique to our profession. Stop QQing and enjoy the little things.
Maybe I’m giving ANet too much credit, but wouldn’t it be great if they implemented the wallet, but didn’t remove the bank feature (or vault feature as I would think of it) when implementing this improvement. (And it is an improvement, and thank you ANet for doing it.)
I can assure you, Evon keeps himself well-groomed.
I heard Evon smells like a camel.
Evon is the obvious no brainer choice.
Not sure what’s making people vote Kiel, when a reactor explosion is not nearly as cool (or important) as is the rendering of Abaddon in GW2.
If it wasn’t for Abaddon, most of the big events in GW1 would have not even happened.
Which, might I remind, those events make up what GW2 is in many ways.
A reactor explosion that changed the very fabric of Tyria…. you know… the very thing that make up what Gw2 is….
Go look at Warrior’s Berserker’s Stance. Warriors can be condition resistant whenever they want. (And they can trait for it auto at 25% health.) AND…. they just got a buff to the duration.
Watch for changes to that before they nerf AR.
I still haven’t tested cloaking device yet. If anyone can answer this question (do I get the full 5 sec invi if I take a less than 5 sec immobilize?) I would really appreciate it. If yes, the I could go for -88% cripple/chill/immobilize and build around that.
You remain invisible for the 5 seconds (as long as you don’t attack anyone) even if you remove the immobilize in the first second. It’s actually very helpful in getting away from a zerg when they helpfully make me invisible and then I have 5 seconds to do whatever I want. (Well… not anything… but you get the idea.)
I choose GW2 (new) lore over GW1 lore. Been there, done that.
It doesn’t have to be the person who started it just a person in the area (with the event notification on their screen) the same goes for the puzzle
Thanks for the intel. Now I have a new task for the newbies.
We had this happen. It seems that whoever starts the rush at the rush location has to stay in the zone until the 30 min clock is complete.
At least that’s what we do now and we get “Rush completed”.
Had the “fail” twice…. once where the guy who started logged off. And once when I was just in a different zone.
Hope this helps. Would like to hear if others have this issue.
Settler’s w/ Runes of Undead for HGH build. Doooo eeet!
Thanks Mod for elevating. Wondering if we can get an update?…
I posted about this yesterday… forum moderator moved the post to the “Tech Problems” forum…
Yo ANet…. this problem is not on my side. It’s on yours. Please look into it.
been in BG BL since I posted that…. no DC. No lag.
Just got DCed from JQ BL again… now gonna try BG.
are you guys all in tier 1 and on jqbl? The only place I found the lag was on our borderland. Its un playable right now and only started this morning. Everyone in my guild is experiencing it currently there.
Yes, we were in JQ BL…. Wow… is that it? One server w/ a problem? Will test this theory more.
I am having a problem w/ 2-3 solid seconds of lag every 20-40 seconds or so. It seems to be worse when their is more action going on. I didn’t notice it before the last patch. Haven’t noticed it in dungeons or fractals. Haven’t noticed it during the Southsun events. Seems to only happen in WvW. Very annoying. Every once in a while it leads to a DC.
Score update please!
Login server is down, bud. Will update when it’s back up.
p.s. if you go to the Upgrades dude, you can see that the upgrade is in progress. It’ll say so for whatever was being built prior to the patch.
It happens when there is a new patch. This has happened every time for months and months. You have to remember to go and click on the workers after you relog to get them working. The upgrade is in progress even though there is no progress bar. Give it time and supply. When you queue the next upgrade the progress bar will work correctly.
Note that Predator is still bugged and won’t change the look of your Grenade Volley like it used to. The bug still hasn’t been fixed for a while now.
Not fixed for other ledgendaries as well…. I have a Quip. Youtube videos show streamer Grenade Volley. I’ve never seen it in game since I got the Quip. I don’t think they intend legendaries to affect tool kit skills anymore.
I’m quite enjoying the buff to arrowcarts. It’s forced myself and the small groups I play with in WvW to implement new tactics to overcome something that’s actually quite dangerous now. The buff probably is a bit too strong, but I’m liking how things have been changed up suddenly. Maybe the damage increase shouldn’t be applied to siege weapons?
I agree w/ this guy. I don’t see what the problem is. This change is making it much harder to PvDoor. It’s forcing teams to try new things. And note, towers, keeps, and castles are still flipping in WvW. It hasn’t broken anything. I’m liking it very much. Devs, please keep it!!
I wonder what the affect would be on WvW if you couldn’t pass through another player. I’d consider restricting player movement through opponents and friendlies alike.
Might not be good to implement for friendlies because of trolls, though you can see immediately that for people to zerg, they’d effectively be trapping themselves / losing mobility options. That may discourage mass zerging somewhat.
By making it impossible to move through an opponent might eliminate or restrict the zergs ability to roll over opponents w/o killing them first. There is never a “300” moment in this game where a smaller force could at least prevent a larger from moving through an area. The big zergs don’t even operate on the notion of killing you as an individual. It’s more about owning a plot of ground than killing.
If zergs were no longer able to physically pass through each other, I think you’d see much better battles w/ impromptu battle lines. The geography would be much more important. Think of the implications for portal-bombs. I’d really like ANet to consider this idea. It’s a game changer.
i playd this game for half a year now and theres still no spinning cogwheel shield
honeslty at this point i dont know if anet is actively trying to lose customers
gg anet ur horrible shield is making ppl leave the game ..
LOL…. Love the this troll post. And this is a good idea. They should call it “TheQuke” for sure.
I give you The (Charr) Avengers
I’d like confirmation on this too. My elixer gun is not consistent on this anymore.
I haven’t seen the statistics on Engi usage. Is it still an underplayed class? If so, why is ANet continuing to hold it down?
The bags are a pretty bad design for PvP. With the way people move around in combat you often have to leave the bags behind. If you stop to loot you may be letting down a team member. I don’t really like to let people down in combat.
You have to choose: Your friend or your lewt…
Take the mad lewts… buy new friend…
BG: Welcome to the fight from SPQR on SoR. T2 was epic w/ you for the, what was it…. 7, 8 weeks we were at it. Let’s make this T1 battle epic, too.
Thank you! Makes sense….. now that you said it. Shoulda had a might stack there.
Hey…. just noticed this on my thief alt. I don’t play her much so not sure if it was always there and I never noticed or if it is new. Check the pic. What’s the lil face boon mean? When I hover mouse it pops up a small empty bubble.
I gotta say. Fantastic match up so far. Welcome to T2, Coasters.
Buncha pros there….
I agree w/ the comments said by Mishi and others in this thread. Thanks Doomdesire for starting it. We are in need of more Oceanic and European players.
Welcome to all our newest members. More WvW players are welcome. 18+ please. We organize w/ Mumble.
Well, ill give it a shot and put an app in on the website. Solo wvw is boring.
Do it Urz. And run w/ us later tonight as we WvW as a team as usual. Look for our commanders Napleon, Jumble Akimbo, Schug, or Empress in WvW after 7:30 EST. Get in this fight!
what did you combine?
How many active players do you have? What times are they active? What do you offer beyond wvw?
Keep in mind Urzen, we don’t take in randoms just looking for a place to hang their hat. We take mature, active players who participate in the voice chat. This “quality not quantity” approach means that when we WvW, we know we have the absolute best rolling w/ us. Check out some of our videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/TRGUILD1 Numbers mean nothing to us.
As was mentioned, we WvW several nights a week, we do dungeon nights, we do mini-dungeons, we run one-time content like the Halloween event as a team.
If you think you’d like an organized active guild filled w/ only the best, give me a shout in-game.
