Eh really hoping I can find a fix somewhere. I have lots of Steam buddies so I like to stay connected on there while I play. Worked great since prelaunch. Thanks though!
I’ve been using GW2 with the Steam overlay since launch, all of a sudden today GW now crashes whenever I do this. Nothing changed on my computer’s end since it worked just last night. I have no way of knowing whether it’s steam or guild wars, but I’ve tried the beta and non-beta versions of steam and no difference there. Running latest stable AMD drivers. Other non-steam games do not crash, only GW2
Here’s my experience since I had this happen:
I’ve done it successfully on 3 different maps, 2 of them counted for Clockwork Chaos category, none of them counted for Emissary Vorpp.
I was in overflow every time, Jade Quarry. Fireheart Rise and Gendarran fields are the ones that worked on Clcokwork Chaos. When I did Sparkly Fen (probably the one that I was at the longest out of all 3) I didn’t get any credit anywhere for it (we did succeed, by a lot too). The only thing I can think that happened differently with Sparkly Fen was the game did crash during the event, when I came back then I had to join one of my group mates in their overflow. But I don’t think that would be part of the pattern, the other 2 maps I started the invasion by joining groups in other overflows.
I did actually just look at the other tabs and notice that haha. Awesome. I’m guessing that means they’re permanent!
Has Arenanet said? I got a ticket, but can’t decide yet on which skin to get
I’ve been going off this guide to make most of my sPvP gear http://www.guildwars2guru.com/topic/55030-pvp-mystic-forge-recipes/
For my weapons, I wanted to make the corrupted equivalent of sword and dagger (Icy Dragon would be awesome, but from what I can tell, that hasn’t been discovered yet). Confusion lies in the fact that the guide lists frozen and etched under deer, and there are two “Etched Blade”s in the pvp locker, one the regular svanir looking and one the corrupted(frozen) looking.
I tried a couple times of combining sword + deer + dust + sliver and just got the non-frozen Etched blade. Is it just RNG to get the frozen versions, or is there a better guide out there for this?
I don’t know any other business model where it’s acceptable to say “Sorry for taking your money and giving you nothing back, better luck next time”
Actually from my reading of the lastest ToS that you must agree to upon playing the game, the Gems have no actual real life money value, even if you paid for them with real money. So according to the ToS, losing gems means losing $0.
Ouch, well that explains why they can get away with this.
Thanks, yeah I was going to pass on the restore anyways because the hours of progress I would have lost in order to do it was not worth the 10g anyways. It’s too bad this T kitten uch a clunky and buggy part of such a great game. When you have a tool that is involved in processing transactions, it should probably be a priority for development so that you don’t anger too many people, especially when dealing with real life money… I don’t know any other business model where it’s acceptable to say “Sorry for taking your money and giving you nothing back, better luck next time”
RNG buy button !
Arg. Yeah and nothing more here. Not sure what I was expecting.
So this morning around 10am EST I bought a Shiver Sky dye for about 9g 50s. The TP took my money, but there was nothing in my pickup tab. I look in “items I’m buying” and it showed that I had a buy order for 1 copper for the dye. Sooo, it took my money that I placed for a buy now, and instead of giving the dye it just sticks a bogus buy order in there.
I file a support claim (Incident:130415-001315) and all they say they could do is restore my account to days ago, losing lots of other progress I’ve made. I don’t farm much, so 10g is a lot for me in-game. How can this be normal support for a currency that can be easily equated to real money? This doesn’t make any sense.
Normally when something like this happens on the TP, it fixes itself within 30 minutes or so… but it has been 7 hours now and nothing.
Same, problem here, Jade Quarry…

This just started happening to me tonight, and I previously never had an issue with SAB, nor do I hardly ever have disconnect issues. I’ve tried 4 times now, and without fail I get EXACTLY two hits off with my stick on the zone 1 cage at the end and immediately get disconnected. Here is the error http://i.imgur.com/2sylnk9.jpg
So I’m unable to play through SAB anymore.
I like to imagine it’s less rotating and more using the best skill at your disposal for a situation.
I think people like combos because it takes that part out.
That’s why they play dd eles? ;D
Oh, and THE ANSWER on your quastion:
BTW was just trolling around on wvw with my 0/30/10/30/0 d/p 1v5, so much fun (:
It’s nearly d/d unicorn, but with blinds+stealth instead of evade.
I just switched to d/p recently but am still using 10/30/30/0/0. Could I see your 0/30/10/30/0 build? I’m sure the extra dodging can outweigh the healing from Shadow’s Rejuvenation, but I feel like I’d have too little condition removal without Shadow’s Embrace since I’m assuming you use Infusion of Shadow in your build. I’d love to see what yours is.
Honestly, what is with all of the complaining? I got mine done within 5 minutes of doing an Orr event as a thief.
All throughout my leveling, it drove me nuts that stealth would reset a skill challenge. That seemed like a big oversight, since, well, stealth is kind of… a big deal for thieves, yeah?
I’ve been running dungeons with my thief for months now, almost to dungeon master, and my biggest pet peeve is that fact that stealth will reset boss encounters. My entire build for dungeons is focused on reviving being with stealth, runes of mercy, etc. But if everyone in my party is stealthed for even a split second, the entire encounter resets and we have to start all over again. It’s very easy to make this happen when one or two members of the party have already died during the fight, and so I accidentally did it twice in Arah last night and it made me feel like an kitten even though I was helping my team out. Is there no way to fix this?
Sounds like blood wouldn’t be great for this build then, since my crit rate is low when not backstabbing. Thanks Tulisin.
Thanks for the advice!
Right now I’ve just got sigil of corruption on my shortbow because it was a lot cheaper and at the time I wanted something nice for pve/dungeons, so I’ll probably switch it out to bloodlust when I have some more money.
For the daggers, I’ll have to run some tests in PvP to compare sigil of strength (might) vs air to see what gives me the most damage. Don’t want two on-crit sigils of course. What about the health stealing one? Is that effective at all?
So the spec I use for WvWvW and some PvE (not dungeons) is a full shadow arts and critical strikes with valkyrie gear focusing on backstab damage, full set of rune of the scholar.
So I’m pretty happy with everything in my setup, except I can’t decide on what sigils to use for the daggers. Right now I just have superior sigils of force, but I’m sure one of the on crit cooldown ones could come in handy for one of the daggers. Anyone have any recommendations of what they’ve tried and liked?
Actually the last several times I checked SoRall, it was not “full.” Usually was checking early morning time.
Awesome, thanks, you’ve given me hope
Thanks. Going to cross my fingers and hope he can. I really wish they either had guesting working or that server transfers hadn’t dropped to once a week so that we didn’t have to wait to play.
My wife and a couple of other friends are on SoR, in a guild where we’ve made lots of new friends. I bought a buddy of mine the game to play with us, but the server is full right now. Has anyone by any chance ever noticed it dropping out of “full” status during odd hours? It’s a big bummer. I really don’t want to have to leave our guild and server so that we can play with him.
Ok, cool, I’ll focus on precision mainly and go for a balance of berserker/knight depending on how much I’m getting squashed
Thanks for the tips guys! This will help me out a lot. For gear, would you typically go for “knight” equipment?
It sounds like from what I’m reading, my trait setup was pretty close to the same idea as crithammer. What would you swap for Defender’s Flame? Glacial Heart maybe?
Aha, I know this build would be for level 80 only… I’m just planning for the future I like having a goal to get to, it keeps me motivated to level.
The only reason mace/focus is my favorite so far is because of the amount of blocking/healing/support that it has, but I’m willing to try out other weapons as I level up to see if I like them. I can take a look at the crithammer builds. I did have fun with the hammer in the lower levels, especially since my guy is Asura and the animations make me chuckle the way he holds a 2h hammer. Thanks for the reply (I’ll just do a search for crithammer on the forums to find a good spot that discusses this one?)
I’m still leveling my guardian alt (35 now), I usually play a thief, and trying to come up with a build that I think I’d like. I enjoy doing a support role as I’m always playing this character with my wife, but I want to also still be able to put out a decent amount of damage. This is what I’ve come up with, most choices meant for dungeons/group leveling, but there are a couple traits and weapons I could swap for when doing wvwvw and I think it would still be effective. Anyone have any thoughts so far? http://gw2skills.net/editor/?fUAQNApdWlcg67WFSLEmIFRuA7DDETBGh/1DKqQGC;TsAg1CooAzAmAMLYOwkgtYYQwkAA
Mainly I’m going for an effective way to keep constant healing up with altruistic healing synergy from symbols, shouts, crits with empowering might, and using virtue of justice for every fight with inspired virtue and renewed justice. I’m not 100% on defender’s flame, but with mace/focus combo I do have lots of methods of blocking (I would probably swap this out for purity for wvwvw). It looks like it’d be a good tanking and support build, while still doing decent damage output from crits and burning.
I’d appreciate any constructive feedback, thanks everyone!

OHHHH that makes perfect sense now, thank you Castillle. The blinding powder issue was probably just me not noticing the person attacking immediately or something.

I thought that might have been the case too, with Smoke Screen at least, but when I test it out of combat (just around lion’s arch) it seems to affect an even wider field than my Cluster Bomb cursor

I recently got to 80 and respecialized my thief to a build that focuses on stealthing/healing my teammates and keeping them alive – an extremely handy build in dungeons. For my utility, I normally run with Smoke Screen / Blinding Powder / Shadow Refuge (except in WvW, I swap out smoke screen with shadow signet of course), and most of the time I’m running with shortbow unless we have a single mob to fight.
So a large focus of my build is providing 5s of regeneration any time I stealth someone. I’ve ran several dungeons with this build now, and the problem I’m running into is that stealthing teammates is very unpredictable. Shadow Refuge seems to work just about every time as far as I can tell. However, blinding powder doesn’t always stealth people right next to me, and combining Smoke Screen + Cluster Bomb hardly ever works at all, even on myself.
The problem is not coming from the fact that players cannot restealth a few seconds after coming out of stealth, I always leave enough time in between stealths. The problem is not distance, I do this right next to people. I know the combo is working, because the “Area Stealth” message pops up. I know it’s not just a visual problem, because we don’t get the regeneration boon either. They just do not seem to work all of the time, and I can’t find a pattern as to why. Sometimes one person will stealth, but another won’t. Has any one else run into this? Am I just crazy?
