The sheer amount of fanboyism makes me want to vomit. Let me put it in a way that I think people will understand better. First off, let me explain where I’m coming from: my main character has something around 430 hours played and I have 100%ed the map, gotten a legendary, and more. I still play the game a ton and try to make new goals for myself to achieve now that I finished the legendary. I am about the most hardcore fan of GW2 you can possibly get.
The halloween event as a whole has been amazing. I think the clock tower will go up there for one of the coolest things ever done in a game (and the fact that I did it as a male norn guardian in about an hour and a half of attempts!). I cancelled a ton of RL things just to make it on for the Act 3 event which Anet let us know is a “DO NOT MISS” occasion. I didn’t really know what to expect and when the mad king came bursting out of the lion statue, I think I crapped myself. I got a group with my guild and went in to make sure he didn’t come out and start ravaging Lions Arch. We jumped in, ended his existence, and then when the rewards window came up and I saw a 10 slot bag that would be forever sitting in my bank as a reminder that “Man, the halloween event was cool, it’s too bad it only rewarded people who got lucky”
I also had my hopes up too — the clocktower had a guaranteed level 80 exotic as its first time reward. I’ll look at those slippers and think to myself “The clocktower was amazing, it’s nice that they gave out a nice reward for the pain of actually completing it”
So to finalize: It’s an amazing event, has me excited for future content, but it also tempers my expectations that ANet’s philosophy is gambling, which is perfectly fine. Guild Wars 1 always reminded me of Diablo and Diablo’s philosophy is also gambling. It just means that you never get your hopes up for anything and if you do get lucky and score big, be thankful for it since there’s thousands of other people getting screwed over.
Anyways, lets start speculating about what all the new content coming in November is! Since after this event, it’s going to be awesome!… but lets just not talk about the rewards.
Edit: Oh, there still is Act 4, which could have a really fun reward still, so all this complaining could be completely premature.

Once you’re level 80 with magic find gear, you poop 50 silver.
I’m going to make a comparison to that other game. On their latest halloween event, they give out extremely powerful ring. Because of GW2’s gear having the same stats for all exotics at level 80, they can’t really give out something powerful, they would have to give out something with looks, or something which is useful like a bag. I didn’t mind the reward being a bag, but a 10 slot bag is an insult to everyone.
Looking at the mad king, his helmet, his shield, everything.. The anticipation of killing him and seeing what goodies await…
A 10 slot bag? You really couldn’t even spring for a 15, 18, or even a 20 slot bag?
I’m really at a loss for words. I really hope the dungeon loot buffage incoming soon isn’t done by the same person who chose a 10 slot bag reward for such an amazingly well done event.
Elona’s confirmed: just bought a ton of obsidian shards and made my gift of mastery
With the halloween event and wvw just resetting, it’s probably gunna be a bit before a big enough group of people do the balth event… I tried again on my server last night, but only had 10 or so people show up for priest (tried zone teleporting to advertise). I’m going to keep trying and will post if I’m successful in gathering enough people to make it happen.

I can screen shot my slippers if you don’t believe me.
Maybe it’s offtop but I hope you guys answer. How you get legendary so fast? I mean… it’s need tons of gold Can someone tell best way to farm a gold? I have only 20g atm. Sorry for my bad english.
Get a full set of MF gear, start the karma grind and after penny pinching everything and grinding over a million karma, you will be very well set for cash.
Also a huge tip, make sure to group when you do the plinx chain — your drops will be a lot better!
Anyone’s server have an uncontested/open balth?
Thanks for the update — sorry to hear the attempt failed. The event is “working” at the moment on Darkhaven — our 5-6 people got it to the point the priest spawned, but not nearly enough people to actually kill it. Hopefully it stays that way until the evening when more people login.
Anyway lets keep this updated for who has the temple uncontested and the vendor spawned. Thanks!
Any servers have this open right now?

As a side comment, it would be nice if events could be reset every night even if there isn’t a patch. This would prevent huge frustration like on Darkhaven at the moment with Arah, skill points preventing world completion, the temple of balthazaar being perpetually broken on just about every server preventing the purchase of obsidian shards, etc.

There are numerous broken events on the Darkhaven server at the moment and the worst of them is causing the event chain which opens Arah’s gates to be bugged. For about three days now the gates have been closed and no one is able to run the dungeon. If you could please bounce our server so it resets everything, I can guarantee all of us would appreciate it.
The problem is there are way to many bots, were to many exploits which went unplugged for a while so it’s questionable how bad the damage is, and there is a group of people sitting on unheard of amounts of gold. With the game DR in place, legitimate players cannot really farm more then 1 GP an hour (and that usually includes getting lucky to find a rare, blow it up for a glob and selling it). So what Archer said above is true, by the time I could farm 250 gold, cheaters/botters will have brought the price up to insane amounts.
