It's in Vigil Keep in Gendarran Fields super high up swinging from a rafter. I don't know how someone got this high up as I am in picture, I took a portal up. I was not the first in the group to notice it. I did a quick search of sub and google and didn't see this one mentioned.

The TP has always been a bit flakey and even more so on Mac. But judging by the forum for the last 3 days or so it's been totally broken for a lot of Mac users.

No solution yet. Just a post to let everybody know that, no, it's not just you.

Edit: Three minutes after I posted there was an Anet response to the forum

Hello all, I talked to the Mac team this morning. A fix for the most recent TP issue is going in today. Regarding the on-going issues in this thread, they tell me that it it actually spans across more than the Mac client. And theyll have more information on those fixes later.

I was curious if anyone else is making a todo list for themselves for what to do on patch day this week? I have been thinking of it, and have come up with a few things I will be doing. I will add anything anyone else adds in the comments. Edit: Added things todo before the patch. If you have suggestions for that, please comment as well.

Todo before Patch:

  • If you haven't dumped your glory yet, now is your last chance. Vendor info
  • If you still have PVP Achievement Chests floating around, open those
  • Salvage all extra or unwanted PVP skins from the PVP Lobby Locker with the PVP Salvage kits(free from Glory Vendor)
  • Craft what you can with all your PVP materials in the PVP Lobby's Mystic Forge
  • If you have a bunch of cheap dyes laying around, learn them. If they are duplicates for an alt, they will turn into Unidentified dies after the patch.

Todo after Patch:

  • Read the patch notes
  • Patch the game.

Login to each character:

  • To combine WXP
  • Use(or take to NPC?) any transmute stones/crystals(to gain the charges from them)(Stones=3 to 1, Crystals=1 to 1)
  • Split any legendaries/ascended that you might have applied still to a white item, to get the stats back
  • Turn in transmutation splitters to the NPC, if you don't need them for splitting(5 transmute charges each)
  • Learn any skins each character has on them
  • Should have a ton of Un-IDed dyes now, either ID them, or Sell them

Visit Bank:

  • Clear out all skins that have been collecting in there
  • Determine if a refund is in order for any town clothes that became tonics
  • Use(or take to NPC?) any transmute stone/crystals that are in there(to gain the charges from them)(Stones=3 to 1, Crystals=1 to 1)
  • Turn in banked transmutation splitters to the NPC, if you don't need them for splitting(5 transmute charges each)

Login to each character again:

  • Choose your WXP traits to make sure they are set how you want on all your characters
  • Collect all the new traits that your characters might want/need
  • Figure out your new builds
  • Potentially buy new gear if needed for the new builds
  • Check out the new runes and replace the old ones if necessary.
  • Equip second sigil in all 2handers
  • Mess around with the dyes/skins that your characters have accessible now

General:

  • Check out what skins you are missing(will be seen at bank's new Wardrobe tab)
  • See what low hanging fruit is out there for skins, go acquire said skins(hopefully a guide is made by someone for this)
  • Play the game, maybe make a new character to try out the new trait acquisition system, all kinds of things from this point on.
  • Run the story mode for each dungeon again to unlock PVP reward tracks
  • At some point, create one of each class' story options to get the various masks and helms they all have.

I am sure I am forgetting a ton of things. I look forward to what people add to this list, or have as their own list.

Edit: Added a few things from the comments, made a few items more clear for folks and added a few more things that came to mind.

Edit2: Since some are confused, this was originally posted for what to do AFTER the patch. If there are things that need to get done before the patch, I can add those above as well. I have added a few things related to PVP skin/crafting system, that really NEEDs to get done before the patch.

you can search that users other videos for the other features it has. This mod seems to bring a lot of things you would expect to find in any WoW UI addons.

I seen that the other DPS meter that was posted here is out of date and no longer works so I decided to post this for theorycrafters who still want somthing to calculate dps outside of hours of using spreadsheets. It also works for condition damage.

-This does read from the games memory which is against the ToS, use at your own risk.

[META] Voting on this Subreddit isn't useful -- How /r/mashups handled it.

[ Apr 10, 2014, 6:16 am ]

I'm sure you've all noticed the poor rediquette followed by this subreddit when it comes to downvoting: there is a great deal of "I'm not interested in this so I'm downvoting it" and "I disagree with your opinion well-formed opinion so I'm downvoting it" and other things that the voting system was not intended for.

The biggest examples of these can be seen in any posts talking about playing game modes in specific ways (i.e. GvGs, non-zerker builds in PvE, rolling a Warrior, etc.) But I didn't come here to try and solve that issue, everyone has their likes and dislikes and that is just fine.

But the issue arises when people who dislike something downvote topics that are still interesting to a bulk of the other players. If you peruse the 'new' tab of this subreddit you'll see tons and tons of posts every day that never make it anywhere because they get instantly downvoted for no reason at all.

So what I would like to propose is that /r/guildwars2 implement a CSS trick similar to what /r/mashups/ has: where only the upvote button is immediately available. While this doesn't remove downvote functionality, it prevents it from being abused like it has been in the past. This doesn't need to hide the score of a post or apply to the comments section, but I firmly believe that the removal of the downvote button while browsing the subreddit will improve the content and the happiness of the community very quickly.

Since this is just a CSS trick, this will not actually remove your ability to downvote. Visiting via a multireddit, mobile, the front page, searches, etcetera, will still allow you to vote as usual.

/r/guildwars2 is still a somewhat smaller subreddit and we already have plenty of great rules that prevent bad and spammy content from showing up here. This will not prevent bad content from overtaking good content either: if content is bad it will not generate the upvotes it needs to get exposure. When +1/-43 and +64/-64 submissions get lumped together as "bad content" we all lose. Downvotes are not useful on this subreddit and only serve to harm the community in terms of content production and conversation quality.

Please share your thoughts below. I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks about this.

tl;dr: Downvoting isn't useful on this subreddit. Discourage it with a neat trick like /r/mashups did.


EDIT: I'd like to thank everyone in the comments section helping to support this! :)

The Great Champ Revamp

Crazy idea, want to see what people think.

In August 2013 most champion-level mobs were given a champ bag as a drop to reward players for killing them. This was done for 2 main reasons:

1- To reward players for taking the time and effort to kill a champion, an activity which wasnt very rewarding prior to the patch. 2- To motivate players to explore the world a bit more to seek out champions for loot.

This patch led to the oh-so-controversial champ trains, which WILL NOT be discussed here. Instead, I would like to propose how the update to champs SHOULD have gone

STEP 1: Make champion mobs named monsters. (ex. Champion Rabbit -> Fluffy McNibbles [or something to that effect]) a. This would make champs more unique and could add a lot to the lore of Tyria. It could also create a lot of opportunities for unique skins and titles.

STEP 2: Use a wider variety of spawn methods: a. Timed spawn (this is how most champs work now) b. Forced spawn (they appear as part of a Dynamic Event or other activity) c. Lottery spawn (they appear randomly, under specific conditions, or after a certain place-holder mob is killed)

STEP 3: Institute a Monster Hunter achievement track a. Award achievement points for each first-time champ kill (small amount, maybe 1 pt per champ) b. Have titles available for reaching certain numbers of killed champs (50, 100, etc.) c. Award a Monster Hunter Token for killing a certain number of champs, first-time champ kills, or randomly and rarely as a drop from champ bags.

STEP 4: Create a Monster Hunter NPC Vendor a. Redeem Monster Hunter Tokens for unique skins (weapon, armor, even trinkets just for prestige) b. He gives out a bounty that prompts you to go looking for a specific champ, the completion of which will result in small bonus reward (daily, unique for each account, bouncy chest would be easy to implement)

STEP 5: Discuss this idea. Pros, Cons, etc. I understand and accept that there will be trolls here, but if we really want to see some improvements in our wonderful game, we should strive to be as constructive as possible. Have fun!
