it would be so much easier if the patch notes were saved in a format that's easily machine readable :P

Yeah, but the patchnotes on the forums are all over the place and apparently the wiki broke convention at some point as well (or my script is just bad, i didnt actually check)

okay I was surprised how easy it was to pull the raw text off all of the update pages. now to go through 19k lines and ensure everything is linked up properly..

If it'd be helpful I could ask around to see if we have archived patch notes in the raw textile?

that's the format the forums use right?

yes
btw, I wrote a small script converting the update notes to mediawiki markdown ages ago (apparently may 2013): http://gw2wbot.darthmaim.de/updatenotes.php (paste the url of the forum thread and click Formatieren)

@tivac, not useful for myself (just finished manually editing down 19k lines) but if others need it I'm sure they'd love you for that

have I missed something or is the only way to fish for total AP to combine the results of /v2/achievements (AP for each tier), /v2/account/achievements (which tiers complete) and /v2/account (daily AP).. there isn't a separate total?
found arenanet/api-cdi#299, so I guess not

Yep, that's currently the only way
And even if you get 99% of it right (the repeatables for example), it's still off by 1 or 2 for some people. ;_;
