Yeah, I don't get off til 4:30, and google says 49 minutes right now..But it never fails to be 10-15 minutes later than the ETA
One time Google says 1 hour, and it took 2.5.

@lye Down with /v3 .Up with /v9001
Also. When WvWers use the term reset inconsistently on Fridays is a pet peeve. But hey. That's a good reason to be doing Friday deploys from home! Come out and support the reset community!
@lye Would it be possible to get something like /v2/BLTCUnlockerItem as a list of IDs for things that are unlocked by it? Yes i know that probably requires /v2/gliders v2/mailcarriers first. Just wondering if thats sane or always going to be a statically maintained list by the community.

@rwfrk_twitter aren't those like the new container previews?

Technically this is a container that does an unlock with a not static amount of possible outcomes. It might be special. It makes no items, only generates an unlock.

hmm, true
so we probably need entries that do not only have the item id, but rather the id and the type
aka { type: "skin", id: 1234 }, { type: "item", id: 2345 }, etc
and while it doesn't "contain" any of the already unlocked stuff on your account, there's still a global list

@lye There are weird things going on with the skin API. E.g. this thing is in the API (note the icon) with this unlock item (troll runestone weapon large bundle??)
There are quite a few of them http://i.imgur.com/I5fnXZL.png
Also a backpack strap skin? http://i.imgur.com/e6cF6tF.png

@queicherius The backpack straps come with any gemstore back skins, just so you have something to apply the skin to if you have no backpiece

@Eearslya Yes, but this is the skin "Backpack Straps", not the item. I don't know of any "strap" skin (and it's also not ingame).

might be a hidden skin?

Doesnt have the ISLOCKED/ISHIDDEN flag (i cant recall the name)
The 2 backpacks before ad infinitive are weirder. I've looked at them. On the wiki. In game. Done preview attempts. Much weirdness.
EVEN if they were blank skins, they'd let me skin my 'hidden' backpacks so I could tell which has which stats at a glance.
@lye Out of curiousity, does the game use PRNG or SRNG for things like BL Chests? (I'm having a statistics debate elsewhere)

Does ANET keep any stats for 'what player did the claiming' for an objective? I know they save/expose guild
