Whatever the QA command is. I want it for normal players in some form. 29minutes of level up rewards per character.
And thats when I know exactly what to click on without having to look.

78 tomes should be tradable for a level 80 boost (without the goodies, just make my char level 80 and dismiss all levelup rewards)
but yeah, zero priority feature :P

There's about 5 boosters you want to get for your clicking.+ the various material chests.
~500 for a L80 with the HoT equivilent starter exo set maybe?
Archomeda
@Archomeda

so, ideally we have the same window as the lvl80 boost one, except with different rewards
saves us clicking 79 times
plus the extra confirmation windows for each next level rewards

I'd skip the non-salvagable rewards in them.
Anyone here know the reddit user name for ANETCSLead? (or if the changed it..) All I can think of is u/ChrisCleary, but that's Security, and not support. Got a friend who's semi-preemptively paniced trying to navigate the system. Email/Credentials but not 2FA compromised so they're still in game. Trying to beat out the thief's likely ticket to remove the 2FA

Yeah, non-salvagable items are just underrated gear anyway
I think the one from whom that reddit account was, is not with anet anymore
Also, don't you have to prove account ownership before you can remove 2FA?

I think AnetCSLead was Michael Henninger, who left Anet in November
the solution is always more 2FA
like on your mailbox

Honestly, I've seen so many horror stories about people getting 2FA stripped by one bogus call to CS (not ANet's specifically) that I don't think that helps much

social engineering is easier most of the times anyways. saw someone stealing identity to get a new sim card for his mobile contract just to bypass sms authentication

social engineering is always the weakspot of any security system

There's more than one way to remove 2FA, but if you don't have it in hand they all need a support ticket.
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 27 2016 18:23
well to be fair I lost my 2FA once, and it was effortlessly removed when I put a support ticket with as much info I could come up with (like my serial)
its a bit of a doubly edged sword, on one side you want it to be easily fixed when someone loses their 2FA
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:23
Yeah. Hence the support ticket race. ; Hopefully they won out and or have the serial on hand.

2017, the year of 3FA?
I suggest PGP, just to confuse non-tech-nerds
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Dec 27 2016 18:25
If you can provide a substantial amount of non-public information (like the serial) then I agree with it
It always irks me, however, when games use 'What is the name of a character on your account' to prove ownership
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:25
I'm a bad user. Serials are in Lastpass notes. Some-logins are in shortcuts. But those all have 2FA!
Character Name + Email is good if the email isn't the username; but only for username retreval
Gemcodes are in a pile, in the retail box for the game.

I never thought to keep my serial
I ordered digitally anyway
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:26
Pull it from the box/email reciepts.
Archomeda

Dec 27 2016 18:26
All support tickets I have ever sent were handled quite fast and without me having to send additional info, but I normally add my serial anyway
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:26
I'm always super paranoid about it, because I never have a CC on file for anything.

I don't know if I have that e-mail..
I've been archiving my e-mails for a year or so now
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:27
They've got a serial field, so.. that helps in most cases of non-dispute

In the initial ticket I mean

Probably not 4 years ago
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 27 2016 18:27
If you ordered via digital river or something its probably retrievable
CC#?

Yeah, oldest e-mail from GW2 I have is 'Gates of Maguuma' release

whats the point of archiving email if they they disappear?
how is that an archive
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Dec 27 2016 18:28
Because I only started using it 2 years ago
Before that I deleted

If in-game chat had a log to file I'd use that all the time too. I save EVERYTHING. ; I've got more than 100mb (Zipped) of logs from a MUD back in the day.

My PC is the home NAS. Pro-tip. Don't try to extract archives multiple gigs in size onto a drive while its sitting on a USB2 hub.
