Feb 09 2017 00:30
can I bug support about graphic issues?
maybe but they probably won't be able to do much about it
they might forward to the appropriate teams though
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:31
the 3rd boss on the new raid flashes for me when I use Mesmer shield 5
I think I saw a comment like that in the AMA
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:31
like it becomes semitransparant
Michael Dougall
@madou
Feb 09 2017 00:32
anyone know the achivement id for the new raid boss
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:34
can you find it @lye? Because I cant
sec
this is wing 4 right?
which boss do you want? there's 4 bosses
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:35
the third one, it has weird graphic glitches for me
uhh
which one is the third boss >_>
is that the warden
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:35
yes
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:36
I think we are miscommunicating here

yeah
no worries
i thought you guys were talking about the same thing :<
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:37
I am talking about a weird graphic glitch on the warden
anyway @windwarrior I'd post about it on reddit; lots of eyes on there right now
Michael Dougall
@madou
Feb 09 2017 00:38
hahahah yeah his last comment kinda sounded like that
:D

@windwarrior i've seen that tides of time bug before
but more on random enemies i think, not a raid boss
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:43
it was really annoying
and my guild mates were like
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:44
yeah you cant swap
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 00:45
my armor ;-;
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:45
yeah posted it there, thanks @lye
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 00:45
it completely broke in the last story instance lol
gotta get that infinite repair canister XD
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 00:48
lol
never
all i want to say is that that instance went horrible and that i didn't like it
i prefer raids over that instance, any time
great, collection achievement to get other asc mats eater, but this time you get to keep the collection items......
Archomeda @Archomeda sighs
by-design wont-fix
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 00:51
it's just so inconsistent :(
they don't even have a vendor value :|
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 09 2017 00:51
the raid seems pretty straight forward
most guilds have progressed pretty smoothly to the last boss
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 00:52
i haven't even set foot in the new raid
i should do that actually
wait, i have to repair my armor first lol
first time in years i've been a naked charr without doing it on purpose :P
well, that's interesting
i haven't looked at the map for the new raid wing, as i wanted to be surprised to where it actually is
i travel to the wp in bloodstone fen
i'm on top of the icon, but there's no entrance to be seen :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:09
oh
it's on the lower waypoint
too bad that icon doesn't show whether it's above or below your current height :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:14
soo... we are still using magnetite shards as currency?
magnetite shard converter....
Archomeda @Archomeda drools
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:26
Speaking of shard converter... Can you expose the rotation in the API? Partly to taunt me into getting it done...
I'd also love to see the 15day rotation for fractals, but at least I can gather that without magically finishing it.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:27
i still have to finish the other raid achievements as well :(
but i can't find a group that can do it
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:35
I've got a couple left from last time. Including a mote failure at an absurdly low KC %. Not having my static anymore hurts.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:35
i have a static, of like 2-5 people in total... heh
never had a full group :(
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:37
Losing my static basically stopped me from raiding. Its a lot of effort without one.
So I swapped my old raid schedule for WvW commitments.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:38
you aren't EU are you?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:38
NA.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:38
:<
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:38
I could point you in the direction of an EU raider, but I dont know what their usual raid coverage is like.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:41
coverage?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 01:42
They were asking because their 10/10 group that'd signed up to go check out the raid at patch time had a couple people drop out.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 01:43
that's always sad when that happens :(
well, i'm not going to play right now anymore XD
it's late
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 03:41
@lye Wait, any more web programmer spots? Did you add someone?
@Eearslya yeah about 6 months ago? I can't remember dates.
Maybe it was only 4 months.
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 04:15
Guessing they don't work the API
Michael Dougall
@madou
Feb 09 2017 04:30
what does the new guy think about using mithril
also lye any chance of match statistics getting added anytime before the next pvp season?
:angel:
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 18:12
@madou Which stats?
match statistics don't ever leave the map instance server
Evan's definitely mentioned it to me and I've mentioned that back so it's not off the table, at least.
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 18:15
I'm just curious what's left at this point? Top stats? The small burst of numbers you get a the bottom in terms of personal damage/health? How's the later useful? ; There's no personal score anymroe.
yeah top stats I think
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 18:29
Evan? o:
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 18:29
the PVP dev

Evan Lesh
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 18:30
I think lye and pat are the only 2 devs I actually know by name
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 18:30
Am I the only one collecting knowing the devs?
no, a couple of other people do too
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 18:31
Probably because they're the only ones I actually have regular contact with, here. XD
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 18:31
Now if only we could have a grouping feature in the contact panel
i'm tired of renaming everyone ANET_DevAccountName
LOL
Coffee4cr @Coffee4cr hides in shame
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 18:36
grouping feature? just let us have tags that work as categories :P
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 18:58
yeah, same I guess
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:09
@lye, a question. How come loads of the stats in the itemstats api are blank both in terms of name and stats? https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/itemstats/796
lemme take a look
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Feb 09 2017 19:11
Script-generated stats?
I don't think we have script-generated stats
(still loading the content tool; my CPU is bogged down)
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:14
I mean all of the sensible stats are there, like agony infusions/pvp stuff/pve stats, but there's a bunch of empties
it might be something stupid like stats that shouldn't be whitelisted
this machine is so slowwwwww
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:16
or my personal favourite prefix: {
"id": 1220,
"name": "((777623))",
"attributes": {
"Precision": 0.3,
"Healing": 0.165,
"ConditionDamage": 0.3,
"BoonDuration": 0.165
}
},
rip
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:17
looks like seraph
that's almost certainly referenced by some item
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:17
except seraph is 1222..
uhh okay, so
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:17
so 1220 is ingame?
796 is the upgrade used by superior sigil of momentum
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:18
huh. so the different +1 charges have different itemstats?
1220 is only referenced by items with "DEPRECATED" in their internal name, so I'd say probably not
HOWEVER. 1220 also appears selectable by some of the choosy items lolz
the text name is ((Seraph)) hmm
that'll probably get localized at some point
ah okay, 1220 is seraph's for trinkets, 1222 is seraph's for armor
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:21
olololol
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:22
that was back on sunday
also why there are two different itemstats for armor/trinkets is beyond me
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:23
If I remember properly, there is a tiny percent difference between the difference in the stats for trinkets and weapons/armor
yeah but 1220 and 1222 have the same multipliers
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:23
I started on this trip today by trying to figure out if there was a jeweler recipe producing seraph stats
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:24
maybe one stat is used for legendary selection? I know that atm if you try to select seraph on a legendary you get ((numbers here))
speaking of ((unlocalized text))

nice ui.
is that mussels gnashblade?
thx
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:25
one sec, they are new recipes
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 19:25
yeah the two items they banned due to insider trading
probably?
ah derp, that makes sense
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 19:25
yeah there's probably two other same ones
with different ID
that came out with the post-patch
Divinity Fair Mussels might be the other?
nope Saffron
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:27
damn. Yeah, I think those were the ones that got the recipes changed right at launch
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 19:27
yep
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:28
"Consequently we disabled in this release the ability to purchase two new crafting recipes, Divinity Fair Mussels and Saffron Mussels"
ah makes sense
I like how the wiki has an ingredient listing despite that? lol
or did they get re-enabled
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 19:29
they got re-enabled in the next hotfix iirc
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 19:30
^^
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 19:44
There are 2 DIFFERENT boxes of WvW supplies o.O ; This explains so much about why purchases from A seem so much better than B.
Speaking of ((unlocalized text)) - Seraph in Legendary stat select dropdown.
@Coffee4cr Haven't added [Department] to that nickname yet? :P
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Feb 09 2017 19:47
not yet
but man, they have so many Ben's
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 19:47
Because we needed 1220 and 1222 to be different? boggle (yes, I'm just catching up on scrollback)
I'm sick of crafting recipe changes for insider trading. Just dont turn them on in the PTR test build for the vendor (I'm told BLChests dont get pushed there either). This is one I'd have profited on just by not vendoring stuff and letting it stack up in my bank without insider trading even)
@Coffee4cr I also occassionally add a major project to distinguish between same dept folk.
Systems: "Squad markers 0-9"

@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:13
Anyone know if "join date" is something ANET keeps track of for guild members (after it scrolls off of History->roster)...
hmm
yeah we store that data
it's available in /v2/guild/:id/members
hmm, which scope should home instance unlocks require? unlocks or progression?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:26
unlocks
That's an authenticated endpoint. Ah well =/
I'm actually thinking progression:
  • unlocks: Your wardrobe unlocks—skins, dyes, minipets, finishers, etc.—and currently equipped skins.
  • progression: Your achievements, dungeon unlock status, mastery point assignments, and general PvE progress.
man I can see a case being made for either; this is rough
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:27
What general PvE progress? Level?
like fractal level and such
dungeon/raid completions, etc
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:28
Its not an achivement. Nor is it inherently tied to any story though some come close (see also bypassing with TP to friend). Most are litterally throw gold at it.
Which is why I come down on the side of unlock.
Yeah, I definitely see that argument.
I'm just going to make it work with either.
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:28
"currently equipped skins"..thinking about moving that somewhere else? How does that differ from a wardrobe unlock?
that's under inventory
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:29
I'd calla nything currently equipped /builds
wait what is that not under inventory/builds
listen I don't know what I've done
literally trapped in a wet cardboard box
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:29
Past logic !=Future logic
At least your cardboard box isnt frozen solid anymore.
My hesitation with 'make it work for either' is that could get risky for complexity in terms of breaking things by accident.
Hmm, yeah.
// XXX will revisit when smarter
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:32
Are you more settled about Glider = Unlock though?
./mailcarrier
gliders should be unlocks, yeah
I need to make pull requests for those eugh
tomorrow :musical_note:
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:58
Could we get the actual stats for ((782299)) please?
sorry, not sure what that is
what's the type/id?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 21:59
[&AgH1OQEA] - Food, Consumable.
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 22:01
I think that's an in-game issue
since the stats don't show in-game
if the stats don't show in-game they won't show in the API either
since they're reading from the same data
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 09 2017 22:01
wiki talk page says "100 precision, 70 healing power " though
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Feb 09 2017 22:01
Correct. ^. I just didn't expect the numbers for the stat to be in the localized string. I figured it'd be X (localized name of stat) etc.
probably worked that out by looking at the equipment page buffed/non-buffed. that'll do. thanks =)
Definately the new raid-heal food.
https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/items/80373 was what I was looking for
((+100 Precision
+70 Healing Power
+10%% Experience from Kills))
the stat effects are duplicated in a description string and as script parameters; should probably pull out the script parameters
eugh buff modifier values
can you tell which cats are in the home instance via achievements?
or do I need to add /v2/account/home/cats
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Feb 09 2017 23:42
no cats don't have any achievements
although people have asked for a 0AP tracking achievement
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 09 2017 23:57
also, there's unlocalized text for the new pvp achievement titles :P
