@BoyC, you can try to buy up items off the TP that have valuable sigils
you basically get the sigil guaranteed and about 1.25 ecto per salvage

Archomeda

well yeah, it's just on the same day as gamescom, and probably close to it as well; just not in the event center :P

What a surprise, the WvW community complains about changes to WvW
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 14:58
yes
and whenever there's no change to WvW, they complain about PvE getting changes
and WvW never gets changes
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 04 2017 14:59
I remember when people complained so much after HoT that WvW never got any attention even after getting an entirely new borderlands map
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 14:59
the more time goes on, the more i'm inclined to believe that those people in the wvw forums are just stupid 8yr old children that just complain for the sake of complaining
wvw is the most toxic community towards the game itself
those people basically destroy their own game mode
it actually demotivates me to do wvw
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 04 2017 15:02
I think the reason is that nothing in PvE is competitive. Loot is per person, gathering nodes are per person, we're all responsible for our own healing etc. But in WvW, the game mode is centred around competition. I'd wager that ends up with a higher concentration of competitive people that are more ready to get worked up over things
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 15:03
it's not even that much of a competition really
at least, that's not how i see it
instead of people actually being interested in gliding in wvw, my wvw guild discord is not really talkative about it, and one person responds like: well, gliding is bad cuz that's not what they should focus on
wvw people tend to not be constructive
not saying that all wvw players are like that, thankfully

WvW is fun if you just..don't go to the forums.
Of course, we have a few..very vocal people we have to deal with in team chat as well. Right, @idivait ?

Might be dumb and blind, but what are the IDs under unlocked on https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/account/mastery/points referencing?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 16:34
the ids from /v2/maps iirc
actually, it might be /v2/continents instead
David Reeß
@queicherius
Aug 04 2017 16:38
Mine looks like [3, 4, 5, ...] and I cant find IDs matching that anywhere on maps/continents
AH! Found it. It's in /v2/achievements

oh right, there are MP from achievements too

Aug 04 2017 16:42
Aren't all mastery points tied to an achievement?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 16:43
well, not all
there's that one MP that's completely on its own :P
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Aug 04 2017 16:43
Which one? The one you get for free?

and was forgotten

hm. login server having issues?
ah just being slow (over 2 mins for a login)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 16:48
guild chat just had a lag spike
so, it wouldn't surprise me
my login is slow this week in general actually
taking up to 10 seconds to log in
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Aug 04 2017 16:49
maybe people coming back to gw2 after the PoF announcement?
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 04 2017 16:53
gem prices definitely felt all those 4k gems turning into gold :D
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 04 2017 16:54
I wonder if it's a good time to buy them
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 04 2017 16:54
i already did
just look at the spike during 2016 august's sale
went from 26->39 gold for 100 gems
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 16:55
yeah
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 04 2017 16:55
so if you plan on buying stuff in the sale, it's a good time
if you plan on making more gold on it, i wouldn't
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 16:55
has it already been 3 days after the pof reveal?
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 04 2017 16:55
the margin is too high
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 04 2017 16:56
Hmm, I already dropped nearly a thousand gold for a full set of the unbound magic gathering tools. I'm wary to buy more gems now
BoyC

i got a request for the ts3 window being a bit more opaque in taco...
it's so nice to just write them back to "edit the css there."
i have bl chest fever, but trying to keep it under control :D
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 04 2017 18:10
bl chests are so bad value :(
I did buy keys for the elemental sword tho
and didnt get it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 18:11
they are a bad value even if you get the keys for free when doing map completion
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 04 2017 18:16
they got better tho
with the guaranteed wardrobe unlocks
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 04 2017 18:51
i've only seen 1
from the many chests i opened
BoyC
@BoyC
Aug 04 2017 19:46
i got a lot of guaranteed unlocks
that's basically what i'm collecting
only way of getting the mini wurms now for my dune themed char
