Adjusted the no-gameplay area around the Alpine Borderlands jumping puzzle.
the no-what area?
is that a fancy way to say the jumping puzzle crashed your client? XD

<link rel="preload"> only works correctly in chrome atm
Other browsers can't load the css

Yeah I'm probably going to change that
Just changing preload to stylesheet works
But the speeeed

Does anyone knows where can I find the new specialization IDs? the API seems to not be updated yet: https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/specializations
Archomeda

Aug 11 2017 16:26

lol the backend server is very aggressively filtering out details for unreleased stuff

:point_up: 10 augustus 2017 19:41

ele and mesmer have some issues with their skills listing on the API atm because of the new elite specs :(
so don't count on the API being updated until next week when the new elite spec demo is live
Bhagawan69
@Bhagawan69
Aug 11 2017 16:28
I need the IDs QQ and since you can't BETA in PVP I gotta wait for ppl to unlock the elite spec
only then I can see the IDs
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 16:31
wait, weren't the elite specs only next week?
and this weekend only story?
(i haven't logged in yet today)
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 11 2017 16:43
Yeah I think there is no elite specs yet @Bhagawan69
But also not yet home
maybe @thatshaman or any other dataminer can find some

@JC123 knows a lot of the .dat file
oh come on
image.png
hmm I wonder if the specialization ids on dev are the same as live
they potentially could be different, otherwise I'd just paste the dev version of /v2/specializations :<
JC123
@JC123
Aug 11 2017 17:08
you want all of them?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 11 2017 17:19
@JC123 are all elite specs in the dat?

why exactly do chatlinks from stage/dev generate different game ids to live?
internally everything has a guid id that's authorative
when a build happens any referenced guid that doesn't have a integer id is assigned one
dev/stage/live have different stripping rules (e.g., different content is excluded from each environment)
so the id assignments aren't always the same
for specializations, turns out they are since no specializations are ever stripped
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Aug 11 2017 18:02
yeah definitely noticed they weren't the same previously, didn't realize why
but that's a rarity
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Aug 11 2017 18:03
e.g. the id for shadow abyss dye ends up being something like a random exotic staff :<

number one reason to buy the expansion, another fraudulent ecto dealer has arisen

Aug 11 2017 18:44

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 18:45
THIS IS MY DEMO CHAR THAT'S WHY

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 18:45

windwarrior
@windwarrior
Aug 11 2017 18:45
oh god, it should have had an "all in" button
there we go, full ascended with stat infusions on my beta char
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 18:47
i swapped my legendary gear to it XD
okay, i did an all-in twice now
i ended up with the same amount of gold and ectos XD
lye... can you "work" yourself into the database and move these ectos and gold to my main characters...? hehe
i'm too lazy for that
Archomeda
@Archomeda

Aug 11 2017 18:50

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 18:50
yes
that's true
i even moved 2 stacks of ecto from my guild bank to my char before i created a demo character
but i'm sure that if i do this with tarkktun, i'll lose everything i own :D

I think they intentionally bumped up the win rates for the beta
A friend of mine made a whole bunch of gold from it earlier
Do you remember what happened last expansion with one of the betas where people were getting really high precursor drop rates from the Mystic Forge?

Archomeda

Aug 11 2017 21:19
why is my demo character having issues with typing ' with dead keys?
i get '' instead of a dead key ' XD
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 11 2017 21:30
Dead key?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Aug 11 2017 21:34
yeah, it remembers the key until you type another
it allows you to easily type characters like áèï etc
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Aug 11 2017 21:35
Oh right
I forgot those were a thing
