Hi, I'm writing a new client for the API (mostly for my own benefit).
I noticed a discrepancy with the skills info.
One of the skills (Armor of Earth, ID 5777) doesn't contain some of the non-optional fields like type.
I was wondering if I should report it or just make such fields optional?

Strange. 5777 isn't even a skill reported by /v2/professions. Did it get replaced..?

Thats one of the skills triggered by a trait
I ran into the same issue with the same skill too
(and made type optional to fix it)

Ah, I didn't realize it was a trait skill (still haven't levelled an Ele).

To be fair, Armor of Earth is also a utility skill

Hmm. I'll mark it as a bug on the wiki page.

The utility skill has a different id than the one triggered by the trait

Thanks, I'll make it optional. I'm mapping to Kotlin and it complained about the missing value for a non-null field.

is there a way to query reddit, maybe using an api, for how many comments are in a particular thread?
windwarrior

there is a reddit api
it is meh, but it works
ChieftainAlex

I'd kinda like to plot number of comments vs date for all of the threads in r/guildwars2 beginning with the title "Weekly /r/GuildWars2 Question Thread"

yeah, just found that too
my dev tracker uses the reddit api
and I remember it being meh to work with
I slowly start to remember why
I am still fairly convinced that my dev tracker thing can go enormously out of sync when a dev spams a subreddit
Archomeda

Aug 17 2017 21:11
@lye test it
windwarrior

I'll do static analysis with my own eyes
yeah, if a dev spams 100 messages in another subreddit right after putting a few in /r/guildwars2, my tool wont show those
because I am first retrieving the 100 newest posts, and then deleting everything that was not in /r/guildwars2

@lye the tome skill from firebrand profession are missing in the api, do you add/whitelist them as a part of tomorrows update? or should I add it to #557 ?
