/sigh
anet please make that IP verification optional and ask me for an auth code each time i log in. thanks.
it eventually gets made optional

i hope so
oh you're already at a /8
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 18:01
currently it is insecure convenience
I don't think it goes past /8 actually
but you can have multiple /8's on your account
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 18:02
oh i'm glad
84.x is about all IPs in Germany
I think you can have up to 256 /8's on there Kappa

meanwhile in wildstar people cried for a convenient login and they still ask for auth codes each login xD

I'm confused, the wiki doesn't list a choice for that chest?
smiley

uhh, i think that's also a different one
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Oct 12 2017 21:41
What are the choices for the chest?
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:41
that one opens a trade window wich offers a choice of wvw items, badges, transmutation charges etc.

I know the chest you mean, but I can't quite recall exactly what was in it
In my guild, we always used them for Tactic blueprints

But Testimonies are always nice, you can unlock HoT/PoF recipes and hero challenges
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:44
yea, went with these for now
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:45
there are 2 chests now
the one before the PoF update, and the one after it
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:46
the german wiki says it's a different chest now
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya

That's just if you stockpiled the previous ones, right?

the one you linked it just a rank-up from wvw and contains a tome + some testimonies

yup that one, @Eearslya

indeed

dude, we already know there are several of these :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:49
(btw, the wiki is wrong on that list)
(last time i checked, the PoF chest only gives 1 superior siege blueprint case, instead of 2 like the HoT one did)

y u no read chat

are you trying to say the chest you're opening isn't on the wiki?
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:50
going to find out the id tomorrow
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:50
which is just a rank up chest
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:51
well, not where i'd expect it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:51
the one you mean, is supposed to be https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Skirmish_Chest
otherwise the api is also wrong
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Oct 12 2017 21:51
I mean, the one that you described as opening a trade window definitely sounds like Skirmish Chest. And in that case, I stand by my suggestion about getting Testimonies.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:51
that name the bot links is taken from the api directly
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:51
it was def a chest of the mists
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:52
not with the id you linked:
{
  "name": "Chest of the Mists",
  "description": "Double-click to open. Contains Testimonies of Heroics and a Tome of Knowledge.",
  // ...
}
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:52
probs not that id tho
...
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:53
i still doubt it was called a chest of the mists
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:53
stop doubting me, i'm not a dumb kid
it was 100% a chest of the mists
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:54
if you don't believe go wvw and see yourself

dude
i wouldn't ask if i wasn't confused about the wiki
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:55
if you got a chest of the mists, it would show up on the api, and gw2treasures would have an entry of it
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:56
the german wiki doesn't list this one either
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Oct 12 2017 21:56
but the api would

it's okay smiley you can do a screenshot later, doesn't have to be now
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 21:59
the 3 chests of the mists that are listed on the wiki as wvw are 85063, 77504, 75650
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 21:59
(re confusing wiki, since i've started playing again and using it, i found there are a lot of flaws in the navigation and several other things)
(maybe i'll write them down one day)
(while the german wiki is worse in this case)

imma find out tomorrow if none does in the meantime
well, i can't check, because i only get skirmish chests
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:02
well, you could obtain them...
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 22:03
through which method?
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:03
kill stuff?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 22:04
that's... kinda vague :/
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:04
cap camps, towers 'n keeps
just regular wvw stuff
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 22:05
did you get it from a wiggly chest?
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:05
i think from both, that wiggly chest and probably loot
didn't take notice
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2017 22:06
because the wiggly chest gives this: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/File:WXP_rank_up.jpg
what... no inline -_-
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:06
i had 5 of them which is about the number of places i just capped

unrelated but i'm so smart
like SO smart
i just obtained the first Bifrost book thingy
and for that achievement you need 800 bloodstone dust
by the time i did wvw back in the day i got countless of these and guess what
i've got a stack of bricks now <.<
so glad i can salvage them now back to dust xD
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:27
can you add a nav box that links to the other levels of it (including Bifrost)?
(same for the other legendaries ofc)
smiley
@codemasher
Oct 12 2017 22:38
the navbox should link to everything needed for the unlocks etc.
like:
 unlock | collection | result | weapon
--------|------------|---------|---------
 The Bifrost Vol. 1 | The Bifrost I: The Experimental Staff | Chest of Ancient Mysticism | The Legend Experiment
...

i don't bother, you get the point ;)

funny tho that it is already kinda like that on the Legend Experiment page
anyway, it's hard to get there
