Elementalist Weapon Skills, Weapon slots
by MaLeVoLenT.8129 in API Development

Endpoint: /v2/skills
Each endpoint for skills (specifically weapon skills) has an slot attribute. I'm currently tracking the slot attribute to make a build calculator and it seems to be changing values within the API. Not only that, but not all Elementalist weapon skills have a attunement attribute. Some of them have Specialization attributes when they shouldn't.

Examine off-hand Elementalist Dagger and Focus abilities.

Cone of Cold
https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/skills?ids=5537
Currently as I'm writing this, the slot attribute is set to "Weapon_1". Which is wrong. Cone of Cold is weapon skill 2 on Dagger. However, this value appears to be changing periodically? It took me quite awhile to figure out, I initially thought it was a logical error on my side but its appearing like this in the API. Sometimes it actually does read correctly and says "Weapon_2"

[API] Unique Account Name to GUID
by jurtjee.8943 in API Development

Hey,

I have a question, but I do not think it is possible.

But the question is: Is it possible to get a user through his unique account name his GUID without his access key? The reason for this is because you can not rely on his unique account name because it can change.

Sincerely,
Jur Dekker

Gold to Gem prices are not working.
by Tapni.4917 in API Development

Sadly I don't have knowledge to develope API. But I can't be the only one who has noticed that all the trackers using API have reported gem prices at same amount since Jan 11 2018. Still googling about this problem you don't get a single proper hit. To whom should this bug be informed?
I'd like to know when to buy my gems. ;)
