wow. completely missed the drama last week
as an ex mmo dev who has seen such a community from the other side as well, i don't even...
there are two ways to best describe such a community as it relates to all this. they are enthusiastic and they often don't know the intricacies of what they're theorycrafting about. all mmo devs have experienced this i think. that reaction was uncalled for, given the nature of the communication.

New discussion in API Development:

skills: different icons for different languages
by Nokomis.5076 in API Development

I have found the following skills, which have a different icon for different (checked de and en) languages.

Example:
https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/skills?ids=9112&lang=en

[
{
"name": "Ray of Judgment",
"icon": "https://render.guildwars2.com/file/D50E0BDA07479939275BCB53A2670FC6B808BE29/2010287.png",
}
]

well, other than gitter inserting the image, thats how it looks on the forum
And I don't think there is a way to prevent the embed in gitter...

:D
yeah, gitter not automatically converting emojis anymore...
but images are still automatically inlined
thanks gitter
Being on topic however, the output of those 2 different languages don't only vary with the icon.
The German version has 2x Apply Buff/Condition there, whereas the English version doesn't
What is correct however...

It was changed today:

Ray of Judgment: This skill has been reworked and now targets a single foe, inflicting repeated damage to them over time if they are struck by the initial attack.

So I guess the German version is outdated
Did the icon also change then?
I'm gonna check, the wiki hasn't updated it if it actually was changed

it has changed
So the German version is just from the previous build
Did the server miss the update or something? Or did the cache simply not expire?

Just checking now, they look the same to me. Sounds like cache to me

Maybe a difference between us/eu again?
Here it shows different data when changing the language

must be:

anyway, I'm just checking the other skills that were mentioned in that forum post... and again I'm seeing caching related problems similar to the TP etc
first load on DE: wrong
after 1 or a couple of refreshes: correct

On the Positive side; #636 isn't jumping anymore for me, so that's something about Caching that seems to work now again.
Guess that already got done :o

Unfortunatelly have to correct that to "didn't jump then, but now does again" :/
Ok ok, i'll leave
