    All of my graphics settings reverted to default, so if you log in and things look different, that might be why.

    Patch Notes for those of us behind firewalls.

    LIVING WORLD

    Queen’s Jubilee
    A celebration to commemorate ten years of Queen Jennah’s rule is about to kick off in Divinity’s Reach! The queen has commissioned a new gladiatorial arena for the occasion—the Crown Pavilion—as a shining symbol of her people’s endurance. Take a hot air balloon ride with dignitaries from across Tyria to the capital of the Krytan nation, and be there for the opening ceremony. Join in the festivities and compete in ceremonial combat in Her Majesty’s honor!

    Hot Air Balloons
    The queen’s court has sent out hot air balloons to transport celebrants! Look for balloon towers all over Tyria.
    Ascend to the top of a balloon tower to claim a royal gift before embarking on the journey to Divinity’s Reach.
    Watch for all-new dynamic events as the balloon pilots may need help keeping everything running smoothly.
    A special hot air balloon souvenir will be given to players who are festive enough to visit 30 towers.

    The Crown Pavilion
    The arts district in Divinity’s Reach that was destroyed by the Great Collapse has been rebuilt into the Crown Pavilion, a grand arena that will host Kryta’s biggest events.
    Enter the Queen’s Gauntlet to battle mighty representations of humanity’s most vicious enemies.
    Visit the emissaries from six major nations of Tyria. A unique set of boons to improve magic find and combat stats will be available to those who wish to represent the emissaries.
    Earn Watchwork Sprockets, a new trophy from the Watchknights, to purchase rewards from the emissaries. Purchasable rewards include:
    New Sovereign weapon sets
    New crafting recipes for runes and sigils
    Cultural weapon sets

    The Queen’s Gauntlet
    Face increasingly difficult challenges in single combat against a variety of unique bosses.
    Take a risk with special gambit conditions to earn even more prestigious rewards.
    Each entry and gambit costs one Queen’s Gauntlet ticket. Tickets drop regularly from creatures in the Crown Pavilion and around the world. Players may also purchase tickets from the emissaries in the Crown Pavilion.

    Opening Ceremony
    Witness the unveiling of the Crown Pavilion in a brand new Living World story instance featuring familiar faces such as Queen Jennah, Logan Thackeray, Countess Anise, Lord Faren, Rox, and Braham.
    Rumors are running high that the queen will be taking volunteers for the inaugural contest with the Watchknights. There’s no telling who might show up!
    Enter the instanced area simply by visiting the Crown Pavilion for the first time.

    Beacons of Kryta
    Find torchbearers around Divinity’s Reach to activate a special time-limited race to light several beacons around the city.
    Successfully complete all four torch runs to earn the Flames of Kryta, a permanent item that can be used to illuminate the player’s path through darkness.

    Achievements
    A rotation of Living World achievements has been added to the Daily Achievement category.
    Completing the Queen’s Jubilee meta-achievement awards the player a Mini Watchknight. Completing this meta-achievement requires players to complete 18 achievements from either the Queen’s Jubilee category or the jubilee-related dailies.

    Exotic Drop
    Play Queen’s Jubilee content for a chance at the exotic Watchwork Portal Device recipe.
    The recipe requires a level 400 artificer. It requires 5 Orichalcum Ingots, 1 Master Tuning Crystal, 1 Charged Lodestone, and 75 Watchwork Sprockets.
    The Watchwork Portal Device is a one-time use consumable that allows players to create a portal between two points. It cannot be used in conjunction with the mesmer’s portal.

    NEW FEATURES AND CONTENT

    World vs. World
    Supply Mastery has been added to the Ranks and Abilities tab.
    Picking up supply is now instant.
    Gains swiftness when the entire supply is spent.
    Gains courier speed and increases movement speed by 50% after picking up supply.
    Gains a chance to recover some supply after it’s spent.
    Deployed siege sites gain 3 seconds of invulnerability.

    Currency Wallet
    All players now have a new currency wallet that can be found in the Hero panel. All currencies on a character are transferred to the player’s currency wallet when they log in with that character. Players will need to log in with all of their characters to get all of their currency transferred.
    All currencies are now account bound.

    What a surprise, sovereign is another oversized, ridiculous looking set.

    However, if those new exotics look like they may be decent if that spear is an indication. Don't like the crystal spearhead, but the shaft looks very krytan.

    The transmutation reverses are, meh. Just another gem store item. I'd really prefer the appearance as dye system I was hoping one of the devs suggested.

    So, popped in real quick to check on the wallet and karma conversions (I wrote all mine down, cause I'm like that). A few disturbing things:

    Giant Ellen hologram at the old fountain, creepily peering down upon LA, Emperor style.

    Crown pavilion - no floor, just a pit for gladiators to fall to their doom. And droid...er, clockwork guards everywhere. Methinks this is all getting very Star Wars fall of the republic like. Its time for a revolution. Who's with me, for the Glorious People's Republic of Kryta! (yeah yeah, LA is separate...)

  • mccartmccart Registered User regular
    Yeah I lucked out with the support tokens. I didn't feel strongly either way for the candidates so being oblivious to the deadline allowed me to get around six gold instead.

    While racing light mechs, your Urbanmech comes in second place, but only because it ran out of ammo.

    Ok. welcome to the new age. Either there is no way this stays the way it is or theres about to be mega inflation.

    people making 30-40 g and hour. Drops left and right and all over all packed in and totally farm able. full packs 4-5 times an hour.

    for a game that actively hunts down farm strats and patches them out - this is completely fucking insane.

    So, at work, but some of what I'm reading is this high gold making is from selling on the TP? Is it actually 10-30g added to the economy (ie direct coin drops and vendor'd loot), or that a lot of previously more rare items are dropping which sell for a good chunk on the TP. If its this last, then those prices are gonna drop, and its not really inflation, since its not more money.

    But if its actual coin creation, then it could be bad.

    Dangit, apparently they just patched the gauntlet tickets soulbound for no good reason. WTF? When Anet specifically designed the arena to possibly need different builds or classes for different bosses...

    Edit - dulfy is adding more found skins from champs. The rapier is unnamed so far? Or just they are using its preview code?
    (apparently they are, codes found here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/1jt7ek/item_codes_from_queens_jubilee/ )

    There's a version of the Krytan shield that will display the guild crest! And a wicked looking curved dagger down there.

    Its rare drops.

    And its not just the pavilions. Go find a hot air baloon. Talk to pilot. Pilot will give quick quest. Do quest get boss chest at top of ballon tower. Seriously.

    They gotta be prepping us for t7/ascended armor/ a new gear tier or something. It just seems odd given how stingy the game has been.

    I don't want inflation, I just spent months grinding to ~350 gold to buy Dusk, this'll make the price go up.

    Unless like Joiry said and it's rare drops. That'll make the price of ectos probably go down, which is fine with me.

    I don't think it's the gold particulary - I've been playing a few hours and gained 4 gold, but its not mad money. It's really the 400 skill crafting materials which seem to drop like candy from the pavilion.

    I wonder what the drop rates on the champions skins are. Some of the ones in the Dulfy gallery don't have names yet, which I imagine means they haven't dropped yet, just datamined.

    People were probably making a lot of gold when the patch first came out, but now that most of the higher buy orders on the TP have been filled, it's probably going to even out. That said, guess get your T6 while you can because it will go back up after the event, in theory.

    I would hold your cash- new legendaries are coming and the t6 drops like candy- save up the piece parts and let the gold/prices shake out and decide.

    And if geod is correct (i think he is. ) you should just bank those t6 and sell them a week into the Halloween event when theres no queens thing to grind.

    For a while all the champions in the pavilion dropped the new champ loot which often has t6 mats inside the bags, but that seems to have stopped. Since people were killing a champion almost every minute for a while, that is where all the income was coming from.

    Legendaries? Pffft, I want the rapier.

    Besides, new legendaries, by Anet's very design purpose, will be ridiculously ostentatious designs. Which some people love, just not me.

    You had to see it coming. its as if the loot team and the sprinkle champs all over the queens jubilee team never speak.

    If T6 is no longer dropping then buy them cheap now and resell when it goes back up.
