    • Ghastly Grinning Shield Skin
    • Greatsaw Greatsword Skin
    • Grinning Gourd Rifle Skin

COSTUME BRAWL

  • Costume Brawl is a spontaneous battle for points that can occur anywhere in the world by using town clothes, toys, and transformation tonics.
  • Equip town clothes, toys, or consume transformation tonics to gain access to Costume Brawl skills. Costume Brawl skills are labeled as such in their descriptions.
  • Using Costume Brawl skills puts you into Costume Brawl mode and makes you a valid target for other brawlers. 
  • Use your Costume Brawl skills to hit other players in Costume Brawl mode to gain points and avoid being disabled by taking too many hits yourself.
  • Gaining points in Costume Brawl is fun and can earn you achievements. 
  • To exit Costume Brawl, use the Time Out skill.
  • Entering combat will automatically remove you from Costume Brawl.

Could be fun...

ACHIEVEMENTS
In response to several letters from the Tyrian Explorers Society, we have made the following changes to recognized achievements:

  • Added karma rewards to daily and monthly achievements.
  • Added 19 new exploration achievements to the “Explorer” achievement list, including “Dive Master,” which tracks unique diving goggle uses.
  • Added a new “Jumping Puzzles” achievement category.
    • Moved all existing jumping puzzle achievements from the “Explorer” category to the “Jumping Puzzles” category.
    • Added 4 additional jumping puzzle achievements.
  • Added a new “Bosses” achievement category.
    • The “Crash Landing” achievement has been moved from the “Explorer” category to the “Bosses” category.
    • Added 7 new boss achievements.

Really happy about getting Karma from Daily and Monthly 'cheevos.

EVENTS
There is a skritt burglar on the loose in Tyria! Adventurers that encounter this thieving rodent are encouraged to confiscate whatever loot they can shake out of her.

  • Added over 30 events across the game.
  • Fixed a stuck event chain in Straits of Devastation.
  • Fixed a blocking bug in the event “Defend the Leaders of Caer Evermore from the Risen” in Timberline Falls.
  • Fixed a potential blocking bug caused by the event “Destroy the Risen broodmother to free Rakkan” in Cursed Shore. 
  • Fixed a potential blocking bug in the event “Rescue Scholar Alil Rodez” in Lornar’s Pass. 
  • Fixed a bug preventing Siege Master Marith from collecting catapult parts in Kessex hills.
  • Fixed a bug preventing Tactician Footi from setting up her cannon in Cursed Shore.
  • Fixed a bug preventing skritt from being driven out of Nentor’s Mine in Lornar’s Pass.
  • Lengthened the time between events when attempting to hold Arah and made repeated attempts at holding Arah more difficult.
  • Lengthened the time between events when attempting to hold the Temple of Grenth.
  • Lengthened the time between events when attempting to hold the Temple of Melandru and made repeated attempts at holding the Temple of Melandru more difficult.

Hmm... so is the theiving Skritt like finding a Treasure Pygmy in D3?  If so very yes.

Also +30 events what?!

Got your fill of the Mad King?  Well don't rest yet because another special event is coming November 15th!  This one has no holiday attached to it, but promises a weekend event where players can leave a lasting impression on this new island we will be able to travel to and do pve on.  Also coming is a new dungeon with many levels that gets harder the deeper you descend, so high level dungeon crawlers have something else to look forward to.

More of us are hitting 80 which is great.  Grats to Torvis (Dominion's Thief) for being the latest 80 in our group.

In case I didn't make this publically known, I am skill 400 in both Weaponsmithing and Armorsmithing now, so if you're looking for someone to help you make level 80 rare or exotic gear, Sera Spellsong can help you.

Here's the rub though - I cannot spare the materials to make edit: the exotics right now (I can help with rares probably) so I'm going to need you to tell me what you want and help me with material costs in order to hook you up.

Also I recommend doing your daily achievements in Orr as much as you can once you hit level 75, at least the kills, gatherings, and events parts anyway.  The high level crafting materials are worth it.

The other thing I'd recommend, if you're not doing yet, is vendoring every blue & green you don't want to keep, and any yellow (rare) that you aren't going to get much for on the BLTC instead of salvaging it.  The value of 1 silver and some copper is worth a lot more than the pitance of crafing materials you'll earn from salvaging it.  If you could get things like 400 skil vials of blood or something it might be worth it, but you don't, so just vendor them.  You'll make gold MUCH faster that way, and can use that gold to get crafting materials/safe up for armor sets, etc.  I'm sitting on 11 gold right now waiting for when I finally spend the time to craft my own level 80 exotics (should be more than enough).

Indeed I am 80! Knowing me I'll probably dick around a little bit on my 80 then hop over and start leveling some other character cause I'm weird like that. If I'm ever on another character feel free to pester me for high level stuff if you want. I'm generally cool with swapping to do stuff with folks. I am also working on my leatherworking so hopefully I'll have that up to 400 soon for exotic item goodness.

Hopefully will hit 80 sometime this week -- Nate and I are pretty close now.

Is there anything in the works for GW2 character pages?

TBH no, because once launch happened everyone actually was in the guild.  Plus since the friends list is tied to account not character, it sort of felt like a lot of work for me to build and then a lot of work for each of us to maintain that in the end wasn't going to get used.

People still feel there's a want/need for the feature I can try and find some time to build it.

In other news:

Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows – and we want to make sure that you are not missing out, so here is a schedule (without spoilers) for you, so you can plan ahead:

  • On Friday November 16th at noon PST (20:00 GMT) the weekend will kick off with an Event in Lion’s Arch that you don’t want to miss. This will trigger events in other parts of Tyria as well.
    *On Saturday November 17th at noon PST (20:00 GMT), another phase will kick in.
    Each phase is triggered by a special event, but you will be able to enjoy additional content afterwards even if you cannot make the kick-off time. There is one exception:

The event will culminate in a big Finale on Sunday November 18, make sure you will not miss it. This will be a onetime only event chain that will run multiple hours, and it will kick off at noon PST (20:00 GMT). Again, this will only run once, so make sure you will be there! There will be plenty of content available to enjoy that will remain permanently in the world as a result of the outcome of this event on Sunday.

We will give you more details once we get closer to the event, but wanted to give you an early heads up so you can plan accordingly.

Check out Massively's primer on the Lost Shores event!

Reading this reminds me I need to get back to work on Dungeons at some point.
