you'll get the invite regardless of being on or off, you'll just have to make sure you represent us after joining, or you won't see the chat.

they updated the patch notes. apparently the devil horns had been removed from the store because people were shoving it in the mystic forge. it's been fixed and now you can buy them. also "Fixed an issue when Halloween creatures could infinitely spawn from Haunted Doors" now it makes so much more sense. so you knock on the door, and you either get a bag of treats, or you get a veteran mob to spawn.BrunoBRS

Ah so that how those doors work. And yay a free item, I will check out the horns when I get back on.

#205 Posted by Nitrowing (217 posts) -

So the doors were bugged good thing i got 100 kills before they fixed them go go spamming #1 with a staff

Yeah I love it, and of course I spam jokes later lol. Also gotten a few achievements, one of which I gotten after throwing up twice in a row.:P

Went to add a new dye set for the Mad Queen:

And it doesn't look bad on a Charr (the chain tail is a nice touch).

#210 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -

looks so damn stupid on a charr lol. did you have to transfer the clothes via bank? or can you purchase aditional sets of that costume for free?

and what achievements? i ate 130 candy corns in a row and didn't get anything other than monthly progression.

BrunoBRS

You can transfer the outfit via bank. And it doesn't look that bad on the charr lol, through definitely looks much better on a human.

And actually I might have just gotten a milestone progress one for the candy corn. It looks like the achievement is 50 candy corns.

#212 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -
the monthly achievement is 150 candy corns. since i completed said monthly achievement, i'd expect any candy-corn-eating-related achievement to be done.

I was thoroughly disappointed that the vendor "The Crossing" was only a temporary item. Only thing I was looking forward too. Now if I wanna get the permanent one, I have to no-life it and get 500 CoE tokens. Yaaaaaa.... No thanks.

Sometimes I really hate this game.

can't expect everything the event has to offer on a plate for you to pick up casually. they added those rental weapons exactly because they didn't want people who couldn't just craft the permanent ones to feel left out. the permanent ones are, after all, lv80 exotics which you can only get the recipe to during one time of the year.

#222 Posted by Wanderer5 (25726 posts) -

Looking at the patch notes, I glad they improved the leap of faith and symbol of wrath. I hearing some exciting stories for the getting Halloween skins from chests through, and I amaze that some people brought like 100+ chests.

Pfft my Hounds still looks more badass than one cat with a hat.:x How come the other one doesn't have one lol?

Also I agree with you about the town outfits in the GW2 forums. I don't mind if the Halloween costumes are town outfits, but I hate that apparently even the slightest damage from a fall or you go underwater gets you back into combat armor.:\

#223 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -

^ because the one with a hat is summoned.

i only paid attention to the thief nerfs, hopefully this will make people shut up about backstab builds, but who am i kidding?

and yeah it's annoying. if anyone wants to add their voice to the cause of improved costume behavior, post in this thread. or on this thread on the halloween forum.

can't expect everything the event has to offer on a plate for you to pick up casually. they added those rental weapons exactly because they didn't want people who couldn't just craft the permanent ones to feel left out. the permanent ones are, after all, lv80 exotics which you can only get the recipe to during one time of the year.

First off, please quote me where I specifically said I wanted it on a plate so I could just pick it up, basically getting it without effort?

Second, it's a holiday Item. You can introduce a number of ways that would actually be fun in order to get the items. 500 Token + 40 Elonian Wine + some dust I haven't even seen + etc... That's not fun, that's grindy / boring. Not to mention you'd have to level another profession (the cost) just to be able to get it.

They could have just implemented various small themed events which would rewarded you holiday only items which in turn you can combine / trade / something-that-doesn't-require-forcing-players-to-do-a-boring-grind-through-boring-content.

Another way would be a reward from finishing a long chain of events leading up to the finale. You'd get offered 1 of the 3. I'm sure there's other / more fun ways to have those items as rewards.

After reading a bit more, it seems that you can craft the recipes even after the event is over. Still, gotta grind through the amazing snorefest dungeons! Woo hoooooo!

like i said, they are still lv80 exotic weapons with unique skins, they should be just as hard to get as the others. don't like grinding? then just rent it. if everyone could easily get them through the holiday events, they wouldn't be so special anymore, drastically reducing the impact of having one or seeing someone with one. IIRC, you don't need to level a specific crafting profession for those specific items. as for the materials, you don't have to get them yourself, the trading post is there for that. the only thing you'd have to get yourself is the gift, and 500 tokens can be obtained rather quickly. and dungeons are boring TO YOU. i love them, and many others do. don't expect ANet to completely ignore dungeons because you find them boring. some people might find the holiday events boring and like dungeons, and want that weapon, why should they be forced therough "boring grindy content" when they could be having fun with dungeons to get the weapon instead? someone will always complain about the method to obtain. last but not least, there are already items you get through the holiday events, like that book you can wear on your back (it's even transmutable).

i've found the most beautiful jumping puzzle. it's one of the ones they added with the halloween update, and it's on mount maelstrom. mount maelstrom is already one of the prettiest areas in the game, and then you give me this, which is THE prettiest area in the game? how am i not supposed to love this map?

http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/3167/guildwars22012102502111.png

and finally, i used sepia (and a bunch of other settings, heavily tweaked) to try and achieve a Shadow of the Colossus vibe. i didn't have much time for experimentation (as i had two friends guarding me as i went back and forth between the settings and the game), but i think i came out with a pretty decent outcome. i saved the settings and will tweak them some more in the future. note: the UI looks like sh!t with the heavy tweaks, but it's nice for pics.

http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/9783/guildwars22012102502273.png

note: the heavy bloom is natural of the area, not an outcome of the mod, and so are the high-contrast areas.

#227 Posted by Wanderer5 (25726 posts) -

Yeah that area was very good, through the reward was kind of crap for me.:\ Also having two or more guardians that have Mad King/Witch outfits around can make the place more crowded.:P

finished tweaking my "Shadow of the Guild Wars 2" settings. very pleased with the results, especially because it's actually playable with it (even though i wouldn't, i like the game with the original artstyIe thank you). being able to swap files and edit them on the fly helps so much.

Well, good news is the prices for the permanent transmute skins for Halloween items are plummeting. The bad news is, the staff is the one not budging as much as the other skins, as every Necromancer and their minions and minions undead dogs (where those dogs died to cats) wants one. It's the price of a Tier 3 cultural item.

Just wait it out, it's still only Act 1 of Halloween with 3 more to go, so there's probably more in store.

So far, I have 1 Halloween Achievement done. >:[. Need about 40 pumpkin carves and 50 halloween monster kills. What I find awesome is that there were still events in Queensdale that I found, or havent done, despite playing through that for my main and for one whole Beta Weekend.

Holy **** at that one path in Crucible of Eternity (think it was Escape using the Experimental Teleporter). The final boss was a pain in the neck and it didn't help that there wasn't a ****ing waypoint close by. Seriously why was the closest waypoint so far away? Should have been one in that room before the Green Lab. Well at least CoE was amazing to look at.

Free headpiece is on the gem store (don't worry, it costs 0 gems). Act 2 of halloween starts today, my guess is that we'll get access to the clock tower with it. I'm almost done with everything that can be done so far, only need a few more bags, some pumpkins to carve and some enemies to kill. And costume brawl, if you count that.

Nitrowing

Well I think I not going to waste much time with it lol. It just one of the many things to do during this event, and such I rather focus my time on other things. Too bad on the missing the boots then, but not like I going out of this event empty handed.

And it hasn't been said what it is, but there this special event that going to happen (it hinted to be the beginning of Act 3) on that day at 12PM PST.
