All the Jumping Puzzles

Jumping puzzles are my bane. There are so many of them! The good thing is they’re worth 10AP each, so if you go after the ones that are easier to complete, you can get a nice chunk.

For the daily it becomes a bit easier depending on which jumping puzzle you need to do. There is typically always a mesmer nearby willing to port you up to the finish line. I admit now, I have done that a time or two (or three) before. Jumping puzzles and me simply don’t get along.

More Events

The latest event has us back to killing world bosses. Kill a boss, mine a node, get a little item that sells on the black lion market for around 4 gold (at this time, I expect it will drop) and an essence you can use to make some shiny weapon skins.

The weapon skins are for the new raid zone that was just released. It’s an opportunity for those who don’t raid to get some new pretties – and I think that’s a neat idea. I have collected a handful of the essences now, but I am not sure what else I need to get the shiny skins, so I’ll need to look into that as the event progresses.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

A New Event

ArenaNet has been on top of their game lately with all of the events taking place. I can’t wait until the 7th anniversary which is quickly approaching. Not only will my characters get to celebrate another birthday, but I bet there’s some neat stuff going on (or at least I hope so).


I love how unique you can be in Guild Wars 2. Everyone says end game is Fashion Wars – and they’re not wrong.


One of my legendary pieces required me to do a collection where you could only purchase 1 piece each day – and needed 13 pieces. One came from the ground nearby, but the rest required map currency and a lot of patience. To get to the collection vendor you also had to do a map event. I decided to park an alt there for the duration of my purchases so I could skip at least that one part.

Now I’ve got a neat miniature Zinn – and my legendary update. YAY!

Nearing 5k AP

So Meta

There is an insane amount of people participating in map meta events this week because ArenaNet is running a bonus box event where you can get extra rewards. The majority of the events have to be in PoF zones (HoT only has one map meta that counts towards the event, as an example) so I spent a good portion of the day hanging out in the Elon Riverlands doing the pre-meta event (Augury Rock) and then the Doppleganger (meta event that actually counts towards the bonus).

I didn’t get anything exciting, but it sure was fun to see so many people around.

I’ll get to 5,000

I’m close to 4500 achievement points, but I really want 5,000. I am hoping I can get it by the end of June. Lets see how it goes! It helps that I still have a lot of jumping puzzles to complete, and they reward 10 points each.

Working Towards a Legendary

I’m getting close to finishing the first collection (I think there are 3 or 4) for the precurser to the axe that I want to eventually get. Legendary weapons are something that I have dreamed about since I knew they were a thing, but I have never actively worked towards one. So far it has been alright – I do need to complete a fractal, but I’m hoping I can get that done on the weekend. The other item I need takes 12 days of merchant purchased items, so while it’s simple, it’s timegated.

The final item I need is to just turn in all the other items – not too big a deal. I hope.

Wish me luck!

API Issues

The GW2 API has been having some massive issues lately that have affected how the value of my account is shown on GW2Efficiency. Shame, because I keep looking to to get some gear for my mesmer, but with the API down, it never works properly.

Hopefully it’s back up and running before too long.
