Talk:Costume Brawl

This needs an edit to reflect the fact that the Costume Brawl does not end with Halloween, as stated on the forums. I'm working on some wording, but if anyone has a good wording they can update it. Vahkris 21:10, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

I thought that was the case since the brawler achievement is in Community instead of Special Event--Relyk 02:37, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

List of Costume Brawl item triggers and skill bars[edit]

How about adding tables with Costume Brawl skill bars to the item pages? E.g. I know that the Plush Griffon form (item triggers: Plush Griffon Tonic, Endless Plush Griffon Tonic and randomly from Endless Toymaker's Tonic) gives you the following skill bar: 1.Griffon Lunge, 2.Griffon Swoop and 3.Griffon Screech 4.None and the standard 5.Enter Costume Brawl->Time Out and 6.Return. Could be a table similar to the one we have for weapon skills, but with some adjustments. Might be useful to be able to look up what skills you'll get. 08Ray 17:56, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Category:Costume Brawl skills--Relyk ~ talk > 18:01, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Didn't know about the category, but couldn't we come up with a format to at least name/link the skills you'll get from a tonic/toy/bundle on it's page? Just having one big category with skill names (not at the moment but that's because a lot of data is still missing now) isn't very organized imo. Especially because in this format the list organizes the skills alphabetically by skill name instead of by tonic/toy/bundle name meaning in the end skills that belong to the same form will be scattered throughout the list. If I knew more about creating wiki tables myself I would have posted an example template, but sadly I don't.
Just copy the format from an environmental weapon page, like Pumpkin. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:28, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Use Mummy Tonic as an example for the tonic and skill pages.--Relyk ~ talk > 18:30, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the examples! EDIT: Just noticed you changed the stuff I added to the Plush Griffon Tonic page Dr Ishmael and that does look better! How did you get the skill icons without the skill number in it? Couldn't figure that out. Also is there a way to add a column with only the icon of effect (like Brawler Damage) and maybe another column for the range (so that it looks the same as Activation and Recharge)? No idea if that's possible because of the way skill effects are documented on the pages themselves, but if so that would really make the info complete. Also how can I add e.g. the Costume Brawl Daze effect into the effect infobox of Griffon Swoop? 08Ray 23:21, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
I would say just use the normal daze effect and give it alt text, i.e. {{Skill infobox/effects|daze|alt=Costume Brawl Daze|3}}. Since they use the exact same icon, and have the exact same effect, we may as well treat them the same. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 00:42, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Only that would make it link to Daze instead of Costume Brawl Daze or should we delete the seperate page for it and create a note or something about CB on the Daze page? But it's at least a way for the effect to appear on the page for now. This still won't work for the Costume Brawler effect btw, because that effect has no normal equivalent like Brawler Damage. 08Ray 02:10, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I just signed on to help a new player figure out which items they could buy on the TP would give them the ability to work on the daily, but there doesn't seem to be a list that makes it easy to figure this out. Is there anyway to automate this? 01:24, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

You can find the Costume Brawl Activity in ......... nowhere I know of yet.

List of things that allow you to costume brawl[edit]

Page needs it. Aside from the witch's cauldron and mad kings banquet and box of fun, what else allows you to costume brawl? Surprised at the lack of info on here, and on ANets behalf. 13:04, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I agree...we need either on the tonic page or this page a list of the tonics that actually allow you to costume brawl. So many of the tonics on the TP only give you a form but not costume brawl skills. Usaf1a8xx (talk) 12:35, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

What does the "s" stand for?[edit]

I apologize if this is a silly question, but what does the "s" stand for in the context of Costume Brawl skill facts? Most attack skills, for example, say "Brawler Damage: 30s" or a block skill might say "Brawler Protection: 3s." I asked a couple of people and everyone assumed "seconds, but that doesn't make any sense." So what does it stand for? ninestories (talk) 19:26, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

"s" means seconds in other skill facts, but I think this is a case of unpolished content. There seems to be a big issue with correct skill tooltips, as every patch seems to have more changes. Manifold User Manifold Neptune.jpg 19:52, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for confirming my suspicions. I wonder if this number will be removed altogether as the amount of stacks really seems to be the only relevant value. ninestories (talk) 19:59, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

"Best" ways to be able to participate in costume brawls forever[edit]

I would like to know what are the easiest and cheapest ways to acquire a permanent costume to play in costume brawl, without having to use cauldrons/boxes/etc.
In other words, these are my requirements:

  • 1. I don't want to have to rely on other players using those group/communal interactive objects like cauldrons and boxes.
  • 2. It is a "permanent" source of a costume (I guess this implies point #1 too). Mainly, it means tonics should be endless/everlasting.
  • 3. Not having to spend gold on the trading post, or real money on the gem store.
    However, if acquiring a costume requires farming that is too time consuming, then I would be willing to spend gold on the TP. In this case, which is the cheapest source of a permanent costume I can buy?
  • 4. The method to obtain the costume must have a 100% chance to yield the costume (I don't want to depend on RNG).
    I don't really enjoy non-guaranteed sources (such as a reward chest that you need to farm multiple times because it's not a 100% chance to drop/loot that item).
  • 5. I'm not good at doing jumping puzzles, so I would like to avoid those.

Also, I'm not concerned with how the costume looks or what its costume brawl skills are. -- 15:06, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

What are the cheapest ways to get an endless tonic or other novelty to access costume brawl?[edit]

Whether it's by buying with gold, or using some other currency. -- 17:32, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
