Feedback 2017/12/21[edit]

Are Domain of Istan metas going to be added? I know Palawadan is every 2 hours at the :45 mark. Not sure about timings for the rest but it would be good to know where to go to farm. :)

Feedback 2018/01/10[edit]

Domain of istan: Palawadan is every 2 hours (uneven GMT hours). Great hall at xx:20 of every hour. Please add it. --- Saelyth's pictureSaelyth / Aens Talk 17:44, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

These two events overlap on odd hours between n+1:20 and n+1:30 - how do you think I should display that here. I can either display the odd palawadan as being shorter in duration (20 min instead of 30 min), or do it some other way. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:26, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Maybe label them as "Event 1 AND event 2" if they overlap, with an alpha layer for colours so we can see it's both at an easy check. - Saelyth's pictureSaelyth / Aens Talk 16:54, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
I've had subsequent information on other talk pages indicating a different time for the Great Hall event, hence i chose not to add it as I believe its just on a "previous end time" + 15 minute timer. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:54, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/02/03[edit]

Please change the dragon stand timer back to what it was before. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 03:19, 4 February 2018 (UTC).

In terms of labels or colour scheme? I feel that the labels are now more accurate than they were before (where it simply said "start"). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:02, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Now I can not figure out when Dragon Stand Meta Starts. It seems all the same. Blighting tower this or that or continue. What phase the meta is in is data not information. The information we need is when does the next meta round begin, so we can plan for it. My 2 c. :) Lancer 13:35, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes it has changed but the previous name wasn't satisfying everyone. We've got to compromise here as we've received both sides of the argument. The segment already has the section title "Dragon's Stand" and the segment includes "start" - this seems pretty obvious to me. - 14:29, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/02/04[edit]

In terms of labels. "Start" is better than this extra stuff. The extra stuff is confusing. I want to know when it starts. There's no reason to know any of the other stuff.

Feedback 2018/03/29[edit]

Fire Elemental's wikilink redirects to [[Destroy the fire elemental created from chaotic energy fusing with the C.L.E.A.N. 5000]] instead of Destroy the fire elemental created from chaotic energy fusing with the C.L.E.A.N. 5000's energy core. I tried to change that I couldn't find the correct spot. --❄The F. Prince❄ (talk) 11:03, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the keen eye. The error is on Widget:Event timer, but only a handful of users with widget editor rights can edit widgets, and neither of us are in that group, so we'll have to wait for someone else to fix it. --Idris (talk) 13:12, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Fixed. 😎 —Ventriloquist 15:21, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/04/01[edit]

Replace with feedback text. -- 15:40, 1 April 2018 (UTC) I have now switched websites for GW2 event timers, as this one has an annoying paperclip with sound now....bad choice

It's just an April Fools' gag, don't worry, it'll be gone tomorrow. In the meantime, you can disable it by clicking on the "Disable C.L.I.P.P.Y." link at the very bottom of the page. :) --Idris (talk) 15:42, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/05/11[edit]

It would be lovely if the awakened incursions were added. -- 19:27, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/06/16[edit]

Would be happy to see gathering storm and specimen chamber added. -- 16:39, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

I'm confident that the Gathering Storms meta is not on a timer -its map based- and depends on the individual map completing the events. I'm less sure about The Specimen Chamber but I think its also map dependent - any proof you've got of the latter being on a timer I'll take a look at. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:34, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/06/22[edit]

Octovine has no waypoint? Any reason why we couldn't link it to [&BMYHAAA=] Iarp (talk) 02:36, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

It's likely because there are 4 waypoints that can be used, not one, and the one you posted is contested before the Octovine starts. - Doodleplex 02:39, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/06/27[edit]

The waypoints for Ley-line anomaly are incorrect. Could these be removed for now please? (Especially since the event is needed for the beetle collection now)

They are the more popular spawn points for each path, so I'm choosing to leave them. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:06, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
You're not understanding, the WP for iron marches is linking to gendarran fields, the WP for gendarran fields is linking to timberline falls and timberline falls is linking to iron marches.
Aha thanks for describing the issue more clearly, yes that is a bug. Probably been around for a few months without anyone noticing. I've pushed the chatlinks around by one cycle, hopefully that will fix it. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:15, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Timberline fall anomaly WP link ([&BOYBAAA=]) is wrong, it points to a WP in Iron Marches. It should be [&BFACAAA=] instead (or any WP in the correct map). -- 23:46, 27 June 2018 (UTC)


The LL Anomaly link for Timberline was showing [&BOYBAAA=], which is the wrong map. (The article for the LL Anomaly does show the correct location.) adding: based on the other comments, it looks like the location display is correct, but the chat code for the wp is offset by the wrong amount -- 05:11, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

fix looks as if it might have done the trick. The Gendar link points to the popular WP in the fields, whereas it wasn't earlier. I'll double check later just in case. Thanks for quick repair.

Festival events?[edit]

I'm not sure if the system is set up to allow temporary timer rows, but it'd be nice to have festival events while the festivals are live (Labyrinthine Cliffs races/treasure hunt and Mad King Says are the big ones).

For Festival of the Four Winds:

  • even:00 - dolyak race
  • even:35 - treasure hunt
  • odd:30 - skimmer race

For Halloween:

  • even:00 - mad king says

BenLubar (talk) 19:32, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Your comment was added about half an hour after I added the Festival of the Four winds timer (2nd from top). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:24, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
The festival is over now, so I guess it could be hidden until next year? -- kazerniel (talk) 12:35, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
It's now hidden by default. If you're seeing it, you may want to "Reset saved preferences". G R E E N E R 15:19, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, that fixed it! -- kazerniel (talk) 10:34, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Just wanted to note that the Wintersday event timer isn't up, if there is one. If someone could update this it would be much appreciated! Ihavethecat (talk) 18:44, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Unless you tell me what should be on the timer I can't add it since there's nothing coded for it. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:09, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/08/03[edit]

Is there any way to code an option to display local times? I know that its set to 24 hour clock, can there be an option to display it as a 12 hour clock

Hi. I've added this feature to a test version: User:Chieftain Alex/sandbox2 -- let me know if you find any bugs, if not I can push these changes live. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:19, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

12-hour times[edit]

12-hour times has 12 AM as 0 AM. — Cronos 04:13, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the prompt. Applied this fix. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:24, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/09/16[edit]

Are we able to go forward in time to see what events are coming up? I see a button (?) labeled "Next 2 hours" is grayed out. If this is not a feature, is it able to be?

It's not currently a button. Generally every set of map events, apart from World bosses, repeats every 2 hours and is exactly the same. World bosses have their own timer page anyway (See also).
If I was to consider this feature I'd need to have a way of (1) pausing the 10 second update, (2) over-riding the current time based initialisation, (3) letting users set the active time window, and (4) resuming auto-update. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:15, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
(1) could be done with clearInterval as is used every 2hr reset anyway + reveal an unpause button, (2) could be done with a third parameter for createEventBars, (3) user select is the hard bit, (4) is probably a button than appears from 1 and deletes the canvas and redraws it using default settings.
Any suggestions you have for addressing (3) would be appreciated. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:26, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay the test version is up at Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Sandbox - see if its as expected. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:25, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Hrm one bug left to fix: make it possible to keep pressing next past midnight, and not blank out all the events, and resume when the offset is +24 hours. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:29, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Request for addition of Thunderhead Peaks metas[edit]

I suggest adding the Thunderhead Peaks map metas to the event timer. They are required for Dragonsblood Weapons and for full map completion. Meta events are as follows (there are 2 total).

Meta 1:

Meta 2:

  • The Oil Floes
  • Waypoint: [&BKYLAAA=] Revolution's Heart Waypoint
  • Starts at every 45 minutes past every even hour UTC (e.g. 00:45, 02:45, 04:45, etc)
  • Has a 15 minute timer to complete the Drill + Oil Reclaimation events before forced meta failure (i.e. event bar on timer should be15 minutes)
  • Boss spawns after successful oil reclaimation

Fam (talk) 21:38, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you Fam, I'll update this tomorrow. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:14, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
Looking great thankyou! One small change is that the durations for the events are reversed: Oil Floes should be 15 minutes and Thunderhead Keep should be 20 minutes. Fam (talk) 21:19, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Argh sheer incompetence on my part. Pre-dinner concentration dive. Thanks for your patience. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:41, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Request for addition of Great Hall Domain of Istan[edit]

Domain of Istan Waypoint: [&BAkLAAA=] Chalon Docks Waypoint POI: Warden's Quarters [&BB4LAAA=] Starts at 20 minutes past every even hour UTC (e.g. 00:20, 2:20, 04:20, etc)

It's already there, third from the bottom. —Ventriloquist 16:04, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
It only has Palawadan, not the Great Hall. -BuffsEverywhere (talk) 16:15, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
There's a comment midway down this page stating it's every hour. If I afk in this map long enough i'll find out and confirm. Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:45, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't get it. It's 19:08, and the Sunspear Uprising meta event is finished with 2 minutes remaining. I still think this is instance based.
Changed instances and found one that hasn't started and is about ready to start at ~19:10.
edit: here's another at 19:27!
I'm thinking the pre-event starts at 18:50 and if everyone afk's it auto-completes in 30 min, otherwise it's done early. Since this is so very dependent on how busy the map is I'm standing by my original decision not to add this timer. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:12, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
Found a map where tje pre-event started at about 19:45. (i.e. more like hourly... seems more likely it just has an event cooldown once completed) - 19:48, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
Event stay up if none one do that or don't spawns at all but timer it's that I wrote
"smiley, Today at 4:26 AM: @ChieftainAlex i can confirm that palawadan is every hour - just go to istan and join the farm train, preferably one that hops maps (EU commanders Batioo and Waxger are there often)" tempted to delete istan entirely. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:59, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
